As you stated, truly amazing at how much "common sense" we have lost today. I am constantly amazed at just how "far" we have come. A nation of people who have lost sight of what made us great. Our nation was once a great nation. One in which the thought was "how can I help you". Now it seems the thought is "what can you do for me".
