This fucks ass. This shit had better be overturned. Thanks, Oklahoma.

You've gotta be fucking kidding me. Those asshole fucks in Congress for once in their fucking lifetime do something useful for the people they supposedly represent by ordering the FTC to do this, and it manages to get fucked up. Yeah, maybe congress should have been more clear. Apparently, though, the FTC appropriately interpreted Congress' wishes, as evidenced by the fact that Congress isn't up in arms over the FTC's actions.

It's total bullshit if the First Amendment was actually used to justify this ruling. The First Amendment doesn't give people the right to harass other people, does it? I don't know that telemarketing presents any sort of "clear and present danger," but it's clearly unwanted and considered harassment to the people who signed up for the do-not-call list.

In the end, you know who should be shot? The assholes who actually buy products and services from telemarketers. Think about it: companies wouldn't invest money in telemarketing if it wasn't profitable. If people quit buying crap from telemarketers, the profts would dry up, and the shit would stop. The same goes for spam, by the way. Of course, people are morons, and they'll buy anything. But here's a tip: if someone calls you trying to sell you a "three underwear poop tube system," just hang up. You don't need it.
