    Daylight Savings Time

    OK, so tonight some of us "spring forward" and readjust our clocks for DST. I do like it staying light later, and don't really care if it's darker for longer in the mornings.

    Nice article on it:
    Why Do We Have Daylight Saving Time?


    Daylight Savings in the US


    There is lots of talk and staying with DST all year around across the country-and I know some places don't change now.

    So my question is who would make that decision? A Presidential executive order? A new "law" starting as a bill in congress? Or would this be on a state level since it's not spelled out in the 10th Amendment?

    I'm the same way. I'd rather they kept Daylight Savings Time and never went to Standard Time. Either way, quit changing!!!!

    I know some states have done this, Tennessee has a bill coming up this year as well. I'd like to see it go away nationally honestly.

    I would like to not have the change also. I donít care which it stays at - just as long as we donít have the change like we do twice a year.

    Texas has talked about it the last couple of sessions, however, states that are talking about not changing, are talking about remaining on Standard Time all year, not DST. I'd rather change and have 8 months of DST and 4 months of Standard, than lose DST altogether. I keep myself and my critters on DST anyway, as well as my bedroom clock. It's always seemed easy enough when I was changing to get up 10-15 minutes earlier each week for the 3 weeks leading up to the change. But going onto Standard Time is never easy. As one that gets up at 03:00 to get things done, and my own critters taken care of, before cleaning up and going to work, and never needing an alarm clock, I am nearly always awake at 02:00 when on Standard Time.

    Personally I like DST, year around would be fine with me. Let's pray this never has to go through Congress, they can't agree long enough to make a decision on anything.

    As a side note:

    The first week of time change to DST is also the most accident prone week of the entire year according to the experts.

    There is lots of talk and staying with DST all year around across the country-and I know some places don't change now.

    So my question is who would make that decision?
    A Presidential executive order? A new "law" starting as a bill in congress? Or would this be on a state level since it's not spelled out in the 10th Amendment?
    Alexandria Ortega Cortez will make the decision. She said that she is the boss and certainly makes the most noise.

    Some of you older members may remember during one of the petroleum crisis when DST was moved ahead two hours instead of one and back only one in the fall. I can't remember how long it lasted but I like the idea. I drive to work in the dark regardless and really enjoy the extra daylight.

    One of the moderators can remove my first sarcastic remark, even though I wrote it from the bottom of my old heart.

    I get more work done in a day during DST....
    IMO, We should stay on DST and it should be nation wide.

    Making the most noise doesn't make you the boss, just the first person offered up in a mass office shooting. While the States have control of their time, it would be best to set it at a national level and then force the state to go on their own.

    It never used to bother me. The older I get I don't like the change. Just leave the dang clocks alone.
