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.

This is a ridiculous practice and needs to be repelled. If it is really that critical why don't we combine EST and CST into one time zone and MST and PST into a second time zone? That way there is a happy medium and no more remembering to change clocks and SAD.

Daylight savings was started to give more time to farmers. We no longer need this! There is also the ill effects on health; increase in heart attacks, for one.

Why can't we make it a happy medium to suit both sides ? See if you sleep too much it's unhealthy and you get fat sitting around watching the TV or playing games ,if you live in the country and have chores to do which some people don't take into consideration ,you risk health problems because you work all day then try to bust your behind in traffic to get home to try to get your outside chores done either before it gets too dark to see or before the mosquitos take you off . So let's try for a happy medium and think of the other people's feelings too .

DST cause health issue with some people, especially older working people who are too young to retire and too old to ignore mess up bio timing. Please end it now to save health and people's well being!

You want to KEEP Daylight Savings time if you want it to stay lighter longer. It needs to stay that way 365 days a year!

For next few months my routine will consist of popping a lot of caffeine pills to stay awake during the day, my heart will be explode one of these days, and after all the caffeine it is no wonder i can't sleep at night. But who cares as long it don't effect those in favor for an extra hour of daylight. i thought the Opioids epidemic as well as our weight problems was a problem that government is concerns it's self about. This annual time change is a huge part of the issue and one huge reason why we our so unhealthy .

Although this practice made sense many decades ago, it is antiquated and disrupts a lot of people’s schedules.

Had a big conversation on my Facebook feed about this topic. Most people agreed with me that DST is plain old DUMB. Let’s get rid of it!

Pick a time - either Standard or Daylight, and keep it 365 days a year. It is the CHANGING back and forth that causes so many problems. Thank you.

Let's end this old tradition of switching clocks twice a year and make two time zones for the contiguous United States. EST and CDT the same time and MST and PDT the same time.

Stop DST in Ohio. Winter is hard enough. We need as much sun as possible. Don't be afraid to change. Let's do this!

Watch in the next couple of week car accident will spike. And no correlation will be drawn to the time change. Also ending this the time change madness will not cancel summer like so many who like longer evenings daylight. Why can't we just allow Mother Nature to naturally take us into summer time and enjoy it as is “why”? One thing that is constantly preached to us and encouraged to help better our lives is to get your "zzzz" however for the next few month (yes I said months) after each time change (specially the spring forward one) really disrupts our ability to sleep. Our coastal elite residence shouldn't have a monopoly on this time change. These coastal elite residence already live in a great location so why can’t they enjoy it without this highly disruptive time change mandate. Please end this madness that simple is not necessary at all

our family lives in 3 different time zones ... it is hard enough keeping up with time differences let alone the ridiculous time change when Michigan is 3 hours different ... keep the fall behind times and leave it! Arizona is one of the only smart states that doesn't change time! Along with part of Indiana.

Please get rid of Daylight Savings Time. There are no good reasons for it. The days get longer naturally for people to enjoy their summer. No need to change our clocks. It only puts people in a state of forced jet lag. Not good on our working people. Get rid of it. You have to think, and ask yourself, "why are we still doing this?" It affects me personally for months and my hope has been that someday, someone with authority would get rid of it once and for all. It is one thing that could be easily done...so do it. Quit messing with our time and our schedules.

I was hoping the constant time change would end by now but, there was a phrase I learned years ago that applies here, "beating a dead horse".

There's no reason why there still needs to be daylight at 10:00 PM most of the Summer! Changing the time every March causes a dramatic increase in health and safety issues. Like all other ridiculous practices, follow the money trail. Some Industries and individuals are raking it in over this nonsensical act!

Why can't they get rid of an issue that is a quick fix why isn't anyone in the government waking up and saying something? I'm sure there are politicians who don't like it either.

Virtually everyone hates DST. It doesn't save energy any more and causes accidents, strokes, heart attacks, and Heaven knows what. Why on Earth haven't we gotten rid of it long before this? President Trump could stop the downslide of his popularity rating for quite a while by abolishing it by executive order. If he did it now, on March 11 he would be the best-loved man in America!
