  • 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.

    Assuming he casts his vote for increasing the welfare rolls. (Medicaid expansion)

    Shelby Township activist vows to make ObamaCare vote an issue in next Republican primary. Stating that the cost of government run healthcare will be destructive by hurting the poor and middle class the most, Kurt King announced his intention to primary Senator Jack Brandenburg should he vote to continue the governments war on healthcare freedom.  Like the others announced this morning, Kurt King believes he knows what the Republican base wants in Senator Brandenburg's district, and what they expect in a state senator. He says:

    "It is vital that we have a state senator that actively works to keep government out of the lives of our families and businesses and work equally hard to protect the liberties and health freedom of the districts constituents."
    Especially given the platform they are supposed to represent.
    "This will be a major issue for conservative primary voters in 2014.  Should Senator Brandenburg vote against our health freedoms, I am prepared to launch a primary challenge.  I believe that conservative voters will reject a sitting senator who supports team Obama by voting to take away our liberties and will rally around a fresh approach that centers on lowering taxes, individual liberty, and reducing the size and scope of government intrusion into our lives."
    And like the two other announcements this morning, King makes it clear there is a line in the sand.
    If there was ever any doubt that Senator Brandenburg was out of touch with the current Republican primary voters, this vote on expanding Medicaid will tell us for sure."

    Lets find out, shall we?

    Speaking of the 11th State Senate Race

    Sometimes folks embellish a little when talking about accomplishments.  Perhaps to "color" the experience they wish to share, or to keep interest of those who are falling asleep during the story of their "great mountain lion hunt" on Mackinac Island.

    There are times and places appropriate for stretching of the truth..  Not LYING mind you.. but simply "seasoning".

    One of these should not be when seeking a position of trust.  Little white lies, indefensible inaccuracies, half truths.. not so good when looking to be elected.

    It seems we will always see more of those aberrations from decency however. No matter which election, or political party that is involved, some people either conveniently forget their REAL accomplishments, or they hope the public will.
