    Anybody else getting sick and tired of the government doing crap like this? It's like when Congress decided a few years back to change the start and end dates for Daylight Savings Time. I still have VCRs and computers that change to DST on the "wrong" days now because of this garbage.

    Congress and the federal government: LEAVE THE DATE AND TIME ALONE. It's just fine without your intervention. This is why I am supporting Ron Paul in the 2012 elections -- he recognizes that there is a Constitutional role for the federal government. And screwing around with people's clocks is not in the Constitution.
