As much as FOXED SPEWS is trying to blame the OBAMA administration for raiding the Gibson guitar company twice, what they and the talking heads fail to mention is the law that Gibson violated. First of all, lets look at the law. Its called the "LACEY ACT of 1900". It has been amended several times to expand its coverage, and it was last modified during the BUSH administration by BUSH to include types of WOODS. https://web.archive.org/web/20110806220424/http://www.internationalparrotletsociety.org/lacey.html Obama has nothing to do with the law, its expansion or enforcement. Gibson was warned during the BUSH administration over its importing of woods from INDIA and surrounding countries. The law itself spells out that any attempt of falsifying the labeling of wood products (ie: sawn ebony wood is banned but labeled as oak) Gibson is in trouble with two countries, India and the USA. Gibson broke Indias law on exporting unfinished wood, and Gibson broke the law here by importing wood falsely labeled. This investigation goes back to the Bush DOJ and its the Obama DOJ who are handling the case now. "it is not in anyway odd for the U.S. to enforce the law of another country. Moreover, the affidavit below claims a series of false or misleading statements in the documentation related to this shipment. The agent details what is alleged to be “fraudulently” labeled wood that is an attempt to evade an Indian ban on exports of unfinished wood. "" The republicans are trying to make this an "obama" inspired problem to kill jobs, but thats just not true. Gibson knew what it was doing, and knew the risks they were taking when they continued to import the banned wood. Indeed, they make great guitars, but the law is the law. The republicans plan to have the owner of Gibson Guitars sitting in John Boehners box during Obamas speech in order to parade him on the mis information tour. The republicans will stoop to whatever levels they have to , even if it means going under the sewer to play politics with Obama. What a joke. Peace.
