Seems like more and more complaints roll in every year about Daylight Savings Time. What’s the point? What’s the purpose? If it began during World War I. why do we still have it? All good questions…

The good thing about it? We get an extra hour in the fall. Whoopee.
One of the bad things? It consistently screws up America’s time with the times overseas.

Time: What are we saving?
Who is trying to save it?
Why do we fall back and spring forward?
What’s the point of having to switch our clocks in November only to change them back only FOUR MONTHS LATER?

These and other factions about DST have been puzzling Americans for years, and even MORE so now. More and more of our population is getting fed up with the whole idea of DST and they can’t get a straight answer why we still have it. Sure, there are reasons that are given but the keyword here is REASONS…PLURAL. We hear a handful of “reasons” why we have it but no definitive ones…more and more, these are sounding like excuses rather than legitimate reasons…or easy answers just to make us stop asking. I don't think DST is fruitful at all. GET RID OF IT.
