Note from Dan: I’ve been cracking hard on robocalls this election season because of their annoyance factor. I’m not the only one, and they can be far more an a mere annoyance. Here, we have a rant from MAD in Colorado who notes that incessant robocalls from the Republican National Committee are actually dangerous to an elderly mother who’s unsteady on her feet. MAD, you may want to buy your mom a cordless phone, and quick. I hope she doesn’t break a hip.
“My Mother is 92yrs old and falls a lot. She tries to get to her phone to answer these incessant calls. She WILL fall one of these times. These calls are NOT A JOKE.
They represent danger to the safety of a citizen. I have tried calling Century link, their annoyance call department (worthless), the national and Colorado Do-Not-Call lines, and the Colorado Attorney General, no one will help. The number is blocked with X69 and the number these calls give is a wrong number.
The calls are from the Republican National Committee. I am furious and consulting our attorneys. I’m ready to say screw the GOP, I’ll throw away my vote rather than be part of an illegal intrusion of our privacy.
MAD as HELL in COLORADO…”
