    Daylight Savings Time actually increases electrical demand, as air conditioning has eclipsed lighting as the main use of electricity.

    Say no to permanent daylight savings time! That practice is ancient and no longer necessary! Didn't the U.S. had a year-round of daylight savings time! We've been there, done that! It's over! We must move on with this switch!

    I have a toddler and an infant and, let me tell you, there's no rest for the weary when Daylight Craving Time comes to a screeching start. My kids can't read clocks. My toddler has woken up at the same time every day since she was two months old and has gone to bed at the same time too. To that end, during the long, dark winter months, she goes to bed extremely early and wakes up extremely early, thus destroying any chance mommy and I have to sleep in. At night, after a full day of dealing with her hijinx, my wife is ready to simply collapse as soon as the sun goes down, leaving no time for us to do something together. Even dinners hardly happen since, by the time those of us who can read a clock are ready to eat, our little girl's acting like Godzilla with our house the proverbial Tokyo. Then, the summer months come around and, due to my little one not adjusting to the new schedule, she demands to have every aspect of her daily ritual performed an hour later. It's frustrating to go from putting her to bed too early to eating dinner too late, but that's what you get when you have a bundle of joy. As for the newborn, his feeding schedule isn't going to change on Sunday when the clocks do. He's got no idea what a clock is, much less how it has a direct impact on daddy and mommy's life. In the end, my work hours get skewed, my family interaction gets thrown off and, just when we think we have gotten into good habits, we learn that DST starts on Sunday. With all of the misnomers, misinformation and misremembering about why we mess with a dimension outside of our physical understanding, we forget that time is only measured unto man, but babies, animals and nature itself aren't affected by red tape.

    Let's stop messing with the clocks. I don't care which time we choose. Just stop. It wrecks our health. I see that there are thousands of people who agree with me. Why won't our elected officials take action? We don't deserve to suffer twice a year with this.

    Why "spring forward" when it is still winter? Almost half the country is covered in snow. At least move it to April again when the days are longer and morning travel isn't so treacherous in the cold dark.

    l think that we should get rid of Daylight Saving Time, because it doesn`t accomplish anything. You have darker morning hours as well when the clocks go forward one hour, it effects people in the morning including myself. when l got to work. and having daylight saving time. Also if having Daylight Saving time year round aspecially in the winter would be a very dark morning hours. l think that Standard Time is the best, give or take. Also Standard Time is the correct time, NOT Daylight Saving time. President Lynden Bains Johnson signed the uniformed timed act in 1966 having to change the clocks back and forth, the flip flopping of time twice a year. It`s time to bring back Standard Time all year round<NOT Daylight Saving Time, even if daylight saving time were year round, Standard Time Only!

    Don't just end it, end it on Standard time. Stop it before it even starts this year and just let nature do its thing. The loss of $430Million/year to this outdated health hazard should be enough.
