Tarnished "charity" brand: The "Humane Society" of the United States
- Gives less than half of one percent of it's fundraising haul to local pet shelters (HSUS doesn't run a single one anywhere in the world);
- Lobbies against No-Kill shelters and sells euthanasia training videos for $399 (while not running a single pet shelter anywhere in the world);
- Takes millions of dollars from criminals like Michael Vick (via his wealthy supporters and the Eagles, and from for-profit education mill kingpin Arthur E. Benjamin (who stole $200 million from the feds for his company, ATI Enterprises. Morally bankrupt HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle appointed this lowlife to the HSUS National Council);
- Raised $35 million after Hurricane Katrina and spent just 20% of it on Katrina; spent just $400,000 on Hurricane Sandy, despite a similar fundraising windfall. Uses legal loopholes to escape fraud charges.
--works with the scandal-plagued direct mail mill Quadriga Art; funneling nearly $10 million a year to them - minus kickbacks.
The problems at JCP's? I agree with the assessment about the new clothing lines. Although even at my age, 70, I can and do wear some of the edgier styles, I prefer clothes that one can actually go to a formal meeting or church in and not look like an idiot. Of course, since they did away with the only line, Worthington, that seems to have even a few small/petite sizes, I can't find anything that fits me anyway. Our local store has so few clothes and such a limited selection that the styles are immaterial since there is little choice.
Now they are "remodeling" the only thing I still go there for, the hair salon.
As to Apple, I have traditionally resisted their exclusivity and price gouging, but made the fatal mistake of purchasing an IPhone and then in spite of having their supposed additional warranty/insurance, went through the agony of trying to get it repaired. Never again!!!
