Daylight savings time was ushered in by Progressives like Brit PM Robert Pearce, a member of the Liberal Party who did not like having his golfing cut short by dusk! It was taken up by Progressive-Fascist Woodrow Wilson, another golfer (like someone else we know) in 1918. They of course lied and said it enhanced agriculture, it doesn’t, and that it saves energy, and again, it doesn’t.
1. The (DOT) concluded in 1975 that DST might reduce the country’s electricity usage by 1% during March and April but the National Bureau of Standards reviewed the DOT study in 1976 and found no significant savings.
2. Australia started using DST in 2000 in late winter, overall electricity consumption did not decrease, but the morning peak load and prices increased. And in Western Australia DST increased electricity consumption during hotter days and decreased it during cooler days, with consumption rising 0.6% overall.
3. A 2007 study found that the earlier start to DST that year had little or no effect on electricity consumption in California.
4. A 2008 study examined billing data in Indiana (DST) and concluded that DST increased overall residential electricity consumption by 1% to 4%.
Not to mention that DST is a pain in the ass, changing clocks, screwing up people’s sleep patterns, creating chaos (Progs love that!), causing missed work productivity, weeks to get used to it, and there are health risks mentioned in studies but the bottom line is that this Progressive idea flies in the face of Natural Law, i.e., following Nature’s schedule of when the sun rises and sets. As a matter of fact Farmers have fought against this shit from the beginning and yet the Government continues a stupid program.
Consider the First Amendment. Upchuck Schumer, a greasier slimier dirtier more corrupt politician there is not unless you compare him to BJ Bubba Clinton is working to pass some bullshit law about media protection. That is, only “legit” journalists receive protection under the First Amendment. The trouble is, is that the First Amendment protects ALL speech, period. Here again Progressives seek to limit a natural freedom granted by our Creator!
- Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Why do we need a law that limits the free speech of say, bloggers? Because we’re kicking the shit out of the politicians on both sides, i.e., McLame, Grahamnesty, The Obomination, etc., and we pass the word around and they don’t like it. But here again Progressives seek to usurp Natural Law with man’s laws, which in the end, fail. Unfortunately as with all Progressive crap it costs us time, money, and/or valuable resources getting to the point where failure is finally acknowledged.
BTW the Gunny will continue to follow the motto above and who knew that Print Shop in High School would come in handy one day! WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED!
Consider the Second Amendment and the “Stand your ground law.” Progressives in Connecticut fight to limit legal gun ownership and are forcing registration, which flies in the face of the Second AM. The Natural Law is the right to self-defense and that includes being armed to repel a personal attack, a home invasion, etc., yet the left consistenly works to deny that Right and subvert Natural Law!
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The Second Amendment upsets the Left because it enables we the people to organize a militia system as codified under Federal Law, help repel an invasion (Pancho Villa in NM), it facilitates a Natural Right of self-defense, and what disturbs Upchuck Schumer and his ilk, having the arms to deter a tyrannical government, the kind of government we have now. The Natural Law is to be a free man/woman, free to keep and bear the arms necessary for their self-defense and defense of others. The Natural Law IS to stand your ground and defend yourself, your family, or OTHER PEOPLE and here again Progressives like Upchuck Schumer seek to usurp the Natural Law which was codified back during the Greek and Roman Empires!
The real enemy of freedom, liberty, prosperity, and strength are the Progressives in both parties. The DNC is 100% Progressive, you can bet your last buck there and you can ID the Progressives in the GOP by the tag of Neocon. The nation builders. The ones wanting to take Democracy abroad (Wilson felt the same way) to countries that don’t want it, don’t understand it, and could care less! The ones like McShamnesty who seek to involve the US in every scrape, skirmish, incident, etc, in order to meddle in other nation’s affairs! The Natural Law in the arena of geopolitics was exactly as President George Washington said in his Farewell Address… MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS!
Our foreign policy must go back to trading with all, interfering with none, and if you fuck with us, we’ll crush you so hard that four generations later the enemy is still shitting their pants over how bad we kicked their asses and no we’re not going to help you rebuild.
