So now we've gone from railing against companies exporting jobs overseas, to REQUIRING companies to export jobs overseas?

Michelle Obama Gives French First Lady a Gibson Guitar (made from "a “choice piece of Indian rosewood.”)...

So did Michelle give Carla Bruni-Sarkozy the Gibson guitar before the first raid/$500K wood confiscation or after it when Obama's DOJ was planning the second armed raid and Indian Rosewood confiscation? Hmmmmm? This is just sick.

Made in Madagascar? Might as well be Made in China, no one would pay prices like for Gibson Made in USA. I suggest a special run of ‘Government Seizure’ guitars, and Tennessee Governor start looking out for jobs in his state.

It's now clear that the "Justice" Department will attack any non-Union businesses and try to destroy them. Likewise, where insufficient Minority employment exists, you can expect FORCED HIRING of un-skilled, un-qualified, un-economicly-viable Obama-worshippers to be implemented.

This is what America has become....join The Party, or else.

Selective enforcement of only PARTS of the Law, to gain votes/favor with Donors and/or the voterbase of the "Progressives".

GET WHITEY!

DOJ Advises Gibson Guitar to Export Labor to Madagascar
Okay. Come on. Stop it. This is from The Onion, right?

'series' Gibson needs to cut a TV Commercial NOW and run it before and after Barry's 'Jobs Speech' (snicker). That'd boost Obama approval rating's to an all time .. LOW.

[Don't worry Barry when you hit ZERO the only way is up.]

Gibson uses mahogany and rosewood from India. They have used this wood (legal) for over 17 years. There was another raid in 2009 (they have yet to get the confiscated wood products back.)
Competitor C F Martin & Co uses the same wood but Chris Martin is a donor to the democratic party, whereas Gibson has supported republicans. The Martin Co has had no action taken against them.
The Gibson company has taken precautions to make sure the wood is legal and approved by both governments.

Maybe this is what Obama’s “jobs speech” is going to be about.

Mark Levin interviewed the Gibson CEO on his show Tuesday night. Amazing what that company is going through. At the end Mark nails it, asks the CEO if Gibson is a union shop - NO, asks if his competitors are union - YES.

I’m still confused on this. I thought the issue was about importing wood from India, so why are the Feds telling them to move their operations to Madagascar? What does Madagascar have to do with India?

This whole affair stinks of International poop.

There is no reason for this. They were raided by 0bama’s DOJ in 2009. The DOJ still has their property from that raid, in which NO CHARGES, or even allegations, have been made to date. They have still not said why they they raided them at that time or this most current raid.

Gibson has meticulous records showing that they were in compliance with every International law, India’s domestic laws, and our our laws. The rumor I hear, from a Music store owner and former Gibson employee, is that this has something to do with Pakistan claiming some kind of Civil Rights violation, if you can believe that.

Gibson is not active in Political activism or donations, I find only that they donated a total of $4000 to the NRSC in 1996.

It seems that every freakin’ facet of our lives is being shredded by 0bama and his criminals-in-suits-henchmen.

Here’s a warning for you that hate us, our traditions, culture and America so badly...if you come to take the wood of my Strat or my Dobro, I’ve got some lead to exchange for them. lol

Geeeez, it isn't like they were running guitars to mariachi bands in Mexico or something....unlike the DOJ with guns to drug cartels.

Holder needs to be given the boot, ASAP, and the rest of these unconstitutional thugs sent packing. Maybe they can be sent to Madagascar instead.

Gibson is nonunion.

In light of the NLRB Boeing case is this a thinly veiled threat to unionize or get out of the U.S. for Gibson's manufacturing?

It's a soviet-style pogrom meant to demoralize and to push our society over the edge. Plain and simple.

We need soeomone to make a call for resistance against this sweeping tyranny before it's too late.

“So now we’ve gone from railing against companies exporting jobs overseas, to REQUIRING companies to export jobs overseas?”

Democrats have been OUTFORCING America’s jobs for 40+ years. What’s new about that??

The 1970 Clean Air Act amendments killed the US Steel Industry, and it’s been downhill ever since.
