OGDEN — A truck driver with 45,000 pounds of sugar was turned away from the Hostess plant on Lincoln Avenue Friday after the company´s top officials indefinitely halted operations at the facility and others nationwide. "I sat around for an hour and a half … and then got a call to take the sugar someplace else," said Rocky Ridge, a driver for Idaho-based Handy Truck Line. Employees at the factory — which has turned out truckloads of donuts, breads, cupcakes and other baked goods for several decades

Reading this article about the sugar truck made me immediatley think that this is a scheme by Michelle Obama to control what we eat. Can´t think of a more iconic junk food to take away from us than Twinkies. Far fetched I know, by nowadays anything is possible.

The total number of people losing their jobs will be much larger than 18000 as people like the sugar company employee lose jobs also.
I love when the liberals blame the company for going out of business.
Who would simply shut down a a profitable company to get back at employees?
The libs want a company to keep losing and losing until every investor and supplier has lost everything.
Read Atlas Shrugged.

Last night on the news in Tulsa, they were interviewing some of the 60 people losing jobs as Hostess employees. Universally, those interviewed were ignorant of basic economics and were insisting that the company could have met the union´s demands. They were also, to put it delicately, typical Obama voters with regards to their personal demographics.

Too bad, lefties, Hostess isn´t the government. They can´t simply confiscate cash from their fellow citizens or make payroll indefinitely with borrowed money.

The dumbing down of America includes unions, who understand only one thing: gimme, gimme, gimme.

Remembering a post from yesterday that announced the petition to the White House to nationalize Hostess.

Imagine Twinkies being run in an Amtrak sort of way. Few billion here, few billion there... eventually, your stores might actually see delivery of the Twinkies.

The real story is how the demands of 5,000 union employees put 13,500 other employees out of work. I don´t expect it to be covered from that perspective - but that´s what happened.

Hostess should sell to a Company who´ll relocate to a right to work state before Obama, Socialist thug Trumpka and Holder can do anything about it.

A bit off topic but to show how ´dumbed´ down Americans are, last year, when gas prices started going up, a local TV station in Seattle was interviewing people on the street. One young thing, a college student at the U. of Washington told the reporter it didn´t concern her because she didn´t own a car. At times, you just feel like beating your head against a brick wall.

TEXT: Sen. Mike Lee on
"What´s Next for Conservatives"

Below is the text of Sen. Mike Lee´s (R-UT) October 29, speech, "What´s Next for Conservatives," as prepared for delivery. Thank you very much. It’s wonderful to be back at the Heritage Foundation. It has been quite a month in Washington. It began with our effort to stop Obamacare — a goal that all Republicans share even if we have not always agreed about just how to pursue it. And it is ending with powerful practical proof of just why stopping Obamacare is so essential. This law is unaffordable and unfair... and it’s getting worse all the time. As of today,

BLUFFDALE — Electrical failures occurred during testing at the National Security Agency´s massive data storage center in Bluffdale, an NSA spokeswoman confirmed Monday. The failures were discovered during acceptance testing conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. "During the testing and commissioning of the Utah Data Center, problems were discovered with certain parts of the electrical system. Issues such as these can arise in any project and are the reason the Corps tests and reviews every aspect of any project prior to releasing it to the customer," the Army Corps of Engineers reported. The NSA did not elaborate on

There had been only eight recorded sightings of the white-throated needletail in the UK since 1846. So when one popped up again on British shores this week, twitchers were understandably excited. A group of 40 enthusiasts dashed to the Hebrides to catch a glimpse of the brown, black and blue bird, which breeds in Asia and winters in Australasia. But instead of being treated to a wildlife spectacle they were left with a horror show when it flew into a wind turbine and was killed.

Growing Distrust Of Obama

Amid all the heated cross-currents of debate about the National Security Agency´s massive surveillance program, there is a growing distrust of the Obama administration that makes weighing the costs and benefits of the NSA program itself hard to assess. The belated recognition of this administration´s contempt for the truth, for the American people and for the Constitution of the United States, has been long overdue. But what if the NSA program has in fact thwarted terrorists and saved many American lives in ways that cannot be revealed publicly?

Herbert pleads with Pres. Obama

Salt Lake City — Gov. Gary Herbert is hoping a last-minute request to the president will give him the leeway to keep the state´s current model of a mandated health insurance exchange. He sent a three-page letter to President Barack Obama Tuesday touting the "fully functional," "innovative" and "cost-cutting" Avenue H, which offers a choice of 140 health insurance plans to 7,646 individuals in 318 small businesses throughout Utah. The current exchange and its ongoing enhancements, however, do not implement a full expansion of health insurance to all of Utah´s uninsured,

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
