  1. When I saw the passage of the UN Arms Trade Treaty and the fact that we the United States voted for it, :cuss: :banghead: I thought of this obituary and felt posting it at this time would be appropriate.


    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.

    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
