Well I certainly can't risk being "Uncool" with a capital "U". You sir were clearly the masterdebator of your primary school. Obviously your only argument, the only possible retort, is that Gibson was never brought to trial which is why you repeat it and never use any of the seized Gibson documents. In the end, you ignore the documenation because if you have read it then you know there is nothing there to help you and if you haven't read it then you probably still know there is nothing there to help you. So we both know that Gibson knowingly imported illegal Madagascar ebony and if that puts me at risk of being "Uncool" in Candyland then so be it.

Actually, you have proven, all by yourself, to be well beyond the "risk" stage of being uncool; and totally ignorant of the facts of the issue as well.
What the liberal mindset refuses to accept, because the facts don't fit their warm fuzzy "save the forest/save the children" mindset, is that while the "finger blanks", sold to Gibson by a third party supplier, were indeed "illegal" under Madagascar's export laws, they were NOT "illegal", as liberals like to imply, because they were somehow on an endangered species list.
The "finger blanks", subject of the DOJ's charges, were deemed "illegal" specifically because they were not "finished", IN THICKNESS, to the proper dimensions by LABOR from the exporting country.
It is an inarguable fact that a difference in dimension of the incriminating Madagascar ebony "finger blanks" (ingeniously called "lumber" in the infamous affidavit, for greater effect) of approximately -1/8" would have made the transaction "legal for export" under Madagascar's LABOR laws.
A fact which begs the question as to WTF would the DOJ take it upon themselves to enforce the LABOR laws of another country, except that it gave them a convenient, albeit nefarious, excuse to exert political power?
What we had here is a perverse use of an American law, the Lacey Act, in part for for political reasons, and justified not by the preservation of an endangered species for which the law was originally intended, but, in effect, to enforce the protectionist LABOR laws of another country.
That unarguable fact is specifically outlined in the original, and only, affidavit used as justification for the charges against Gibson, as well as for the warrant resulting in the SWAT team action ... BUT, you'd have to read it to know that, something you have amply proven yourself to have not done.
The endangered species mantra/illusion of "illegal Madagascar ebony", of which you so uncooly seem fond of repeating, is nothing but red herring buzz words used to make liberals feel good about their peculiar mental deficiency when it comes to basing their controlling political tendencies on how they feel, instead of on facts.
You would have done well to have better informed yourself before attempting rebuttal had you wished to keep that self delusion of somehow being Mr. "Cool" intact ... a bit too late now, Bubba.
