[quote=PilgrimsProgress;55984688]I heard that Denmark spends $700M annually on Greenland. What do they get out of it? They should sell that white elephant[/QUOTE

What do you care? It's not coming out of YOUR taxes.

Trump is a real estate guy. Why lease when you could buy?

Biden is not a socialist.

No Dem president has ever been a socialist nor far left anything. The U.S. has elected Dems who are more moderate. In fact extremes from either side are not wanted -- look at history, don't take my word for it. You may *think* a past president is an extremist and you'd be wrong.

The only reason Biden is leading in the polls is because the far left candidates have split their support between 4 or 5 of them, Warren, sanders, Harris and buttigege. When that field narrows ole sleepy Joe is done for. I bet Elizabeth Warren will be your nominee (aka. Pocahontas). Socialist va Trump??? We all know what will happen l.

We should buy Greenland and the feds can sell it into private American ownership. The profit could reduce the deficit. The mining alone would reduce our dependency to China in this area.
Who's “we?”

That idea sounds pretty communist, to be honest.

All of the handwringing about Trump's offer is a crackup. It's the third time (at least) that an offer has been tendered.
There are independent countries with populations smaller than Greenland. Liechtenstein, San Marino, Monaco. Who is to say Greenland could not pull it off?

It's a crackup to you because you support Trump.

Since no MAGAs answered me last time, I'll ask again.

Who is supposed to pay for this, and where is the money supposed to come from? After all, taxation is theft, and I shouldn't be forced to pay for it.
