Subject: Progressive Auto Insurance

I have often thought, while watching one of their "cutesy"
commercials, that their company name was unfortunate in this political
climate.  Little did I know how well it fits!!


       This is a heads up regarding Progressive Auto Insurance.  
You know who they are.  They're the ones with the clever television ads
featuring the perky brunette actress all dressed in white.  What you might
not know is that the chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the
largest funders of the left in America .  He's your typical rich spoiled kid
who took over the company from his father and apparently feels "guilty" for
his success and now dedicates himself to making it impossible for anyone
else to become wealthy.
       
       Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled $15 million to the ACLU, the
group most responsible for destroying what's left of America 's
Judeo-Christian heritage.  Indeed, Lewis is himself an ACLU member.  One of
the ACLU projects he earmarked his funds for was an effort to sue school
districts who have drug testing policies.  In other words, this idiot wants
teachers to be able to use drugs without fear of exposure.  I wonder what he
would think if all his own employees came to work drugged out every day.  
       
       Lewis also gave $12.5 million to MoveOn.org and American Coming
Together, two key components of the socialist left.  The former group is
perhaps the main group used by the Obama forces to organize their activists;
the latter group is a 527 political action group that essentially served as
a front for the SEIU union thugs who ran ACORN.  His funding for these
groups was conditional on matching contributions from George Soros, the
international socialist who finances much of the Obama political network.
       
       It's disturbing that Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism
but now finances a progressive movement that threatens to destroy the free
enterprise system.  He reminds me somewhat of Armand Hammer, the former head
of Occidental Petroleum who did business with Joseph Stalin and became his
good friend, around the same time Stalin was executing businessmen all over
the USSR .
       
       What angers me further is the way this company is targeting
television shows watched by conservatives such as Fox News.  Peter Lewis is
making a fortune off of conservative Americans so that he can destroy our
country.  He's banking on no one finding out who he is.  I think it's time
we expose this clown.

       If you can or want to you may want to switch from Progressive
Insurance!

I have heard this a few times. There are others too. GEICO, State Farm, All State. I will likely end up switching to Farmers Group soon enough. I haven't heard anything negative about them, yet. It strikes me as odd that so many of the larger companies out there these days have such negative ties. It beckons the question, Whom can we trust anymore?

I trust myself, my wife and my family.....oh and the people on OT! Big Grin Other than that, it's pretty bleak this day in age. We're seeing the transformation into a true socialist nation, against the wills of the majority.

Insurance, is by its very nature, a gamble.  You are gambling on a negative outcome, the insurance company is gambling on a positive.  Positives far outweigh the negatives... which is why insurance companies have some of the highest profit margins in the world.  Just take life insurance... every day, you are betting "I'm going to die today" and the insurance company is betting "based upon average life expectancy and the fact that we have excluded suicide for coverage and limited death due to the most common accidents, you are going to live to a ripe old age... enough to more than pay for what we might have to pay out in coverage".  See, they are taking the money you pay in and INVESTING it in high yield investments which are compounded by the large number of PAYEES (you).  They can't lose, you generally do...
Looking through history, any insurance company that went broke was simply because the "directors" took the money and ran...
