Commonsense Has Died

An interesting Email I recieved this week........

Commonsense Has Died

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of commonsense, who has been with us for many years.

No one know 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, and that life isn't always fair.

Commonsense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were put 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.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student, but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

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

Commonsense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot-she spilled a bit on her lap and was awarded a huge settlement.

Commonsense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility and his son Reason. He is survived by two stepbrothers-My Rights and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone. If you still know him, pass this on: if not join the majority and do nothing.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Re: Commonsense Has Died

To true that email, so sad the way the wold has gone, noone wants to take responsibility for their own actions, and seem to think that they are all owed something and everyone else should look after them in the form of huge cash settlements even though the stupid stuff they did was their own fault

Like the mother that managed to sue a shop for tripping over a kid and hurting herself.. pity it was her kid

Re: Commonsense Has Died

Does that mean i can sue FF for running such an prestigious and informative site that inpires me to higher levels of ford fanaticism, which cause me to be ridiculed by the Holden mutants that abound where i live and thus put my car in danger of being mocked and hurting the feelings both of myself and my beloved AU???

...Does that sound like someone trying to make bullshit sound legal and sad so they can score money LOL
