J.C. Penney Co. says it is laying off 350 more workers at its headquarters in Plano as the department store struggles to transform its business under a new CEO.

The cuts, announced Tuesday, follow the company's move in April to eliminate 600 workers at its headquarters.

Probably just cheaper to fire them than to pay their health insurance, or pay the penalty for not buying their insurance.

That's okay, as long as the 300 fayguts nationally are happy.

Maybe they need to have more sales of condoms and lubricants for their SSAD clientele.

I see German soldiers dancing through France
Played by chorus boys in very tight pants
And wait, there’s more - they win the war!
And the dances they do will be daring and new
Turn-turn-kick-turn, turn-turn-kick-turn
One-two-three-kick-turn!

Keep it light keep it bright
Keep it happy keep it snappy
Keep it sassy keep it classy—

JCPenney—Keep it Gay!

Next up: bankruptcy.

Hopefully they will go back to a family-friendly atmosphere before they have to lay off all their employees! Are they laying off the straight ones and keeping the gays?

It’s not just the gay chasing. I wonder how many other (former) JCP customers GE Bank got rid of by kicking us when we were down?

They had a FAG e-mail sent to me about their clothes and how “diverse’ they are. That’s a no-no as fags disgust me.

What a shame.

JC Penney was a Bible-Believing Christian.

He gave 90% of his income to the church, missions and charity, and only kept 10% for himself.

If he could look down from Heaven and see what the politically correct wall-street creeps have done to his name, he would cringe.

......as the department store struggles to transform its business under a new CEO.

Is "a new CEO" code for "Obama?"

Penneys is tainted with far left/progressive groups, when I canceled my charge card in February, I searched for any conservative group and found none. What I did find was located on Penneys “Heritage of Giving Page” ALL Progressive Left Social Justice groups such as:

Human rights Campaign: Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equal Rights

National Urban League: “Occupy the Vote” openly supports Obama and Calls on ALEC to Support Repeal of “Kill-At-Will” and Voter I.D. Laws

NCLR (National Council of Laraza): nuff said

Several other groups listed, did not bother to check out, as all the names were progressive left groups.

Not sure what their employees pay for their health insurance but one of my docs had to admit a patient today and a check of their benefits revealed a very poor plan with very limited benefits.

What’s AMAZING is that some 50% of the country would support a company that emphasized FAMILY VALUES and put that front and center. No double-men centerfolds, yes Christmas, yes America, etc.

One company would OWN that demographic (i.e., half of the country).

But not one does it...yet they’re not idiots...some of their management may even support this country. Yet no one does it? So why not? It’s not worth “the headaches” they will have when the mobs descend on them. That simple, it’s ALL intimidation now.

“Hopefully they will go back to a family-friendly atmosphere....”

Frankly, my dear, I don’t givea d...! I won’t shop there again at least until they ditch this faggot CEO who swerved the company into the bath house, and probably not even then.

“Guess the Gay C Penney campaign didn’t work out too well.”

Your summary is excellent.

Gay pandering only makes money in Gay Frisco.

I won’t either. I just worry about all the people who are being laid off because of their new all-gay agenda.

I went through Penny's at the mall last weekend, aside from it being half deserted, the first thing I see as I get off the escalator is a section of pre-tied bow ties.

First off it is 110 degrees out and more importantly its Greenwood, Indiana, not known as the mecca of bow ties.

The bow ties may compliment their new ad structure but it is a marketing nightmare for this area.

Suicide marketing.

I guess my boycott is working. I used to shop there a lot, and I shop for quite a few people.

My Penney in the mall has no customers and hardly any clerks. Plenty of merchandise sitting around, though.

It's eerie.

Too bad. For decades I've always purchased my bed linens and bath stuff from them.....and it has always been good quality......something I believe most freeperettes of a certain age would attest to.
