    How do you feel about Daylight Saving Time?

    It's that time again, to 'jump forward' and lose an hour of sleep. How do you feel about the time change?

    I don't feel any particular way about it. Should I?
    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.

    Well, it was Ben Franklin's idea, and most of his ideas were pretty good.

    Daylight Saving (no "S") Time is ridiculous. We're all just lying to ourselves about what time it really is. And Ben Franklin proposed it as a joke -- it was actually a busybody named George Vernon Hudson who invented it because he thought it was horrible that people were actually sleeping instead of doing something productive.

    All men have "feelings" and opinions, even about things that a majority feel are a good idea...
    I guess that the TeaBag party is against DST as well..
    Every time DST rolls around, havoc occurs.
    I'll reset the 10 to 20 timepieces that we have and say nothing.
    Then the wife will do the same, and say nothing.. Several days later, I'll forget and reset the clocks a third time..
    Hilarious, I'm retired, so it matters little.
    The solution, other than proper communication, is to have one of the "atomic" clocks that does things automatically, and to pitch all of the old junk!

    The word 'feel' has several meanings, including being a synonym for the word 'think'.

    4 a : to be aware of by instinct or inference b : believe, think <say what you really feel>
    2 a : to be conscious of an inward impression, state of mind, or physical condition b : to have a marked sentiment or opinion <feels strongly about it>

    You're the epitome of the "Assume" cliche - write your congressman about a new entitlement for tax payer provided clock changing services... anything to create more government is a good thing. Maybe while they're there 2x a year, you can request they feed you, then wipe & flush.

    Since you're retired, I'd think resetting the clocks provides you a little something to do around the house with the other puttering two times a year. A little exercise never hurt anyone and a little purpose in life is a good thing. Just stop complaining and get the step stool out and change the clocks...

    Tell me which one you meant to convey in your question.
