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... exactly how are you applying your logic to my statement? Hillary lied about having classified material on her server. that's a big no-no...thats why the F.B.I. is involved. i don't think the republicans control the F.B.I.

OWO...do you think the topic of unions will pop-up at the debate? you and others have made mention of the so-called circus of republican presidential wanna-be's. well i think having a wide selection is a good thing. all of them have their own unique qalities and hopefully we will have a great candidate to put up against your heir apparant. Hillary may have an easier time once the FBI gets finished with her little server issue...of course as of now i don't know of any of our potential candidates that are under investigation by the FBI and D.O.J. at the same time. i imagine we would all want our President to be elected under those stellar credentials.

“At least for me, and probably other governors who are in a similar position, we’re not proponents of the law, but it is the law, and more importantly, until we can change and come up with something better to replace the law, we still care about our constituents, we still want people to do well,” he said. “

he's good ;)

Walker has encouraged state agencies to work with individuals to help them transition to coverage on the exchange. “Even though I’m obviously not a supporter (of Obamacare), I don’t want people to fall between the cracks,” he said. Interestingly, though liberals have accused Republican governors of trying to sabotage Obamacare, Wisconsin is one of a small number of states where signups for health insurance through February tracked better than projected.

say what??...

Recent polls put Christie toward the bottom of the Republican field in the 2016 presidential contest, with about 3 percent of likely GOP voters in his corner.

or maybe not...

OWO...my last post was just to get your goat....i think people have the right to organize or not to organize. thats the easy part...the hard part is what comes after.

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.

Good Morning Stillhere. i don't see a problem with letting members designate where their political donations are directed. i agree with OWO, that it would be couter-productive to donate to those that would be against the Unions interests. with that said, it seems to be a common problem with organizations that seem to unite for one cause or another, that dissention and differing of opinions prevent the solidarity that the Unions seemt o wish to project. heck, we see it from smalll organizations to large organizations. thats how alot of splinter groups are formed. when i donate to the United Way, i take great pride in being able to select, or appear to select, where my donation will be directed. the extra work for the unions accounting team should be well worth allowing the members the freedom to choose where their hard earned...and negotiated..monies go.

OWO...there is nothing wrong with having self-interest. it's actually what drives most of us to get off our bottoms and provide for ourselves and our families. the problem that some union members have is trying to achieve that goal at any cost. professional trade groups have my respect...it is the despicable actions, especially in recent years, that have sullied whatever "good" name unions have tried to brand themselves with.

So self-interest is o.k. for unions but no one else....tsk..tsk.

Hard to believe that this parasitic relationship discussion is still ongoing.

OWO...which candidate(s) do you see the unions really getting behind? do you think they would cross lines and hedge their bets?

Stillhere...what about a combo of Walker and Kasich? yes...OWO...i realize they are two "white" guys...but when we put up potential candidates of color they get called "uncle toms " and are roundly dismissed by the democrats and their own race. so with that said, i don't much care about fads or whims but the issues and fair representation. btw....i still like my boy Trump...but he needs to get his "game" together....unless he does and this is part of it. time will reveal all as long as we are alive to experience future happenings.

I agree with you and Moderation in both of your assessments of the fox. One day I heard what I thought was a cry from the woods only to discover a fox calling for something.
