    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.

    Getting Health Care Policy Right

    State Representative Greg MacMaster (R-105) has provided a little insight to the past year's health care debate, and his participation in the process.

    "Bait and switch," a term he uses to describe the promises and ultimate product, is no stranger to any government program designed to help so many.  He writes:

    "In 2012, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that the United States leads the world in health care research and disease treatment.

    For the 85% of Americans that have health insurance, the access they have to cutting edge, life saving technologies is among the very best in the world.

    But not every American has insurance, with upwards of 49 million being uninsured, according to the 2010 Census.

    The question for policy makers in Lansing and in Washington should be what to do to help the 15% gain access to the quality care that the rest of us have.

    Unfortunately, Washington and Lansing's answer has been to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    In 2010, Congress passed, and President Obama signed, the widely unpopular and flawed Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Among the provisions of this act is enticing Michigan to put an additional 300,000 citizens on Medicaid with the promise that the federal government would pay for taxpayers' additional costs.

    When the expansion was first voted on in the House, I supported it. This wasn't really Obamacare, we were told. This was Michigan getting its fair share back from Washington.

    It initially seemed like a good deal for Michigan taxpayers, who receive back only $0.80 for every tax dollar they send to Washington.

    But there was more to the bill.

    Whoa! Team Obama Flushes MDCR Fabrication - I Agree With Ozero's Peeps?

    Just catching up on some reading, and a good outcome caught my eye from mLive.

    A state agency says the U.S. Department of Education has dismissed a complaint that sought to end the use of certain American Indian mascots and imagery in Michigan K-12 schools.

    The decision means Michigan schools won't be forced to change their mascots, nicknames or imagery. But the Michigan Department of Civil Rights says it reviewing the decision and considering its next steps.

    What should be MDCR's next steps?  Howza 'bout your department try living in reality, and stop playing make believe games with the "protected species" card for a change.  It would be a good start for this state and nation.  Well, unless Malice Sharpton types are the goal for recruiting a new Executive Director.  Anyhoo, to the meat and potatoes.

    A letter released by the Michigan agency from the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights provided some rationale for the dismissal of the complaint. The letter said the state agency didn't provide sufficient information to infer that racial discrimination has occurred or is occurring. The letter said the state agency "did not provide to OCR any specific examples of race-based incidents nor identify any students or individuals who have suffered specific harm because of the alleged discrimination at any of the named school districts."

    Ouch!  The Fed peeps from this dude's Land of Misfit Toys agenda not only told the MDCR that their envisioned "get to the back of the tipi" moment is a unicorn, but they also told the MDCR their "tipi" doesn't exist too!  What an embarrassing slapdown for some Michigan 'professional' Progressives.  The MDCR's Elizabeth Warren-esque shenanigans didn't hunt.  Either that, or on the Federal "protected species" ladder: it's muhammadans, then sodomites at the top, and somewhere way, way down on the lower rungs is injuns.  Considering the actions emanating from the Obama White Hizzy for the past four plus years, that'd be reasoned a safe bet in any casino.

    Ain't that right, Lansing Democrat, Virg Bernero?

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Most of you have probably aware of this term.

    You most likely associate it with the military making equipment and personnel less visible to detection methods.

    But did you know that this is also a tactic used in the business world?

    And if you haven't caught it already, our governor is a business guy and likes to adopt business methodology wherever he can to accomplish his agenda. Especially when he feels that his agenda won't go over very well with the people he purportedly serves.

    So what is he up to now?

    90 Days Later - Zero Arrests

    90 days have expired since charges were filed by Mr. Crowder, and AFP.  All I can say is, it's amazing.

    In other MSP related news, MSP investigates MSP Trooper who stopped wrong vehicle, threatening death with gun drawn down on innocent startled driver to be fit for patrol.  I know... color me surprised too.  Better blow more money graduating more of those "professionals" to be the armed protectors.  Frilliant.

    Teamsters Image Rehab

    Another Hoffa lives in denial of his thug legacy.

    Detroit News

    "We're trying to keep my grandfather's reputation back where it belongs," said his grandson, Geoffrey Hoffa, a physician assistant in Arizona. "Most people hear the name Jimmy Hoffa and have a negative image. They hear the Letterman jokes. It's a shame that people don't know more about what James R. Hoffa did and that he always stood up for the underdog."

    I wonder why the negative image keeps coming up when Hoffa is mentioned...

    Underdogs? They're called goonions for a reason, Geoffrey. It's also why Chicago/White House thuggery comes home to roost with the Johnson/Smoot MDP leadership infighting.

    Failure to heed basic economic logic unfolded in an physically violent way last week following Governor Rick Snyder signing a bill that does nothing more than provide workers with the freedom to decide whether or not to spend their hard-earned money on joining a union.

    Although I almost always mean our servicemen overseas, there is no doubt we have others to whom we will be indebted very soon.

    The folks who are in the midst of the Freedom to work battle, and occupying the AFP tents.  To the high power individuals who stepped up and put this over the top. To the folks who are in the midst of deliberations, and will have to endure the phone assaults, curses, and procedural tortures ad nauseum. And to our state police who will be expected to keep the peace with little or no help from Virg Bernero's personal security detail (the Lansing Police). To the folks at home giving strength to our besieged legislators. And last but not least, to the the workers who have endured the dignity robbing pain of supporting illicit and unacceptable political agendas of union leadership, simply for wishing to put food on their families' table.

    God bless you all tomorrow, and going forward.
