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.

Recall Right-Wing Legislators


Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's overreaching, undemocratic and anti-middle class law taking away collective bargaining rights for public employees went into effect yesterday. In Wisconsin, right-wing lawmakers have waged all out war on working families and the American Dream, not only stripping workers' most fundamental right to bargain collectively and therefore have a voice, but trying to divide the middle class against itself by demonizing public sector workers. 
As similar right-wing attacks spring up in more and more states around the country, Wisconsin's recall election laws allow us to do something to stem the tide now. 

Winning in Wisconsin is the first step towards winning in other states AND winning nationally in 2012. Help us Recall the Right in Wisconsin and stop the overreaching agenda that threatens to undo everything that makes this country great.
