... the unions have ALL the control over 'work rules' that required that Hostess maintain two truck fleets....

Umm... the Teamsters settled. The bakers' struck. The bakers have nothing to do with trucks.

but no...the unions insisted...that trucks run half empty...

Who said anything about half empty? Nevermind, the truck issue is mostly irrelevant, considering it's the bakers that "took down" Hostess.

That, and the Bloombergs of the world deciding what you could and could not eat.

WTF does that have to do with it? You're just dumping random facts and anecdotes into your ideological blender and pouring out goop.
