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.

Wisconsin TV Ad

Which would you vote for -- tax breaks for millionaires or essential funding for schools?

Luther Olsen voted for the millionaires and now he's one of six Wisconsin Republicans being recalled for his attacks on working families.

We just finished a new TV ad showing how Olsen's votes to cut school funding and support tax breaks for the rich has devastated communities across Wisconsin. 
Take a look and please contribute $10 to keep it on the air.
Last night, the first recall election was a big win for progressives. Republicans tried recalling Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen for standing up to their radical right-wing agenda -- and he crushed their Tea Party candidate by a two-to-one margin.

That's a win for the defense, but we need to recall at least three Republicans next month to take back the State Senate and end the right-wing war on working families. Here's what we're doing to win:

Right now, DFA Wisconsin Field Director Nick Passanante is on the ground leading our largest field program ever. So far, we've knocked on 20,262 doors in Republican State Senate Districts 8, 10 and 32.

Thousands of DFA and PCCC volunteers nationwide have teamed up to make over 70,000 calls to Wisconsin voters as part of our Call Out The Vote program.

Now, we're expanding our campaign into District 14 with our first television ad.

Our TV ads earlier this year got massive media attention for featuring real Wisconsinites. We don't make cookie-cutter ads -- we feature real people hurt by Scott Walker and his right-wing Republican war on working families.
Please contribute $10 now to keep our new TV ad on the air.

We're not taking anything for granted. We're going to keep hitting Republicans for their attacks on middle class Wisconsin families -- on the air, on the ground and on the phone -- until we win.

Thank you for everything you do.
