What is more important? —

1. To return the name of a mountain to its original, legally certified name or

2. To help thousands of men, women and children as their villages wash out to sea nearby?

By the year 2025, when two aerospace projects plan to be running on Mars, the US Army Corps of Engineers says that the native village of Kivalina and a string of other Athabaskan villages along the North Shore of Alaska will have submerged. A few are already gone in 2015.

Many have no running water, no toilets, and no cemeteries (they washed out to sea). The people need help moving.

However, Ohio legislators fight with President Obama for taking away the illegally-bestowed name of “Mount McKinley”, named in tribute to the man when he was the Republican candidate for POTUS, by a gold hunter in 1896.

The ancestors of the people whose villages are washing away in storms and erosion named the mountain thousands of years ago and the State of Alaska agency in charge of these names legally accepted it long ago.

So, what is more important – a Republican name on a mountain, or helping the homeless families, including infants and children?
