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 by.

Today I read his obituary. Please join me in a moment of silence in remembrance for


Common Sense

who has served us all so well for so many generations.



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 isnt always fair.. and maybe it was my fault.



Common Sense

lived by simple yet sound financial policies.. dont spend more than you earn..

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 couldnt defend yourself from a burglar in your own home for fear the burglar would 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 Im 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.
