An obituary to Common sense !

Interesting and sadly rather true.
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who 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 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 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. 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,by his
      wife, Discretion,by his daughter, Responsibility,and by his son, Reason.

      He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

     I Know My Rights
     I Want It Now
     Someone Else Is To Blame
     I'm A Victim

     Not many attended his funeral

     because so few realized he was gone.

     If you still remember him, pass this on by sharing this.....

     If not, join the majority and do nothing.
