Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, 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 valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come
in out of the rain Why the early bird gets the worm Life isn't
always fair Maybe it was my fault Common Sense lived by simple,
sound financial policies: Don't spend more than you can earn And reliable
strategies: Adults, not children, are in charge His health began to
deteriorate 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
Tylenol, sun lotion or a band-aid 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 Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became
businesses and criminals received better treatment than their victims.Common
Sense took a beating when it became punishable for you to defend yourself from
a burglar in your own home but the burglar could sue you for assault. He began
to lose ground rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were
set in place. Reports of a 6 -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.Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman
failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little
in her lap and was promptly 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 his 3 stepbrothers; I
Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To blame, and I'm A Victim.. Not many attended
his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him,
pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing...
