Ron Johnson: Communist China is where it's at

Economic central planning FTW

Said Ron Johnson on Wisconsin radio, "[Casino mogul Steve Wynn is] also creating resorts in Macau in China, communist China. And his point is, the level of uncertainty, the climate for business investment is far more certain in communist China than it is in the U.S. here."

It's true, there are even more federal grants and subsidies available in Communist China (where many of Johnson's customers reside).

Apparently Ron Johnson's point is, for all Obama's efforts to turn the U.S. into Communist China, there's still nothing like the real thing.

No wonder State Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus wants everybody to please stop talking about Ron Johnson. The next thing you know, he's going to want Ron Johnson himself to stop talking.*

Hi, I'm Mao Zedong, and I approved this message.

* Only kidding. They were wishing for that months ago.

What makes Macau so attractive is that gambling there was legalized relatively recently, so Wynn had the chance to get in on the ground floor (no hotel puns intended). By that reasoning, Ron Johnson should be advocating for the legalization of marijuana, because it would open up new markets and create a terrific climate for business investment here in Wisconsin.

It stands to reason.

Looks like Ronnie is having an Animal Farm moment.
