    I sense a humongous lawsuit coming from Gibson and the taxpayers are going to get shafted as usual for government stupidity- and this one especially was a politically correct kind of stupidity.

    let it happen, sooner or later you get to the point, this needs to happen for the public to finally realize. There is a saying my friend used to say about i dindt stand up when the government went after a certain people, i didnt stand up when the government went after another set and when the government finally came after me, there was no one left to stand with me. I totally butchered it but the saying is as true today as when it was said.

    I believe this is what you're looking for...


    When the Nazis came for the communists,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a communist.

    When they locked up the social democrats,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a social democrat.

    When they came for the trade unionists,
    I did not speak out;
    I was not a trade unionist.

    When they came for the Jews,
    I remained silent;
    I wasn't a Jew.

    When they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out.

    Having looked into their incredibly incompetant management, I could easily see Gibson doing this, either through connivance, or stoopidity.

    Or maybe they just lost the paperwork...

    I don't think the issue is Gibson, as much as I agree with the poor management and lack of quality with their product. I just don't see this wood thing as an issue. It came from India. It seems they want them to move their operations overseas, which would mean less jobs, and would probably cheapen an already declining product.
