Lynn Stuart Parramore, AlterNetHaving seen this movie, yesterday afternoon, I would have to cast my vote for The Great Gatsby being an excellent movie. I confess, having seen the afternoon showing, I did leave the movie theater, hungry, so I picked up supper. In addition, I found it as a nice reminder that clothes are part of character development in any good story. Since my soon to be e-book takes place on the fictional planet--Archaea. I left the theater ready to start writing and imagining what they would or should be wearing to reflect both their Class structure and Religious Extremism.

Now They Want to Take Away the 8-Hour Day and 40-Hour Week

House Republicans are pushing a bill that takes away extra pay for overtime, substituting "comp" time instead. READ MORE»
THIS--THIS IS WHY I HAVE WRITTEN AND WILL CONTINUE TO WRITE--GOD SAVE US FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!!! After all, it is the Middle Class That Is the True Backbone of Society--Yes, The Family Does Matter, but when the parents are trapped is low paying jobs, then the parents are forced to spend more time at work=LESS TIME WITH THEIR FAMILY. IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY REALLY WAS PRO-LIFE AND NOT ANTI-CHOICE-- THEY WOULD SEE THIS.
In addition, this is, in the long run, anti-business, the more hours employees have to spend working=LESS TIME AND LESS MONEY TO BE CONSUMERS, WHICH PUT OTHER COMPANIES OUT OF BUSINESS. This bill ultimately drives customers away from business. Stop-Think--What happens when people stop seeing movies--The movie theaters start laying off employees, those employees can no longer afford to go out and eat, so restaurants start laying off, restaurant employees can no longer afford to go out, so they stop hiring babysiters. NEED I SAY ANY MORE!!!
THE RICH DO NOT SPEND ENOUGH MONEY TO KEEP THE ECONOMY GOING--THEY CANNOT BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO FEW OF THEM.
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THIS BILL SHOWS HOW MUCH THE REPUBLICANS ARE OUT TO DESTROY AMERICA.
BUT--BUT THERE IS AN UP COMING ELECTION IN 2O14--THIS BILL AMONG MANY MANY OTHERS ARE WHY WE NEED TO VOTE EACH AND EVERY REPUBLICAN OUT OF OFFICE--STARTING WITH NRA'S SEN ROB PORTMAN AMONG MANY MANY OTHER FROM OHIO--That also includes Rep. David Joyce.
