'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who hasbeen with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since hisbirth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will beremembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm;Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend morethan you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are incharge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned butoverbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boycharged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended fromschool for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimandingan unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the jobthat they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. Common Sense declined even further when schools were required to getparental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; butcould not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to havean abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; andcriminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took abeating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own homeand the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed torealise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in herlap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, hiswife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;I Know My RightsI Want It NowSomeone Else Is To BlameI'm A Victim Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If youstill remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.July 17, 2009 at 6:08 pm #32145
