WHERE DID MY AMERICA GO? - By Michael Solomo
n, Published by: AuthorHouse, 232 Pages - $24.99.

Michael Solomon has written a wide ranging and disturbing book.


He [Michael] asks us to question many of the complacencies inherent in life in America, and to remember an earlier time when we took responsibilities for our actions and were proud to be Americans.

He strongly makes the case to be extremely vigilant against the decline in the core American values of self- resilience and hard work and to the creeping lassitude of life in a digital age. He cautions us to be vigilant of the media and to look behind the ease and sensationalism of modern nano -second reporting. It's dominance by Politicians and Celanthropists , Dilettantes, beating their drums and marching to the beat of their own publicity machines. He implores us to use our common sense, to step behind the Front Page Headlines, to question sources and to strive to get past the fluff into the depth of the issues. He postulates a lifetime of inquiry, of personal growth, community involvement and Pride in the transforming capabilities of the American System.

Michael's heroes are the working men and women of America, raising families, running businesses, trying to make sense of it all. He makes a strong case about the damaging affects of Hollywood and the media on the already difficult job of raising children and is virulent in his attacks on educational policies that seem at best to be misguided or at worse positively insane. In addition, the specter of 80,000 registered sex offenders missing and possibly "living next door" is especially horrific.

He makes a strong case for Tort Reform and for reducing American dependence on Foreign oil production. He is adamant in his defense of Weapons of Mass Destruction as a bi-partisan shared legitimate fear before the Iraq invasion, and makes an interesting if contrarian argument about the human contribution to Global Warming. All Great reading and worthy of further study.

Michael wants us to embrace and engage the political system. He wants his readers empowered by the arguments for action in his book to assail the Political Structure.

He admonishes us to unite on Flag Day, Thursday, June 14, 2007 and armed with the digital Tools of the Age, e-mail and fax our Leaders, Senators, Congresspersons, Governors and the Justices of the US Supreme Court

Send them this message:

"I am mad as hell and I will not take it any longer. I want my America Back."
