    I haven't eaten twinkies since I was a kid. I eat cookies, so I'm okay with this.

    I honestly wouldn't be sad if all the businesses whose products or services only really *hurt* people went out of business. Hostess shit is preserved chemical sugar. It's disgusting and we're better off not being able to eat it :P I wouldn't mind if fast food joints were next.

    The employees went on strike, because the company tried to make them sign new contracts that slashed their salaries and benefits. The company was trying to put their bad spending habits and excessive management salaries on the labor force. Thus, the company is shutting down.

    right?...lol. I guess I simply assumed everyone knew what everyone knew. The owners told the union if they keep up with the strike, the company would be forced into bancruptcy. The union, in their infinite wisdom, simply ignored reality. So they closed it down. Now we have more unemployed americans which I hate to see. Merry Christmas. Unions are an out-moded, outdated, archaic, criminal enterprise that needs to die off quickly. I feel bad for the poor sob's that simply wanted to work.

    You want to bitch about lavish spending? You need to get one thing straight that you simply do not understand...these are PRIVATE corportaions, they can spend THEIR money anyway god damn way they choose. It is the stockholder or the owner that swings the hammer. Now, if you are serious about pissing money down rat holes of continued failure and abuse, look no farther than the federal government. A government that exists for one reason...to spend your money. There has never been an agency run efficiently, there has never been a program run effectively...yet you people allowed a fucking corrupt government take control of approx 20% of the economy with this Obamacare bullshit. Staggeringly and mind-numbingly stupid.
    No shit, they can spend their money how they want. They can waste it til there's nothing left if they want. But when they go out of business due to awful spending habits, they can't fool me into thinking its the union's fault. "Shit, we fucked up with our spending. Better slash our employees' salaries and benefits! Oh, they won't allow us to do that? Well, then let's make it look like it was their fault we went under."

    You must really hate Obama then. Cause he has hammered deficit spending for the past 4 years and spent more money faster than any president in history. Still, the economy is for shit, gas doubled, dollar very weak, housing sucks. But you complain about private companies spending their money and pass on pissing away public funds. Private companies can do and spend how they see fit. Maybe they made errors. How much did it cost you? ZERO. It's a very bad situation. They owe you no explanation unless you are an investor. Maybe they were paying too high of wages. They offered a contract, it was declined, they closed. Now they are unemployed. Obviously the union members feel they were worth more, maybe they were. Based on what standard? They must have had options to decline the contract, go take the other options.
