  • 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.

    Sammie Speech

    This will likely be the last self promotion I will have on this, but there will be additional Sammie videos posted in the multimedia section as time allows.

    I was a finalist, then won, and split the prize with Chetly Zarko for the watchdog award at the Sam Adams Alliance event as mentioned previously.

    The other two finalists Rob Port of Minot ND, and Sherry Loar of Petoskey were both worthy of this award, so its with a greater sense of humility that I accepted it.  Its really a big deal. Rob runs a watchdog type blog which is like a combination of the Blog Prof's site, and RightMichigan.com.  Sherry took the lead as the plaintiff fighting the forced unionization scam, who sacrificed both monetarily and psychologically in dealing with the collusive measure brought about by the last administration and their union cronies.

    I was in very respect worthy company.

    I should note that I am not the greatest speaker, and I do not travel with dueling teleprompters. So this award might well be seen as the greatest speaking fee I should ever expect to see.  I guess that is OK, as long as I can keep the pen to the page (so to speak) to entertain and inform.

    The video with Eric Rothoff and myself during the acceptance is below the line.

    MI CPAC 2011

    A great day half through in Holt, for the Michigan Conservative Political Action Conference.

    Multiple speakers from the Reagan administration, and panels discussing legislative action, RTW laws Judicial accountability and transparency in government.  Too much for one conference alone.  Well worth the travel, a day spent, and the small admission that bought a great deal of camaraderie, and conservative fellowship.

    I have video I will be posting tomorrow if possible with some great clips that drive home the points we talk about here on a daily basis.

    as I type this, Justice Markman is discussing Ronald Reagan.  Good stuff.

    Keep an eye out, Ill have more up as soon as I can.

    A year like no other

    I gotta tell you all, its been a crazy year.

    Personally, my family and I have suffered a few losses, and that expanded into the conservative community as well with bloggers/activists David Hinz, and Chetly Zarko.  Well, David passed in 2009, but with the new reality we own, things tend to blend, and pretty much everything from February 2009 falls into what I consider the last year.

    All of the efforts that truly started in 2009 with the Santelli rant igniting the movement of the last 200 years started paying dividends this year.  Those of us who knew its effects would be incredible indeed, kept at it, writing about the strength of an awakened consciousness that the MSM pooh poohed.  The insistence of our 'fringe' and inconsequential movement, failing and as mistaken as the reports of Mark Twain's death so many years ago.  

    The news of THIS movement's demise was indeed greatly exaggerated.

    However there were moments of doubt.
