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.

BobBarker, when you think about that way, time does fly by rather quickly. sounds like you may put a little extra rub on it next time you change the strings. i am not sure about the ebony, but on my rosewood fretboards i usually apply some fretboard oil every six months. sometimes more often if they appear too dry. anyway play it as often as you can. time's a wasting!

scrappile, good afternoon...yes indeed..you did remember the buscuits. i am impressed with your memory. my wife would want the same from me...she just doesn't relaize with her..i have selective memory! you and bobdahler are very honest about Labor Unions and are brave enough to lift the veil and say what is is. bobbarker on the other hand has this perception of what it is and stays in pigeon-hole mode with them. my biggest contention with labor unions are when they exist in the public sector. that relationship is very uncomforable to me as a taxpayer. it is too easy for the two to become intertwined and cause harm to the citizens in which the elected officials are supposed to exercise proper judgement. it is a breeding ground for corruption and as we have seen played out time and time again, it almost always does not end well. i am sure the intent is honorbale...but once humans get involved it always ends up badly. i have never not seen a human mess up a good thing. have you?

manufactured. the problem with gibson guitars in the 70's is that they fell victim to the factories irregular serial numbering system. there are other features, that if left unchanged can further pinpiont the year.

BobBarker, good afternoon...sounds like you have a standard les paul custom. most in all black came with the gold hardware and white triple-layer binding around the body and the peghead. they usually had a ebony fretboard as opposed to rosewood. it would have been much darker than the reddish-brown of rosewood. they were very popular in the 70's...think frampton. a buddy of mine had a factory 3 pick-up model which was the cats meow at the time. i had the chance to buy a white version from him a few years ago...but we could not come to terms on the price and it was not a must-have for me. if you would like and don't mind...post the serial number abd whether the serial number is ink-stamped or pressed into the back of the peghead...and if "made in the USA is also impressed into the wood under the serial number. if you do not desire to do that...just find the "gibson guitar dater" website online and enter the requested information and they can give you an idea when it was

LTS: I remembered the biscuits, just not the restaurant, and you were talking about labor as a special interest, thing is we have a voice for hedge fund managers, we have a voice for corporate,we have a voice for right to work for nothing, we need a voice for those that don't want to be subsidized to support their families, for those that want better for themselves and their children, union or non union, labor needs a voice, How else are they going to get reps, state/federal/local to listen....

BobBarker, what year and model les paul do you have? that is if you don't mind telling. my first guitar was a 78' ibanez PF200. i bought my youngest daughter a nice Ibanez single pick-up hollow body jazz guitar. plays and sounds pretty good. actually i have several myself that i have accumulated...when they were all reasonable. they are as follows: 1970 gibson lp goldtop deluxe, 1958 gibson lp junior, 1961 gibson lp junior, 1956 gibson blonde es-175d, 1985 schecter strat, 1970 fender champ, 1973 fender tube reverb unit, 1984 mesa boogie 50 cal head with silver anniversary marshall 4x12 cabinet loaded with vintage 60 celestions, 1970 gibson blue ridge custom acoustic, wah pedal, digital delay, flanger, as well as a rockman unit. i just piddle around with them...nothing serious.

Bobbarker...one thing that youtube has revealed to me is how many great unknown musicians and singers are really out there. do you favor acoustic or electric guitar or both? what gear are you using at the moment? same question for you thegreek. rocker shared with me that his choice is electric...i think i recall him saying he has a Strat...i may need a refresher on that.

BobBarker...good for you! you are correct about youtube, it has almost single-handedly killed the business of instructional videos and many teachers.

scrappile...labor in and of itself is very noble and admirable. in that i think you will agree. the labor i was referring to was not individual labor but the organized variety that has morphed into another entity that differs in many ways from the noble ideas at the root of it's creation. my point was and is that organized labor in this day and time is a Special Interest Group. that was the crux of my statement.

LTS- Labor is the noble cause, for even if your income is from your money making money for you, somewhere in that equation, someone is laboring away to let you achieve that. Even if it is the person making that ham biscuit you enjoy, or the farmer making that sugar available, or the grower of the tea you sweetin with the sugar, as you wash down that ham biscuit...think about what a chore it would be, if you had to now your own fairway....OK Rikki, you can eat more paste now....

BobBarker...newsflash: Labor is a special interest. you have been duped into thinking it is actually still a noble cause.
