  • 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

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    Not Just For Baseball - Capiche?

    I wrote about coercion the other day.  In fact, I argue the contracts that are a part of the public employee arrangement are the result of coercive measures; that they are in fact "coercive contracts." That they are as such, non binding.

    And covering only the contracts themselves, one could argue the illegitimate role that labor provides, when discussing compensation and bargaining with public entities.  The monopolistic nature of Michigan's public sector employment pool negates any entrepreneurial efforts towards excellence that might develop, and the state's tax payers are hardly served in any constructive or positive manner.  In other words, a free market for those positions residing outside the labor influenced sphere would create great opportunities.

    Perhaps that is what labor fears.  So much so, that it has now returned to its base form of thinly veiled threats of violence and extortive measures on the private entities that actually pay the bills.  People OUTSIDE government now facing the very same violent animal attitude of organized labor types. Not yet here, but very, very, close.

    It seems for the time being folks, we have ALL become Wisconsinites.

    A Bad Light?

    Suffering a case of "too much to write about" block..  Really, I have no shortage of opinion on any number of topics, but just cannot narrow my focus for more than 2 minutes..

    In the mean time, I felt compelled to mention there is a premier on ABC tonight of a new COP SHOW!!  Woot! Yup.. On schedule, the every 8 year phenomenon continues to boggle the imagination.

    This time, they are in the 2nd most dangerous city in the world, kicking azz, and taking names.  Yup and as incredible as it might seem, there is a controversy surrounding the use of a city second only to Baghdad in its danger quotient for the new crime drama:

    DETROIT -- Detroit 187 premiers Tuesday on ABC 29&8 but the show doesn't come without some controversy.

    Some residents in Detroit think the shows title 187, which is police code for homicide, paints a negative light on Detroit.

    Paint?  Who needs paint?

    My guess is the film crews have only been "skirting" the real Detroit.  Nothing portrayed in this fictional series could be as bad as the naked reality of the "forgotten" and ignored places seen safely only through mediums like Google earth.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Not getting it.

    when did our sitting US senators forget what is of critical consequence to Michigan?  At what point did the fat globules break loose and stop the flow of blood to the brains of Senators Levin and Stabenow?  Do they understand, or even CARE about the business and manufacturing communities in Michigan who use electricity as a part of the creation of goods?

    If you though it was bad already be prepared for "bad" multiplied by ___<--Insert large number here.

    Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow had an opportunity to stand up for Michigan, and its economic interests, and the jobs of its residents.  They had a chance in a vote held yesterday to say to the EPA, that CO2 is NOT a pollutant to be regulated by the agency, particularly in light of the climate-gate scandal that demonstrates the science was never truly settled. They had a chance to demonstrate they actually are paying attention to those developments showing the climate change "science" to be a fabrication of grant seeking opportunists willing to exchange their souls for a few coins.

    Let me get your imaginations started on what MUST happen now that the regulatory beast of the federal government has been given new freshly sharpened teeth.
