Sad day.....suspicions confirmed

Obituary

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 it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you 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
Its Not My Fault
I'm A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized his time has passed.


I think someone has something like this in their sig.

Craig

Unfortunately a good post Craig . I wish I could say that sending something like this in a mass email would help turn the tide, but I now feel that it would be like tring to piss up a rope and not get pee all over me

Here's one for the haters of common sense, obama wants ANOTHER stimulus to create jobs, you know since the first one went so well
