People are serious about “Do Not Call”

OKLAHOMA CITY – U.S. District Judge Lee R. West’s telephone has not stopped ringing since he sided with telemarketers seeking to block a popular national do-not-call list.

Egged on by talk show hosts and angry Web sites, people have flooded West’s office and home with calls and faxes, apparently trying to show him why they wanted to ban unsolicited sales calls.

“They are just calling to tie up our lines,” said Rick Wade, operations manager at the district clerk’s office. “They just keep calling to harass us, like the telemarketers harass them, I guess.”

Think this is a small issue? Citizens feel more strongly about this and react more swiftly and vehemently than they did about the War in Iraq. Here’s a tip to all the politicians out there – people yammer about high crime, blah blah, what everyone really wants, what people will stand up for, is better qualitu of life. This here is an example.
