Confronting Hostess employees

Youtube description :

"An Indianapolis citizen confronts a group of Hostess / Wonder bread employees while they sit around a camp fire roasting marshmallows instead of going to work to save their failing company."

Well, "confronting" may sound a bit too strong, though, strictly speaking. But I won't blame him being (relatively) mild on a natural moral refresher.

And assuming he was indeed on his way to work for himself, he makes a few good points, IMO.

why is no one blaming Michelle Obama's war on obesity?

Seriously...the sicker our people are the higher the gpd.

The healthcare industry and many other industries need people to be addicted, sick, and dying.

Barack should deem Hostess too addictive and unhealthy to fail...and bail them out.

Isn't Hostess's problem the

Isn't Hostess's problem the fact that they didn't fund the plan? They took employee contributions and their own contributions and spent it instead of putting it in the pension plan...

They want to spin any thing remotely related to unions into anti-union.

Whenever a corporation that sells unhealthy food goes out of business that is a good day.That means people are starting to realize theses foods are poisons and are not buying them,no regulations or laws needed.Voting with your money is the only way to destroy these big food corporations.

"food"?

Hostess didn't sell food.

LMAO,Your right!

Confronting?

More like "Yelling at them from a distance from the safety of his car."

Well, yes, what I alluded

Well, yes, what I alluded to.

Now, I'd rather see that than him stepping out and taking chances to be beaten up or himself to beat someone up eventually as provocations and anger can always unleash, when nose to nose.

Especially in our sooooo civilized iPhones/iPads-and-dozen-ESPN-channels era where people can't sustain an argument past two sentences without name calling, insulting, then fist talking, etc.

Plus, he may have just been on his daily route to work and had the idea to record his yelling his few points after spotting them the day before ? Who knows.

I found more interesting what he did mean than how he said it.

I understand the obvious danger of getting beaten up.

Still its only one step above making prank phone calls to yell from the safety of your car.

I did the same to some strikers when I was in high school many years ago, and thought I was being pretty big. I imagined that perhaps my otherwise dependable car might choose that time to break down and I was therefore quite a hero as I was expressing myself at great risk.

Today I realize that anyone can scream anything at anyone from the safety of a car and it impresses me a lot less.

I hear you. We all have our flaws

I hear you.

We all have our flaws. And I have big ones, sometimes.

E.g., with some french who complains to me, TODAY, about the mess they are in and voting for a socialist crook yet again, my flawed attitude replies :

"What was I ranting AGAINST, 20 years ago ALREADY, again ? You get what you 'pay' for. And you didn't bother to pay much attention to that at the time. So, you guys enjoy what you're getting now. I'm out of it, mind you."

I know that's somehow spiteful, but guess what : I don't even feel guilty to be harsh. Ignorance is excusable. Up to some point. But people who CHOOSE to remain clueless cannot have me to feel sorry for them.

As you pointed out, precisely :

we are adults, aren't we ?
