Federal Bureau of Common Sense

September 28, 2013

Editor’s Note:  It was suggested on Facebook that there ought to be created a Federal Department of Common Sense.   This made me wonder what a Federal Bureau of Common Sense would look like and sound?  That is, what would pass the bar to be judged ‘common sense’ at the Federal level, that is to a fully tenured bureaucrat? Here’s a stab at the start:

It’s just common sense…


Where we know better, but are willing to help.

Where we know better, but are willing to help.


Part One:  Getting an audience.

“Wait in line.  Wait in line.  Wait in line!

“I can’t help you until you’ve waited in line.”

“You can make a request by filling out one of the forms over there.”

“Go back in line, please.”

“This window is not open.  I can’t help you.”

“There’s the line.”

“Your problem is that you have filled our the wrong form.”

“If you leave the line, you lose your place.”

“Don’t raise your voice.  It won’t help.”

“I’m telling you what the law means.”

“Without proper identification, I can’t help you.”

“We don’t take personal checks.”

“We don’t take credit cards.”

“You must have exact change.”

“Take a number and then wait in line.”
