Investors Business Daily ^ | 09/27/2013 | James Detar

Posted on 09/27/2013 12:04:01 PM PDT by Rusty0604

Although details were initially sketchy, Lumber Liquidators' (LL) stock price plunged as much as 10% early Friday after a reported raid by federal investigators on its headquarters related to a probe of illegal imports.

In a statement, the top flooring retailer with more than 300 stores nationwide, said it would provide to investigators information and documents related to the import of certain products.

The Department of Homeland Security, along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Department of Justice conducted the raid, acting under a sealed court-issued warrant.

And Christian Radio.

They are a good source of fine wood flooring.

The government is going after its enemies and is out of control.

We can rest assured LL did not donate to the rat party.

It is probably over.

No, it’s in control alright. Welcome to Communism where any disagreement or idea unlike theirs is met with force. No dissension allowed. Period.

It will only get worse. Look at history. May God Help us!

thats been my exposure to their advertising.

I suspect that further word will be forthcoming.

No enquiries as to the possible POLITICAL Nature of this action..have been made of the company on its facebook page as yet.

Shares of Lumber Liquidators were down about 8% in Friday morning trading on the stock market today.

perhaps the raid has already begun to have its expected affect on business....

I know the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is really interested in imported lumber.

I do business with these guys through the company I work for. I’ve been told they are very good people. My experience on the periphery confirms that.

DHS gestapo raiding a flooring store? Anyone else think DHS needs to be shut down immediately.

We did fine without them and had we had a president who would defend the country OBL would have been arrested instead of being left to plot 9/11.

The letters are different but I defy anyone to show any difference between DHS and the KGB.

Same headcount as the USMC and TWICE their budget.

3,000 MRAPs and 1.7 billion rounds of ammo.

73 federal agencies now carry arms --Dept of Education has a SWAT team.

Even the Library of Congress has a SWAT team.

WHAT WOULD THE FRAMERS THINK OF THIS?

I was wondering about those blue stripes too. DHS must now be an arm of the UN. They need blue helmets too.

"What is with the blue guns in that photo?"

Inert training aids are frequently made/painted bright blue to differentiate them from actual weapons/munitions:

The blue gun in the photo are for training, they shoot a simunition round, a bit more accurate then paint ball. It has the consistency of lipstick. The bright blue lets you know someone didn’t bring a real gun to training.

Look at it from their perspective. Busting a law abiding company is a lot safer than doing something like patrolling Chicago streets.

I thought Homeland Security was supposed to protect us from terrorists. Is Lumber Liquidators a terrorist organization? I guess if they advertise on Conservative Radio and Fox News they are.

Gee, did any of their SWAT teams get to fire any of the 3,000,000,000 hollow point bullets they've got stored for just such events?
