They didn't name their company “”progressive” because is sounded pretty.

Let's pull a reverse Chick-fil-a on ‘em.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were enough backlash, through account cancellation, to at least get that woman off TV for a while because they have to cut back on advertising?

Behind that painted on smile Flo is just another crazy eyed tightwad b***h. Always beware of women with the crazy eyes! They're the kind that put Visine in your raspberry tea.

In the current Progressive commercial, the Flobot is getting the attention and taking customers from Flo. Flo sidles over the Flobot and pats it on the back. The back pat is actually the extraction of a circuit board that disables the Flobot.

This is the typical union mentality to sabotage that which threatens. To sabotage and destroy company property is ok...... that is the message of the ad and the union mantra.

Progressive Insurance should be run off to France where they appreciate such behavior.

Meanwhile, GEICO is poking fun at wacko lefties. A man with a sweater tied around his shoulders is at a farmers market. He asks the farmer “what is the carbon foot print of the cauliflower?” Before the answer, Gallagher comes running up with a Nancy Pelosi sized gavel and beats up on watermelons. The melons fly all over and are revealed to be green on the outside and red on the inside.

Bert,

Keep in mind that GEICO is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.

I would suggest Amica or Maine Mutual or USAA if your or your parents were in the military.

Amica and Liberty Mutual are both fine companies.

I saw a report evaluating insurance companies customer satisfaction and USAA was number one in all categories it has offerings in (no life insurance).

I saved a bunch when I made the switch from All State several years ago.

Plus Amica sponsers the Red Sox: Amica pitch zone.

I hope the Rangers or Nationals beat the Yankees this year.

Anybody but the Yankess.

Veterans, regardless of rank, can join USAA. It’s no longer an officer only association, like it used to be.

As an enlisted guy, I didn’t hold it against them when I joined, their service and products are just too damned good to ignore.

Check with them and discuss your dad’s and yours status. I’d think it’s worth the free call to find out.

Also, check the “A legacy to pass down” tab at the link I posted, it gives some info on who can join.

USAA member since 1991(Retired Army CW5). All my stuff is with USAA. GREAT OUTFIT! Bank accounts, home, auto, investments, everything. Until yesterday. USAA insures boats through Progressive. Cancelled my boat insurance yesterday. Awaiting callback from USAA concerning my rant to them about doing biz with Progressive.

The contributions of Progressive's CEO (son of the company's founder) are worthy of note:

* America Coming Together and MoveOn.org (with George Soros matching his $10 and $2.5 million, respectively)

* American Civil Liberties Union $15m

* The Democratic Party (amount not disclosed)

Any conservative that buys insurance from this outfit is an idiot!
