The only thing we're really changing are the clocks.
I'm sorry everyone but, Daylight Savings Time is a myth. Doesn't save anything, doesn't make more or less daylight. Please stop telling me what time it is.
I guess one has to be old enough to recall that DST was so that people could work in their Victory Gardens during The War. Come on!
Absolutely hate it. Leave Standard time alone. not necessary. One of the worst ideas ever.
I like the idea of a daylight savings time. I just don't see why it can't be implemented all year round. It would certainly help the economy at a time when we need all the help we can get.
Twice a year, the government messes up my body clock with this practice. STOP IT!
Just from what I have read,looks like all of you work inside. Here in West Texas time is money and waiting on the sun to come up so we can start working just ain't going to get it!As far as a body clock ya'll need to be like the U.S. Marines learn to adapt and over come the problem!I love it when the time changes Thats when I put new batteries in my clocks and smoke alarms.
I do not mind either one just leave it one way or the other.
We have put up with this silly idea long enough and it is long past time to end it.
If you want to get up earlier in the summer months,thendo so, but leave the clocks alone! Changing them makes absolutely NO SENSE!
I second that!
I love it and for all you sissy lala's get a life and get over it, because there is more time than life. Just be grateful that you are here!
Absolutely stinks. Ben Franklin was a smart guy with one really bad idea. I wish we could somehow change this idiotic ritual.
Think of the poor kids who have to get up in the dark and go to school in the dark! Get real !!
Move the time ahead 1/2 hour in the Spring and leave it permanently. No more adjusting to the new time twice a year.
I totally agree Susiereader... I've been saying that for years! DST does not really save any time at all!
In modern society, there is no need for daylight savings time. Businesses are staying open longer, many 24 hours. Traffic is just as busy in the dark as it is in the light. The only thing daylight savings time does, is to mess up the body's natural sleep rhythm.
Couldn't agree more, GregC29.
I agree with GregC29. All it does is mess up the body's natural sleep rhythm.
i totally agree that it messes up natural sleep rhythm!
Let's stop with the time switching. The spring change is the worst.
Its outlived its uesfulness. Get rid of it.
Many entities (hospitals, police/firemen, some grocery & drug stores are 24/7 Those companies and schools which benefit from DST can simply switch to "summer" hours as needed. Then it doesn't have to affect EVERYONE.
Leave the stadard time. We are an 24 hours society. We no longer need the daylight saving time. Farmers has all the modern machinary now, the tractors and combines has all the bells and whistles on them now. Headlights to see in the dark, heat for the cold and air for the heat. Lots of stores stay open 24/7 now, so what is the reason for leaping ahead is the spring and summer. Stores doesn't change their time except for the holiday to make more money for the big wheels.

Never have liked it because it disrupts "normal" schedules--especially when one has children and/or pets. Choose one, already--daylight or standard.
I agree, just pick one and leave it there
Choose D.S.T. or S.T. and leave it there FOREVER.
