The word “FREEDOM” is among the list of banned vanity license plate slogans for Washington D.C., according to a government file obtained by a Freedom of Information Request filed by the transparency website GovernmentAttic.org.
I can understand banning license plates that are clearly tied to a political candidate or such -- but the word "freedom"? Really? Especially since the government of the District of Columbia already forces its citizens to carry an explicitly political slogan on their license plates.
The real irony is that FREEDOM is banned but FKOBMA is not, despite the fact it really should be. Look and see some of the truly outrageous -- and truly innocuous (for example, ANITA) combinations that are banned.
