You would think they would jump at the chance to be part of the greatest country on earth. Of course, they would lose their health insurance, quality education, old age security. But they could all carry AKs and shoot each other.

This is classic Trump deflection. The economy is teetering on the edge of recession and he is saying, quick look over there. And if he did buy it, first thing he would do is disallow any scientists to go there since they keep coming up with more grim news of climate change from the melting Greenland glacier.

''“I think we take it as a sick joke by a crazy president," said Anna Kitse Kko, 63, who has lived in Tasiilaq nearly all her life and teaches English here.'' People around the world have seen his ineptness and craziness. His mouth will do him in.

Depending on the deal, it might mean 56,000 more Americans and another place for industry to expand.
A thought experiment
The most obnoxious among all Arab sheiks is crazy about magnolias. Crazy, I'm telling ya. So he's floating this idea of buying Mississippi and now it's all over the internets. And everybody else from his emirate is speculating, also on Twitter and forums - what are we gonna do with Listener and other 3m Mississippians. Move them to Missouri where they'll be happier, bcs fewer double letters, or just keep them to water magnolias and stuff.

Your feelings?

In the interest of full disclosure, it should be said that the Greenlanders shoot each other (and, sadly, themselves) quite a bit as it is.

Tell them if the price is right, we'll throw in Alabama for free.

Either he needs to go back to real estate and leave the governing to the qualified, or we need to think about the 25th Amendment. This guy is not playing with a full deck.
Sounds like a great time to be letting people in here that don't belong huh?

I have no problem with this as long as it meets legal requirements.

Greenland is a beautiful place, but I was thinking it would be nice for us to buy some worthless tract of land somewhere, say western Canada before the mountains begin. We can give that area special status, and anyone who lives there a special passport that doesn't permit them to freely move into the USA. And then if we get refugee applicants, we just put them put there until the process finishes.
