This was a book that I had worked on the basics idea of for several years. It seems that there are so many problems in the US today and I felt it was time to bring some of these to light. I am not sure if the problems begin at home or are a product of the screwed up reality TV world that we live in. There are far more important things going on than these stupid "stars" on reality TV and their pathetic lives. We need to worry about learning the basics in school and understanding the importance of a good education. I seriously believe that a lack of actual discipline leads to many of these problems. I am not advocating child abuse, but there are some people that need more than a timeout. I have been amazed at some of the language kids and adults use in a variety of public places. We can make a better place and get this country back on track. We need to understand that these kids today are the future leaders of our country. Look at these some of them and you can tell that there is no discipline and they believe that the world revolves around them. We need to stop being the enablers and start being real parents and authority figures. My thoughts are that it is time to get serious and concerned for the future generation since they seem lacking for their own concern.

About the Author:

Greg Pavlosky was born in Chicago and grew up in Johnstown, PA. Johnstown was known for its industry (steel mills, coal mines and railroads). He grew up in suburban Johnstown with his parents and three sisters. His father owned and operated his own food business and Greg got started at an early age working in the family business. He attended nine years of Catholic School and then three years at the local Vocational-Technical School. At the Vo-Tech he studied Food Service and Preparation as well as business courses. Greg has always had a mechanical inclination since he was young and loved to build a variety of things with his friends. These types of projects continue today as a way to keep himself busy. He served in the Navy, and spent years as a Volunteer Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician. He suffers from a nerve disease that has led to a long list of medical issues and numerous surgeries. He is a Jack of all Trades and also known as MacGyver to some for his ability to solve problems on the fly with little to work with. This is the third book by Greg. His two previous books were about Homesteading and the first two books in a planned series. He is on Facebook under The Scavengers Homestead and on Twitter @GregPavlosky. Feel free to contact him if you have any suggestion or questions.
