Oh's! No's! The Drudge Report Readers (if you can call them that) are Very Very Upset and Sad!!

Because the mean mean Unions have killed the Twinkie

I say FUCK YOU you Idiots!!! You and your backwards attitude toward the working men and women killed the Twinkie!!

Not The Unions!!

From the Union:

link to cnn story

"Our members are on strike because they have had enough," bakers' union president Frank Hurt said in a statement Tuesday. "They are not willing to take draconian wage and benefit cuts on top of the significant concessions they made in 2004 and give up their pension so that the Wall Street vulture capitalists in control of this company can walk away with millions of dollars."

1. It's really hard to find lard centered pastries these days.

It's so sad.

2. If they can't live without eating garbage why don't they go work there for slave wages?

4. Amazing!

I am always stunned that those people take everything at face value! I am sure they have no idea that Hostess has been on the verge of collapse for years, and then just recently gave their execs raises. Oh but wait, I am sure that is the unions fault too.

5. I guess the fact that the workers would rather

lose their jobs than get screwed over one more time, so some private equity firm could pocket millions says nothing to the readers of the Sludge.

7. I've seen this story all over the MSM and not one

of the items mentioned the Bain-like capital venture group that bought Hostess. They were forced by their incompetence to liquidate sooner than they wanted. But everyone blames this on the workers striking. I call B.S.

8. American media are a frickin' joke



of course they can't tell the whole story.

The MYTH the corporate-owned media have tried to sell for years is that Corporations are gentle, sweet, kind PEOPLE who only want the best for America.

And the US Worker, according to the corporate-owned Media? We are all greedy pigs who should just be thankful the corporations give us something to do with our hands all day, rather than expecting gifts like PAY or HEALTH CARE. We should be so grateful, we all work for free!

After all, life is not so hard or hungry in your shack if you get the thrill of seeing the CEOs drive by every few months in their Limos!
