JemyM -

How dare you that little golden junk food has been a staple of everything that is America for the last 80 years. It endures and will be here long after were all dead.

I don't eat mayonnaise.

On a side note: At least I know how to say mayonnaise in Danish now.

When I read about U.S. unions, it always reminds me of the German Zünfte from the medieval times : http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zunft - Wikipedia translates this as "Guilds" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guild

Wikipedia's description of Unions seems to say that U.S. Unions are different from German Gewerkschaften : The German Gewerkschaft is not mentioned in the English-language Wikipedia article on Unions.
U.S. Unions are, however, mentioned in the German-languge article on Gewerkschaften.

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gewerkschaft
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trade_union

Both cite massive losses of members during the last decades.

Edit SEIU seems to be quite … weird, I read now : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service…national_Union
This behaviour is alien to Germany. German Gewerkschaften are not like this, at least not that I know of.

Re Hostess and the demise of the twinkie, et al. It seems that Hostess was plagued by bad and greedy management.

Ah, so that brownish figure in the caricature should be a bread ?

Edit : And to me, this is of course an welcome argument pro towards my thesis that "the richer = the more greedy" people become.

Very interesting is this, too :

Hostess' financial choices may be sound reason for workers' revolt, but they're all too common in modern American business where workers pay has stagnated since the 1970s, while CEO pay has increased by 725 percent. Think that's a typo? It's not.

And according to ThinkProgress, the impetus to protect executives over workers, even during executive-led financial misery, is now simply standard protocol. At the manufacturing company Caterpillar, workers pay was frozen while the CEO received a $17 million raise. And at Citigroup, CEO Vikram Pandit received more than $260 million in compensation even after his company’s stocks lost 88 percent of their value while he was in charge.
And THEN the Republicans STILL are against taxing the rich people ? Insulting.

Well, now we know why the U.S. has such an massive unemployment problem : Worker cuts, plus rise of management payments.

Plus, and this is imho even more important : The cuts the workers receive cannot be spent to support the in-land economy / in-land market.

The money workrs can't spend is missing as a support for the in-land economy => more insovencies & bancrupts.

Meanwhile, all the money flows up, like a river stream.
