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.

 the hangover Reagan left over immigration reform in 1986 by granting amnesty to nearly 3 million illegal immigrants.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act was pitched as a get-tough moment, with sanctions on employers and beefed-up border control. But it was largely a failure.

We failed at securing our borders, we failed at repelling global terrorism, and we have failed to uphold what has made America strong.

When did we start failing on these fronts??...

it does appear that our democratic leaders find themselves in a bit of a quandry when personal wealth is exposed. but listen the impoverished will find comfort in being told that their political warriors need their own personal wealth to legislate the oppositions wealth for their beleaguered condition.

Absolem, Socialism isn't for the Socialist, Pelosi, Sanders, Reid Obama etc will still live lavishly.

moderation, i would hope that you would agree that capitalism occurs in most cases normally and most of the tenets of socialism must be mandated as it goes against the individual will of many (except for the leeches in society). if anything, i feel that the laws that allow the free flow of ideas and products into the marketplace prevent the dark side of socialism. which is mostly dark IMO. i find it odd that so many democrats hurl with godspeed at psushing socilaistic ideas that they would not be breaking the speed of light to reach their socialistic nirvana that exists in the oppressed regimes around the world. even Fraulein Pelosi appreciates her own brand of personal capitalism.

There are no mandates with capitalism, What have you been forced to do under penalty of law to support Capitalism???

I don't think you understand the meaning of the two terms.

Unions are tools of the left that extract Monies from working people to support a socialist agenda

Unions don't own the work, the shop or the company so there are no " Union jobs".

But they do get a choice ! They can chose to work in a union shop or not to ! What is the reason for one who doesn't want to be in a union to seek a job in a union shop ? Simple really , it better pay and working conditions and better benefits brought about by union leverage ! Your idiocy is saying that you want to reap the benefits that were acquired by a lot of work and effort and never have to lift a finger for it ! That's the typical republican way !

Scott Walker clearly has the right idea, let people choose if they wish to be in a Union or not. Simple really, but as I said, unions cannot thrive on a level playing field, but that's why they attract the "dead weight" of society

I learned as a steward in the IAM that unions are not interested in competing , if they were the best why not? They can only thrive when they stifle competition either by law or intimidation or both. Cowards, stand up and compete on your merits, if you are that good you will get the jobs. GO WALKER
