    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.

    As a trained invesigator I have come accross direct evidence that Liberalism is directly responsible for the death of common sense. Liberalism has been promoted by the communist party and socialism in order to destroy The United States of America. (It already destroyed Europe). It uses the ACLU and the Democratic Party, along with some power greedy Republicans to promote liberalism. It has taken over most of the news media, a great amount of the educational system, and has turned our youth into mindless, greedy, lazy pawns.
    I see a glimmer of hope in the gatherings of Tea Party Freedom loving Americans, who respect the laws, voice their opinions, and clean up after themselves when they are done. Hopefully they will remain strong and fight this ever growing liberal menace.

    I do not want to live in a world where there is no common sense. What are the best states for common sense so I can live there.

    The population for the entire State of Wyoming is around 500,000 people.
    The pronghorn antelope population is around 600,000. That is a place that makes sense to me.

    Dad, step out your door and look South and a little West. See that big mountain range with the sheer drop off down to Palm Springs and Palm Desert? Up in those mountains you will still find pockets of common sense, even in California. Anza in Apple Valley, Hemet, Temecula, Idylwild, Temecula, even Aquangua. The folks who haven't yet been swamped by the cities. People who make their own news and live their own lives.
