    I don't know if anyone else is following this story, but once again, some idiot judge has blocked the right of citizens to tell telemarketers not to call.

    If I choose to not recieve some unsolicited phone calls over the phone line that I paid for, how unconstitutional about that?! I also reserve the right to not allow some people into my house, is that unconstitutional also? :mad:

    Kinda hard to get big money to give up their power, isn't it!? :eek:

    BTW
    Here is the argument I heard:
    You can put up a "No Tresspassing" sign and keep everyone off your property.
    You can not put up a "No Tresspassing, except for politicians and charities" sign.

    That is the Telemarketers argument about what the law is supposedly doing.

    I've heard something similar to that, and my response is, "Then don't let any unsolicited calls come over my line. If I want to donate to a charity or political figure, I'll track them down."

    I doubt this issue is even about what is constitutional or not. The judges are getting pay-offs from big business.

    Might just be a coincidence but I have not received even ONE phone call from telemarketers since the first...and I usually get at least 5 to 7 a day! :D
