My daughter got a call on her cell phone the other day. We are very cautious about answering calls because we get so many telemarketers and wrong numbers. If she does not recognize the number she does not answer the call. Usually, the callers have phone numbers like 769-0 (a true telemarketer number). The number is displayed on her cell phone screen. This time, the number was “WITHHELD.”
The caller left a voicemail, so she played it and we listened. True irony, my friends. This was the message:
Hi this is senator —- calling with an important message. I have always felt that it is important to be accessible to communicate with my constituents throughout my district….
OK, in the senator’s defense, he did eventually leave an address and phone number at the end of the voicemail. But we got tickly ribs when we saw the number was “withheld” and the first thing the message talked about was accessibility!
Irony, Take Two
Just watch the first 45 seconds of this video. It’s just TOO funny!!!
Well, funny for a second. After that, I got pretty mad. :rollpin:
Can you believe that the media will actually list poll results for Number 1, Number 3 and Number 4 and TOTALLY disregard Number 2 because the media disagrees with the candidate?! How can they get away with this?!
Have any of you heard of Ron Paul??? I think it’s a very scathing, dangerous thing for the media to censor stuff like that. They are all doing it, too. You practically need prescription glasses to read the tiny mouse print in the newspapers where they may mention this unknown guy named Ron Paul. But in most cases, there’s a media blackout about him. It’s nothing short of an encroachment on our right to know. SHAME ON THE MEDIA!
