#1 ...AFL-CIO is blaming the company for refusing to operate at a loss.
More than 18000 now out of work. But somehow, the union bosses never seem to share in either the blame or the pain. Funny how that works. Trumka talks like a Patrice Lamumba honor graduate.

#2 All is not lost. Since the only problem is poor management, Mr. T and his colleagues can buy the assets of Hostess out of the bankruptcy for a song, re-start the company, rehire the 18,000 workers according to whatever terms they think are fair, and then start producing "Union Twinkies - The World's Most Expensive Confections". And don't forget to personally guarantee the loans, big guy.

#3 I second the motion !
Obama must nationalize the Twinkie industry in the national interest!
The Twinkie is of vital importance and can help in the recovery of New York and New Jersey in the wake of Tropical Storm Sandy and other such disasters.
"We noted that Twinkies pass almost no current, probably because they are almost totally sugar.
If something has wall current passed across it without even flinching, people take notice. This, above all other tests, shows the Twinkie to be a truly multipurpose material. If you want to electrically isolate a room from static or higher voltage electricity, you can simply line it with Twinkies. If a power line has fallen in the road and you want to move it, you simply wrap the line in Twinkies, and then it is safe for moving...the possibilities are endless! "

#4 Then let them eat streusel cake.
Perhaps the twinkie could be jet expelled into the cab of the Chevy Volk so that during a wreck the occupants are not electricuted.

#7 Thank you Kommisar Auric. Because I may have hurt the feelings of my fellow komrades who did not have this idea I shall dutifully report myself to the nearest Grievence Officer for re-education or to have my mind redistributed, government willing.
