Twinkies Break Border War Fake Truce?!?

Maybe it's the last shot fired or just a sign that companies looking for sweet profits don't really care about political bargains . . . Checkit:

During a Wednesday afternoon earnings call, the Twinkies-maker (Nasdaq: TWNK) revealed that it will move its headquarters to Kansas, becoming one of the last companies to benefit from the years-long economic border war between Kansas and Missouri. Both states have agreed to end the practice of using state incentives to lure businesses in the Kansas City metro across the state line.

Their rent is going up. No business big or small in their right mind is going to stick around in KCMO since the assessment debacle revealed what to expect in the future.

Can’t blame them with all the crime and murder committed by those who never get punished, consider this a jump from blue to red. It’s a much wiser and safer choice.

Businesses hop from one side of the state line to the other. Robbing each other is a no-win game.

Seems like there are already enough "Twinkies" in Kansas.

And, 9:11, too many "Fruit Pies" and "Ho Hos" in Mizzery!

Well that will make up for a few of the hundreds of jobs lost in Garner with CenturyLink just announcing they are closing their office.

Eating that shit makes your teeth rot and your brain dissolve. And after you get old and fat, you get diabetic. Go stand around outside a 7-Eleven or Quik Stop and observe the passing parade. Amirite?

Who Cares about Hostess, all of their so called food makes people FAT and SICK, and Hostess is one of hundreds if not thousands of companies that make bad shit like that! Eat a Carrot instead of a twinkie, get skinny = getting some pussy. Meanwhile.... At the KCFD fire house we now eat gay, because we are all gay, and we have to be trim and fit to skip up the ladder to blow out the flames so you will give us kisses of praise and lick out butthole! Did I mention we are union?

9:57 - You should move to Kansas, and while we all know you already live there, stay over there, work over there And stay out of Missouri bitch! I am sure you rich fucks could turn your clown downtown into something better than a 7th street Casino, but you are too greedy to build anything outside of the redneck Race track along with the Legends that most Missourians wont visit unless they are on Vacation and had no clue where they were going because the internet did them wrong and sent them there. I miss the water park you smart people allowed to be built with the tallest waterslide in the country that you guys used to have!! that almost put Kansas on the map, oh wait it actually did and the park closed and was bought out By Cedar Fair, well you might have a chance one day for greatness, and since we here in KCMO have a huge homicide rate, I had a change of heart and welcome all Kansas people to come visit KCMO at their own risk, but once you visit and go home to the wifey you cheated on with a man you can now shut the fuck up!
