    Lulz, but the flavor does. There is no flavor, just tooth rotting sweetness.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Tommy Boy worked for two companies (union shops) that told their workers the same thing: take concessions or we are going to have to close the plant. In each case, the unions said, "You're liars!!" In both cases, the plants closed. On the second one, Tom believed them and tried to talk to other workers. They'd have none of it. Their union said, "Strike!" They struck. The company closed three or four months later. Pensions taken over by the PBGC, retiree healthcare lost . . . what a tragedy.

    These workers are foolish, in my opinion. Their unions should be working with the company, not against it.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Too bad.

    See this is what happens when you let liberals vote in a Twinkie hater like Obama!!!

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    What about legal history and the "Twinkie defense"? What about me never having tried a fried Twinkie? Will it, sob, be too late?

    Save the Twinkie!

    And I agree; 92% of a job is better than no job.

    That is why the toothbrush, floss, and waterpik was invented.
