  • 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.

    150 years ago, our president, and the flag bearer of a rogue party, (founded "under the oaks" nearly 10 years earlier in Michigan) gave his most notable speech.

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a  new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any  nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great  battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a  final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might  live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not  hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the  unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It  is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us --  that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for  which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God,shall  have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people,  for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    Abraham Lincoln - November 19, 1863

    Emphasis mine.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Don't feel too bad, pain is a part of the treatment.

    The patient will likely experience nausea, loss of bowel control, and episodes of depression, and screaming fits should not disconcert concerned caregivers.  Exhaustion should be expected as well, but remember the process is supposed to be harder on the cancerous cells, so its best not to give up before it is done. Another reason to continue the treatment is to prevent a re-occurrence of the disease before it is completely eliminated.

    True, some forms of cancer can be fatal.  

    The bad cells burrow away in areas sometimes hard to identify. And sometimes seemingly good cells turn bad in an instant. And unfortunately, we've seen it recently.  New cancer cells appeared before our very eyes, from as far away as the UP in fact.  The threshold has been met and now many think the patient is terminal, but perhaps its possible our treatment will have an effect to buy some time.  It may even help if we can get the patient to stop smoking. Perhaps even if we can re-instill the will to live.

    We're not ready to give up yet.

    However, there is the possibility that the bad cells will cling on long enough that the treatment hurts many of the good cells. We are sorry in advance for what needs to be done.

    Its an inexact science unfortunately, and there can be a cost to heal properly, but we'll do our damnedest to see it through to the end.

    The Times- They Are A Changin

    Change is a constant in nature, as well as in mankind's societies.

    Our country was founded on the concept of self-government, with the understanding that government was needed for a limited number of roles that all revolve around protecting our God-given rights to Life, Liberty- or the right to be left alone, and the protection of our personal property from all others, including government.

    The American version of this form of life on earth has proven to be the most popular and beneficial to ever bless mankind. We also learned over the years that the most effective way to communicate our needs and desires was through elected representatives who would join forces with other representatives of like mind and use their combined power of popular support to promote what is in the best interests of the most people.

    Somewhere along the line, this concept got lost, and priorities changed for too many in elected positions.

    Blake Edmonds Prevails

    Rightmichigan.com is proud to announce the victory of Blake Edmonds for the position of Republican youth chair.

    During caucuses, the young Mr Edmonds reminded us of why we supported him in the first place.  A well spoken ambassador to our youth trapped in the now more liberal college campuses will be necessary, and there is no question he will put together a program that reaches them before they are too far indoctrinated by the freakshows the Democrats have been allowed to install in our institutions of higher learning..

    well done Blake!

    This particular list is a reason that Bobby Schostak ought not be the Republican Party chair for Michigan.


    OH yeah.. Bi-partisanship.  Enough to go on by itself, but lets add to it with

    Democrat LAURENCE DEITCH received $2000 from each of the Schostak Brothers in his re-election for regent.

    In 2008.  Why?

    One thing that has become clear in the last couple of years is that pandering to the other side brings nothing but misery. Seeding the other side with financial resources makes it harder for OUR guys to succeed.  Does it ultimately matter if the chair is a good fundraiser, if our donations go to fight the beast he has fed in the past?

    Consider this merely a start of a fact based critique.

    Expect more.

    Received this today:
    Dear Michigan Republicans,

    As we approach this weekend's Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference on historic Mackinac Island, I am writing to ask for your support and endorsement of Mitt Romney.

    The Mackinac Conference is the traditional kick-off for Michigan's Republican political campaigns. I am thrilled that our team will be able to kick off the Michigan Romney campaign by welcoming Governor and Mrs. Ann Romney back home to Michigan for the conference!  

    For release this weekend, we are assembling a list of supporters. I invite you to join Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, House Speaker Jase Bolger, Republican National Committeeman Saul Anuzis and Republican National Committeewoman Holly Hughes, myself and many other grassroots leaders from across the state in publicly endorsing Mitt!

    I prefer a real primary where substance wins over who is next in line.  The "sender" being Bill Schuette, undoubtedly aware his name is being used, has likely not seen even seen this.

    Nice machine you have there MI GOP.  You should note there are a number of better choices available for our selection in 2012. A number of folks who ACTUALLY have principles.

    Bill, I know you watch this from time to time.  I would back off your endorsement, or just give in to the Obamacare mandate like a good party loyalist.  Hell, Snyder doesn't even have your back.  Mitt will likely do nothing to remove it from the books.  Modify? Yeah probably, but remove? Nah.  Ain't gonna happen.

    The party is not over, but it will be different.  Think about that MR gover.. err Attorney General.

    Grassroots Call For Saul Anuzis As RNC Chair

    By jenkuz, Section News
    Posted on Mon Dec 13, 2010 at 10:06:37 AM EST
    Tags: Ann Wagner, conservatism, Gentry Collins, grassroots, Maria Cino, Michael Steele, Michigan GOP, Mike Duncan, Reince Priebus, Republican Party, RNC chair, Saul Anuzis, social media (all tags)


    I don't pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.

    Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening.  Others who have formally announced according to Anuzis' blog are "former Bush Administration Official Maria Cino, RNC Legal Counsel & WI Chair Reince Priebus,"and," Ambassador Ann Wagner."  Still, it is not clear if former Republican National Committee political director Gentry Collins is in yet, Collins left the RNC in a huff decrying Steele's ineptness at fundraising and his mismanagement of funds, nor is it clear if former RNC chair Mike Duncan is in.  Regardless, the field is crowded, and may get more so.

    Putting aside all the politicking, my purpose for encouraging endorsements for Saul Anuzis is from a purely grassroots level.
