Opinion from a follower…
” This entire antiquated tradition started in the early 1900’s, and it wasn’t for farmers, or school busses, like we’ve heard. It actually was for retailers to get an extra hour of shoppers. Considering how little people shop in brick & mortar stores anymore, it seems so ridiculous. Not to mention the amount of electricity consume increases up to 25% while we keep this change . So, here we go messing with individuals’ everyday habits. Mental health illnesses spike 60% in some areas. Health problems spike.
Antidote evidence speaks to everyone hating it. I don’t know anyone who likes it!!!
However, NONE of this would be necessary if Mitch McConnell would put forward the bill that passed through the entire Florida legislative process. Then reached Senator Marco Rubio’s Desk where he tried to get the bill on the floor for a vote. But of course it died. Why we even need their permission (the federal government) is beyond my comprehension. Other states such as Arizona and Indiana are somehow exempt and don’t change their clocks twice a year. They must have passed the bills when things actually happened in DC. – unfortunately not LOL.”
