  • Your New Scoop Site

    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.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    Tag: Expansion Of Welfare

    Dear Michigan State Senate

    Tomorrow, most of you you will likely make the most important decision of your political careers.

    The decision you make has the potential to change forever, the relationship between our state citizens and their governments.  It will grow the number of those who will become dependent on a system that has never kept a promise, met efficiency targets, or solved the problems that it was designed to do.  It will bind us contractually to a leviathan federal bureaucracy that has inserted itself as not only our caretakers, but now as our keepers; and our masters.

    Yet this decision is difficult for some of you?

    Some on the fence claim that "other states will get our cut", as if that makes it right to ink a deal with the devil.  Some say "this helps our books out", ignoring the fact that its all borrowed money or time.  We WILL be paying for it after only a couple years, and given the gimmicks the feds are using to find financing to pay for this temporary buy-off, we see that money source might not be so reliable.  Some say that "the hospitals build in the costs of indigent care to paying patients". yet forget to remind us that hospitals have advantages granted by local governments to offset those costs.

    Gains from agreeing to this might be a temporarily solvent budget, a few legislative measures considered as part-of-the-deal, or even a bunch of happy big-hospital lobbyists. In the 1800s, FRÉDÉRIC BASTIAT book "the law", described the latter:

    "The Fatal Idea of Legal Plunder
    But on the other hand, imagine that this fatal principle has been introduced: Under the pretense of organization, regulation, protection, or encouragement, the law takes property from one person and gives it to another; the law takes the wealth of all and gives it to a few--whether farmers, manufacturers, shipowners, artists, or comedians. Under these circumstances, then certainly every class will aspire to grasp the law, and logically so."
    Feed it.

    Providing for unlimited new expansions in safety nets only creates new dependencies. In turn building new provisions for new needs.  It demonstrates a distrust in one's fellow man to provide for him or herself.  It shows a fear of the unknown result of true independence, like the type exhibited who once upon a time fought against such mechanisms.  Indeed, it is growth of government, regular and expected, that now happens nearly without counter action. It grows and consumes like a beast.  Anyone can step aside and watch that beast maul its victims without stepping in to distract, scare, or engage.

    Yet as long as the beast is loose, it simply becomes more emboldened and finds more victims.

    Find courage to face down this beast senators.

    Pure governmental a$$hattery.

    How about a nice big bowl of Yooper Super Scooper Fudge ice cream?

    Or Traverse City Cherry Bomb or maybe a sugar cone of Very Vernors?

    Those flavors haven't been created yet but they could be in the Pure Michigan ice cream contest, which kicks off Wednesday.

    Pure Michigan is teaming up with Hudsonville Ice Cream in an effort to help promote the bounty of food and agricultural products available in the state.


    At least I know which Crapitalism brand name not to buy from now on.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Salute to South Carolina Republicans

    Spineless squish republiCant's in Lansing, take note of what testosterone looks like.

    The South Carolina House approved a bill Wednesday criminalizing the implementation of President Obama's health care law in the state.

    The Republican-controlled House voted 65-39 on the Freedom of Health Care Protection Act.

    The act renders "null and void certain unconstitutional laws enacted by the Congress of the United States taking control over the health insurance industry and mandating that individuals purchase health insurance under threat of penalty."

    "This kind of victory occurs when the grassroots across the State come together and coalesce," Chris Lawton, spokesman for the Greenville Tea Party, told The Greenville Post. "I could not be prouder."

    The bill declares "Obamacare" unconstitutional - despite the Supreme Court ruling last year that the Affordable Health Care Act was constitutional - and that there will be criminal penalties for enforcing the law.

    Gov. Nikki Haley earlier this year said that the state will not implement the nation's health care law.


    About damn time a BOLD message is sent.  Of course, the above is example why "Team R" in Michigan, continues its path of dwindling election results with following the stealth Democrat Nerd agenda.  Merely being a Corporatists "it's about jobs" fed, and state, debt slave is setting the Pale Pastel bar too low for this once Great State, and Nation.  BUT, y'all got your second dose of Bobby ShowStak leadership rewards, didn'tchya?

    AFP has made it easier to reach your legislators

    State lawmakers are considering a provision of President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that would expand Medicaid to single, childless adults up to 133% of the poverty level. Doing so would add around half a million additional people to the Medicaid rolls at a cost to Michigan taxpayers of $1.3 billion.
