  • 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.

    Run Over By Democrats!

    I received a mailing recently from 7th District Congressman Mark Schauer, "prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense."  It illustrates a semi-tractor with the US Capital Building being towed behind it.  The Semi with Capital Building attached is just a rollin' down the highway bearing down on Michigan taxpayers and businesses, "get out of the way, we are out of control!" is the subliminal message of the picture.    
    President Obama is driving the truck, Congressman Schauer is seated next to him in the middle and Governor Grandholm is seated at the right hand window.  All three are bringing higher taxes, more regulation and added costs to Michigan taxpayers and businesses that will in turn drive more businesses out of business here in Michigan.  
    The sad fact is that "Business Out Of Business" seems to be their goal.  These three have been told over and over again that higher taxes and more regulation drives business out of business and yet these three keep piling on higher taxes and more regulation and businesses keep leaving the state.  What are they thinking?  
    These three just don't get it.  When business goes out of business people lose their jobs.  When people lose their jobs they can easily fall into a life of poverty and dependence.  Wait a minute, maybe that is what these Democrats want, more people out of work and dependent on government.  
    Yes, that's it!  The more people out of work the more people are dependent on government.  
    These Democrats actually want more and more people dependent on government, the Democrat kind of government, BIG Government, Democrat Government.  You see Democrat Government is government of Democrats, by Democrats and for Democrats!  
    This is the Obama, Grandholm, Schauer kind of government!  
    Democrat government works for Democrats but not for the people of Michigan or America!
