Santa, Pink Pencils, and Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

Oh S.N.A.P.

  It’s an entitlement, simply put.  While the bureaucratic title is Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (S.N.A.P.), most have come to know the program by its “street” name, food stamps.  Now, Democrats have decided to extend the vernacular term to include the word rubber along with stamp.
