My Thanksgiving Union Rant Wordled

Newser) – What killed Hostess? Don't believe the people blaming private equity or America's changing tastes. Labor was the real culprit, writes Holman Jenkins at the Wall Street Journal, but don't blame the striking bakery union, which is, at worst, "guilty of perfectly justifiable attempted homicide." No, the real problem was the Teamsters. The bakers wouldn't budge because, as they "rightly saw it, they were being asked once more to prop up Teamster jobs." Hostess' bakery operations were actually pretty efficient. But its distribution was a mess.

Drivers weren't allowed to help load or unload shipments. Wonder Bread and Twinkies had to travel in separate trucks. The company was, it said in court, "unable to profit from many of their existing delivery stops," or to enter juicy markets like vending machines or movie theaters. Bakery jobs, meanwhile, "have become crummy-paying thanks to previous givebacks," and Hostess already planned bakery closures. So bakers decided to let the company liquidate and try their luck with new owners—even if it meant "throwing their Teamster brethren under a bus." Read the full column here.



Aside: A quick survey by the National Bureau of Surveys shows that 71% of Americans hate union guts.  Eighty-one percent of the 71% were union members.

My God. It's like we were Jewish and some of our kids voted for Hitler!

Voting For Obama Keeps Families Away From Each Other For Thanksgiving

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Each Thanksgiving, Davidson typically loads up his family and makes the 130-mile drive to his parents’ house. This year, Davidson will take the kids to wife Kim’s family instead, but even that could be tricky: They are conservative as well. So Brian and Kim will try to avoid any topics that could lead, they say, to “an Obama rant” around the table.

“Anything can cause it,” Brian says. “We’re just going to suck it up.”


Don't let this happen in your family.  Simply disinherit any who voted for the sumbitch, and be gracious.  Actually. you won't have to disinherit them;  Obama will have done that in short order.  Maybe some Ex-Lax in their cranberry sauce?  Hide the TP.
