    Tyler Watson, a 20-year-old Oregonian, settled his age discrimination lawsuit last month against Dick’s Sporting Goods. In February, the retailer changed its firearms policy, raising the minimum age to buy a gun to 21. Soon after the change, Watson attempted to by a .22 caliber Ruger rifle and was turned away. The legal age to buy a gun in Oregon is 18, but Dick’s made the decision to raise the minimum age after the store learned a 19-year-old school shooter in Parkland, Florida, had legally bought a firearm from one of its stores. The corporation encouraged the government to similarly...

    The perception that only elite schools produce elite leaders needs to die. The No. 1 company in last year’s Fortune 500 was Walmart Inc., with $500 billion in revenue. That would make its chief executive, Douglas McMillon, a pretty important and powerful executive, don’t you think? Can you guess where he went to college? The University of Arkansas. He has an MBA, too. From the University of Tulsa. Second on the list was Exxon Mobil Corp. Its CEO, Darren Woods, went to Texas A&M. Third was Berkshire Hathaway Inc., run by the man many consider the greatest investor who ever...

    I wanted to play Walmart against Amazon to get the cheapest bicycle tire-tubes so I can take my grandchildren bike riding. (Pithy-Stickers came ripe in September, I told the kids to stay off the dirt, they rode on dirt, they got flats, I stayed off the dirt, I didn't get a flat.) I used the search term "cheapest bicycle tubes online walmart amazon". I had to go 3 pages down before I could find anything by WalMart, and it didn't mention bicycle parts at all. The fix is in.

    Georgetown police have arrested a man accused of stuffing a taco pińata in Walmart with stolen items, according to an arrest warrant... The couple had not paid for the pińata. A loss prevention associate reportedly found six packs of football cards, basketball cards, baseball cards and a grey T-shirt — all not paid for. The woman had items they had paid for, however. Upon talking to the couple, the associate says she noticed Irving wearing a black jacket he had not been wearing when he entered the store. According to the warrant, he took off the jacket and admitted it...

    In the past I have made a conscious effort to avoid lefty/activist businesses that I am aware of. From pro football to monopolistic search engines, it hasn't always been easy. But just last week, I ordered off of Amazon three times! What could be worse than Amazon, and more highlighted recently by Bezos, who is the worlds richest man, doesn't feel he needs to conceal his politics, either within his organizations/businesses, or his own statements. Why am I contributing to this? I was curious who here shops I have not yet done so. I believe I have reached a...

    Katy Perry's shoe that is under scrutiny for resembling blackface is about to be yanked ... TMZ has learned.

    Dear fashion people: Please stop trying to make “blackface” happen. First it was Prada. Then Gucci. Now, pop star Katy Perry (who, yes, is apparently a fashion designer) is in hot water for selling shoes that evoke — intentionally or not — the racist imagery. The styles in question — a pair of mules and some high-heeled sandals — feature eyes and big red lips, resembling minstrel makeup. TMZ reports that retailers Dillards and Walmart will pull the offending styles, though not the whole line, from their stores after facing social media backlash...

It added that the pieces were found "in a very small number of packages" and...

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaged in heated debates on Twitter today over the credibility of a Washington Post fact check article about her. Here’s what you need to know.What happened?Glenn Kessler, fact check columnist for The Washington Post, published an article Thursday about Ocasio-Cortez. In it, the liberal media personality criticized the representative’s statements about the living wage. He wrote in the piece that there is not “a vast majority” of Americans who don’t earn a living wage, despite Ocasio-Cortez’s claims. He also pointed out that both Walmart and Amazon pay workers above the minimum wage, in contradiction to...
  • Left Freaks Out at WashPost Fact Checker Giving Pinocchios to Ocasio-Cortez

    Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler's latest "Zillion Lies" update on the president was headlined "President Trump made 8,158 false or misleading claims in his first two years." Nevertheless, leftists got extremely angry that Kessler would "obsess" over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mangling facts. Eric Alterman, who unintentionally wrote the Funniest Book of 2003 -- What Liberal Media? -- now complains that Kessler is obsessed in a romantic way with AOC. Er, when Kessler's written on her precisely once in 2019, and 12 times on Trump. The president is called out for 8,158 whoppers, and AOC is up, to what, three? (Salon...

Many lives are touched by this generosity, and, more importantly, by a sense of God’s presence within the songs as Clayton sings his unto the Lord.

Robert Robles, 34, and September Alvarez, 22, were arrested when Converse police found a suspicious vehicle at about 3 a.m. in the parking lot of a Walmart located at 8315 FM78. Authorities believe the pair were trying to cook meth in the parking lot because of the odor coming from inside the car. After a search officials found five stolen handguns, drug paraphernalia, ammunition and identifying information that did not belong to either. Robles provided a false name...

    A kids’ game that asked children to defuse a plastic, pretend bomb had parents exploding with anger — and now two major retailers are pulling the controversial toy. The game, called “Cut the Wire,” asks players to defuse a fake bomb before the timer runs out. Should a player cut the wrong wire with the toy wire cutter included in the game, the bomb sounds an alarm and lights up and vibrates to recreate an explosion simulation. The toy bomb is shaped like sticks of dynamite and the packaging is covered in flames to signify an explosion that has already...
