    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 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.

    IT IS SO SAD TO SAY BUT THIS ACTUALLY PRETTY ON TARGET AND TRUE
