Laughing All the Way to the Phone

It is perhaps one of the better jokes to be inflicted upon the fine people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  I refer to the "Do Not Call" list.

It.  Doesn't.  Work!

Yes, some businesses have been whacked for violations, but they are few and far between.  Admittedly, it's tough for the state to crack down on fly by night entities in different states, and many in foreign countries.

If that wasn't enough, politicians exempted themselves from the law.  People running for office, and their surrogates are the biggest violators of the peace.

You might say, just shut your phones off.  Well, I can't.  When you work in a 24/7 business and you have elderly relatives, that is not an option.  Multiply it by three.  I have a personal cell phone, a work cell phone and a land line.  I have three ways to be bothered.

It's time for the legislature to get tough and make this law work.
