The Glorious Return Of Standard Time

Thank the heavens we are finally back on Standard Time! The horror that it DST seems to run longer and longer each year. The preciousness that is Standard Time seems shorter and shorter with each passing year. Cherish the next several months knowing that Standard Time is the time God intended. Throughout history, there has only been one legitimate time to fiddle with your clocks: that is the event chronicled in the Bible, Joshua 10:1-15, where God stopped the sun in order for the Israelites to be able to have more time to fight and destroy the Amorites. OK, if the laws of nature are suspended, I can get behind changing your clock. But if we're asked to change our clocks as a hold over from when some greedy New York bankers wanted to be able to engage in arbitrage and take advantage of changing market prices between the European markets and the US markets, I simply can't get behind that.

DST is a lie, and remember that a lie agreed upon is not the truth.

DST kills. Read through my previous entries about DST to see proof about how deadly DST is.

For those of you who enjoyed your "extra" hour last night, go ahead and start preparing for when the government takes that hour right back away from you next spring.

Remember, when I'm elected president (get ready to vote for me in 2 years), I will eliminate this vile lie once and for all. It's time we stood up for what's right.

DST: It's bad for your health, it's bad for our country.

Is DST enforced by federal law? Would the President have the authority to stop the states from practicing it?

DST isn't even observed in at least one or two states.

If the past several decades have taught us anything, it is that the reach of the federal government is much larger than it should be and that it can do more than it's supposed to be able to do. As president, I will work to eliminate every federal law establishing or endorsing DST.

quirk of time
User sonria referenced to your post from quirk of time saying: [...] computer’s clock went from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. I’m no fan of Daylight Savings Time [...]

Not sure if is DST related, but I did see that at least four accidents had occurred on my route to work. Seemed to be a higher number than usual.

It was DST related. I'm sure of it.

I don't care so much whether it's EDT or EST that we're on. I just wish they'd pick one or the other and stick to it.
