A recap of yesterday's action alerts. Make phone calls, send letters, emails, tweets, and Facebook posts, and make your opinion known. Don't be a slacktavist, do something, even if that's just sending a strongly worded email. But don't patron places that tell victims of gun violence to go to hell, or workers to go without health care so CEOs can get bonuses.

On Monday, Regal Entertainment Group — which operates Regal Cinemas, Edwards Theaters, and United Artists screens in 38 states — joined the war on health reform, announcing it will cut back non-salaried workers’ shifts to 30 hours per week in order to avoid giving them basic coverage.
The theater chain claims that it is simply trying to “manage [its] budget…in accordance with business needs.” But that assertion rings hollow considering Regal’s soaring profits and lavish executive compensation. In 2012, Regal’s stock went up by over 20 percent, and every single major company executive, including the CEO, CFO, and COO, received a six-figure pay increase. CEO Amy Miles made off particularly well, with her pay rising by 31 percent to $4.45 million for the year, bolstered by a base salary increase of $750,000.

We can't win every battle but we have to make our voices heard. Boycott this theater, steer your friends away from it, choose other places to watch a movie. Don't let those who are already working low paying jobs be forced into less hours and no health care without hitting Regal in the pocketbook.
And Please Remember Regal Entertainment also owns Edwards cinemas and United Artists cinemas as well. Attending any of these is a dollar for Regal's selfish executives.

A Minnesota radio host said he would like to tell the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims to "go to hell" for infringing on his gun rights.
Bob Davis was discussing those affected by the Newtown, Conn., tragedy during a Friday segment of his show, "Davis & Emmer," on Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130, according to Minneapolis' City Pages. The topic focused on how family members of the 26 victims, 20 of whom were between the ages of 6 and 7 years old, have become advocates for gun control. In Davis' opinion, these Newtown families are infringing on his constitutional rights.
