    Default Mothers Cookies Early Casualty Of Economy

    Mother's Cookies closes after 92 years of business in Oakland

    By Associated Press

    Article Launched: 10/09/2008 11:08:55 AM PDT

    After operating in Oakland for 92 years, Mother's Cookies shut down when its parent company filed for bankruptcy protection Monday.

    Plant officials told workers Friday that operations would cease and cookies would no longer be made at the plant.

    In filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, company officials cited rising prices for raw materials and fuel.

    The closure comes after Mother's had shifted its baking and distribution operations to plants in Ohio and Canada in 2006.

    Housing market crash? Hey, shit happens.
    Sub-prime mortgage debacle? Well, you didn't see that coming?
    Banking and Insurance failures? Could happen to anybody?

    Mothers Cookies going under? DEATH TO AMERICA!!!!

    Now NO ONE can argue that things are unraveling at the seams!

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."
