I don't know if this is new or old news but it is new to me and if not new certainly worth repeating. F**k the frogs and don't give Target any of your hard earned American money!

Target Stores


Subject: You won't catch my ass in Target stores again...

by Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association


Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud sponsor of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event. We
received the following reply from the local TARGET management: "Veterans
do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action
groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education." So I'm thinking, if the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and veterans in general do not meet their
donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We
were not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small
sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.


As a follow-up, I e-mailed the TARGET U.S. corporate headquarters and
their response was the same. That's their national policy. Then I looked into
the company further. They will not allow the Marines to collect for 'Toys for
Tots' at any of their stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment, they would not allow families of employees who were called up for active duty to continue their insurance coverage while they were on military service.


Then as I dig further, TARGET is a
French -owned corporation.
Now, I'm thinking again. If TARGET can not support American Veterans, then
why should I and my family support their stores by spending our hard earned
American dollars and to have their profits sent to France. Without the American Vets, where would
France be today?

Feel free to pass this along to whomever you want.

Sincerely,

Dick Forrey
