    If you still get robocalled, you're doing something wrong. The actual issue isn't that big of an issue if you've been alive less than 300 years. As Oliver just showed, you can actually have a lot of fun with telephone scammers. For instance: Call-forwarding. I'm not suggesting anyone actually do this...
    However, you could set up a voip number. Spam every phone list that's likely to get you robocalled. When the calls start coming in, automate your call forwarding to redirect the calls to Ajit Pai and your local representatives. We can think bigger than one call every ninety minutes.

    This is journalism. Fox, CNN, everyone - this is what journalism should look like. You identify an issue. You investigate that issue. You report on that issue in great detail. Obviously they're doing this with humor here but at the center of it is actually really good journalism.

    Here is a quote from John Oliver calling for the harassment of another talk show host. MSNBC article dated today.
    "I would argue that Tucker is actually a good example of an internet pile-on being merited," Oliver said.

    It is really quite shameful how little our government is doing to protect us from scammers, identity thieves, and people who want to track our every move... our government has become pretty much AWOL in actually doing things to make people's lives better and more secure. They've completely sold out to corporate interests...

    His Alter is never named, but he has the power to manipulate watermelons and use them as bombs, protective barriers, platforms and teleportation devices(By stepping inside a giant watermelon, having it shrink to nothing, then having it grow anew in a different location, with him still inside it.). He can make them grow huge until they crush an opponent, turn an entire building into a watermelon for a second (thus destroying it when it turns back, somehow).

    Since I don't have a landline and all calls go through my cell, If there's no name attached to the number calling I just don't answer. If it's important they can leave a message, which they never do. That's how I deal with robo calls. I can positively say I can't remember the last time I picked up for a number I didn't recognize, but if I did and heard the robot on the other end, I would just hang up. It's interesting to look up the numbers and find out, although they might have your area code ,they are 300 miles away or in another state.

    The one I get the most keeps telling me that its the FINAL courtesy call about the warranty of my car expiring.
    Despite being the final call, i've had about 200 of them. And the warranty on my car expired more than a decade ago.
    I am so damn sick of the USA being the bitch of corporations. They can't get any laws passed to curb ANY shit eating behavior because those lobbyists keep buying elected officials.
    Lobbyists should be rounded up and fucking executed. They are the reason nothing useful ever gets done. For instance, when the US realized its kids were turning into fatasses, it started requiring school lunches to serve vegetables. Well lobbyists stepped in and made the folks declare that FRENCH FRIES count as vegetables. So it defeats the entire purpose of the requirement and kids keep getting fatter just so motherfuckers can sell more french fries. Our entire system is fucked by this shit.
