Open Box - Leupold VX-Freedom 2-7x33 - Duplex Riflescope only $169.99 As I am sure you're aware Leupold scopes come in from Leupold shrink wrapped (which is annoying as once we cut one open to show it to a customer then it is perceived to no longer be new). Such is the case with one of these scopes so we are offering it here at a reduced price. Opened to show a customer who looked at about a dozen scopes and decided on a FFP Meopta Artemis 2000 1.5-6x42. Leupold VX-Freedom 2-7x33 - Dupl...

Culture carries UCLA women’s basketball into 4th straight NCAA tournament

LOS ANGELES — If it had been up to the players, UCLA’s women’s basketball team likely wouldn’t have played in the 2015 WNIT at all. The Bruins were 13-19, fed up from a frustrating season that included several blown late-game leads, and would have much preferred to be on spring break instead of running through practice drills. But it wasn’t up to them. “(The coaches) wanted to put the future of the program first,” said Kari Korver, a redshirt sophomore that season who is now in her first season ...

How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed ~ VIDEO

Opinion USA – -( In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America's permanent minority party. In the Golden State, Dem...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

Zipcar Disruption

This isn't a security story, but it easily could have been. Last Saturday, Zipcar had a system outage: "an outage experienced by a third party telecommunications vendor disrupted connections between the company's vehicles and its reservation software." That didn't just mean people couldn't get cars they reserved. Sometimes is meant they couldn't get the cars they were already driving to work: Andrew Jones of Roxbury was stuck on hold with customer service for at least a half-hour while he and ...

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

The satirical punk website The Hard Times is ready to make some noise as a podcast

Friends Matt Saincome and Bill Conway once ran a story on their satirical punk website The Hard Times that had the headline “Pretentious Friend Only Listens to Podcasts On Vinyl.” They should hope nobody is that pretentious or they may have to blow wads of cash on pressing and distributing vinyl records since they have a fledgling podcast network of their own now. And with a guest list that so far has included punk legends from bands including Minor Threat and Cro-Mags, this podcast is no joke. ...

Increased Minimum Wages Require Hour Cuts to Compensate, Whole Foods Example Shows

Amazon recently began a $15 minimum wage for its employees at Whole Foods, but then the grocery store began cutting workers’ hours, according to the Guardian. The multinational e-commerce company enacted the increased wage in November for all U.S. workers, in response to public pressure and criticism over its pay for employees. The same wage increase that the supermarket chain employees fought for, however, has lead to widespread cuts across stores, Whole Foods employees told The Guardian. “My ...
