  • 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.

    Michael Moore on GM Demise: Filled with "Joy"

    Via Climate Depot and Gateway Pundit is this piece from serial liar Michael Moore on his own website: Goodbye, GM. Some of you will undoubtedly feel dumber for having read such drivel, but Moore hailing from Michigan and supposedly supporting union workers here in the state, is gleeful regarding GMs demise, and it is thus worth noting here.

    I write this on the morning of the end of the once-mighty General Motors. By high noon, the President of the United States will have made it official: General Motors, as we know it, has been totaled.

     As I sit here in GM's birthplace, Flint, Michigan, I am surrounded by friends and family who are filled with anxiety about what will happen to them and to the town.

    So here we are at the deathbed of General Motors. The company's body not yet cold, and I find myself filled with -- dare I say it -- joy.

    We are now in a different kind of war -- a war that we have conducted against the ecosystem and has been conducted by our very own corporate leaders. This current war has two fronts. One is headquartered in Detroit. The products built in the factories of GM, Ford and Chrysler are some of the greatest weapons of mass destruction responsible for global warming and the melting of our polar icecaps. The things we call "cars" may have been fun to drive, but they are like a million daggers into the heart of Mother Nature. To continue to build them would only lead to the ruin of our species and much of the planet.

    Tim Skubick in the Oakland Press: Social Conservatism Is Crack Cocaine Or Something

    That Tim. What a class act! Seems that Skubick has had quite a busy May bashing conservatives in any way he can. Just this month, he hit conservatives on not having a big enough tent (as if freedom and liberty aren't big enough to encompass everybody), blamed the Republican minority in this state for the budget problems (I kid you not!), and proposed raising taxes while providing flak cover to Granholm for cuts she never made. Like I said, Skubick has had a busy month. He's finishing off May with another hit piece focused on conservatives, but cloaked in non-partisanship: Despite their claims, no candidate can fix economy. In other words, what Tim is getting at here is that we as a state are screwed. It doesn't matter who's Governor, we're screwed.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    MI Property Tax Relief, the MEA, and Human Shields

    Yesterday, the Republican-controlled MI Senate fell short by 2 votes to push through a constitutional amendment, which would have to be voted on by Michigan residents in November, to prevent property taxes from increasing while home values are decreasing. Makes sense to me, but the Democrats sure don't like it. From the DetNews today: Mich. Senate comes up short in property tax relief vote. (The AP has a shorter report over at MLive)

    The vote was 23-11 in favor of the resolution with three Senate members absent. It takes approval by two-thirds of the members in each chamber of the Legislature to put a proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot, meaning 25 Senate votes would be needed to move the resolution over to the House for a vote.

    Matt Marsden, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, said there probably will be another vote on the resolution Wednesday.

    That's the good news. The bad news? It has to go through the MI House as well, controlled by Democrats. In the Senate, all 11 no votes came from Democrats. Why? Well, you can judge for yourselves, but here's something that comes up at the very end of the article:
