    Re: Daylight savings time to be eliminated?

    Just curious but the NY Time piece doesn't say anything about Obama wanting to do this and I can't find anything that says he does other than the original linked article. I think they got it wrong.
    Here's what it actually says:
    Eliminating daylight time would thus accord with President-elect Barack Obama’s stated goals of conserving resources, saving money, promoting energy security and reducing climate change.
    Either way it might be something to study.

    Re: Daylight savings time to be eliminated?

    We are going to be in a socialist society soon so might as well start on the right foot by with trivial tasks as messing with day light savings time. This way everyone can stand in line for government assistance without changing the clocks and getting real confused after sitting on their butts all day demanding that they have the right to buy a house even though they really can't. Seems like more important issues are needed, however, I could be wrong here....

    I agree. We should go ahead and just eliminate clocks. Instead of working 8 hour days we'll just work as long as possible until we pass out. All in the name of making more money for the government to spend on those who don't work.

    Re: Daylight savings time to be eliminated?

    I wish it was daylight savingstime all year long. I prefer light at night than in the morning.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Like making sure the 1% of wealthiest Americans continue to receive their tax breaks for moving jobs over seas, just so their CEO can continue to receive their lavish salaries and bonuses?
    But hey, I guess business is business……. And our employers are only in business not for money, but just so you can have a job.........

    Wait, wouldn't eliminating government control of time mean LESS government??? Socialist indeed...

    Besides, I still haven't seen anything that says this is even on Obama's radar besides that one blog post.

    This is ridiculous. If they do away with DST people will just adjust their daily schedule.
