Target broke my heart
You have taken the best years and dollars of my life and broken my heart into a million pieces! I hope you become as lousy as Wal Mart, and can't get any great Mom's to shop you. Evidently you never DID deserve me you lyin' sack of dog poop. I thought I was supporting the lesser of the big box evils. You told me you were supportive of gay families. You told me you were supportive of my community. You are headquartered in my state. But you LIE.
The horrendous new rule that corporations have the same rights as individuals does not give you license to act like an ass. You think I'm going to buy that line that you only did it for us? That you only backed Tom Emmer because he was a "business friendly candidate"? Did you forget that the people who keep you business are in fact, actual people? And plenty of them are GAY and GAY FRIENDLY like me and my family?
Did you know that lousy MN gubernatorial candidate you favor, Tom Emmer, wants to lower the minimum wage for wait staff because he believes tips make them wealthy? You must have forgotten all those waiters that shop at your place. What did you think would happen when their meager wages disappeared? Oh sure he's backpedaling off that statement now. He also "pals around" (to use one of right's favorite phrases) with some folks who openly advocate violence toward my LGBT friends and family.
There may be some forgiveness inside me, maybe. MAYBE. But here's what has to happen first. You fire that CEO who swam in the cowpie in the first place. Then to make up for all the hateful stuff you've supported, you make equal contributions to the other side, including the DFL. Then you publicly apologize for your behavior and publicly state you will never, ever mess with campaigns again.
All I, and all other consumers like me, can hope is that your cheating lying corporate friends see the humiliation you've suffered, especially the drop in your stock. Even though the supposed Supreme Court gave them the right, actually tampering with our elections will cost them dearly.
Yes OUR elections
Expected More, Got Less
Your ex-favorite customer,
