    To quote the "Chief": "leave it to the government to think that cutting a foot off the top of a blanket and adding it to the bottom of the blanket, will make the blanket longer!"

    enough said.

    after tax normally the blanket is shorter. So, the days are longer using their method since no tax is collected. (yet)

    However, if you take a foot off a part of the blanket that doesn't get used and sew it on where it will, that effectively makes the blanket bigger.


    You know the problem with bad cops? They make the other 5% look bad.

    There are exactly the same number of hours of daylight. Instead of changing the clocks, change the hours your work place operates. I can't even begin to imagine what this costs us twice a year to play this silly game. Use standard time, all the time. The sun is never wrong.

    Nope, you have it backwards. As it stands now, the Federal Government MANDATES, with a few exceptions, the switching of time twice a year. Use Standard time, all the time. Then, if a company CHOOSES to change their work hours, they can. There is no valid reason to take on the expense of these changes twice a year. Talk about the government messing with private industry.
