WTF? Why mess with the clocks even more????
Lawmakers move to extend daylight-saving time House and Senate negotiators on an energy bill agreed to begin daylight-saving time three weeks earlier, on the second Sunday in March, and extend it by one week to the first Sunday in November. Friggin idots! This pisses me off beyond belief! It's bad enough that daylight savings time exists in the first place, but now they are going to screw it up even more. I liked my idea... rather than springing forward and falling back, we split the difference and set the clocks on one time and leave them there! Pick a time... I don't care, but quit screwing with the damn clock! Here's another little tidbit from the story.... Upton noted that the extension means daylight-saving time will continue through Halloween, adding to safety. "Kids across the nation will soon rejoice," said Upton, because they'll have another hour of daylight trick-or-treating. Hey idiot... actually, parents across America will soon be royaly pissed. What kid wants to go trick-or-treating in the day light? This will just keep kids out later due to the late start they will be getting. Some days I wish they would just shut Washington down and do nothing at all. We'd all be better off if they did.
