^ when one out of four people in this country are doing business with BoA in some fashion or another, it's doubtful any decision they might make on this issue would have any significant effect on their bottom line.

as to the "$5.00 a gallon gas vs. drill baby drill" part, you are correct: it is not a binary choice.

Agree with you Ski. But we are the oil company. And the bank. They exist because we buy their gas and borrow their money*. We need them and we created them. In part, maybe, to insulate and absolve us from the true cost of our needs and desires. A famous guy once shouted out 'Who killed the Kennedys!'

The next line in that song being "Well after all it was you and me."

But neither you or I are on the board of directors of either BoA or any of the big oil companies, and I'm certainly not a stockholder, nor did I contribute in any way to their creation, any more than I had a part in killing off the buffalo on the Great Plains.

All that aside, I just don't see how it would really impact BoA's bottom line either way, and there are simply too many people who owe them money for those who don't to make any difference.

Perhaps it's just the jaded prism through which I view the world, but I see it strictly as a PR move by their marketing department.
