What a great country that we can devote these expensive resources to protecting the tiger habitat.

(Did the LL folks donate to Republicans?)

The papers also have the names and cell phone numbers of the agents involved.

That could be handy information after TSHTF.

Lumber Liquidators must not be a union shop or they did not donate to Zer0s campaign.

Waiting for the IRS to chime in.

Conflict Minerals. Seriously, look it up - “Conflict Minerals”. The new Sarbanes-Oxley and Obamacare pretending to protect us from inadvertently sponsoring terrorism.

When I was on tour in Alaska a few weeks ago, the guide joked that the first Target store sign to go up lasted less than an hour before it was shot out.

Comforting to know that scarce, expensive government resources are being used to go after wood sellers, and not after the people who murdered our ambassador in Benghazi.

“On Thursday Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations executed search warrants at the Lumber Liquidator’ s Virginia headquarters in Toano.”

They deserved it. As a contractor who has done business
with theses clowns, Lumber Liquidator’ s deserves all the
grief they get if not put out of business.

That’s because the people supplying wood to Lumber Liquidators are more dangerous to “Mother Earth” than the the terrorists are to America. America is only important as long as it can sacrifice soldiers lives and taxpayer wealth to the greater good.

There's always two sides to a story, although when the govt is involved, they're usually the culprits.

It would be of some interest if you could give us a couple of examples, since the support expressed is in favor of this company.

"That would be a violation of the "Lacey Act," which combats trafficking of "illegal" wildlife, fish and plants."

First of all, who the hell is Lacey, and why does she have a Federal Act named after her? Secondly, does wood flooring really fall into the category of plant? Come on...it's not like your importing the tree itself. Seems the Feds are being a little loose with their interpretation of the law.

“After a raid on a lumber business near Richmond, Virginia, ,,,”

Nazis. Even their name “homeland security” sounds Nazi. The whole purpose of this damned organization was to prevent another 911. It was not to enforce laws about the importation of lumber.

Guess they are trying to make up for missing the Boston bombers.

Whatever. If they were unsatisfactory to use, then let people know, contact the BBB, sue them, etc etc.

But using DHS stormtroopers in SWAT gear to fish for evidence of a violation of where a piece of wood came from, is downright Un-American.

Welcome to the new America. EPA, National Park Service, IRS and probably any agency you can think of has their own SWAT team at their disposal. We now have a militarized Bureaucracy.

NBC12 uncovered information that says the reason for this raid is that protected wood was being illegally imported. The investigation reveals that the wood species is part of the habitat of the highly endangered Siberian tiger.

Only government drones must be intelligent enough to understand why wood from Russia is so important to the Siberian tiger habitat and why would raiding a legitimate American business would stop the Russians from harvesting it...to export to the Chinese...

There must be political undertones to this raid...

Wikipedia:

Conflict minerals are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, mostly in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, by the Congolese National Army, and various armed rebel groups, including the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP), a proxy Rwandan militia group.

The looting of the Congo’s natural resources is not limited to domestic actors; during the Congo Wars, Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi particularly profited from the Congo’s resources. These governments have continued to smuggle resources out of the Congo to this day.

The profits from the sale of these minerals finance continued fighting in the Second Congo War, and control of lucrative mines becomes a focus of the fighting as well.

The most commonly mined minerals are cassiterite, wolframite, coltan, and gold, which are extracted from the Eastern Congo, and passed through a variety of intermediaries before being purchased by multinational electronics companies.

These minerals are essential in the manufacture of a variety of devices, including consumer electronics such as mobile phones, laptops, and MP3 players.

The extraction and sale of blood diamonds, also known as “conflict diamonds”, is a better-known phenomenon which occurs under virtually identical conditions.

Ah OK, I believe the article was talking about wood supposedly culled from an endangered species habitat not conflict diamonds funneling money to terrorists or strategic minerals, and the point I believe we were making is that this seems like a huge expenditure of resources to probably go after a company like Gibson that doesn’t cowtow to Zero.

Wikipedia. Really?

I know this story may not be specifically related to Conflict Minerals or SOX but it’s the same tired story different chapter. When I read it I totally expected HS to use Conflict Minerals as their excuse for the raid. I’m guessing many people haven’t heard about Conflict Minerals...yet. It’s coming and will put more American companies out of business. That’s pretty much Obama’s whole agenda, right? There’s a LOT to it, but here’s a place to start if you’re interested...

All warranties are covered by the installer. In Texas there
are places you cant glue solid hardwood to a concrete slab.
There is just too much moisture, no matter what kind of
moisture barrier you put down the wood will always cup.
Even after a calcium chloride test shows too much moisture in the slab they still expect you to install Bellawood solid
wood flooring instead of a more stable engineered wood
flooring. When one fails they don’t tell you until they owe
you money and then it’s “Tear out and reinstall at your
expense or loose the money they owe you and preferred
installer status”. They push Bellawood solid flooring knowing in some cases it fails and then they put all the
expense of replacement on the installer even when the
installer tells them there is too much moisture in the
slab. Then they replace it with engineered like the
installer suggested in the first place. I got lucky and
got out without too much loss but some installers ended
up in court getting sued. The only thing that saved my
butt was having the customer sign off on the moisture
content and that it might fail and that’s what got me
kicked off the installers pool. I never had a floor fail
and I have a good track record with my customers. I’ll
be damned if I’ll have some chicken$it outfit like Lumber
Liquidators dragging me down. They deserve what they get
for hiring wetbacks and what they have done to good
installers.

Not to speak of their Muslim outreach programs and crony contracts with Bammy insiders.
