  • 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.

    Who Needs Anecdotal?

    Families destroyed, future prosperity hampered, and setting up a whole new set of government dependent souls.

    God help us from benevolent bureaucracies!

    "HOLLAND, Mich. -- Several weeks after a city zoning officer shut down his hot dog business, 13-year-old Nathan Duszynski and his parents are homeless.

    The family was hoping Nathan's hot dog cart could help them through a difficult time.  Nathan's mother, Lynette Johnson, suffers from epilepsy and his stepfather, Doug Johnson, has multiple sclerosis. Their illnesses have restricted them from finding permanent, full-time work.


    Nathan wanted to help out his family by selling hot dogs from a cart he bought with money he saved.


    The city of Holland, however, shut down the business 10 minutes after it opened, informing Nathan it was in the city's commercial district where food carts not connected to downtown brick-and-motor restaurants are prohibited. The Mackinac Center's coverage of the issue has drawn national attention."

    Unintended or otherwise, it is considered normal nowadays for government to hamper the opportunities of some, to favor others. A pretend scenario is certainly unnecessary for this family.

    Airplanes Elections and Indiscriminate Expenses

    Obama was in Holland yesterday. He flew in on Air force One for a speech or two, snubbed a couple of Michigan dignitaries who were not in his party, and started working on his base for 2012.  Well, at least Bill Huizenga didn't get any love from the man he helped with the debt ceiling increase:
    "The freshman congressman, who did vote for the debt ceiling deal despite Tea Party criticism, said he contacted the White House about attending the event celebrating the company's advance battery manufacturing success, but an invite never came.

    "This is over the top. How does he think he can get away with this?" Huizenga told MIRS."

    What? Hurt feelings?

    The political season for Obama has just begun, and his propensity to use public funds to enhance his personal greatness is a phenomenon only imagined in our founder's worst nightmares. Congressman Huizenga should know better than to put any trust in the hyena of hyenas, Barack Obama.  This trip was simply about Obama, not the area, its manufacturing, its workers, or any cooperation with a local Michigan government.

    Obama's disregard for the expense on his behalf says so. If only based on the flight time of Colonel "Jeeves" his personal jet driver.

    Yannow, it really never ceases to amaze me that when one is presented with information available by sources responsible to its respective body be it us citizens or a membership, it still just isn't good enough or flawed.

    Today that amazement reared its ugly head again.

    But, before going forward...

    Be careful of your thoughts; they may become words at any moment.  ~Ira Gassen
