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.

The Magic of Bain Capital's Profits

A message from MoveOn.org:
It's official: Mitt Romney is a bully.

He bullied classmates as an entitled high school senior,1 and he bullied workers by wrestling away their jobs and benefits to make himself a millionaire.

We've got a great video from Robert Reich that explains how Mitt Romney's Bain Capital, and other private equity firms, stomp on workers and skip taxes to fill their wallets. It's so good that a group dedicated to defending Wall Street firms like Bain has attacked Reich over the video.

So let's hit back at them by sharing this video even further to let your friends and family know who Mitt Romneyreally is, and how he really got rich.
Professor Reich explains that when people in the 1% like Mitt Romney and his fellow private equity raiders scheme to fire people, cut benefits, and duck taxes, the 99% has to foot the bill.
But we can change that. The first step is making sure that as many people as possible know the problem. That's why sharing this video in your social network is so important. Will you share it today?
