DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME?
So-called Daylight Saving Time doesn't save *anything*. On the contrary, it costs the USA hundreds of millions, if not billions, in lost productivity and wasted hours as people fiddle with clocks, miss appointments, correct scheduling errors, and otherwise observe this completely fatuous ritual.
It most certainly does not save electricity. This isn't the 1940s: and homes and businesses keep their lights and air conditioning on throughout the day, regardless of the time displayed on the clock.
It does not save lives: studies have shown that it actually costs lives as people's sleep schedules are disrupted for days, causing an increase in traffic accidents.
It doesn't help farmers: farmers rise with the sun no matter what the clock says. Overall, Farmers do not approve of DST. It is incorrect to think they are the reason for DST. On the contrary, DST totally disrupts a farmer's schedule.
It is time to put an end to this ridiculous ritual. Write, call, AND email your federal and state representatives (DST is a FEDERAL SCHEME which states can opt out of), and tell them to STOP PLAYING WITH THE COUNTRY'S CLOCKS!
