Always on or always off, I don't care which, just pick one and give sufficient lead time for development.

Subject: "Permanent" DST 

In a unanimous vote today, the US Senate approved a bill which would 

1) Cancel DST permanently, and 
2) Move every square inch of US territory 15 degrees to the east. 

My opinion of this ought to be obvious from my rhetoric. Hopefully, it will 
fail, because it's likely to be the end of rational time worldwide, and even 
if you do log in UTC, it will still make your life difficult. 

I'm poleaxed; I can't even decide which grounds to scream about this on... 

Hopefully, the House or the White House will be more coherent in their 
decision on this engineering construct.
