The People's Cube ^ | October 5, 2013 | El Presidente

Posted on 10/05/2013 2:15:50 PM PDT by EveningStar

At His Majesty's Superior Residency, begun and held in Washington, D.C. in the fifth reign of Barack Obama I, by the grace of Government, socialism, political correctness, and social justice, King, Defender of the Faithless, has, by his greatness, and moral superiority, thus declared that the racist and bigoted offensive name Washington "REDSKINS" should be changed to a more fitting and progressive title, worthy of the mediocrity it so deserves.

See, Redskins is actually a shortened name for Red Foreskins. That’s what happens when you, uh, love yourself too much.

Satire or reality? It’s getting harder and harder to tell.

The peoples cube used to be satire, but joining them in suggestion, I propose “The Washington Welfare”.

The team should be grateful for the name. It is probably the only thing keeping Obama from forcing the team to promote Obamacare.

It's humor but it's based on a real news story:

When the Redskins were a great team they had a front line known as “The Hogs” and i never heard a single fat person complain. I kinda liked “The Hogs” and running back Jon Riggins with his mowhawk hair cut. As far as changing a teams name well then the people that want the name changed should pay for all the new equipment and jerseys including the ones that fans already own.

The President is a busy guy, dealing with those evil republicans on the budget between golf and fundraising. We all really want to know what he thinks about the redskins.

The answer is so simple. and you csn actually retain part of the name. As the best team names do, like the 49’ers and Steelers, it would also link a city trait ot the nickname

With DC’s rabble of overpaid bureaucrats, lobbyists, and hangers on spreading the wealth of the rest of us to themselves-and their 100 voting record for dems/progressives, just drop the “skins”

New name: Washington Reds
Logo - Red flag with hammer and sickle
Motto ‘Si Se puede” (In honor of NFL/Hispanic recognition month)

Then, Obama will be proud.

Mr. Obama has the absolute right to name the team anything he likes— as soon as he buys the team. Until then, keep your lip zipped (think of how much you have said in actually leading this country.)
