Here are the seven words the Center for Disease Control is forbidden from soiling the innocent mind of the citizenry with, in the decent obscurity of the lj-cutCollapse )
Here is a further example of the alleged thinking at work here:
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.
In other words we pander to those differently intelligent enough to think “That’s your education talking” is an argument, rather than a confession.

“How can you respect my NO if you don’t respect my YES?" (By reprinting this phrase, I have saved you the trouble of clicking on a statement of willingness to view this “sensitive material.”)

The Rude Pundit (using language) says what I think about the Alabama election: Black people saved the country. Making sure they are not disenfranchised is the most important thing the Democrats can do.

Yesterday’s post about the possibility of fake celebrity porn was insufficiently grim. Charlie Stross does it right.

Thanx to Charlie's Diary

Roy Moore, like the comparably repugnant Milo Yiannopoulos, has learned that enough people who are not offended by the desire to go back to the good old days before the New Deal and the 13th Amendment are repelled by sex with teenagers to make a difference. It would be churlish to point out that many of these people are willing to treat children far below the sexual age of consent as adults if they are accused of a sufficiently offensive crime, that two teens who are caught experimenting will be accused of molesting one another and perhaps forced to register as sexual predators for the rest of their lives, and that many of these voters are significantly less concerned with children not having enough to eat or a roof over their heads. Nevertheless, I have done so.

The sun is about to return; let us rejoice! Many years ago, some of those who celebrate the occasion falsely accused my ancestors of waging a War on Solstice when all we wanted to do was mind our own business. We kicked their ass, and we celebrate that victory as Hanukkah, but it's long past time for bygones to be bygones, so to those who celebrate Solstice, as well as to those who celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Yule, Newtonmas, and any other holidays I left out, and don't mind if others celebrate theirs, happy holidays.
Thanx to the late Joel Rosenberg for suggesting this line of thought.

Nothing works and nobody cares. (And this is a Medium post so it molests your screen before you can even look at it.)

Thanx to Follow Me Here

And do-it-yourself celebrity (or anyone else) porn is almost here.
