Found at Citizens Bank

Does this slogan hit anyone in the heart here?
Are we to believe that good banking is good citizenship?

Banks run this country.
Banks got bailed out first.

We, the people, who put their hard-earned cash into the banks, didn't receive as much...

So where do we stand?

Do you believe this slogan?

I, for one, don't trust banks, or the way they use our money.

The only conspiracy I see here is the fact that the banks want us to trust them.

Pretty soon, they will be using the slogan: (made by myself)

Nothing to see here folks, just keep your minds on other things...

Keep researching!

What is the source for those images?

I'm interested in looking into it. Or is this 'In theory?'

Oops. Forgot the source, which I rarely do...

I saw the billboard yesterday riding around through PA.
If I see it again, I will take a picture, but the first one is from their website.

I then went to the site and found their slogan (Good Citizen) a little disgusted and made my own version. ( Good American)

Thanks AshleyD!

Thanks. Looking into it now.

'Citizen's Bank.' Never heard of them.

It does certainly remind me of something from 1984.

It reminds me of something out of Nazi Germany to bolster the sale of War Bonds.

Yes this is damage control.

In response to the many people who withdrew their money out of the Banks a few years ago, as I did instead of earning a whopping 2% annual interest rate.

That's a whopping 2 cents on a Dollar per year !

Which by the way is actually less than the inflation rate so you are actually losing money in actual purchasing power !

It should actually read " Be a good Sheep and let us steal your money".

Talk about propaganda, sheesh, I woke up and my stomach was a little topsy-turvy now I'm really sick after reading this.

Can I just throw up, take a pic of it and post that as my response?

No? Hmmm, ok, words only eh?

This truly disgusts me. To equate good banking with citizenship is horrifying. We need to bring down the International Banking Cartel and they are telling us that banking is good citizenship? Supporting banks is good citizenship?

The government already bailed them out with billions, trillions of our dollars, which ticked a few people off to say the least. To counter that they pull out the propaganda card with crap like this?

The only words I have left are this is thoroughly abominable.

Just to add to this thread I took a picture from my cell on a drive through PA yesterday.

This is definitely propaganda and I don't like the meaning.

I don't think good banking is good citizenship.

Hilarious update!
I just witnessed an ad here on ATS for Citizens Bank.

No wonder this thread didn't take off!
We support the bank that tells you on to be a good citizen.

I've never heard of Citizen Bank either, but after a quick google search their site looks identical to Charter One. After looking at their about us page, they are owned by RBS which is the current same parent company of Charter One.

What I find interesting, for those that do not know is that RBS stands for the Royal Bank of Scotland. According to a simple wiki

Foundation Dundas House, designed by Sir William Chambers and built in 1774 for Sir Lawrence Dundas and acquired by the bank in 1821.[2] Registered Head Office of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh. The bank traces its origin to the Society of the Subscribed Equivalent Debt which was set up by investors in the failed Company of Scotland to protect the compensation they received as part of the arrangements of the 1707 Acts of Union. The Equivalent Society became the Equivalent Company in 1724, and the new company wished to move into banking. The British government received the request favourably as the "Old Bank", the Bank of Scotland, was suspected of having Jacobite sympathies. Accordingly the "New Bank" was chartered in 1727 as the Royal Bank of Scotland, with Archibald Campbell, Lord Ilay appointed as its first governor. In 1728, the Royal Bank of Scotland became the first bank in the world to offer an overdraft facility.

Why exactly is the Royal Bank of Scotland desiring or informing me how to be a good American citizen?

I really love the "turn rewards into donations" part above.

Fat chance! I'll be donating any and all rewards to myself, thank you very much.

I think the real question it why would any bank tell someone how to be a good citizen?

Because banks run this world.
The IMF is traceable all the way to your paycheck.

The IMF makes all the necessary calls for lending and stealing in all banks.

I think they are using the phrase because its catchy, i,e., 'Citizens' bank.
But it remains a constant reminder of how powerful the banking cartel is.

People are supposed to think they NEED banks.
Well, in this day and age where everything thats not affordable needs a loan...
You need banks.

So set the inflation rate higher than the gross pay in households and you have a monopoly for generations.

Things shouldn't be soo expensive you need a loan for them.
You should be able to buy a car or house without going into debt.
But you can't.
You can save enough money to buy a car with cash, but after $10,000 the gov't steps in and raises a flag about your taxes and again you need more money to pay those said taxes.

What a great lifestyle! Debt is good!
