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.

It wasn't all bad though, it did help make me the person I am today.

Yea your right I wasn't a good union member, I can not count the number of times I was told "Slow down , you're making us look bad by working to hard" or "You've already made your quota, go hide for the rest of the day". Most of the crew called it "Hurry up and wait" but our steward called it "Hide and seek for a grand a week". Frankly I always felt a little dirty getting paid for hours I wasn't working, almost like I was stealing from the company.

There are 3 parts to your statement, in the first part you stated, "Obviously two more who were never in a union !" since we have both previously said that we were that is the same as saying we lied. It the second part you asked, "How can you be credible if you have NO EXPERIANCE ?"( got to love the spelling) That's a good question, how did you feel about our current president before the election? In the third part you said, "All you do is repeat the standard right-wing line !" Well I cant speak for Tiredofit but I'm not right wing and have no idea what "the standard right-wing line" is because it appears to be anything or anyone that disagrees with you.

Here is a direct quote of your post Bob, it was posted 3 days ago immediately after Tiredofit's and my posts and is currently on page 5 of this forum.

"Obviously two more who were never in a union ! How can you be credible if you have NO EXPERIANCE ? All you do is repeat the standard right-wing line !"

moderation, You are correct, I most likely would not have looked it up but since Bob (who looks more and more like Munster every day) Barker was implying Tiredofit and myself were liars because we happen to disagree with him some response was necessary. I do know that some posters here regard R1KRA8 as a "parrot" or someone who "cries wolf" and would never take the time to look it up for themselves, some even clamed to have looked and still didn't get it. I was just trying to shed some light on the situation.

caspi- I wasn't referring to your comment. But you did take the provided page and make your own investigation,no? And I do understand that the location changes in both days and page as contributions are added, but would you have had any idea where to find that info without that day and page tip ? I remembered the info, but I wasn't at all inclined to search it out. But if one stores such info, it can be easily referenced, but why might one have a particular interest in such trivia,ready at hand?

moderation, Archived to the exact page? No, that would be difficult because the page numbers change every time a new page is added. However since this is a forum and not a chat room, conversations can draw out over several days so I do quite often read back over the pages that are very old.

Caspi- do have anything archived,....anything that goes 8 or 9 months (or any span of time)back into any of these threads, anything that references personal information shared by posters, such as vocations and just anything?Archived to exact pages....?

moderation, I don't get the "Big Brother" reference, at the risk of seeming naive would you please explain?

It is only a matter of time until the UAW flows into those southern auto assembly plants. And VW actually prefers a worker represented arrangement.It will be interesting.

Yes,caspi, he was. Meet "Big Brother".I remembered that information,and chose not to share it,but I didn't retrieve it from a dossier. Who always cries wolf?

BobDahler I believe R1KRA8 might be referring to the posts where Tiredofit and myself name the unions we were in, IAM for tired and UBC for me.
