It Is S.A.D.: The Leftist Brain Exposed
autism, but I must say it is still in the developmental stage. Certainly such tests are not set
up to focus on common sense. Many times all of these are really tests which include
common sense testing.
We all have known very bright, by IQ standards, people who are all over the map on
matters which seem so common.
Einstein stands out. He forgot how to comb and care for his hair, did not wear socks and
his upper garment was generally a bad looking sweat shirt. Little things like keeping your
room picked up, tying your shoes, choosing the right colors, and stuff like that.
We have known people who were absolutely sharp as a tack when it comes to inventing
things and yet cannot remember to eat. Their balancing common things seem askew.
Estimates tell us approximately 136 million minds are created every year. Roughly 20 per
1000 of population. In all that volume, error is a part of the package. Quality control is
totally lacking….none. Some minds will be defective, some will be great, and all will be
different. The stories abound about the person, who is mentally defective in most things,
but can draw pictures of what they have seen in amazing detail, or play a piano in a way
that is a marvel.
Some say Common Sense has passed on. In the London Times the following appeared.
?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 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 polices (don‘t spend more than you can
earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when wellintentioned but overbearing regulations
were set in place.
Reports of 6 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 every further
when schools were required to get parental consent to administer such 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
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a
steaming cup of coffee was hot.
