Down With DST

You know I hate DST. When elected President, the first thing I do will be to eliminate it. In the mean time, here's the min-rant I wrote last year:
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.
maeglin73 recently christened this lie "ACT: Arbitrarily Changed Time." That's exactly what it is. It's arbitrary. It's a joke. It's a lie. It causes more problems than it solves.

Remember: a lie agreed upon is not the truth. DST is a lie.

Well, technically what I was referring to was the change made in 2007 by Bush and his cronies. It was done under the assumption that DST was invented to save energy (lie #1) and then stuck because they thought it actually worked (lie #2). DST was invented to move daylight hours later in the day during the summer months, purely for recreational purposes, but the days aren't quite long enough yet this early in the year... hence, ACT.

On the other hand, the "day" that you're trying to fill with daylight is technically an arbitrary range of hours. Now we're back to that word... "arbitrary".
