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.

Tell us ole whiny pus$ , If you hate unions so very much , why did you go to work at a union shop ? And why cant the tiredbrain troll understand the fact that if republinutz had tried to support unions in their effort for equality that they might enjoy the support of labor ! And I have already explained to you that you can do whatever you want but as part of a union the leadership does whats best for the MAJORITY ! What about that dont you understand ?

89 percent of private and government union employees agree that union workers should have the right to know how their dues money is being spent and believe the Department of Labor should disclose union spending on the Internet to ensure accountability. (The Word Doctors | October 26-28, 2010) THATS A MAJORITY NO?

OWO...you are right at 13%...they are hardly worth having...take it on down to zero and chalk it up as nothing more than a failed communist experiment. perhaps even a Kenyan-American idea.

And just why do you brainwashed right-wingers care so very much about 13% of the workforce ? Seems a bit odd !Is that what your masters want you to do ?

And just WHY !!!!! would any union make a contribution to a party that has only tried to outlaw them and make it hard for unions to organize ? Maybe if your precious republinutz had made a effort to help the working people instead of kissing the collective keisters of the well to do they would have more union support ! And just why would anyone with anti-union sentiment want a job at a union shop ? Its because of the better working conditions and pay ,that was provided by the unions that you hate so very much ! If you were ever in a union(highly doubtful) then you were the same coward that you are now and learned to try to pull the wool over good american workers eyes ! Please answer these questions oh lying one !

Yes and the answer is YOU can donate to whomever you wish but what the international does on behalf of the body is in the best interests of the majority ! Theres that self centered me,me,me of the true republinut coming out !You dont like unions , dont work in one ! Simple and plain ! Easy enough for any lying fool to understand !

?CNN exit polls showed that 38 percent of union members voted for President Bush in the 2004 election, but more than 95 percent of union funds went to support Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry.

69 percent of private and government union employees believe union officials need to stop spending union dues on partisan politics and invest it in creating more jobs, as well as focus on the membership, not the elections. (The Word Doctors | October 26-28, 2010)
