I'd rather have an extra hour of light in the evening than morning.

Longer evenings are more useful than early mornings. Also, it’s been scientifically proven that switching the clocks on your population increases work injury, vehicle accidents, and heart attaks

Poorly worded question. From the responses, many misunderstood the question. I can live with either DLS or Standard time, just pick one and leave it.

Health and safety are major concerns. Darkness about 5 pm in Dec. is dangerous. Additionally, the later hour in the morning of additional daylight is beneficial to commuting and mental outlook.

I would be for leaving DST permanent but I think it would be less of a hassle to go opt into standard time. It's written into law that we have that option. We don't need a useless act of congress

Absolutely make DST permanent!! More productive daylight hours. I note that folks are responding to this survey in the wrong columes. Pay attn to what you are voting for. Most comments make no sense.

Before DST became law it was rejected by the people three times. It was the legislature tat made it law. Time to do the will of the people.

We could just put our clocks back the one minute or whatever it is that changing the time helps with. I like longer days. It just doesn't make sense to change our time by an hour.

Actually, the question is should we keep STANDARD TIME permanent... I think "natural earth time" is what we need to get back to.

Hard to answer, you should just ask do you prefer DST or Standard time, the questions make no sense. However my answer, we should stay on Standard Time year round and stop messin with crap!

We are no longer an agrarian society and don’t need extra daylight hours to harvest the fields. Let’s just go back permanently to standard time and leave our clocks alone. It is too much of a hassle.

Becoming a union member saved my life and changed the direction of my life, being a single mom of two with no child support. I vigorously approve of unions.

My brief stint as a first line manager convinced me that workers need unions. I saw how upper management, in that setting, really wanted to treat workers.

I worked for a union and later belonged to a union. The downfall of America's middle class correlates directly with the downfall of unions, beginning at least 30 years ago.

Um, what was the question? Anyway, wouldn't you have had to have a job to be in a union? And wouldn't you have to be able to read to have a job?
