The left shoots themselves in the foot again, harming the job situation for everyone:
Twinkies are back, but most jobs are not
Twinkies are back in stores. But most of the jobs of the people that make them won't be returning any time soon.
There were 18,500 people working for Hostess Brands when the company went bankrupt in November, making Twinkies, Wonder Bread and a variety of other brands.
But only about 20% to 25% of those jobs will end up returning when all the brands are up and running again, according to estimates by Natalie Everett, a bread and snack industry analyst with IBISWorld.
Typically, companies that buy iconic brands like those produced by Hostess invest in equipment and machinery to replace laborers -- which is why the jobs aren't coming back, Everett said.
Hostess had two main unions when it went under: About 6,600 employees were members of a bakers' union and worked at 33 bakeries nationwide, and 7,500 were drivers who belonged to the Teamsters union

Slurp up trhe libuhrulTIC fed BULLcrap DUHMMY.
But here's some of the FACTS.
George was born October 5, 1983 in Manassas, Virginia. He was born in Prince William Hospital. This is the same hospital where his brother was born three years earlier and where his sister would be born three years later.
I was in the US Army for approximately 21 years. During much of my later service, I was assigned to the Office of the Secretary of Defense as an Executive Support Supervisor. As an enlisted man, and living in a high cost area, I routinely worked a second job. For this reason, many of the duties associated with raising our children were the responsibility of my wonderful wife, Gladys. Cristina, my thoughtful and loving mother-in-law, has been living with us since before our first child was born. She also played a very significant role in raising our three children.
George’s mother, Gladys, was born in Lima, Peru. After graduating from college, she became a physical education teacher. However, during a trip to visit her brother, a soldier stationed in the Military District of Washington, we were introduced. Immediately, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of his life with this beautiful, intelligent young lady. Gladys was not at all that convinced about me. However, on December 20, 1975 we were married in a traditional, Catholic wedding.
Our first few years were somewhat of a struggle. However, we were eventually able to purchase a home in Prince William County, Virginia and start our family.
In 1978 Gladys started working for the Circuit Court of Prince William County. She also became very well known in the Hispanic community and a very active member of All Saints Catholic Church. Gladys was also a dedicated member of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, helping those in need throughout the community. Being both bilingual and very well known in the community, Gladys was routinely sought out for her advice and assistance by members of the rapidly growing Spanish-speaking community.
As in NON JEWISH, Latino decent.

If Trayvon Martin had not started a fight, drawn first blood, had been friendly, had gone home, we wouldn't even be having this conversation and he would be alive....
Trayvon was not justified in his response of force and the evidence and jury says so...
It's the culture...

the answer is two part: single mothers and liberal judges

Oh hell-affirmative action doesn't care if LONG TIME WORKING CLASS people have to live on CREDIT TO EAT.
Pieces of affirmative chit.

Zimmerman should have his own civil lawsuit and civil rights investigation--starting w/Obama and Sharpton.
#944714 Jul 15, 2013
Your one of the dumb that believe that old bible adage," if someone smacks you, turn the other cheek" because you've never been smacked. Well, black people have been smacked enough times to run out of cheeks on our face & asses! Civil rights! Trayvon's was violated when he was profiled, targeted, & executed for fitting Zimmerman's description of a threat. Just so happens that, most of Zimmerman'semergency calls were about young black males but, it wasn't about race, right?

We have had the great welfare/social experiment going on since FDR and Democrats controlled Congress from WWII up until Bill Clinton's first mid-term elections.
The governor of Louisiana was a Democrat when Katrina struck.
She said "They have M16s and are locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill and I expect they will," Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco said.
Your Democrats sure took care of you people, didn't they?

If he'd been arrested immediately on some charge, even a minor one the case would never had made the national news. Instead, Zimmerman was treated as a friend of law enforcement and sent home after a cursory interview hours before the body was identified.
Martin's parents have already settled out of court with the HOA's insurer for a rumored figure of just under $1 mil.
It will be difficult for Martin's family to sue Zimmerman in Florida Civil Court and it's doubtful that the DOJ will pursue civil rights violations___just interesting TV talk.
Zimmerman's wife still faces a perjury charge for lying about their finances.
#944718 Jul 15, 2013
Yeah-the DOJ OUGHT to be fousing on Libyan mujuhadeen and Chechnen TERRORISTS and tamping DOWN ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
At this point it would serve the IDIOTS right to have rep for the RACE BAITED CIVIL RIGHTS abuse against Zimmerman and his family however!

Even though it's rather obvious you are a loser NJ raider, Jail house wife and/or lap dancer bitch...
And the dumb Negro wonders why no one cares his behavior is the issue, nothing more.
The Government Cheese and Non Sentient Welfare Crowd... The Blind Lead...
It's the culture...

Yea & somewhere in Florida, a mother is doing 20yrs for firing a weapon, a warning shot, in self defense to stop the advances of her exhusband, of whom she had a restraining order against. The shot didn't even hit anyone. Talk about justice!

By not convening a Grand Jury, which is standard procedure in cases like Zimmerman's the DA assumed the job of judge & jury.
She submitted an affidavit that was, if not perjurious, completely misleading. She violated all kinds of rules of the profession, and her conduct bordered on criminal conduct. She, by the way, has a horrible reputation in Florida. She's known for overcharging, she's known for being highly political. And in this case, of course she overcharged. Halfway through the trial she realized she wasn't going to get a second degree murder verdict, so she asked for a compromised verdict, for manslaughter. And then, she went even further and said that she was going to charge him with child abuse and felony murder. That was such a stretch that it goes beyond anything professionally responsible. She was among the most irresponsible prosecutors I've seen in 50 years of litigating cases, and believe me, I've seen good prosecutors, bad prosecutors, but rarely have I seen one as bad as this prosecutor,[Angela] Cory

When you direct something my way, talk commonsense because, I'm not democrat or republican. Blanco, Bush, & Nagin all botched Katrina so stop trying to put it off on one party!

Did your hate filled, ignorant brain ever consider it might be because it "WAS" black males who were committing the crimes, race baiter?
It wasn't just Zommerman, "workers" also reported it was "black" men, you clown.
On February 6, "workers" witnessed two young black men lingering in the yard of a Twin Lakes resident around the same time her home was burglarized. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. The next day police discovered the stolen laptop in the backpack of a young black man, which led to his arrest. Zimmerman identified this young man as the same person he had spotted peering into windows on February 2.
