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.

Stillhere, it was interesting to read that Volvo is owned by a chinese holding company but that management is largely european. the BMW plant has done pretty well being in South Carolina...i do think that Charleston is better suited fo many reasons. but then again...neither asked for my opinion.

On top of that social security is a " socialist" program , so you of course wont accept checks from them !

Then why didn't you give up your so called "stewardship" ? And you can whine all you want , you're still talking about 13% of the workforce ! Unions aren't what they once were !

You see MOD, my issues with unions is that they have become political tools and have been for quite a while. Their support of a socialist society and left wing causes championed by democrats is at the heart of my critique.

OWO....you may make mention of the new Volvo plant that will be built in South Carolina. it will be interesting to see the how's and why's of the potential unionization of the expected 2-4 thousand workers. that juicy fruit may be too hard for them not to doggedly persue.

Obviously the same can be said about our president who you and your fellow whiners have mercilessly slammed for the last 7 years ! You aren't always going to get your way ! That's something you should have learned in kindergarten ! Maybe you did but in your angst of losing an election you've chosen to ignore it !

I couldn't care less if a group of people want to organize themselves but I don't think hey should be able to take with them those that don't, do you MOD?

That's really it in a nutshell MOD, the majority does not take away the rights of the minority.

Yet the troll surely wouldn't turn down the better benefits and working conditions simply because he maybe wasn't the worker he says he is !

This from a anti-union shop steward !I feel sorry for those good union people who were served poorly by a character of ill repute !

The best worker shouldn't make the same money as the worst

The simple majority should not require the minority to support politicians and causes they are opposed to

Not at all, why would that be any more chaotic than what we have now?

Your "for" results in chaos and a constant state of, shall I say it(?), anarchy.

I'm for real choice not the tyranny of the majority

No Mod those who wish to organize should and those that don't want to should not be forced to

Out rights are not collectives, why should anyone be forced to join a union that works against their values?
