Obituary Of 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 bureau-
cratic 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 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 un-
ruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to
get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin 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 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, 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,
by his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers – I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
Someone Else Is To Blame and I’m A Victim.

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