The Morning After – Observations On Election 2012

The Election 2012

406 is typically an apolitical site.  And even though this post is touching on the topic of politics, it’s not going to be a “political” post (at least that’s not my intent).  This isn’t about who won, who lost, who I voted for or who I didn’t.  This is just some observations I have the morning after President Obama got reelected as this great nation’s leader. Nearly 2 billion dollars were spent on the presidential … Continue reading

Should September 11th Be A National Holiday?

September 11th Flag - Morning

As I sit down to write this post, I honestly have no idea where I’m going with it.  I’ve got some thoughts in mind but they’re not fully formed.  I’ve talked in previous years about where we were on September 11th, 2001 so I won’t bother rehashing it here other to say that we were living in DC.  It’s been 11 years and while the buildings have been rebuilt and we’ve gone on with our … Continue reading

Obama Wins The Nobel Peace Prize… Um… OKaaay

That said… President Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize this morning.  All politics aside, … Continue reading

Random And (Not So) Deep Thoughts

Deep Thoughts

My son has taken to sleeping in the nude.  I’m not sure why I think that’s so funny but it cracks me up every time I think about it. “Better late than pregnant” – this line came from some random email forward that I got and it made me laugh. The Tribe kicked the shit out of the Yankees on opening day of their new stadium.  The Yankees will probably win the World Series this … Continue reading

This Is Brilliant!

Jib Jab - Time For Some Campaigning

I’m not big on political stuff simply because I have YET in my time on Earth run across an argument that has ended in someone changing their mind.  Politics and religion are fun to talk about but don’t kid yourself into thinking that you’re going to be able to change someone’s opinion. That being said, this is video from JiBJab is hilarious!  Enjoy! http://sendables.jibjab.com/originals/time_for_some_campaignin
