Comments: It's Turned To "11"! Run!

It seems mysterious to some people why their competitor Martin Guitar has never had any such problems with the feds, even though they both use exactly the same materials.

If you look at opensecrets.org and search for Gibson Guitar and Martin Guitar the mystery starts to disappear.

There are medications for obsessive/compulsive disorder, I'm wondering when we'll see meds for control freak disorder.

It was a political raid. Check out donations made to the Democrat party by each Guitar maker and you will have your answer as to why the raid took place. Its called a shakedown.

I guess what it boils down to is this: the Obama administration has made it crime to be a Republican or contribute to Republican causes...is that about the size of it????
