Daylight Saving Time


Daylight Saving Time is upon us again and we start the traditional complaining about why we do this amazingly silly thing twice a year. If I had my druthers, I’d prefer that we always stay on DST, even though I went through the national experiment back in the 1970’s when Dick Nixon inflicted it upon us year round because of the energy crises. which wasn’t as much about an energy shortage as it was an economics lesson, and the last time anybody checked, was never actually solved. At any rate, DST has some advantages, but the constant switching back and forth is crazy. Pick one and stick with it. Plus Ben was up at 5:30am today.

Senator Fred Thompson died over the weekend. He was a great example of good, possibly even great, people being misled when he started shilling for overturning the Constitution and adopting the National Popular Vote system.

imageA Russian airliner crashes in Egypt and ISIL claims credit, even though pretty much nobody believes them. As of today, the airline rejects the theory of mechanical issues or pilot error, and says that the plane experienced “an external impact,” but won’t say what that means. reports are that Putin and Russia are pissed and they are allegedly moving tactical nukes closer to ISIL with the intention of using them. What if this was what they  (Russia) wanted all along? Could this whole thing be a maskirovka?

Tomorrow is Election Day. Does it even matter?
