RIP OBITUARY

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 rules (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, and watching schools give condoms to boys at school as boys will be boys.

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.

Marie - I think you have posted a very apt and appropriate piece of work in this day and age. May I suggest that you give this a far wider reading audiance by forwarding it to a national newspaper, preferably a Labour supporting paper. However I think you would be bombarded by the PC members of society who are trying to influence us into their odd ball way of thinking. Thank God I do not live in Hull with what that local authority has recently come out with. Good work and I am glad to see that there are still some people in this country (UK) who have the respect for their fellow person.

Hi Colin and Marie, yup, the world is changing, I know there is a shortage of those disk shaped "toit's" that garages used to have. Only last week when my van was in for a service, I phoned up and asked if it was finished, only to be told they hadn't got " around to it", national shortage apparently. Today my front door bell rang and outside was a policeman so young I'm sure his mother was waiting for him across the street with a handkerchief. In these PC times your unable to solve a problem without consulting with the legal system, county council and the welfare system. Not bad, if all you want to do is put new guttering up! One day it will all implode, leaving us old timers free to go about, clipping peoples ears and setting the world to right. It worked before and it will work again. Now, who's for a vertically challenged biscuit and caffeine enhanced hot beverage (shortbread + coffee)?
