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 People's Testimony

Happy 4th of July. We’re celebrating America’s independence from British rule, but right now Americans are faced with the need to declare our independence from corporate and special interest dominance of our elections.
The nationwide grassroots movement to get unlimited corporate money out of elections, restore the voice of the voter and take back our democracy for the People is growing every day. And on July 17, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on efforts in Congress to amend the Constitution to undo the harm of 2010’s Citizens United Supreme Court decision and restore Government By the People.
July 17 can be a historic day in helping to energize our movement. Please be a part of it by submitting short video testimony about how Citizens United and unlimited corporate influence in elections impact our democracy and you as a voter.
Find out more at
At The People’s Testimony site, you can watch existing video and submit your own.
Once you get us your video, we can help get it in front of key elected officials, help push it around the internet via social media and use it in future video products, lobbying and to mobilize other activists.
Instructions for creating and submitting your video are on the site. Just:
  1. Film it (using anything from a web cam or a phone to a better video camera whatever you have access to)
  2. YouTube it
  3. Email it
We’ll do the rest.
Please check out now, submit video and HELP SPREAD THE WORD.
Thanks, and have a great holiday!
