An Obituary printed in the London Times…..
Absolutely Brilliant!!

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.

630

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 5 stepbrothers;
– I Know My Rights
– I Want It Now
– Someone Else Is To Blame
– I’m A Victim
– Pay me for Doing Nothing

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.

He Has Learned So Little

Most people learn from their mistakes, but not our President. His latest appeal to Hollywood to take up the gun control fight is a prime example. His reaction to the terrorist action of a single nut job from South Carolina is to appeal to movie makers to begin a brainwashing campaign to get America off guns. Last week I watched a movie titled “Django.” I have previously maintained that when Hollywood gives up its love affair with making films that have little regard for life, then I will change my attitude about “we the people” owning guns. Django is a perfect example of a story loaded with hatred and divisiveness settled by killing. There is little question that some of the characters portrayed in Django deserved killing, but depicting the action on movie film in a glorious superman saves the day way is not what it will take to make me hand over my gun. If anything, movies like Django glorify Blacks killing Whites. We wonder why there is a rash of black on white crime in America? Tell me that Django has not contributed to this terrible disease?

Obama has solidified our right to own guns by his charge to Hollywood to take up gun control as a campaign. Why? Because if Hollywood does, they will go broke overnight, and we all know that one-percenters don’t like not making money. Writers will also have to write stories of people killing people without using guns. Where should Obama be putting his emphasis? Where should he begin? We learn the most when we are infants and young children. Our minds are like sponges soaking up knowledge. A child’s parents are the primary characters filling these tiny sponge brains with the stuff that will drive them later in life. Without parents the kids don’t stand much of a chance.  Obama should lecture people about keeping  kids with two parents. He can’t do it because his mother raised him by herself, and he has no clue about what a father’s role is. He seems a good father to his own daughters which is a sound example, but it is not enough. In his role as President he must encourage parents to rear children with character, morals, and rules. Instead, he transfers the job to Hollywood. He fully expects movies to raise our kids. What I see are children who see too many movies with the wrong messages like Django, i.e. solve your problems by killing your way out of  them.

Isn’t that what the kid in South Carolina did? Isn’t that what the Sandy Hook kid did? How about the movie house killer? These guys have major problems and they see killing as a way t o get the attention they need. Wouldn’t it be easier if they had parents who took the belt to them for disobedience or for showing signs of wrongful behavior?

Joke of the Day

Stupid is as stupid does.

gurneyA new patient was quite upset when the doctor’s nurse led him to a small, curtained cubicle and told him to undress. “But I only want the doctor to look at an ingrown toenail!” he protested. “Our rule is that everyone must undress,” replied the blond nurse. “That’s a stupid rule,” grumbled the patient, “making me undress just to look at my toe.” “That’s nothing,” growled a voice from the next cubicle. “I just came to fix the phones!”
