    OK, this should probably be in the Conspiracy Section but I will leave it up to the Mod Squad! I think they are trying to mess with our heads when they just defy Physics and shift time!

    Daylight Savings Time Sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We spent Millions for research to find out interesting facts about humans like we have a thing called a "Circadian Clock" then go ahead and ignore the facts and play Time Shifters FOOG (For Our Own Good)! Somehow, they think the USA functions and uses NRG like it did in Industrial 1960's, 9:00AM to 5:00PM, wrong!

    They change the time twice a year and screw my internal clock up big-time. I havent needed an alarm clock for 20 years to get up at 4:45 anyways but when they move the clock back an hour, I now get up at 3:45AM and Im falling asleep before 8:30PM!

    This is also a Constitutional Issue. Who/ What gives them the right to mess with "my time" any more than they do just before the Tax Deadline in April????? Where is it written In our BOR's that any Government has the right to give and take my time without my permission?

    Rant over............

    mention this to your doctor. He can give you a sleep aid. In just a couple days your internal clock will be ticking properly. Take the medication on days you don't need to drive. You should be OK to drive but I have had problems on the day after.

    Didn't one of the founders (Ben Franklin???) suggest daylight savings so that farmers would have more time to work with the sun out?

    Could be TW, Ben was correct then but wrong now, probably Ben would Poo his Knickers if he saw how far weve moved technologically but even he would say enough mass time shifting! Tractors have great Lights on them and better Air and heat than some houses, the big ones run off a GPS and the driver only has to stay awake to fill and empty them! Big farms are running 24/7 now, Manufacturing and most Goods and Service Providers have more like an 18 hour a day shift variable than a 12 hour day typical in the 1800's, More like 24 hour in the "Big City".

    I really hate the Idea of sleeping pills, probably better go for a couple of shots of JD before I hit the pillow, maybe that will change my clock. I wonder if I can write that off?....

    One of the many things I love about Arizona. We don't observe that outdated concept. I am in construction and we simply adjust our start time to coincide with daybreak. I know many are ready to start using the term genius but I have never been comfortable with the term ;-)

    Ha! He might have! Of course DST doesn't add more daylight, it just shifts the clock. Chickens wake up at dawn and go to roost at sundown…no matter the clock. You would of thought the farmers could have done the same. :)

    Where's the poll? I vote to s%$# can it!

    Better yet, do it politically. I'll vote the same in two years.

    I agree, daylight savings sucks NOW, but the main purpose of daylight savings back in WWII was to save on fuel. It had some merit back in those days but now it's almost useless.

    We used to have the right idea, but then the anal orifice that was our Governor and the scum that infests our Statehouse changed it. Now we are stuck with DST just like the rest of the Sheeple.
