  • 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.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    Hippocritical Mass

    Mikey, where did all your anti-American Occupy friends go?

    Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore sent out a mass email Wednesday warning that the historic Traverse City movie theater, which is the base of the city's film festival, is in bad financial shape and in danger of closing.

    "So, the theater is in crisis. A building maintenance crisis, and a financial crisis. And measures need to be taken immediately ... or well, I don't want to go there," Moore writes in the lengthy email.

    Oh, the horrors of choosing a Socialist business model.  Eventually you run out of other peoples money.  I've never been to his theater, nor ever will, but it's description in the article sorta sounds like Cuba.  Which is fitting of comrade Moore...

    Mike, you are the crony capitalist 1%.  If you want to save your theater, cut a check for it ya treacherous parasite.

    Publicly Owned Privately Profited

    I am proud to be among a great number of critical thinkers in this forum. Discussion that is necessary happens here, and points are often made that might not have been considered without the discussion. Kevin Heine makes such a point during our recent NICT back and forth.
    "Beyond this raising the question of: Does public ownership/private operation mean any losses are public, any profit private? (and I think the answer is, "yes"), I've seen this concept elsewhere, and Merriam-Webster has the definition."

    But its more in how crony capitalists roll.  In fact, this would be a great place to stop and find a local 'occupier' for the purposes of redirecting them to the Michigan capitol's lawn.  No doubt much of the occupy movement is (for lack of a more appropriate word) 'occupied' by hardcore progressives, but one of the messages they seem to be sporting is they want an end to 'capitalism'.  And though they say 'capitalism,' we all know they mean 'crony capitalism,' as it has been the only thing allowed by the institution of an all powerful bureaucracy through political reward and economic gamesmanship.

    This thing, this bridge thing.  As we watch the governor squander political goodwill in deal trade after deal trade, we also watch the effect of good legislators who are willing to question its efficacy, or the need for the bridge.

    It didn't make sens to place private profit and political patronage over public liability during the Granholm administration in the last 8 years, and it makes no more sense now.
