    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.

    Fact Check Proves; Joe Was Right! Obama "Lied"

    Hello All,

    Let me be very clear, I do not in any way support Joe Wilson's outburst.  We are not British!  We do not yell out of emotion at the leader of our nation during a session of Congress, PERIOD!

    However, his point, however ill timed, was correct.  Both the All Barack Channel (ABC), and the Citizens for Barack Station (CBS) have put the Facts on the table. From the fact check desk of Jake Tapper:"Illegal Immigrants and Health Care Reform", and "Does Joe Wilson Have A Case On Health Care, Illegal Aliens?"

    Both assert that although there is nothing in the health bill giving anything to illiegals, it also does not restrict what they already have.  It also provides more funds to Medicaid, which pays for illiegals to go to the emergency room.   Not to mention some illiegals will be taxed by the "Non-Insurance Fee".

    Point and Blank, illiegals should not be allowed to conduct any business within the US.  They should not be allowed to own a house, rent an apartment, open a bank account, get a license, or even buy a McDonalds hamburger.  I am not against them receiving emergency medical care (For Real Emergencies Only, as par the 5th & 14th Amendments of the Constitution), but once they are well enough they should be deported.  

    It is not fair to U.S. citizens and especially Legal Immigrants as well as those attempting to both enter this country legally and become U.S. citizens that almost nothing is being done to solve the illiegals issue.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Health Care Bill More Bad News for Michigan

    By Congressman Mike Rogers, Section News
    Posted on Thu Sep 03, 2009 at 12:31:03 PM EST

    Years of recession and the bankruptcy of two of its largest employers - General Motors and Chrysler -have left Michigan's economy reeling.

    With 15 percent of workers off the job, we suffer from the highest unemployment in the nation and are among national leaders in such dubious statistics as outbound moving vans and home foreclosures.

    This has led to state budget holes in Lansing year after year.  Tough choices have been made by the Legislature and Governor.  Services have been cut, taxes have been raised, and now some Michigan leaders are even talking about bringing terrorist prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to Michigan to help fill the current massive budget hole of $2.8 billion.

    Michigan cannot afford another economic hit.

    That is, in part, why the U.S. House Democrats' version of health care reform currently moving its way through Congress is so bad for Michigan.  Buried in the 1,000-plus page measure is a provision to dramatically expand Medicaid, adding 11 million Americans to its rolls.  

    To fund the huge expansion, House Democrats propose that states assume an additional $35 billion liability over the next 10 years, including a $4.8 billion hit to Michigan's budget. Tennessee's Democrat Governor Phil Bredesen called this provision "the mother of all unfunded mandates."

    The Democrats' measure also hurts Michigan's ability to run its own Medicaid program by introducing new mandates on patient care and by preempting state authority to manage Medicaid eligibility and benefits.

    This massive, one-size-fits-all federal expansion into health care would severely harm Michigan's ability to address its own health care needs. Governor Granholm has worked to protect state employee health benefits, but the U.S. House bill would cede authority to the newly-created federal Health Choices Commissioner to dictate plan terms.  Tax penalties or drastic cuts in Michigan's federal grants could be used to force compliance.

    Granholm has stated her support for the creation of a government-run insurance plan to "compete" with private insurance plans. The House bill allows a state to create its own government-run insurance plan but then grants the Health Choices Commissioner located in some anonymous office somewhere in Washington, D.C. the authority to terminate that plan at anytime for any reason.

    On top of all that, this legislation hurts seniors by cutting more than $400 billion from critical Medicare benefits, including home health services, nursing home and hospice care, and it kicks 300,000 Michigan seniors off their Medicare Advantage plans.  The bill effectively eliminates Health Savings Accounts, which 187,000 Michiganders use to cover their health care needs.

    There are better ways to make sure all Americans have the health care they need, and it can be done without government-run health care and without ratcheting up the burden on the budgets of Michigan and other economically challenged states. Reforms should end discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, create small business health plans and high-risk pools, expand health savings accounts, and crack down on frivolous lawsuits that run doctors out of business.

    Michigan's governor should put Michigan's interests first and work for bipartisan common-sense health reforms that do not further jeopardize our state's dire economic situation.  Although that may not be popular with those who want the federal government to run health care, Michigan families will be much better off for it.

    - Mike Rogers

    Peters Town Hall Short on Answers, Long on Rhetoric

    After hearing about all of the ruckus that was taking place all across the country at town hall meetings, I read that Congressman Gary Peters was hosting one himself down in West Bloomfield and decided to head down to check it out for myself.

    A little over an hour later, after weaving in and out of orange barrels and cones from federal stimulus projects, I arrived in West Bloomfield, where I watched would-be town hall attendees form a line that was reminiscent of the last time I waited to hop on Cedar Point's Millennium Force.  But only 800 of the literally thousands that showed up would be allowed to participate in what both local Republicans and Democrats promised would be another rancorous battle in the war over health care reform (read more).

    "Spread the Wealth" Hidden in Health-Care Reform

    Hello All,

    Below you will find a letter that I wrote and sent to all my Congressional Representatives concerning the President's Health-Care bill.  Click the video link  "Blue Dog Dems fight Spread the Wealth" and see for yourself what the real purpose of the Health-Care bill is.   Not to mention they are trying to add mandated Abortion into the bill.  I encourage all to do as I did, write your Reps and tell them you do not support this extra Tax the rich to pay for the Governments massive spending Bill.  

    Follow the Action Link "Write your Congress -Action Center-" where you can add your Zip and in just two minutes send an email to all your Reps at once.  You can cut and paste my letter or change it if you wish.  You can also write your own letter or cut and paste one that is on the site, "no writing required".
