What people say to you in the office and casually is NOT reality. Most Americans (JCP's average shopper) are not on board with the 'Ellen' thing.
Just like Fluke has backfired on the Dims/Socialists, so will Ellen backfire on JCP. RJ's life in SF and his probable circle of people do not reflect the average JCP shopper in fly-over country.
This is going to be a very expensive experiment in retail.
The liberals know how to yell loud and whine a lot. They are often given into just to shut them up. People are voting with their wallets on this one though and unfortunanty JCP blew it.
The best thing right now could be a shareholder revolt to run this bad judgemental magement out of there but my guess is, like most liberals, they are too arogant to admit they were wrong. JCP, another American institution collapsing because of liberalism
There wouldn't be American institutions if it weren't for liberalism. The Founding Fathers like Jefferson and Madison were the liberals of their day.
In England and Canada, conservatives are still called Tories, just like they were in colonial America. So your poitical legacy is that of Benedict Arnold and Count Rumford.
Tories like you still hate and try to subvert the Bill of Rights.
Quite correct. Penneys merchandising was geared towards families. Right or wrong, hiring a controversial individual is a sure way to alienate some of the population. Firing Rush just angered even more people. To suceed a store must appeal to as many people as possible. Penneys just walked away from a considerable part of its market share at the worst time possible.
Penneys is toast
We all know that you right-wing red staters shop at K-Mart and Walmart.
Ellen is only controversial to hate mongers like you. To normal Americans, she is a well-liked entertainment figure.
Rush is a lying dope addict. He insults his audience by calling them "dittoheads" meaning they don't have the brains to think for themselves, but should just parrot his drivel.
How are the GOP primaries working out for you? The flip-flopper seems to be unstoppable. Santorum thinks he is running for Grand Ayatollah.
Fluke was promoting the US government telling individual health providers what they had to offer to customers. That is a political stance. Ellen is simply promoting a store, not a lifestyle. That's a huge difference. If in any way she were promoting a lifestyle I would say get her out of there. That is not the case.
