Was that a popular sang when you were young? Are you sure you didn't know that labor unions started after the Dust Bowl, Great Depression, etc., but I'm sure you can't remember why.

<quoted text>Keep going pal, you're getting dumber by the post. The company was going down either way, they could no longer compete in/for the large grocery accounts and were selling their below par products to convenience stores and at their own retail/thrift stores. The thrift stores will be missed as they tended to be located in low income areas.
The actual union members (bakery workers) will be OK as the bakeries will reopen to produce regional and grocery brands. The non union store employees and delivery/sales personnel are fkd however.
It was probably due to the super low prices they were forced to sell their product at Walmart. But that's just speculation on my part.

Around here, there are people who take this out of date food from groceries & hold weekly food auctions. I think they have contracts with these stores.

That's not hysterical? More hyperbolic rightwing mumbo jumbo. Lmao, you prove repeatedly what extremes you will go to in order to make yourself appear right.

The bakery business is in distress almost everywhere.
The only worthwhile Hostess assets are the brand names.
The biggest Hostess liabilities are the employee contracts and pension plans.
The outcome seems obvious.
The company got so big that it couldn't get small again. Iirc, over time four companies combined to make Hostess Brands. There are buyers lining up for most of the bakeries.

Regional and grocery brands have changed that industry much for the better__our local Hostess div, Merita closes tonight at midnight, the bakery workers aren't crying__they knew it was coming one way or the other.

Let's explore history a little bit more.

Stalin preached the crisis of capitalism would raise the consciousness of the working class to revolt.

Hitler's message to the worker was,“above all, the trade unions are necessary as foundation stones of the future economic parliament or chambers of estates”(Mein Kampf). He was so totally aligned with labor that he used terms like,“social justice” and “national community” to confirm their importance.

In Mein Kampf, Hitler goes into great detail about how National Socialism must realign all aspects of society to the goals of trade unions to create an equality of outcome. And if those aspects of society are not willing, they will be taken over (co-opted).

Along with universal healthcare, expanded animal welfare laws, support of healthy, organic foods and vegetarianism, a minimum wage, progressive taxation, and tight gun control — policies all shared by progressives from Roosevelt to Clinton to Obama, it is impossible for the left to separate themselves from Hitler. So they try a little “I’m rubber you’re glue” on the right. But it just doesn’t stick when you take a closer look.

Those who don't play the game aren't allowed to criticize those who do. It's a rule...somewhere.
The country voted against the GOP because for several reasons. We didn't have the right messenger who played it safe instead of painting a clear and dangerous picture of another four years, who passed up a golden opportunity in the last debate to ask the president point black about what he knew about Benghazi, and the media perpetrated the invisible war on women digging up two obscure republicans who put their foot in their mouths.
However if the election had been held right before Hurricane Sandy, the outcome might have been very different.
Obama makes a mistake if he thinks he won because of his policies. He won because Romney dropped the ball, because Romney is a Mormon and because his smear campaign worked. He also won because of a well-organized and methodical plan to get his base to the voting booths.
The country is still very much divided...more so now...and Obama will wish he hadn't won a second term if he succeeds in implementing his policies and continue to ignore and dismiss half of the country again another four years.
Ya'll do nothing but make excuses. Yes every reason you named was part of the reason romney lost, but the main reason was & is romney wasn't presidential material. Obama campaigned to america. Romney campaigned to 53% & you say this country is divided. Imagine if romney made it in office! Those that are divided now was against Obama the 1st time he ran, not even giving him a chance. They call him the food stamp president. Not thinking that the country was in a recession, close to a depression & had he not extended food stamps, unemployment benefits ect...this country would've been the 3rd world country ya'll fear mongers live in fear of. City by city eating in chow lines & soup kitchens. Thats fine by ya'll that probably well off enough to avoid the misery, but you people dont understand the butterfly effect. When or if the ghetto gets that low to the point the hood can't feed the hood, guess who will come a knocking at your front doors in the day & breaking in your backdoor by night. Obama's moves are very thoughtful & calculated. Another reason ya'll loss the election was you simply underestimated the change in the demographics of some of americas major cities & states, big time! I told ogee people on here, no poll can tell you who will likely vote & vice versa. 2008 we voted for change & we got it. 2012 was proof that it wasn't a fluke. My best advise is do what the winners would've done if we loss, don't obstruct the progress. Ride with it. You don't have to like it, but this is a democracy & the majority have spoken. Don't be sore losers. True harder next time!

You didn't see the big vote on whether God was in or out of your party at the Democratic Convention?

Had to vote 3 times. Most people think the "no's" had it even though Obama made it clear behind the scenes the "yes's" were to win since he had to say God bless America at the end of his speech.

I can see that happening. Most dates on food is 30 days from packaging. I didn't know this till I was watching a show on the food channel. Canned food is different. Eggs are good for up to sixty days after the date if keep in a cool place.

How to tell if an egg is good. Fill a bowl with cold water. Place the egg in. If it sinks to the bottom it is good. If it sinks but one end floats up it needs to be used soon. If it floats throw it away.

Check out the ingredients in a chik fil a

I can just imagine. I don't buy fast-food; and I'm a label Nazi. I read everything. If I'm not sure what an ingredient is, I won't buy it. I generally make everything from scratch, except for crackers. I buy only organic, but you have to be careful because some products are not genuinely organic or made with wholesome ingredients. Corn syrup is a problem as well. Palm oil is another ingredient in many supermarket items, unless it says non-hydrogenated, don't buy it. Manufacturers know that many people are becoming savvy about additives so they are creating new labels in an effort to confuse and deceive us. It's so convenient to buy these products but it's wise not to.

DAGNE TAGGART LOUNGED BY THE POOL AT GALT'S GULCH AND LOOKED AT THE RUINS OF HER LIFE. FOR THE LAST TWENTY YEARS SHE'D SURVIVED ON TWINKIES, PIZZA, AND SEAGRAM'S AND SHE WEIGHED A GOOD 340 MAYBE 350 IF ONE WAS BEING HONEST.

SHE STILL CLUNG TO THE VANITY THAT SHE COULD CONTROL IT, LOSE IT, BUT IN HER HEART SHE KNEW IT WAS A LOSING BATTLE, SHE COULD ALMOST HEAR CHUNKS OF CHOLESTEROL BUMPING THROUGH HER VEINS.

THE ONE THING SHE'D NEVER LOST WAS HER LOVE OF THE WATER. SWIMMING WAS THE ONE THING THAT KEPT HER FROM LOSING HER MIND. SO EVERY DAY AT ABOUT THIS TIME SHE'D HAVE LUIS THE POOL BOY ROLL HER OVER AND OVER UNTIL SHE FINALLY FELL IN THE WATER. THEN LUIS WOULD TIE A ROCK TO HER ASS TO KEEP HER UPRIGHT AND THEN SHE WAS FREE! TRULY FREE!

IT COULD TAKE HER FOUR HOURS TO DO A SINGLE LAP BUT THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO DO HERE EXCEPT EAT SO SHE WAS CONTENT.

LUIS WAS THE ONLY SERVANT STILL SERVING IN THE GULCH AND HADN'T JOINED THE BIG SLAVE REVOLT BACK IN THE SPRING. NONETHELESS AS HE ROLLED THE ENORMOUS "WOMAN" TOWARD THE WATER HE THOUGHT ABOUT TYING THE ROCK TO HER NECK AND JUST SAYING THE HELL WITH IT.
