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.

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.

Tiredofit

Of course they have their rabid defenders like Munster there, but no one pays much attention to him anyway.

BOBDAHLER, While I appreciate all the benefits that are now law that Unions helped achieve, they have become far too political and tied with socialist causes for my taste, and they only represent 11 percent of workers.

BOBDAHLER, I have seen Unions from both sides, I have worked with Tradesmen in all the crafts, and I have been in a Union and served as a Steward for same. Unions are political machines and don't represent the rank and file.

R1KRA8: I've looked into your references, and honestly, I havent a clue as to what you are talking about. Could you clarify?

Seems like a legitimate question to me.

Tiredofit: What then, causes you to have such a dismal outlook towards unions now?

Its hard to believe that in 2014 workers would turn down the opportunity to have a group of people forcibly take part of their paycheck to support candidates and causes that they may or may not support, and all the while telling them what they can drive, where they may live or shop and even who they are allowed to marry.

BobBarker: Though I tend to agree with your positions concerning unionism, trading barbs with Rik is a no win proposition.

It could (will) go on forever...

No RickRat you did this by dumping your comment to me when you do the same on thing on these forums...Tessie ask where she could find other cities that ban fracking, I posted a link then posted a few paragraphs from the link...you didn't like the facts so you Whine...
