  • 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

    Seriously, where do they find the opprobrious milksop like Anuzis, who are titled as leaders of the MI-GOP?  Amazing...

    Mitt Romney for President!

    As we approach the first in the nation caucuses and primaries in January, I wanted to share why I have decided to publicly endorse and actively work in support of Mitt Romney's effort to seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States. There are four primary reasons for my support:

    National Popular Vote.  RomneyBamacare.  As long as it has an R after its name.

    Yup.  That's Saul .. folks.

    Facts Are Stubborn Things

    But which facts?

    In an attempt to lure lawmakers into thinking popular opinion is on the side of committing Michigan to a boondoggle project that is the NITC, the administration is now pushing polls that seem to show consensus. At least once "they know the facts." A couple of weeks ago from the Ivory Tower:

    "Two-thirds of Michigan voters support Gov. Rick Snyder's plan for a new bridge to Windsor once they understand Canada's role in helping to pay for the span, new poll results showed Monday.

    Conducted for the corporate leadership group Business Leaders for Michigan, the poll of 600 likely voters showed that 62% favored building the public bridge and 33% opposed it. "

    Business Leaders for Michigan, which portrays itself as a competitive business group is comprised of such conservative giants as Mary Sue Coleman, Timothy Collins, John Bryant, and other rent seeking, rely on government for their success types. I mean Gerard Anderson of DTE? Jon Barfield? Daniel Akerson of GM? And those are just a few on the list.

    Folks, I present to you the greatest collection of crony capitalists this side of Wall Street. And they are all in our back yard. In this writer's view, these folks wouldn't understand a free market business model if it hit them on the head with a hard bound copy of Atlas Shrugged. The few Republicans you may find in the overall group are names added to give credibility to the rest and still does not guarantee their business models are not reliant on government handouts, intervention or "collaboration." (Read: taking from us to make their model work)

    And these lefty supporting, steal from the taxpayer types want the bridge and are pushing heavily for it.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    And Because He Showed Up Here

    The NPV troll brought me to a site that explained more succinctly the dangers of the NVP.  The canard of NVP being non partisan is absurd at its base.

    The Progressive left is determined to transform our republic into a unitary state with one political party--theirs. What would that look like? Perhaps something like the social democracies of Western Europe or maybe democratic republics of the former Eastern Europe Soviet bloc. With policy being guided by radical Marxists in the current White House, the goal could be a full-blown communist utopia. Maybe they don't even know where they're headed.

    The point is, we do. The Founders understood the dangers of autocratic government. They knew, because they studied Aristotle, that the people could be swayed by pleasing orators and fair-sounding lies. The fact is, We the People also need to be checked against the passions of the moment, against the false promises of the snake-oil salesman.

    Those republicans who have fallen for the fairness trap need to brush up on checks and balances.

    Oh yeah.. Our troll Mr "Kohler" should recognize his modus operandi :

    "I received five very long rebuttals from the same untraceable ... They arrived 1 minute apart. Overwhelm the opposition: typical leftist tactic."

    Dude.  Way too easy to spot.  I had you in 10 minutes. (actually 3, but I type slow)

    Be sure to read this:

    GOP Gives NPV A Big Thumbs Down.

    Kudos to NRC chair Reince Priebus for nipping this in the bud.

    With so many things going on, its good to have someone watching our backs on things like this.
