    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.

    Flint Butchery Closes

    Among the endless negative news stories of corruption and government out of control, is a ray of light in Flint.

    The Feminine Health Care Clinic in Flint seems to be out of business for now according to MLIVE

    "A Flint abortion clinic that made national news after a Fenton Township woman claimed that she was held down by a doctor and forced to have an abortion at the facility has closed.


    Appliances and furniture can still be seen inside the brick and metal building. A glass door to the facility is shattered and the metal-bar door guarding an entrance has been forced open. "

    Which likely means squatters have already moved in for the cool summer nights.

    Bully for them.

    A far better use .. unless the state wants to take it over and lease as a film studio for the next series of horror flicks.

    Compassion does not necessarily equal ethical behavior.

    What someone might call "the right thing to do," might be anything but that. Especially if it requires that a crime be perpetrated in order to follow through.  Most acts of compassion by an individual cannot be questioned.  It is self sacrifice; or giving, that heals, nurtures, grows, etc.  It becomes a very different act when perpetrated through coercion upon some for the benefit of others.

    The affordable care act is one of those "right things to do" according to its supporters.  However, it is also one of those things which has no authority as an enumerated power defined in the constitution.  The federal government has no authority to act on state's issues such as health care, welfare, and schooling.  Only the broadest interpretation of commerce issues allow it to assume other responsibilities such as labor and transportation, but those come from the weak links established through a lazy practice known as case law, and precedent.

    The federal government has no reason to be involved in, or managing the critical aspects of our lives.  The mantra of "Its the law of the land"  be damned.  We still have a constitution, as damaged as it might be through neglect and cowardice.  It provides absolute protections from authority to the people, and to the states which those people reside.

    Unless those states and people surrender to that authority.

    $1.84 a Gallon Gas On Monday

     Americans for Prosperity - Michigan to Offer Flint-Area Drivers Gas at $1.84 Per Gallon, Monday

    Gas promotion part of the group's Obama's Failing Agenda bus tour

    LANSING, MI - Americans for Prosperity-Michigan will offer Flint-area drivers gasoline at $1.84 per gallon* -- the cost of gas four years ago when President Obama took office. The promotion begins this Monday, October 1st, at 2:30 p.m., at the Beacon & Bridge gas station located at the Mt. Morris exit off I-75, just north of Flint.  Scott Hagerstrom, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan said

    "We want to remind people what the true cost of President Obama's failed green energy policies has been. President Obama has made it more expensive for Michigan families to drive to work, take our children to school and sporting events, and make trips to the grocery store."

    WHO: Americans for Prosperity-Michigan
    WHAT: Obama's Failing Agenda, $1.84 gasoline promotion (Note: gasoline will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Reduced-price gas will be limited to the first 150 vehicles, with each vehicle being limited to 15 gallons)
    WHEN: Monday, October 1st, beginning at 2:30 p.m.
    WHERE: Beacon & Bridge, Mt. Morris exit off I-75, just north of Flint, 4181 W. Mt. Morris Rd., Mt. Morris Township, MI 48458

    Hagerstrom continued

    "The President claims to have an `all of the above' energy policy, yet his Administration has rescinded oil and gas leases and held up oil permits with bureaucratic red tape. Average retail gasoline prices have more than doubled under President Obama. That has caused Michiganders pain at the pump, but also increased the cost of consumer goods such as groceries."

    The Obama's Failing Agenda bus tour will educate Americans on the most harmful aspects of President Obama's big-government agenda, and help put grassroots pressure on politicians to turn away from these destructive policies. The stop in Flint will include educational information and a petition addressed to the President for citizens to complete.

    The Failing Agenda bus tour is an issue advocacy effort by Americans for Prosperity and does not expressly advocate for the success or defeat of any candidate for public office. More information is available at http://www.FailingAgenda.com

    Americans for Prosperity-Michigan is a statewide organization of 75,000 activists committed to strengthening our constitutional government, establishing fiscal restraint, and giving taxpayers greater control over government. We are dedicated to recruiting, training, educating and motivating grassroots activists to be effective in their own communities. Americans for Prosperity does not support or oppose candidates for public office.

    Don't you just hate it when government gets involved in healthcare?

    Don't you just hate it when the government tells you what health care services you can provide?

    More specifically, where you can provide them and to whom you can provide them to?

    This isn't America's dystopian future under Obamacare.

    At least not yet, anyway.

    This is something a little more below the radar and closer to home.

    Promoted for discussion ~

    Pete Hoekstra's campaign has made the decision to spend the money necessary to purchase a Super Bowl ad to run in key Michigan media markets (Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Marquette, Lansing, and Traverse City) just before kickoff in Indianapolis.  Naturally, the Michigan Democrat Party is not pleased.

    Final Notice!

    Tags: Saginaw, Flint, Detroit, Looters, Michigan Democratic Party, When will it sink in? (all tags)

    The deadbeats sitting in the taxpayer hammock for the past 10-15 years have been properly served.

    The Michigan Department of Human Services (DHS) has reissued 11,162 notices to Family Independence Program (FIP) recipients who have reached their FIP cash assistance lifetime limits, in accordance with the ruling by U.S. District Judge Paul D. Borman on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011. The reissued notices cite the appropriate legal authority as well as more prominent language on the appeal process, as required in the ruling.

    "We are moving forward with the welfare reform passed by the legislature," said Maura D. Corrigan, DHS director. "These notices, the fourth that have been sent to recipients affected, follow Judge Borman's directive."

    The more restrictive lifetime limits on cash assistance became law on Oct. 1, 2011. Those affected by the limits received three notices, beginning on Aug. 9, and a minimum of three phone calls from a DHS social worker. In addition, DHS has staffed a call center for those affected by the lifetime limits to assist them with benefits ranging from job placement to rent assistance.

    Thanks for the added redundancy costs ya bunch of Looters.
