This is how crazy they’re getting.
This would be Generations Radio host Kevin Swanson on his show this week:
And they have found that with women who are on the birth control pill, there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb. They’re just like dead babies. They’re on the inside of the womb. And these wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.
Twitter: 250,000 Users’ Data Compromised in Hacking Attacks
Twitter said today that it recently detected a series of attempts to hack into user data, and that the attackers may have successfully absconded with some users’ information.
In a blog post Friday afternoon, Twitter explained the situation, and the steps it has taken to fight off the hackers.
We discovered one live attack and were able to shut it down in process moments later. However, our investigation has thus far indicated that the attackers may have had access to limited user information – usernames, email addresses, session tokens and encrypted/salted versions of passwords – for approximately 250,000 users.
Twitter said in the post that a very small number of users were affected by the hacking, but it encouraged everyone who uses the service to ensure that they are practicing “good password hygiene, on Twitter and elsewhere on the Internet.”
Here’s the perspective CBS “News” doesn’t give: In 2012, there were 500 million Twitter users. So when 250,000 of them are hacked that’s BIG news? Really?
My sense is that CBS is desperate to insert the word “Twitter” into its “news” feed so it can get — wait for it — Twitter hits. Aaaah.
I know this is going to be my favorite Super Bowl commercial come Sunday. What. A. Tearjerker:
I know. It’s unbelievable that I’m posting a commercial for God’s sake on my blog but I couldn’t help it.
Former First Dog, Barney Bush, George W.’s 12-year-old Scottish Terrier, died today.
We’re “goin’ down” huh?
I should turn on the TV and watch me some Fox “News.” Wonder how they’re splanin’ this.
Hey, I have an idea. Instead of dealing with the issue of guns-everywhere and mass shootings, let’s just desensitize ourselves to them. And let’s start with the kids:
Students at a high school in Illinois experienced a uniquely terrifying school shooting drill on Wednesday. Instead of conducting a regular school lockdown, Cary-Grove High School administrators simulated gunfire by shooting off blanks in the hallways while students locked their classroom doors, pulled the curtains, and hid.
The new normal?
