  • 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.

    Something To Rally Around

    The Michigan state house education committee has received three bills worth checking out.

    Each one promoting a better understanding of the history of our country and the reasons for its founding.

    • SB121 essentially encourages schools to set aside one week a year where the students are actually exposed to the founding documents, not as tangential history, but why the compact and the constitution was developed.
    • SB120 removes the perceived shackles placed on public instruction with regard to the readings of historic records.  Heaven forbid (pun intended) that johnny hears the word God when a reading of the federalist papers, proclamations, etc.
    • SB423 Encourages the schools to provide instruction focusing on the principles of the Declaration of Independence (self evident truths), the US Constitution (our compact), and the Michigan State Constitution. It also requires the state Board of Education to update curriculum and testing standards to cover these subjects.

    Hopefully not too late, as much of the indoctrinated are already teaching.

    But we applaud such measures as worthy and restorative for our state and country.

    AYFKM?  Witness ^ my last Starbucks coffee - ever.  Yannow, I've always had a complete disdain for Jews like Howard Schultz who have less than total support for our Right to keep and bear arms.  It is based in good reason.  As they say, all politics is local.  Not to mention how quickly history goes ignored by the Schultz's, Bloomberg's, and Feinstein's in this nation.  Unscrupulous bastards.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    House Amendment Kills Common Core

    Lansing still has a few good men.

    Tom McMillin is one of them

    The Michigan House today approved the Department of Education budget with an amendment which does not allow them to implement Common Core State Standards or "Smarter Balanced Assessments". Sponsored by State Rep. Tom McMillin, the amendment is similar to House Bill 4276 which is currently before the House Education Committee.

    The amendment addresses the Common Core State Standards that were never approved by a Michigan Legislature. Concerns had been raised about the State Board of Education exceeding its authority as it attempts to implement standards in Michigan schools, created by a private, national organization, the National Governor's Association. The National Governor's Association controls the content of the Common Core State Standards, and the privately-owned "Smarter Balanced Assessments" align with those standards.

    Think copyrighted 'Fire-Codes'.

    Expect that we will.

    But in the meantime, note that those young conservative stalwarts fighting for "truth and the American way, civil discourse (especially from 'bigot haters'), and eventual control of the Michigan GOP, are perfectly willing to use the tools of the left to draw support from the left.  Where else but the Obama 'petition' site is the calling out for Agema's Resignation. Using the site favored by low information voters for its pretense of reaching the president himself, One of the signers of the other petition, Timothy Maurer, "Greater Detroit Area Republican" has continued to advance such greatness as Homosexuality, destruction of family, spread of disease, and the neo-RINO mentality.

    Bravo young Maurer! Obama will invite you for a beer summit soon to discuss your 'concern'.

    What a champ!  What a hero to young Pizza munchers who want to be Republicans, but can't because they don't like personal responsibility, family values, the first amendment, or anything else that Republicans stand for!  What a supporter of strong families, and tradition, by holding Barack Obama's hand and opening up the internal debate of Michigan Republicans into a place where the left can emerge from the underbelly of our nation and weigh in with their agenda for advanced personal destruction.  Support as expressed by a [non-Republican] Jennifer from Holland:

    " I am not Republican, though I hold many of the values they proclaim to support: I believe in strong families, based in commitment to one another and their communities. I believe in helping those less fortunate than myself and allowing people to believe what they wish, as long as their beliefs do not cause harm or loss to others. I have been married for 13 years and we have a son we are raising to be a good human being. But you would deny me my family of 13 years simply because my spouse is another woman. ... "
    Ooooh snap!

    And that son will learn tolerance! And will learn how to be intolerant of intolerance to promote tolerance of the intolerable!

    Yes MR. Maurer, you seek "a big tent" with no walls. Am I right?  Is that what you desire?

    Bravo then, as you have found a way to do it by reaching out to those who are destroying the rest of the culture, energy, defense, budget, science, education, and last but not least, freedom of religion.

    Yet another great media project by Bill Whittle.


    This is precisely why the GOP's foisted on us flip-flopping Willard received my NOTA vote.  This is also why the One Term Nerd will not be receiving my vote in '14.  Tho, you have time to course correct, Governerd.  Choice is yours.

    By golly, there's three more C's for you, Rick.

    Now, a brief word from the drab rumpled blazer, and tieless blue oxford shirt.

    Rick, forgot to clearly state his main premise of the Big C - crony capitalism.

    OABTW, Governerd, I will allow you to call this taxpaying citizen a "customer" when I have the choice of not having my money taken by force, and the option of spending it on a better value than your intrusive, growing government bureaucracy dependent upon more coercion.

    Why Abe Lincoln Called 'em Michiganders

    From the too good not to share section of The Detroit News.

    L'Anse Creuse High School was evacuated Tuesday morning after an airman from the Selfridge Air National Guard Base went to the school, spooking staff by wearing his camouflage uniform military fatigues.

    Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said the 21-year-old airman, a former student, was at the school at about 6 a.m. attempting to get a letter of recommendation.

    A member of the midnight-shift custodial staff spotted the man entering the school in his camouflage military fatigues, a flak jacket and a holster with no weapon in it.



    Memo to Citiots: in my parts of the state if a little camo, and at least talk of hunting, or firearms isn't the norm one is automatically deemed light in the loafers.
