  • 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

    Privatizing Profits and Socializing Losses

    Remember the famous Republican sales spiel for TARP to abandon the Free Market to save it?  I do.  Hell, that Republican even said , "I'd approve TARP again."  I also remember the Michigan Republican that said, "if we don't pass something to help the financial institution, it collapses, the DOW loses another 3,000 points, it needed to be done."  Well, George W, Pete Hoekstra, along with a gaggle of other Pale Pastels... thank you for opening another Pandoras Box of reckless spending as those who parade around the Big Tent as alleged "conservatives" always do.

    The state is poised to have $100 million in federal funds freed up to demolish vacant homes in Detroit, Pontiac, Flint, Grand Rapids and Saginaw.

    An announcement could come as soon as today that federal dollars previously allocated for mortgage relief have been approved to target neighborhoods riddled with abandoned and burned-out houses, according to four sources with knowledge of the situation.

    The federal dollars come from an aid program that is part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program launched in 2010 to help unemployed homeowners stay in their houses and help families with underwater mortgages -- who owe more than their homes are worth.

    The $7.6 billion program, known as the Hardest Hit Fund, targeted 18 states including Michigan, plus the District of Columbia, reeling from the housing crisis and economic downturn.


    See that?  Poof!  In only two years, TARP transcends into the Hardest Hit Fund.  Pure Magic!  Take a look at the map, it's predominately a Blue State bailout scheme for failed Progressive Utopias.  To paraphrase the late Baroness Thatcher - The problem with Socialism is that the Democrats will never run out of other peoples money in America, as long as there are Progressives in the Republican Party finding ways to steal it for them.

    And, the MI-GOP in Lansing, along with the RNC in D.C., wonders why they've been going down in electoral flames ever since they dropped the ball with the 2010 Sea of TEA Partying Red demanding Constitutionally limited, fiscal responsible, sound government.

    For record, the only Michigan Reps. who honorably voted NO on TARP were: Conyers, McCotter, Miller, Rogers, Stupak, and Walberg.  I thank you for that vote, again.  And, the usual cast of Senate RINO's confirmed a Geithner Treasury Department that dreams up Progressive aid programs like the Hardest Hit Fund.  Way to go, dunderheads.

    Michigan Retailers Association Demands Taxation On Michiganders

    I've heard of dumb before, but this takes the cake, via mLive

    The Michigan Retailers Association is urging the state to send Amazon.com a bill for uncollected sales tax.

    The trade association has been pushing for state legislation to make Internet retailers collect Michigan's 6 percent sales tax to make it a level playing field between online and brick-and-mortar retailers.

    States can't require out-of-state businesses to collect their sales taxes unless they have a "nexus," or physical presence there.

    Amazon has a wholly owned subsidiary, Brilliance Audio, that is located in Grand Haven. The company was acquired in 2007 and produces audio books.

    Rest here

    Frilliant!  Don't work to lower taxes for yourself, raise them on others.  Keep it up jackasses, and you'll have everybody avoiding Michigan like the money grubbing plague to reside and do business in that it is.

    Speaking for myself, I've taken note of those on the MBA Board and the businesses they are tied to because they won't be seeing my money in the future.

    OABTW - MRA, chair Barb Stein, I suppose you will be closing down the '09 created Rockford Brownfield Redevelopment Authority?  Oink, oink .. brick-and-mortar, baby.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Money: It Really Does Grow On Trees

    Poor Detoilet, from bankrupt and can't meet payroll yesterday, to we be razin' today.

    via The Detroit News

    Mayor Dave Bing this morning announced a plan to demolish 1,500 dangerous structures within the city in the next 90 days.

    The Summer 2012 Demolition Plan is part of Bing's blight elimination and neighborhood stabilization initiative, his office announced in a statement this morning. The plan is to be carried out in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice Youth Violence Prevention Initiative and the Safe Routes to School campaign.

    Rest here

    Lemme see... why that sorta sounds like the Nerd's DRIC bridge.  No Michigan tax dollars are used by Bing!  Now, if Bing really gave a rip about adding to the crushing Federal Debt, he'd skip the DC trough (I know, I'm dreaming), and delay till fall 'cause with Bing also announcing he's axing one-fifth of his firefighters that would bypass the timing concern as the razing would be taken care of all for free on Devil's Night.

    Doh!  Wait a minute .. Bing's gaming the system with Federal Debt dollars to recall those firefighters too.
