    I just couldnt watch the whole thing, it puts me in a bad mood.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    The Gibson Raid

    I just heard of this on Hannity. He had the CEO of Gibson, Henry (long polish name) something or other on the show for a very good interview.

    Anyway, the issue is pretty aggravating. Obama needs to speak on this.

    If you don't know what this is about, please read this article and listen to some of the video ( it's almost half an hour long )

    This is bad for Obama while he tries to push his new debt plan

    Their warehouse was raided and their raw materials have been confiscated. How is it ok to interfere with business in America like that? And at the same time push a jobs plan to promote American business.

    there's some tax credits in the jobs plan but it's mostly pay increase and new hire for public sector employees such as firefighters, cops, and school teachers (his fan base).

    the wood that was seized could have been done a thousand different/more appropriate ways. as the CEO states in the videos above they rolled in with full swat crews...simultaneously at their manufacturing facilities (which had the raw materials) AND their corporate headquarters (which had NO raw materials). the CEO mentions also that one of their competitors uses the same raw materials and was not raided.

    who sends in a taskforce with full auto assault rifles to confront a suit and tie?

    someone who's trying to send a message. welcome to facism america!

    I don't get what is going on. What possible purpose could there be to hurting Gibson and why?

    the competitor who wasn't raided for the same said 'illegal materials' is a known democratic contributor whereas Gibson is a known republican contributor.
    im not saying that i believe that to be the reason why Gibson got raided... that's just what was being implied in the clip.
    there could be a legitimate reason as to why they got raided but the means they used was absurd and overkill suggesting intimidation rather than necessary force.

    the real question is why the wood was even on the market. if its a rare/endangered species than why was it allowed to be harvested and brought to market.
    why not raid the distributor rather than the vendor?
    if it became illegal after some new hippy law then why not allow that stock to deplete and then no longer allow the sale of those particular woods. wouldn't it be just wasteful and all in vain if those materials weren't used?
    shouldn't that taskforce be out cracking drug dealer skulls on my tax dollar rather than enforcing some new EPA mandate?

    Michelle Obama gave the first lady of France a Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar in 2009 but the problem is that it may have been made from wood that was illegally obtained. She could be sentenced to 5 years
