Taxes, black and white -- From time to time, I like to point out the absurdity of some arguments for the estate tax. Democrats frequently argue that the estate tax is just because it "only affects two percent of the population." The party that claims to be for minority rights thinks a tax that targets rich people is just because the targeted population is a minority – in this case a very small minority. I have often said, "What if there was a tax that only targeted black people? Would that be okay too?" Well, guess what? A black congressman is proposing a tax break for blacks and women only. It doesn't matter whether they are rich or poor. They would get the tax break because they are black or female. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) wants a tax break for minority and female ownership of media outlets. He calls it the Telecommunications Ownership Diversification Act, and it would give a capital gains tax deferment to black and female buyers of radio and TV stations. Good grief! Someone actually does think that taxation should be based on skin color. Ralph Bristol

"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.
