How you found us: dont recall
Common Sense

A email I received today..

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by
the name of Common Sense who has been with us for many
years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth
records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He
will be remembered as having cultivated such valued lessons
as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early
bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies
(don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting
strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge). His health
began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a
six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for
kissing a classmate, teens suspended from school for using
mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding
an unruly student only worsened his condition. It declined
even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer aspirin to a student but could not
inform the parents when a student became pregnant and
wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common sense lost the will to live as the Ten
Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses
and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed
to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, spilled a
bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth
and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility;
and his son, Reason. He is survived by two stepbrothers; My
Rights and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he
was gone.
