Got anything more than your say so on this claim? I'd like to read more of the story and the context in which it was said..
Best i can find is this story which indicates these words as merely words the media has used to describe Hillary=
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-gra...media-negative

Which makes me wonder if indeed Hillary did make the threat to ban these words was said in jest,satire or just taken out of contex?.
IMO you can replace all those words with the phrase=best qualified for the job of next President.

As there is virtually no debate in the scientific community as to the reality of Global Warming maybe its Americas rightwing thats been suckered as they seem to be the only dissenting voices on the issue.

It's funny when we have had some of the coldest winters recently in the USA, the climate change people shut up, but when we have record heat they come out from under their rocks and say "see! I told you so!".

Just look at what the Democrats want to do about it. They just want to raise your taxes and expand the government. Even if you believe climate change is real, how would raising taxes on everyone fix the problem? It doesn't.

Rising ocean levels? Ridiculous.

If you believe in man-made climate change you are just suckered into a leftist scam to increase government control.

The aluminum foil shelves at grocery stores are empty all over Florida because of all the hats being made... better buy some quick before it all runs out!

Isn't it kind of foolish to throw away money just to spite your government?

He may stink, but at least this isn't California with Jerry Brown or the whole slew of progressive conservatives that lean too democrat or are moviestars.

I voted against Marijuana but I never voted for Scott and never will vote for conservative nutjob. I don't think the two are necessarily connected. People believe in whatever is convenient to them, if they like to smoke pot, they will figure a way to justify their use, even if it is against their beliefs.

There's a reason it's called Flori-Duh....there's a lot of Floridiots here. Still, I've met some nice people, but you DO have to look hard for them. Just yesterday I was listening to some old timer going on and on about how Senator Cruz was the only person around who would stand up and prove that climate change was all a lie. As for this governor, maybe the less said the better. I am still amazed he has not been indicted. Those political connections come in handy.

It's not just Florida either. The Bush clan (oh, sorry, that is partly Florida too) hasn't done this country any favors either. I truly wish there was some way to connect Florida w/ Texas and cut them both loose from the continent somehow so they could just go somewhere else. Please. Simply seceding from the Union isn't good enough for me. Besides, as a Southerner, I remember that we tried that and it didn't work. Maybe they could drift into another dimension? I would like that a lot. Of course, I would have to move from Florida before that happened, but I'm up for it.

There's just something scary about Scott, and attempting to ban certain words is a very Texas-like thing. Let's face it, tea party repubs are about as close to delusional, fundamentalist, religious nut job fascists that you can find. Well, I HOPE they are anyway. Who knows what's coming down the pipe in the future. Besides, knowing Florida's history of rigging elections, who says he was really elected anyway? I don't believe it for a second. Me, I'm just waiting for the inter planetary shuttle to get going.
