    LBGTQ

    I stopped linking what I watch, who I listen to, and what investments I make based on what actors, musicians, and athletes believe. I also do not buy into companies because of what they support. So many famous people and are so stupid, and too many companies try too be so politically correct, that I would be living in a shell with few investments and little entertainment if I excluded all the foolish people and investments.

    With that being said, I must now add AT&T to my list of stupid politically correct companies, with their all inclusive outreach to the gay community statement this morning. I do not support you or agree with your values or lack thereof AT&T, I own you strictly for the investment value and the dividends.

    • I agree with "you" 101%%..the only think "I" want getting at my "bottom" is that capuchin monkey and an "organ grinder"..teehee (!!)

    • You want your dividends, and apparently AT&T wants you to have them too. That's why they're supporting a program meant to prevent suicide among LBGTQ youth through their "Live Proud" campaign. Sounds like a win-win to me, buddy.

        There are two sides to this suicide issue and one is never discussed and rarely even considered. The Homosexual community created the suicide problem in the first place by trying to convince young people that it is OK to be gay. They have even added the Q to the end of the LGBT ..... anybody even questioning their sexuality is now included in the LGBTQ club. Well there is a built in moral compass that most of us have, and a natural attraction to the opposite sex. Prior to the 60s and the radical homosexual agenda boys and girls didn't question who and what they were, they knew what they were and there were few suicides ..... as in rare. It is because of the infiltration of radical homosexuals and foolish liberal school administrators that allowed the teaching of gay is good in schools, that the I am so confused about my sexuality began. And because of that moral compass on one hand that knows who you are and knows wrong from right, and the direct opposite teaching to young impressionable minds by foolish liberals that gay is good, that is the conflict that confuses young people enough to at times attempt suicide. And rather than going back to where we once were and teach moral behavior and allow boys to be boys and girls to be girls, foolish liberals today within these companies wanting to be politically correct double down on gay is good to young people in their efforts to prevent suicide. How backwards and utterly foolish. It would be very much like the police teaching young people how to drink, text and drive safely instead of trying to stop that dangerous behavior.

    • I could not have said it any better.
