US Politics Thread: Year 2 of 1000 of the TrumpenReich

Ah, I'd seen some other reporting earlier. That does sound like he's seriously considering it.

The Danes plan to make Greenland a independent nation, meaning it would be a political catastrophe to propose selling it to the US.
However, the US might leverage making Greenland a territory or state, which would be a good offer to Greenland, who would not be able to leverage any political power on the world stage, has zero money for defense and is already defended by the US. 

Access to the US market without tariffs would also be a huge plus for the Greenland economy. 

 

Personally, I think Norway should be given Greenland, as it was taken by Denmark from Norway by force. 

If the US gets Greenland, it would be pretty much the village bicycle of the Atlantic, being passed around from state to state.

I wouldn't mind the US annexing every territorial body that we already pay the majority of defense costs for, tbh. And taxing them. Heavily.

Go ahead, you guys would still probably tax me less than the Norwegian government. 

I would not mind a tax break.

The cost is you no longer get free healthcare, and have an insatiable appetite for crude oil :lol:

Does states not have their own welfare programs?

 

Also, guess what 50% of Norway's export is, and what we have shit loads of around Svalbard and the arctics.

Instead of free health care he would actually get health care. A valid trade.

I am not sure what the health care service in the US is, but Norway's healthcare is "adequate", or a bit worse.

I once met a guy in holding who had his entire hand cut off by a sword and then reattached. It still worked.

 

Also, all of your medicine, procedures, and devices are developed in the US.

I'd be willing to bet you'd feel right at home in a badly run VA facility.

We need to bankrupt our health care and social services at the county, state, and federal level so rich people don’t have to get their hands blistered mowing their own lawns.

Late-stage Roman Republic mentality.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      Might as well make a new thread now that the election is over.
