Thomas Paine Had it Right

I have noticed, when reading the newspaper or watching the news on television, a striking characteristic of America today - the near total lack of common sense. Democrats claim this is the way to fix problems. Republicans claim that is the way to fix problems. People get away with suing companies because the word "hot" was not on a coffee cup (hello). Others try to sue cigarette companies because smoking turned out to be bad for their health. What the heck!

Kids who choose not to do their school work, somehow manage to graduate from high school anyway and then cannot figure out why, as adults, their employer fires them due to unproductivity.

The purpose of this blog is to comment on weekly examples of our lack of common sense in America. Perhaps, by it, others will recognize the same problem and bring a sense of sensibility back to our society.
