    And the Danish prime minister says:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...cid=spartandhp

    'The Danish Prime Minister responded to President Donald Trump's interest in buying Greenland on Sunday, calling a sale of the island, which functions as an autonomous territory of Denmark, "absurd."'

    'According to Reuters, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told the Danish broadcaster DR on Sunday that discussion of a sale would be an "absurd discussion."'

    'Frederiksen was also asked about Trump's comments by a local newspaper.'

    '"Greenland is not for sale. Greenland is not Danish. Greenland belongs to Greenland," she said while traveling with Greenlandic Premier Kim Kielsen to visit children from a Greenlandic orphanage, reported Greenlandic newspaper Sermitsiaq.'


    'News that Trump had considered an attempt to buy Greenland had been met with a mix of derision and skepticism after the Wall Street Journal first reported on the issue last week.'

      Actually, that is a good argument for Greenland being taken over by Costa Rica. Costa Rica gets to access Greenland's mineral resources, plus lots of ice cubes...

      Greenland's 56,000 souls get nine month winter holidays , and the ability to access : Costa Rican natural resources, like, uhh fresh fruit!

All kidding aside, in pursuit of the maximum individual liberty allowed by practicality, I can think of no more effective vehicle than a global Anglosphere with the US as its leading partner, sort of a chairman of the board, rather than an outright chief executive.

            Australia would be worth seven stars. Elizabeth II would be the ideal Head-of -State.

                Bloody 'ell no! Future generations of English speakers need better grammar, and definitely deserve better beer. Maybe this is an argument in favor of Canadian leadership. Just need a less crappy dollar is all . . . .

                  Sounds much like the "Dublin regulation" ?

                  https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/wh...-applicants_en

                  Every single asylum application lodged within EU territory needs to be examined - each EU country must be able to determine if and when it is responsible for handling an asylum claim. The objective of the Dublin Regulation is to ensure quick access to asylum procedures and the examination of an application on the merits by a single, clearly determined Member State.

                          If you learn skating from the US' and Canada's finest citizens, then you can play Aussie Rules Football on ice. Can it get any better than that?

                          By the way, Canucks: my boy potted a hatrick on Sunday -- in the Flyers' very own practice rink. If you ever want another Olympic gold, your only chance will be under the Red White & Blue -- 'cause Slick Jr's gonna kick your a$$!

                            I work for Canadians. I think they all have brain injuries. Nice people but not happy unless they are killing people at minus 20C. We will happily take the sticks and incorporate that into the game (heh although the Irish beat us on that with hurling), but you can keep the ice. We prefer our sports to be played in more temperate conditions.

                            Friend, ally and NFI or care about what the others pass as a fun time to hurt each other, eh?

                              We've got that here too, in Van Cortland Park up in the Bronx. Believe you me those Irishmen put on a real show.

                              Now we know why Aussies are brain-damanged: too much sun has baked your noggins into potatoes.
