  • 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

    The Mechanics of Takeover

    As I published in June of last year, what the combined grassroots effort accomplished at the May Convention was impressive, but only the first battle of a much longer campaign that will be necessary in order to purge the Republican Party in Michigan (at every level) of the blueblood elites that have taken over the party establishment.  At the time, I mentioned that the reach of the broom needed to extend all the way down to the county executive committees where necessary, and I provided at strategic overview of what would need to be done to effect the end goal.  At this point, regardless of how it worked out, phases 1 through 4 are complete.  Since we only have four weeks to work with, we need to stay tightly focused on phase 5 of the plan, and we must use our time wisely.

    So with that in mind, grab a pot of coffee and a snack plate, and let's go below the fold.

    How To Replace Party Leadership

    I have more than once on this site cited a paraphrase of John F. Kennedy's warning:  Those who insist on making a peaceful takeover impossible will ultimately make a takeover by revolt inevitable, and perhaps even necessary.  Since we cannot seem to trust the blueblood elites in the establishment to get the message, let's go below the fold and discuss an idea to "grease the skids" for their removal from power.

    Mentioning the term "abusive relationship" will often conjure up any number of images in the listener's mind, from a physically violent spouse or parent to a tyrannical employer or a manipulative neighbor.  But no matter the scenario or the type of relationship (domestic, intimate, personal, professional, or social), there is one thing that all truly abusive relationships have in common . . . exactly one common thread running through all abusive relationships that is the sole defining characteristic demarcating what does and doesn't make any relationship abusive.  And until the person on the receiving end of the abuse gets this, there is no chance of breaking the cycle.
