Gibson Guitar was raided by federal agents apparently looking for evidence that it imported wood from India allegedly in violation of Indian export laws. If Obama wants to be take seriously about creating and protecting jobs, he'd do better by telling Holder to knock it off. As Instapundit notes, "You know, if you just move those jobs overseas you don’t have to worry about this kind of thing."

Why is the U.S. enforcing India's export laws when it won't enforce our own immigration laws? America is becoming less and less a republic than an oligarchy of environmentalists and PC police.

UPDATE: Gibson's CEO is a Republican donor, while the CEO of their competitor Martin is a Democrat donor. Martin uses the same wood, but hasn't been raided.

I hope the feds have a better explanation than we've heard so far.

UP-UPDATE: If you thought it couldn't get worse, you're wrong.

Watching Galaxy Invader, a truly hilarious creature feature in the spirit of Ed Wood. The first extraterrestrial crash lands on earth and gets hunted down by a bunch of rednecks. If you want to see the left's idea of who turned out with the tea parties, this is it.

Bill Keller is calling for "Asking Candidates Tougher Questions About Faith." Sounds like a good opportunity to revisit the beliefs preached by Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Also, I'd like to see a public discussion about the quasi-religion known as liberalism and progressivism, of which Mr. Keller seems to be an acolyte.

I watched a strange movie last night called Red Planet Mars expecting some more 1952 style monsters or special effects. Instead, it was about religion. It starred Peter Graves as a radio astronomer who claimed to be getting intelligent responses to his signals to Mars.

The messages claim that Mars feeds its population on far less land and doesn't need coal, oil or gas. Everything runs of some kind of nuclear power. This sets off an inexplicable economic shock wave on Earth apparently on the belief that we will just get the new technology for free, or something.

Then the messages begin to refer to a supreme being, God, and admonish Earth to return to the principles in the Sermon on the Mount. This news brings down the Soviet Union in a manner that reminded me uncannily of the events of 1989 and 1990, when that very thing happened.

The film is now owned and distributed by Cheezy Flicks Entertainment.
