Mexico Seeking to Officially Change Name

Mexico`s outgoing president Felipe Calderon thinks after nearly 200 years, it`s time for Mexico to be simply Mexico.

Mexico took the name Estados Unidos Mexicanos (United Mexican States) in 1824, after it won independence from Spain, and as a way to emulate the United States of America.

But Calderon says that was then, and this is now, which is a polite way to say ‘Emulate? We don`t need to stinking emulate.’

And besides, only diplomats and the people who print the money use the whole enchilada.

A name change requires a vote by the congress of the United Mexican States, and no one is rushing forward to support the idea.

That`s probably because they have other things to worry about, like the war with the drug cartels. Ya think?
