Democrats Will Ban Words For Public Safety

"Call me a dreamer"
Jan 16, 2011. In the wake of Saturday's tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, in which 6 people died and 20 others were seriously injured, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-AZ, Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-ME, called for more civil political discourse by challenging Republicans to change the name of their health care repeal legislation:

"The bill, titled the ‘Repeal the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,' was set to come up for a vote this week, but in the wake of Gabby's shooting, it has been postponed at least until next week," she wrote in a blog post on The Huffington Post.

"Don't get me wrong - I'm not suggesting that the name of that one piece of legislation somehow led to the horror of this weekend - but is it really necessary to put the word "killing" in the title of a major piece of legislation?

I don't think that word is in there by accident - my Republican friends know as well as anyone the power of words to send a message. But in this environment and at this moment in our nation's history, it's not the message we should be sending."

Democrat lawmakers are convinced the real problem isn't the criminals who commit crimes, but the "hate words" that incite them to commit those crimes. So a new bill will be drafted to outlaw the use of certain very highly charged "hate words."

This new law should dramatically reduce violent crime, since mentally unbalanced people won't hear these words, then they won't be motivated to assault, rape or kill others.

Here are a few of the 923 words that this law will ban, and the suggested replacement words:

ATTACK                                  INCIDENT
BLOOD                               BODY FLUID   
BUTCHER                       MEAT CUTTER
HITS                                          BASES
KILLER                                  SUSPECT
PUNCH                             FRUIT DRINK
RAPE                                  BAD THING
SLAM DUNK                         BALL JAM
SLAPSHOT                      FAST SWING
SLICE                    LEMON-LIME DRINK
SMACK                                     HEROIN
TARGET                                       GOAL
WOUND                                    MISHAP
PUSH and PULL will be removed from all doors
