We The People in the news again - Target

| No Comments

I don't shop at Target - was in there a couple times maybe ten years ago but they do not have anything that I like. This is interesting news though - from the Investment Watch Blog:

Target Teetering On The Brink Of Financial Collapse
The boycott against Target over its bathroom policy is costing the retailer more than anybody expected, as a record share price plunge and weak sales drive the big-box retailer to the brink of financial collapse.

In April last year after Target announced that it would welcome transgender customers to use any bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity.

Since then a determined grassroots boycott campaign has dug its heels in, and the company is having trouble hiding the financial damage.

Target’s already disappointing stock price plunged a further 13 percent in early trading on Tuesday, putting the embattled retailer on pace for its worst day in almost twenty years and dragging the company dangerously close to the financial abyss.

Target also reported sales and earnings that missed Wall Street’s expectations, in what was a devastating holiday quarter for the big-box retailer.

The thing that gets me is that the real gays - that 3% of our population who live out their lives quietly and who just happen to prefer same-sex mates or cross-dressing or whatever floats their boat; they have been using the bathrooms that they prefer for years and years without anyone being the wiser (or if they are the wiser, they have the common grace to keep their big yap shut). The people making the problems are the new generation of politically-correct . virtue-signaling . activists who feel compelled to rub every aspect of their lives in the faces of the other 97% of us.

A quick word to the newbies: take a good look at the damage you are doing to your own cause and please just STFU. We are very tolerant but we have a very low threshold for hypocrisy.
