Yeah, because Yellowstone has been historically known by the locals as Rosa Parks National Park ::)


OK then, we'll just rename corn flakes to maize flakes, and the Colorado Buffaloes will be renamed the Colorado Tatankas.

That would be dumb.  Tatanka only means buffalo in the Lakota language and I don't think the Lakota really roamed in Colorado. 
Turd - I have never really bought into the genius that is Turd.  I know he is well loved and considered a great poster.  His brand of humor just doesn't do it for me.

Donald Trump: I'll Change Denali Back to Mount McKinley
Sep 1, 2015, 10:38 AM ET
By BENJAMIN BELL and ALI WEINBERG


Donald Trump, apparently assuming he will secure the White House, tweeted on Monday evening that he would reverse the decision announced by President Obama to change the name of Alaska's Mount McKinley back to the traditional name Denali, saying it is an affront to the Buckeye State.

"President Obama wants to change the name of Mt. McKinley to Denali after more than 100 years. Great insult to Ohio. I will change back!" read the tweet, issued from the account of the real estate mogul.

The decision by the president to change the name of the mountain named for President William McKinley, who was from Ohio, has divided lawmakers, and not necessarily along party lines.

Speaker John Boehner of Ohio said he was "deeply disappointed" in a statement while GOP Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski offered her praise for the change.
