We get what we deserve so surely this sums up the present sorry state of politics.




Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense

'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



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



It declined even further when schools were required to get parental

consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast 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 Ten Commandments became

contraband; 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; his

wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers: I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,

Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.


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





And a little extra........................

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600

employees and has the following statistics?


29 have been accused of spouse abuse


7 have been arrested for fraud


19 have been accused of writing bad cheques


117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses


3 have done time for assault


71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit


4 have been arrested on drug-related charges


8 have been arrested for shoplifting


21 are currently defendants in lawsuits


84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year


Which organization is this?


It's the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that


cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest


of us in line.

Are these figures true?? and do they relate to the current members of parliament? Were the MPs who were arrested or accused actually charged with the offences?

How fabulous is that :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap: couldn't agree with it more and even though the bit about the MP's is a very sad reflection of our society it doesn't amaze me in the slightest.


Do you think the 84 arrested for drink driving and no doubt banned - but then again maybe not!!!! - are claiming for chauffeur driven cars or transport at the taxpayers expense?????
