Damn I thought this was a skit where the squirrel in a suit that used to be funny would not be the puppet that bagged on one of or the best Presidents Of The USA. Not so lucky i find out. Just 100% puppet of the monopoly owned MSM to take down the Constitutional Republic USA ! Sad and pathetic ! Makes me want to hunt squirrels and send them to him. I need to find out when squirrels are in season and hope I get some that carry bubonic plague I heard and read about. After I find out how to not get it collecting and mailing them in case one has it. What's worse that robocalls ? The Squirrel puppet skid mark in Americas shorts and the like. PS Those that agree with be refrain from contact or being to close to him in case I get one with that infection I do not know how to verify so ???

... People actually answer their phones when it's not from a number they know? The only time I even pick up is from numbers I know, and that's because I know if they are calling me it's important otherwise they would text. If a company needs to contact me they can email or send me a letter and I'll call them back when I have time.

I don't care who you are or why you're calling, if you use a robot to call me it had better be R2-D2 or I am hanging up.

I'm amazed that "T2T" isn't more popular. I've been using "Text 2 Talk" as a basis for establishing legitimacy since 2008.. I find it to be the laziest if not the most effective of countermeasures.

I love messing with scam callers. Let me rephrase that: I love saying things like "I hope your children die of cholera in your arms, which considering that you live in India is a legitimate threat, and the last thing they say before they float off into the eather are 'daddy, I don't love you.'" Or, "mommy, I don't love you," I don't want to sound sexist. I have a few others in my arsenal that are so Hiroshima-level devastating I can't say them here. I love making scammers cry. So far, I'm up to four people crying. What can I say, I enjoy messing with scammers because my life is pathetic and making some poor sap on the other side of the world who lives in abject poverty cry gets me sexually aroused. Also, fuck Ashit Pie.

The thing to do with robo calls is to waste their time. Try to get a person on the line then start to waste time. I did this multiple times with the people from Mumbai, India who for some reason wanted to clean my ducks in Brampton Canada. Like I do have pigs and cows so why only y ducks? It's confusing. But if you waste their time, when it costs them money,, like when you actually get a human on line then they will stop calling you and at the same time you get to punish them.

I hate the one with Chinese robocall. I don’t even understand Chinese but they left voice mail. So I asked my Chinese friend what they are saying. They said “your visa is expired I will help process the paper work. Pay me money” and the other one is “wells fargo trying to help you pay bills and debt.” I don’t have debt or Wells Fargo account. So I kept ignoring but damn they kept calling me. Chinese robocall is the most annoying one because they call from either (800) or outside of the US!

The one thing that would eliminate robocalls would be to somehow make it a "hate crime" to have a robot make a robocall. Then the lberals would find some way to stop them in about 5 minutes. Hell, if we could get about a dozen folks from the minority communities to say "racism" about robocalls, the calls would be gone the same day.

I just don’t get the profit model with these calls, especially the pre recorded ones, I’ve waited and tried to get a real person so I can talk outrageous shit to them, and usually it’s just a recorded message, then hangs up, if you call the number back it’s not available, so they are randomly generating numbers that show up on the caller ID, so am I missing where the person who called is making money off this? Or do they just like to bother people?

Hi John, I've been watching and enjoying your shows for a very long time now. I suppose my message will be lost among other comments, but...if i might get lucky, and someone will read...I wanted to ask you something: I am doing a recap of your shows on HBO and i got to sez 3 ep 2-abortions- and there were some discussed law inforcements regarding this topic in several states. My question is...What happened? Did they pass? And adiacent did they impact the population? Did you notice a significant change? What i wanted to it possible to have, from time to time, a recap and current status on some of the topics you have discussed?for example, Brazil elections? And soo many other topics that were very interesting and funny(of course) debated in your show. You already coverred in full Brexit and that is one topic that remains to be discussed. But , in my country stupid , shitty things happen and we don t have a John Oliver:( to ,at least TRY to point us on the absurdity of some questionable passing laws and analfabetical "guvernours" that we have. I wanted to ask you for this "update" , hopping , praying , that if America can surpass its nonsense, maybe some of us-the little people- still have a hope. Or i will just lay here and watch everything burn:)))

This is why no one answers their phone, checks voice mails 25% of the time, and only text. Texting is the way to get the best results in my line of work when calling doesn't work. Even when they are the one with the problem and I am trying to help them. lol

Meanwhile, in Germany, we had a different approach to that problem: - Step 1 : Making that Robocall bullshit illegal in the first place - Step 2 : Not thinking about it anymore

+mjmoughtin They don't make it illegal because due to the frequency of the crime 90% of the police force would have to be investigating robo calls at all times and then they wouldn't have any authority to stop them anyways because they all come from india.

mjmoughtin politicians have as much political will as their constituents demand, if people make their voice heard action will be taken or a politician will find themselves out of a job And the idea that some laws won’t work here is less based on how physically large the country is and more based in how fragmented the government is Our constitution was designed to limit the federal governments authority, crimes are more likely to be tried in a state court than a federal court here Honestly, you seem likely a reasonable person and I’m sorry if I come across as rude, I’m just sick of always seeing comments on various forums(i.e reddit, HRvid, etc) that imply that America (and Americans) is/are somehow incompetent (some are of course) and I blame ignorance, ignorance of how our country truly works and a distinct lack in desire to learn Having said that, I wish more of my own countrymen would not only learn how their government functions but also how major governments in the world function, such as the EU and the UN

Kathrin Fuchs I pointed out the robocalls that I most often received, I very rarely receive spam calls, I maybe receive a singular spam call once every few months-I would suspect most of those complaints at the FTC are more in the vein of that unfortunate soul who received 20 calls in a day from a legit company As to your second point-automation is a thing and has been for pretty much forever, jobs will be lost as sectors die out-that’s just how the free market works-as jobs die out in one sector, growth is inevitably expected in another sector as innovation creates new sectors
