Daylight Saving Time is the greatest continuing fraud ever perpetuated on American people. And this weekend, the effects of this cruel monster will rear its ugly head again. On Sunday morning, Americans across the country will have to set their clocks back one hour, and next week, the sun will begin its ambling lurch to eventually setting at 4:30 in the afternoon.
Once again the rest of the US does the DST dance. Why? The link above destroys the standard arguments for DST.
Arizona sometimes goes its own way from the national consensus. While this does not always make sense, mostly it does. Anyway, when the feds tried to ram DST down our throats one of our politicians said “the last thing Arizona needs is another hour of daylight in the summer”. Of course this reply is nonsense as the motion of the earth with respect to the sun determine how much light vs darkness any day has. In fact, every point on the earth gets exactly 1/2 year of light and 1/2 year of dark every year.
