“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

French-owned Target needs a reminder...



Wasn't it last Christmas that Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front of their stores?
   
Dick Forrey of the  Vietnam Veterans Association wrote the following letter, asking the local Target store to be a proud sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during their Spring recognition event. (reply included):
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 and 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 is our 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..


As I dug 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! 


Without the American Vets, where would France be today?

They, most likely would be speaking German  and trading in Deutsch Marks'
