Do We Really Need Daylight Savings Time?

Every year we go through this, we move the clocks back in the fall and forward in the spring, we gain an hour and lose an hour.  Do we really need to do this?  I don’t see why we do anymore.  Daylight Savings came about a long time ago so farmers would have longer day’s to work in their fields, that’s great but this is the 21st century and with technology being what it is, why change at all?

If it were up to me I would like to see the clocks stay on Daylight Savings, giving us a little extra daylight all year.  I’m sure if you look at the statistics over the years and add up all of the accidents caused by people half asleep because of the time change and how many lost hours of work because of people who forgot to change their clocks, I’m sure the numbers would be huge.  I’m with Arizona and Hawaii, they do not move the clocks, good for them!  I say we all jump on board and pick one or the other and stick with it!
