‘Too Little, Too Late’
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2012 12:54:57 PM

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Monday blasted defunct Twinkie manufacturer Hostess Brands, Inc., for “unreasonably delaying providing the [Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International] Union with other requested information” and ordered the company to post signs admitting its bad-faith bargaining in its Biddeford, Maine offices. It is unclear who will seen the signs. “It doesn’t sound like it hurts Hostess because no one works in that factory anymore,” said Jim Anderson, the financial secretary for the BCTGM Local 334, the union that brought the suit. “It’s too little, too late

Comments:
How shocking. The radicals in the NLRB blast the company. I´m sure those 18,000 people who are now unemployed thanks to the union Marxists are pleased with their oh so hollow victory. s/o Oh, that´s right. They can sit on their hind ends while our tax dollars pay for them.

Probably not going to mean much. There are no laborers to whom Hostess now relates.

I would post the signs and publish photos of them on the web especially for the Labor Union idiots to observe. It would be a gigantic "So What?" and middle finger insult to the Øbama moron Mafia thugs who now rule the NLRB.

This is so very very typical of a goobermint bureaucracy.........weeks after the plant closes, they demand the signs be posted.

Months after 9/11, Atta had his application for a visa approved.

But they´ll do Healthcare SO MUCH better......

Excuse me but the Teamsters (hint: also a union) got all the financial disclosure they needed. I dunno how they did it: Asked for it? Read it when it was offered to them? Anyhow, they got all the disclosed information.

Beats me how the bakers could say it wasn´t available.

NLRB is a destructive force helping the parasitic unions - but generally incompetent fools, too.
Parasites (unions) doing what they do, weakening and eventually killing the host. well, actually Hostess in this case. [grin]

The poor fool being interviewed apparently thinks his loss of job was just bad luck like getting struck by lightning. These idiots cannot make the connection between their financially untenable demands and the company failing. Amazing and sad.

This has got to be from the Onion. The NLRB demands a sign be put up that Hostess wasn´t negotiating in good faith when the Union has put them out of business for not negotiating! And if true you know the Hostess guy that said they will post the sign is laughing his behind off. This story is dripping in more irony than an O Henry tale. This has got to be the funniest and most ridiculous thing a goobernment agency has ever done!

If I remember correctly, the NLRB is the same communist bunch that had at least two members illegally "recess appointed" by the Obammunist when the Senate was still in session. It´s going to the U.S. Supreme Court to void their appointments and void every act they made while they were illegally serving on the NLRB board.

Additionally, the NLRB was below quorum while the two members were no on it, so they should have been shut down completely until they were up to strength. Just another illegal and sad stupidity foisted on us by the renegade Obama Administration.

I guess law is just for the little people. Until the little people rise up and re-capture the government and the law for their own.

The NLRB has never been anything more than an extension of union leadership. It´s time has come and gone.

So I guess that its the Bakers Union who screwed up by not listening when the Teamsters told them not to strike, and now they are trying to get out of the soup pot by blaming all their troubles on Hostess. Do I have that correct?

#7 is correct and is that judge mad. The auto industry unions and the WH made a secret deal and didn´t tell the judge about it. Reversal of his decision could put the industry in a far worse senario than before. All hail Obama!

The Lefty equity fund which owned Hostess bought the corp out of bankruptcy with the express view that they could help the workers, and precisely because they were Lefty nitwits, the unions would be cooperative with them. Well, much schadenfreude later, they are Kaputenfreude.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

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.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
