To the idiot states who wish to “secede:” You can’t secede. And, you won’t secede. You morons are merely expressing your IMPOTENT anger at President Obama’s crucial re-election.

Oh those greedy workers want fair treatment…

I was appalled when I first heard about Hostess’ issues and saw all the commentary blaming their problems on unions. It is disgusting that worker’s rights have come to be viewed as petty, while the profits of CEOs and unlimited reach of corporations is placed above that of people.

Corporations throughout history have proven that they cannot be trusted to look out for the well-being of their employees (or the community, environment, etc.) if left to their own devices. Do people really want to return to the early days of unfettered “capitalist” pursuit? If so, they don’t know what they are asking for.

WILL: I liked Hostess cupcakes, but don’t despair. Someone’s going to buy — someone’s going to — the brand has value. Someone will buy it.

RADDATZ: It’s not the…

WILL: And they will go and manufacture it in a right-to-work state, where Hostess does not have to operate under 372 collective bargaining agreements.

RADDATZ: OK. OK. Quickly, just Twinkie memories.

BRAZILE: I remember when it was 25 cent a pack, when my…
