A little perspective: officers of Gibson have traditionally supported Republicans.
Gibson Guitar case drags on with no sign of criminal charges
It was seven months ago that federal agents with guns drawn raided the Gibson guitar factories in Nashville and Memphis. A half million dollars worth of Indian rosewood and ebony was seized under the premise that it had been imported illegally. The feds also took a number of guitars and computer hard drives. The factory was shut down for the day and employees told to go home.
Yet after all this time, the Department of Justice has shown no sign that it will file criminal charges against Gibson. Whatâ€™s more â€“ it has been almost 3 years since federal agents first raided Gibson (November 2009), seizing a quantity of wood from Madagascar. No decision on criminal charges in that case either.
My personal grievances: un-justified government intrusion into private industry and the spineless Republicans that fail to retaliate when they get into office.
