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.

Perhaps you can explain why the wealthy were doing just fine during the Clinton era and before, when taxes were higher.
Bush cut taxes and crashed the economy, without producing 1/10th of th ejobs created by Clinton and higher taxes.
If the tax cuts were so good for the economy, why did we have the biggest financial crash since the Great Depression??
You're a poor racist cracka who is lied to and led by the likes of O'Reilly.
So if the MSM is so wrong, why did they call the election correctly??
If FAUX is so right, why did they get it completely wrong??
The evidence is there, for those who look at it without their right wingnut glasses on.
You're just a sore loser.
Obama won. Get over it!!
You've got ODD.
(Obama Derangement Disorder)
It's quite common among Rmoney supporters. The cure is a self-inflicted gunshot.
Take some deep breaths and block out everything in your mind.

Well, actually, you've already done the latter.

Yeah these Union Bosses are dining a winning while these unemployed workers are scrambling to find Work…Oops they can’t its Obama’s Economy!! Now that’s taken one for the Team!!!
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.

STOP THE PRESSES...or at least send the Alert notice across the bottom crawl,'cause this is like really hard breaking news: Teenagers complain about school cafeteria food.(Bet they think all the lunch ladies are hotties?)

Also, could you tell flack that it's "toeing" the line, not "towing." As he seems incapable of remembering the distinction, I wouldn't call him for help if I were broken down even at Wal-Mart.

calling it baked goods is really stretching credibility
Read the labels on other baked goods like Little Debby and store made brands. All are made with hydrogenated oils and chemicals I can't even pronounce, not to mention the high salt content...yuk. If only people would care enough to demand better quality or just stop buying that crap. Time to go back and make our own.

See, that's an oxymoron. You can't be rational and also dumb in the midst of an emotional breakdown at the same time.

What would you suggest for capping the release of volcanic ash?
I get it, Volcanoes spew ash every now & then so lets pump more poison in the atmosphere.

Emissions from coal fired generation plants kill thousands of people every year & sicken tens of thousands.

But hey volcanoes spew ash & why should we give a f*ck? Right wing thinking at work?

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. Think it's time for you to make good on your promise,,,take your purse and go home. Come back when your fever breaks and reality sets in, if that's possible. Your party went down in flames thanks to nutjobs such as yourself. Fox has made a blithering idiot out of you. Keep watching, they depend on tools like you!!

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.
