Statist Wistful Admiration Of China’s Communist Party Posted By: floppingaces 12/16/2012 3:02:17 PM Flopping Aces, by James Raider Original Article
Let’s take a look at a rather ideal example of someone who would do well to read Confucius – President Obama’s Chairman of Jobs and Competitiveness, Jeffrey Immelt, who moralized on the Charlie Rose Show this past week, . . . .
Immelt: “State-run Communism may not be your cup of tea, but their government works.”
Charlie Rose: “They get things done.”
Well, three cheers for state-run communism. Right? When you instill fear in people to perform your will, you “get things done.” Right Charlie? Charlie may be a herring mindlessly drawn by the statist current which enriches him, but Immelt is not.
