END DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Messages Sent So Far
Please stop the messing with our schedules. It's an antiquated practice that only aggravates people. As it is Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and America Samoa do not participate in this practice.

The only way we are going to stop this is going permanently on Standard Time only. Or to make it fair for both parties is to have equal 6 months the end of April to the end of October before Halloween to move it forward and fall back on October through April. We have to do this because think about it...the sun moves in different seasons...We move the clock ahead because the earth rotates with the Spring/Summer solace for more light and then the earth rotates with the Fall/Winter solace for less light. We need to get rid of the March spring ahead to the end of April and we need to move the November back to Standard Time to the last weekend of October....before Halloween...the way it use to be...that is the only way this is going to work. Vote NO for Prop 7. This is going to make Daylight Savings Time all year around????? Not permanent Standard Time. Dear Fellow Americans: Read the California General Election on all propositions and please vote on November 6th. We need your voices to be heard and your comments in this time of change. We can do this!

I am opposed of DST. It is misrepresented and a health hazard to everyone in some way. Our Earth moves naturally, it does not need a clock moving back or forward to do so. I appreciate this petition going through. Thank you for your and effort.

Daylight saving time is a complete waste. All it does is make people late or early for work! It is completely useless.

I favor year round standard time. To appease businesses, most work schedules could be moved to their real time equivalents while on DST. For example are 9 to 5 schedule could be moved to 8 to 4.

There are many health benefits to ending daylight saving time. Donald Trump hopefully has the authority to end it this year 2018 for the good of all the people in the U.S.A.

Energy saving was the rationale for Daylight Saving Time, but the promised energy saving has never materialized. In fact, the best studies prove that Americans use MORE domestic electricity when they practice daylight saving. Moreover, when people turn television off and go to park or mall in evening sunlight, they do not walk. They get in their cars and drive. Daylight “Saving” actually increases gasoline consumption. Daylight Saving Time is a fallacious substitute for genuine energy conservation policy. Spanish dictator General Franco moved Spain onto Central European Time in 1942 to follow Nazi Germany. Let us not allow madness to dictate our measurement of time. More than 80 percent of respondents to the largest online survey in European Union history are in favor of abolishing changing the clocks in summer and winter. Living beings seek pleasure and instinctively avoid pain. Getting out of bed an hour early is pain! It disrupts your biorhythm, causing difficulty sleeping, irritation and lack of concentration. I know that. You know that. Contact your government representative and make your case, send your message: Stop the Daylight Saving Madness!

If Daylight Saving Time ends, people's sleep would not be disrupted. Their bodies would also be healthier, and it would be one less reason to have people at risk for a heart attack.

End Daylight Saving Time. People have to drive to work or home in the dark, which is very dangerous to do. People can get into accidents on the road and get seriously hurt that way!!

Split the difference.. Move time back 30 minutes this fall. Instead of an hour. Then never change clocks again. That it!

I vote NO on AB-807 because the bill is intended to keep CA on Daylight Savings Time all year long. Have you heard of circadian rhythm? A part of your hypothalamus (a portion of your brain) controls your circadian rhythm. That said, outside factors like lightness and darkness can also impact it. When it’s dark at night, your eyes send a signal to the hypothalamus that it’s time to feel tired. WE DO NOT GET TO EXPERIENCE THIS NATURAL CYCLE OF SHUTTING DOWN, while we observe Daylight Savings time. There is so much light so late at night and this creates a disruption in our sleep cycle which has a detrimental effect on our health and the ability to perform basic day to day functions. Your brain, in turn, sends a signal to your body to release melatonin, which makes your body tired. That’s why your circadian rhythm tends to coincide with the cycle of daytime and nighttime When things get in the way, like daylight savings time, you can disrupt your circadian rhythm, which makes you feel out of sorts and can make it harder to pay attention . VOTE NO ON AB-807, and propose a bill that keeps CA on STANDARD TIME.

We have an excess of daylight when we observe Daylight Savings time, well into the late evening when most people are getting ready for bed and have such a brief time of actual darkness. Many people experience zero time in darkness, this is unnatural. Light exposure at night stimulates alertness—and that can pose a serious problem for healthy, abundant, refreshing sleep. Light exposure during the evening can make it harder to fall asleep. Insufficient darkness throughout the night can lead to frequent and prolonged awakenings. The body needs time to prepare for sleep, this is not possible when Daylight Savings Time is in place. A sleep routine that includes a gradually darkening environment is essential. However, while on DST we have zero transitioning periods. My entire family spends every waking moment in sunlight; this is so unnatural and has a negative effect on our health and mood. I vote NO on AB-807 because the bill is intended to keep CA on Daylight Savings Time all year long.

I am still having a hard time adjusting to getting up an hour earlier. My system automatically wakes up in Standard time. That extra hour early seems to just make me tired all day. And it isn't just in my head.

This nonsense of daylight saving time must stop!!! People walking around like half brain dead zombies, all cranky, and out of sorts is ridiculous!!! Standard time must be adopted nationwide!! I am in California, and believe we should have standard time. Standard time also means more time to do things, and get things done!! And the plus side is we don't walk around feeling drained and brain dead, and causing traffic accidents!! We can also help push this Standard time movement if we ask the various sleep foundations to lobby in Capitol Hill for this cause! Here is a list of the various sleep foundations we can contact to ask them to lobby against daylight saving and for standard time: National Sleep Foundation American Academy of Sleep Medicine American Board of Sleep Medicine AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
