Why not donate some MORE money to the only business-friendly, jobs-friendly, taxpayer-friendly candidate?

It's obviously good for business.

Glad to see the boycott is hurting their business...LOL! I guess there are enough straight folks and people who understand Target's real position to counteract the 1% of the rainbow bunch who can't.

I demand a recount. There has to be an error. The radical rainbow revolutionaries set out to punish Target fincncially.

Are you telling me their ploy didn't work?

There must be a mistake.

are you that nuts? no one cares if your gay, but people do care about jobs!!!! Guess what, you drive Target/Best Buy out there are fewer places to work.
Quit making everything a gay/racist/religious thing, because no one wants to hear poor pity me anymore.

Wow. It looks like Moveon.org really stuck it to Target! LOL. There are so many counter-protesters who came out to support Target and will continue to do so that it makes me wonder if Target did not plan its support of Emmers knowing of the support it would receive in return.

Hold on there sissy briches! Liberals may claim a stake on Minnesota, just like they did in Michigan, California and Wisconsin but what's its value? Parts of Michigan's core cities are already ghost towns so we know their venture capitalists abandoned the rat infested sinking ship. The same can be said for Minnesota, Californioa and Wisconsin. At some point you'll all be forced to abandon your ideas or else, gulp, you'll need to woo your own investors to your vison. I can't wait.

This was a paper boycott. I spied rainbow and triangle and the "=" stickers on bumpers in Targets parking lot. Yeah they were all in a huff until they were actually in a walmart parking lot and just couldn't bring themselves to go inside.
