Remember the seven words that the late comic George Carlin listed that you can never say on TV? In case you forgot, they were;
“sh*t, piss, f*ck, c*nt, c*cksucker, motherf*cker & tits”
Well, apparently there are even dirtier words than those. The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget. Are you ready for them?
“vulnerable, entitlement, diversity, transgender, fetus, evidence-based & science-based”
No, I’m not kidding. This is not fake news or The Onion or an SNL preview.
Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting this Thursday with senior officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing.
Analysts were given alternative phrases in some cases, like instead of “science-based” or “evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is
“CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”
In other cases, no replacement words were offered.
The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights — all of which received significant visibility under the Obama administration — has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since Trump took office. Several key departments — including Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, as well as Justice, Education, and Housing and Urban Development — have changed some federal policies and how they collect government information about LGBT Americans.
I see that motherf*cker, cocks*cker Mike Pence‘s fingerprints ALL OVER THIS! Sh*t! P*ss! F*ck!
