Why boycott Kia Cars and Target Stores?
Why Not I say, WHY NOT?
Consider carefully those three letters:
What do they mean and what do they signify within our society? With tens of thousands of Americans having recently served in the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, there can be no question that in the minds of many there will be one and only one meaning of such prominence that it will overwhelm all other considerations. And who can say that the environmental construct will not juxtapose both the emblem:
and the personification of loss . . .
The possibility extends far beyond those who served, and includes their families and close friends as well. This is the possibility of harm. The reignition of grief. For those who have experienced such loss, the sight of a person closely resembling the departed will itself be provocative, and it will happen. The combination of both such a person bearing close resemblance and the presence of an emblem bearing these three letters at a single place and time can and will stand as a form of mockery of the pain, the grief, and even the loss of life itself.
Why would anyone open the door to such possibility to their fellow humans?
Another perspective stipulates that the emblem itself must embody some potential to impact the owner on a subliminal level. Consider the buzz surrounding positive affirmations and neural linguistics. The buzz certainly is real enough, even if there are questions regarding the substance of the subject matter.
Why take a chance? Why take the chance that the emblem itself will not work on a subliminal level to negative affect in your own life or the lives of those you love?
Therefore I say,
Boycott KIA Cars
And Target Stores?
Consider these following news items:
- May 30, 2010, Apex, N.C.
- May 1, 2012, Fairfax, Virginia
- Sep 28, 2012, Oklahoma City
- November 24, 2012, Aurora, Colorado
Talk about on target . . . I would not go near that store, or any store like it, bearing such emblematic iconography in an age where intense debate is apt to break out in violence anywhere in the land.
Not out of fear mind you. It's just common sense. That, and a complete rejection of these kinds of dual use emblems . . .
And speaking of intense debate - the news last night juxtaposed the stabbing in Texas with the latest on the gun debate in DC - where relatives of the dead from Sandy Hook personally appealed to legislators for sensible gun legislation.
Is this what this nation has come to? Dueling acts of violence have become our preferred method of discourse? Let us find out. Let us know the facts. Perhaps we could begin with The Questions Surrounding Jim Jones. Can this river of blood in any way be tied to research into MKULTRA? There are those who are convinced that it is. I say that if this is so, and if our process of intense debate has indeed devolved to a state of dueling acts of random violence and if the public cannot wrest answers from the institutions and bureaucracies who have made it all possible, then it is inevitable -
the gutters of this nation will run in rivers of blood.
Or, you know, we could just have a boycott . . .
We could not only boycott - we could encourage divestiture of Target Corporation Stock, and even sell this stock short.
That is TGT on the NYSE
Did you know that 86% of Target Corporation stocks are institutionally owned? These are things like pension plans . . .
Perhaps, all we need do is whisper . . .
Kia is a different matter. Trading symbol: KIMTF.PK, and is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motors, and their trading symbol is: HYMLY.PK. To sell Hyundai short we will need someone who trades on the South Korean market.
