This probably should be on the Obituary page entitled:
"Death of America"
Today we mourn the passing of a
beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense, who has been with us for many
No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were lost long ago 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, The second mouse always get the cheese 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 screaming, tyrannical 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 eating fast food every day would make you fat and decided to sue McDonald's. Yeah, she is the same one who spilled a
hot cup of coffee in her lap as she was driving and trying to text her
boyfriend at the same time. She and her lawyer wont ever have to work
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 stepsisters; Mya Rights and Ima Whiner.
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
