Author David Michaelson shares a bit of his thinking regarding the integrity (or lack thereof) of the U.S. Congress. Let me say that it takes few pages for him to accomplish his mission. To quote his title page, this book is “a satirical insight into Congressional behavior written by a disgruntled author with an opinion shared by countless American taxpayers.” David Michaelson shares his pet peeves regarding Congress, and suspects that readers will share his thoughts and opinions. Readers who agree with his thinking will find the humor in his satirical approach to this subject. Others may or may not; readers will need to determine that for themselves. It rings of satire.

The average American taxpayer was once considered to be a member of the most powerful collective in the United States. How did the awesome power of the vote slip away from concerned citizens and become second banana to the United States Congress? Complacency, sprinkled with a liberal dose of apathy has slowly allowed the shift of power from the people to our elected legislators. Has greed, power, and the desire for wealth fueled a runaway train threatening to derail our Founder's image of the American way of life? Integrity is defined as doing the right thing at the right time, a quality many of our esteemed members of Congress often fail to accomplish.
