The sole purpose is budgetary.

The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.
You TDS sufferers. LOL.

The patterns were created by a kilt maker and were originally assigned numbers. He later randomly replaced the numbers with names of clans, towns, ruling families, etc, in an effort to increase sales.

I agreed with you about the kilt worn by Scottish men,

No need to get all uppity, if someone wants to share some historical insights which you clearly did not know about.

I take this as confirmation that you have no evidence that Obama ever officially instructed any of his agencies to use the term undocumented immigrant.

You misread it RNG.

The history of the kilt stretches back to at least the end of the 16th century.

Neither I, nor the article that I linked to, said otherwise.

The first know reliable documentation of what we know as the kilt today is from late 16th. First picture is 17th.

You guys are absolutely adorable. You really need to stay off of Facebook. That shit will rot your brain.

The Washington Post reported breathlessly on the ban, implying that the Trump White House was using the CDC to make its first stand against science. Activists immediately accused the Administration of censorship, even hysterically comparing the Administration's move to Orwell's "1984" and Adolf Hitler's efforts to control information in Nazi Germany.

Despite the CDC's own director, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, insisting the ban did not extend beyond the scope of a handful of budget documents, it was immediately clear to Democrats that the Trump Administration was moving to throttle all scientific research.

The "ban" seems to come in response to Obama Administration efforts to expand the CDC's purview into research areas more closely aligned with social justice factors than with disease prevention, but it's not clear the Trump Administration will achieve its objective of "de-politicizing" the CDC and other affiliated organizations by issuing strict language restrictions that directly impact progressive causes.

The forbidden words are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or *“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

The reaction of people in the meeting was “incredulous,” the analyst said. “It was very much, ‘Are you serious? Are you kidding?’ ”

WHEN, in the history of this country, has an administration banned certain vocabulary words, particularly from an agency whose job is to protect us from deadly outbreaks, infectious diseases and public health issues??
God forbid we should educate ourselves, using ADULT vocabulary. So, maybe from now on the CDC will refer to all imminent health concerns as COVFEFES??
Gee, sounds like the same kind of crap that Obama pulled doesn't it! Touché!
