Has anyone else received a robo call from API asking for support of the Keystone XL

by pressing 1 on your phone, to add your name to their letter of support to Secretary of State John Kerry to accept the pipeline from Canada to Oklahoma? The Koch brothers own the costal refinery deporting fossil energies. Less supply will make the price/cost to consumers for fuel, go up in America. (This phone line is in NE Tarrant County.)

Here are some other issues of the American Petroleum Institute-API besides the connection to Sec. John Kerry:

3. Don't you remember how much cheaper the gasoline and petrol is going to be?

And XL southern branch from Cushing Ok to Houston just went operational Jan 22 2014 and WTI jumped up $16 the same week???

4. So consumers of water, air, food and living space are going to pay the price economically and

environmentally so billionaires can sore financially and hoard their profits.

5. Got one this morning

Though once I heard "tell President Obama enough is enough", I gave them a heartfelt expletive and hung up. Frickin' called a little after 8 am.

6. Dang Robo Calls

I keep receiving calls from API even though I am on the DNC list. They have called multiple times this morning on our land line that we rarely use. The next call I receive I will file a complaint with the FCC.

7. They shouldn't be able to call more than twice each day so a complaint is in order.

I believe that they also need to provide a telephone number in order to contact them.

8. Let's compare phone numbers given by Jennifer calling for API. My recorder said:

571 480 67??. Maybe that last number was a 2 but the last two were unclear. Maybe someone else got the last two numbers. Seems like someone Up-Thread either pickup the phone or called the number back. API may be leaving different numbers with the calls. Could they be fake phone numbers? Or numbers that API is canceling everyday? Is Jennifer the same person initiating the calls to all of us? We are on the No Call List also.

10. Political calls are not subject to the No Call List.

Robocalls are made by many political parties in the United States, including but not limited to both the Republican and Democratic parties as well as unaffiliated campaigns, 527 organizations, unions, and individual citizens. Political robocalls are exempt from the United States National Do Not Call Registry. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations prohibit anyone (including charities, politicians and political parties) from making robocalls to cell phone numbers without the recipients' prior consent. The FCC permits non-commercial robocalls to most residential (non-cellular) telephone lines.

11. That's kind of amusing that the legislation

would exempt political calls ...

And really ridiculous.

12. I was wondering the same thing when

I got mail from Romney during the last election. In Texas you have to declare to caucus, so I am a registered Democrat and it is right on my voter card. So I wondered if the campaigns just had access to the DMV (driver's licenses) or something very basic like that.
