A Petition To The President to ‘Nationalize Twinkies’

Not that long ago the government subsidized the auto industry to save the American car companies. Now, there is a petition circulating for the government to do the same thing for “Hostess”, the company that makes Twinkies. Now, with Hostess Brands closing up shop and heading for liquidation, some folks want President Obama to bail out the junk food industry.

The petition to “Nationalize the Twinkie industry.” was started by a gentleman in Kansas City. The petition is posted on an official government website, “We The People”. Interested in signing?. 

Here is how the petition reads:

“We the undersigned, hereby request Barack Obama to immediately nationalize the Twinkie industry and prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center,”

More than 3,000 people have already signed it. Should those numbers swell to 25,000 the President would be required to respond to it. I think it unlikely that the President will get involved in this bailout, but if you want your voice heard, go to the website and sign up!
