Good-Bye to Twinkies and 18,000 Jobs: A Win-Win-Win for the Left

| Comments (5)

We have all heard by now of the death of the Twinkie — and the HoHo and the Ding Dong and all those beloved Hostess treats — thanks to a union’s demands that would make yet another American company incapable of surviving.  Today it was made official.  A judge had ordered the various parties back to the bargaining table, but to no avail.  So say good-bye to the Twinkie and 18,000 American jobs that have for generations made it a part of American fabric and culture.

In the wake of this event, unions nationwide can declare victory by showing us all who is really the boss here.  Unions have emerged victorious, refusing to budge, refusing to bow to management demands, well worth the thousands of jobs lost.  Their victory has in turn emboldened countless other unions nationwide that have promised to disrupt Thanksgiving holiday travel and various and sudry Black Friday shopping sprees coast to coast.  In other words, the unions will do all in their power to increase consumer prices and decrease company profits.

TodayBarack Obama may claim victory, as well, as 18,000 more people are added to the government dole.  There is nothing more precious to this president than ensuring that more and more Americans find themselves dependent on the government, and, best yet, on him.

And, finally, the first lady can today declare victory as fewer sweet treats are available to the American people, obese and otherwise, who refuse to do her bidding and eliminate sweet treats from their American diets.  Can’t convince them to obey you voluntarily, Michelle?  Then, by God, take the treats off the market and force them into submission!  Of course, her victory may be short lived if another company purchases the brand and the recipes, but we may remain confident that if this happens, she will find some other way to protect us from ourselves.

So see, a win, win, win all around for the leftist agenda.  And just in time for the launch of the 2012 holiday season.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Despite what you here in the news, poor management shares much of the cause of Hostess’s demise. In the last 10 yrs. they have gone through 7 CEOs. In 2004 the union agreed to wage and benefit cuts. The CEO at that time accepted a 300% raise. In addition, smart grizzly moms are less likely to put this kind of junk food in their cub’s lunch boxes, so sales have been down. Daddy grizzlies are better able to provide for their families when they earn union wages and benefits. Yes, families come first; except when excessive CEO pay is on the line.

    Fred, for you it’s unions over jobs and country? We have to agree to disagree.

    “Zombieland” is here folks. Instead of flesh eating zombies, we have to get past mindless union-bots and liberals who can’t mind their own plates to get our hands on the last Twinkie.
