Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 16, 2017

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 any official documents being prepared for next year's budget. Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are "vulnerable," "entitlement," "diversity," "transgender," "fetus," "evidence-based" and "science-based."

So, "fantasy-based" is still OK to use?

I often wonder if your government even realizes how much of a joke, due to their antics, America has become to the rest of the world in one short year. Nobody with any sense at all is taking anything coming out of the Trump admin. with any seriousness except for doll hands war cries.

You're banning the use of "evidence-based"?

How in the hell are all your Departments' grant awardees supposed to report their findings? I guess I have to report our outcomes as "evidence-founded".

------' despicable trash.

Crayons and paper mache probably.

Besides, anything that would require that kind of detail will probably be eliminated from the budget.

As scientists working for the US Government become disillusioned, expect an exodus into private industry, accompanied by an upsurge in scientists abandoning their careers to smoke weed and listen to The Doors.
