You're right, but they're so excitable and it's fun to get them worked up.

Way to go Target! Good Job!

Screw the perverts, and keep them out of Target so they can quit ogling my little boys, we're sick of it, especially in Downtown Mpls. I ought to be able to have my youngsters wear shorts in the hot summer without some freak staring at their crotch.

Why these deviants think a conservative, Republican corporation should give them money is beyond me.

They need to do a little more research into the Board of Directors.

Right on. These deviants think if they use bullying tactics that they can get the masses to start accepting them into normal society, all of which is false of course.

And anyone who does not agree with there gay lifestyle is called a bigot or racist or other such nonsense. Go Target!

Yippee!! Thank God some corporate types know how to stand up to bullies. I'll get to a Target as soon as I can and BUY SOMETHING, ANYTHING.

And I'll be sure to tell them why because I don't habitually shop at Target. Let's hope this emboldens some other corporations who have been knuckling under to the pressure. When they see Target's sales go up, they'll realize they are kissing up to the wrong section of the demographics.

Corporations like Target; Best Buy, and Polaris, bear the tax burden to keep YOUR property taxes low
.
If Minnesota corporations get tax relief; then private citizens have to make up the difference by paying higher taxes. If you work for one of those companies; the taxes come out of YOUR paycheck; instead of the company's profits
.
Your vote determines who pays; the corporations or you. Can you afford it?
No, but at least people will pay more attention to what our legislators are paying for, then my vote will have even more impact.
