    Maybe we can schedule a 2 & 1 with Denmark. What's their coach's buyout?

    I would have less of an issue with it if we (the usa) was debt free. Any riches it holds will take years to re-coup, all the while adding to our debt.

    A false flag operation with terrorists from Greenland will be our reason to do it... :D

    @tarponbro I mean, I wouldn't. I just know that many would.

    I think it would just cost less money to send Kid Rock and Ted Nugent to steal the secret vials of science held deep within the ice sheets. Send them alone, but give them enough AR-15s to fend off the 30-50 feral hogs guarding the vials of science.

    Erroneous and slanderous. You have no idea it was just one night.

    I believe it was more than one night, and he didn't pay for the night(s), he paid to keep it/them silent.

    I’m pretty sure that the U.S. was not debt free during any of our previous land purchases, so that aspect doesn’t work for me. There are probably some better arguments against buying Greenland.

    It's pretty well known around White House "intelligence" sources that Greenland is stockpiling WMDs.

    I'm just surprised he actually paid for what amounts to contract work.

    I've heard that the pay-per-use plan is safer and more cost effective than a locked in lease. I wouldn't know, but that sage advice comes from reliable sources. :devil::D

    I heard Trump also said he's going to make Mexico pay for it.

    I guess now might be the time to buy Louie CK stock. It can probably only go up.

    If somebody "owns" it, that's never been an issue for the US. My main concerns are that it would only be used for oil and future trade routes, and that private owners would buy up acreage without concern for ecology. I still think it's a good idea.
