Man Finds Anti-Capitalist Signs Outside His Business
(FOX 13 TAMPA) – Lahnie Johnson makes no apologies about his politics or his love of country.
br> “We invent things. We manufacture and we export them. So, it’s about the best thing you can do for the economy,” he says.
br> Hard work, ingenuity and sheer gumption helped him turn Acoustiblok, a small soundproofing business, into a multi-million dollar company in just ten years.
br> It’s the kind of success he says that happens only in America. “We’re all about making things, selling them and jobs,” he says.
br> But not everyone shares his line of thought, and someone decided to let him know by scrawling messages about corporate greed on bed sheets, with red spray paint, and tying them to his fence.
br> “It’s like, how dare anybody say free enterprise is good. And it’s great. Capitalism is what made this country,” he says.
br> Johnson knows politics can get pretty heated — after all, he’s a member of the Tea Party. And with the presidential election just months away, the two parties couldn’t be more contentious. But he never expected this. He says he has no idea who did it or why. But he’d sure like to find out.
