    If government can control time, then there is nothing they can't do.

    True. And they can print money also.

    We should spring forward and never fall back. Problem solved.

    I say let's compromise: Set the clocks ahead a half hour instead of an hour, then leave them there.

    At my age, losing an hour's sleep is no big deal. Daylight savings time...I can take it or leave it.

    There is even a movement to try and put an end to this. Time never changed so who are we to think we can change time. Leave time alone.....in the end time always wins.

    So what say ye.....Should we Get Rid of this outdated Daylight Saving Time Program?



    Hell yes, get rid of it. It's one of those government doodoo's that they forgot to clean up.

    Keep it.

    I start waking up v early in the morning as soon as the lighter days come in. This is dictated by nature, not the clock. In winter, I don't want to go anywhere or do anything, as it should be in winter, it makes no sense to go out anyway.

    If you're doing away with the time change, it's been done before here and children going to school were run over in the dark. You'll have to do something about the time school starts.

    And if you do that, you'll have to do something about the time the parents of the children start work.

    And if you do that....
