Sunday Funday: @#*&%^!(  Time Change Edition

(3 minutes)

Just so I didn’t mislead you about the practice of changing the clock twice a year, I thought I would make the title fairly self-explanatory. 

So good morning and welcome to another 8 months of “daylight” time. This will include a couple of missed appointments, maybe a late arrival at work and some growly, owley days until your body finally gives up and admits defeat to the new time. The reasons given for changing the clocks twice a year have been pretty much debunked, but we go on doing it.

The only good thing I can see is that Dear Leader has one less hour to lie, cheat and steal today. Yet I think he will make up for it somehow. He has standards.

When you listen to the news do you often feel like you are swirling around in ——— well something that resembles a household utility?

Reminder that it is Women’s History month, so there will be a few questions mixed in.

  1. The US added @ 20,000 jobs in February. Canada with about 10% of our population added how many jobs in February?

  1. In Iowa City, Iowa, a church had graffiti sprayed on the outside of their building, including what symbol of hate?

  1. Several Democrats announced last week that they would not run for president including what two former cabinet members of the Obama Administration?
  1. New reports said that Dear Leader illegally tried to get the Justice Department to intervene and stop what merger?
