    Vote on what is given in the poll or vote 'other' and tell us what you think of Daylight Saving Time.

    Do I really need to explain this to you?

    Re: How do you feel about Daylight Saving Time?

    I enjoy the sun not coming up at 5:00 AM in the summer. Other than that I don't feel too strongly about it one way or the other.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I voted "Other" because I'm ambivalent. Kinda like taking a dump every morning. It's just something you do. I don't feel emotionally about it either way. I'm a man, not a little girl... I have the emotional response of a tree as it is - somehow I just can't conjure up anything about DST.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think DST is unnecessary in an era where we have easy access to electricity. I hate that the sun can be up until 8:45 pm. Especially in this state where it is frackin hot during summer.

    You sound a bit like Dr Laura. Did you ever listen to her? She used to regularly rake callers over the coals for using the word 'feel' in its dictionary accepted meaning for 'think'.

    Kind of a whiny, female thing to do, I think... I thought she was a regular shrew, if you ask me.

    You should move up north where the sun stays up until 10 PM

    Re: How do you feel about Daylight Saving Time?

    While it's probably pointless today, I have no problem with it, it doesn't harm me or pick my pocket, so I entirely ignore it. All of my clocks automatically set themselves forward or back anyhow, I usually don't even notice.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Blog me! YouTube me! VidMe me!

    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.

    Only thing I know about Dr. Laura was she is or was some conservative radio host who gave out advice and had a spat with Howard Stern like 10 years ago. I only heard Howard's side of the story. Shrew? I prefer "Stoic".

    That was one smooth talking snakeoil salesman who sold them on that one.
