      Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of 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 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.

      It 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 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
      Whiner.

      Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
      If you still know him pass this on, if not join the majority and do
      nothing
