Barack Obama, our next President

It is a very diverse area. A lot of people have no idea just big of a place it is.

Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of iconic treats such as Twinkies and traditional pantry staple Wonder Bread, said Friday it is shuttering its plants and will seek to liquidate the 82-year-old business.

The company, which filed for Chapter 11 in January, said it has requested bankruptcy-court authorization to close the business and sell its assets.

A victim of changing consumer tastes, high commodity costs and, most importantly, strained labor relations, Hostess ultimately was brought to its knees by a national strike orchestrated by its second-largest union.

The work stoppage, launched Nov. 9 by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union to protest a fresh labor contract, affected about two-thirds of Hostess's 36 plants.

Bankruptcy in January, strike in November. Somehow directly related?

Funny? Are you one of the 158,000,000 Americans who will see a $3,500 tax increase? Four years, 5 trillion dollar deficit, is that funny? You really are up Obama's a**, aren't you.

Yeah, if you thought Fox News was going to calm the fuck down even for a little while — man, did you back the wrong horse. What’s interesting, though, is that for Ailes and Fox News, the decision to continue throwing gasoline on the fires of white fury is strictly a business one.

There was, again, a lot of hemming and hawing last week about how conservative media did such a disservice to its audience by reinforcing the epistemic information bubble most of it lives in in the lead-up to the election. But there’s money in blowing that bubble up once again, this time potentially even bigger and stronger, and that’s got to be the primary consideration. Fox News has never been more powerful than when it’s the blaring voice of opposition. The last four years have been a boon to it and I doubt the next four will be any different.

The problem for Republicans seeking reelection or higher office in the near future is that Fox News has a much larger audience and wields much greater power over the conversation than any single conservative politician. And if anyone on the right side of the aisle is going to issue a memo on how to cover a situation, it’ll be Fox delivering the orders.

It only took one week for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to be demoted from future king of the GOP to someone you don’t want to be caught associating with because he had the audacity to cooperate with the Obama administration following one of the worst disasters New Jersey has ever seen.

If Fox News continues to select candidates for the Republican party, the party will never change. There’s too much money to be made in maintaining the status quo.

You are just as pathetic as "brown eyes". I too have criticized Michelle Obama, but I do so based on actual policy issues and her outragious spending while the country is in the economic disaster it is in, along with the amount of millions of unemployed American's.

To just criticize on appearance like you are doing Michelle Obama or make fun of someone that if she was in the opposite party she would be hailed as an example of what a strong, intelligent, wonderful parent and spokesperson she is as is the case with Ann Romney is a perfect example of true shallow moron you are.

The problem is, Republicans don't accept FACTS. Evolution? Climate Change? Obama American? Pregnancies occur as a result of rape? According to the Republicans, the answer to these questions is NO.
The good news is, as long as they are determined to dispute facts, they will be forever known as, according to Bobby Jindal, "the stupid party". And "the stupid party" has no future in American politics. So you just keep going with your asinine excuses for what your party has become....deny, deny, deny. Your skewed polls, your un-ending conspiracy theories, your constant denial of facts and your twisted interpretation of policy...the "fiscal" conservative bullshit is an absolute joke. Get serious Carol.
If one counts 2000 as stolen elections then the GOP record since 1992 is just dismal. Even without that they have lost the popular vote 5 out of the last 6 presidential elections and barely squeaked by the one time they "won."
So just maybe the suppressed Democratic majority has now emerged. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Liberals get hysterical thinking evolution is a scientific fact instead of a theory and that climate change is something new to this century. One of Obama's publishers wrote in his bio that he was born in Kenya.

These are facts.

The specter of liquidation has loomed large since the bankruptcy case, Hostess's second in recent years, kicked off in January. From the start, the company has warned that labor cuts were its only chance to survive and said the only other possible outcome was a full shutdown of the business. Both Hostess and its largest union, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, have long agreed a widespread strike would spell the end of the company.

But Hostess has threatened liquidation before in the case—and during its last stint in Chapter 11—and not followed through. Earlier this year, it said a vote against its last, best, final offer by either of its two largest unions would prompt an immediate liquidation. But when the bakers union gave Hostess just that trigger, Hostess instead decided to take its case back to the court.

President Obama is on the side of the American people; you are on the side of the corporation. The people voted against the corporations; which was quite a feat considering the millions being pumped into the campaign. The people went out and voted big, that's the only way to make sure that the corporate machine can't steal the election.
You vote against your own best interests. It's incredible.

I had truly hoped that the President would have pushed for the public option, open up Medicare for all rather than this complicated bill that was a compromise.
I hope that eventually it will become universal healthcare for all paid through taxation and not attached to employment. It's the simplest and fairest way.
Please show exactly where you get your facts that this complicated fubar of a bill was anything close to being "compromised".

Besides, it's not healthy to act like you have cornered the market on things that remain a mystery and will always be so in our limited and finite understanding of the universe in the name of politics.

Jindal is entitled to his opinion. Much of what Romney said is true just by the numbers - who voted for Obama and why.

But he is right in that conservatives need to broaden their message to these same people. I believe it will happen on its own after a few more years.

A Supreme Win for Women: The Crucial Benefits of Obamacare
by Jessica Arons Jun 28, 2012 7:00 PM EDT

Thanks to Obamacare, women can’t be charged 150 percent more than men for insurance, can’t be penalized for having had a C-section—and can count birth control as preventive care.

“Preexisting conditions” can include having had breast cancer or a C-section, or having been a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault.

Mothers will also have peace of mind knowing that their children will be covered. Insurers can no longer deny coverage to the 17 million children with preexisting conditions. And Obamacare requires insurance companies to allow young adults to stay on their parents' health-insurance plans until their 26th birthday. Already, 6.6 million people have gotten insurance under this provision.


In short, Obamacare will increase health-insurance coverage for women, lower their health-care costs—and end the worst insurance-industry abuses against them.

(This is more bad news for Carol, who can't find anything good about Obamacares)
