Family Research Council Action's Faith Family Freedom Fund Launches Missouri Radio Ad Against Sen. Claire McCaskill

WASHINGTON, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Faith Family Freedom Fund, a super PAC associated with Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), announced a radio ad buy on seven Christian radio stations in Missouri that reach into St. Louis, Kansas City, Branson, Kirksville, Richmond and Lexington. The ad highlights Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D-MO) vote for President Obama's health care law which was rejected at the ballot box two years ago by an overwhelming 71 percent of Missouri voters. The one-minute ad will run through the election.

Of the ad, Fund Chairwoman Connie Mackey made the following comments:

"It's time for Senator Claire McCaskill to be held accountable for her votes against the values of the vast majority of Missouri voters. She was the 51st vote for the government takeover of health care, she supported taxpayer funding of abortion, and opposed the Missouri constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Senator McCaskill is way out of step with the people of Missouri. It's time to repeal and replace Senator McCaskill with a senator who will stand for faith, family and freedom."

The ad features a mother and daughter discussing the Missouri senate race. The script appears below:

Mugs clinking in back ground.

Mom: Oh Jenny, feels like ages since we were able to sit down like this and talk. How are things going?

Jenny: Mom, things are crazy at home and work. Plus, we have an election in a few weeks and I am still not sure who to vote for for U.S. Senate.

Mom: Well, I can tell you who I'm not voting for, and that's that Claire McCaskill.

Jenny: Why? I guess I just haven't paid attention.

Mom: Well everyone's talking about this so-called war on women, and it seems to me that McCaskill is the problem.

Jenny: What do you mean?

Mom: Well Claire McCaskill and President Obama have made the economy worse. Bailouts and stimulus packages haven't helped – and now we have Obamacare to contend with and folks still aren't sure what that's going to do.

Jenny: I know. My boss keeps saying he won't hire until he knows how the new healthcare law will affect business.

Mom: I just don't understand why in a down economy, Claire McCaskilll and President Obama would tack on another expensive program that will cost trillions.

Jenny: It doesn't make sense. Maybe Claire McCaskill needs to go.

Mom: Well, that's what I say.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
