    Absolutely Brilliant !!!

    When you read this you will see how stupid the human race has become.
    Most of it is oh so true!

    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 can earn) and
    reliable 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 6-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
    that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent
    to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform
    parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the 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 could 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,
    by his wife, Discretion,
    by his daughter, Responsibility,
    and by his son, Reason.

    He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
    I Know My Rights
    I Want It Now
    Someone Else Is To Blame
    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.

    What many think of common sense is nothing more than how you were brought up and learned over time.

    Many time it was learned through trial and error on trying new ideas...

    We had a high school teacher who was teaching some physic's point on how traveling items always reduce the distance by half until meeting the other item. When one of the rancher students said if i shoot a bullet at you would it stop when it got to you or continue on. Using the teacher example are you willing to see if this theory stands up. So much for that theory...
