Day Light Savings Time - What's the story going to be?

Post by Flame Red » Thu Oct 04, 2018 9:05 am

With all the discusting replusive crap the Libiturds are doing, I figured I need a distraction.

I seem to remember Florida passing laws that would stop the crazy DST Image.

So are we going to have to turn back the clocks this fall? Or was it just another RINO feel good effort that amounted to the usual nothingness?

BTW - I HATE changing the clocks. Pure idiocy.
Ah that's one thing about our Flame, doesn't play any favorites! Flame hates everybody!

Hate DST. It’s nothing more than behavior conditioning by Uncle Sam.

One thing for sure, whether they keep DST in use or just use reg time. You'll have to set your clocks back this fall since you set them ahead this spring for DST. Unless they leave it turned ahead all the time from now on.

^^^This. Nothing will change without an act of Congress, which is very unlikely.

Nothing is changing for the reasons discussed at the time. It was jerking off by FL politicians.

DST is an anachronism from the days before fluorescent (and LED) lighting when factories were lighted by walls of windows and dependent on sunlight. You can still see some of their crumbling ruins in the Northeast and Midwest. Other outdoor activity like farming simply used available light as a guide and ignored the clocks, so farmers were mostly opposed to DST because of its effect on their non-farm schedules.

DST has been long proven to save zero electricity and the switch causes absenteeism and accidents for a net economic minus.

It needs to go.

The logistical problems of this are not in using either DST (proposed) or EST, but in putting the entire state in the same time zone.

Can you imagine? We'd have to bring everything west of the Apalachicola River ahead 25 years...

Most of the US state of Arizona does not use Daylight Saving Time (DST). The exception is the Navajo Nation.

And just like the last time we discussed this, many people miss how absolutely ludicrous the "Sunshine Protection Act" is. It would NOT do away with DST in Florida - it would put us on DST year-round.

HB1013, also known as the “Sunshine Protection Act,” states that, if Congress amends U.S. code to permit states to observe year-round daylight saving time, it is the intent of the Florida Legislature that “daylight saving time shall be the year-round standard time of the entire state.”

We have been through all this ad nauseam. The proposal was to put FL on DST year round. The effect of that would put Florida on Atlantic Standard Time in the fall and winter, while the rest of the Eastern US would be on Eastern Standard Time. Big Business does not want to deal with a 5th continental US time zone. It ain't happening. Stop already.

Next.
