Snark: to annoy or irritate

"Snark" has been in English language dictionaries since at least 1906, and Lewis Carroll used the word to describe a mythological animal in his poem, The Hunting of the Snark (1874). Most recently, the word has come to characterize snappish, sarcastic, or mean-spirited comments or actions directed at those who annoy or irritate us.

At first, this blog was just going be a place to gripe, but because it's more satisfying to take action than it is to merely complain, now most of the posts/reposts suggest ways to get involved in solving problems.

For most of us, early April means tax season. But not for 10 of the country's biggest corporations who pay little or nothing in taxes. Some of them, like GE, are actually paying negative taxes: $14 of your family's tax money this year will go to GE's $3.2 billion rebate.1
The thing is, most Americans don't know this freeloading is happening. So with help from Senator Bernie Sanders, we put together the chart below detailing the exact numbers for 10 of the biggest corporate freeloaders.
