Hostess Snacks go out of date? But I thought they lasted 100 years.

<quoted text> yes when I was a kid I worked in the onion fields,along with any other jobs I could do to earn some money. And yes I bought a winchester 30 30 that year.

My parents-in-law, Lord love 'em, were born fiercely into the Dust Bowl. Both were 'accidents' and both were LOVED, and both were transplanted to California as 'Okies' in the 1950's.

Both picked onions, peaches, tomatoes, pecans, almonds, watermelons, and whatever the * else there was to pick. Both ate beans & taters 6 days a week, and twice on Sunday. Both were glad to get it. Both of them collaborated on the existence of my husband and his siblings, both of whom were my best friends.

When I graduated from Daniel Webster High School, I did so with my future sister in law doing the driving, although she never got her GED.

I digress - my point was, Americans share a lot, and disagree on everything.

If your Republicans confirmed Condi, they should confirm Susan. That is unless they are petty, party first twits.

"...without the Union, he wouldn't have received the wages he deserved." is the lie and fallacy of unionism. "deserved"?
What does "deserved" mean in your book? He's a nice guy so he deserves to get paid more? If there was only one electrician in America, he/she could demand a million dollars per hour. If there were 20 million electricians, their wages would be set lower by the market. Artificially propping up income or prices is dead wrong because it skews and distorts the natural flow between supply and demand with bad consequences.
If I bake Twinkies for a living should I "deserve" to make $150, 000 per year? A quarter million?$30 grand? Who should decide what is "deserved" and what is not? It used to be that markets made that determination. Now, Congressional Leftists have determined to set wages. Because it buys them votes.
Professional athletes sign multi-million dollar multi-year contracts because the market allows for it. But then they organize into unions to demand even more. As long as the stupid fans are willing to pay for those artificial strong-arm marketplace tactics in their beer prices, parking and ticket prices... then so be it. A Fool and his money....
When corporations corner a market it's called an illegal Monopoly. When they collude to fix prices, it's called illegal price-fixing. When Unions corner markets through closed-shop practices or when they engage in price-fixing through standardized wage levels or other tactics like teachers' precious Tenure, it is NOT called illegal anything.
Inside the construction and manufacturing industries, Skilled Trades Apprenticeships are often handed out through nepotism, cronyism and unwarranted racial quotas, all crooked distortions of labor markets. So when I hear someone speak about how someone in a union gets the wages they "deserve", I smell more burnt Twinkies in the Devil's own kitchen of stupidity.

They drive the stuff to the shelter and open the truck. If the shelter employees go in and get it, the supplier is off the hook.

I'd say the people made a wise choice, after all Europe now is officially in recession, 23 countries the labor force is on strike. Which leaves the US and a handfull of other countries in growth including China. I would love for you well informed world affairs Fox news watchers to tell us how the USA could perform better against that tidal wave of negative growth out there and totally rely on business to generate it. I mean do you think that is what happens in China ? So this is where the distorted reality field comes into play. Low taxes = fix but unfortunately this has been the case for the past 20 yrs what happened ? China manages with a lot higher taxes on private enterprise than the US, so how do you figure that is the cure. In otherwords Tea party logic = total destruction rather than rebuild. Thank God for the smart educated East & West coast voters.
time will tell. But isn't the east coast and west coast home of the largest concentrations of government handouts as well?

They probably give away the snacks but most loaf bread is recycled into dog food or feed for livestock.

The problem with impeaching Obama is the Senate will never vote for it, unless his birth certificate is proven a forgery and it is backed up by college transcripts indicating he was admitted to Columbia as a foreign student. Both of the above items are low probability as of today. Even if he is impeached, the order of succession kicks in-- Joe Bite Me doesn't even know what state he is in. At least the rest of the world likes Obama, at the present time.

<quoted text> 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.
Or throw it at a car with an Obama sticker.

My parents didn't name me Free anything. They called me a Franchise. Each Life is a franchise. It is given to you with the understanding that will you commit to investing in it all that you own. If you don't commit all that you own into your franchise, it will fail and you will, in effect, have never lived.

A return on my investment is all that I ask.
