Banning the word “Freedom” is consistent with the government’s activities to ban freedom itself.

I just checked the source docs (@governmentattic.org) and ‘FREEDOM’ doesn’t appear to be on the list for DC....

“Welcome to Washington D.C., the capitol of the free world...”

Nah, just another Black-Run Failure like it’s “sister city,” Detroit! It will survive though only because it’s closer to the Government Tit!

Mention of freedom in D.C. is inconsistent with the goals of those running that place, so it makes sense to me.

I think that is different. This is actually the word FREEDOM. I believe FREDUM is also banned.

That reads like a list of banned and already used plates.

Already used = You can’t use it (again)

Here’s an example. EXPIRED is on the list, but it is in use.

The ground in Monticello is wet with Thomas Jefferson’s tears over what his beloved city has become, no doubt.
