Copeland: Enough of these unsolicited political phone calls

Posted

I wonder if anyone else besides me is fed up with getting political calls on their telephone?

In the early days, when these first started as “town halls,” where you could ask questions of the candidates, I connected with one of the town halls, but never got to ask a question. After a long wait, I decided to just hang up. What a surprise when I couldn’t get disconnected.

Now, when I get a political call on my telephone, I answer it and immediately hang up. Do you think the politicians will get the message to take me off their “call list?”
