Getting up one hour early doesn't work, it doesn't help the farmer, he still has the same amount of daylight. Today where I live, sunrise was 7:55, at 7AM it was pitch ass black dark. The sun will set today at 6.:32. That's 10 hours and 37 minutes of daylight, where's the increase? Most outside jobs begin around 8 AM, that being the case the workers lost about 15-30 minutes of "productive" time waiting until it got light enough to see anything. I vote for Standard Time throughout the year. DST was invented way back in the latter part of the 18th Century and made popular during WW II by a lie of many lies told by the FDR Administration.I would think farmers are the ones who need it the least. Get up with the sun work until dark. Time is just a number on the clock.
I know I’m sick of changing time twice a year. but I dont want year round daylight savings time. which seems to be the direction we are headed.
