What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

perhaps "bob"...but it is quite the oddity that they would use the same phrasing and vocabulary. in addition, it is peculiar that they would have the same problem with the same poster known as R1KRA8. not that i mind your new moniker in that you seem a bit more protective of it with your tone of speech than before. you came in with your notable bluster but have since seemed to have calmed a bit. it is my aeertion that you wish to keep up your ruse and deception as long as possible. either way...enjoy your time and interaction. as i stated before...i liked liked you and your work expericence...but your social skills were a bit distasteful. i am glad in that it seems you are well.

BobBarker(AKA munster)...you are going play ignorance til the end aren't you? you know full well that you are seeing the remnant from your tedious back and forth with R1KRA8. you are relly fooling nobody with the exception of asknot who thinks that you are some newbie on here. the folks that had to endure your prior postings know full well who you really are...but please continue your charade...it is quite entertaining.

BobBarker, you do not get an academy award. this thread looks the way it does because your other screen name and the comments under "munster" were deleted and cast into the pit. then again i am sure your "new" incarnation won't recall or repeat any of the nasty comments using descriptors like "goosesteppers"...will they? oh wait...you already have...darn.

Ok, at least you provided a link, I just get a little tired of NTRW, saying union dues are ALL mandatory, when the Beck objection choice is there, and unions cannot fire the workers, who choose to do this...

Detriot mayor and Detroit politicians gave contrarts to union buddies and were part of the reason Detroit went bankrupt. Detriot has the 3rd highest income per capita in the USA. Per Stossel.

“Kids don’t have a little brother working in the coal mine, they don’t have a little sister coughing her lungs out in the looms of the big mill towns of the Northeast. Why? Because we organized; we broke the back of the sweatshops in this country; we have child labor laws. Those were not benevolent gifts from enlightened management. They were fought for, they were bled for, they were died for by working people, by people like us. Kids ought to know that. That’s why I sing these songs. That’s why I tell these stories, dammit. No root, no fruit!”~Utah Phillips

Munster likes to have the 'final word' on each topic in the pick list of the "National Forums" so that, when someone looks down the posts they see Munster, Munster, Munster, Munster, Munster, ad nasium. I'm sure that he's trying to convince SOMEONE that he is an intellectual giant when, in fact, he's an arrogant as$.

So, let's fight fire with fire!

Right-to-work legislation is now being pushed by right wing, pro-corporate legislators nationally in order to break the power of unions, which now only represent 9 percent of workers in private industry in the U.S. Right-to-work would bar unions from collecting dues from all represented workers, while still requiring unions to represent all workers. It would reverse previous union elections won by unions in which the entire unit had elected to be represented by unions, breaking the unity needed by labor to have any power.

Starvation is not a choice, children living in lower standards is not a choice, politicos kneeling at the logos of big corporations is their choice, not mine, kissin koch bros. behind is not a choice, going on a free ride is your choice, collective bargaining is a voice, not a choice. right to work the truth

“In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.” —Martin Luther King, speaking about right-to-work laws in 1961
