Some Scary, Unintentional Humor from Bank of America

Posted by libhom Tuesday, November 28, 2006

I found out about this one listening to the Sam Seder Show. This shows some kind of B of A sales meeting where they are gloating over their MBNA credit card company takeover. A couple of sales drones are singing their own version of U2's “One” with icky, funny suck up lyrics.

Note: You Tube already took down that version, so you will need to view the Quick Time version.

WFMU page with lyrics and link to audio file.

If you think it is funny, I would save the file to your hard drive. Who knows how long this will stay up.

There is a serious side to all of this. Corporate takeovers and mergers cost jobs and reduce competition. But, it still is fun to laugh at corporate arrogance, and few companies are more arrogant than B of A.

  2. Take a look at all the posts you've written. Every last one has as its focus the criticsm of the right. Do you ever profess a belief "for" somthing?

    Ahhh, yes, you are for LGBT hate crimes legislation, a diamond in the rough on this site -- of course you support this not by showing why it is right, but because the Right is against it and that Democrats should "court LGBT voters." Why, of course, we don't know.

    At best, you are jaded -- however I believe you are a rebel without a clue and one that oversimplifies debate at the expense of real progress.

  4. Anonymous' comment, summarized in five words or less:

    "Waaah! Stop picking on Republicans!"

  6. And wouldn't this post clearly be considered to be FOR legislation restricting uncontrolled corporate consolidating and monopolistic actions? I mean, logic decrees it so.

  8. Brad -- again with the oversimplification. If you want to say that making fun of some admittedly crazy people, and restricting them is being FOR something, you are simply confirming the stereotypical liberal viewpoint that government is the savior. Good for you if you believe it, you are free to do so, but you'll never convince me that this is an affirmative viewpoint.

  10. And, we already have leigislation restricting "uncontrolled corporate consolidating and monopolistic actions." So, what are you advocating exactly beyond just complaining about corporate America?

  12. I find it amazing that an anonymous poster can get so hysterical over a humor post.

    As for what should be done about these mergers, brad was right in saying that further legislation would be sensible. Of course, if the Bush regime would enforce existing anti-trust law, that would go a long way in resolving the problem of illegal merger mania.

  14. So "anonymous," being FOR legislation is actually being AGAINST it? Have you ever read Orwell? Your duplicity in this matter suggests an argument based on nothing but wishful thinking and fantasy. Like almost all Republicans.

    Please try again when you understand how to present a simple case. Or when you have one to present.

  16. Did you purposefully try to ignore the point? Of course being FOR legislation is not being AGAINST it. This is semantical nonsense and ignores the fact that the legislation itself RESTRICTS free markets. Are you that dense as to not even undestand my argument? Methinks it's just far too convenient for you to simply ignore it.

  18. And stop calling me a Republican. It just calls to my point that you are a simpleton with no concept of nuance in the political spectrum.

  20. Obviously, anything our anonymous poster is against is being "against" something, and anything the anonymous poster agrees with is being "for something." In other words, disagreeing with the anonymous one never is "affirmative."

    By the way, "free markets" is a buzzword used in this context by the extreme right to deny all democratic rights of people who don't own corporations to have any say in their lives.

  22. Wow -- very convenient way of dismissing argument -- just disqualify it through semantics, buzzords and definitional dispute -- BTW, I know what the meaning if is is
