This Saturday, Just Say No To The Clock-Changing
Madness: It’s Pointless And Dangerous

Original Article

Posted By: RockyTCB, 10/31/2023 5:48:02 AM

This weekend, hundreds of millions of Americans will dutifully set their clocks back one hour, convincing themselves that they’ve “gained” an hour – despite spending at least part of it resetting all their timepieces. Americans should instead refuse to play along. Few government mandates combine such utter pointlessness and serious public health harms than the twice-a-year switch on and off Daylight Saving Time. It’s time to end the madness. First, despite its label, “Daylight Saving Time” does not save daylight. It doesn’t even save energy. Two studies looked at energy use before and after changes in DST laws.

The only thing I like about DST is that the kids that ride the bus or walk to school do not have to do it in darkness. That extra hour makes a difference in that regard, everything else? Nah, I am not a fan.

I still don't understand why this is even an issue. It's been done for decades. Your even told when to do it. It's not like it's a surprise. I personally don't care all that much about it getting dark earlier or trying to figure out how to change the time in my car. Which is a whole other issue. If my laptop can change to the correct time without me doing anything, then why can't the computer in the car do the same thing?

Poster #1 - - There is NO "extra hour." The goobermint can't create extra daylight - - even though most of the dumb, egomaniacal, corrupt bureaucrats think they can. The goobermint can only play with the clock dials - - in a pretend game of daylight "saving" time. If the goobermint could create more daylight - - why not have round-the-clock sunshine? Please don't cede our beautiful English language to the commies. Don't use any of the words they try to shove in our faces.

There is no need for universal time changes. Governnents, businesses and schools are free to change their operating hours.

Poster 1 has it backwards! DST causes schoolkids to walk to their bus stop in the dark. Standard time is closest to when the sun is directly overhead at noon. The only state I can think of where children find darkness when they go to school on standard time is Alaska. The time change we see approaching now is the fallback to standard time. It makes much more sense to permanently stay on standard time than to go to DST all year long. Go on standard time and quit subjecting everyone to a day of time adjustment twice a year.

People fly across time zones all the time, it’s not that big a deal, especially just one hour. Today, here in Boise, sunrise is not until 8:21 am, well after both high and middle schools have started classes. This area is really weird, as we are at the same longitude as Palm Springs Ca, but we’re on Mountain time, GMT -7. From a purely geographic standpoint this longitude should be GMT -8, Pacific time. so our sunrise and sunset are much later than other places. Permanent DST here would not be good. Permanent standard time would be OK.

Ever since I was a kid, I've loved DST. It meant an hour longer I could play outside before Mama hollered down the street for me. An hour longer, as an adult, I could putter around the yard and garden after work. I wish we were always on DST. I've never understood the vehemence some have against it.

Elementary students need to ride the bus in the daylight. It is too dangerous for these little ones to be out by the road in the dark. If no Daylight Savings time, then change the hours for the students.

I disagree with the OPINION expressed in the article. I LIKE the present system. Daylight is around longer in the summer months, and shorter in the winter months, and the effect is more pronounced the farther toward the North and South poles one is located. Tilt of the axis of the Earth's rotation and all that. What the present system does, is to roughly align the kids going to school, and people with 'regular hours' jobs going to work, with the first hours of daylight, and I am in favor of that. I was in school in -what, 1973 or so- when they tried year-round DST. The result was in the wintertime, school kids were out waiting for the school bus in the pre-dawn darkness, the coldest hour of the day on the coldest days of the year. Not good. On the other hand, in the summer with it's longer days, Standard Time means waiting a couple of hours after the sun is up before starting the school day and the work day. This wastes the daylight hours. It results in an hour less daylight after school, or after work, that people can do what they want -before darkness sets in- every evening. I say KEEP the present system! It ain't perfect, but it sure beats the alternatives!

If you are like us, you’re sick and tired of being labeled a “denier” any time you challenge the left’s agenda. Don’t believe the earth will be destroyed unless we all live like cavemen? You are a climate denier! You worry about side effects from an experimental new vaccine. Vaccine denier! And if you suspect that election fraud is a real problem, you’re an election denier!

Tens of millions of Americans, though not enough to keep his malign presence out of the Oval Office, were years ago sick of Barack Obama opening his mouth and spouting off about whatever subject he chose to educate us on. After enduring eight years of pretentious lectures, we thought we were finally rid of him in 2017. But no, he’s still enlightening his inferiors, which in his mind is everyone who isn’t him, most recently to link market-based systems to slavery. Such mean-spirited nonsense deserves a Fisking.

Anyone following the news might be confused by recent talk of offshore wind projects in trouble, automakers pulling back on EV production, and now multi-billion-dollar bailouts for the green-energy industry. How could that be, since President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats rammed through $370 billion in “clean” energy subsidies a little more than a year ago? When Biden signed the criminally misnamed “Inflation Reduction Act” in August 2022, he boasted that it was “the most aggressive action ever — ever, ever, ever — in confronting the climate crisis and strengthening our economic — our energy security.”

When it comes to the Israel-Hamas war, Americans have made a clear choice: a significant majority support Israel, not Hamas, while an even larger majority now call antisemitism a “serious” problem, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll reveals. But a shockingly high 20% of Democrats say they support Hamas in the current conflict, despite reports of blood-curdling barbarism committed against innocent Israeli men, women, and children. Just over half of Democrats say they support Israel. Amid the backdrop of the Oct. 7 attacks against Israel by the terrorist group Hamas, I&I/TIPP asked Americans this question:

In our decades of experience covering politics, we’ve never seen a poll as devastating to an incumbent president as the one CBS News/YouGov poll published over the weekend. The short version is that more voters think they would be better off if Donald Trump returns to the White House than they would if Joe Biden stays there. Think about that for a moment. Then there’s the New York Times/Sienna College poll, also published over the weekend, showing that Trump leads Biden in five key swing states, and by wide margins: 10 points in Nevada, 6 points in Georgia, 5 in Arizona and Michigan, and 4 points in Pennsylvania.

It allows Iraq to transfer frozen electricity payments into Iranian-owned bank accounts in Europe and Oman.

In the aftermath of another disappointing election night for Republicans, questions need to be asked about supposedly non-partisan get-out-the-vote (GOTV) operations Democrats are using to ensure their low-propensity voters – and only their low-propensity voters – get to the polls. On March 7, 2021, Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting, President Joe Biden instructed every federal agency to submit a plan to leverage their agency’s personnel and assets to help turn out the vote. For example, agencies might use internal data to identify aid recipients who are not registered to vote, then use agency personnel to get them registered and ensure their ballot is cast and counted.

With Tuesday’s relatively easy passage of an Ohio constitutional amendment that effectively bars that state’s legislature from regulating abortion in the state, abortion advocates are now convinced that they not only have the public on their side but have found political gold. They now view abortion as such a winning issue that they think it can pave the way to enacting a wide range of other leftist goals. They are largely mistaken, as abortion mercifully remains a highly contentious issue in America. Still, abortion advocates will continue to prevail until pro-life leaders and politicians learn the political lessons that have arisen

The comedian said: 'The attack was only a month ago, a more savage attack than we've ever seen in reverse. There's a big difference in collateral damage and what Hamas did.' The Islamist terror group slaughtered 1,200 civilians and took more than 200 hostage in its massacre on October 7. Since then, the Palestinians claim more than 10,000 people have died in Israel's bombing campaign.

The commentariat has made much of recent surveys showing Trump ahead of Biden in swing states that probably will decide the outcome of the 2024 presidential election. A Bloomberg/MorningConsult poll released Friday, for example, shows Trump with modest leads among registered voters in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Emerson also released a survey on Friday indicating that Trump enjoys leads in the same states. The one that created the most buzz was a New York Times/Siena poll showing Trump ahead by even larger margins in Arizona (+5), Georgia (+6), Michigan (+5), Nevada (+10), and Pennsylvania (+4).

Los Angeles commuters braced for traffic chaos Monday, after a massive weekend fire forced the indefinite closure of Interstate 10, one of the city’s major traffic arteries. Mayor Karen Bass described the situation as a “crisis” for a city already notorious for its traffic woes. She urged travelers to prepare for delays and plan alternative routes while the interstate remains shut down in both directions near Alameda Street in the city’s downtown area. Ahead of the Monday morning commute, a citywide alert was sent to residents’ cell phones warning the freeway “will be closed indefinitely” and to “expect significant traffic.”

Furious migrants are refusing to stay in tent shelters set up for them in New York City - at great expense to the taxpayer - as they prefer their plush hotels in Manhattan. A group of asylum seekers were seen being bused to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn on Sunday. The site, part of a national park located in southeast of the New York City borough, is expected to hold 2,000 people. But they were immediately loaded on a bus back to Manhattan as they complained that they had jobs back in the city - and their kids had schools to attend.
