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.

Koch Brothers Exposed

A message from PFAW: Last week marked the release of the latest feature film from acclaimed director Robert Greenwald and our friends at Brave New Foundation: Koch Brothers Exposed.

Brave New Foundation is making the film available immediately on DVD with an Action Guide so that you can watch with family and friends and then do something to make a difference.
Get the DVD now, for only $20 (including shipping and handling), and $5 of each DVD purchased will go to support the work of People For the American Way.
The film features expert interviews, investigative exposés and extras about what the billionaire Koch brothers are doing to our democracy.
After you sign up to receive the DVD, please register to host a screening at your home, library, church or local community center. There is a downloadable Action Guide for you to use in preparing your discussion of the film and helping your audience take effective action on the issues you care about.
The Koch brothers’ elitist agenda includes aggressive union busting and promoting countless policies that benefit the 1% at the expense of the 99%. Charles Koch has been reported as saying, “I just want my fair share, and that’s all of it.”
Get the DVD now, and find out how the Koch brothers were behind the Tea Party effort to resegregate schools in North Carolina and the Wisconsin Republicans’ attack on working families. Find out about their work to subvert democracy by buying politicians, and to get the government to look the other way on corporate polluters that are making real people fatally sick with their reckless abuse of the environment. And remember, $5 from each DVD sold goes to support PFAW.
Then, sign up to organize a screening, or check back at the Screening page to find and attend one near you. After watching, we encourage you to discuss the film with your family and friends then look through the Action Guide to decide on which actions you can agree to do.
With your help we can start to reverse the damage that has been done.
Thank you,
Ben Betz, Online Strategy Manager
