Why Spam Calls Are At An All-Time High

Robocalls are at an all-time high. On average, Americans received more than 2,000 robocalls every second in October, up 25% from the previous month. With 49 billion robocalls so far this year, all four major U.S. phone carriers now offer some form of blocking or screening service, such as T-Mobile’s well known “Scam Likely” label. Congress and state officials passed new robocall regulations in recent months and have seen an uptick in successful cases against the scammers. Meanwhile, hundreds of tech start-ups are developing new ways to tackle the problem.

One thing that you should know about congress passing new regulations against robocalls is that they will exempt political parties and organizations from following the new regulations.  The Democratic Party is always the worst offender.

My name is Chris Blackwood, and I'm coming to you live from the deep freeze up in northern Minnesota. These are the sporadic musings, ramblings, and rants of a middle aged man who isn't exactly thrilled with the direction America is taking today. I'm extremely opinionated where news and politics are concerned. I call it like I see it and I don't mince any words.

Life is too short to stay quiet.
