The state government of Florida has been relentlessly mocked for forbidding civil servants to use the term "climate change." That comes straight from the governor himself, Slackjaw Rick Scott.
Well two can play that game. The other, sadly, happens to be the Mango Mussolini, Donald Trump. The White House has issued a list of words the Center for Disease Control is prohibited from using in any official budget documents.
The banned words are: "vulnerable," "entitlement," "diversity," "transgender," "fetus," "evidence-based" and "science-based." Do I detect a certain bias in this? We know Trump doesn't care for anything evidence-based or science-based. Even our own prime ministers, past and present, have not always cared for such things.
What's that line? Something about how "the truth will set you free." Maybe that's exactly what they can't stand.
