WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO COMMON SENSE?

With all the crap happening in the world and us being inundated with questionable ethics of journalists and the media, I felt this was important enough to post. Yes, it pertains to celebrities, fashion, healthcare and politics in general. Will everyone just slow down and actually think and use their heads?! Hearts and intelligence before pocketbooks!!

Common Sense Obituary

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved friend, Common Sense, who has been
with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was as his birth
records were lost long ago 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
then you earn) and reliable parenting (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 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
they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It
declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to
administer Panadol, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student; but could
inform the parents when a student became pregnant.

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 can 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 three 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. If you
still remember him, pass this on. If not join the majority and do nothing.

(Everyone is guilty! Even me!)
