Gibson guitars made of wood seized in raids are sold out

Page 2 of 3  


Just out of interest's sake, was Gibson forced to make any changes to their suppliers of construction materials?
Considering that the DOJ thought they had sufficient reason to go after Gibson for illegal use of certain woods, what's to stop the DOJ from coming after Gibson again in the future?

The legal system in this country is indeed a fucked up thicket of extortionate practices, where participants are taught to game it to the max, and a proliferation in the use of the ever increasing number of law enforcements agencies to push political and corporate agendas has shifted the concept of 'justice' away from the individual citizen to those in power.

Nothing. Especially is the owner of Gibson continues to donate large amounts of money to Republican election campaigns.
Have you not been paying attention to the news the last 5 years? Neither legality nor "sufficient reason" have *anything* to do with the Obama DOJ's and IRS's targeting of Republicans and Conservatives. It is a grossly corrupt misuse of power and violation of the public trust and there are no apologies or admission coming from this administration.
The only "sufficient reason" needed by the Holder's DOJ is that someone is supporting the other side.

Stand back and watch - the new Surgeon General, if confirmed, will soon be in control of anti-gun/anti-2nd Amendment efforts; through schools by kids being required to answer questions about whether there are guns in their homes (IOW, report on their parents); and by doctors requiring the same question be answered by patients before treatment under ACA.
Freedom in this country is fast becoming nothing more than a mouthed perception in the last decade.

I'm Canadian. The only US news I really pay attention to is the news that I feel might have an effect on Canada. On occasion, I might read something else that's US centric, but my eyes usually gloss over when reading US news.

You might want to pay more attention. The US is the only thing that has kept you guys from becoming an occupied territory of Russia or China for the past century. As the US begins its slow, slip down the slope to socialism, and China owns more and more and more of our money and property, it's only a matter of time before this great experiment in Democracy falls under the noses or a collective citizenry who's memory of history only goes back to the last election.

Sure, I'm aware of that. But, if or when it happens, it will be several hundred years before it gets to that point. The US is currently, the world's only existing super power. Despite ongoing woes, I'd expect that position to be one of the last things that the US would give up. War, or the threat of war is very effective when it comes to building economies. The threat of Russia moving into Canada and becoming a border threat to the US would mobilize your country like never before.
Anyway, we'd willingly become a part of the US by choice long before we'd let our country be taken over by Russian invasion.

Paranoia? All this shit's public information, Lew? Get your head out of the sand. This isn't some conspiracy-nut BS trumped up by mere psychotic speculation. Every IRS and DOJ investigation is public info and well documented by the press, both left and right. Where the hell have you been hiding?
