It Has Been Nice Knowing You Hostess

More wisdom from Facebook friend, Lee Jenkins. Seriously, I need to get this guy to partner with me on this blog.

Wendy Wood-Canaga, said something the other day that I would like to bring to everyone’s attention, it was simple but brilliant!

We all know what happened with Hostess foods in the past couple weeks with the bakers union going on strike. Hostess was in the midst of their second bankruptcy while at the same time dealing with greedy union thugs once again demanding more than their fair share!


ir share! Now where have we heard that one before? Oh that’s right Barak Obama, said that back in 2008 to Joe the Plumber, remember Barak said he just wanted to make sure everyone got their “Fair share?”This is what happens with labor unions, they demand more than their fair share. Ever wonder why prices for goods and services go up every year, ever go to the grocery store and wonder why every year food prices get higher, why cars and trucks are more expensive every year? Union contracts plain and simple.

Every year Unions negotiate salaries with companies demanding more money for employees and usually get it! How does this affect you and I? The company has to raise the price of goods and services as a result, so what happens is that we the consumers are the ones that end up paying for the raises!!! This really annoys me!!! Unions in this country are the biggest reason for price increases at the store, and at the dealership!!!

labor unions have destroyed countless American industries, including the Detroit automakers who got billion dollar bail outs and who paid for it? Tax payers!!!!!!!!!!! You and I!! Did you and I see a dime of that money benefiting us? Hell no we didn’t!!

Unions now want federal arbitration to determine wages and benefits for private industry. How’s that for government taking over control of private businesses. It’s called European socialism which is what has almost destroyed employment in European countries. I’m sure there are those collectivists out there who will welcome a change like this. Just think all those forced holidays, bankrupt pensions, limited hours per week but you’ll be making a great wage with no possibility of ever losing your job. What does that remind me of – oh yeah, the teacher’s unions.

The fact of the matter is that not only high corporate taxes is killing industry here in America, but the labor unions even more so they are literally destroying industry and the education system!!! It’s time for company’s to allow contracts to expire and get rid of the unions all together!

So to what Wendy said a few days ago, and I’m gonna paraphrase, she basically made the statement that everyone should not panic over hostess shuting it’s doors after 82 years that someone in the private industry would adopt the Twinkie and starting making it again with non union employees, and ya know what she is right, I was at the grocery store last night and noticed that Little Debbie, another bakery had already started making Twinkies and selling them in stores.

I hope little Debbi, is union free although I doubt it, but at the same time that won’t stop someone else who is union free from making the product. Hostess was apart of American culture for 82 years, but the unions destroyed them, just like the auto industry, the steel industry, the air line industry, textile industry, coal industry, the railroad industry. All these industries have struggled and some have failed especially the airline industry, where many companies had to sell out or merge because of the unions.

“Fair share!” Fair for whom, you and I, no unions that’s who! Unions should be run out of this nation for good before we lose more American Pioneer companies. Who’s next Oscar Meyer, Coke, Hershey? God forbid a hot dog maker doesn’t make $45.00 an hour!

The Japanese automobile industry does so much better than the American industry because they are union free in JAPAN, and because they pay their employees a decent salary. It’s the Unions that supported Obama in the past 2 elections and it is Obama that supports the unions. We are headed towards the so called “Fiscal Cliff and no one in Congress is even talking about the unions, and how much damage they have caused to the economy. If we are going to fix our economy, we need to do more than cut spending and taxes, we need to rid ourselves of the leaches sucking this economy dry, and destroying American Iconic industries like Hostess.

Thanks Wendy for your words of wisdom we would do well taking that advice!! Preserve the economy and boycott unions!!!!
