That's because you have no spine, Kneepads.

The cause of Hostess failure can be laid squarely on the management who ran the debt load to over two billion dollars, not on the workers who refused to take a 50 percent pay cut.

What was next? That management would pay in Twinkies instead of cash?

Right, it is all Obama's fault because he was president.

Putting aside Hostess filed bankruptcy under George Bush.

When the cost harm sales and sales slip at least in part due to cost then the business fails. The workers will never have a job that good again. They are now wards of the state. Welcome to obammy nation. They can get in line for their obammystamps.

Over 700,000 losing their jobs because of obammycare, tens of thousands having their hours cut because of obammycare, and now 18,500 without jobs because of the union. It looks like democrats are already working on the next elections.

Hostess was run into the ground by venture capitalists.

Hostess was Bain'd.

How like the tea baggers like Kneepads to blame the failure of board executives on the people who sweep the factory floor.

Yes, of course it must be Obama's fault that the Republican venture capitlists spent two billion dollars that wasn't theirs to spend, who raided the workers' pension fund, who cut the workers' salries in half and expected them to trade for a 25 percent share of a business that was in bankrupcy.

Of course it was Obama's fault because he is president.

PS: Hostess went into bankruptcy under George Bush.

Again the unemployed are on obammys record. He has had a very poor record for four years and it looks like he won't have a good one this four.

And the employees are out on the street when they choose to not take the deal. They could still be employed. But instead they are on the unemployment line and soon to be on welfare. They made their choice. It is clear that few of them will ever have that good a job again.

Love the way the tax increases you loons voted for are going right where they do the most good.........your pockets.
Blue state hypocrites take the most exemptions, weasel out of federal taxes:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788 ...

California taxpayers took the highest itemized deductions on average compared with the 49 other states and District of Columbia, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of 2010 Internal Revenue Service data. That means the 36% of California filers who itemized have the most to lose. They averaged $33,901 in deductions, in part because they claimed the U.S.'s highest average mortgage break,$15,755.

After California, the highest average itemized deductions—all above $28,000—were claimed by taxpayers in New York, the District of Columbia, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland and Massachusetts. All have high state, local and property taxes, which may be deducted from income on federal returns, although other tax provisions already limit some deductions.

let's go over the fiscal cliff, it's time these chiselers started paying their "fair" share.

WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...

allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:

• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.

Collected taxes :$794 billion

The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!

Do let us all know the minute you can find a way around my statement: the monarch and only the monarch has the power to appoint the PM.
The queen is merely a figurehead, no power, you prancing queen.
