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:
C) The United States of America
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?
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable
one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore,
all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
