Lawmakers Hate Kids
In a CNN article about the new changes to Daylight Savings Time, Rep Fred Upton, R-Michigan had something stupid to say: “Kids across the nation will soon rejoice,” said Upton, because they’ll have another hour of daylight trick-or-treating.
Maybe I live in fantasy land, but I lived in lots of different cities and states as a kid, and I can’t recall a single kid going out trick-or-treating before dusk. We wanted to, sure, but we always had to wait. It’s Halloween, for heaven’s sake!
So, now, instead of trick-or-treating from 7pm to bedtime (9pm?), kids will only get to trick-or-treat from 8pm to bedtime (probably the same 9pm). How idiotic.
If you asked any kid across the nation, they wouldn’t be “rejoicing” about this. On behalf of all stupid adults everywhere, I sincerely apologize. It’s not my fault, I swear.
