I’ll pass on the Don Dons, probably full of shit.
Like Imus ? 🙂
It is NOT the pay of the Unionized labor that brought down Hostess, it was management inability to change with the country changing tastes. They didn’t bring in more high fiber, low calorie, low carb selections. It was also the CEO’s 300% raises while the union membership took cut backs.
History Repeats Itself
Harken back to the Reagan days of union busting. Note that when the unions went so did the middle class who made up a majority of the union membership who bought houses, furniture, appliance, automobiles, pickup trucks, leisure equipment, and college educations. Note too that when the middle class was depleted, the nation’s economy started its downward trend which continues to this day. Busted the unions and the middle class followed right behind it.
So much for those who oppose the unions and their positive impact on the nation’s finances. More of the old, old, used up GOP’s ideas and ideals.
All of the old American companies went the way of “greed.” That’s why the quality of life in this country took a dump after 1980.
It is the big coroperations that want to break labor unions, don’t they know that is what makes them rich?
Good riddance to a company that helped make people fat and ill. Sorry for the workers though.
Everyone wants to blame the Union, but frankly I think people are eating better and this company just did not keep up with the times. I can not even remember the last time I ate a Hostess anything and I never bought their bread, now I am 63 and I grew up on wonder bread makes you strong in something like 12 ways but when the truth in advertising laws were passed you no longer heard about how wonderful wonder bread was for you.
There you go, Liz. You just pointed out how the government has strangled and killed businesses with their unwarranted stringent rules and regulations. It is absolutely unfair that the government of a supposedly free country would crack down on business with stupid rules about lying in advertisements or distributing poisoned products. If Romney/Ryan had been elected with a Republican Congress we would soon have had boom times for businesses not having to worry about distributing hazardous products.
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of the Day! #1

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my leftist freak and useful idiot friends at The Memo!
“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” — Charles de Montesquieu
Would you please just go the way of the Twinkie
Gee, Obozo, are you sure the banner did not original show “Romney” and you changed it to “Obama”. That sure does look like Romney with his strange spray on tan. It also rather accurately depicts the Romney/Ryan plan to take money from those earning less than $300K (That family certainly appears to be lower middle class) and redistribute it to those deserve the money (multimillionaires and big business).
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of the Day! #2
“The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.” – Charles de Montesquieu
Well, Obozo, at least this cartoon is honest and depicts the various forms of turkey that Bush screwed up and is serving to Obama. (I am puzzled that a dyed-in-the-wool conservative such as yourself would post a liberal cartoon)
And now…. the REAL Cartoon of the Day! #3
“Society is endangered not by the great profligacy of a few, but by the laxity of morals amongst all.” ― Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America
