I think there are only 2 places that don't change time, Arizona and Indiana. I agree, we should just leave it on summer time.

Indiana changed their law. They follow it.

Arizona and Hawaii don't follow it.

I think its pretty dumb. Does anyone know if it ever saves energy like Congress thinks it does?

Here's a good link for you if you are interested: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/c.html

Supposedly it does.

I like to think everything is a conspiracy. "It's a conspiracy man!"

The idea originates from WWI, and it's not a farming thing.

Originally I think it was meant for farmers to have more daylight for field work. It saves nothing but 'conservation' is a good 'feel good' warm fuzzy feeling to justify perpetuating a dumb idea. Besides, there's money to be made every time they 'tweak' it and computers need reprogramming/updating. KaChing!

EDIT: Ok, maybe not farmers (after reading above link), but it's still a BS thing that generates a lot 'problems' that needs to have money spent on them to 'fix'. In other parts of the world, it's known as racketeering.

I regress, maybe the idea originates from farmers. But it wasn't put into practice by governments until WWI.

Yep, it was originated for the early start farmers prefer.

...this is the reason I am ok with it. Try working in construction, starting in pitch dark. It sucks:)

I cant find the quote from the tool of a congressman who backed the proposal.
We had it posted up from his wikipedia page...
Something like... He said he "did it cuz it puts a smile on his face"
bah...
after everything it put all the poor IT guys through.. I don't think he was as loved as he may have thought he'd be.
