Backstoppers are Putting the Second Annual Hats Off to Backstoppers Weekend

The Franklin County Backstoppers are putting the second annual Hats Off to Backstoppers weekend November 3rd and 4th. Uniformed personnel from the area’s police, fire, and ambulance departments will be stationed at shopping centers and even intersections in the county passing out informational stickers about the Backstoppers in exchange for a cash donation. The Backstoppers organization was started in 1959 and provides needed support and financial assistance to the spouses and children of all local and county police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and EMT’S who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Washington Police Chief Ken Hahn is the chairman of the Franklin County Backstoppers.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
