  • 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

    The 2013 Update of the Freedom Index is out.

    The Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. The percentages below are cumulative scores are based on key votes from 1999 through 2013. Click on a senator's or representative's name to get a detailed breakdown of his or her voting record.


    Sen. Carl Levin - 13%
    Sen. Debbie Stabenow - 18%
    Dist.1: Dan Benishek - 70%
    Dist.2: Bill Huizenga - 76%
    Dist.3: Justin Amash - 93%
    Dist.4: Dave Camp - 53%
    Dist.5: Daniel Kildee - 30%
    Dist.6: Fred Upton - 48%
    Dist.7: Tim Walberg - 71%
    Dist.8: Mike Rogers - 51%
    Dist.9: Sander Levin - 16%
    Dist.10: Candice Miller - 51%
    Dist.11: Kerry Bentivolio - 80%
    Dist.12: John Dingell - 21%
    Dist.13: John Conyers - 28%
    Dist.14: Gary Peters - 15%

    48? 51? 53 percent constitutionally competent?  We KNOW the Democrats have abandoned any allegiance to the constitution, but its truly disturbing how 'our side' has characters that would so willingly disregard the TRUE rule of law.

    Sen. Stabenow Calls For Probe Of Solyndra

    Tags: Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Obama Motors, $20000 U.S. subsidy per Volt sold in China, $500M vanished at Solyndra?, Destoy you from within (all tags)

    Whooops!  Did I write Solyndra?  I meant U.S. taxpayer subsidized Chevy Volt's for the ChiComs.  Silly me...

    Prompting the concern is the Volt's debut in China next year, and news that Chinese officials are refusing to let the Volt qualify for incentives worth nearly $20,000 per car unless GM shares some of the vehicle's key technologies.

    GM has so far attempted to deflect concern over the subsidy issue, saying it believes it will work through a solution with the Chinese government.

    Actually, with Volt sales figures... this may be a helluva lot cheaper on us taxpayers than building the ChiComs a NAFTA Bridge.

    You sure can tell we're approaching an election year.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Mondays Divertere: Keynesian Twilight Zone

    Dingell, Levin, Stabenow support Obama jobs package ...I'm shocked.

    "I hope that the president's speech focuses Congress' attention back where it should be, on creating jobs.  The president offered his ideas, now Members of Congress need to offer theirs, and then it's time to come together and get something done.  I'm going to keep urging Congress to pass measures particularly important to Michigan's economy, like growing jobs in advanced batteries, agriculture and small businesses." - WTF!

    If They Only Worked That Hard To Cut Spending...

    Ya, I'm talking about Democrats.

    Stabenow talked to farm owner Len Gustafson about how, with the help of funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Gustafson's Farm has become a huge success.  The owners say that over the past five years, they've managed to grow their farm from about 10 cows to nearly 200 cows, and they now produce 80,000 pounds of beef a year.

    Hmmm, that's roughly growing the herd by two head per month.  Nothing really all that amazing about that, but, congrats to Mr. Gustafson all the same.

    Government funding covered 60 percent of an $80,000 project to improve their beef operation with fencing and a new water system.  Len says the more cows drink, the more they eat, and heavier cows make better meat.

    Holy crap!  We taxpayers are subsidizing over half of this private businesses improvements?  Ahhh, so there's why Sen. Stabenow, Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee is in the U.P.  It's a campaign photo-op.

    Or is it?
