First thing I would do as president of the United States. Get rid of daylight savings times. Only a politician could think they gain daylight by moving the clock around..

So if I’ve been racing at 8:30 my race will now begin at 9:30, correct?

That's actually up to the senator of the state (Arizona doesnt have DST). The idea behind DST was to give farmers the most amount of daylight throughout the year. This idea became redundant once farming became automated. Many articles came out in March of this year that politicians may come to an agreement to get rid of DST as other parts of the globe like Europe, Africa, and asian countries don't have a DST system.

My Canadian 2 cents.... which doesn't exist. Have my nickle.

Lol. So yeah. It doesn't give more daylight. That's why it's so stupid.  You just wake up earlier and have the same amount of daylight....

You do have less daylight because the days are shorter. But yeah, who cares what the clock says if you’re waking up at sunrise anyway.

Right. I think it would be reasonable to assume people would rather have an extra hour of sunlight at 5 PM. Not 5 am in the freaking morning.

Farmers disagreed with that many years ago. thats why it originally started
