See "Losing U.S. popularity - According to a Rasmussen Report from 2013, only 37 % of Americans see the purpose of DST compared to 45 % the year before."
While springing forward and falling back may be losing popularity, if it were abolished I am guessing that the debate between whether to permanently revert to standard time or always stay on daylight saving time would evoke a lot of strong reaction.
You can tell someone is a blind Democrat if the only rich people they can name are the Kochs.

Maybe you need to look into getting a different job.
I was thinking about this type of response, commonly given when someone says they don't love their job, when I was reading another article where 'college grads with degree in X can't find work'. There the common advice was "maybe you should have gotten a degree in something more practical."
BP, to its credit, has accepted responsibility even though its almost certainly not to blame.
Just like the companies whose foreign factories run sweatshops and use child labor aren't to blame? If it's BP's well, they have a responsibility to ensure the other companies they hire operate in a responsible fashion, even it it entails having a full time BP employee stay on the rig to inspect and monitor what's going on.
Since when is gun registration violating innocent until proven guilty?
Is it the same way as driver and vehicle licensing violates it?
That is... not at all?
Driving is a privilege that can be revoked, registration to allow the authorities to verify that you're still worthy of the privilege makes sense. Gun ownership is a right. The only benefit of registration is so that police can identify suspects if a particular type of weapon is used in a crime. There's your presumption of guilt.
