Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, Wonderbread, and Ho Hos, is going out of business.
What brought Hostess down is that no one we know has bought their crappy foods in years.
We buy bread, but do not hate ourselves or our children enough to serve them Wonderbread.
We buy donuts and cupcakes, but do not hate ourselves or our children enough to serve them Twinkies and Ho Hos.
Hostess made poison and foods that made you dumber.
Their food was so crappy that no one would buy it, and so they could not pay a decent wage or benefits.
What killed this company is what killed all companies -- bad management that made a bad product suited for another time, and consumers that would not continue to buy crap.
For the record, this same set of circumstances is why the Republican party and the unions and the American Kennel Club are all going south -- people march with their feet and their pocketbooks.
Stupid leadership making a product with low benefit and high cost is fatal if carried out long enough.
Ask the "Romney transition team" if you can find them!
