    I know of no other country that worries about offending people like we do. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM HERE???? Let those faux "offended" people get a life.

    To those offended by the American flag, you are welcome to get your worthless butt out and do let the door hit you on the way out

    I'm no lover of banks but it sounds like an IDIOT employee not the bank itself.
    As the "dumbing down" of the U.S.A. has progressed, more of this has happened and will happen.

    Sounds like some total B.O.A. moron just whoopsed!

    If not...then let's all call them up and tell them that we're offended by their bank name because it has the word "AMERICA" in it.

    Let's insist that they change the name to just "Bank Of"

    Or how about BANK OF....WHATEVER


    Bank of America released a statement apologizing for the incident and called it a misunderstanding.

    “We want to ensure the community knows how deeply proud we are of the men and women who have sacrificed so much in service to our country,” the statement said. “The bank does fly the American Flag at our locations throughout the country and flags were displayed in front of our banking center in Gaffney the evening prior to our dedicated Marine returning home.”

    Also ArmyCop...Didja hear that some left wing group is fighting to have school students read a Miranda type statement - reaffirming their "Right To Remain Silent" before the daily Pledge Of Allegiance is recited in the classroom?

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Sounds like the Branch manager is a real piece of work there.

    This is the but one thing that BofA does that isn't ethical.

    Mrs. UnklFungus, (would that be AuntFungus?) worked, for a short time, for a company called Teletech & they field phone calls for BofA. BofA does some jacked up things when it comes to your money. Things like debit card authorizations going against the balance of your account, but not showing up online, until approx three days later. Not crediting deposits before deducting withdrawals, not automatically crediting back bounced check fees unless you ask, and preventing the people on the phone from mentioning anything about that to the customer, etc.

    True all of this could be avoided, if you are spot on with your checking/debit registers, but I'll have to see if I can get her to state some of the facts of what they do.
    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
