Financial Daylight Savings

Hopefully, you have sprung your clocks ahead (if not, you are late this morning), and with this in mind, I keep wondering about the point of DST.  The best commentary I can find on this odd idea is:

“Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.” -Native American Leader

Daylight Savings Time? What a Crock!

That sums it up nicely.

That idea, moving around things and claiming you have more, is a good commentary on today’s debt-riddled lifestyles. You borrow money to have more things and are thus farther ahead?

I am going to make a finite amount of money in my life, however, I will give a lot of it to someone else so I can have some material things sooner, and thus feel like I have more.  – Big Cajun Man Corollary of Debt

There are more accidents on Monday after Daylight Savings time, so hopefully, you also drove carefully. I decided to take the day off to be safe.

  1. I love that first quote you have up there; I never understood the need for DST in our day and age. Whatever benefits it provided are no longer relevant.
