I received a call from this number and suffered through the entire automated poll. It is clearly a extreme conservative hate-speech campaign. There were numerous dilatory and misleading remarks about the health care bill and highly inflammatory antisemitic comparisons of the Jewish holocaust to Malaria in Africa. Without a doubt, the most disgusting political rhetoric I have ever been subjected to. The people responsible for this evil should be prosecuted. I am pissed to no end. I will be calling the Family Research Council to complain. It's the least we can do: Family Research Council, Washington D.C.: Tel: 202/393-2100 And one wonders why I am "Pro-Choice"... I want to be able to choose who calls me!!!
I get calls from these numbers all the time (and several others), but the joke is on them. They can call me all they want. I will never answer because the line is connected to a fax machine only! And I get charged a monthly rate not a per call one. I hope they enjoy the screeching in their ears!!!
I wasn't here to pick up on the call but it looks like another survey. Wonder if our alleged representatives in Washington would ever have guts enough to add surveyors, non profits, and political calls to the DNC. Guess I answered my own question.
This call was received on my cell phone. It was a poll asking if I were to vote today, would I vote for President Obama. Since I let it roll to voice-mail, I did not get to answer the question. The message stated that they might call back. From the tone of the question, I suppose they don't want to hear "oh, HELL no!!" My wife got a similar call within a minute of mine, and someone I was with later that same day, got one while I was with them. After checking, other members of my family got the same call on the same day as well. All of these were also calls to cell phones.
You can't help but be impressed by the complete vacuum of ethics that it takes to harass someone and make them actually pay for it. I mean, think of the incentive that gives to those companies that charge their cell phone customers per call. Now, your very own cell phone service supplier will be going out of its way to fuck you right in the ass by selling robo call services to these sleazy junk callers. At least in the movie, The Matrix, they gave people warm comfy little pods to live in while they slowly sucked the life out of them.

All cell phone numbers have been released,so you will be gettine more unwanted calls. Call the Do Not Call site with your cell phone and put your number on the list. I have set my cell's firewall to only to accept calls from numbers in my phone book, otherwise all other numbers are blocked.
I received a call from 202-870-5868 with the caller ID showing 20 CAMPRSCH 09. The recorded questions were obviously slanted toward a particular perspective and did not use a true "research questionaire" format or appropriate wording. I ignored the obvious leading and answered truthfully just tp see where the survey would go. The questions became more and more offensive as they went. I thought they were funny, but I still think that this is dirty politics, especially considering that people that are on the do-not-call list are still getting these calls. I would love to speak to the caller personally. The debate would be interesting.

I have received a few of these calls and don't answer them because all that shows on my called ID is District of Columbia and I don't think I know anybody there other than politicians. lol. After reading here what the call pertains to, if I knew that it would be a real person calling I would answer because I am 100% pro-choice and I could have a ton of fun with a real person. I like when a real person calls for polls and I can get them all flustered.
Stop calling my cell phone. These irritating calls are bad enough at home. How do I get off of the list! Can't these telemarters catch on that we do NOT WANT TO HEAR FROM THEM E V E R.
Here's an update on the calls. TPM reports:
I thought these assholes weren't supposed to call cell phones. I get charged for every incoming call. And then, to add insult to injury, they left a voice message which, of course, costs me more money when I call to retrieve it. It's bad enough having to be harassed by these politically-protected low-life sleazy scum, but actually having to pay for it shows just how corrupt government and business has become. I wouldn't be surprised if these asswipes got my number from the do-not-call list.

Typical swiftboters with the Dems. lsft wing lies to try to convince the Americans how wonderful they are. They started manufacturing lies when Clinton was in office are still doing it now that we have this crazy in office with all of his political cronies.
BTW, the part about malaria in Africa was clearly pushing for removing the ban on DDT. I had no idea the Family Research Council was now a shill for the pesticide industry. Oh well, I guess they need to make their money somehow.
Got the call last night, a quote ABBC survey paid for by the Family Research Council. The outright lies and fabrications were astonishing. I almost hung up twice but stayed till the end to find out who was behind such rubbish. There you have it, Family Research Council. I only wish they would call again so I could record the "survey". If anyone gets the call again, please answer and record the push poll and report here. Thanks.
I did a general search of this number and it showed Westchester DC. I did not take the call but did try to call them back and nobody answered.
Caller hung up when our answering machine started. Reading the msgs below I get the idea it was some political crap. Oh, and Pam...please don't yell at us with ALL CAPS & perhaps you might look into a remedial English class for help with spelling & basic grammar issues. Just sayin'...
Who is behind this organization? The questions were misleading and supporting "facts" were rubbish.
Left a message saying it was a survy & would probably call back. If so, I won't answer as I have caller ID.

another political poll/survey. Just curious - is anyone registered on the donotcall.gov list? Seems since I registered last time, someones got my number now and all I get is political ads or polls or questionaires.. getting tired of it. Just wondered if anyone else noticed or has same problem
BTW...Eff off! I was eating dinner!
Really...Who has to resort to an automated machine to get an opinion? I would rather hear my Hindi IT ask questions, at least they make sense!
MY CALL WANTED TO NO IF I WOULD VOTE RELECT PRESIDENT OBAMA I WOULD NOT AND I YOUR CALL CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD. I SAID DEF, NOT ....I HOPE YOU GOT THAT.
When they called part of the message was about supporting abortion, they must also be demorats
They called said it was a survey. I am not some far out liberal or conservative. It started with questions on health care that were slightly offensive and I hung up when they were asking questions about favors on Jewish versus Black causes. I found this all very disturbing, and not even a normal political pole. I wonder how they can do this? It was upsetting enough to try and find out who these people are and why would they call me like this.
Push Poll agianst Heatlh Care Since Demorcrats were demonized must have been from Republican Right Wing Nuts
I didn't answer and they left a message "This was a public survey call, we may call again later."
I answered this call. The questioner on the phone said the company was Campaign Research from Princeton NJ. Asked two questions. Was I registered to vote in NJ and if I believe marriage should only be defined as a union between one man and one woman. I answered yes to the first, no to the second at which time I was thanked for my response and the call was abruptly ended. I don't know if there would have been further questioning if I answered differently or not, but I did get the impression --- just an impression --- that the caller was not pleased with my response.
This call was Republican propaganda on taxes to put the scare into the American people. After 8 years of Bush they should know better than to call people and try this. I say its time to get rid of all of them and start over.
20 camprsch 09 has called 2 times so far today.....I refuse to answer.
20 camprsch 09 2009-12-09
Called today. I figured sales call of some sort & didn't bother to answer.
Some recorded political opinion poll. It sounded like it was slanted to be Republican propaganda on taxes, though I didn't stay on the line long enough to make sure of that. There seems to be a lot more of this kind of thing lately than there was in the past
