    Late last nite.I usually don't answer the phone.Its normally not for me,and if it is,its not something good.
    After about 15 rings,I figure its important,so I get up and answer it.
    Another gosh darn campaign ad,pre-recorded call.
    Well I'm going to vote today,never a straight ticket,always take time to research my votes.With all the bombardment of advertising and negativism,I'm about ready to start voting against people instead of for people:sad2: :sad2:

    All I got to say is,its over for 2 more years.

    Lets see I am on the NO CALL list. I guess they gave themselves a pass on that law.

    I don't think the no call list covers political calls, or companies or charities you have previously dealt with.

    I get them from democrat candidates and I'm a registered republican.
    I email the offending phone sexers by going to their websites.

    Email I save on my hard drive.

    Crazy is going into a bank and yelling I have a gun just for kicks.

    Crazy is parking as close to the front door of Walmart as you can if you value your car.

    Crazy is my 1 hour commute each way to work on the busiest highway in the state.

    Crazy is sitting in a duck blind in 16 degree weather while its sleeting.

    Crazy is the lock on treestand I used to hunt out of that was 60 feet off the ground.

    Crazy is defying a category 3 hurricane coming right down the pipe by staying in your mobile home.

    INSANITY IS VOTING FOR A DEMOCRAT AT ANY LEVEL AT THE PRESENT TIME!

    most of the ads on tv are slam ads and dont talk about much else. what are these people's view points? are they for or against my topics of interest? heck if I know. are they prochoice? are they anti gunners? are they for the enviroment? are they going to help the helpless? heck if I know. all they wanna talk about is the war or about each other. but nothing important. (now before you scream that war is/isnt important, heres my 2 cents. Its war people die on all 3 sides(us, them & the non combatants). tv just draws out the negatives cause they nothing else to talk about. Do they ever show us helping to rebuild anything? News doesnt report good things people do. that stuff doesnt get ratings. I'd be over there now if I was young enough to enlist. you cant draw a deadline for the new government cause its still evolving and unpredictable. we set a deadline, they wait, build strength and then go all out when we pull out, knowing we most likely that we couldnt redeploy because of politics. ect....It'll be over when its over.) and like tonights episode of south park states your always either voting for a deutsch or a turd sandwich anyway.

    You can cure that problem by listing your phone in the National Do Not Call Registry.

    Mine is listed but I got a call from a satellite company. I reported their name and number and later got a letter from Arkansas Attorney General asking if I could appear in court... I sent it back saying I sure would. Guess it was settle out of court but no more calls.
