    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Looking For A Governor

    I would have thought it hard to consider a primary challenge to Rick Snyder a real possibility.

    Given the courage to stand up for what is only right, and sign Freedom-To-Work legislation, it seemed like Rick Snyder sealed the deal for a 2014 re-election bid.  Anyone who would have challenged him would have to have a good explanation as to WHY they might oppose such a righteous outcome.  As some have said, its easier to train a bad Chihuahua to be good, than euthanize it and get a good Sheepdog. (I know that no-one has put it that way, but it just seemed appropriate.) Puppy training our governor seemed to have worked, and by golly that big bite for the rights of Michiganders was worthy of a few accidents on the rug.

    But alas, he is chewing up the furniture and foaming at the mouth now:

    Governor Rick Snyder became only the 6th governor in the US to back Medicaid expansion in accordance with The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Details here. The conservative Heritage Foundation has estimated that this action will cost Michigan taxpayers an additional $835 million.

    The assumption might be that these funds will be reimbursed by the federal government. Do you really believe that? And even if the feds did cover that cost, where do you think that money is coming from?

    That and the budget ballooning to $51 Billion??!:
    "The total executive budget recommendation for fiscal year 2014, including all state and federal revenue sources, is $50.9 billion.
    Leaves one question.

    Do ya folks think its possible old Yeller's got the rabies?

    If so, you KNOW what that means.
