It's time for our annual tribute to the inadequacies of the Bush administration. As a result of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, it's time to move our clocks ahead one hour. It was the best idea that George W. Bush could come up with in an effort to combat the rising price of oil. Go figure.
Here we are, 6 years later, and oil is still rising. Nice fix, George.
In addition to the extra hour of daylight (unless you get out of bed an hour earlier) the Energy Policy Act of 2005 gave incentives to companies to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. I think that worked out great.
Meanwhile, we have more Daylight Savings Time than we have Standard Time. How does that make it standard? Why not just leave the clock the way it is and we'll deal with the so-called extra hour of darkness between November 15 and March 15. How bad could that be?
What are we saving, exactly?
