It’s Time to Demand Competence
School is back in session, and the Fall sports watching is in full swing! For many, that means Friday night football, followed by Saturday college games, and more football on Sunday. On Monday, everyone is reviewing the film and finding out what went right and what went wrong.
Too bad government doesn’t work that way. In the military, the mission wasn’t complete until the after-action review was done, but in the rest of the government, do they ever review the game film and find out where they failed? Meaning do they look for continuous improvement? It doesn’t seem that way.
It’s Time to Demand Competence

How about the Naperville City Council? They voted overwhelmingly against a long-time business owner because they didn’t like his business. There is no rational argument to close a gun shop because some madman in Texas shot up a school, and the “expert” police failed to take action. The interview with Robert Bevis in the podcast section is a must-listen. All of us should be “up in arms” (dare I say that) over his treatment and the utter stupidity of the Naperville City Council.
We let legislators vote against 100 out of 102 state’s attorneys who are the experts on public safety and pass a law that literally makes second-degree murder a non-detainable offense. At least this state’s attorney is suing over it. The Kankakee State’s Attorney has a lawsuit against the SAFE-T Act as well.
