  • 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.

    To Accomplish Replacement . . . And Why

    And no, I'm not talking about Randy Richardville, though I agree that he needs to go, too.  Nope, I'm referring to a different scoundrel here.

    Last Sunday, on the Dump Saul Anuzis facebook page, I wrote:

    "While all of this various and sundry political talk is very fascinating, let's please keep our primary objective in mind . . . that of dumping Saul Anuzis as Michigan's RNC National Committeeman. We do need to start recruiting a potential challenger, and develop a delegate strategy (using the 2010 pool) to accumulate the votes necessary to dump him."

    The conversation threads, both on the page and in the group, were starting to get a tad afield of the original purpose, which is to focus the efforts to replace Saulius Anuzis as Michigan's Republican National Committeeman.  Best to stay focused here, as we only have about seven weeks left to work with.  Grab a pot of coffee, and let's go below the fold.

    A few notes on Rick Snyder's various (and varied) responses

    What's up, team... a few notes, for the sake of clarity and due diligence:

    1) Lansing insider publication MIRS approached Snyder yesterday to ask about his position on life issues.  Snyder declined to speak with MIRS and sent his spokesman to address these issues instead.  So to speak.  According to MIRS:

    Waters declined to give Snyder's position on the Michigan Business Tax (MBT), the MBT surcharge or the state budget. He also declined to state if his boss is pro-choice or pro-life.

    "As you can imagine, he has very strong opinions on issues, but he's at the listening phase right now," Waters said. "He's interested in hearing what the citizens have to say."

    2) I personally approached the Snyder campaign directly through John Yob and requested an interview after Yob claimed my "moderate" claims were off-base.

    Mr. Snyder through Mr. Yob declined the opportunity.

    3) Instead, Snyder ostensibly granted an interview to Jerry Zandstra, a former candidate in the GOP Senate Primary in 2006.

    4) Worth noting that Snyder and Zandstra are both current or former Yob clients.  The "interview" was coordinated by John.

    5) I find it more than a little curious that Zandstra didn't ask the candidate about his political giving, the basis of pro-lifers' criticism.

    Mr. Snyder has not addressed his donation history.


    -Why has he chosen to give thousands of dollars to a Democratic Congressman?

    -Why was his only political giving in 2008 a giant check scribbled to Cure Michigan, a ballot campaign that supported 100% fatal, 100% obsoleted human experimentation?

    -Why has he given big-bucks to the IMP-PAC, a political organization that exists for the sole purpose of building a pro-abortion wing in the Republican Party?

    6) I am, personally, disappointed that Jerry Zandstra, someone whose stand for life I've always appreciated, decided not to address the root issues.  But I'm just one guy.

    What do YOU think?

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Online Discussion with Jerry Zandstra and Rick Snyder

    RightMichigan -

    I have not taken a position in the Governor's race.  I am a fan of Congressman Hoekstra and certainly know Mike Cox and Terri Land as well.  
    I do think that our state and our party are hungry for a leader with the ability to facilitate an environment that spurs economic development and job creation.   In terms of this type of experience, Rick Snyder is second to none.  

    I conducted the following online discussion with Rick Snyder and had the opportunity to talk with him about his position on the life issue.  Although his emphasis is clearly on fixing the economy, he is indeed pro-life and would likely meet the pro-life certification requirements of the Pro-Life Federation should he choose to apply.

    I encourage your readers to give Rick the opportunity to present his views before rushing to judgment about his positions.  Michigan is hungry for a vision to turn this economy around and we might find that Rick is the candidate best able to lead our party and our state back from this mess that the Democrats created.


    Dr. Jerry Zandstra
    President, Pro-Life Federation

    Online discussion with Rick Snyder follows...
