Don't forget to turn them clocks back tonight. For those duty peeps on third shift and get caught up in that extra hour, I feel your pain.

We've been trying to get DST abolished here in New Mexico. The left-wingers have managed to defeat it. 

 

As a side light.... I have never understood how or why DST saved money. The original idea was to help farmers with the war effort. I guess tractors didn't have head lights back then? Maybe it is a leftist thing?

As I understand it here in Eastern Ohio,, it was so the automotive industry & other large factories didnt need to burn as much coal for factory lighting.

 

Either way a farce is a farce. Winter months allow 8- 9hrs of daylight regardless of when the gubment wants it to be 7am.

 

Only the gubment can change the clocks and believe they "gained" an hour of daylight.

First off, DST had NOTHING to do with saving daylight in the winter.  DST is over the summer.   So how was it supposed to help anything???

I don't know the answer to that, but i guess I'll play the odd man out as I always liked the summer daylight. I vote they move the clocks ahead two hours   :lol:
