    If banks can't handle the criticism that people give them they shouldn't be so willing to take bailout money from the government (which they really shouldn't have gotten in the first place) and throw it around like confetti. I personally think it's hilarious that some of these banks don't seem to know how to manage money properly. It's a bank! I think it's obvious that some of these banks don't know how to survive in a world of economic crisis so I think we should let them fall by the wayside.

    I've got no problem with it at all. Like I said, it's standard stuff.

    And I know Bank of America. I know how high its business standards are, because I was an officer for years. I know Ken Lewis. This wasn't some party on the public's dime. This was marketing.

    but I do not believe in coporate welfare either.
    Would you either require the company to...
    1. Not spend the federal loaned money on marketing initiatives to increase their customer base
    2. Require those marketing initiatives to get public approval before they are launched.

    No...I know what he means...I'm just trying to figure out how we're supposed to measure the return on investment for something like this. If the Bank of America succeeds and gets back on it's feet, will it be solely because of this or what? What kind of standard is he setting for what is a 'return'? The return as I see it is thousands of new potential customers.
