Well, this could have possibly gone in the political subforum, and I won't object if TPTB want to move it there, but I thought it could use a wider audience. Quick round of applause by anyone who likes robocalls... Yeah, we all hear the crickets, right? Well, businesses are lobbying congress to RELAX the rules about robocalls at a time when everyone else thinks they should be strengthened (recent news story here). This kind of thing really angers me, and it exposes one of the flaws in our system of government, that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Lobbyists go to Washington and tell them how beneficial something would be, if that's all they hear then it often gets passed, particularly if it doesn't cost "the government" anything and even moreso if a tidy little "contribution" comes with it. Thus, it's important for the little people to share our thoughts so that they at least get some more manner of a balanced picture. So if you care about this debacle, er, debate, contact your representatives. You can use the site below to enter your zip and it will show you your senators as well as the representative for your area, then you can type out your text, enter your personal information (name, address, etc) and it will let you preview and send the emails directly. http://letter2congress.rallycongress.com/ You can use this at any time to send email correspondence to your reps as well, but this seems as good a topic as any.
