    Should We Get Rid of Daylight Saving Time?

    It's here again.....Daylight Saving Time. Lose an hour of sleep. Do we need this programming anymore? Hasn't the Internet made up for that business sector?

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    So what say ye.....Should we Get Rid of this outdated Daylight Saving Time Program?

    It is outdated. The problem would be deciding which time to use. I'm more of a morning person so I would prefer it get light earlier some would want it to stay light later in the evening.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Keep daylight savings time year round.

    Yep, we should dump the seasonal time changes. We should also adopt a 28 day, 13 month, calendar and have one leap day each year with two leap days every four years.

    Why would you stop messing with one thing only to mess with another? The 12 month scenario seems to be working out just fine.

    Move the clocks forward by one hour tonight - then never go back. Just leave it there.

    Yes, most of us do not farm.

    Mornin' Penn. Here they talk about how we lose so much time sitting in traffic and that a good majority of people don't sleep good as it is.....yet the Government has known all along they could give us back the hours they have stolen from us ever since they created this damn program.

    I work nights.....but I would prefer days. Even though I am up for the Sunrise.

    Uhm that's when we do have sun .....Just sayin!
