We here at Fearsome Beard do not believe in war. We do not believe in guns. We do not believe in a supreme religion. (We believe that people have a right to practice a religion if they so choose, but they do not have the right to call their religion supreme to all other beliefs or non-beliefs nor force it upon others.)
We believe in peace. We believe in respect. We believe in truth, honesty, integrity, character and fidelity.
We do not support the actions taken by our government today. We do not support the individual who made that decision, nor do we support those who are complicit in this crime against humanity, civilization and our planet.

According to the Washington Post a certain administration in Washington DC has commanded that the CDC, Centers for Disease Control, must refrain from using certain words in their reporting. These words include science-based and evidence-based.
No freakin’ kidding.
As reported by the Washington Post please read for yourself:
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.”
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.
The question of how to address such issues as sexual orientation, gender identity and abortion rights — all of which received significant visibility under the Obama administration – has surfaced repeatedly in federal agencies since President Trump took office.
Vera Carp from our favorite fictional town of Tuna Texas seems to have infiltrated the current administration.
Does this mean we can say Happy Holidays again?
“Take them to jail. How dare they try to save their own healthcare. Why don’t they just get a job?”
Apparently senator Mitch McGreed and his staff have no use for free speech, differing opinions and for those pesky disabled people who stand to lose their healthcare.
“Off with them ” The Senator and his staff say …
If you aren’t rich Mitch McGreed, nor his staff, wants to see or hear from you. In fact if you aren’t rich they don’t give a damn about you, except for taking away your safety net so they can give it to the rich.
If you give a Fuck about yourself, your fellow humans, your children, or even the Fucking planet we live on…

This country is no longer the leader of the free world, but just another place for the rich to park their money and look down their noses at the poor … pity.
But 16 million, yes 16,000,000, American adults believe it comes from brown cows. Seriously…BROWN COWS. You can read more about that in The Washington Post by simply clicking right HERE.
Also of note in that same enlightening article about the state of American intelligence, is the statistic that 1 in 5 American adults is blissfully unaware that hamburger is actually made from cows as well.
Wow. Just WOW.
