I don't know why I'm getting all these calls from different republican front groups lately but today's call was a robo call from the NRA. No one in our household owns a gun or has over owned or shot one. We are registered Democrats. I'm still trying to figure out who sold what list that my phone number was on. On to the gist of the call below the lovely squiggle (looks rather country French or Provencal).
About noon today (EDT) I received a recorded call from the NRA with a message from the capo tutti capi, Wayne LaPierre and I hope I spelled his name correctly. Wayne was really excited and I could almost hear the spittle flying from his lips as he told of of the United Nation's plot to subvert our Constitution, change our laws and take away our guns. Well, not mine since I don't have any but other Americans who have them. The UN's plot had something to do with a peace initiative or peace plot that will somehow make an international law that will be applicable in the United States to confiscate personal firearms. Or whatever.
Then there was a survey questioned asked by another ominous voice, would I be against the UN and their sponsored action to make laws in our country and take away our firearms or not. I didn't like the wording of the question or the options so instead of pressing 1 or 2 I pressed 0.
I got an older white lady on the line and she asked me if I was having trouble with the survey. Now the fun began. I said well sort of. I didn't like the options or the way the question was worded. She tried to hang up on me but I told to her hold she called me and quite frankly if they wanted support they should not sound so irrational. I said it sounded silly and crazy that the UN would take away guns. She started to get a little angry but I was really nice and polite. I said now if you want people to support you, you have to be truthful and factual and no one is going to believe that the UN is invading our country to get our guns. People will walk away if you sound so moonbat crazy. You need to calm done and present your message in a more factual, rational, calm way. I kept her on for about 5 minutes, she had to be civil to me because I was so nice and just trying to be helpful. She said she'd give them the message. I was just trying to help, hehehe.
