We’re serious, do NOT call

Filed under: — Greg @ 11:10 am

The Supreme court said smell ya later to the telemarketers’ assertion that the do-not-call list is some kind of obstruction of their free speech rights. Hooray for reason! Too bad it probably still won’t help. There are more loopholes in the do-not-call law than campaign financing.

Two comments about this. First of all, when did we start having a concept that commercial entities have the same speech rights as an individual? Or any speech rights at all?

Second, how does it limit my speech if you choose to block my phone calls? Free speech doesn’t guarantee you a captive audience. It just means that you won’t get arrested for talking.
