Can We Finally Do Away With This Time-Change Shit?

Look, I understand the original rationale for Daylight Savings Time (or, as it was often called, War Time). Having it daylight longer when most people were out and about saved some energy.

But the days when the predominant kilowatt-suckers were incandescent lightbulbs are long gone. Oodles of people have energy-saving lights. And between refrigerators, air conditioning, washing machines, dryers, and electronics out the wazoo, all of which didn't exist when the Kaiser's legions were tromping around France, changing form Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time and back again probably saves very little energy.

Plus, it's hard on a hell of a lot of people to keep flipping the goddamned clocks. Whether it's permanent DST or Standard Time or 30 minutes inbetween, let's fucking pick one and stick with it.

Enough of this nonsense.

Arizona - no daylight savings time here. We have lots of sunshine and don't need to save any.
