Bain's Guitar Center is the Walmarts of the Musical Instrument industry!!! Bain's greed has destroyed this industry by eliminating all of the GREAT locally owned music stores across this nation. America has allowed the uber rich to monopolize and take away the American Dream. Then once that is done the Private Equity Firms like Bain suck every dime of equity from what is left of the company and leaves the debt on the Balance Sheet and the company goes Bankrupt. But Bain and their Vulture Capitalist already have their millions in their pockets. They could care less!!! When will America stop wake up and realize they are voting in a feudalistic America. Please stop voting against your own best interest. Stop drinking the Kool Aid that the Uber Rich actually care about you???

Hey Dan,

Do you realize that GC started back in the '60s and was a nationwide behemoth long before Bain had anything at all to do with it? Bain and GC hooked up in 2007.

If you don't want to vote for Romney that's your business, but at least be man enough to tell the truth and know your facts about business before spewing such ignorance. Parroting the false stories of others is really lame. Do some research at genuine sources.

I don't shop there, but I have shopped elsewhere. I play drums and guitar and I'm looking to start a band. I already have the name picked out, but I don't want to share it becuase I don't want to take a chance that someone will take it from me.

I also bought an amp recently, a peavey, but not at guitar center. I bought it at a really good music store in fort lauderdale.

Okay, the name of my band is really cool. I think it's catchy.

anyway, please call me dick.

Is this post an insult to Romney? Oh yeah, he is one of those republican morons. I don't like republicans, they are vicious and disgusting and they don't even like hot cocoa. Personally, I think Romney was a joke, so are all the republicans. They should all be fired, and exported a sinking island.

Roses are red, republicants are red too,they can kiss my butt, and smell my doodoo.

I walked into guitar center and all the guitar were made in China. Even the Gibson's. Mitt Romney was sweeping the floor, it was the only job he was able to get. I asked him where the guitar picks were and then I kicked him in his nuts.

He fell to the floor and cried like a little girl. Then he had an accident and the doody leaked all over the floor. What a pansy. I proceeded to urinate on him and he vomited because I had eaten asparagus. So there he was, soaked in doody and urine and crying like a baby. That is where all republicans belong.

Now, stop whining romney and sweep that floor you piece of garbage.

Harsh words commander, but I liked them. very well articulated.

I can never string a sentence together that cleverly and brilliantly. Oh wait, I just did.

And now, for discussions about ketchup, oranges and tuna on rye, with mustard and pickels and lima beans.

my thought is, ichhhh, that's gross.

Oh, and please call me Dick.

Obama is on the left
Romney on the right
lets put them in a boxing ring
so we can see a fight

I think the way it would go
Obama would knock out that schmo
then that schmo would wet his pants
because he never had a chance

Obama is the better man
of that there is no doubt
lets say we take the republicans
and throw them all out

now I end this writing
as I am tired and disturbed
by dumb stupid conservatives
man, they have some nerve

they wanna run this country
they think the own this place
but I must disagree
and I'd smack them in their face

let them get back in the closet
and grab each others parts
and screw each others brains out
and they will cut a fart

you republicans will never run this country
but we all know that you wanna
you will always lose the race
to someone like Obama.

I came here for guitar center news and all I got was you old farts going political. Just a heads up the locally own shops are horrible. Ran by jerks that has nothing but cheap supplies...I travel 45 min south to get good equipment at the guitar center in West Palm.
I understand where y'all are coming from saying the big chain is destroying the local stores, but our local stores are bad
I am the one who knocks

I've seen better poems, but I've also seen worse. Not a bad effort.

I can also put a poem together
and it will knock off your socks
but you have to remember
I am the one who knocks
