I am purging my Facebook account of everything I ever wrote that was critical of Mr. President. Barack Obama is the greatest President who ever lived.
Oh, and 20% 0f ObamaCare waivers came from Nancy Pelosi's voting district, but she is just plain wonderful for taking care of the little people like that.
If there's any integrity in the Judiciary, the investigation will be slapped down, and the DoJ lawyers who asked for the warrants will be heavily sanctioned.
If there's any courage in the Congress, they'll impeach and convict the judge that issued the warrants, since s/he has violated his/her oath of office: I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
Enforcing foreign law is not supporting and defending the Constitution.
I read the sarcasm in TH and tyree; however, this sort of behavior makes it impossible for me to support any organization or person other than those that oppose the Progressives.
It is quit obvious to me that you did not get the message---There is NO rule of law in America.
The Birth Certificate. No one cares about the eligibility of Barack Obama. No one in the Gov is investigating his obvious forgery of a birth certificate.
There is no rule of law in America. Anything goes now. Everything is legal if you have power. Another blogger has pointed out that BO does not give speeches anymore with an American Flag in the background.
It is quite obvious that the game ended a long time ago and you're all way behind the eight ball. It's over.
Well, I bought my two Martin guitars back in the 1960's, so I'm not about to burn them and buy Gibson's in solidarity. On the other hand, it is past time for Eric Holder to be hit over the head with a Gibson solid body electric. Maybe Peter Townshend would be willing to reprise his guitar-smashing act on Holder's shit-for-brains noggin?
What an interesting tussle. Unbeknownst to me, the Feds have been chasing down instruments made of illegal materials, with "legality" determined by environmental NGO lobbying all over the world no doubt, and seizing them. It matters not if the instrument is old or new, they are seized by governments..
I wonder how David Linley, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, guitar collectors all and enviro-crazies too, feel about this particular worm turning on them?
This way, perhaps:
"Last year, Dick Boak, director of artist relations for C.F. Martin & Co., complained to Mother Nature News about the difficulty of getting elite guitarists to switch to instruments made from sustainable materials. "Surprisingly, musicians, who represent some of the most savvy, ecologically minded people around, are resistant to anything about changing the tone of their guitars," he said."
What a shock! Environmental concerns end when it starts affecting their livelihoods!
Just like Algore thinks it fine he owns five houses and music and movie stars travel by private jet, the hypocrisy of the "fewer personal liberties for thee, not me" crowd is astounding.
Actually, this stems from a 2008 audit which uncovered details that Gibson was in violation of the Lacey Act, which combats trafficking in “illegal” wildlife, fish, and plants.
The 2008 Farm Bill (the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008), effective May 22, 2008, amended the Lacey Act by expanding its protection to a broader range of plants and plant products. The Lacey Act now, among other things, makes it unlawful, beginning December 15, 2008, to import certain plants and plant products without an import declaration.
The CEO of Gibson, who is on board of Rainforest Alliance, which supports the Lahey Act, has been on leave from the Alliance since 2009 due to allegations of illegal activity in violation of the Lacey Act.
Anon thinks he/she has come up with a "cool" angle that spells doom for the good guys. As Dawnfire points out, none of what he/she posted contracts the article. In addition, assuming everything that anon wrote is true:
1) Why haven't Martin Guitars been hit with the same treatment? They use the same wood from the same location.
2) If this is a matter of filling out paperwork, why didn't someone from the government tell them that, before armed officers raided the place? It sure seems like the Feds want to drive more of our manufacturing offshore.
