    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.

    Stupak is not principled.

    I've been noticing a lot lately that people are growing complacent on the Socialized Medicine Bill, and I thought we could use a little reminder of how unprincipled Bart Stupak is.

    Despite suggestions that Stupak is raising a fuss over abortion funding in the bill, his constituency is more heavily concerned with the bill itself.  Not that the First District isn't overwhelmingly Pro-life, it is, but Stupak is falsely emphasizing the importance of abortion wording in the bill.

    The First District is more concerned with the bill itself and it's constitutionality.

    It's called a red herring argument.

    Here is a youtube clip of Stupak equivocating on abortion.

    Stupak sees the writing on the wall

    Don't ever say I failed to praise a representative for doing the right thing.  Personally, I applaud Bart Stupak for helping to derail the outright insane health care boondoggle the Democrats in this congress is trying to forward to the President's desk.  The Ivory tower reports:
    "Michigan's congressional delegation appears split along partisan lines for any health-care vote -- with one notable exception: Rep. Bart Stupak.

    The Menominee Democrat says he can't support the proposal he's seen and not just because it lacks a provision he authored in a previous version to bar insurers receiving government subsidies from paying for abortions.

    He can't support an excise tax on higher-priced health care plans, even with the amount at which it kicks in moved higher, and he doesn't like that the effective date for some parts of the legislation has been moved as far off as 2018.

    "That's insane," Stupak said."

    I know he CANNOT be surprised..

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Stupak gets hit over the head with the Constitution

    I am in the 1st district where I am taxed without representation.  Stupak is my Congressional Representative.

    I found this podcast of the Frank Beckmann show, which is only accessible in these parts by computer streaming.

    I am a huge fan of Frank Beckmann, even though I don't get to listen to him very often.

    The podcast runs 17 minutes, you should listen to it, but here is my take of what was said;

    Gitmo North

    While we wait to hear the fate of the prison of Standish, MI, let's put together the facts. The facility is one of a few in the U.S.that may be used to house Guantanamo Bay detainees.

    Stupak, Congressman of the 1st District, is enthusiastic about the idea, and helped suggest his district as a home to the Gitmo prisoners.  He first suggested an Upper Peninsula prison, but settled on Standish, which was due to close November 1st, 2009, 150 miles from Dearborn.

    The town is divided on the issue, but efforts led by Dave Munson, and Kelly Kimball to oppose the transfer to the small prison town seem effective.  Munson  has testified in Washington D.C., and Kimball has been involved with protesting the move.

    Stupak's Folly.

    The amendment passed.

    Then the Bill passed.

    HR3962 Now goes to the Senate for Reconciliation, where the amendment will be removed before it is cleared, and the bill becomes law.

    Take it for what you will... But those who put this amendment in there knew the only way to make sure that abortions and illegals are NOT covered by such a bill is to make sure such a bill is not passed.

    Anyone who voted for this bill needs to go.

    Stupak DID vote for HR3962

    Stupak shows in DC, will vote for healthcare bill

        "We came to the point where we actually had an agreement tonight, but it fell apart," Stupak said.

    Stupak (D-MI) has been making it clear that he would not vote for the healthcare bill if it included federally funded abortion.  He and Rep. Ellsworth (D-IN) have introduced an amendment to the bill that:

        * Explicitly prevents all federal tax dollars from being used to provide abortions in the public option;
        * Prohibits any funds from the US Treasury from paying for abortion services in any of the plans purchased through the proposed Health Insurance Exchange-private or public;
        * Establishes clear, strict rules for separating public funds from the premiums of private individuals (ensuring that no public funds  are ever used to pay for an abortion in any health plan offered on the Health Insurance Exchange);
        * Guarantees every American participating in the Health Insurance Exchange will always have access to a pro-life insurance option;
        * Expands conscience protections to prevent the government from discriminating against pro-life health insurance plans.  (Taken from Ellsworth's website.)

    But, taking to the floor this afternoon, Stupak signaled that he would indeed vote for the bill, and continued to encourage his Democrat friends to support his amendment.

    The bottom line is, Stupak sees nothing wrong with the government takeover of healthcare.

    Hot Air's Ed Morrissey describes the disgusting endorsement by the American Bishops of this monstrosity of a bill.

    Stupak "whipping" on Abortion from afar, doesn't really mean it.

    Even though Stupak says he will lead 40 Democrats to vote against the healthcare bill, he won't be in DC to strip the provision from the bill, nor will he vote on it.

    As theblogprof points out, at a recent town hall in Cheboygan Stupak said:

        If everything I want [is] in the final bill, I like everything in the bill except you have public funding for abortion, and we had a chance to run our amendment and we lost. OK, I voted my conscience, stayed true to my principles, stayed true to the beliefs of this district, could I vote for healthcare? Yes I still could. -Bart Stupak

    After signaling for months that he has enough votes in Congress to kill the Health Care Bill, Bart Stupak may not even be in DC to vote.
