The natural conclusion to Union Insanity. See story HERE
November 16th, 2012
Regressives, don’t worry about this! The Union bosses have a couple of million to live off of for the next few years, so they won’t suffer. Instead rejoice at the greedy CEO who is out of a job now, yeah baby teach them a lesson UNION POWER!
Oh? The 18,000+ that have lost their jobs. Well they better be sure they buy ObummerCare or they are going to get fined!
This has to be quite the conflict in the White House. On one hand, moochelle doesn’t want anyone but her eating fattening food, so she’s happy Hostess is gone, on the other hand O’Idiot hates all businesses and sides with all unions, so he wants the unions to win. Hmmmm who will prevail?
Little Debbie’s coming out with a new item – Banana Republic Cream Rolls.
Paging John Galt.
Look on the bright side former hostess workers…..you can now get free condoms to put on your real twinkies.
On the bright side, a lot of moms’ basements just got a bit cleaner. If the union workers at the Slim Jim and Hot Pocket factories nut up and go on strike, it could turn into a real trollocaust.
The bigger the moocher class grows, the thinner the handouts become. Eat shit, America.
jus sayin yo
Once again, the inimitable, Jack Cashill:
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, which has no interest in deceiving, the answer is yes. Immediately, one suspects some element of fraud, but fraud isn’t the real issue here. Obama was producing nearly comparable numbers in inner-cities throughout America, especially those in contested states.
Worse than fraud is the process that turned nearly 20,000 black Philadelphians — and millions of inner-city dwellers throughout the country — into automatons. Hope does not produce this kind of regimentation. Fear does. In looking at these numbers, in fact, one can begin to see how, 34 years ago this Sunday, in the jungles of Guyana, Jim Jones was able to persuade 918 of his followers, most of them poor and black, to drink their lethal Kool-Aid. Fear can do that.
Not surprisingly, it was while at college — Indiana U — that Jim Jones got his first injection of Marx, and he was hooked from the beginning. Given that promoting communism in 1950′s Indianapolis held about as much promise as promoting traditional marriage in contemporary San Francisco, Jones took another tack. “I decided how can I demonstrate my Marxism,” he would recount years later. “The thought was ‘infiltrate the church.’”
That night Jones put his well-drilled minions through a “White Night” exercise. They had been through this before, drinking the proverbial Kool Aid and surviving. They likely presumed that this was just another test of their loyalty. It wasn’t. This time the drink was heavily laced with valium and cyanide. Everyone who drank it died. Those who refused to drink it were injected with it. As to Jones, he shot himself.
Despite the tragedy, Democrats from the president on down have continued to do almost exactly what Jones did and get away with it: embrace minorities, alert a partisan media to the embrace, woo the minorities for their support, reward them for it with Obamaphones and the like but never with real power, scare them with tales of racist whites, promise to protect them from those whites, engineer societies (or school systems) from which there is no escape, and when all goes to hell, as it inevitably does, blame Mitt Romney or some evil “other.” In 2012, this strategy would seem to have paid off. Despite record poverty and unemployment, atrocious schools and neighborhoods, all the residents of Obama’s Jonestowns voted for him.
“They’re going to put y’all back in chains,” Joe Biden told a group of African American supporters in August.
Silly us — we thought it was a gaffe!
Well, “Ho Ho”…Ho…Merry Christmas union ho thugs. Have some lumps of coal for your stockings. All of the remaining producers will be forced to pony up MORE taxes to support all of these jobless people. The COOTUS’(Community Organizer of The U.S.) plan for the destruction of capitalism is humming along.
Typical Dims are dysfunctional when it comes to math… “What would you rather have; an eight percent pay cut or a hundred percent pay cut? Duh, gimmee the hundred, I want it all!
heh heh, C.C. said COOTUS
Let them eat cake. Lots and lots of cake.
@ Cowgirl…. where the hell are they gonna get lumps of coal for their stockings from? The Goonions along w/ the EPA already killed that industry… Your statement makes as much sense a an AQHA official… just sayin’
Da Penguin Asks: Are we there yet
Those ding dongs should have known that they did not have a snowballs chance of beating the company on this one.
I guess their leaders must be twinkie toes and thought they could continue to sponge off the company for years.
Now I guess we all know that there is an expiration date for Hostess products.
The obesity rate is going to skyrocket now.
@yourfavoriteunkle, Oh. Yes, you are right. How about road apples in their stockings, instead?
What’s Moose going to do now that she can’t get her Ding Dongs and Twinkies?
Who will be the first to ask the FLOTUS how this news has affected her sex life?
Brain bleach need for that thought, But I had to.
Stirrin the B.S.
And to add insult to injury, their severence checks will have their union dues deducted from them.
No more “Twinkie Defense” at murder trials:
@persecutor – Mooch is already married to a twinkie who sticks his ding dong into Reggie’s fudge pie.
More people introduced to government largesse. Many who will live the rest of their lives on food stamps, SSI and obamaphones.
@AbigailAdams, the moochers look at it as an early retirement plan, don’t they?
Nope, your all wrong so far.
The one comment on union bosses having plenty of stolen loot to live off of is correct and the wage-slaves that produce the product can become good democrats by becoming unemployed.
Because after all according obumbles & Co. when your on your 99 weeks of unemployment, food stamps, housing, fuel assistance, WIC, and welfare, you are now a PRODUCTIVE member of united states!
Welcome to vacation land commrades!
Grab a great big glass of kool-aid and relax, because those greedy evil richie-riches are now gonna support you for AT LEAST the next 2 years!
Another Great Moment In The History of Corporate/Job Killing Unions.
Good Job Comrades!
……Bakers Union strikes against Hostess and apparently steps on its “Ding Dong” forcing Hostess as a corporation to deliver the final blow. A swift kick in the “Snow Balls”. The “Twinkies and Cupcakes of the world begin to “Wonder” were thier “Bread” will come from now?……Film at 11…….Pretty bad huh? Oh well its Friday what can I say!
Come on folks, you can’t seriously expect our benevolent overlords to let 18,000 dues pay union drones lose their jobs and not involunetarily support the Democratic party? There has got to be a bailout money sitting around unused somewhere in this Administration. Maybe Health and Human Services or the Ag Dept will step in and nationalize Hostess.
then they change the name to something more appropriate like Hostage, turn the company over to the union and they rename their pastry treats to something more marketable to the 47%.
Twinkies = Whities – get back at the man and eat his white guts out
Ho Ho = No Hope – for social justice till capitalism is finally dead.
Ding Dong = Bing Bong – now with canibis filling, get high and satisfy your munchies at the same time.
Hostess Cup Cakes = Oven No Bakes- with free birth control filling (for young unmarried women only).
Wow. Irony. You nailed it.
G-d I hate unions
The feel good story of the week.
Socialism: It’s as American as eating cats and dogs!
“If you strike, we’ll have to sell out and close.”
“THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
little late to be leaapin outta the hot pot NOW, ain’t it PROGGIES??
I’m so glad Kyra Sedgewick retired before this happened. I don’t think she could have stood to go on without Ding Dongs.
And remember kids, the union had nothing to do with this, what so ever! It was all the evil CEO and greedy stockholders.
(Read that explaination on the ‘net already.)
It’s Bush’s fault!

This company is too delicious to fail.
How long will it be before you call someone a “twinkie” and they won’t know what you meant?
F.D.R. in Hell
** sniff **
The Twinkie was born in 1930 and survived the Great Depression and several wars. The Baker’s Union just wanted too much dough.
When I was a kid my mom used to pack Twinkies in my lunch. They were my favorite. One day I had waaaay too many Twinkies and the results were…shall we say, “predictable.”
Even though that incident was circa 1st grade, occasionally, now as an adult someone would offer me a Twinkie. My response was always, “Nah, too soon.”
I was looking forward to maybe one day having a Twinkie again in the retirement home but alas, it’s not to be.

Oh Noes! What will we fat people do?

Franklin, you’re about as funny as a flat tire on a wheelchair.
Obummer the first President to lose our credit rating and a major piece of snack history all in one term! Three sneers for Barry!
SUCK ON IT HARD for the creamy goodness you Fn POS union assholes
The good news is that sometime in the future, Hostess snack foods will probably come back – it’s just the manufacturer will be different. As part of the liquidation, the parent company will be selling off these brands to other manufacturers.
So far as the Union employees, though, they are pretty much screwed. If the parent company liquidates, their union contracts are gone, their jobs are gone, and they will have gained nothing. But that’s what sometimes happens when you bet it all on red.

TastyKake was always better anyway.
Unions, Government, and Greedy companies – the perfect trifecta of the US industrial decline.

Yarnell’s Ice Cream Company in Arkansas rose out of the great depression and prospered until that bastard 0bama came along. The company had to shut its doors in June 2011. Yarnell’s was bought at a bankruptcy sale in November 2011 by Schulze & Burch, and now they are making the famous Southern ice cream again using the original recipes.
