Read that the CEO tripled his compensation to 2.5 million before filing for bankruptcy. All the execs got 70 to 80 percent raises last year. The company has used Bain style methods of charging huge management fees, bleeding the day to day employees, threatening them, then closing down and selling off the pieces of the company. Oh, I forgot...and blaming the unions The reason I know the picture above is faked is because the pall bearers aren't wearing ski masks. I assume those are the execs carring old twinkie to the graveyard. ;)

Just going by the hats, I guess there really is no difference between the mafia and vulture capitalists.

doubt it will disappear.

Are you kidding? WE'RE about to disappear! What we're witnessing here, whether you realize it or not, is a bottleneck event caused mainly by overpopulation, exacerbated by ramped up climate change damaging (if not eliminating before long) our ability to grow food, ocean acidification and sea level rise, scarcity of necessary resources like potable water and arable land (not to mention oil, etc.) and natural upticks in volcanic and earthquake activity - all of which, combined and interacting with the typical human propensity for violence (again, not to even bother with the global banking problems), will culminate in our extinction probably within 20 years (tops).

Umm, Tom, with all due respect, Twinkies are pretty nasty, but they aren't solely responsible for all that. This is not a "bottleneck event." It's just another vulture capital play.

C'mon, man, get a grip. You're doing your best to engineer a mountain out of a molehill, and people, rightly, will think you're crazy as a bedbug for doing it. Passionate about a cause and nutso are not the same thing.
