Daylight Savings Time: We Win!


Your one “free” hour of the year arrived this morning at 2:00 AM, compliments of the powers that be. So for the time being everyone will spend the next week waking up an hour earlier than normal because small children, cats and dogs can’t tell time.

As I’ve pointed out in the past, the only intelligent comment on DST I’ve ever heard was an observation generally attributed to a wise old Indian Native American: 

“Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.”


Daylight Savings Time is actually a classic model of a liberal scheme: it promises to make your life better by ignoring the law of nature and replacing it with man-made rules. In reality it simply overlays immutable fact with manmade artifice hence imposing confusion where once there was none. Sort of the same thing they’re trying to do with gender:

At least with Daylight Saving Time the rules are pretty simple: in the Fall they give us an extra hour, in the Spring, they take it back. It seems to get much more complicated with other things like income redistribution…and gender-reassignment.

But hey, you’re probably up early anyway so get out there and enjoy the sunrise.

Because no matter the time, sunset always seems to come soon enough.
