No offense but it's this type of apathy and a lack of nationalism now intrinsic among the American populace that is frightening to people(like me).
The reason many of us are outraged by this is because we value our dominion over the incorporated lands of America.
----and please understand I mean 'incorporated lands' in terms of governance solely....not the big bad evil people who make companies and money and....

Stormfront? Aryan Nation? Christian Identity?

ETA: What I mean to say here is, do any of these groups reflect your considered philosophy? I have never heard anyone else other than adherents of those and similar groups use the word nationalism in place of patriotism as you did, as well as noting our "dominion" over other races.

I'm asking questions not making statements here. Thanks if you choose to answer honestly.

I'm honestly more upset about Bear Grylls filming for his survival show up here than either Obama being here, or McKinley being renamed Denali.

Oh look another thread blaming Obama.
Can I blame him for a grey hair found in my nether region I found today

This type of "making everyone's business mine" and rampant, blind nationalism among the American populace is frightening to me.

People need to GTFO of other people's business. The name of this mountain is NONE of our business. It's for Alaska to decide. It doesn't affect the rest of us ONE bit! If the opposite of being a "busy body" is considered to be apathy, then I'll take apathy every day!

Get out of my head, get out of my uterus, get out of my relationship, get out of my house and MYOB! (Mind your own business!)

I myself can think of more descriptive names for most politicians, but, to each their own.

Do you have a specific issue with the mountain being named what the People of Alaska wanted it to be called?

The Alaskan Legislature requested this name-change back in 1975.

Like I said, it won't change much for us up here. Our McDonald's might have to change the name of their "Alaska-only" burger they sell here:

Well honestly that sandwich should be called, "Heart attack on a bun."

Yeah, it's huge. It's like a double quarter pounder with an extra bun in the middle. Carbohydrate city.

But hey, we need extra calories to stay warm in the winter...

I actually remember when every Big Mac was built similarly.

That may be a bit of a misconception. With the Japanese current the coast of Alaska isn't all that cold. Interior, hell yeah. In southern Ontario I'd bet we have colder winters. Northern Ont. where I lived in the 60's for sure. -40. That's the same on both scales.

It was a mild winter last year...

It gets -20F sometimes in the winter here. If you go a little further inland, even 50 miles it can get quite a bit colder. We're supposed to have another low-snow/warmer "El Nino" winter.

I don't have a heated garage, so I'm not complaining!

Yeah, my North Face "Dark Star" sleeping bag is rated for -40C/-40F ...most people don't know the two scales meet there. I haven't tested it out to temps that low, but it was the warmest synthetic bag I could find at the time. Down may be warmer...but its useless when wet.

Oh, and the locals didn't stop calling their town Mauch Chunk when it officially became Jim Thorpe, PA. I would bet that it has always been Denali to the native Alaskans.

But it was the locals in Mauch Chunk that made that call, if I read the plaque correctly. Nice place...warmer than Alaska.

The reason many of us are outraged by this is because we value our dominion over the incorporated lands of America.

Which, I guess...supersedes the feelings of the Inuit? Because why????


...they were there first...

Or, are you suggesting that they aren't actually citizens???
Somehow?

We, who? Who is outraged, exactly? You, the people of Texas? Value your dominion over Alaska? Wait - what ARE you talking about? Do you know that Alaska is a state of the union?

And I (an American citizen) don't "value" my dominion over the land any more than a flea "values" their dominion over a dog.
