  • 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

    Speaker John Boehner and Co. to Rep. Justin Amash: SPIN ON IT!

David Schweikert, Lindsay Lohan, "pay-no-attention-to-the-man-behind-the-curtain" moment, Inside the beltway politicians, far removed from reality, republican kakistocracy, secret scorecard, no it doesn't exist, no wait...yes it does, republican war against Tea Party. (all tags)

    It is a story that has fallen through the cracks with the coverage of Freedom to Work recently passed here in Michigan and the so-called "fiscal cliff" (which really isn't as much of as issue as the republican kakistocracy would like you to believe it is...provided they remember they still control the House and grow a spine). Don't dig any deeper. This is what is taking up most of the 22-minutes of air time the MSM wants you to pay attention to each day.

    Well that, and Lindsay Lohan's most recent troubles with the law.

    Got to stay focused on the paparazzi.

    Actually, this one is a little more disconcerting.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    546 People vs. We The People

    Charley Reese is a retired syndicated columnist (via King Features) who worked for the Orlando Sentinel from 1971 to 2001.  On March 7, 1985, he wrote a column entitled, "Looking For Someone To Blame? Congress Is A Good Place To Start."  This was a slightly updated version of his "Just 546 people to blame for U.S. errors," which was published on July 17, 1983, in the Elyria, Ohio, Chronicle-Telegram.  The column has been republished multiple times since then (notably in 1995 and in 2008), always with minor updating, and usually under the title "The 545 People Responsible for America's Woes," but with no change to the core point.

    What follows is my best effort to effectively blend the most widely circulated versions of the original article; I only hope that I do justice to the original work.
