  • 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.

    Uh-oh .. There Goes The Eurotrash Tieless Attire

    I be lovin' the 'ol rumor mill today.  Oh, what fun... via detroitnews.com

    Could Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder be a vice presidential pick?

    That's what one Republican political consultant is betting on in an opinion piece published Thursday naming Michigan's "one tough nerd" freshman governor as Mitt Romney's running mate.

    "My bet is he's Romney's man for vice president," Chris Ingram, a Tampa Republican political consultant, wrote in an opinion piece for Tampa Bay Online.

    Snyder's office said the speculation is a sign people are taking notice of changes in Michigan and focused on Michigan's progress.

    Ya right, don't bust your arm patting yourself on the back, Rick.  5th worst.

    "There is that perception that Michigan still has a ways to go," said J.P. Donlon, editor in chief at Chief Executive Group. "We haven't received much in the way of feedback that evidences the changes are yet significant for them at this stage."

    Donlon said CEOs criticized Michigan for a strict regulatory environment that issues penalties instead of working with and helping businesses.

    Actually, Snyder makes a lot of sense for Romney, especially when the Obamneycare debates start in the general election.  Snyder is the only governor pushing hard for the Health Insurance Exchange.  That should be a huge clue that the GOP heir apparent will merely tinker with retooling the ACA.  Wanna bet $10,000 on that?  LOL

    Now, the ultimate upside for Conservatives in Michigan?  It gets governor milquetoast the hell out of our hair so Right-To-Work can be pursued without Snyder's obstruction.  Calley expanded government with pushing his pet insurance coverage mandate through, so it'd clearly be to his advantage to work towards the R-T-W goal.  If not, then Calley has made himself an easy primary target in 2014.  The possible Win-Win outcomes presented are limitless.

    Hmmm, now I wonder if there's any way to get Mitt to take Richardville with him too...
