COMMON SENSE (C) IN THE SERIES CLIF FROM A TO Z
Common sense. Where did it go? When did it go? Why did it go? Did we ever have any?
Oh yes, we have had common sense―lots of it. I can remember when I thought that's about all the sense we did have. We certainly weren't educated. At least not my family, my relatives, my friends.
In my family of four brothers and two sisters I am the only one to finish high school. They all dropped out of school to go to work. They were thrilled to help me, the youngest graduate high school and go on to receive a Master's Degree from the University.
My brothers and sisters did not receive a formal education but an education in life and ended up with a lot of common sense and real values.
Today, it seems to me, we have a lot of education and little or no common sense. Of course, not everybody, but generally speaking.
It's my strong opinion that two of our biggest problems are liberal college professors and the liberal news media.
It seems to me that we are being led down a path of liberal, crazy thinking and have lost the ability to reason.
I see young people who think they have the world by the tail and it's really the other way around.
What's the answer? Can we reclaim this lost power of reasoning and restore common sense?
Well of course, ALL COMMON SENSE has not been lost!
And as long as there is still even a small amount―there is hope!
My hope is in God. He's got the whole world in his hand. I'm on his side. I stand with him.
BUT I REFUSE TO JUST STAND BY.
I'll use what common sense I have to stand against anything and everything that doesn't make sense.
And then I will leave the outcome to HIM!
