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.

Hit Republicans Hard

A message from Democracy for America:
We hear a lot of talk from Washington about compromise these days, and if you are anything like me, it makes me furious. Why should I have to compromise my values and the investments that I made for my future, so that millionaires and billionaires can get a free ride?

Maybe in Washington you have to tolerate fools who want to kill the American Dream, but Democracy for America members won't let them get away with it out here in America.

The truth is that Republicans in Congress aren't giving an inch on their plan to destroy all of the investments that made America great. They are killing the American dream by kicking the legs out from under everything that supports the middle class -- education, Social Security and Medicare, and infrastructure we need for jobs.

That's not what America voted for and we can't let them slink away back to their in district fundraisers without answering for those votes. That's why we made this TV ad to hit Republicans hard and send Washington a message. Click here to Watch the ad and contribute $10 to keep it on the air now.

We've already locked down prime time spots targeting Sunday shows like NBC's "Meet the Press" and "Inside Washington" as a shot across the bow that members of Congress won't miss.

The next step is to take it directly to the districts of vulnerable Republicans nationwide, like Allen West and David Rivera in Florida. Both Republicans are tied to scandals and each will face challenges next November by progressive Democrats ready to fight for the American Dream.
Contribute now to get the ad on the air in highly targeted districts of vulnerable Republicans.
We're going on the attack, because if Democrats in Washington won't stand up and fight Republicans -- we will.
Thank you for everything you do.
