        PR is beautiful man, as are the girls. They might be crazy and I would in no way, shape, or form ever advocate settling down with one...but on looks alone, there's some fire there.

          University of Greenland football team runs the three yards and a cloud of snow offense making them the perfect fit for the Big Ten.

            I can hear the play-by-play now: "#34 snowplows his way across the line of scrimmage for a 1st down!"

              So Trump is going "green"?
              Or just getting ahead of the climate change to have a Trump property that will still be inhabitable when the earth heats up. Smart guy.
              Just ask him.

                Trump is not going "green". It's his plan to buy Greenland and change the name to Whiteland. You know ice is white but there already is an Iceland.

                  I would hope that even liberals would have to admit this is a better foreign policy initiative than paying $150 billion plus a planeload of currency to Iran.

                    The 2 lands are named backwards. Iceland is actually very nice while Greenland is actually mostly ice.

                    So by Trump acquiring Greenland he's actually expanding ICE.

                    That, plus snow is racist and benefits from its privilege.

                    Oh, and he needs another Island now that Jeffery's been Clintoned.

                      It is cheaper than building a wall to keep the Eskimos out.

                            Russia is definitely getting possessive of the Arctic and has invested considerable resources in building niche Arctic-focused forces and rebuilding old Soviet bases in the north; but the US already outnumbers them strategically on the issue--as the other Arctic nations (Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, etc.) are all strong US allies. Denmark has leased the Thule airbase in Greenland to us indefinitely, so I don't see much of a need to buy the entire territory when we already have a presence there.

                            I understand what Trump is getting at; it just seems unnecessary when the cheaper option for us is to just leave things as-is.

                                PR has some very beautiful areas but driving to them is like driving in a 3rd world country


                                I do not think we can "buy" Greeneland but they can apply for Statehood

                                  don't tell anybody but Greenland is actually ice land Iceland is actually green land.

                                  it can be our little secret.
