    • On October 02, 2011, by LupronVictim - Robot calls are harassment and nuisance. Many robot calls are scam, fraud. Again, a Republican threatens to make our lives more miserable. $$$$$$$$$ is never enough for this greedy sytem. Many people are sooooo pissed off by all these bad news and lobbying. Greed of the corporations (minority) create unnecessary suffering for our people (majority). People already struggle, then companies decided to devote their "careers" to make our lives more miserable. We don't have billions of dollars to influence Congress with "donations". We only have the truth, justice, common sense and our people on our side.
