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.
- And another. This is "truthy," as they would say on The View:
"If we change our times with the sole intent of increasing the amount of daylight we receive, that’s an extra hour of sunshine that will warm the planet. That’s one extra hour per day of extra heat warming our already unstable planet. We need to repeal Daylight Savings Time as a primary measure to decrease the rate of climate change. Less hours of sunshine equals less heat hitting Earth’s surface. We’re running out of time!"
If you believe Snopes, they say the DST quote is false:
This is not a genuine news article, nor is this a real quote from the New York congresswoman. NPC Daily is a satirical website that does not publish factual content.
A brief bit of text below this article states: “Yes, this entire website is satire and not meant to be taken seriously.” The NPC Daily also elaborates on the nature of its content in its “About” page:
NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm. NPC Daily pokes fun of modern journalism and liberalism. If you believe one of our articles is real, it’s because the content is not too far adrift from what is published by mainstream news outlets. But, alas, our content is totally fictitious and is created to elicit laughs and bemusement.
My father used to joke that he wanted "Vacation Savings Time"--moving the calendar back a month at the end of June, then advancing it to September 30 at the end of August. We could do the same thing with the end of the world that threatens us in 12 years.
