    What?? Obummer!

    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.

    Boo hoo. Your boy lost, go cry me a river. Most of the things you list as "deaths are common sense" are simply false, or not given proper context. The woman who sued McDonald's was in the right. McDonald's served dangerously hot coffee with lids that didn't stay on.

    There's really nothing to discuss here. The election is over, and it's already been talked about a lot here.
