Note: you may have to embiggen the text to read the tiny print. Apologies, butt then again, itâs not supposed to be easy to read the fine print.
Poor old over-the-Hilz, not only did she get schlonged again by Bernie last night, butt she continues to bleed millennial voters:
According to entrance polls, Sanders received 84 percent of the vote from those 17 to 29 years old, as against 14 percent for Clinton. â New Republic
Itâs easy to see why Hillary â old, white, shrill harpy â is not attractive to Millennials. The more interesting question is why Bernie is so attractive to this demographic. I think it can be simply explained by reviewing the series of Liberty Mutual commercials aimed at the same demographic. Iâve attempted to summarize the message LM is attempting to convey beneath each video.
New Car Replacement: Donât they know youâre already shaken up?
There I was just texting my mom when out of nowhere this other car jumps in front of me, ruining my whole day. Then I find out my cheap basic insurance doesnât cover complete replacement value? That is so NOT FAIR either!! If you just pay LM a higher âNew Car Replacement premiumâ weâll be happy to replace the car you totaled. (NOTE TO MILLENNIALS: in most applications âplus depreciationâ will be a negative number.)
Better Car Replacement: Money can buy you love.
LM understands how attached you get to inanimate objects and how upset youâll be when they no longer work. So if you just pay them a higher âBetter Replacementâ premium, theyâll replace your old stuff with something even better when it breaks. And you wonât even have to go through the trouble of putting the money in the bank yourself! How fair is that!!?
Accident forgiveness: Your insurance company raises your rates after you caused an accident? Who does that?
You spend a lot of time doing internet research before you buy a car so you deserve a gold star, right? Then you find out there are still consequences in the form of a higher premium when you run into a tree while texting mom; that is so unfair!! Just pay LM a higher âAccident Forgivenessâ premium and they wonât raise your rates - thatâs fair, right?
Deductible Fund? âDeductibleâ â whats that?
I paid my insurance premiums on time and therefore deserve a gold star. Instead, I run off the road while texting Brad and wreck my car and you expect ME to pay a deductible!? Thatâs so UNFAIR!!! If you pay LM a higher âDeductible Fundâ premium, they will just-a-waive your deductible â and again, you donât even have to go to the trouble of putting it in your own bank account. How fair is that!!?
So you see, Bernie appeals to Millennials exactly the same way the Liberty Mutual ads do. He promises you a lot of free stuff butt doesnât even do as good of a job explaining that you are actually going to be charged for the âfreebies.â Maybe the FTC should impose a Truth In Advertising law on politicians as well as commercials. In the mean time you would be well advised to read the small print.

Ahh the “millennials” the only generation that never ages
18-29 has been the age range of the “millennials” for the past 7 years now.... They never get old
Mark Steyn make the brilliant observation in “America Alone” that Socialism appeals to voters by promising them an extended Adolescence. Socialism promises people that they can avoid taking responsibility for themselves by simply turning all decision making over to the Government.
I hate those commercials. Especially the woman that misses her car “Brad” because he went through two jobs and three boyfriends with her.
Can’t mute the TV fast enough when the adds come on these days.
I see the fine print on every one of those disgusting, deceptive commercials. Even with my 60+ year old eyes.
What I despise the most about advertising is how they always seem to assume an IQ similar to room temperature.
I guess politicians are like that too.
I don't care so much about the "Brad" commercial. The one that bugs me is the "Research" commercial. Torque ratios? There's an ad exec who doesn't know s*** about cars. Torque to weight ratio, yeah, maybe. Torque to horsepower, sure. Torque ratios? Okay... Find me a company that gives "Torque ratios" in any of their specs.
Government has replaced God in that way.
Well since I don’t know anything about torque ratios I’ll take your word for it. The ads are all dumb,as are most ads. I rarely see an ad I like.
Wow, I thought I was the only one who choked on that torque ratios crap. And a female wanting to know that spec to boot.
(I totally like that female however. She’s got some decidedly feminine heft going for her).
I fell for the cute E-Trade baby ads!
do they even know how to read? ?
My new bumper sticker-
VOTE SOCIALISM, NOW GET IN LINE
FOR TOILET PAPER A$$HOLES!
I absolutely DETEST those Liberty Mutual commercials.
I change channels on my TV when they come on. Not kidding.
If people in this country are so dumb (they are) that these are the commercials we have now, no wonder the country is in such bad shape.
Yea those were cute and the ones for an investment company with the cute little dog worrying about where to put his bone.
In physics, "torque ratio" is equal to "gear ratio." So, if you have a transmission with 100 lbs of torque on the input shaft, and the output shaft is 2.5 times the size of the input shaft, you have 2.5 x 100 or 250 pounds of torque on the output shaft. However, no one uses the term "torque ratio" in automotive circles. They use the terms "torque" and "gear ratio", but no one uses "torque ratio." Sometimes they'll measure torque to horsepower, or cubic inches, or even weight of the vehicle.
I’m disgusted with my relatives who will vote for Bernie, solely because they want their college loans erased! Why don’t we pay off those loans with retired professors pensions?! And current college teachers get paid minimum wage from now on? They make college expensive! And Bernie can donate his Personal fortune to the students!
Thanks for the info.
