    Police Chief: "Uh let's see. Crack dealers on street corners. Illegal aliens selling burritos. I know! Let's raid Gibson Guitars!"

    Some "justice system" eh?

    "Whatever the specious merits of the government’s investigation, the broader lesson is that federal regulatory authority is so expansive and vague, it enables corrupt bureaucrats to intimidate and punish nearly any honest business that falls under Washington’s crosshairs"


    Scary shit




    Tyranny if I ever saw it.

    This raid and the Air Force leading the raid on that gun store in Vegas should have everyone's hairs standing up on the back of their necks.

    Don't listen to that self-loathing Jew's radio show of hatred and ignorance, Infidel - most 11 year old boys are more mature than he is.

    And anyone who believes that Obama is targeting businesses who contribute to Republicans is a moron.

    One question I haven't seen answered in this thread: was the wood illegal or not?

    Just punishing the terrorists.

    The Gibson Guitar Saga Gets Steadily Curiouser | Power Line

    Unless you believe the DOJ actually chose to go after Gibson because the owner is a Republican, and ignore Martin doing the same thing becuase the owner is a Democrat. But we all know the government never politicizes anything.
