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.

Romney & the Koch Bros

A Message from 
We have a couple of new videos to share with you. 

First, check out our new TV ad we are running in New Hampshire exposing Mitt Romney's views on corporate personhood -- using footage of him in front of an Iowa crowd asserting, "corporations are people, my friend."

Then, watch the latest installment of our partners at Brave New Foundation's "Koch Brothers Exposed" series. It shows the dangerous results corporation exercising the same rights as people, as the conservative majority on the Roberts Supreme Court allowed them to do with their Citizens United v. FEC decision. In North Carolina, corporate money -- Koch brothers money, via their Tea Party front group Americans for Prosperity (AFP) -- bought the election of a slate of ultra right-wing school board members who are going about racially resegregating a successful school district. 

Koch resegregation 
Please check out both of these videos and then take action. 
Thanks.
