The union workers had made grand concessions during the previous bankruptcy in exchange for equity, the current bankruptcy is the second since the company was taken over by hedge funds the larger being Silver Point Holdings of Greenwich Conn.

Obviously you don't have a fkn clue.

The company will now be sold off piece and parcel.

Isn't that pathetic? An 82 year old company-now defunct, because of the GREED and IGNORANCE resulting from slacketics of NO apparent work ethics or moral fiber.
The 82 year old purveyor of preservatives, grease, sugar, and pocket-lint, is defunct because intelligent people stopped buying and eating their plastic-wrapped offal a decade ago, and creditors finally washed their hands of it. Good riddance.

Your 'tic' tic is really cute. One too many ding-dongs, or a side effect of the steroids?

Following a meeting at the White House with President Obama, Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that the top congressional leaders "have a plan," and remain confident in reaching a deal on the "fiscal cliff."

"We have the cornerstones of being able to work something out," Reid said.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday Republicans are willing to put revenue "on the table" in order to avoid the fiscal cliff, "provided we fix the real problem, even though most of my members, I think, without exception, believe we're in the dilemma we're in not because we tax too little but because we spend too much."

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.
So much hate from such a small man.

Homer.....

Research by leading social psychologist Roy Baumeister has found that the act of choosing depletes our brain’s ability to exercise self-control. We become less discerning and less disciplined when our brains are tired from having to make a large number of choices. This implies that when we embed ourselves within a context of binding commitments — that is to say, commitments we don’t have to think about honoring — that may free our minds to focus on other things. When we experience everything, or nearly everything, as contingent on choice, it exhausts us mentally, and makes us more undisciplined — and, in turn, makes our lives more chaotic. Chaos, in this sense, breeds chaos.

Has the President spoken up about the crisis in the Middle-East or is he waiting for an investigation before he steps up to address the American People?

You're an unemployed guttersnipe. Why don't you go work for the Hedge Fund that runs Hostess??
I'm sure they'd hire nitwits like you, so long as you're willing to work for Twinkies!!
These bakers decided not to allow these corporate raiders to cut their wages and benefits to indentured slave levels. They'll find jobs, the hedge fund will lose big on their investment!!
That's a good outcome, but way over your hillbilly head!!
Laying off 18,000 is a good outcome? What's wrong with you people?

Carol's a very lonely woman. She's said as much, often.
But she stays on Topix and FAUX, instead of getting out and meeting people.
Her insular behavior makes it easy for her to live in a parallel universe. She doesn't allow reality to intrude on her fantasy life.
Since Nov. 6th, that's becom increasingly apparent.
Most all her fellow nitwits have fled the scene, having realized their ignorance. Not Carol. She doubles down on ignorance.
The racists and secessionists are here, the frightened ones with guns in their avatar and secession in their heads.
Secession is the act of a traitor.
Traitors should be shot. But even the Governors of these traitors have laughed at them, including Rick Perry. So they're not going anywhere but crazy.
So, as in 2008, they're merely venting their rage over a black man winning the Presidency twice over their white mutts!!~
I'm a home hermit but not lonely. Because of my work situation. There's a difference.

But I do get bored easily. That's where topix and you come in handy.

The pamphlet itself was edited by Miriam Goderich who has since responded, saying it was her mistake. She replied in an email to Yahoo News:
You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.
Sigh.
I'm not hysterical and neither are my wingnuts.

Are any of my wingnuts on here hysterical?

Condeleesa Rice went on talk shows & said how Iraq had WMDs. We invaded Iraq. There were no WMDs. Republicans confirm Condi Rice as Sec of State.
Susan Rice said the attacks appeared to be the results of a demonstration against a video that escalated. This has been changed to a planned terrorist attack.. Republicans run screaming through the streets with torches & pitchforks. OMG OMG she can't be Sec of State.
Testimony from the CIA confirms that their talking points changed. That the possible relation with terrorist organizations were scrubbed from their initial memos.
The idea that Republicans didn't give a sh*t that the misinformation Condeleesa Rice provided helped send 4000 soldiers to their death evidently pales in comparison of statements about Benghazi that got no one killed or injured.
Republicans really suck d*ck. How anyone can support this pack of liars & losers is beyond me.
My God, the hypocrisy alone.
See see is the McCain & the sniveling weasel Graham will apologize.

Nobody can help you, Carol. Your ignorance is boundless.
But FDR would give Obama more than a run for his money. GM, AT&T, and most other unions came into being during the Great Depression.
The time when Americans realized the wealthy were ripping them off, and willing to let them live and die in poverty so the wealthy can make greater profits.
Not like today, when idiots like yourself support the rich in their exploiting of labor.
Hard times always bring ann increase in union activity. Don't look now, but even WalMart workers are looking to unionize, tired of being pawns with no rights.
You're too stubbornly blind to see that.
Oh, lighten' up. I can't help it if Hitler loved unions too.
