I bought Hostess fruit cake, the checker got a lesson on unions


I was checking out at the store today. I commented I was surprised to find a Hostess product still in the store. The checker said something like somebody will buy the line and sell their stuff. I mentioned some union pensions are trying to buy the company. She went off on unions were the problem. Unions always do this to companies.

Here I was talking to somebody at a no name store making close to minimum wage on a Sunday. I started rattling off the facts of the Hostess meltdown. She got and education and a changed point of view.

2. That's the most important stuff we can do. Stand up! SPEAK up! anytime, anyplace as

politely but firmly as possible.

That's the real revolution against MSM and FOR ourselves.

3. Good going... but

there are so many ignorants and so much lazy media... in addition to those with an agenda.

5. kick

A guy in front of me at the grocery store has the belt loaded up with dozens of hostess items and about 20 loaves of Wonder Bread.

We all had a good laugh in the line.

7. Yes, "unions always do this to companies"

That's right, we are in the business of putting employers out of business. We are also the "bosses."

Keep up the good work, Omaha!
