Sunday Rant

Common question

What does CDC stand for? Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

CDC Goal and Objectives: The CDC aspires to create a world where people – in the United States and around the globe – live healthier, safer, and longer lives. CDC’s global health mission is to improve and protect the health, safety, and security of Americans while reducing morbidity and mortality worldwide.

What are the 3 strategic priorities for the CDC?

CDC’s Strategic Framework consists of five core capabilities that enable the agency’s three strategic priorities, all united behind one mission: protect America’s safety, health, and security. Our work is underscored by the agency’s Pledge to the American People.

What is the CDC budget?

 The FY 2022 budget request for CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) includes a total funding level of $9.6 billion in discretionary budget authority, Public Health Service (PHS) Evaluation funds, and the Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF). This is an increase of $1.7 billion above the FY 2021 Enacted. These amounts include $81.75 million for ATSDR—an increase of $3.75 million over FY 2021 Enacted.  When accounting for all resources, including mandatory programs, the budget includes a total program levels of $15.4 billion for CDC.

CDC on firearm confiscation control:   CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) has been the nation’s leading public health authority on violence and injury prevention for nearly 30 years. Firearm violence has tremendous impact on the overall safety and wellbeing of Americans. Using a public health approach is essential to addressing firearm violence and keeping people safe and healthy.(disease?)

CDC’s approach to preventing firearm injuries focuses on three elements: providing data to inform action; conducting research and applying science to identify effective solutions; and promoting collaboration across multiple sectors to address the problem.

Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities: Language in communication products should reflect and speak to the needs of people in the audience of focus. The following provides some preferred terms for select population groups; the terms to try to use represent an ongoing shift toward non-stigmatizing language. (disease)

dis·ease//dəˈzēz/ noun  : a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury.

My questions,: What the hell are the U.S.taxpayer funding an organization that  “aspires to create a healthy world” ? What does a “preferred term” have to do with Disease Control? What the hell are they spending $25+ BILLION dollars on? When did inanimate objects, firearms, become a disease? How does the word I use or the name I use become a disease?

That flushing sound you hear? That’s the sound of lots our tax money and the economy going down the toilet.
