Listening to news programs, particularly yakity-yak-my-view-is-the-only-right-view programs, you might get the idea there’s a war on everything.
Many times, someone supports a “war” because of some perceived political edge.
The greatest war in today’s society is on commonsense. There is a tremendous attack on common sense in our society.
I confess, common sense isn’t as common as once it was and perhaps never was. I like to think that, somewhere along the line, a few good people have entertained common sense.
It would be nice if politicians would occasionally come together and establish a law -- merely one sensible law. In order to do that, they have to have 999 other laws that confuse it to such a degree it no longer makes sense.
Common sense would tell me if I don’t have enough money I can’t purchase a particular thing. That doesn’t work in Washington. In Washington, finances are never part of the equation. The only important thing is, does this make somebody who voted for me happy enough to do so again?
It takes a lot of good old-fashioned commonsense to take care of money and run my household budget in such a way that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is happy. Taking care not to frivolously spend money is part of my commonsense approaching balancing my checkbook.
Commonsense says I need to balance my checkbook.
Washington sense says, write checks until you have no more checks, then order more; forget balance. If we run out of money, just print more. Does that make sense?
Not only is commonsense eliminated from our country’s financial aspects, but health issues are also thrown to the curb.
Commonsense tells me I need to eat properly.
Washington sense says, eat what I tell you. I’ve seen some of they want us to eat. The government wants to come into our schools and force-feed our children “proper” diets.
