Standard time works. So does execution of traitors.


I am..........disturbed.

I've never understood why changing the time is a problem. People live their lives based on when the sun is up. Changing the time twice a year reflects that. If we standardize on the same time year-round most businesses and schools will simply alter their business hours to be open when the sun is up. They will choose to be open 8-4 during part of the year, 9-5 the rest of the year. That seems far more confusing than what we are doing now.

If they don't, you'll have kids getting to school 2 hours before sunup part of the year and getting home right at sundown part of the year. Most construction jobs need sunlight to work. They already change hours with the seasons to take advantage of that. During summers when it is hot, and the sun is up at 6 AM a lot of companies work 6-2 in order to be out of the afternoon heat.

What we are doing now is only a MINOR inconvenience one day a year. No one complains about the extra hour they get one weekend in the Fall. But losing that 1 hour over one weekend in the Spring is just too much for some people to deal with. What we're doing ain't broke. Why try to fix it.

Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

Tie the daylight time bill, to an overreaching tax bill and it will pass in a heartbeat! Fuggn politicians anyway. Things like the daylight bill take away from business they should be doing.

It is just something to get rid of cause it is stupid. The government came up with the ideas and that tells me all I need to now... Only government can set a clock back and think it will ad an hour of daylight. it is something Ocosio Cortez woulf think was a good idea.

I wish they’d outlaw interstate rumble strips. It should be right behind the daylight savings time agenda item.

At least it's not doing any harm.

Most of the chit that gets passed and signed into law now, does our nation grievous injury.
As a stand alone bill, ok, but you and I both know that congress never passes a stand alone bill and the hidden unreported amendments and pork added to this will indeed do harm.


Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

But think of the brawls we'd miss out on!
