And, right on schedule, E-bay has all the Twinkies.

Oops. I didn’t read down far enough before I typed.
My ‘Lympian moment.

Speaking of union overreach: I read where the unions, especially the SEIU, the teachers unions… and the UAW…. all participated heavily in GOTV efforts on behalf of the Democrats, with the now-obvious results.
Since I had previously owned a piece of GM crap, and my wife had similarly owned a Chrysler turd, it was easy a few years back to write off those two for taking the bailout money.
That left Ford, which was OK by me, ’cause I like Fords. I’ve had a couple, my dad swears by them, and my brother has had several as well. All very durable products.
But no more. The unions wanted Obama so bad, they can own him. I will not buy anything that puts money in union pockets.
My next vehicle will be Asian. Fuck the unions!

Then you have that moronic imbecile Richard Tromka, saying yesterday the following: ‘“What’s happening with Hostess Brands is a microcosm of what’s wrong with America, as Bain-style Wall Street vultures make themselves rich by making America poor.” “Crony capitalism and consistently poor management drove Hostess into the ground, but its workers are paying the price.” He blames Romney for this!
Somebody needs to remind him that the election is over, and his guy won!
And 18 thousand American Union Baker families suddenly find themselves without a paycheck, just in time for Christmas, not to mention the union truckers, the people working in the distribution centers, the wholesalers, and the retailers who will all be looking at losses for the last month of the year.
Sure, someone might buy up the rights to the product names, and might buy up some of the bakeries, and the distribution network, but these aren’t going to be Union jobs any more, and the paychecks are going to look like something from Wally World. And the idiots who are willing to entertain $100 bids for A TWINKIE on the Internet will still go blindly on in their Unicorn World. But it won’t be the same, will it?
Looks like the Baker’s Union has been reading from the old PATCO union leadership booklet. And it worked out so well for them!
