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.

OWO...reading your post re-confirms that i have chosen wisely. either way, the "we" i was referring to is all Americans. we the collective. there are some issues that we all should agree on and those that i cited are great examples, as there are many more. the American pride has been denegrated since "your choice" of President and his miscreants took the helm. don't just judge him by his actions but find comfort in knowing that he tells us we are great to our face and then says we are not exceptional to the world. perhaps he forgot it was mostly deluded Americans that put his half-baked arse in office....or was it the world citizens?

OWO...I never forget that. That's why it is so vitally important to protect the integrity of our vote. We failed at securing our borders, we failed at repelling global terrorism, and we have failed to uphold what has made America strong.

I always wondered why there has been reluctance making people pay SS taxes no matter how much money they make.

Not sure why it is capped at what ever that number is . I seem to remember $113K or so.

Why the cap? Lift the cap and SS problems go away.

OWO....we all seem to have a habit of personalizing the problems rather than blindly solving the problems. finding that harmonious balance between extreme altruism and extreme narcissism is hard to accomplish when everyone is right.

You and I both know that mod. The the statement rings true: SS running dry at the hands of the Republicans is always a political issue.

We never run out of money for welfare and stamps.

It's simply a matter of power and control.

Liberal Politicians grant big contracts and pensions based on the Pension Fund Trustees promising 7-8% returns year over year. When the stock market fluctuates the Politicians blame the fund managers. You say if you cannot afford to lose it don’t invest it. There is also another saying that also applies: Under Promise, over deliver. There is no way any investor can maintain 7-8% over the long term. Politicians lean on those number to OVERpromise and now they are forced to under deliver.

Yup! And consider the " in the trillions " fleecing exchange of wealth that occurred in the last thirteen or so years.

OWO..it is good to see that you have toned down your anarchist talk. i was worried the men in black were going to pay you a visit. either way, i find your and others selfish support of terrorism on the innocent to be rather sickening. i also notice you did not answer the question i posed to you earlier. should i repeat it or could i not afford the union scale for you to make the effort to review? just remember if i do it for you...you may be charged my scale which i am certain you do not wish to pay.

It is obvious you do not invest in the stock market or you would not make such a dumb statement.

The fiscal future of New Jersey and Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential ambitions hang in the balance as Trenton finally faces the $104 billion deficit in the state’s retirement system. A long line of governors and legislative leaders — past and present, Republicans and Democrats — share the blame for decades of unaffordable promises and political favors. As a result, pensions are underfunded by $51 billion, plus the state faces a $53 billion shortfall from retiree health benefits, according to the latest official numbers.
