Wow you are completely off the points that I was talking about... Maybe if you should have not been a Cyclops for the day and read with both eyes. Maybe you could have noticed that the YOUR could have been OUR but with a spell error? Just like your DEVERE could be a SEVERE? Look (yes, look with both eyes Cyclops...) they want someone out of the political seat because of swearing at someone. I am talking about that. And those are the same type of guys that wants to remove the president because their expectations for him were too high and highly unrealistic. And thus are, disappointed and want him out... But fine, talk about something completely unrelated and has nothing to do with anything that I said. I will clap for you.

OMG, GIVE ME A BREAK! REPLACE SOMEONE OUT OF OFFICE BECAUSE OF SWEARING AT SOMEONE?!?! Are you guys 12 years old? This is a silly and embarrassing proposal. Maybe in the next election, make sure a mute pastor with missing middle fingers gets into the political seat, or put a porcelain Jesus Christ in the seat because that is about as useful as the former. Go ahead and remove the guy you smart people voted for in the first place, and in the same page, remove your president because he is doing much worse than everyone's extremely high and unrealistic expectations.

I still lurk around, maybe waiting for something to post about like right now. I cannot blame the President for what is happening now as he is trying his best for what he believes is best for now, maybe someone else can do it better but he or she is not our President. He was there for the original Constitution (I think..?) so let's have a little more faith and a little more time. What I think maybe needs to be done is to completely stop with these Amendments and unecessary bills (daylight savings hour law on the second hearing, how do we look now...?). Take a real good look at what is necessary and keep it minimal. Real buisnesses are probably afraid to start their buisnesses in Palau because the law of the land is unstable, while the black buisnesses who don't give a damn and steal are seeing opportunities in Palau. Dunno, maybe we'll see something. BTW, Happy Landing, as of recently anyway, is the perfect place to go durng weekend mornings, see what pops up there whenever there is free time, and bring some cash.

Well for me it just doesn't work (make sense), waking up at 6:30am, it is still dark inside our homes, even more if we wake up at 5:30am, we need to turn on the bathroom lights, kitchen lights, etc. My home isn't made of glass or open enough or wall-less for the sunlight to hit inside at 10% from the tree-full horizon. If you go inside any office at anytime, the lights will be turned on irrespective of the time of day as long as there are people inside, some offices may save money if their windows are facing the sunrise or made of glass, but c'mon, there is optimism and being realistic. Some countries have experimented with daylight savings and they observed even more usage of electricity. No country near the equator ever used daylight savings, ever. Don't label it as energy savings. This bill is probably a residue from Sr.'s idea.

They are having the lights lit up to impress the U.S delegates, even some Palauan citizens have American flags adorning their cars. How patriotic. Good way to keep those rock throwing kids from doing their things though, we look more like monkeys with them around.

This is the exact same thing. You turn the clock earlier by an hour, and you wake up earlier with no source of lights at home, so you turn them on preparing for work, then drive to work with your headlights on and using more fuel by law of amperage. You finish work, then when you go home, your lights are turned on and television turned on earlier, there is no savings. This has been observed for many many decades around the world... It has been shown that 12 hours of sunlight and electricity usage in a 24 hour day is the same as 10 hours of sunlight because you will use 14 hours of lighting up your home or work, even if you turn the hours an hour, fore or aft. In the north and south poles, 6 months of sunlight is the same as 6 months of darkness, you won't use electricity in 6 months of sunlight, but you will use it in 6 months of darkness, same electric usage. But what about tiny Palau with the rest of the world when Palau shifts an hour? If they exchange sensitive government or personal documents with Palau with this extra hour difference, how will it affect operation? Anyway, if you turn on your lights at 7:30pm at night, you will still need to turn on your lights until 5:30am in the morning (not 6:30am because the clock has shifted an hour), even if you move the time for or aft, the sun still rises at the same as it has for millions of years. Nice one Whipps Jr. There is a reason why our time zone is where it is and check with geologists and scientists before making a bill like this in the future.
