Seattle officials call for ban on
´potentially offensive´ language

FoxNews.com, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:sliver of truth, 8/2/2013 8:45:35 AM

Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"

Comments:
I have never, ever, in all my 54 years on God´s green earth, ever heard someone use the term "brown bag" for anything other than lunch being toted in a brown paper bag. Insanity.

Why not just give the Thought Police proper uniforms? They´ve already been commissioned.

Mr. Elliott Bronstein should be immediately fired for terminal stupidity, but will probably get a raise.
Mr. Elliott Bronstein and people like him are a big part of the reason the country is falling apart.
And we do nothing to get people like him out of positions of authority.
Anybody awake in Seattle to publicly shame this fool?

Government workers in the city of Seattle have also been advised that the term "truth" may no longer be used in official documents and discussions since it offends Democrats.

Dumbkoffs !
"potentially offensive´ language"
I suppose any word could be potentially offensive if the commie masters decide it is. I was always against "hate" crimes because no one can get inside someone else´s head. A crime is a crime.
However, this is giving the commies a blank check to write whatever they want.
Everyone has freedom of speech, everyone has the "right" to be offended.

If I lived in Seattle I would walk around all day screaming, ´citizen´ and ´brown bag.´

I would plant myself at the door of Bronstein´s office and yammer those words, non stop.

Right smack in his ridiculous, self righteous face.

It´s called terminal liberal stupidity #4, and there is no cure. This is a city that put its citizens in danger a couple of winters ago by refusing to use de-icing products on their streets.

People that lived on some of the steeper hilly neighborhoods were SOL when it came to needing police or ambulances. Even with chains, they had a hard time getting up some of the hills.

This is a group of liberal idiots who put the supposed welfare of fish over people and they will never, ever change.

Maybe Seattle should just declare grunting to communicate and ban the entire American English language. Start from scratch with the communication process.
I really believe there are two Americas and that one day some cities will be off limits for sane, truth seeking, conservative, anti-big government type people. The liberals can have all the stupid nanny states and overtax it´s populations and control speech while banning guns.

Hopefully this Commissar from the Ministry of Truth will get his new high-peaked hat (an asshat for sure),long, black leather coat, and jackboots soon.

Really, I can´t think of anything more designed to turn people with an ounce of common sense off having anything to do with Seattle, much less considering moving to or doing business there, and God help any
children supposedly "educated" in ther schools.

If there is a bright side to all this, perhaps his statements will serve as a not so silent "dog whistle," beckoning all with similar ideas to settle in Seattle, and thus rid all of the other more sane parts of the U.S. of their presence and their ideas.

Okay, Mr. Dumbsein better be adding "parchment paper" to that list because that term can be construed to mean people lacking in pigmentation of their skin.

In other words, WHITE PEOPLE!

The Supreme Court has ruled that is now legal for law enforcement to take the DNA of people arrested, even though they have not yet been convicted of a crime. The decision was a big victory to police and victim rights groups in the fight over how and when your DNA can be used, with the justices being nearly split down the middle. While the justices approving believe they are solidifying DNA as the fingerprint of the 21st Century, there is concern over whether or not the decision violates the Fourth Amendment while police and prosecutors say they are happy for what the ruling

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
