Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense.

Thanks Carl!

Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense.

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; and 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 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 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 Bactine, 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 you couldn't defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

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

Hiker, that is good. Tell you another that confuses me. How come you have to swear to God to tell the truth in court but can't display the Ten Commandments on the building?

This is truly a sad, unfortunate truth.

The moral demise of our country definitely started with the far left wing liberal hippies of the 60's. Free love, peace and blaming the government for everyone's problems. People need to take responsibility for themselves and their actions. It is not the responsibility of the government to take care of everyone with the tax dollars of hard working citizens.

Also, we help matters along by continuing to elect lawyers to make laws that only perpetuate the lining of their own pockets. Let's start nominating and voting for the best person for the job.....that IS NOT a lawyer. The laws of common sense died some time ago my friends.

Sorry Don, this must have slipped me.

That is a very good question.......do the courts still make to swear to God, to tell the truth? or do you just have to promise to swear to tell the truth?

Judge Roy Moore called the courts out on the 10 Commandments, sad that the courts think they are higher and above God. They'll find out soon enough, that they're not.

Or how a person can be charged with two murders when they murder a pregnant woman, but no crime is committed if a doctor ends the pregenancy? It is either a human life or it isn't. Not advocating for either position, but inconsistencies drive me nuts. Logically, it can't be both ways.
