  1. Living in Arizona since 2005, it’s great not having to mess with the clock twice a year, the days get longer in the summer and shorter in the winter naturally, Their is no need to make it even darker earlier in the afternoon, Always 3 hours from Hawaii time😍

  2. We should remain on stand time, year around. Kids shouldn’t have to go to school in the dark. This morning, in Dallas, sunrise wasn’t till 0741. On Monday, when the school busses roll kids will be standing on the corners in the dark. Not a safe situation at all.

    1. No! Keep it under DST…there are some of us that prefer the extra hour of daylight over it getting dark early!

  3. Day light savings time allows me to do things while there is still sunlight. I get off at 6:30 and feel like a vampire. I enjoy yhe extra daylight in the he evening. I can go to the park, and other thingd. It is nice to leave work with the sun still up.

  4. I live in CA…I hate Daylight savings time…there is absolutely no need for it. All you are doing is artificially adjusting ” normal” time.

  5. I thank it was a good idea for Hawaii to go all Daylight Savings Time and keep the clocks locked in because they have more sunlight earlier and later than the rest of the rest of the USA. I just hope the rest of the USA catches up. Thanks.

  6. I do not like daylight saving time and I worked for farmers yes it’s nice to have the extra hour in the evening but you are not saving any energy in the morning by turning all the lights on and it is not safe for children going to school I the dark

  7. First of all, it has to be made clear that only the Northern part of the U.S. benefits from DST, and they Do benefit. Having it permanent one way or another would never make sense for these reasons:

    1. Since sunrise changes Markedly in Northern states and they don’t want their kids walking to the school bus stop in the dark, “falling backward” one hour alleviates this issue.

    2. They whole “permanent” idea never made sense because it will never compensate for the fact that in the winter Northern states’ days are much shorter. The 70’s attempt was to try to prevent massive use of lighting in businesses at the end of the business day, but it had even More kids going to school in the dark!

    3. DST is a good idea for The North. Period.

  8. I really don’t care which way we go as long as it’s permanent. So let’s fix this the issue, somebody do something instead of sitting around doing nothing.

  9. DST should absolutely be abolished. It’s just asinine all around. 12:00 is not close to noon, the sun rises too late, and it causes an exaggeration of sunset times with a 3-hour swing between summer and winter in SoCal when it naturally swings 2 hours on its own. If the government is really dead set on making us do things earlier, all they have to do is shift their operating hours to one hour earlier and private enterprise would follow suit. DST is so asinine (along with CA’s government) that high schools in the state were mandated to begin a half hour later this year because kids “had to get up too early.” Talk about a facepalm moment.

    1. No! DST should not be abolished! Much prefer having the extra hour of daylight as opposed to it getting dark at 5:30! And besides, I get off work at 5:40 and under standard time, it’s already dark by then…I feel a lot safer walking out to my car when it’s still daylight
