Bankruptcy Judge Says Try To Save The Twinkies – Mayan Calendar and Irony

The bankruptcy judge listened to Hostess request for liquidation of assets but noted a technical aspect.   The Union never entered any mediation – they just went on strike.  Thinking the average rank and file union member might have a divergent opinion now they they realize the company will indeed liquidate, the Judge says give mediation a try now, thinking the union will pressure the leadership to change opinion.

TWINKIE PRIDE - Hostess Brands Inc. and its second largest union will go into mediation to try and resolve their differences, meaning the Irving, Texas-based company won’t go out of business just yet. The news came Monday after Hostess moved to liquidate and sell off its assets in bankruptcy court citing a crippling strike last week.

The bankruptcy judge hearing the case says that the parties haven’t gone through the critical step of mediation and asked the lawyer for the bakery’s union to ask his client, who wasn’t present, if he would agree to participate.

The case is being heard by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York in White Plains, N.Y.  (more)

Meanwhile in what can only be described as seriously Ironic an equity company named Sun Capital Partners has offered to buy out the Hostess company, run it as an “going concern”, and thereby save the jobs of the stupid union fools who refused to negotiate a sustainable contract and went on strike.

The founder of Sun Capital Partners, Marc J Leder, is the person who hosted the private fundraiser at which Mitt Romney made his infamous 47% statement, Host of Romney party dubbed ‘private equity party boy’.

So the parasitic prog union members would actually be saved by the very guy they used to ridicule Mitt Romney and reinstall Barack Obama.

    • Auntie Lib says:

      This is a very helpful list. It’s not about boycotting the liberals so much as it is about supporting businesses that support the free market. The only one that really sucks for me is Costco.

      • stellap says:

        Me too, Auntie.

      • chevymisty says:

        I can’t stop shopping at Costco…they are the only place that sells my cheese dip….oh and my mom works there…I can’t seriously support putting her out on her ass.

        • Sharon says:

          The fact is, we save considerable shekels at Costco, and the bulk buying has changed my baking and meal planning habits in ways that benefit us in spades. So that one’s an issue for me, too.

          • michellc says:

            We don’t have a Costco, so I’m good. We have WalMart’s version, Sam’s Club.

            Good thing though this wasn’t back when I was pregnant with my daughter, I always craved Sonic cheese coneys and chocolate malt, that would have been a big issue back then. The cravings would have won.

    • Mikado Cat says:

      If the money went to a national candidate maybe, but if they are supporting the local candidate then there may not have been a choice, you have to have some money on the expected winner.

    • Ad rem says:

      Wow…..looks like Darden has done a complete 180!

    • Looks like I’ll be shopping at Walmart & Home Depot rather than Lowes. Next time I’m on the road I’ll stay at Marriott & eat at Outback Steakhouse. No more shopping at Rite Aid, wearing Levi’s or drinking Seagrams. I’m not spending a dime more than necessary in Obama’s economy.

    Proof that unions are the spawn of Satan! The Great Liar (Satan, not Obama) had to get unions to destroy the only thing that has been scientifically proven to be capable of lasting through the predicted Mayan el Armageddon. .

  3. Juan says:

    Like Santa Claus, I’ll be checking that list twice before spending any of my hard earned cash that benefits them/Democrats/Obama. It’s also worth mentioning that Dreamworks Animation was a major Obama donor along with National Amusements, Inc. a privately owned theater company that operates more than 1,500 movie screens under its Showcase Cinemas, Multiplex Cinemas & Cinema de Lux. Plus, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz endorsed President Obama for a second term less than a week before the election. No problem passing on their overpriced garbage.

  4. Mikado Cat says:

    After 10 days of no production, loss of perishables, what sort of concessions from the union could keep the company running? I don’t see that happening.

    Bimbo has some weird products, toast with frosting.

  5. lovemygirl says:

    I emailed out the list to family and friends. Who do you give your money to? I shop online quite a bit and gravitate to family Christian oriented stores.

    These are the guys who live off the dues of the members working for Hostess. Shameful and shameless at the same time.
