Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush | World Wide Weird | The Australian:

"NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren.

Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime, particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.

'I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent,' said Ms Williams, 64.

'Right now, I would love to kill George Bush.' Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered. "

    And your mama didn't tell you that if you didn't straighten up she'd slap you into tomorrow!

    Classy eh? Not as bad as Harry Reid calling Bush stupid in front of school kids. Can you imagine these people running things? They would just kill whomever doesn't agree with them.

    Hi Helen!

    Hmm...I don't know that I would equate what my mom said to a person telling school children that President Bush should be dead. Not when much of the world thinks so.

    Larry, I never understood why so many Nobel recipients are so prone to violence--look at its history.

"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.
