    Weird, isn't it? Landlocked Austria was once governed by one of its admirals, and Switzerland actually has a navy of sorts.

    Of course it's a bubble, but then, all of life's a gamble, innit?
    They do that, here, too.

    The problem is, that's all they do; buy up cheap land and build upscale housing that the previous tenants cannot afford.

    As a result, we have tons of empty housing, and lots of homeless/underhoused people.

    Bubbles are fine, as long as they don't grow too fast, or unless someone cheats.

    Someone always cheats.

    Here's some more amusing nonsense from the retards over at politicalcompass.org -

    https://www.politicalcompass.org/uselection2016

    It remains a mystery to us why Sanders chose to describe himself — incorrectly — as a socialist, and in America of all countries. His position is that of a mainstream social democrat — a Keynesian in the mould of the New Deal, and the mainstream left in all other democracies. You wouldn't need a degree in marketing to see that 'social democrat' would be a much more appealing self-description, so why did he insist on such an unhelpful misnomer? It was helpful, though, to his right wing primaries opponent, who was able to present herself as a centrist, between an off the wall socialist and a quasi-fascist. In this most paradox-packed electoral circus, some of Trump's professed economic positions are actually closer to Bernie's than to Hillary's. Trump’s extremism is on the social scale rather than the economic one. Like Sanders — and unlike Clinton — Trump supported a decent minimum wage from the start, wants free education in state universities, has supported universal health care, consistently opposed the Transpacific Partnership Agreement and wants more bank regulation. Considering the cosy relationship that the Clintons and Trump have enjoyed until almost yesterday (reflected by Trump’s generous support for both Hillary’s senatorial campaigns and the Clinton Foundation) the mercurial Donald's differences may be less than they presently appear. Is it beyond all possibility that a Trump 'bi-partisan' presidency might include a role for his old friend Hillary?
    So much wrong in this paragraph I don't even know where to fucking start.

    cheers
    the only time its not a trap is when you can afford to pay it off within a few years or get someone else to pay it off (and the economy does not collapse from under you while you're doing this...good luck)

    thats it.

    what the fuck, have these people actually looked at who the candidates are? lol

    it's funny these tests dont actually look at people just the things they say in passing.

    how can you possibly get a real test from that?

    yet again i dont believe in tests like this, how can they think that a binary test with biased questions will accomplish anything? its trying to guide you one way as it takes it.. how about non-biased neutral questions for one? lol

    so stupid.

    For us elderly and hard of hearing, why not start at "It remains a mystery to us ..." ...?

    This test doesn't even do that.

    It just assigns positions based on gross misrepresentations of what the authors think people say or believe.

    Trump supports freedom of the press up to the point at which what that free press is saying crosses the line into libelous slander against him and his family...

    What a 'fascist', right?

    Meanwhile Clinton and her race-baiting gender-baiting cohorts are OBSESSED with curtailing freedom of speech and freedom of experience with their trigger warnings and acceptable language codes and aggressive language policing policies....

    ...yet Trump is the 'authoritarian' one apparently.

    Because he supports the idea that people should basically say whatever the fuck they like as long as it's not libelous slander and lives by that very principal himself.

    Trump's policies regarding immigration are specifically focused on NON-US citizens. Illegal immigrants and refugee intact from Islamic war zones. It's a DEFENSE policy not a 'social' policy.

    Nothing whatsoever in common with Nazi persecution of indigenous legal German Jews.

    It's not persecution to deport someone who's not supposed to be somewhere. And it's not persecution not to let someone into your country. It's called upholding the rule of law.

    Clinton's proposed war on the 2nd amendment on the other hand has plenty more in common with the National Socialists of Germany than anything Trump's ever uttered.

    How about questions based on ACTUALLY policies.

    That retarded compass has questions based loaded with weasel works...like someone can't 'feel' this way or that way or this or that is 'regrettable', or it's 'a shame'.
