    I find it disheartening that, in a time of great tragedy such as this, with thousands dead and hundreds of thousands homeless and displaced, there are people who, fortunate enough to not be affected by what's happened, attempt to use this for political gain.

    This should be a time for helping, not criticizing.

    Thanks for hearing my brief rant.

    Hi Jack -

    While I don't think anyone should be using this for political gain, just as sickening to me are the people who are searching for ways to let the government off the hook for this.

    Have been wondering where you were. Haven't seen you for a while. Glad to have you back and commenting.

    I guess I see the government as never being a solution to problems we as people should take responsibility for. But if you're truly looking for perspective, visit:

    Take care,

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
