Alternate Title: Ruined Thanksgiving Simulator.
I lived in Alaska from 2011-2013, I always heard residents call it Denali. The state changed the mountains name to Denali, but that was only for the state books it was still federally recognized as McKinley.
As for the racists who hate the idea of us giving something back to the native peoples. It isn't just the natives who wanted this change. I never heard an Alaskan call it McKinley regardless of their race. Even Palin calls it Denali.
Alaska has tried for 40 years to get this change, but Ohioan legislators always smack it down. Presently its 16 Ohio congressmen to 1 from Alaska. This is the only way this change would have happened. Alaska made a firm impression in my heart, I'm very happy about this and proud to have been an Alaskan.
Ohio didn't smack it down.
Ohio kept it from getting a vote using an idiotic procedural rule.
Oh wait, not a vote.
It's something like the governmental department with the power to change the name cannot change the name if some part of congress has taken up the issue.
So ohio has 'taken up the issue' every year for the past 40 years to block any change.

Ohio is such a crap state that they don't even have anything good to name for their president so they stole a mountain from Alaska.
On one hand, clearly the name should never have changed. On the other hand, yeah, it's Ohio. Of course they're gonna be mad about this. They have literally nothing else going for them.
Suddenly conservatives care about the legacy of President McKinley. I've read they're rants where they're suddenly rambling over facts they just learned to express how important McKinley was. Don't worry his legacy remains the same once this blows over America will go right back to not giving a shit about him.
Ohio gave us 8 presidents and McKinley and Grant are the most notable.
Wait what's worse about Ohio than other states? I mean, aside of our depressed deteriorating cities, history of gross political corruption, and Buckeye fans?
aren't you also one of the fatter ones?
Eh, just name a new Cedar Point roller coaster after McKinley. Everyone's happy!
The best thing about Ohio is that it's not West Virginia.

The fox news article about this that morning was on fire with guys like this spamming racist shit all day long.
The auto-updating message board program actually couldn't keep up.

Oh, just fucking die, old white people.
Nobody wants your idealized 1950s bullshit world anymore.

The real question needs to be why we let a mountain be named after some potato-eating, shamrock sniffing irish man?
I don't care what they say; I need to see that green nigger's birth certificate to prove he wasn't born in Ireland.
I'll be damned if I recognize that bog-trotter as Commander in Chief.
More like Leprecoon in Chief.
We need to take back America for the REAL Americans.

If McKinley was such a good president then why was he assassinated?
He was so awesome he made the rest of the politicians look bad?

You'd figure that nature would make it physically painful to be this dumb, but somehow this guy seems to be in a pretty good mood.
|John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-09-01 |
So this guy lives in Ohio, and he's mad at Obama for" sticking his nose where it doesn't belong" , as if how they name things in Alaska is his damn business.

MT MCKINLEY'S PEAKS ARE NOT FRICKIN BLUE!!!!
#Obama, CHANGE IT BACK!!!
I'm torn on this. On the one hand, I fully support local self-determination, as well as the overturning of jingoistic federal propaganda.
On the other hand, Alaskans want this, and screw them! Bunch of snow-bound savages. They don't even have Trader Joe's up there.
Help me out here, Cena. Whom should I be siding with?
Alaskans of course. We've been fed up with Ohio's imperialism. We're not snow savages, we're noble and brave like the Ice Climbers.
"Noble"? That's weird. I just looked up "Alaska" in Burke's Peerage, but nope, no entries. And whaddaya mean "we", Carolina-boy? You live on the complete opposite corner of the country! Stop fronting!
Upon further reflection, I think maybe the best answer here would be a compromise between Alaskans and Ohioans. Mt McKinley should stay Mt McKinley, and in exchange, the Ohio River could be renamed to, I dunno, the Sarah Palin River. Everyone gets something, everyone wins!
Alaska is still in my heart. It was also my first unit, and I'll probably return someday.
I hope you can. Just keep your fingers crossed that it's still named Alaska, and not PresidentTrumpLand.

Pfff~I just avoid all this muck and call it by it's proper Russian name "Большая Гора Денали"
|EvilHomer - 2015-09-02 |
Why would he want to make an Obama statue out of coal? That makes no sense; Obama is opposed to the coal industry, and this gentleman is surely aware of that fact already. Is he trying to be ironic?
Obama's skin tone is nowhere near dark enough to be properly depicted by coal. He would have been better of saying that Hershey, Pennsylvania should make a life-sized chocolate statue of him.
