BuzzFeed twerp Andrew Kaczynski goes after NRA following Navy Yard shooting

At least 12 fatalities have been confirmed following this morning’s shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, but BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski wants to make sure we don’t lose sight of the real perpetrators of this horrific crime:

Kaczynski’s suggestion that the NRA should bear any culpability for the Navy Yard tragedy is not only wrong, it’s disgusting. And tweeters are rightly giving him the business:

We do.

If you thought the Mary Burke firing story was bad, it gets worse!

Snicker.

Well, it’s been a tough week for Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke. First, Obama campaigned for her and Wisconsin Dems fled the scene early. Snicker. Now this news:

Fired. From her family business … double snicker! OK, that is bad enough, but there is an absolutely brutal aspect to it that is being overlooked:

From the article:

Two former high-level executives of Trek Bicycle claim that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke was forced out as head of European operations for her family’s business 21 years ago — an allegation that Burke and the company denied, labeling it a last-minute smear campaign.

“I’m not saying she was incompetent,” said Tom Albers, former Trek chief operating officer who left the company in 1997. “Maybe this job was too big for her.”

But, hey, she’s totally up for the job AS GOVERNOR.

Yep. Rightly so.

Remember Them? What Your Favorite Child Stars Are Doing Now.

Being a child actor is tough and can take quite a lot out of people. Everyone knows that former child stars can end up with some serious problems from being in the spotlight for too long, too early. While some may stick with the entertainment business, others get out and return to the “normal” world. Stars! They’re just like us as in…they’re not really stars in the stricter sense of the term. 

Oh well, they’ll always hold a special place in our hearts. 

1.) Now a professor of medieval studies, he teaches Weird Chivalry.

2.) You can also find her as a voice actor on “Welcome to Night Vale” and getting into Twitter spats with E.L. James.

3.) She also looks fantastic.

4.) Also looking fabulous.

5.) Kept her penchant for leather jackets.

6.) He sure does love those collared shirts…

7.) And Danica McKellar, who played Winnie, became a mathematician and author.

8.) Good for you, Fergbreath!

9.) I wonder how tired she is of people commissioning her for dinosaur-themed art.

10.) Good thing she didn’t run off with Duane.

(Via Piximus)

See? Being a child actor doesn’t always end in disaster. Sometimes, they just end up like everyone else in the world, which is pretty awesome.

Zing! Small biz sign [pic]: ‘Government didn’t build this business; We did’

Breitbart.com’s Dana Loesch tweeted a picture of a sign hanging inside a local business last night. And it’s beautiful.

Of course, a wilfully ignorant Twitter user had to trot out the “but … but … roads!!” nonsense.

@dloesch who built the road that business is on?

— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) November 11, 2012

He was swiftly given the business.

@sethdavishoops @dloesch Ummm … that would be all of us who pay taxes. Are you under the impression that the government has its own money?

AQ official on 9/11: ‘Idol of capitalism was brought to the ground’

http://twitter.com/#!/abusulayman321/status/510084456850669569

Abu Sulayman al Muhajir—an extremist Muslim preacher from Australia—is now reportedly a top Al Qaeda official in Syria. He took to Twitter today to gloat about the attacks of  September 11, 2001. The account is not verified, though we don’t think Twitter is in the business of verifying terrorist accounts. One never knows though.

On this day, in 2001, the USA's largest economic shrine, the idol of capitalism was brought to the ground..the toll of injuctice is hefty.

— أبو سليمان المهاجر (@abusulayman321) September 11, 2014

Most American capitalists are entrepreneurs and small business owners. They don’t have idols or shrines, but you wouldn’t expect this neck-bearded megalomaniac jihadist to grasp that.

@abusulayman321 Stock market was up & running less than 4 days later. Nothing was done but old buildings demolished for new Freedom Tower.

Macy’s Is Making Its Own Version Of T.J. Maxx And Nordstrom Rack

The “off-price” channel, home of discounted designer goods, is the place to be in retail. Macy’s plans to pilot a new off-price chain as well as expand its Bloomingdale’s outlet locations.

Macy’s Facebook

TJ Maxx Facebook

The success of T.J. Maxx and Nordstrom Rack is pulling Macy’s into the off-price chain game — and highlighting the pervasiveness of outlet culture in America.

The department store company, which announced plans last month to explore a set of off-price stores, said yesterday that executives are working on a pilot of a T.J. Maxx-like chain, as noted by Fortune. Notably, TJX, which owns T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods, today reported annual sales that surpassed Macy’s for the first time ever, underscoring the strength of its treasure-hunting business model.

Sapna Maheshwari/BuzzFeed / Via chartbuilder

The Macy’s off-price chain will differ from Bloomingdale’s outlets, which Macy’s is also expanding, Chief Financial Officer Karen Hoguet said on an earnings call with analysts.

“It may help bring a whole new customer to Macy’s,” she said on the call. “Initially, we were nervous about putting one of the Bloomingdale’s outlets too close to a Bloomingdale’s store, and what we found is it served as an entry point for the customer. And instead of taking business away from the base Bloomingdale’s store, we actually brought new customers who learned and got comfortable with Bloomingdale’s from the outlet experience, and then went to the Macy’s store. So it’s very possible we could find that with Macy’s as well.”

The move highlights the way Americans are shopping in a post-recession world, and the appeal of chains offering goods at a permanent discount. The rise of TJX has been meteoric in the past 20 years — the company reported annual sales of $29.1 billion today, surpassing Macy’s yearly revenue by a full $1 billion.

Shoppers, hungry for deals in a sluggish economy, and influenced by the low price points popularized by fast-fashion chains, are into the idea of off-price stores, which offer a unique value proposition. While T.J. Maxx and Marshalls sell private-label goods, their more than 900 buyers are always on the hunt for “order cancellations, manufacturer overruns, closeouts, and special production direct from brands and factories.”

They carry a wide array of labels, as illustrated by the #maxxinista hashtag shoppers are encouraged to Intagram and tweet with — Kate Spade, Diane von Furstenberg, Steve Madden, to name a few. To many shoppers, the retailer feels more like an outlet channel than many factory stores, where the vast majority of brands now make lesser-quality goods specifically for their outlets.

Nordstrom has doubled down on its own version of T.J. Maxx with Nordstrom Rack. There are now 167of its discount stores, compared to 116 full-price locations, and Rack represented the chain’s biggest source of new customers last year, executives said on an earnings call last week. Neiman Marcus is aiming for the market, too, with its Last Call chain. Rather than dumping excess goods into T.J. Maxx and Marshalls — which advertise that their prices are 50% below department-store chains — companies like Macy’s and Nordstrom can use their own off-price stores to try to sell them off themselves.

“The off-price sector is one of the few in retail that’s actually growing, so everybody has to pile into it,” Rick Snyder, an analyst at Maxim Group, said in an interview with BuzzFeed News. “It appeals to the consumer who really wants to get something nice, but really can’t afford to pay full price for it, or the person who wants to treasure hunt.”

“Knowing that 80% of outlet merchandise is actually direct-to-outlet, you have a much better chance of getting a real deal at a T.J. or a Ross than you are at an outlet,” he added.

Of course, Nordstrom executives said at a September 2013 conference that only 18% to 19% of merchandise in Rack stores is transferred from full-line stores. Other goods are special closeout buys from vendors, and Nordstrom is aggressive about maintaining the integrity of the pricing it displays on tags, Blake Nordstrom, the company’s president, said at the time.

Still, it’s not always clear whether you’re “really” getting a deal or not.

But for many consumers, it’s about the value they feel they’re getting, and there’s a special thrill in seeing the price they’ll pay versus the “suggested retail price.” Plus, with a T.J. Maxx or a Nordstrom Rack, they don’t have to travel to and through a whole outlet mall; they can find the store in a suburb and trawl through tons of different designers under a single roof.

As more and more retailers push into the “off-price” channel, what remains to be seen is what they’ll end up selling. Will they remain deal destinations?

“What eventually is going to happen is as this excess inventory sort of gets absorbed into all these new off-price distribution points, you’re going to find the same thing happening as what happens as outlets,” Snyder said. “Some percent, whether it’s 50%, 70%, or 80%, is going to be manufactured direct for the off-price channel, because there are only so many overruns.”
