Common Sense Gone???

Remarkable Obituary

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense. Mr. Sense had 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 value 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 charge).

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

Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get 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, she spilled a bit in her lap, and
was awarded a huge financial 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 two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima

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

Yep, somebody needs to send this Govenors and Houses of each and every state and also the White house and Supremely Stupid Court where it should be made into a poster print and hung over the doors for all to see.

But John....
you HAVE to have separation of church and state...
but not state and stupidity
so therefore they'd probably vote against any posting of that nature..

but only after two years of appeals and dissenting opinions

His wife Common Courtesy kicked the bucket too.

I'm so f'ing sick of people not returning business phone calls, not showing up for service calls or even making a simple call to say they won't be able to make that service call when they promised.

I love nothing more than some azzhole contractor showing up a day or two late without calling only to see that I did it myself or I paid someone else to do the job instead of him.
