UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: The result of short-sighted, shallow-thinking politicians implementing a straight-forward, simple, wrong solution to a symptom instead of a problem. This results in the implementation of another straight-forward, simple, wrong solution to a symptom producing more unintended consequences, and so on... Because their intentions are good, they mean well, try hard and want to help people the politicians will never allow themselves to recognize the true problem is the politicians themselves.

Like most people, I’m a sucker for a heartwarming story around the holidays.

Sometimes, you get that nice feeling when good things happen to good people, like you find at the end of a classic movie like “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

But since I’m a bit of a curmudgeon, I also feel all warm and fuzzy when bad things happen to bad people.

That’s why I always smile when I read stories about taxpayers moving across borders, thus preventing greedy tax-hiking politicians from collecting more revenue.
