    Default With all the recent emphasis on Super Bowl commercialization...

    ...it got me to thinking about how bombarded we are with commercials on a daily basis, regardless of which TV programs we happen to enjoy. Having been in the broadcast industry for 50 years, and written beaucoups commercilas, I feel I have some education in what the advertiser is 'getting' at. While the auto spots are quite mundane, the plethora of insurance campaigns are in many cases quite entertaining. For years now, we've been pummeled with the various Geico spots, which I find very well written and produced, albeit their claim to saving "15% or more" does stretch the truth in advertising policy. Them along comes the ever condescending Flo and her cabal of clowns that campaign for the 'Progressive' insurance programs. But here's the rub. This company is designed for the 'low information' crowd if ever there was one.

    I'm not sure what the 'price' comparisons are for these various companies policies for cars, homes, cycles or whatever, but one truth has been brought out recently that has some folks questioning where best to spend their insurance money. This bit of information may help make that decision more intelligently.

    Interesting!





    r$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$..




    The "Harley Owners Group", the biggest motorcycle club in America , maybe even the world, hasn't found any members that have Progressive Insurance since the word got out about Progressives communist affiliations. Just being associated with George Soros should bring chills up your back. Oh, you don't know who George Soros is? He's finances the Obama progressive affiliations.


    Progressive Insurance....Who are they?You've seen and probably smiled at the clever Progressive Insurance TV commercials.Well, as Paul Harvey would say, "You're about to learn the rest of the story".

    PROGRESSIVE AUTO INSURANCE

    You know their TV commercials, the ones featuring the ditsy actress all dressed in white.What you might not know is that the Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the major funders of leftist causes in America .


    Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled $15 million to the ACLU, the group most responsible for destroying what's left of Americas Judeo-Christian heritage.




    Lewis also gave $12.5 million to MoveOn.org <http://moveon.org/> .org/%3e" rel=nofollow target=_blank>" href="http://moveon/<http://moveon.org/> and America Coming Together, two key propaganda arms of the socialist left.







    His funding for these groups was conditional on matching contributions from George Soros, the America-hating socialist who is the chief financier of the Obama political machine.

    Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism, but now finances a progressive movement that threatens to destroy the American free enterprise system that is targeting television shows on Fox News.Peter Lewis is making a fortune off of conservative Americans (who buy his auto insurance) that he then applies to dismantle the very system that made him wealthy. He's banking on no one finding out who he is, so STOP buying Progressive Insurance and pass this information on to all your friends.Chairman Lewis' gift helps the ACLU promote their anti-Christmas agenda such as:


    Removing nativity scenes from public property


    Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools


    Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects


    Renaming Christmas break Winter break


    Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade


    Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school


    Renaming a Christmas tree displayed on public property a Holiday treeIn addition to their war on Christmas, the ACLU uses gifts like that from Chairman Lewis to:


    Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage


    Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers


    Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders


    Help legalize child pornography


    Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon


    Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late"


    Censor student led prayer at graduation


    Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance


    Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency

    All of a sudden I don't care for their "funny commercials".

    With Harley Davidson's heavy links to the Democratic party I wonder why a buyer would buy a Communist bike and then for some moral reason decide not to get the Communist insurance.



































































    Makes you wonder.

    I hate most of the Geico commercials, but those Progressive commercials are even worse. Progressive used to be the 'trash' insurance company that you had to use if you were what they used to call assigned risk (DUI, habitual offender, etc.) in other words, no one willingly picked them as a carrier as their service is abysmal. But hmmm, run by a bunch of commies? There's probably no such thing as the assigned risk category anymore; being categorized as such a bad driver no insurance company would voluntarily insure you no doubt hurt people's feelings.

    Makes YOU wonder???? Makes me wonder where the hayell you get your info. Living in the Black Hills of SD that features one of the world's largest biker rallys, and one of HD's finest biker facilities for sales and service, I'd be willing to bet YOU there isn't enough Democrats in HD to stick in your eye and see. I've visited the BH HD shop on many occasions. You couldn't find a Democrat within shouting distance.

    So, either you are pathetically ill-informed, which I suspect, or you are just attempting to stir up a batch of Democrat bullshit you are so well accustomed to.

    I will give you credit all your posts have a certain comic value, but considering HD stood in line to receive bailouts in excess of $2 billion and 83% of their contributions go to Democratic candidates you are the one who seems to be ill in-formed.

    When did Stan's motorcycle become a Communist, ? How did Stan's bike become a Communist ? Is there a box that one would check at the DMV or does one have to take an oath when buying a Harley...if so that means we had a whole bunch of Commies coming thru town on the annual river run in April..

    Bon, it was a joke, I didn't realize McCarthyism was back in vogue until UB posted another one of his rants. Nothing wrong with buying an over priced former Japanese bike made by union workers bailed out by the American taxpayer who's PAC money goes to the Democrat party. What Stan are we talking about, not RK?
    P.S. Stan if you have a late model Road King (preferably black)and want to get rid of your Obama bike I would be interested.
