Geico have been 'my peeps' since time in memorial. Wrote off and paid up a brand new car i totalled without too many questions. Talk about painless insurance coverage.
Always loved their ads - remember the one; 'put the chalupa down featuring a loveable chihuahua. Then we had the Gecko. originally voiced by Kelsey Grammer, who used a posh, upper-class British accent.
Alas the currrent gecko, albeit gecko's voice by Jake Woods, a more working-class accent ["conservatives" ought to relate has hit the ranks of the unemployed courtesy the tea party ["conservatives"] and execs at Geico terrified to stand up for whatever values might propel them.
Look, Mr. Woods is British. NOTHING he left on the tea party voicemail warranted this. That is the Brit way of taking a person down a peg or two.
He was upset. He was classic in his delivery. All he did really, was to state the obvious; the british way of no-nonsense, slyly humorous observations.
Mr. Wood is a citizen. Whatever happened to freedom of speech. Mr. W. Buffett. You can correct this wrong. The country cannot continue to be bullied by these people. Afraid to say something in case it riles someone. Mr. Buffet, you own the bloody thing. 'Yes you can' pull the rug from under those responsible for this misrepresentation of Americans' rights.
Keeping in mind that Mr. Wood is white, upset by the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members at Congressman Barney Frank and Representative John Lewis during the Health Care Reform Weekend, Mr. Douglas left his opinion of FreedomWorks' staff and followers on their company voicemail and included his phone number.
"I called as a private citizen to make a complaint," explains Mr. Douglas. "Racism and homophobia are my Achilles heal, but unfortunately my message included inappropriate words and I am sorry for that. However, telling their members to harass my employer to get me fired is an egregiously disproportionate response to my actions." Mr. Douglas left his opinion of FreedomWorks' staff and followers on their company voicemail and included his phone number.
Slowly they shall strip us of elements such as freedom of speech under the guise of smaller government and before you know it, life imitating Animal Farm = We are all equal but republicans, tea party, 'conservatives', KKK are more equal than others. Can anyone look at Matt Kibbe and Dick Armey and not draw a conclusion suggesting racist tendencies?
