|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:We respectfully ask that the current rules in place NOT be amended. Our daily lives are already overfilled with menial tasks that take us away from the things that really count and to interrupt us by phone and thereby distract us from these tasks, will only cause added, unnecessary stress. Our quality of life, as a growing family, is already below par with all that we have to accomplish in one day. By adding telemarketing calls, our lives become even further strained and could cause a family tsunami (!) if we reach our breaking point. We are in the 21st century, with an internet chock full of information on any company we may have interest in. If we want something, we will go seek them it out. Please, - please! - don't allow them to come seek us out unless we are given all the employee home phone numbers, at the same time, to utilize for our home-based businesses as well. As free Americans, in which we believe we have the right to choose the way we live, we should be allowed to opt-out of this scenario as well. Thank you.
