Unions kill Twinkie the Kid

A sad day indeed. Hostess, the maker of Twinkies, Wonder Bread, Ding Dongs, SnoBalls, and other goodies, has announced it will close. This means the loss of about 18,000 jobs nationwide. “We deeply regret the necessity of today’s decision, but we do not have the financial resources to weather an extended nationwide strike,” their CEO says.

So why did Hostess have to shut down? Because the Unionized bakery workers refused to take a pay cut. Unions which vote Democrat. AFL-CIO, SEIU, and other Union organizations get money from their workers in the form of dues, and get money and favors from the Obama administration. It’s no wonder they almost force their workers to vote for Democratic candidates, it’s their life blood!

The economy is NOT getting better. The policies of the current administration aren’t helping either. Pro-Union, Pro-Green Lobby, means anti-business, anti-energy, and anti-growth. God save our American Republic!

Jobless claims soar!

Total weekly jobless claims up to 439,000, while consumer prices rose slightly last month as higher rents and costlier food offset cheaper gas.

Giving the election away?

Giving the election away?

“What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.” – Dr. Adrian Rogers

Polarizer-in-Chief

by Ben Shapiro

President Obama promised to unify Americans. He promised us no more red states or blue states. He didn’t just promise it once. He did it over and over again: 

“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America, a Latino America, an Asian America, There is a United States of America.”– Obama’s starmaking 2004 DNC speech

“I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” — Obama at the 2007 Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Iowa. 

“You [voters] said the time has come to move beyond the bitterness and ager and pettiness that’s consumed Washington; to end the political strategy that’s been all about division. And instead make it about addition; to build a coalition for change that stretches through red states and blue states.” – Obama victory speech after the Iowa caucuses. 

“I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.” – Obama’s 2012 victory speech. 

So much for that.

In the aftermath of the 2012 election, the vast majority of states are either entirely blue or entirely red, their entire legislatures and governors of one party or the other. As the Wall Street Journal reports, “In 46 states, the same party now controls both chambers of the legislature, creating distinct divisions between red and blue states.” That’s the highest number in 70 years. When governors are counted as well, there are just 12 states across the country with divided government. A full 38 states are of a single party.

If this continues, we are watching the end of America as we know it.

Red states are governed very differently from blue states. Of the 22 right-to-work states, which have provided 72% of the jobs under the weak Obama recovery, only Iowa (divided), Nebraska (nonpartisan unicameral legislature) and Nevada (Democrat-controlled legislature) are not solid red. Meanwhile, the bluest states – states like Michigan and California and Illinois – are totally bankrupt.

What we are seeing is a complete divide throughout the country on the state level. We only get to elect one president. But on a state-by-state basis, it’s clear that the American people have two very different ideas of which way they want this country to head.

If the blue states hold true to form and the red states continue to grow, it will not be long before the red states are largely subsidizing the blue states. And when that happens, look for the bond that holds the states together to fray. If California is America’s Greece, Texas will be America’s Germany. And if the European Union cannot hold, don’t be surprised to see internal pressures in the United States, too, as more and more Americans become frustrated by a distant yet intrusive federal government they feel they cannot control.

Obama is fed softballs at his presser

Obama is fed softballs at his presser

“No president has never received cover from the press as Obama has. No wonder he won re-election. He’s never met a tough questioner. They’re too busy kissing his ass.”
