    I hate spring forward... I just wish CO would just pick one and stick with it. This crap messes with our dogs, our kids, me... I hate the time changes.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    why do you hate spring forward? I am amazed at all the dummies that hate EXTRA DAYLIGHT AT NIGHT

    the morning is completely useless... everyone is in work and school. Having an extra hour at night is where it is needed. The solution isn't to get rid of DST, but to never turn it back.

    The reasons for it are long past and they should just do away with it.
    SEDITION: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.

    That's fine with me. Just pick one. I hate the stupid idea that we need to change the clocks so that farmers can have more daylight at either end of the frickin' day. Set your alarm early if you want more awake time in the morning and leave my frickin' clock alone. I don't care which they pick, none of it matters to me other than f***ing with my family's schedule for a useless antiquated idea.

    You might be onto something, but hell, forget Friday at 4PM...let's spring forward on a Friday at NOON!
    When Trump entered the White House, he had a majority in the Senate and House.

    NOW thanks to Trump, the Democrats have a majority in the Senate and House and Trump will be remembered as the President who tried to overthrow the will of the American people.

    Trump has been the worst thing that's happened to the Republican Party and the best thing that's happened to the Democratic Party.

    Thanks Fat Donald.

    I'm sorry. I like daylight savings time. Keep it all year round as far as I'm concerned. After I retire, who cares.

    And there is no "extra daylight" at any time. If you want more daylight at the point before you go to bed just get up earlier. Seriously. You get that I hate "more daylight" out of I hate the clock changes?

    There is exactly the same amount of daylight every day regardless of the accuracy of my clock. It is, and will be, regardless of what my clock says. That everybody has to get up earlier to make your "extra hour" during the "night" happen is just stupid.

    BTW - I also hate "fall back"... I just hate this nonsense in its entirety.
