But Ron as his ego which he calls visions, seen these CEOs before, Ron's gimmick, cheesy knockoff of Steve Jobs, acting, dressing like a 30 ish geek, those sweaters, open shirt, faux smile, with a Trump, you are cannon fodder all of you, it's your fault, not mine, this is his one trick pony show, the only thing missing from this guy is the cowboy boots, dont laugh, seen this too in a CEO, cowboot boots with a suit or non suit business wear at work. Red flags should go off before anyone like this is considered. George W Bush suffered from the same disease.

Ron Johnson must think the customers are the biggest idiots alive. Johnson's new pricing strategy is to re-ticket all JC. Penney's merchandise, again. This time Johnson is raising all the prices, so he can put up sale signs throughout the store. He seems to think that the customers won't notice that the price of the polo shirt or jeans on sale is the exact same price last week when the merchandise was not on sale.
Johnson's arrogance has cost 21,000 JC Penney employees their job. Every time JC Penney has a loss of profit, Johnson's solution is to destroy more lives by taking away jobs. Johnson lives within a fantasy world where nothing is his fault. Johnson has turned out to be the Hitler of the retail world.
It is time Johnson is stopped before he destroys more lives and a grand 105-year-old company.
