heard on the radio it's on its way of being passed to make daylight savings time permanent in Florida.

wtf? Only in Florida? Basically we'd be in our own time zone 6 months a year :lol:

And parts of Indiana. There is another state that doesn’t follow DST as well.

most of Arizona doesn't, but there's a small pocket that does

and this move by Florida would require federal approval. it will probably be years if it even happens at all.

They said it was in congress and we should know soon if it's approved. Granted it's a country radio station based in Ocala, soooo :lol:

congressional approval is the next step, but the state has to actually request they review probably hasn't happened yet. but i have a sense congress isn't going to be in much of a hurry to even bother with it.

And, we won't be one time zone. Part of the deal is that the panhandle keeps central time.

Most in the panhandle are glad.

To be clear, Arizona is a little different in that they're never on Daylight Saving Time (except the Navajos), they're just on Mountain Standard Time year round. Florida is saying they want to be on Daylight Savings Time year round.

I did like the citizen on the radio saying it would mess up interstate commerce and agriculture.

And the reason Arizona (And Hawaii and our island territories) does this is because they think the last thing they want in the summer is more activity in sunshine hours. people going to dinner when its 100. Restaurants and malls using more AC. Why does Florida want the opposite?

What Florida just voted for is a difference in the way Winter (not Summer) is handled. Thus, in Orlando sunrise/sunset in December would change from Standard time, to on hour forward to DST time. Sunrise/Sunset changing from current standard time ~7:00 am - ~5:30 pm to DST ~8:00 am - ~6:30 pm.

It does make some sort of sense for winter outdoor stuff like Disney in that they may be able to have more "daylight" hours of operation.

A lot of people are for it, but I always heard the primary opposition to that was because kids would be at the bus stop in the dark.

I was in high school when Jimmy Carter kept DST going one winter during the energy crisis. It didn't get daylight until after 8 a.m.

and yes, this is huffington post :oops: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/fl ... df2c6064fb
In October of last year, while teaching his math class, Swinyar had a conversation with students about the word “fuck” after he overheard it in his classroom.

“If my daughter was dating someone who used the ‘f’ word, I wouldn’t have any respect for that n****r,” Swinyar said, according to the report.

In the same conversation about dating, Swinyar used the slur again.

“If your boyfriend says bad things to you and/or treats you wrong, that means that he’s acting like a n****r,” he said, per the report. “You all should not be dating all these different African Americans [sic] boys because they are not worth it.”
