And changing a man made number does not give you more daylight
It does wreak havoc on people's sleep and cause a lot more problems than it solves considering the time the sun goes down does not effect the modern world at all
So you're telling me that changing a man made number can kill you and stress you out and make you late because you didn't change your own man made number, but it can't give you more daylight?
That's funny, because before the change, it would be dark at 5:30, but now it's not dark until 6:30.

Trump can suggest it, but it is up to the states to change it. I can almost guarantee that since Trump suggested it, it will never happen in Democratic states because Democrats do exactly opposite what Trump thinks is a good idea, lets watch and see if I am right. We now have a Democratic governor and I would bet since Trump thinks it is a good idea, along with the vast majority of the people in the state, she will veto it.

the only time i cared about this was when i had to manually change the time on all the clocks in my house, but that hasn't been necessary for what, 20 years?
so doesn't this feel like an empty statement, or even worse, some kind of diversion?

I hate getting up in the dark!!!!
And permanent daylight savings time would make it DARK to about 9AM where we live.....so NO!
I would be in favor of permanent no savings time....IOW....the time we have from October to March....ALL year round.
BTW.....I think this time adjustment is some kind of BS put out by someone with an agenda.
Takes about a day to adjust.....
