Was Star Wars designed to save the empire or to build an empire? Which party actually saves money? Did the framers of the Constitution actually think out the whole concept of a Supreme Court? Is being a member of Congress a service or a career?

BS is ubiquitous to life as we know it. We have been so swamped with it for so long that we sometimes forget it is BS. Opposite positions justified by two sides from the same Bible. Balancing the budget by 1) reducing spending, or 2) increasing spending. Justifying big kids playing in space by science and/or politics. Buy this book and you'll be challenged in any area you choose. You can buy this for your Congressmen or Senators, but can you get them to read it? If they did read it, would it affect them?

Hopefully "Gotta Call BS on That One" will make you think and help you laugh. If it spurs you to action to reduce BS, all the better! In any case, it is bound to be an interesting title to fill out your collection.

About the author (2012)

Gerry Steiner has enjoyed a life that is varied in location, vocation, and activities. He started in the land of tradition and history, Hampton, Va. and is now on Maui. He was in the Navy during Vietnam. He followed a career in oceanography and EE (signal processing). His focus included sonar measurements from an ice flow, sensors for the Strategic Defense Initiative, and space-based lasers. Throughout his journeys he watched how things work in society, government, and industry. The way we often pretend and let others pretend gave him the inspiration to write. He often heckled during his career by writing songs about his associates and management. He is now writing these thoughts when not biking or swimming.AUTHOR HOME: Kihei, HI
