    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?

    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.

    Once again, the inimitable, Jack Cashill:

    http://www.americanthinker.com/printpage/?url=http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/../2012/11/obamas_jonestowns.html

    Obama’s Jonestowns

    [...]
    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!

    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!

    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).

    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.

    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.
