Gulf of Mexico Name Change

MexicoGulf of MexicoNetherlandsSteve Holland

Time to change the maps... yup!  The Gulf of Mexico my no longer exist.  It would be the Gulf of America.

At least that's what Mississippi State Representative Steve Holland proposed.

This of course peeved some Latino groups.  They claim that if the State of Mississippi changes the name out of disdain for Mexicans, the Mississippi River should be renamed as well.

Wait a minute!!  Holland says it's all a joke, meant to poke at bills that would crack down on illegal immigration.

Annoying Latino GOP groups go even further.

But if you think about it, with all the damage we, Americans, caused the Gulf lately, why not claim the damaged goods as our own.

Either way, hurricanes will find the coast, Mexican or American.
