  1. Amazing Issue with Target Stores
    >>
    >> If they have a good sale in their ads, take the ad to
    >> Walmart, where they will meet the price...............
    >>
    >> Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.
    >>
    >> "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 cannot support American
    >> Veterans, then why should my family and I 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
    >> Veterans Helping Veterans
    >>
    >> SFC David Kaiser, Kay Kaiser
    >>
    >> Please send this on to everyone you know to let Target know
    >> how AMERICAN'S feel about their non-support of America and
    >> our support of them. Isn't it amazing how people can forget
    >> when we support them.

  5. Target is 2 stops after our fire station for toys-for-tots.... horseshit e-mail deal. Sad to say it happens, but sounds like a walmart douche trying to drum up business since walmart lost a TON of market share to target lately.

    Back in the day my first job was working at Target in Issaquah, worked there for a couple years while I went to school...it was a shit job, but one thing I would say is that they were constantly doing charity stuff for all kinds of organizations, and this article sounded bogus as hell as soon as I read it. Sounds like some hardcore right-winger biblethumping jackass looking for handout and a way to push his agenda...might as well have just said "Tar-gay only donates to faggots, let's bomb the queers" and got it over with.

  9. voule vous couche avec moi? God i can't believe they made that into a main stream song

    isn't that would you like to go to bed with me?

    that's no worse than many other mainstream songs...
     

  11. depends on the translation...i believe that the literal translation is "would you like to go to bed with me" however with the slang it appears more like "would you like to f#$%"

    well, depending on how you look at it, so does "would you like to go to bed with me"
