raid on Gibson Guitar

Can do document that the agents who conducted this search had guns in their hands? If not, why do you believe something you don't have reasonable grounds to accept as true?

Q: Which is the number one manufacturing nation in the world?
Is the answer:
A) China B) Japan C) The United States of America D) Luxembourg

The way it works is if you want other nations to adhere to treaties on imports and exports and environmental protection and so on you have to demonstrate that you will enforce those laws and agreements too even if it impacts companies in your own nation. The notion that for some reason the Obama administration if obsessed with the idea of protecting jobs in India just as part of their general wickedness is so laughably childish that anyone promoting it ends up looking like a clown. I saw one right-wing blogger claim the Obama administration is actively hostile to any successful business and that's why Gibson was raided--talk about rampaging paranoia. Meanwhile a long list of other companies that make guitars in America and also rely on imported rosewood, ebony etc. haven't been raided. So is that because they adhere to the law and properly document their imports, or is it because (as some folks would have you believe) all those other companies are run by Democratic supporters? Which explanation is more credible (to someone with a reasonable mind)?

Do you think that any company should get a pass on allegedly falsifying import documents about the nature of the products they are bringing in? Keep in mind that the previous raid was about Gibson importing wood from Madagascar that at the time wasn't supposed to be exported from there at all--kind of looks like a pattern, doesn't it.

Sure, the CEO of Gibson giving $3,500 to a couple of Republican candidates would obviously have triggered all of this [rolls eyes].

Absolutely, trying to force American companies to send jobs overseas is clearly what the govt. is trying to do, it's all part of their overall wicked un-Americanism, but that's what happens when you elect a black Muslim from Kenya, right?

Bullshit. What it boils down to is some prick in Fish and Wildlife protecting HIS turf. Remember, Harry J. Anslinger, Jr. was the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. He insured his success by "finding" a huge drug problem: criminalizing marijuana after four years on the job.

Occam's razor. You guys are all over the map with conspiracy theories (which seem to wind up blaming that "Kenyan"). My "conspiracy theory" is a lot simpler; only one layer: some prick who wants a flashy raid to make him look successful.
Anslinger was the object lesson of how this works, not a change of subject.

I'm wondering what U.S. Fish and Game Wardens have to do with Indian lumber. Where'd he get that?

So what it really boils down to the Obama regime finding an excuse to use the government, any government, to try and destroy whomever disagrees with your socialist agenda.
