Clint Eastwood, the Oscar-winning actor and director, has endorsed Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, during a Sun Valley fundraiser.
“I think the country needs a boost,” Eastwood told The Associated Press as he joined other Romney supporters for the private campaign event on Friday…
“I said, ‘God, this guy, he’s too handsome to be governor, but he does look like he could be president’,” Eastwood joked. “As the years have gone by, I began to think even more … about that.”
Eastwood, 82, said he hoped Romney would restore “a decent tax system that we need badly … so that there’s a fairness and people are not pitted against one another as who’s paying taxes and who isn’t.”
Silly old git. Can anyone guess how he defines a decent tax system?
So maybe you saw my Twitter going nuts tonight. Or you saw Gizmodo’s Twitter account blow up. Or you saw this in AllThingsD. Or this in the DailyDot. Although embarrassing, Twitter was the least of it. In short, someone gained entry to my iCloud account, used it to remote wipe all of my devices, and get entry into other accounts too.
Here’s what happened:
At 4:50 PM, someone got into my iCloud account, reset the password and sent the confirmation message about the reset to the trash. My password was a 7 digit alphanumeric that I didn’t use elsewhere. When I set it up, years and years ago, that seemed pretty secure at the time. But it’s not. Especially given that I’ve been using it for, well, years and years. My guess is they used brute force to get the password, and then reset it to do the damage to my devices.
The backup email address on my Gmail account is that same .mac email address. At 4:52 PM, they sent a Gmail password recovery email to the .mac account. Two minutes later, an email arrived notifying me that my Google Account password had changed.
At 5:00 PM, they remote wiped my iPhone
At 5:01 PM, they remote wiped my iPad
At 5:05, they remote wiped my MacBook Air.
A few minutes after that, they took over my Twitter. Because, a long time ago, I had linked my Twitter to Gizmodo’s they were then able to gain entry to that as well.
This is why i always keep offline local backups of my important data.
Addressing the issue at a news conference in North Las Vegas, Nevada, yesterday, Romney suggested Reid may be doing the White House’s bidding in leading the attack.
“I have paid taxes every year, and a lot of taxes — a lot of taxes,” he said. “So Harry is simply wrong, and that’s why I’m so anxious for him to produce the names of the people who have put this forward. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear the names are people from the White House or the Obama campaign.”
So you’re a Republican politician who could completely destroy the reputation of the Democrat leader by simply releasing your tax returns, and instead you’re claiming you pay “a lot” and trying to reverse the burden of evidence?
Sounds like Reid may have a point.
A new paper just published in the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry uses extensive Freedom of Information Act findings to detail an extremely troubling off-label medical intervention employed in the U.S. on pregnant women to intentionally engineer the development of their fetuses for sex normalization purposes…
The pregnant women targeted are at risk for having a child born with the condition congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), an endocrinological condition that can result in female fetuses being born with intersex or more male-typical genitals and brains. Women genetically identified as being at risk are given dexamethasone, a synthetic steroid, off-label starting as early as week five of the first trimester to try to “normalize” the development of those fetuses, which are female and CAH-affected. Because the drug must be administered before doctors can know if the fetus is female or CAH-affected, only one in eight of those exposed are the target type of fetus.
Because not having a “perverted child” is worth risking the health of her brothers and sisters. You absolutely know that custom adjustment of fetuses is happening.
