Yepper the forum's obamaroids were lied to about Libya 9/11 just like the rest of America yet their heads are stuck up their butts. Apparently the obamaroids must have been dung beetles in their past lives because they just cannot prevent themselves from wallowing around in b. h. obama's marxist poop. Even funnyman dave letterman said b. h. obama lied about Mitt Romney over the GM bailout...And even the jokester jon stewart had raised eyebrows during his talk with b. h. obama about Libya 9/11. The obamaroids know Libya 9/11 is a cover-up but their nature is that of useful idiots...not men.

Except for the hard left Obamatons, most people can find a fault with all the problems that Obama has created, IMO.

HOW DARE THEY NOT TAKE YET ANOTHER PAY CUT DEMANDED by the CEO who raised his pay to $2.2 million dollars! who increased the board salaries 300 percent!

WE ALL HAVE TO TIGHTEN OUR BELTS!

And it was definitely the union's fault that the CEO spent a billion dollars that wasn't there to spend, because he asked the union for approval... telepathically... and no one objected.

Why didn't Lord Obama step in and throw a few hundred million at the company?

Did the baker's union forget to donate to his campaign?

hey you hypocrite loser
remember...
you have to have union workers make them
you low life scab hypocrite
Looks like lazy con-nie would rather pay union workers to make them (like they pay everyone to do their dirty work) instead of making them at home. More con exceptionalism. Eh, ding dong?

They should have fired the bakers and trained the custodians.

Lets face it anyone could do what they were doing anyway, itís all computer controlled. I bet they haven't touched a rolling pin in years.

The crux of the matter is the unions are as responsible for jobs leaving the country as any CEO!

They deserve what they got. The problem is all the others they took down with their greed.

<quoted text>they are supposed to deliver packages, that is their job. Our regular guy has done so with no problems here year after year. He is old and goes off on long term injuries and then we get several new guys, and now we have one who refuses to walk up stairs and refuses to come to people's doors, so he can't do the job, so he just dumps all the packages off at the office here but residents do not get a notice about it so they don't know there is a package in the office for them. They're supposed to deliver the packages, that's their job.
I have a mail carrier who put in three mail forwards on me, who throws my outgoing mail away, UPS guys who no longer deliver packages, same with Fed Express and even a Safeway delivery guy I got fired yesterday for ripping me off and for doing so many bad things. This is how it is here, has nothing to do with me. I love it how all these young kids are dumb as fence posts and lazy and refuse to do their jobs and then people want to pretend that older people who are the customers are somehow to blame for it. I had one young girl who was so dumb that she worked in the U.S. Bank fraud department and she told me that Norton Security is NOT Internet security. She had no clue but works in the fraud dept. We have a guy at Grocery Outlet who uses a scanner in the cash register and steals people's ATM numbers and credit card numbers and sells them and you go to use your card and it is overdrawn. Watch out. People today have no clue what they are doing, they commit all kinds of crimes and no one does one thing about any of it. And the people at the banks are young kids who are underpaid too and they don't know one thing about anything.
I helped this old guy here apply for food stamps and the young people working in the offices were sooooo dumb he had to apply three times, contact the Southern Poverty Law Center and tell the employees what his deductions were with the information he got from the SPLC before he got the food stamps. Young people are dumber and dumber and they lie and commit crimes and refuse to do their jobs, and most of the time they don't know what they are doing.
So never mind blaming older people for this stuff. The U.S. has gone third world.
Did I say anything about blaming older people for this stuff, I simply made a comment in reply to your remark about UPS and said that I don't have that problem with them here and then you just get all over me like I'm putting the blame on old people when I never even said anything like that!

Did the bakers union make any of these board decisions or was it the board?
Doesn't matter. The die was cast. The employees work for the management. If the Union had taken the deal, they'd still have jobs.

They'd apparently figured getting unemployment at 50 percent was better. So they got what they wanted.

No sympathy from me.
Yeah

Isn't it great? Management got a bigger paycheck with the company shutting down in the end.

I wonder if the investors are related to Romney?
