    We already have a big Air Force Base there. Thule AFB, our northern-most base.

    It could be a new home for Ted Dawson, AOC, Al Gore and the rest who think global warming is melting everything. Go live there and enjoy your landscape of glaciers and polar bears.

    This is all part of the plan to restart Project Infinite Walrus to counter Russia’s moves to seize control in the Arctic.

    Meanwhile, somewhere in Texas, Bill Dauterive is gibbering incoherently.

    It would be either the second or third time has happen HST proposed to buy Greenland after WWII, think there was one other time. Don't remember the proposed price.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just invade? And is it me or has Denmark been a little chesty lately?

    I'm trying to be open minded here.... we're looking at this place being potentially subtropic in a few years, so let's take a look at some numbers.

    Actually, Greenland has been identified as a strategic location for many things in America's history. Like military advantages, weather radar, and air shipping lanes to Asia. I don't know why people think the question posed by Trump is such a ridiculous idea.

    My military friends tell me Greenland and Iceland are loaded with hot women of Scandinavian descent.

    Says there's nothing to do there most of the year but drink and f. A good years duty if you can get it.

    Sounds like a sound investment.

    I remember reading somewhere that there is a really nice golf course there. Where, not sure. Just food for thought.

    And, FWIW, Scandinavia as a whole is packed with some hot women.

    There's not much in Greenland but oxes and walrus. If you're into that sort of thing.

    My Marine buddy was talking about Iceland but I assumed Greenland was similar.

    We tried to buy it in the 50s, I could actually get behind this move.

    Rename it Trumpland.

    Remember that the purchase of Alaska was called Seward's folly. That's turned out well for us.
    Louisiana purchase seemed to work out as well.

    If the Greenlanders had a referendum and agreed with the deal - go for it.

    I've fueled the Thule turnaround many times while stationed at Goose AFB. The Ann Margret-likeness flight attendant went missing for a few days. We asked what happened to her. A crew member told us she walked into a C-118 propeller at McGuire AFB.

    Well, it would bring down the average temp in the USA and thus help in global warming.:)

    Maybe the goal is to ship all illegals when they cross the border immediately to Greenland? They can become citizens only of US/Greenland and they can govern themselves and pay taxes, etc...Be pretty hard to come back to the mainland US illegally. Those that claim asylum get shipped there to. Greenland would become the new melting pot. Think of it as a giant Alcatraz except with no true prison. US can join the globalization process by creating a new shit hole country for people to go to, one that is a little better than their prior shit hole country. Continue legalized immigration. Problems solved, families stay together when they come over illegally and they can go find work, and they get a new chance in another country via the easy illegal/asylum route. Be plenty of good fishing you would think.:)

    My favorite.
    'Donald Trump is going to buy Greenland and Mexico is going to pay for it,' wrote Jesse Ferguson. My personal favorite. (See? I can laugh at my own team).

    Does anyone think the Vikings might return to Greenland to raise cattle again?

    Does anyone believe the Warmists might study the Medieval Warming Period to see how it compares to Al Gorleone's weather ruse?

    Does anyone believe Barbara Streisand might shut down her air conditioned horse barn and buy a back yard clothes line as she urges her fans to do?
