Yes, yes...you are taking your business elsewhere. Good for you. No one else cares. Now shut up and let the grown ups talk.
That is the point. I am not alone in this and our dollars will speak volumes as businesses will need to start revving up their business models soon to make it through only reciving money from half the country. Bye bye Targhetto.

And I and all my like minded friends will be spending MORE at Target. And seeing as how my friends make more money than your welfare-grubbing friends, guess what the end result it? Go back to your living room...you are missing Maury.

I bet he was gathering his news from Springer.

The reality is most of American shoppers will buy products where they get the best value. Target and stores like it have given great value for a long time and I would guess will into the future. Most of us will continue to shop there.

The FEW that will boycott shopping at Target will find themselves spending more money elsewhere in some instances. I do however believe that this FEW will be offset by a FEW MORE conservatives that will (likely spend more) at Target in the near future to offset if not give Target more value. Boycotts rarely work and in many instances they actually help the business.

How's the Arizona boycott working out for ya? Thought so.
