Daylight Saving Time

"When told the reason for daylight saving time the old Indian said…
‘Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.’"

I don't know why we still go through that ritual twice a year. At least the computers, cell phones, anything connected to the internet will show the correct time. But my old alarm clock, the microwave and the stove still have to be reset manually. So does the radio in my van and car. Did I forget anything I wonder?

    It is a fiendish ploy by government and big business to aggravate the hell out of people, thus diverting their attention from the illegal, perverted and devious things they are up to behind our backs.

    I agree with you waylander, A fiendish plot. Some here say, to get more light for golfing, or tennis, or boating, what ever the rich do for fun.
    I don’t need the silliness.

    The extra sunlight fades the drapes.
    We had a premier of our state,some years back who refused to countenance daylight saving…He thought the sun shone outta his ass and he wasnt getting up an hour earlier for anybody.

    A day is a day, 24hrs are 24hrs and the only argument that can be changed is for the time of sunrise and sunset. But that has no influence on the time we live only on the time we can safe energy. Does that really matters?
