*CAUTION - "NEGATIVE SOUNDING" POST* Today many will go to the polls with high or low expectations. While we have a civic responsibility to vote, we have a duty to ourselves to have a realistic perspective. The answer to YOUR or the WORLD's problems is NOT government. While some government is good, look at the many things it hasn't done: It hasn't-

  • ended war
  • brought prosperity
  • brokered equality
  • prevented disasters
  • controlled crime
  • erased bigotry

Look at some of the things it has done: It has-

  • increased the burden of debt
  • launched countless wars
  • created inequities
  • prolonged disasters
  • become criminal
  • fostered hatred

If you go to the polling booth looking for answers you won't find them. Try looking here for starters.

"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.
