Common Sense

My parents told me about Mr. Common Sense early in my life and told me I
would do well to call on him when making decisions. It seems he was
always around in my early years but less and less as time passed my
until today I read his obituary. Please join me in a moment of silence
in remembrance. For Common Sense had served us all so well for so many
generations.

Obituary
Common Sense



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 earn) and reliable parenting 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 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.

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 Aspirin, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a
student; but could not inform the 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 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.

It just occurred to me that UG attracts a lot of socially isolated male teenagers with questionable psychological dispositions.

Bravo!!! This is a perfect summary of things I have been thinking about for the past 2 or 3 years. Common sense has gone out the window. My quote in my sig (the things in red) is referring to this. The world today is retarded, and people should realize that and stand up to it. The world is trying to make life fair, and by doing so, making the balance even worse.

Yeah everything seems a hell of a mess at the moment. Imagine being able to start again with a clean slate. I feel like playing Civilization IV now.

Wow. I thought this was posted by the guy with the einstein avatar who's always talking about how his sense of common sense is superior and how he has a wife.

Butyeah common sense died ina ll of us. We just don't have the need to think freely anymore. We have machines to do that. It's actually sad though.
