    So true... so true.
    That is very much my take as well. And as discussed ad-nauseum, the government has enormous leeway with imported flora and fauna. We know from the Keystone Pipeline that the current administratin puts enormous value on its eco-voters.

    Based on the limited knowledge you have demonstrated of this case, I'm not surprised you would come to that conclusion.

    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!)

    You have no more knowledge on this case than I or anyone else, suggesting your superiority is laughable on multiple levels. You're faith in eco-nazi bullying is sickening. All I want is a day in court for Gibson --- 4 years to wait is excessive.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.
