Atlantic City Casinos Closed

Once again, we get a shining example of why government is an impediment to pretty much anything good or productive in the world. This morning, all of the casinos in Atlantic City, NJ, were ordered to close their gaming floors. This is the first time ever that the casinos have had to close. Why did they have to close? Because the state legislature and governor can’t agree on a budget. Why should this cause the casinos to close? Because they can’t operate without state goons onsite to “monitor” what goes on. Since the state government has no budget, and is effectively closed down, there are no overseers to oversee the casino operations. Thus, because the state government can’t get its s**t together, the casinos have to close and lose millions of dollars. And there are those of you who want even more government.

MSNBC has the story.

  1. The current administration, supposedly Republican, has done a wonderful job of creating bigger government. You voted for em too.

  2. Yeah, I know. I’ve said numerous times that Bush is not a conservative, neither are most of the Republicans in the Congress. But there’s not a chance I’d want Democrats in charge, so what am I gonna do? I used to be a Libertarian, but there’s not a chance in hell of that party ever gaining any sort of power, and their stance on illegal immigration is bad for the country.
    But as for the New Jersey situation, you’ll notice that everyone in government who is involved is a Democrat.
