Well, doing things right is often harder than screwing them up, but it saves you so much grief in the end.

Looking up ‘Obama countdown clocks’, I prefer days to the election because the number of days is less: ;

however, some countdown clocks aim for the next inauguration day of the next president on Jan 20, 2013:

I’m sorry if I seem so optimistic, but I don’t want to be all ‘doom & gloom’, and I feel a ‘tide change’.

You can see Yukon from eastern Alaska too.

Speaking of gloom and doom, is anyone else wondering if 2012 elections will actually occur?

    They will.

    In the US, handling of elections involves so many checks and balances, and is so spread out among the various legal units that you would have to start and win a civil war in order to shut them down.

    What with half the population opposing them, any attempt to remove the vote would be met with opposition that would make the Tea Parties look like an afternoon tea.

    I have to admit I’m a bit concerned about a surprise declaration of martial law (perhaps in the wake of another 9/11, what with the 10th anniversary coming up?), but then I’m a worrier by nature. I hope the more optimistic commenters are right.

Wake me when it is over.


You can also see British Columbia from south-east Alaska. A veritable world of riches!

Both the Yukon and B.C. are literally one step away from Alaska, whereas Russia is a full two miles off, walkable only in winter.

Just sayin’.
