Fanatical gamer and GM. Narrative over crunch. I only roll crits when it doesn't matter. America was a better place before they went and made it great again.

Okay, here's my thread on Brennan having his security clearance stripped, offered because I'm seeing a lot of Twitter experts expressing profoundly ignorant opinions about national security issues. First, though, a disclaimer: I haven't held a security clearance in years, and my own clearance was strictly low-level. I'm not passing myself off as an expert here, but I am at least informed.

I turned fifty in October, and I'm just starting to realize all of the ways that being an abused child has molded and shaped me over the years. This thread will be a work in progress, that I can add to over an extended period. I remember having happy childhood moments, mostly reading and playing with other kids; during the abuse itself, I experienced sheer terror. The rest of my childhood was a vague sense of dread-- waiting for more physical abuse.

@dubephnx @tinacha2 @krysmady @Michell55580529 @Juliarmstrong4 @renato_mariotti @Comey @FoxNews I once held a security clearance and handled classified material. Let me tell you, our classification system is a mess... @dubephnx @tinacha2 @krysmady @Michell55580529 @Juliarmstrong4 @renato_mariotti @Comey @FoxNews First of all, the department or branch which originates material determines how it will be classified. Sometimes different agencies classify it differently. Thus a piece of info could theoretically be secret per the Pentagon, top secret per State, and confidential per DoJ.
