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.

2012 Presidential Election Survey



A message from PFAW:
This will be one of the most critical presidential elections in our nation's history. And we want to know what you think our progressive priorities should be in the 2012 election season. 

So please take a moment to take our 2012 Presidential Election Year survey here. 

If we are not fully engaged this year, we could actually end up with a far-right Tea Party extremist President who supports:
  • Judges who bend the law to side with corporate special interests over the rights of ordinary Americans
  • Rigging Election Laws to make it harder for minorities and young people to vote
  • Rolling back civil rights
  • Eradicating educational standards
  • Punishing teachers who teach science in the classroom
  • Repealing laws protecting gays' and lesbians' rights
  • Eliminating financial regulatory forms
  • Privatizing Social Security, and ending Medicare as we know it
  • Jailing doctors who perform certain medical procedures on women
  • Eliminating the rights of workers to have collective bargaining
  • And a whole lot more proposals that would terrify anyone not part of the extreme Far Right.
This will be one of the most critical presidential elections in our nation's history. And we want to know what you think our progressive priorities should be in the 2012 election season. 
In other words, they are out to destroy our nation and democracy as we know and create a “corporatocracy.” Backed by billionaires like the Koch brothers, and big fundraisers like Karl Rove, right-wing candidates this year are beholden to big money and Wall Street more than ever … Which means, if they win, corporations will be running our country—and we will be a “corporatocracy.” What do YOU think the best way is to fight it — Survey's just a click away right here. 

In the last major election, thanks to a conservative Supreme Court decision, wealthy corporations could secretly contribute unlimited amounts of money to influence elections and look what happen. They nearly took over every state in the country and won the House of Representatives. 

Imagine what 2012 will be like.
 If we lose, we will not be living in a democracy, but by a government that is run and controlled by corporations, and their elected puppets on Capitol Hill — a “corporatocracy.” 

So please take the survey now. 

Our country's future is hanging in the balance. 

Thank you,
