Franklin County Storm Damage

The same storm system that produced the devastating tornado in Moore Oklahoma hit Missouri Last night. Ameren Missouri reports that overnight about 10 thousand Missourians lost power. According to authorities the worst storm damage was in Southwest Missouri. Franklin County had a few reports of power lines going down in the Labadie area but crews have cleared the damage. Currently less than 500 Franklin county residents have no power. The only confirmed tornado to cause damage in Missouri overnight hit Hannibal where some roofs have been torn off and homes have been damaged. Flash flooding has been reported in scattered areas with some observers reporting as much as two inches of rain in a short time.

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.
