More people I am not speaking to
Something from 571-522-1332 dialed up here shortly after dinner, mumbled something about the state military (?), paused, and then rang off with "This is a public survey call. We may call back later."
Apparently it's these guys, who seem to have been doing a lot of "public survey calls" for various GOP causes and such.
Political haranguing, of course, is exempt from the Federal Do Not Call regulations.

One of these shills called on behalf of Earnest Izzaschnook tonight around 9 p.m. My wife picked it up.
Izzaschnook's voice asked her a question about the military.
"Kiss my ass," my wife said, then hung up.
Be careful. Ernie might do it.
Just for the record, "these guys" aren't my blog, but a post on my blog that's become a clearinghouse for info on these callers that are annoying people.
And we appreciate it, Mr. N. (The "these guys" link, of course, doesn't point to you.)
They were back this evening, around, well, 7:28.
I've gotten two calls from them as well. We have lots of fun explaining why they are exempt from the "Do Not Call" list. I also tire of hearing the complaints about us charging for Call Blocker as these same people feel they should be able to block calls for free.
