Not that I expected much from it, but the petition section at whitehouse dot gov is actually one of the more worthwhile achievements of the Obama administration, inasmuch as (1) it costs comparatively little to run and (2) if your intelligence should be insulted by what you see, it’s probably not the government’s fault.
And once in a while there’s something I can support:
Daylight Savings Time is an archaic practice in our modern society.
The original reasons for the policies are no longer applicable, and the most cited reason for keeping DST (energy savings) has never been shown to be true… We should either eliminate DST or make it the year-round standard time for the whole country.
Apart from the gratuitous S at the end of “Saving,” there isn’t much here for me to complain about.
