We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It also defeats certan la Crosse atomic clocks
From the Sunday after the time change in 2011. At midnight UTC of Sunday evening, 7pm EST local, the clock reverts to DST. As a result, if you have atomic clocks, you never know what time it is. They're exact to the second but the hour hand may be off.
LaCrosse denies it happens, probably because there are a lot of those clocks out there they'd have to make good on.
As a farmer with livestock ...NO.
Messes me up physically for weeks. Messes up the cows that are even more routine oriented.i've never met a farmer who liked it, and I believe there are real physical harms associated with it. Which is why they will never stop doing it.
Most of us with livestock still have other day to day obligations bound to the damnable clock...like another job. So the livestock are stuck on that schedule. In the veterinary world the number of cats and dogs hit during the time change period goes up dramatically. Diabetes complications, heart attacks, elderly falls, all increase in the emergency rooms.
Another issue that could easily be defeated if people stopped paying attention to the damn government.
What could they possibly do if everyone (well everyone except the bobble-heads), tomorrow; just ignored the mandated change and went to work, showed up for movies, dropped off and picked up their children. All one hour later. What could they do.
One of our state legislators is introducing a bill to put us on year-round Central Daylight Time. I'm preparing a counter proposal to go on year-round Eastern Standard Time. My wife wants us to go on the Hawaii Time Zone so we can enjoy the fresh Pacific breezes and grow pineapples.
