    You keep announcing how Obama is going to do something terrible before his term is up. You seem pretty confident in that position. There's maybe a year left. Would you be willing to engage in a little bet along those lines? You win if the terrible thing comes to pass, and I win if it doesn't. Easy enough.

    I doubt you'd be willing to do an account bet, so how about a signature bet? Either would be fine by me, though.

    It shouldn't be too hard to hammer out terms that are acceptable to both of us.

    First I didn't bring racism into the thread. But I thought it would be one of those silly things that people would say "Obama hates America so he renamed a mountain". Some extreme position instead of people having reasonable discourse. It's never maybe he wanted to honor the indigenous people, no it's he hates America and is a race baiter. So by saying our founding fathers were flawed obviously means I want to take Washington off the money and have no one ever talk about him.

    The state has been trying to get it renamed for over 40 years and at no point would you ever see or hear it referenced as anything but Denali.

    Of all the things to get mad at BO for, this isn't one of them.

    Why discuss the ethics of the collateral damage in the drone war in Pakistan when we can get outraged about the renaming of a mountain nobody remembered existed until now?

    There's a lot of people who just want a reason to hate Obama I just can't always tell if it's because of his race, politics, or just fear of change. Whatever reason for the hate making a big deal over changing the name of a mountain is silly.

    Every serious climber I know calls it Denali. I don't actually know anyone who calls it Mt. McKinley.

    There are people who get mad at Obama over everything, including their genital warts.

    That's why I mentioned collateral damage, as in people who weren't intended targets. I know Pakistan is a shitty place full of assholes but not everyone contained within its borders deserves to be vaporized by drones.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not necessarily saying its more bad than good but its a very complicated issue. We're routinely bombing a country we haven't declared war on and in the process killing hundreds of civilians. At the very least its more worthy of a thread and outrage than the renaming of a mountain that was unofficially already called Denali.
