CLOCK falls BACK , NOVEMEBER 2nd !,one week LATE !
« on: October 27, 2008, 11:54:40 AM »
Well they found another way to get VOTERS to stay away !

They could have WAITED ANOTHER WEEK OR MORE  ::)

 I see NO reason to change the DAY the times changes back .

OTHER THAN IT WILL BE DARK FOR MANY AFTER WORK ON VOTING DAY !

I know many oldsters that will go straight home ,because they dislike being out after dark !

just another way to keep voters at bay !

                                               Just saying ,

                                                                          Karl


p.s : I MAY have Miss heard ,but I swear the local news said LATE  :)

You didn't hear that come out of Sarah Palin's mouth, did you? :D

Because actually it's a week late, not a week early. It used to be the Sunday before Hallowe'en; now it's the Sunday after.  I remember this because as a child, I knew that it would suddenly start getting dark early right before Hallowe'en, so we'd get that extra dark time to trick-or-treat.  As an adult, it meant that if we went out to a bar Saturday before Hallowe'en, we'd get to drink an extra hour because at 2am the clock would roll back to 1am.

then what do you think the reasoning was for changing the day it started this year?

This change was implemented in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, so I don't think the reasoning had anything to do with voting - especially since this change is later than normal. We would have been voting in the dark (if you go late in the day) regardless of whether we had the extra month of DST this year or not.

We in Arizona think that the manipulation of the clock is somehow an attempt to become a bit Godlike, therefore, as the rest of you manipulate the clock, we will simply switch from Pacific to Mountain time.  Our clocks never change, which somehow seems a bit more natural.
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

My newphew was crying because he was hungry and his mother would not feed him yesterday till one hour later to adjust his lunch schedule. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to argue with her...but she is not very reasonable for a 5 month old baby.

Actually the extra hour has nothing on November 2 has nothing to do with Daylight Savings Time.  It was decided that since it'll be my birthday, it gives everyone an extra hour to do last minute gift shopping.

Enjoyed that extra hour tonight. Almost as though it never happened.  :P  But I will realise the change, when I drive home from work Monday morning at 7:00AM. Sun should be blinding me on my way home.   8)

I would suggest during the summers here in Arizona we set the clocks ahead two or three hours.  So when the stores and businesses open it would still be relatively cool out...and then sun would set "earlier" in the day.  That way one can get out and about comfortably and avoid the 300-400 degree heat  ;D
