  • 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.

    You just cast the deciding vote for an A21 Premise.

    The UN Agenda 21 premise on full display last night. Principle 1

    "Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature. "
    Entitled. And by Right even in many other declarations.

    But lets not stop there!  Certainly Principle 5 is equally important. ('equal' being the operative word)

    All States and all people shall cooperate in the essential task of eradicating poverty as an indispensable requirement for sustainable development, in order to decrease the disparities in standards of living and better meet the needs of the majority of the people of the world.
    Step one? Eliminate insurance expense for the not-so-well-to-do.

    In the greatest redistribution scheme seen in our lifetime, you have just assisted in making sure the 'Right' to a healthy and productive life has new legs.  Republicans that voted for HB4714 have saved the state a few dollars over the next couple of years, but have embraced full blown global socialism in the process.  When Sebelius changes the rules with nary a peep from our weak kneed congress, illegals will ALSO have the right to our health care as well.  Former Governor and Democrat Jennifer Granholm started promoting this clunker in 2007, you just turned the key.

    Its a small world after all Tom.

    Election Results Subject To Constitutional Challenge

    Better check those election results.  - Reposted from GROW.TC

    It seems the state has been overlooking a fundamental restriction already in place when certifying election results for 5+ year millages and Bond requests.  Has there been a validation for electors established to determine if the right to vote on certain issues?

    Typically, those who show up for an election for a millage are unchallenged as to their ability to vote on such issues.  There are no instructions that stipulate the law, as established by the constitution REQUIRES a real stake in such issues printed on the election forms (ballots), and there are no alternate means to prevent abrogation of constitutional statute.  The Michigan Constitution is very clear:


    § 6 Voters on tax limit increases or bond issues.

    Sec. 6. Whenever any question is required to be submitted by a political subdivision to the electors for the increase of the ad valorem tax rate limitation imposed by Section 6 of Article IXfor a period of more than five years, or for the issue of bonds,  only electors in, and who have property assessed for any ad valorem taxes in, any part of the district or territory to be affected by the result of such election or electors who are the lawful husbands or wives of such persons shall be entitled to vote thereon. All electors in the district or territory affected may vote on all other questions.

    History: Const. 1963, Art. II, §6, Eff. Jan. 1, 1964.
    Former Constitution: See Const. 1908, Art. III, §4.

    Uh oh.

    A question we should be asking might be: "Is a passed millage request subject to legal challenge based on the inability to verify the legal status of the electors voting on such issues?" In other words, if you don't own property you cannot vote on a bond issue, so is your ballot restricted, or not?

    Stay tuned.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Contact High In Grand Circus Park, Anyone?

    Americas Irish Spring soap requiring slackers hit Detroit.

    The Occupy Detroit group -- inspired by the protests on Wall Street seeking social, political and economic change -- plans to meet at 4 p.m. today at the Spirit of Detroit statute on Woodward. The group will march to Grand Circus Park at 6 p.m. and then occupy the area with sit-ins, pickets and other forms of protest.

    Among those who plan to participate is Darlene Westfall, a Detroit Public Schools special education teacher.

    "I've been teaching for 30 years and I have been considering getting another job because I can't make ends meet," said Westfall, a Westland resident. "I am getting the same salary I got in the mid-'90s. Something is not right."

    Go figure, Darlene.  BTW, nice Detroit zip code.

    RIGHT ON Nolan - Occupy DETROIT

    Nolan Finley, the best snark of the weekend pulls the whole "occupy" routine all together with his Sunday editorial.

    I have seen SOME tea party types exclaim that these kids should be courted into the "tea" movement so "they won't be lost to the left."  I argued I could offer no support other than to "agree the fed should be ended." And THAT argument however, needs even more discussion.  My main point against saddling up with the occupy crowd, is frankly that they are little but a tool of this administration's allies.  They are too closely aligned with Marxist and redistributive desires to be even slightly cozy. These kids are already tools of the left, and would be no more inclined to listen to conservative principles than Jennifer Granholm or Saul Alinsky.

    Take your pick whom might be more radical.

    In the editorial, Nolan calls them out as the radicals more aligned with the "sympathetic" administration of Barack Obama who as a matter of course ignored the millions of Tea Party types arguing for a return to limited government.  He notes as "odd" the disparity in acknowledgment between those two groups.  And as 'peace loving' lib-tards go, the occupy crowd doe not disappoint. Nolan closes with:

    "State lawmakers in New York have received emails reportedly connected to Occupy Wall Street containing this cheery call to action: "It's time to kill the wealthy."

    I haven't taken a poll, but my hunch is more Americans relate to "cut the spending" than to "kill the wealthy."

    That's why I'm eager to see this freak show arrive in Detroit."

    It'll be informative for voters to compare the American protesters Barack Obama sympathizes with to those he despises.

    Eager, yes. As am I.

    I received this news from a friend of mine, who swears he got it from an ESPN-related site.  Frankly, I think the idea has some merit . . . not.
