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.

New Hampshire's Charlie Bass

"When Congressman Charlie Bass voted to end Medicare; that was an attack on New Hampshire families like mine."
Jane Brickett is a Social Worker in New Hampshire's North Country. She has a disability and if she didn't have Medicare the doctor bills could bankrupt her.

She's one of the lucky ones. If Republicans succeed in destroying Medicare, Jane's children might be able to find a way to save her house and keep food on the table. Thousands of others seniors and children depending on Medicare and Medicaid won't be so lucky.

It's time to make sure New Hampshire voters know what Charlie Bass has done. We've created another hard hitting ad with our friends at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee showcasing a personal story a real person. Please contribute now to keep the ad on the air.
Republicans will end Medicare if we don't stop them and nothing will hurt Republican Charlie Bass more than the truth.

Let's make sure there isn't a single person in his district who hasn't heard Jane's story.

Contribute now and keep it on the air

Thank you for everything you do.
