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

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

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well
intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in

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
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 it in her lap, and was awarded a huge

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

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

Kind of sad reading that because of the underlying truth to it all. What will the future be like? It really doesn't look promising with more and more values going un-taught, money rules everything, everyone out for themselves, take your religious beliefs somewhere else, etc.
