Further proof Americans are naive: Boycotting Target for supporting the GOP

How can we live in the age of information and not understand how Big Business and politics works? Nevermind, Barack Obama was elected President under the disguised phony campaign promises.

Let’s use this example: JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs were in the TOP 5 of donations to BOTH CANDIDATES: Obama and John McCain.

Got that: both parties.

From the NY Daily News:

Mega-retailer Target has found itself in the bullseye of a customer uprising.

In the wake of the company’s decision to donate $150,000 to a right-wing conservative’s political campaign, former Target shoppers across the country are calling for a nation-wide boycott.

And the movement to protest the super-saver store is gaining buzz – and traction – on Facebook and Twitter, as a petition threatening a boycott of Target rebounds across the Internet.

“Target should stay out of politics, like I am gonna stay out of your store if you don’t,” Facebook user Erlene Adair Harvey wrote on Target’s fan page.


Bugs Bunny explosion photoTarget probably donated a ton of cash to the Democratic candidate, let’s say for State Senate, if they felt like that helped the prosperity of their company.

Hey Protesters: “Do you think these Big Businesses are going to support your liberal, socialist candidates if they are going to try to unionize the Walmart/Target work force?”

This was orchestrated by the MoveOn.org group, so you are basically being manipulated by their agenda. So, let’s put these MoveOn.org and SEIU protesters on one side of the street and have Glenn Beck and FOX organize a Tea Party protest on the other side and see who wins.

You know who wins – nobody.

Nobody wins because that is NOT the battle you should be fighting.

If you don’t like Target because they gave money to Conservatives, so be it, shop at Wal-Mart (who probably did the same thing), but to be more constructive – go raise money for the “other guy”

By the way, you should simply be embarrassed to even buy into the juvenile slogan: “Boycott Target Until They Cease Funding Anti-Gay Politics” – really, that’s the ridiculous dotted line that your liberal MoveOn.org has connected for you.

If there was this kind of energy spent on making politicians read the bills they sign or follow the Constitution, America would be great again.

State of the Naton banner from Crazed Fanboy

The “State of the Nation” column by Brandon Jones began on a website called Crazed Fanboy to discuss topics that the regular media were not reporting or barely discussed. While there was a strong political tone, there were no limits to topics or arenas discussed.

As the relationship with Crazed Fanboy deteriorated, the partnership between Robert Herriman (author “Insights”) and the Brian strengthen to for the current “Desk of Brian”.

Just as we have John Does or Average Joes, we created the “Regular Guy” approach to sorting through the news, adding our own commentary and opinions, fused with contributors from all over the globe.
