And this guy is qualified to be Missouri auditor because? The good old boys club is alive and well in Nixon's administration. All you have to be is a friend of Jay's and you're qualified to be an auditor.

Obama is a narcissistic arrogant fool who isn't qualified to lead America or be commander in chief. He either can't or won't protect America and Americans as evidenced by his open borders policy. Will we have to put boots on the ground to defeat ISIS, likely yes, if they are to be defeated? You don't feed the crocodile hoping it will eat you last.

The tyrant and his lib cohorts will do anything to disarm honest law biding citizens, even use suspect executive orders to ban ammo. If the little dictator had his way we'd all be disarmed and the crazies and criminals would have free reign. And of course the cowardly GOP led congress will let him do it.

Workers strike leads to company shutdown

With the Hostess Brand Inc. closing its doors, say goodbye to Twinkies and Wonder Bread.

According to reuters.com, Hostess Brands was granted permission Friday morning from the U.S. bankruptcy court to go out of business after
failing to get wage and benefit cuts from thousands of its striking bakery workers.

Not only will consumers no longer be able to find the sliced bread or cream filled rolls on grocery shelves, but one local business will be
closing its doors.

The Hostess Bakery Outlet, 1438 N. 24th Quincy, will close at 4:00 p.m. Monday, November 19 for good. Locally, the move affects three employees. Nationwide, about 18,500 of Hostess's employees will lose their jobs.

A representative from the Bakery Outlet said "We knew this might happen with the bakers union being on strike."

She added the store has seen an increase in customers this week and will most likely not have any food left come close Monday.

The Quincy outlet's last shipment of baked goods came in Thursday.
