  • 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.

    Tag: Democrats behaving badly

    This isn't any other Monday

    Today isn't any other Monday.  Memorial Day these days tends to be a day for cookouts and camping but there's also a certain weight that makes the average day's snark seem mildly out of place.

    So we'll forgo it today.  

    That's right, I'm not going to pick on the Ivory Tower for their ridiculously disconnected suggestion that Michigan's real problem is that it taxes too little, all-but urging Lansing to raise taxes across the board by 4 percent in the middle of the toughest economy in the last ninety years.

    No sense in going into the Detroit News report that Detroit City Councilwoman and Democrat JoAnn Watson is now embroiled in a massive tax-cheating scandal that make's Governor Granholm's problems with the tax-man (and multiple tax liens) look light weight.

    Not even going to pick on the AP editor who somehow managed to headline an article with a sentence that starts "50 Cent" and ends "shot in Grand Rapids." And you know how much I love Fitty.

    Instead, I'm going to track down my dad and my brothers and tell them "thanks" for the time they spent serving our country and putting themselves on the line to protect the rest of us.  And I'm going to take some time to remember those who never came home.  Those guys are my heroes.  All of them.  They're yours too, whether you know it or not, so find a couple yourself in between the burgers and the dogs and say thanks!

    So Stabenow isn't the only Dem with ethics problems?

    Credit where credit is due, the Detroit Free Press is, lately, playing the role of a serious newspaper.  Oh, sure, their editorial page is still full of leftist tripe and many of their writers are still on Mark Brewer's "Holiday" card list, but the good old Ivory Tower is on a bit of a roll when it comes to equal opportunity criticism across parties.  

    The paper was the first to tell us about Senator Debbie Stabenow's little illegal-lobbyist-as-husband issue and while they don't include it this time, today they've published an op-ed claiming Democrats are "self-destructing over ethics."

    The Obama administration and the new Congress are quickly handing over to Republicans the same "culture of corruption" issue that Democrats used so effectively against the GOP before coming to power.

    Freshman Sen. Roland Burris, D-Ill., is only the latest embarrassment.

    Disappointingly, while they cover all of the tax-cheats, bribery suspects and subjects of legal investigations, there's no mention of Michigan's junior Senator.  But nobody's perfect.  Small steps.

    And the real scandal remains the way Michigan Democrats have handled the local economy.  Oh, but don't worry, Santa Claus is coming to town with a bag full of goodies for everybody.
