11/05/14  I’m going to miss those impassioned personal calls from Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and the various supporters of the right to life and the importance to bear arms ranging from unregistered handguns to bazookas.

I feel so special every year when I get these robocalls, sometimes early in the morning, at night after I’m asleep, and always during important baseball or football games. I hear “Hello, this is _____________,” and feel assured that someone must have thought about me when they were recorded; my needs, my fears, and my aspirations.

But come January every year after they take office, they seem to have forgotten about everything except those fears they will manipulate until the next election, when the calls start again. You might be interested in my article on how we are manipulated through fear.
