  • 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.

    Happen to notice in the Downriver fish wrap that one of the Dearbornistan barking Moonbats that prides himself dabbling in the press has now focused his Wayne County melodrama Center-Left rhetoric on two of RightMichigan.com's Wall Of Shame members, Rep. Camp, and Rep. Upton.

    You two western Michi­gan Republican congressmen have a unique opportunity to show the country and the world that Michigan produces the best in political leaders who can rise above petty partisanship and put the real interests of the American people first.

    They already tried that voting like a Democrat thing.  Look to the wall on the left.

    Your joint appointment to the "super committee" created as part of the debt-ceiling deficit-reduction package passed into law Aug. 2 gives you the power to fundamentally change the financial direction of our nation. You both can vote for revenue increases and limits on Medicare and Social Security with virtual impunity.

    You both know as longtime incumbents from strongly Republican-leaning districts (made even more Republican due to the 2010 census state legislative redistricting plan), there is no way that you can lose your seat in November 2012.

    Didja catch that?  What this moonbat fails to tell the good Reps on the western side of the state is that those districts are indeed more Republican now, and that their Centrist namby-pamby Pale Pastel could end up stunting their political careers.

    Yes, you both signed the Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform, pledge to not raise taxes. So what? Both of you are assuredly protected from any election reprisal if you agree to some increase in taxes, if only from tax reform, in return for a much larger decrease in spending.

    Care to really try that "raising taxes" on your constituency, Reps Camp and Upton?  {sniff .. sniff}  I smell a Primary challenge in the making.

    Slither back under the rock you came from in Dearbornistan, Morris.  Nobody in this state is interested in your bipartisan Democratic Party failings anymore.

    A little challenge, anyone?

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    "Centrist" Republicans Target Selves

    In a time when conservatism has regained the eye and can be found more in the heart of America, those who refuse to stand for anything, seem to expend more effort standing AGAINST those who would presumably be their allies.

    Some Republicans have consistently, even in the face of gains made by "tea party" conservatives in their party, shunned those gains, and pegged the new conservatism as "extreme."  Rather than embrace the ideas of responsibility and restraint with regard to government, they have instead attempted to scuttle reform efforts by those who were in fact elected under a conservative flag.  Such things as spending within means, and abiding by the constitution, to centrists, is tantamount to guaranteeing they would be unelected in following cycles.

    So instead of promoting any message that is constitutionally legitimate, or perhaps even (dare we suggest) "righteous," it is far easier to put finger to the wind, and see where society would accept deviation from current conditions and then assume relatively safe positions.  Far easier to be "politically correct," slight those who share your party banner, and continue a path toward complete socialism for the sake of personal power.

    And they call it "moderation," being reasonable, more "centrist."

    And those who have no ability to stand up for anything they pretend to believe, proudly state that they are indeed milquetoast.

    Including some notable Michiganders and others below the fold.
