    Great fiction.

    This country NEEDS to preserve the vanishing jobs of the Conservative American CEO. We need more bailouts to continue their 50% annual raises and multi-million dollar bonuses. They are the JOB CREATORS! WE MUST SPEND MIDDLE CLASS TAX MONEY TO SUPPORT THOSE UNDERPRIVILEGED CORPORATE VULTURES!!!

    This country needs more Govn. spending to promote liberalism. Buying votes is the new norm. Buying jobs is now growing the economy. Taxation is now the way to prosperity.
    The un-American left at its best.

    Not fiction, Radish. Today’s political reality, and not just the President. Look at the pork brought home by Congress. The Bridge to Nowhere. Jet engines the military didn’t want, etc.

    It is sad to lose the jobs. It’s sadder that management didn’t see this coming and wasn’t willing to adapt. Perhaps saddest that so many CEOs opposed true health-care reform that would have taken the responsibility for the health of all Americans, letting businesses concentrate on creating products and competing in a free market with the rest of the world.

    Exactly — just a more modern version of vote buying that the Dems are famous for.

    @HOWGOZIT

    So show me the proof that any of this has happened.

    Nice. but you forgot that they did go into Chapter 11 and a judge did give them a blue print to help survive. Obama stepped into it at GM BEFORE Chapter 11 in order to save the Unions.
    You need to add one more point. Make sure you illegally pay off the unsecured dept and not the secured debtors. That always brings confidence to investors… not.

    I wonder how much of Hostess’ problem was a lack of effort in modernizing their product offerings. While Coca-Cola still offers Classic Coke, they also offer dozens of alternatives. Preferences change with time and demographics. Companies must adapt or…… I know, let’s blame it on the unions.

    This is the second bankruptcy for Hostess in the last 24 months. The unions took wage cuts once before. This contract the Teamsters approved the latest wage package, but the Bakers union didn’t. They didn’t even send their top guy to the last mediation ordered by the court. The Bakers unions still refused to negotiate. As such Hostess will go into liquidation phase of the Chapter 11 filing. It was rumored that there were buyers that would take over the company and maintain the union contracts. That was the rumor heard in the Bakers group and thought to be the reason they were so determined not to accept the latest company offer. So far that hasn’t come about and 18,500 are out of work.
    The who said what and all the blaming and finger pointing can go on but the one fact remains: 18,500 people are out on the street in a weak economy with skills that are not in great demand .

    @HOWGOZIT

    Then why do you make such absurd statements?

    I know the facts. The point is that everything Payne has cartooned is a right wing illusion and not a reality.

    They went into bankruptcy in 2004-2009. The company moved its headquarters to Irving, Texas (NOT coincidentally), and gee, a large part of the capital is controlled by GE Capital!


    “Poor little Hostess”, isn’t actually “poor”, or “little”. This current bankruptcy is just another in the companies (yes, they bought up many other brands along the way) now operating as “Hostess”, long history of fighting unions.
