As the old saying goes, Common Sense ain't always so common. -It's got to be taught.
Teaching 'common sense'?
Think about that, if 'common sense' must be 'taught', it AIN'T common, now is it?
Sorry, but I believe it's this kind of thinking that leads to the good 'ol Govt. getting involved, and even the slowest among us knows where that will lead.
I know this sounds cruel, but there IS some truth to the theory of Darwinism.
I am NOT responsible for the stupidity of others, nor is society at large.
At one time in this land there was a doctrine known as The prudent man principle (now slightly bastardized by the legal definition for managing funds) that recognized that a man was responsible to and for himself, giving credit to a prudent persons intelligence.
I find the kinds of laws and rules that dictate my conformity to others lack of intelligence insulting to mine.
And I'm perfectly willing to be held liable for any actions I may take or cause, that's the price a prudent person recognizes for their liberty.
