Tolerate everything, stand for nothing

So you thought Home Depot was just a do-it-yourselfer’s home and garden shop?

It turns out the giant home improvement retailer has other projects up their collective sleeve — aimed at children.

    Who cares it’s their money let them spend it like they want. You’d be livid if someone told you you couldn’t spend your money where you wanted. Example, public healthcare…

    So anything goes, Iggy? As long as you’ve got the money to pay for it? Hmm-m, play THAT out to it’s fullest extent. If some nut-case parents want to take their young children to a hard-core porno flick, that’s OK as long as they can pay the ticket price?

    As far as what you call “public health care,” let’s be clear. This is the largest expansion of the federal government in most of our lifetimes. It is a massive and costly intrusion that will ultimately decide who lives and who dies based on costs and decided by some bureaucratic functionary. Let’s stick to the subject.

    Corporations certainly have every right to fund whatever political cause they choose… and consumers have the right to vote with their wallets as to which businesses they wish to support. When advertisers supported the Folsom Street Fair in California that included nudity, S & M and a celebration of every deviant form of sexual misconduct known to man ( or woman ), the public reacted- which was their right.

    When businesses choose to support a group that is a lightning rod for protest, they need to expect some backlash. While many people are tolerant of the gay lifestyle, they still take great unbrage at pushing it at children and portraying it as just another form of normal.

    Iggy, Iggy, Iggy. Don’t tell me you’re a moral relativist? Nothing is good, nothing is bad…if it feels good, do it? That’s counter to every religion on earth, you know.

  5. Iggy says:

    No I’m not a moral relativist, but as Sherriaz said you can vote with your wallet. Blaming a company or the media for that matter for the way someone turns out always seemed like a cop out to me. It reminds me of the gun grabbers arguments that exposing a person to a gun magically turns them into a blood thirsty homicidal maniac. I do admit that upon re-reading the post I come off as abrasive especially given the fact that no negative connotation was given by seeingredaz.

    Iggy, What does any of this have to do with the “way someone turns out?“ This issue is a major company funding programs that celebrate a deviant lifestyle, and aiming their corporate dollars at the children who will be in attendance.

    The Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco is notorious for public nudity and sexual acts performed on main street in front of the SF city police and CHILDREN in attendance. Check this out for an idea of what you’re defending:

    Be aware that this is mild compared to some of the other clips and videos you can find just a few mouse clicks away. All of these perverted displays have corporate sponsors, Iggy. Miller Light was the major funding source for this one.

    Yes I agree that with you MacBeth. I’m in no way promoting that deviance directed at children is correct. There are already laws against the perversion of minors and equally disturbing should be the fact that these were not enforced in the San Fran affair. Where I don’t agree with you, is the part about sexual preference, in regards to gender, being deviant or a gateway to deviance. A part of my weekly/daily reading actually includes Michelle’s blog also.
