A Lie Agreed Upon Is Not The Truth

Don't forget (for my U.S. friends) -- tonight we turn back the clocks on the lie we have been perpetuating for the past several months and move our clocks back to Standard Time.

When I am President, I promise to end this nonsense once and for all.

DST kills.

Hear hear!

At least the extra hour of sleep will be a small consolation for the temporal bondage we have been made to endure.

And let it be the last time we have to settle for a consolation!

Then I'm your man. This DST nonsense is an attempt to force us to stick to a defined "time" for activities, to the extent that we will lie to ourselves about what time it is in order for our "time" to seem reasonable.

Instead, I say we modify the times of our activities with the seasons. There is no reason a business must insist on keeping the same hours year round. If you want to open an hour after sunrise and close a few hours before sunset, then adjust your operating hours as the seasons change instead of adjusting your clock simply so the labels you put on your time can remain the same!

Damn straight.

Also, get hopping on the histamines. I got it bad this year, for some reason. Must be global warming. Also, I think the attacks of acute appendicitis, lyme disease, and a bat on my family were due to global warming. Which is ultimately the fault of Bush.

So, I know that if you were president, all this would be cleared up.

I shall enjoy this extra hour of sleep. However, my inmates will be mad though because it means the yard will no longer open after dinner chow call.

I just moved to the only place left in the US that really rebels against DST. I can't wait until spring, I was having fun scheduling meetings for MST and correcting people when they tried to correct me.

You have a place in the new regime if you want it.

Shall I call you tomorrow morning at o'dark-hundred when we validate that our servers, once again, did what they're programmed to do? I'm sure you'll appreciate the call and the peace of mind.

No. You should elect me President so that you will never have to do that validation again.
