So Elizabeth Warren, the Democrat who is going up against Scott Brown in 2012, had a campaign appearance go viral on the internet last week.
One of the comments she made was: "You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.
Tell that to Gibson Guitars, Ms. Warren. They had the federal government come and seize $1,000,000 worth of materials, finished guitars, and electronic data from two of their factories, without the company being charged with wrongdoing. The DoJ (I refuse to call it by its full name since justice has clearly gone by the wayside), is hiding behind the "ongoing investigation" aegis so they can avoid commenting on the situation. This is the second time the DoJ has stolen property from Gibson and not returned it and is blocking their actions in the court system to resolve the issue.
The problem that Ms. Warren refuses to acknowledge is that the government has become the marauders of which she speaks and they strike at will. Our civil liberties have been eroded to the point where we cannot defend ourselves from them, even in our homes, without fear of further reprisal.
