Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
From what I have heard, all of the Guitar makers have to buy their wood from an approved
consortium provider. The provider certifies the wood comes from approved sources.
We can call them woodmart! Gibson, Martin, Alvarez, ect all get their wood from woodmart,
but Gibson's purchase is somehow found to be in violation. All of the other makers use the same source,
but none of their factories were raided, and none of their profits were impacted.
The law only works, when it is applied equally to all.(That's why the statue of Justice has a blindfold on!)
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
