Well isn't that nice and civic oriented of them to stay out of politics and mind their business? Fingers crossed, they'll take the money that they're not using to buy elections and instead make a donation to various job creation, community service type organizations across this same country whose economy they've managed to destroy. *shrug* I'm just saying.
On the other hand, I sure wish Target had taken a clue...
It is with a broken heart that I recently learned that one of my most favoritest mass retailer has contributed $150,000 in cash and services to MN Forward, a PAC in Minnesota that supported the election of Republican Tom Emmer governor of the state.
It turns out that not only is Emmer anti-gay marriage but he also very publicly supports You Can Run But You Cannot Hide Intl., a Christian right organization that calls the execution of gays and lesbians morals.
But wait on it, when they were called to the mat for making this donation they basically responded by saying we make political decisions based on business not civic rights. (READ: To hell with your human rights, and how you feel. we're helping out whomever is gonna keep business taxes low).
Corporate America sucks. And while it may be all about business to them, civic rights are important to me and all my friends. The End.
