Yeah, it's as if the snowball effect has finally hit.....our circle is getting tighter as we near the drain. I hate that too.

This is just one of many more to come.

They also baked other bread products, so the downfall can't be totally pointed at the health enforcement thugs.


Seems like stupidity is contagious and even seeing the doctor will not make sense. Alberta doctors are paid 29% more than the national average, and now have their panties in a wad since a generous agreement they turned down was "imposed" on them.

You wanna here a couple of the asinine things that the unions are responsible for at Hostess?

- They only allowed Twinkies to be on a truck, not any combination of their delicious treats.
- One person at the store where they delivered the treats, unloads the truck, and another person is responsible for stocking the shelves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

No wonder why they couldn't keep up! Had they just gone through a bankruptcy and gotten rid of the union, they'd still be employing those 18k+ morons that wanted the unions


2006 F350 SOLD
* KMC XD Monsters wrapped in Hankook ATM's
* 08 style mirrors
* 4" TB exhaust
* SCT X2 with Gearhead, PHP and ID tunes
* Edge Insight CTS
*Full Bulletproof Diesel kit with remote oil cooler
* Blue FPR spring
* 6.4 Banjos
* Repaired FICM by BPD
* Dfuser coolant filter
* Stage1 MTW turbo



New truck has a Cummins and a handshaker

The comical thing about that whole deal... they were interviewing the union workers yesterday on the news... every one of them that they interviewed considered this a huge victory.. I thought to my self, victory for what.. you traded lower wages for no wages, they proved nothing other than they are a bunch of idiots.

.. and yet all the other unions are bashing the hell out of Hostess for shutting down. I think its great that a company finally stood up and showed em they weren't playing. I have a feeling we will be seeing more and more company's shutting down due to union strikes in the near future. Never understood the mentality of "lets stop working so they give us more money/don't cut our pay"

And yet they were still holding up their Obama signs as they were getting layed off. "Yes we got fired"! "That'll show them"!

That says a lot about the intellectual competency of the delivery driver doesn't it?

I agree, how can a group of employees hold a corporation and it's customers hostage?

Unions run companies into the ground and force jobs overseas, period. I get a kick out of union advocates preaching that unions are the only thing keeping jobs in this country.
