nothing different than any other employer outlawing use of the terms **** and ****, only a tad more stupid
again, stupidity cannot (unfortunately) be outlawed
nothing in the law prevents the city of seattle from issuing stupid directions to its staff - for official business
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

this infringes on your rights to free speech as much as the employer prohibiting use of personal cells phones in the work place
certainly, you can still insist on exercising your first amendment right, such that you say those things the employer has placed out of bounds while on the clock. but do not be surprised when you are then without a job for having violated the employer's edict
I'm obviously a mature individual, I'm a Conservative.
Your example may apply if those words were actually offensive.
But a Govt entity arbitrarilly passing laws or edicts against speech like the word " brown bag" exceeds the pale of common sense and I bet a dime to a dollar dollar that their new list of "offensive" words will be challenged.
