    They can go through as many books as they like - that won't stop Hostess from liquidating....

    Besides, it was only a matter of time before this was bound to happen....

    This is a perfect example of "who is John Galt?"
    John Galt was a wimpy pushover who was perfectly willing to let the corporate parasites and their even more worthless heirs make billions off his invention while giving him chicken feed until the heirs turned out to be socialist. Corporate patents is what truly proud geniuses should strike against.

    Hostess Bankrupt – Vulture Capitalists Picked Corpse Clean (VIDEO) | Addicting Info

    This morning, Hostess Brands, the maker of such staples as Wonder Bread and Twinkies, announced that they would be liquidating their operations, laying off all of their workers, and going out of business. The issues at Hostess have been decades in the making, a failure to innovate, to improve manufacturing methodology, and a regular problem of conflict between management and workers.

    In 2004, the company entered bankruptcy with approximately $450 million in debt. It emerged after investment from Ripplewood Holdings. Today, it now stands at just shy of $1 billion in debt, despite additional investment by two more firms, Silver Point and Monarch. How did this happen?

    These firms borrowed money to invest, which then they transferred that debt to the firm, simple. In effect, there never was any investment, only more debt added.

    And I invite you to move to some sweatshop country and make what the bosses earn there. After all, that is your ideal economy, where the employees know their place.

    He'd rather avoid hiring American workers while selling to American workers.

    I personally would like to see free Traitors chased out of this country. Considering how much opposition there is to offshoring now, it may in fact happen.

    How about I just stay here, continue to bust my ass, and actually provide income opportunities for my 11 employees while you continue to pretend to know how stuff "really" works. Don't worry...there are still people that are actually handlin business, investing, and creating jobs.

    nah....my response is 18000 people joined the ranks of the 23 million unemployed. Well played. You can continue to whine about those that succeed or create your own success. You can whine about capitalism or go t a socialist utopia and let someone take care of you. Your choice.

    18,000 people became unemployed because of vulture capitalists, not unions. You're well played, alright. As in played out.

    I voted Democrat. Which means I voted toward a socialist takeover of America. What were your feelings when you saw that both Ron Paul and Mitt Robbedme lost and the Democrats made big gains? Hmmm? We're taking over. The demographics show that the group that supports Republicans is in decline. Even Asians are proving to be in favor of Government help in some cases Now that's gotta sting.

    Just as the ATC did during Reagan, these people played "all in" and lost. Sometimes people really aren't bluffing.
