DST Kills

Don't forget that the evil that is DST visits us tonight. If you're not paying attention, you'll be an hour late for church.

As you know, I am a vocal advocate for eliminating Daylight Saving Time. Studies show that it wastes energy and costs more and is responsible for increased death and injury rates. Obviously, this is a horrible practice that should be abolished -- we are slaves to DST.

I'll be running for President again next time, on the anti-DST platform. Join me.

I will vote for you if you have Ron Paul as your running mate. With your powers combined, government might actually start making sense. My BRANE hurtz just thinking about it.

The glory of a write-in campaign is that anyone can be my running mate! Feel free to vote for me for President and Dr. Paul for Vice President.

This is the sole reason that you aren't president. When you wake up and realize that DST is a gift from God, you might get more than one vote on election day.

God hung the lights in the sky. It took quite human twentieth-century government to start lying to each other about where they are at noon.

peace,

If not abolished, at the very least it should be moved back to where it was. It was invented to conserve daylight (in the early morning), not energy, hence the name. At the moment, there's no daylight to conserve.

The daylight is not conserved. The same amount exists in a DST world as in a no-DST world. We just lie about what time it is in a DST world.

If you want to "conserve" daylight, change your sleep/work habits to match nature instead of lying about what time it is.

Please do, with or without credit. Spread the anti-DST message however you can.
