Is the “If women ruled the world, there would be no wars” perception accurate?
Do you remember her..Myra Hindley and others such as Rosemary West and Aileen Wuornos - they are women and known as some of the most evilest people on earth.Heard of a female serial killer called Karla HomolkaShe was jailed for raping and murdering her sister and two teen girls. She lured the victims into a car and with the help of her man, raped and killed them. She was never charged for the murder of her sister so justice wasn’t really served. Not a lot of people know that part. She struck a deal with the prosecutor.Heard of Nannie Doss? Known as the “Giggling Nanny….A serial killer who killed 11 people. in the 1920s. Just look at her, you won’t think it would you?We can go back further to Gesche Gottfried who went on her killing spree between 1813 and 1827..She murdered 15 people, using arsenic. Like Nannie Doss, she liked killing her own family and also believed to have killed her children, her parents, her husbands and her finance. She mixed the arsenic in the food.How about the Blood Countess, Elizabeth Bathory?Serial killer in 16th century and beginning of 17th century. Hungarian noblewoman. She tortured and killed up to 650 girls and young women at her castle in Cachtice, modern Slovakia.Her nickname came about due to her liking to bathe in the blood of her victims because she believed it would help her maintain her youthful looking skin.You can see more, 25 evil women in this video…So no, the wars will continue, as well as the killings, so will a lot of evil in the world. Nothing will really change.Best you put the pedestal most put women on away and burn it to the ground.The world with its darkness will continue even if all the countries were lead by women. Nothing will really change because women, though there is differences biologically, they are same as man - a human being.When it comes to emotions like in situations of divorce, then get ready for your assets to be gone, manipulation using even the children, and the system will help them too.If you put a gang of women together who are average looking and walks in a hot sexy woman who is very attractive, you’ll see the claws come out.All that talk about “We are feminist” is out of the window.Even now you see feminist women bitching about each other, slandering each other, calling each other sluts.So women can also can get ill, diseased, fucked up, become psychopaths, Narcissists, killers, evil, jealous, possessive, revengeful, greedy, envious and cold as ice, without mercy and even with passion in enjoying inflicting pain onto others.
How does an American go about getting a secret clearance (many jobs seem to require one)?
Long story short, you’d need to obtain a federal job that would get you a clearance. You’d need to be in good standing with that job. You’d also need to adhere to all rules, laws, regulations, and any other legal policies that relate to classified information and security clearances.The US government takes classified information very seriously. Obtaining a Secret Clearance is not very difficult. But be sure to be honest and ask questions if you don’t understand anything. As for Top Secret or “TS” clearance, it still isn’t too difficult but you must truly be a trustworthy individual and there are some automatic disqualification situations. There are also specific clearance investigations “above” TS. Such as Top Secret Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI). These may require a polygraph examination.I recommend you google USA Jobs and read their information regarding background checks and clearances for federal jobs.Again, I realize you likely are requesting this to obtain a civilian contractor job and they require you to already possess a clearance. Therefore, you must obtain a federal job first. Usually they require this because clearance investigations are expensive.
Why does Jared Kushner keep updating his SF-86 form?
In the spirit of Hanlon's Razor (“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity”), let’s assume Jared Kushner is honestly just catching up from the frenzy of the campaign, the overwhelm of his White House job, adjusting to family life in a new city, the culture shock of an even more public life than the husband of a Trump, and the sudden auditing and public analysis of every little thing he’s done. Ever. I’d guess Kushner was introduced to and spent five minutes with at least five thousand people last year. I doubt he logged or scheduled every interaction. He now has a part time job reconstructing his past and having his team make sure he updates his SF-86 as his recent history comes into focus. It’s normal to update your disclosures because you honestly didn’t recall at the time you first filed them, many public officials do this and it’s why there’s a process for amending your SF-86.On the other hand…
Can I get a government security clearance with an old (25+ years) possession of marijuana charge? It says NFOG (no finding of guilt) on FBI report.
Tagging onto what Shaban said in his response, if that's the ONLY issue, there are no worries. One thing you may want to be aware of is that the investigator will still ask you the same questions regarding drug use and criminal activity that he/she would if it was an ongoing or current problem: When was the last time you used drugs? Frequency of drug use? Ever sold drugs? Still associate w/people who use drugs? etc. etc. No need to freak out, those are required questions no matter how old or small the drug issue is on the SF-86. Disclose it on your form, remember it's way worse to have the investigator find out about it from other sources than from you. Then it becomes and honesty issue.
