    Shareholders weigh in on Target and Best Buy’s political giving - Yahoo! News

    Matter of fact, I just bought my new black Wii and Wii Fit Plus from Best Buy.

    Let's not let these people intimidate corportions from giving to the candidates they think best support their interests.

    These are liberals trying to suppress the freedom of speech via your wallet.

    My kid needs a lot of back to school things. I guess I'm going to Target! ;)

    I used to shop at Target quite a bit. Will not while they make such donations....you can buy what I might have...no skin off my nose. As for Best Buy...Frys is cheaper and has more, Best Buy was never a shopping option in the first place.

    BTW...I'm not one to advocate formal boycotts...just doing what I'm doing by my own choice.


    However, ask Coors how powerful Gay boycotts can be.

    I wonder how important my one vote is compared to a $300,000 contribution. Never mind. I know the answer.

    But wait! I recall the right saying not to buy at target because their being French owned or somesuch?

    Can't you wussies ever make up your mind? Ohh wait I guess Fox told you to do this now and that then.
    Ok, follow along little sheeple.

    lol best buy is a huge ripoff. newegg is 70% cheaper in some cases and its $3 for two day shipping. for instance, some best buy stores charge $80 for hdmi cables that are $12 on newegg

    But for me, it's six miles away, and anything else that has comparable products is 40 miles.:(

    you are already on the Internet.

    go to newegg.com and compare the price difference. like I said its $3 for two day shipping and many times I get the order the next day. newegg also has way more selection

    So boycotting an organization = suppression of freedom of speech.

    Riiiight!

    Do you honestly believe that or are you really that stupid?
