#1 Today's ChiTrib had a cartoon with the money shot being "It's Only A Twinkie." Typical lib gloss-over of the people looking at a more uncertain future (Granted that some may be deserving)....

#3 What to do with those 18,000 unemployed Irish bakers ?

Well....they're a restless, troubled lot. We could offer them cash and whiskey for a 90 day enlistment. Form them into regiments led by politicians, and march on "right to work" states.....

#4 The saddest thing is only 6000 of the 18000 are in the striking union. They took 2 other employees out with each of them.
Look for the union label.

#5 Support business also took a hit. Many more than the 18500 figure will lose on this. I still say retirements are probably underfunded. I know 200 out of the fortune five hundred are underfunded.
Training offered but for what industry?. Who is hiring?.

Twelve thousand Irishman and no fights? Oh god! What would have Jogn Ford thought of them.

#7 What's the problem? 100 weeks unemployment, Obamaphone, EBT, SSDI, laissez les bon temps rollez!

#8 Its official - never mind the hoopla about 2015, its Civil War in Amerikka in 2014.

And thus Virginia, we learn once again why any advice + warnings from our long-dead or pre-dead ancestors should never be ignored or downplayed -GOD LOVES THE TWINKIE!
