If you’re out of practice at applying your ideas to real life, you’re message will hold little weight in the eyes of others. This is something for the GOP to remember if they aim to repair the divorce they’ve had with the working class. As reflected by last week’s exit polls, it’s going to require more than empathy, theory, or dressing up the party line, much to the talking heads’ dismay.

Hostess Brands, the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, said it has sought court permission to go out of business after failing to get wage and benefit cuts from thousands of its striking bakery workers.

Hostess said a national strike by members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union that began last week had crippled its ability to produce and deliver products at several facilities.

The liquidation of the company will mean that most of its 18,500 employees will lose their jobs, Hostess said on Friday.

The 82-year-old company said it took the decision to shut down after determining that not enough employees had returned to work by a deadline on Thursday.......

You know how Ford got through w/out bailouts for FAILouts?

They sucked it up, capped, curbed and budgeted even more, to the point of near starvation (theoretically speaking) and TOUGHED it out.
They did NOT continue on any irresponsible, reckless, unaccountable "spend spend spend what was NOT there" sprees.

REALITY....there's no such thing as NOT having to pay the piper, for that which has been drained.

The difference is that all NRA dues are paid voluntarily instead of by extortion, and are much lower than union dues.
Besides, who believes the published salaries of union leaders?
Who believes what the NRA does? You idiots think they are about guns.

You are almost right, tea bag azzhole.
Corporate America has busted most private sector unions by pushing right to work states.
Right to work states have two things in common; they vote republican are always among the top ten poorest states in the UNION.
Virginia is an exception. Right to work and amongst the wealthiest.

His female Junior Officer staff members claim the daily weightlifter Petreaus looked pretty "hot" running in his jogging shorts with his wet hair all spiked up. After he changed into uniform and combed his hair like Hitler, well, not so much. Paula Broadwell also said he was "quite a specimen" (Translation: He had a big d'k).

Once again your knowledge of "my" world is as lacking as your concept of what constitutes believable characters. In my world all its assets are simply on loan and should be returned to their provider in as good shape as they were when one obtained them. OTOH, there is that red print "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's" imperative.

The Party of Big Business

Most of the GOP base are people that look for employment as a means to providing for a family. They see their economic interests threatened by Republicans who want to expose their retirements to the stock market, who want them to pay for their health-care out of their take home wages, who give massive bailouts to connected corporate interests, while singing about self-reliance to the working man.

Liberalism at it's finest, forcing behavior on the others:
(CNN)– The goal of new USDA rules on school lunches is to make students healthy, but for many, the rules are also making them hungry.
Students have been complaining about the new rules for school lunches all over social media.
In the video above from KXJB, three athletes at Milnor School in North Dakota — Wyatt Mund, Andrew Martinson, and Colin Yagow — take their complaint all the way to first lady Michelle Obama, who championed the new school lunch guidelines. Their music video is titled “First Lady that I Used to Know,” a parody of the Gotye hit song.
Principal Ned Clooten appreciates the intent of the new lunch rules and says that there are a lot of changes that are very good in the school lunch program.
“But the number of calories that we’re providing some high school students just isn’t enough,” says Clooten. He supports the students who made the video.
The athletes hope their voices will be heard and bring about change in their school cafeteria.
Forced behavior wrought by Mrs. Big Butt.
Students should bring their own lunches and boycott the government feeding program.

Funny how Carol always has to go back to 'work' whenever i show up.

41 minutes ago, I answered one of her posts.

She hasn't posted since then.

Coincidence?? I think not.

She can't answer when challenenged on her lies and ignorance, so only observes when I come online.

Because I destroy her bullshit in a way she has no way to come back from.

So, like the chickenshit she is, she keeps her fat fingers off the keyboard until I leave!!

She's lucky I only show up on occasion.

“For the Republicans at the state level to disregard this message is astonishing to me. They are arrogant, they are inebriated with power, and that is exactly what we see going on here.”
