This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

As if I didn't have reason enough to not vote for Obama, this is the proverbial straw the broke the proverbial camel's back!

Hostess in Bankruptcy, say it ain't so! Say it ain't so!

As Obama can only propose things that congress will inevitably shoot down or mutilate beyond recognition; I think we should all recognize the true source of our woes.  Grand-parent aged babies who are only good at whining, backstabbing others, and putting their own playpens first.  It's our own fault for not electing officials who will strive to reform our representation system to allow true democracy to flourish in this new age of information and communication prosperity.

My dad and I are HUGE Hostess eaters, so we've been following this ever since it was just a wee rumor. It's so depressing, it actually made me forget my diet for a moment and get a feel-better pie (I'm partial to cherry myself). What's really killing me right now is that Kodak filed chapter 11 yesterday. ( http://www.newsday.com/news/region-state/former-trailblazer-kodak-files-for-chapter-11-1.3463160 ) I really have always liked Kodak film best (and the song Kodachrome). And I was just informed of this..... http://www.thestarpress.com/article/20120120/BUSINESS/201200322/Popular-file-sharing-website-Megaupload-shut-down

Ok so seriously 2012 was the end of the world? Between the 3, I might as well just crawl into bed and sleep through the rest of the year.
2013 (in the works): Soi Fong (Bleach), Faith (Mirrors Edge), Agito/Akito (Air Gear)
Stay tuned for more information at a later date.

You know it's funny at first i thought Obama was to blame but then a friend of mine Peach Wookiee told me she did a little online snooping about Hostess. And it looks as though there may have been some mismanagment at the top. Ahh, that old demon known as corporate greed. it'll do the trick evry time.

Wait what? You mean the President isn't really personally responsible for every company that bankrupts itself!? That is crazy talk!!!!1111!!!!
And now I'm a catgirl?

I was wrong not everything is the President's fault. Sometimes company execs shoot their own company in the foot.

I can't take the WSJ seriously anymore. They used to give my economics class in high school free copies every day (but then mysteriously stopped, hrmmm).

Also one of their bloggers swore he knew a billionaire who got 2-3 hours of sleep a night and worked hard every day, and had been doing it for ten years. Yeah, he'd be dead by then if that was true.

Granted, it was one of their bloggers, but the fact that they have a blogger who makes such ludicrous claims is ridiculous.
