    If he bought Greenland, he could be King. And Melania could be Queen.

    I would definitely retire there if it became a US territory! It would be like Maine without the Lefties. And, gun rights won't be under attack.

    But American Greenland won't be like Iceland. Just like American Samoa is different from Samoa.

    It was my indirect way of suggesting the oil refineries and coal fired electricity plants will be built in the first week.The first two days after the handover will be devoted to installing the surveillance state and ending Internet freedom of speech.

    Greenland and Iceland were Western Viking settlements. I know that because I am originally from the farthest Western Viking settlement. Oklahoma....

    Has anybody ever made a semi-automatic smooth-bored double-barrelled shotgun? I can't remember ever hearing of one.

    Greenland is a socialist form of government.
    In Greenland, only licensed gun owners
    6 may lawfully acquire, possess or transfer a firearm or ammunition. Automatic or semiautomatic weapons are forbidden.

    The original semi auto shotguns I saw were in the last days of Rhodesia.The Rhodesian Army probably did not think to make them double barreled, by that time they were mounting 50 cals side by side in Japanese truck beds.

    I can't imagine why Denmark would entertain this nonsense, but....

    In order to get this through Congress he's going to have to work The Art Of The Deal, so howzabout puerto rico and greenland simultaneously become the 51st and 52nd states?

    Hey, we're talking fantasy-realm anyway, right?

    If the Trumpists retain their momentum there will soon be parts of USA applying to Greenland in hope of being accepted as overseas rerritories under Greenland rule.
