I'll be honest, i never really though of him as ‘powerful’ or anything. Frankly, most people find him to simply be a pain in the ass. As a matter of fact, i was watching the news yesterday, and apparently his approval ratings (from a combination of 7 different polls) is at an all-time low of 31%, with a disapproval rating of 56%.
Wow. I mean, really? Only one out of every three people like you? And more than half of the 300 million people in the US hate you?? That’s like 150 MILLION people!!!! What the HELL did he do!?! He must be one of the most disliked joe-shmoes on the PLANET!!
But I’m getting off track here. My point is, this guy, sitting in his chair, in his almost-round office still can pull some strings.
Case and point: The friggin’ guy can alter the time-space continuum.
That’s right! Maybe it was the top-secret spy training he got in the Army, or perhaps it was a lack of broccoli as a kid, but the president has signed an order to change time as we know it.
On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This act lengthened daylight savings time (DST) in the United States. Under the new act, DST begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November, which corresponds to Mar. 11 and Nov. 4 in 2007.This monkey, with the swoop of a pen, has rendered some of the most advance computer systems on the planet “off by an hour” for FOUR WEEKS out of the year.
DST rules affect date and time processing functions in computers and applications. Many applications have been programmed to handle DST based on the old start and stop dates and as a result, the time could be incorrect by one hour for four weeks each year. Aerospace Industry groups have formed cross-divisional DST project teams to identify what impact this change will have on all software applications, hardware equipment, and critical systems.
Do I really need to say any more?
