50 Forbidden Words

War On Words: NYC Dept. Of Education Wants 50 'Forbidden' Words Banned From Standardized Tests « CBS New York

The Absurdity of Beauracracy

It always starts out with some righteous cause of making a regulation for something that probably didn't need regulating.

For instance, those words involving abuse or pornography....were they really having a problem with test makers using these words and themes? I highly doubt it. Common sense would tell you not to.

Once you get a group of people in a position of power, on a ”board”, they feel the need to tell everyone else what to do. Whether our not they need to be told! They have the power, therefore, they know what is best for you.

Check out the link site the list of words...including dinosaurs and birthday!  Hooray for the ”all-knowing” government for  ”protecting” us!

...and so socialism goes....

They forgot to banish the word 'home-school' for fear of teaching that parents have rights and might actually be involved in their child's education! Maybe they can get rid of any meat words so the vegans won't feel sick thinking about eating flesh =)
