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: why would you support the elimination private ballot voting for Union Recognition Votes? Why in the world you do you think Card Check is a good idea vs. a fair vote using private Ballot?

Group intimidation is a reality anytime it can be used unchecked.(pardon the pun)

OWO: This is what unions want: They want the so-called Employee Free Choice Act, aka “Card Check”, which would take away numerous rights and protections currently afforded to workers employed at companies where unions are actively seeking to organize. The bill would remove workers’ rights to a federally supervised private ballot election. Instead, workers would be asked to sign cards in front of organizers and colleagues, potentially subjecting them to harassment or intimidation. Once a majority of employees have signed cards, the union is immediately recognized.

Please note the part about "would take away numerous rights and protections currently afforded to workers "

YAHOO NEWS: The Assembly Labor Committee, six days after the Senate Labor Committee held a similar hearing, heard testimony into the night on the bill that would ban any requirement that nonunion members in the private sector pay union dues. (the gist)

Kristi LaCroix, a former teacher from Kenosha, testified in favor of the measure saying workers should have the option to pay dues, rather than being required to do so. (positive-view)

John Drew, a United Auto Workers representative from Milwaukee, said approving the bill would allow non-union employees to become freeloaders, as they would receive union benefits without paying dues. (negative view)

Randy Bryce, a former Democratic state Senate candidate and member of the Ironworkers Local 8 union who was removed from the Senate gallery last week for yelling during debate, called the bill a "blatant political attack" and government intrusion into private business. (never run a business view, government intrusion already abou
