It’s incredible how much money companies would save in the long run if they would only check someone the moment they say,

“Maybe no one will notice.”

Accountability on Campaign Promises

It wouldn’t hurt to have an infographic set up in a public-facing venue that tracked progress on campaign promises over the term of a newly elected (or re-elected) President.  Something that could be easily viewed and referenced as a kind of accountability report card for America’s highest office of public service.

Chain of Command

Military folks are probably familiar with one of those public display ‘Chain of Command’ charts, which usually start as a list (toward the bottom) ending up with a photograph of the President at the top.  I’m sure civilian Federal agencies have something similar.  It’s a helpful device because it reminds viewers at a glance:

a) where they fit in the scheme of things


b) to whom even their superiors are accountable

But unless these charts have been modified in recent years I’m here to declare a flaw in their construct, because the person at the top of the chart isn’t supposed to be a General or a Secretary of Defense, a Congressperson or the President…Presiding at the very top of the Chain of Command, whatever the structure of the particular Federal Organization (Defense or otherwise), is the American People.  Any Chain of Command chart that omits this authority contains a fundamental error that needs to be rectified.
