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.

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

Close to half of all illegal immigrants now residing in the U.S. did not enter illegally but rather overstayed their visas. Just as the federal government has historically failed to secure its borders, it has concurrently failed to closely monitor visa holders.

But if anything, President Obama has done more to kick undocumented immigrants out of the U.S. than welcome them in. Those actions have angered immigration advocates and earned the president a reputation as the “deporter-in-chief,” with more than 2 million deportations under his watch. The U.S. passed the milestone just five years into Obama’s tenure, far outpacing the number of deportations during President George W. Bush’s two full terms.

Some conservatives forget, however, that despite the anti-amnesty fervor on the right, the grandfather of amnesty happens to be one of the Republican Party’s most beloved heroes: President Ronald Reagan.

To realize his vision of what he calls "the new America," President George W. Bush proposed a dramatic and sweeping expansion of American immigration policy, including amnesty for an estimated 9 million to 12 million illegal aliens living in the U.S.

Nascarnut....years ago. But as you are aware, the current stable of politicians are the ones that have the power to address the cited concerns.

 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.

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.
