The writer is correct; but to Obama who despises the suburbs (and America as she was founded) these 'Unintended Consequences" are precisely what Obama desires. He truly wants to destroy America as we have known it. AND in November we need to politically totally destroy him, his administration and his Senate Democrats.

Correct, the Obamanation isn't stupid or incompetent. He is doing precisely what he said he'd do. He is evil, as are his minions and supporters.

Legislators and regulators need to observe a fundamental Golden Rule: Do not implement new laws if you have not considered or cannot control important unintended consequences.

A perfect example is the Obama Administration’s plan to increase new car mileage standards, from the currently legislated requirement of 35.5 miles per gallon by 2016 to 54.5 mpg by 2025, as an average across each automaker’s complete line of cars and light trucks.

Carmakers reluctantly agreed to the new requirements, to avoid even more onerous standards, or different standards in different states. But the deal does nothing to alter the harsh realities...
