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.

Rove vs. Warren

A message from Democracy for America:
Let's be clear about one thing: Wall Street hates us.

They hate you... me... Occupy Wall Street... and they really hate Elizabeth Warren.

They know that Elizabeth Warren is perhaps their biggest single threat going into 2012. She has a record of fighting banks and holding them accountable. She has tens of thousands of grassroots supporters on the ground in Massachusetts already working to win. And the bottom line is they know she can beat Republican Scott Brown.

So they are pulling out all the stops and bringing in the big guns. Yesterday Karl Rove and American Crossroads GPS announced a $600,000 TV ad buy that misrepresents everything from Occupy Wall Street to Elizabeth Warren and back again.

It's up to us to help deliver the resources Elizabeth Warren needs to fight back and beat these lies -- right now. Watch Karl Rove's lying ad and contribute $10 and fuel Elizabeth Warren's campaign to win. 

This ad is offensive, wrong, and filled with lies.

Let's make sure that Elizabeth Warren has the resources to fight back. Please contribute now.

Thank you for everything you do.
