We don’t have dodo birds anymore because they were too stupid to survive . But we do have Daylight Savings Time, which is why I’m running late today and can never catch up. Of course the dodos were innocent, defenseless creatures who couldn’t help going extinct when humans came along and fundamentally transformed their environment. Daylight Savings Time, by contrast, is the purposeful creation of stupid and arrogant people.
Too bad we can’t trade in DST for the dodo.
God gave us perfectly serviceable days and nights, and the flop-eared knaves in government had to tinker with them. Actually, the days and nights are beyond their reach; so what they’re really tinkering with is… us! “Hey! Let’s take away an hour of their sleep and see what happens!”
Too bad we can’t trade in DST’s enablers and promoters for the dodos. I would defy any ten thousand dodos to do a tenth of the harm done by any single U.S. Senator.
Woodrow Wilson was a big fan of DST; in fact, he vetoed legislation to do away with it. Woodrow Wilson also said the purpose of education was to make a son as unlike his father as possible. What an ass.
They can’t speed up or slow down the movements of the sun and the earth, as decreed by God.
All they can do is foul up our schedules–and to what purpose, who knows?
