For those of you who don't already know, JCPenney has already hired open homosexual, Ellen DeGeneres (a.k.a. 'Ellen') to be the spokesperson for JCPenney, in order to revive their sagging sales revenue. Theoretically, there is nothing wrong with that, because it's a free market. But Ron Johnson, CEO of JCPenney, took it ONE STEP FURTHER, by publicly stating LIVE, on CBS News, that Ellen "shares the same 'values' that we do in our company (JCPenney)".

Here's the link, with the video:
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_162-57373794/j.c-penney-ceo-on-ellen-degeneres-controversy/

So what exactly are those "values" that Ellen DeGenerate and JCPenney share? Gay Marriage? Gay Adoption? Alternative Lifestyle Families?? Partial-Birth Abortion??

I don't know about you, but I am NO LONGER going to patronize JCPenney! I had purchased jeans and some PNP video game from them in my local mall in the past. But now that the CEO of JCPenney has publicly stated that Ellen and JCPenney share the same "values", I REFUSE to give JCPenney another dime!

The only thing that I forgot to say in this post is to support OneMillionMoms.com in this fight to stop liberal corporations like JCPenney from perpetuating the culture of deviance and death. Even though I disagree with some aspects of their approach to this issue with JCPenney, I fully SUPPORT their cause. Their website is as follows:

Things you might have little grasp of, like decency, kindness, and an annoyingly cutesy sense of humor.





I don't know about you, but I am NO LONGER going to patronize JCPenney!

I think DU is having a sale on boycotts today. Two for one you can boycott businesses you rarely patronized in the first place.

Oh fucking grow up you little shithead. I shop at JCPenny's not because of Ellen Degenerate but because they have the clothes that fit someone who needs his shirts to say XLT or XXLT depending on the manufacturer.
Hell, even though I can't stand Levi's politics, there jeans are second to none in quality. The ONLY reason I don't buy them is what they charge. Im not spending 50 dollars on jeans.

Stop trying to create outrage where there is none. We have Mitt Romney to elect to the White House.

I don't see the big deal. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a homosexual in print advertising. Underwear, cars, lawyers, beer commercials- damned sodomites are everywhere.

Is it really that big of a deal that Penneys hired an openly gay woman to be their spokesperson? Ellen is not exactly in your face about her sexuality anymore, like she was when she first came out.

I haven't shopped at Penney's since I was a kid-as a teenager, I used to love their denim overalls. Big Mac, Square Back. But they kind of lost their niche in the market when they tried to compete with more upscale stores in the 80s, and their place in the market got taken by Kohls, Marshalls and Target in the 90s.


But in the 70s, when I was a kid, my mom bought most of our clothes there. They had the right combination of quality and value back then.

Penney's is a valuable resource for my family. My niece isn't very tall, and finding the right clothes and especially hosiery is difficult. To the best of my knowledge, since Parklane Hosiery appears to have gone out of business, Penney's is the only department store which still has a FULL selection of women's hosiery and a clerk who knows about hosiery. They also have the right size proper foundation garments for a young woman who likes to dress with style and structure.

Who in the hell cares if JCP has Ellen DeGeneres doing their commercials? Good Lord. This is just an epic case of stuck on stupid.

On a relative scale, she has never really been all that in-your-face about being a lesbian. Not when you compare her to, say, Rosie O'Donnell.

It's news stories like this that keep me grounded in what's important. It's all too easy to get distracted by the economic and human carnage going on around the world and in this country. We must all try to stay more in tune with vital issues like who JC Penny is associating with because stuff like this can easily get out of hand.

You are correct, however, for those of us who would rather not do business with someone who would do business with Ellen DeGenerate, it is noteworthy.

I still won't buy Levis because of the company position on same sex "partner" benefits, and they did that about 20 years ago.

The big deal, as I said in my original post, is the fact that JCPenney CEO Ron Johnson, publicly declared on national television that Ellen Degenerate fully represents JCPenney's values. I am against Ellen's (and now JCPenney's) values, and I refuse to spend my hard-earned money to help JCPenney promote those ass-backwards values. (Feel free to take 'ass-backwards' literally, if you wish.)
