I've been ok and dealing with the aftermath of what happened to our family a few months ago.

Getting regular therapy sessions help a lot. Thanks for asking...

IIRC, the polls were quite inaccurate in the last election, and have been since then. The spread between the polls (Rasmussen included) reflects how unreliable they are.

A previous poster said something about "70% of people disapprove..." (with no source)

The polls were dead on. The polls reflected the voters, not the electoral college.
Simple.
Or do you still believe "millions voted illegally"?

Come on. You know polls have a higher resolution than a simple count of the national popular vote. There was polling per state that implied that not only would Trump suffer a huge defeat, but Republicans would probably lose control of the House and perhaps the Senate.

As my Dad says... "shows how wrong you can be sometimes."

Flashback: Obama revokes security clearances for 5M Americans after Snowden:

https://www.politico.com/story/2013/...ce-list-100195

Such equivalent media outrage back then.

Not.

Not.

Except he didn't. Do you actually read the articles you link to?

The Obama administration has ordered a government-wide reassessment of how almost 5 million Americans have been granted classified information security clearances and whether each person currently approved to see sensitive national security secrets truly has a need for such access...

...Clapper asked agencies to perform a top-to-bottom scrub of the teeming rolls of people authorized to access classified information and to remove anyone deemed not to have a so-called need to know...

5 million people held clearances at that time, IN TOTAL. I see no mention of how many people actually had their clearances revoked, but I may have missed it.

However, since I was one of those 5 million at that time, and I still have mine, I can tell you without a doubt it was not 5 million people who had their clearances revoked.

Jesus, man...

You're right - I should have said "reviews" 5M clearances - my bad.

But is the end result any different?

Id sure as hell remove your clearance.

Wait, just a page or 2 ago I renewed his clearance, since he passed the knowledge test related to his clearance. OK, Clarence?

Do you need a vector, victor.

If you post airplane references, I cannot be held liable for my responses.
