Honestly, I think purchasing Greenland is not a terrible idea, prima facie. I would vaguely support any President's suggestion to buy it. At the very least, it's not the worst idea of the Trump Presidency.

Where it all falls apart is in the execution. The idea of buying Greenland seems reasonable until you realize:
1) The Danish government is not going to even entertain the notion. I don't think the Danish government is having trouble maintaining Greenland and need the money.
2) As far as I know, the people of Greenland don’t like the idea.
3) Trump is a terrible negotiator, and will somehow fuck this up.

The fact that Trump, after the negative public reaction, is still serious about it is kind of proof of #3.

I remember when the 2nd greatest leader of the jews told his followers there were good Egyptians on both sides!

Itís pretty funny and interesting watching the many christian cultists who were certain Bill Clinton or omg the anti-christ himself, Obama, was fulfilling the many prophecies to bring about the end of the world. Now that someone who matches the anti-christís description (reasonable given the anti-christ was Nero) exists they are fawning all over him, just like the bible says false believers would do, and no one seems to see anything wrong with it, as if they never really read the story or prophecies in the first place.

In many ways Iím thankful itís Trump, a barely controllable toddler, theyíve decided to worship. As long as Trumpís around, all white nationalist plans are on questionable footing. They could put everything in place to sweep the country of all non-whites and Trump could still suddenly 3am tweet fire their lynch pin, while unpromising a bunch of money he said he would give them that theyíve now already spent.

Currently we have the organized hardcore violent white nationalists being led by conartists and shit stirring cowards who will happily take their money and pretend tough then skip town when it really gets tough.

Yeah, but the chilling thing is when you read contemporaneous accounts of Hitler from before the Nazis took control - he was regarded as a buffoon. And fascist dictators aren't always the brightest types in general.

It may even help them in some way to be a bit idiotic - by getting others to underestimate how dangerous they are. Not because they're all secret geniuses, but because people overestimate how genius their systems are, and don't consider that a sufficiently sociopathic idiot being put in charge can do as much damage as it can. Perhaps you could say they underestimate the raw power of power, and think it requires intelligence to wield destructively. And he has some more intelligent* (but far less charismatic, to be fair) sociopaths around him, like Stephen Miller.

One thing that's probably good is that Trump is old, fat, has a horrible diet and apparently can't walk up a hill without a golf cart, so he's probably not too long for this world.

And to be fair, Trump seems to be even stupider in many respects than many of the dictators he aspires to having as peers. He's pretty bottom of the barrel, and the US system, while it has serious problems, does less to cover up his numerous failings.

*More intelligent than Trump doesn't mean a genius by any means.

REPORTER: 109 people a day die from guns in the US. Do you see that as a public health emergency?

TRUMP: I do. I do. I do. I do. And they die for a lot of other reasons, too.

In addition, it appears that the U.S. has "great mental illness."

Oh indeed and I think thatís what many think they have gotten but Trumpís not just a buffoon, his narcissism and poor mental development makes him such an unstable buffoon that cares for no one and nothing but himself to such an extent that heís uncontrollable. His illiteracy keeps him from understanding any of the complexities or connecting with any group more than just base emotions in the moment. Like how heís now upset that the mean Lady of Denmark didnít tell him to fuck off in a nicer way.

If we look through his past, Trump has a history of shafting everyone, and not just the Ďotherí guys, but pretty much anyone that comes within his sphere gets shafted in someway because no matter what he says his singular purpose is to himself. Where are his cabinet members or his previous business partners, all gone.

Thatís the problem when dealing with a toddler with power. Itís all basically a dice roll to see if youíre the unlucky target of his tantrum, and the more you roll the dice the more chances of hitting snake eyes. Itís also why the few that stayed for as long as they did, were also the ones happy to play dolly to his whims and tell whatever fabricated stories were needed to keep him happy like a good puppet in a puppet show.

Those who are smart know that the only way to get any control over Trump is through the daughter he wants to fuck, as sheís pretty much the only person with constant sway over the president, and even then itís more of a nudge.

Thatís not to say this isnít all bad, but it could all be worse if he had a well oiled Bush and Cheney grade puppet presidency that was pushing the white nationalism as hard as our current Toddler in chief.

French tourists face six years in jail over claims they stole Sardinia sand | World news | The Guardian

Quote:
A pair of French tourists could face up to six years in jail after allegedly stealing 40kg (6st 3lbs) of sand from one of Sardinia’s pristine beaches.

Border police found the white sand, taken from Chia beach in the south of the Italian island, stashed into 14 large plastic bottles in the boot of the couple’s car.

...

Vigilantes patrol the beaches and signposts clearly warn it is forbidden to take sand. But unaware of the seriousness of the offence, many tourists find the sand an irresistible keepsake.
I suppose if you're going to steal sand, 40kg isn't much ...

Is Trump's deep fear and envy of Obama behind his plan to purchase Greenland? | News | The Guardian

Quote:
The president’s real reason for cancelling? Barack Obama was due to visit the country two weeks later. “Trump was terrified of the contrast between the reception that former president Obama would get, and that he would get,” Frum said on Radio 4’s Today programme. “He began looking around for an excuse as to why he couldn’t go to Denmark – Greenland became it.”
I choose to believe this.
