11-7-2021: USSA “GOVRMINT” TIME ENDS! (published 11-7-21)

 Introduction

Why am I sitting here, on a nice hiking day, writing? My website articles take precedent over hiking, as I assume to myself. I'm “fixing'” to call a good friend and my youngest brother also. My “bionics” are doing well enough.

2021 Daylight Savings Time USA Survey Who Likes It Who Hates It?

The title of this section is what I used to search the Interweb earlier today. My search produced too many items. I will pick a few.

You can figure out who YouGovAmerica is, as I did. Those folks have one somewhat interesting article: “Daylight Saving Time: Americans [W]ant to [S]tay [P]ermanently ‘[S]prung [F]orward’ and not ‘[F]all [B]ack”. (I had to correct their capitalization errors.) The article was written by Kathy Frankovic, Politics & current affairs, on 11/4/2021, 6 PM EDT.

Another, 11/5/2021, article is on AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. (October 2021). “Dislike for [C]hanging the [C]locks [P]ersists” [apnorc.org/projects/dislike-for-changing-the-clocks-persists]. (Yes, I corrected their capitalization errors.)

Finally, Save Standard Time has interesting information. They have Opinion Poll links that are from 2014 to 2019. Save Standard Time is part of International Alliance for Natural Time. Well, I'm glad that those of us who have various opinions on “govrmint” time have an international alliance!

Conclusion

Well, at least “govrmint” time has ended, once again. I had to reset a “lucky” thirteen different time pieces. There are fourteen in all, but Mrs. Appalachian Irishman reset the time on her '08 Honda Civic. Thanks for bailing me out of my “lucky” thirteen, dear!

Papaw Marion Ferrell (4/13/1880 - 11/21/1970) hated “govrmint” time, as he called it. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, Papaw!
