A petition I can get behind

I have the unfortunate experience of living directly next to the state of Kansas. However, one enterprising individual has some up with just the thing our country needs: Kansas needs to change its name.

 

As a proud resident of Kansas City, Missouri, I’m tired of the negative associations and constant embarrassment at the hands of Kansas lawmakers’ and their ridiculous stances.

-In 2005 Kansas earned worldwide ridicule by suggesting that intelligent design be taught alongside evolution in the classroom, asserting that evolution is “an unproven, often disproven, theory”.

-More recently, Secretary of State Kris Kobach agreed to consider removing President Obama’s name from the election ballot because he “lacked sufficient evidence about his birth certificate “.

I think it’s time we take our city back by requesting that the State of Kansas change its name. This may not go down well with some residents, but I believe they’ll come around and instead see this as a massive opportunity! Instead of the anglicized name of a Native American tribe it could be named after something really American! Maybe “Jesusland”, “Godsoldier”, “Republicania”, or “Straightland”. The possibilities are endless! The only real challenge here will be selecting a name, a challenge that can easily be solved by letting white Christian straight people vote on it.

This is truly a win win for both the State of Kansas and Kansas City. Please join me in supporting such a critical cause.
