Here’s the haps:
All this time I thought our government was doing nothing but wasting time and boy was I wrong. While you would expect governments to take on minor problems, like Russians bombing civilian hospitals and ignoring Geneva Conventions, targeting fleeing women and children. And while the Taliban sits on eighty billion dollars worth of equipment we generously donated to them and their anti-American cause, with no thought of getting anything in return because we’re so nice like that. Gas prices that are out of control with no stopping in sight. No, none of this minor, petty stuff for our government. Why, they have been on a mission of such great import that they haven’t taken a pause to catch their breath long enough to chastise another leader of a free country who has been beating and bullying his own people because they drove to their capitol and honked their horns. Did they bother to mess around with such banal issues as whether Putin’s actions and Biden’s inactions will embolden China to invade Taiwan with impunity? Or holding the Chinese government accountable for its unconscionable human rights violations including the use of slave labor to manufacture goods for American companies?
No! These minor, petty distractions did not stop their resolve to accomplish a great and noble task. Today, March the Fiteenth, Twenty Twenty-two, the Senate of the United States of America unanimously (let that sink in, unanimously) passed the Sunshine Protection Act. If it passes it will mean that our whole country will be on Daylight Savings Time permanently, never again to worry about whether to spring forward or fall back. No more setting and resetting of the clock, which is already on Daylight Saving Time eight months out of the year.
