Twinkies: Their history in
Chicago and the U.S.

Chicago Tribune, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/16/2012 10:00:01 AM

The first Twinkie bounced out of the ovens at Continental Baking Co. in River Forest on April 6, 1930. Plant manager James Dewar was looking to create a cheap, two-for-a nickel snack. So he grabbed some shortcake pans and got cookin´. Dewar got the name from a billboard for Twinkle Toe Shoes. He shortened it to Twinkies, and the rest is snack food history. The Hostess plant in Schiller Park could produce more than 106 million Twinkies a year. One packet of Twinkies contains two cream-filled sponge cakes and 300 calories. The Twinkie´s place in history:

It´s pretty stupid when the unions won´t give in and then instead of a 5 or 10% cut they ALL get a 100% cut....

Ah well, they will just join up with the 47% and bleed people who still work.

I´ve disliked unions ever since my father was forced to join one in the 1960s.

We used to sing "Look for the union label, and then run the other way."

Yet another beloved icon of traditional American values and taste is almost destroyed by those stinking, rotten, America-hating, Marxist union thugs. May they rot in hell for all eternity. I spit on them!

The Twinkie shall rise again, this time untouched by the foul, profane hands of a union baker!

Another American icon destroyed by greedy unions and greedy union members. We bought a package of Twinkies about 5 years ago and were very disappointed that the cake tasted awful and you had to put on your ´creme filling imagination glasses´ to find the slimmest sliver of the white stuff. We didn´t even finish the package and knew back then that Twinkies were on the way out. Found same with Hostess cupcakes. Tasteless cake, chocolate ´frosting´ like wax and a creme center the size of a cats eye marble.

President Obama is in Michigan to

When asked why President Obama chose to travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., (Go Blue!) to give a speech on the minimum wage Wednesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded, "We love Michigan, everybody here." But there´s more to it than that. Obama wants to increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour by 2016. Congressional Democrats support the proposal, Republicans -- wait for it -- do not. As in many other states nationwide, there´s a push in Michigan to raise the minimum wage. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 34 states are

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus lauded Wednesday´s Supreme Court decision striking aggregate limits on campaign contributions as a “very big victory for the RNC.” The court, in a 5-4 decision, found that aggregate contribution limits — the maximum amount a donor can give to federal candidates and political party committees throughout the course of a two-year election cycle combined — are unconstitutional. “This is a good day because the First Amendment applies to all of us,” Priebus said. “People should have the right to give their money and exercise their free speech to as many candidates and as many

LYNCHBURG, Va.— Possible Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said Wednesday that religious Americans have a duty to take a stand against policies, such as President Barack Obama´s health care law, that could threaten their liberties. "As believers, we are called to action; not just sitting quietly and hiding our faith under a bushel but to stand and speak no matter what the consequence," the Texas senator told students at Liberty University. "Religious liberty has never been more under attack." The Texas Republican and tea party favorite used his appearance here at the Virginia school founded by the late Rev. Jerry

Pelosi won’t run on Obamacare:

While Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took an Obamacare victory lap Tuesday afternoon, she appeared hesitant to make the law the central plank in her party’s push to win in 2014, telling reporters that “while we’re proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to jobs.” Pelosi appeared in front of the White House to extoll the expected 7 million Obamacare sign-ups the administration reached before the quasi-deadline on March 31. But when a reporter asked the California congresswoman whether this represented “vindication” and a “turning of the tide” on the unpopular law, she stopped short of declaring

A high-level former CIA leader flatly denied allegations on Wednesday that he had “inappropriately altered and influenced” the the now infamous Benghazi talking points to downplay the role of terrorism in the incident by inaccurately playing up the idea that the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks had been born out of a spontaneous protest — and then later “covered up” his actions. “These allegations accuse me of taking these actions for the political benefit of President Obama and then [former] Secretary of State [Hillary Rodham] Clinton,” former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell told lawmakers on the House Select Committee on Intelligence.

President Barack Obama – the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood Federation of America – issued a proclamation on Monday marking National Child Abuse Prevention Month. “In the United States of America, every child should have every chance in life, every chance at happiness, and every chance at success,” Obama said in the proclamation. In March 2003, then-Illinois’ State Senator Obama chaired the committee that considered the Born-Alive Infants Protection bill (SB 1082), which he voted to kill. According to the National Right to Life Committee, the state legislation that Obama voted against is almost identical to the federal

Democrats’ Midterm Challenge:
Matching Tea-Party Enthusiasm

President Barack Obama is hitting the road this week to raise campaign cash for Democrats in this year’s midterm elections, but his party may need something more than cash: higher enthusiasm. In fact, an enthusiasm gap is emerging as perhaps Democrats’ biggest threat as they try to keep control of the Senate and avoid an erosion of their position in the House in this year’s voting. This enthusiasm gap has two sides: Low Democratic excitement, and a high level of tea-party energy that figures to help Republicans. As previously noted in this space, renewed economic anxiety among key parts of

The Supreme Court struck down limits Wednesday in federal law on the overall campaign contributions the biggest individual donors may make to candidates, political parties and political action committees. The justices said in a 5-4 vote that Americans have a right to give the legal maximum to candidates for Congress and president, as well as to parties and PACs, without worrying that they will violate the law when they bump up against a limit on all contributions, set at $123,200 for 2013 and 2014. That includes a separate $48,600 cap on contributions to candidates. The decision will allow the wealthiest

The liberal media are trying to ignore his arrest, but California State Senator Leland Yee is such an amusing piñata of liberal hypocrisy that even his home town liberal newspaper is joining in the mockery fun.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
