This is the end of Hostess Bakery Company. It was started in 1930 and died a few days after Barack Obama was reelected. The smiles have barely left the faces of his supporters, and now thousands of them across the country are being fired and laid-off.
“We deeply regret the necessity of today’s decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike. Hostess Brands will move promptly to lay off most of its 18,500-member workforce and focus on selling its assets to the highest bidders.” With these 45 words, the world has been turned upside down for “proud and determined” union members who were going to “show Hostess how things will be from now on.”
Instead, they got a smack across the nose and a clear lesson about how an economy really works. These 18,500 people have been led into a strike they never had a chance of winning. They foolishly believe Obamanomics works because their leaders told them so. Commies and union leaders lie.
The unions involved were thoroughly warned that a strike would mean the end of Hostess, but alas they didn’t care. They had just reelected their president – so what could go wrong? Hostess would be forced to remain in business to provide them with jobs – wouldn’t they?
Because they are liberal Democrats, these people know nothing about how wealth is created and don’t really care. All they know is if you have wealth, they will find a way to take it. They are child-like in their understanding of wealth. They are like five-year olds who don’t believe “mommy has no money” because they saw a ten dollar bill in her purse.
There are those who will rejoice over these layoffs, which come just in time for Thanksgiving. The far Left wants to keep rocking America until she is upended and has to be redesigned. They are just as clueless as the union thugs. In the short-run, things will be very bad; but the one thing we have that they don’t understand is the American Spirit. America may fall, but she won’t be down for long. We understand this, and they don’t; but they will sooner than later.
