HERE IS WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND
Tuesday, November 29, 2005
Ted Turner says Iraq 'no better off' after U.S.-led war The Associated Press - November 29, 2005 MANHATTAN, Kan.Media mogul Ted Turner said Monday that Iraq is "no better off" following the U.S.-led invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003. Returning From Iraq, Lieberman Praises U.S. Strategy, Urges Bush to tout Successes WSJ- November 29, 2005 WASHINGTON -- Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, just back from Iraq, wants President Bush to give the American people details about the progress being made in that country - from military triumphs to the proliferation of cellphones and satellite dishes. Do we go with Lieberman who has been over to Iraq 4 times in the last 17 months, or should we go with Jane Fonda's ex?

    Jack,
    I think we can mostly dismiss Turner's comments, or at least assign to them the same weight we would any other one person's opinions. We too often credit celebrities with wisdom they don't neccassarily have.
    As for Lieberman, I often wonder why he doesn't leave the Democratic party. He gets very little respect from the Dems. I talk to.

    He is an old Democrat. He stands largely for what Democrats used to stand for--kind along the lines of a JFK Democrat. The mainstream of the Democrat party has become left-wing activists, liberal elites, and minority special interests. No place for a true Democrat in that party anymore...

    Exactly correct. What disturbs me most is how they say they are the party of the American worker, the party of the minorities, the party of the oppressed. How come whenever you saw/see one of their rallies or fundraisers, all you ever see are rich White people? If they are the party of the environment, why do they all have their own jets and SUVs? Not saying they should not, but dont act like you are so principled and standing up for the "little guy." Do they really care about the poor and oppressed, or about their votes? It really has become a party itself owned by big money, and does not stand for what they used to stand for it seems. And there is no place for a true anything in either party anymore. What is supposed to happen next, I wonder?

    Well, as long as they're getting cell phones and Pay Per View.

    I just read a bunch of Lieberman quotes going back to 1991. Agree with him or disagree, he has always been consistent with his current position and always wanted Saddam to be removed.

    it's the inconsistency that is so damn wrong about all this. i believe if we as a country were like lieberman in our stance (consistent). Then agree or disagree, at least countries knew what we stood for. Instead we look fickle...hypocritical.

"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.
