OBITUARY FOR COMMON SENSE - Interesting and sadly true - Victoria-M. asteri_55@yahoo.com

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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; life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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).

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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 sunscreen or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

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.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He is survived by his four stepbrothers: I know my Rights; I Want it Now; Someone Else is to blame and I am a Victim.

PowerPoint Presentation:

because so few realized Not many attended his funeral he was gone.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If you still remember him pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing. © August/2011 Pictures and words from Web. Music: Richard Clayderman – Yesterday.
