A call for nationalizing of the Twinkie. Brilliant! The Twinkie is too big to fail.

We need government to take over this industry because it is vital to the on-going success of the United States of America. Just like Obama did for the banking, housing, health insurance, medical, and auto industries.

We need Twinkies subsidized. That will solve the problem. Tax payer subsidies and government regulations requiring everyone to buy Twinkies - but not eat them.

Yep, that government edu-ma-kay-shun sure is paying big dividends.

Petition wants Obama to save Twinkies

By BYRON TAU

A new White House petition wants President Obama to nationalize the "Twinkie industry," saving the popular junk food from possible extinction.

"We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately Nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center," a petition on the White House "We the People" website requests.


Hostess Brands Inc.— maker of the Twinkie, the Ding Dong and Wonder Bread — is preparing to shutter operations amid a labor strike and rising costs. Unionized workers rejected a major pay and benefit cut, sparking the latest strike.

Labor leaders say the standoff represents "Bain-style" vulture capitalism — a reference to former GOP nominee Mitt Romney's private equity firm.

"What’s happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of what’s wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor. Crony capitalism and consistently poor management drove Hostess into the ground, but its workers are paying the price," AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said in a Friday statement.

A full shutdown of the company could result in as many as 18,000 job losses – though it's possible a buyer could be found for some of its dozens of brands.

The White House petition was posted Friday. It needs 25,000 signatures to generate an official White House response.

Both you and I know that Hostess is in bankruptcy and that all its assets will be sold, and that the Twinkie, Ho Ho and your favorite Ding Dong brands would be purchased by another baker who would continue to distribute them.

How many more threads about Hostess are you going to post?

You've GOT the be really desperate when the best you can do is to post multiple threads about Twinkies.

18,000 jobs, Bob. Try telling those people what you know. See how far that gets you.

It is fun to watch the silly unionistas blame everyone but the union guy who said he would not go back on the job.

This is the Obama Generation.

Think this Petition was posted by some caring person that wanted to save the Twinkie?
Guess again!
It was posted by the White House in their efforts to save the jobs of the UNION Ex Employee's that drove the company into Bankruptcy!
Sign it if you will, but it is just an effort to Nationalize the Co./Fed. Govt. Bailout in order to save the jobs of the UNION Ex Employee's!
I wouldn't sign it on pure principal of the devious way that the White House is trying to fool those signing!

I think all companies ought to be nationalized and the profits taken to make it so the middle class doesn't have to pay any taxes.

Eric Holder's buddies in Mexico are going to buy the Hostess plant in exchange for a few thousand more guns from Obama and Holder.
