Strike deals final blow to Hostess

Hostess Brands, the maker of the spongy snack with a mysterious cream filling, said Friday it would shutter its operations after years of struggling with management turmoil, rising labor costs, intensifying competition and America's move toward eating healthier snacks even as its pantry of sugary dessert cakes seemed suspended in time.

Another decades old, Union American business falls. Those unions sure do strengthen and support American businesses. Congratulations Hostess employees on a job well done.

Those savage greedy management of hostess should be hung. Corporate unionism from companies uniting together and fixing prices for maximum profit has got to stop. GOP laws providing for maximum corporate and millionaire profit ahead of needs of people is tyranny. Who owns budwieser? Where is lionel trains? Where is schwinn bicycles? Why all our million postal delivery vehicle smade in germany and no longer american jeeps? Why is our main battle tank abrams A1 no longer made in Detroit but now made in Eygpt of all places? These rich basturds need a lesson to be taught.

In many states seniors don't have to pay property taxes Michigan is losing a population because there are NO breaks here for anyone young or old !

Lansing political arena is the most corrupt in our American union....

There are other places for sure. Florida has become quite crime ridden now and this is not senior friendly.
You can't live on Social Security anyway. You always need a side gig.

I have senior relatives in the south who Jane a house on forty acres and seniors pay no property tax there and that's all I need to know to understand this state is a rip off...

If you have a connection, that can be a good way to go.
I never "Janed" a house before. That's a new concept to me.
Maybe it's a senior moment type of thing.

There was a UFO sighting over Flint a few days ago.

The Hostess deal is now back in arbitration. With all the quick sales they just made, we could be in for a happy ending.

I stand to lose because there is a Hostess outlet store here. You can buy an entire shopping cart of outdated products for $6. People load up their truck and take it down to Hines Park to feed the geese under the "Please Do Not Feed the Geese" sign. We live in a crazy world. The Wayne County Sheriff patrols on horseback so watch where you step. Green is for goose poop, brown is for horse manure.
