RIP Common Sense
An obituary you really must read, an obituary printed in the London Times - interesting and sadly rather true. Today we mark the passing a beloved old friend, COMMON SENSE, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. he will be remembered 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. COMMON SENSE lives by simple, sound financial policies (dont spend more than you can earn) and valuable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charge with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate. Teen suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch. and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. COMMON SENSE lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an asperin to a student, but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion, COMMON SENSE lost the will to live as the churches became buisdinesses, and criminal were treated better than their victims. COMMON SENSE took a beating when you couldnt defend yourself from a burgler in yuour own home and the burgler could sue you for assault. COMMON SENSE finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup coffee was hot. She spilled a little on her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. COMMON SENSE was preceeded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I know my rights. I want it now. Someone else is to blame. I`m a victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on, if not, join the majority and do nothing.
