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.

common sense dictates that you support people who have your best interests at heart !

Do you mean like the UMW? Did Obama and the Dems have the best interest of Coal miners at heart>?

Delusional much?

I told you before fluffy, giving you personal information will lead to one of two things, you scream LIAR and deny anything that is said or more dangerous, you would try to use that information and show up on someones door step, very very bad idea

OWO...You have been very vocal about your profession and union affiliation. No guesswork there. Your hero Obama takes exception to anyone accomplishing anything on their own. So us republicans helped you. Personally, I could lay out my financials as well as my work history and you would still spout your crap. You are neither worth the effort nor need to know anymore about me than you do. End of story.

How typical of a arrogant republiNUT or Nuts ! Full of guesses and speculation as always ! Neither of you two dingbats have any clue as to what my responsibilities were , or if I was the CEO of a corporation ! One thing I'm sure of , I earned every last dime I made and did so with no help from you or any other arsewipe republidud !When either of you idgits can fill us all in on the vast empires that you managed then I'll be glad to listen but if not its your turn to STFU ! OOPS , you seem to have shoved your head up your own arse ! Might want to pull that outta there !

OWO...how many people have you personally employed in your "own" business? how many people have you paid more than yourelf and your family? how have you been any more than someone selling their time, skill or talent to someone else? you have apparently earned what you were worth because you were either too lazy, stupid, or ignorant to increase your value or find better representation than those that gave you what you accepted in life and now crab about.

Once again you speculate on all unions being " corrupt " and as far as being "political", common sense dictates that you support people who have your best interests at heart ! Just how stupid would it be to support the republinutz who have always wanted unions to fail !Now who is being naive and goofy ?

Once again you attempt to make your answer fit the question. No one has ever claimed that wages were an issue, not one! The corrupt and political nature of unions is the issue not the worker unless they are like you of course

And yet you want to demonize labor for making a few pennies more !

You dont get it abby , theres no one person who is worth the salaries that executives have gotten over the last 20 years ! Its nice to have friends on the compensation committee ! If you look into it the boards of most blue chip companies have the same members who seem to rotate from one company to the other !

OWO...the Clintons share your skewed sense of economics...you should take your argument up with them and not someone who works both sides of the fence.

which will result in fewer workers being required. outsourcing and a changing global platform for conducting business also affects the labor markets not only here but around the world.

is that you Obama, lol...

numerous to count. who thought there so many sides to the fence. how many dimensions does it take to fully understand the "fence"?

OWO...sorry..i should have said "be quiet about it". two passionate people in a discussion is my only excuse. please allow me to add that you are correct that there are and have been some companies that have abused their workers fro any viewpoint. concede that fact. however, i do not consider it to be the norm, nor do i think it to be a serious enough problem to warrant political and public meandering to solve. most problems involving labor is geographical and environmental in nature. resources drive the movement of business as well as people. for example...look at modern day blighted areas. what businesses were there that allowed them to flourish? what opportunites were offered as a replacement? what did the citizens do to fill the void locally? did the citizens move to areas of opportunity? were opportunities taken by those illegally in the community? there are so many variables as to why some flourish and why some do not. the reasons are many and the arguments too numerou

you could say that but you would be wrong. businesses that do not change, adapt or pursue innovations will not last very long. while people are assets, they are also liabilities and those liabilities add up in costs to a company trying to compete not just locally but globally as well as fending off of the elected vultures that try to pick a bone clean at each opportunity. i have many times suggested that many should start their own business and treat their employee's the way they want others too. the difference is that you are risking your money, your business and your families livelihood. will you eat of of a garbage can so your employees can eat steak? yes or no? if no thenn STFU about it. if yes, then prove it.
