    Re: Who likes Daylight Saving Time?

    DLST is the most incredibly dumb policy there is. Daylight (the amount of time it lasts in a 24 hour period depending on the season and your position on the globe in relation to the sun) is not determined by moving the hands on a clock.

    The older I get, the more I hate it. Leave the clock alone.

    Should daylight saving time be eliminated?

    Advocates for eliminating daylight saving time, or making it permanent, say that the supposed advantages of energy savings and benefits to farmers are either unproven or outweighed by the drawbacks of switching clocks twice a year.

    Others argue that the current system is best, since it provides more light during waking hours in the summer without forcing workers and schoolchildren to begin their days in darkness when daylight hours shrink in the winter.

    One of the things holding back changes is concern over confusion that would arise if some states observed daylight saving time while others didn't.

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has proposed bills in the Senate that would make daylight saving time permanent nationwide each of the past two years. Despite increasing support from representatives in other states and even the president, the bills have not moved forward. Rubio said heâ€Who likes Daylight Saving Time?ll continue to push for the change, saying he hopes this Sunday 'will be the last time that we have to do this ridiculous changing of the clocks back and forth.'

    Interesting, people are whining about the burden of resetting their clocks. We truly are a country of pussies.

    I like daylight savings time so much I wish they'd keep it year round.

    Ironically...there really are people who believe changing their clock is what makes the day longer.

    Let's just get rid of timekeeping why we're at it. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, and centuries.
