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.

No Rik he is a pretender. Never was in the USW. I suppose they wouldnt take him, but the USW would take anyone.

Oh I could tell you my name and show you my credentials but you would find another reason to doubt. That's fine as I said I am not really too proud of it. You on the other hand can only pretend to want me to meet you at the hall so you can show me your name on the craphouse stall. You know that

A guy who would lie about being in the USW would lie about making a phone call.

Were what region do you think I was in??? Doesn't matter you didn't really call anyway. Pretending to be a steelworker is pretty sad. At least pretend to be in a real Union. Say you are a Boilermaker or something with some respect behind the name. Steelworker. HA

Anyone dumb enough to think that he can call some Secretary and understand the political actions of a particular local, has NEVER been to a Union hall in his sad little life. Why are you pretending to be a former Union member?

Munster,you cannot prove any of your claims of Union affiliation. I think you are just a run of the mill socialist that wishes he had been a Union member.

Oh you have lost this argument MunSter when you go that far to lie. Why not let them choose? If you are correct everyone will opt in. If I am correct you will have very little participation. When do superppacs forcibly take money from working folk to give to the RNC????? Now you are just making up things

R1KRA8 why are you stealing my post from PN&S and using them here as if they were your own?

Posted 403 days ago.

Tiredofit

The lack of choice is obvious. Union folks don't all support the Socialist agenda of the DNC but their dues are being used to support it. Let them opt out if they wish. If they support a candidate they can contribute and likewise if not, they can support whom they please.

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public.

The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.
