Im a little more cynical,
The new guy wins the election and wants to get whats his
Looks around and sees a mine making lots of money
wants money as quickly as possible...
Kills the golden goose..
Why do people rob banks? Because that's where the money is.
Stating the obvious
It's called Sutton's Law, a process taught in medical schools to help doctors make decisions. Sutton's Law dictates that you should choose the most likely diagnosis and test for that first, rather than tracking a more unlikely cause. Oddly enough, the name for this disease-determining detective work comes from a thief who made his living robbing banks.
Willie Sutton committed his first bank heist in 1925 in Ozone Park, NY. His life's work would land him on the FBI's Most Wanted List, bring him $2 million dollars, put him in prison for 33 years, (which included additional time because he kept escaping), six years in hiding and four years of parole. When asked why he robbed banks, Willie is credited with replying, “because that's where the money is.”
Sutton's Law had been born. (Even though he later denied saying it.)
