  • 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.

    Action Alert! RTL Mistakenly Supporting Exchanges

    Don't believe a word you hear from supporters of Obamacare being implemented in any way. you are being lied to. This popped into the inbox today.

    Tina Dupont of the Tea Party of West Michigan writes:



     Michigan Right To Life has been convinced (guess by who)that a state written exchange will keep us from paying for abortions. They are a strong lobbying group in Lansing as you all know and they are, as I write this, working on our House members to get them to vote to use 9.8 Mill (our federal tax dollars) to start the process of writing a state exchange. Also NFIB has started to do likewise.

    Please Please Please, this has to go viral. We must pressure MI RTL to stop this madness and call our Michigan House yet again to encourage them to stay the course. Rep Haines has put up a very valiant fight for us and we must buck her up now so that she can hold her stand against this horrible confiscation of such a large chunk of our economy by Obama and his group of thugs!

    We know that it will not matter who writes this thing as the feds (HHS) will force us to pay for abortions. HHS has total control and they want this badly.

    The exchange will be available in later years if we find we cannot stop this thing. It does not have to be done today, now.

    She is correct. The exchange MUST NOT HAPPEN.

    Watch the video.  Then have your state legislator tell Washington to shove this intrusion into state's rights where the thermometer might go.

    Don't sit around.  Call now.

    One Week Away

    Tags: Michigan, House, Elections, Primary, 104th District (all tags)

    For many, this week will be an especially long one.

    Count me as one of those watching the clock tick away till Tuesday.  

    As many might know already, the first financials are out.  In the 104th district race, if one was to look at the money spent, and figured all that mattered was how much each candidate used, then one might think that the establishment wins yet another time.  No amount of financial paint however, can pretty up the big government ways of the 104th district incumbent, and frankly folks are beginning to wise up.

    Looking at the financials, a $76k expenditure is impressive, a $95K fund raise even more so.  But the base of support is maybe not so good for a four year incumbent. Most of the donations are lobbying PACS, law firms, and chamber entities including the often screwed up Detroit chamber. In fact looking at the collection, I may have driven part of the fundraising effort for him.  They sure want him back.  Bad.

    But its up to the people who vote.

    After personally reaching (mostly lit drop) about 950 doors in the last 4 days alone, any feedback I have gotten indicates a mood for changing up.  Printer's tired, but I'm not.

    Yet.  And I have help.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Wait Until November

    By JGillman, Section News

    Tags: Michigan, Bill Schuette, Healthcare, Marketplace, Exchange, Obamacare, ACA, House, Jase Bolger (all tags)

    Mr Bolger, with regard to the new health care exchange, listen to the next Governor.
    "I think it would be wiser for our policy leaders in this state to wait until November, that's the final decision break point on this healthcare debate."

    In other words, take your time.

    And a side note on the question of WHOM is to be running the exchange?  Name three or four of the current governor's best friends, and you will be pretty close. If they are not currently, then they are soon-to-be, as it will involve vast amounts of money.

    Let me remind the house leaders of testimoney they heard earlier this year (Below the fold)

    Not Just For Baseball - Capiche?

    I wrote about coercion the other day.  In fact, I argue the contracts that are a part of the public employee arrangement are the result of coercive measures; that they are in fact "coercive contracts." That they are as such, non binding.

    And covering only the contracts themselves, one could argue the illegitimate role that labor provides, when discussing compensation and bargaining with public entities.  The monopolistic nature of Michigan's public sector employment pool negates any entrepreneurial efforts towards excellence that might develop, and the state's tax payers are hardly served in any constructive or positive manner.  In other words, a free market for those positions residing outside the labor influenced sphere would create great opportunities.

    Perhaps that is what labor fears.  So much so, that it has now returned to its base form of thinly veiled threats of violence and extortive measures on the private entities that actually pay the bills.  People OUTSIDE government now facing the very same violent animal attitude of organized labor types. Not yet here, but very, very, close.

    It seems for the time being folks, we have ALL become Wisconsinites.

    Hi/Low lights..

    OK, nothing really unexpected from what I have scanned over in my free (somewhat limited ) time.  The expected plays from the left and a couple of different ideas on how to handle perceived issues.  I have a couple of select legislative pushes here that don't raise too much on the surprise meter.  Perhaps we will see a few attempts in differing ways to move these first couple along, as they are likely to be shot down (can I say 'shot' anymore?) at first glance.

    It seems we are always looking at ways of reducing the cost of operating our schools in Michigan, so lets be especially ingenious and put additional burdens on the schools themselves.  That ALWAYS works:

    4179 of 2011:

    February 1, 2011, Introduced by Rep. Nathan and referred to the Committee on Education.
    A bill to amend 1976 PA 451, entitled  "The revised school code," by amending section 1278 (MCL 380.1278), as amended by 2004 PA 596, and by adding section 1164.


    Sec. 1164. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the board of a school district or board of directors of a public school academy shall ensure that all pupils in grades K to 12 are provided with instruction in at least 1 foreign language.

    Yeah, I know, we should have language skills..  Lets make sure those kids have English mastered first perhaps?  The problem in this country is NOT the lack of a second language, but rather the inability for immigrants legal or otherwise to speak the native tongue.  For sure he wants our schools to straighten those heads full of mush up, and maybe make em a little less mushy [physically] OUTWARDLY.  Nathan also wants those little fatties in grade school to pay attention to their calorie counts as well.. in HB 4180 of 2011.

    Cause kids are just too big..  Like some cities.

    Yep..  and Detroit's recent size shrink has brought about a new way to change presumption of causality.. below the fold...

    From The Forum - Michigan's House 104th District Candidates

    Tags: 104th District, Glen Lile, House, Michigan, Wayne Schmidt (all tags)

    This is two of several candidates running for the Michigan house 104th district.  Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping Democrats from attending.  These two are running for the seat currently held by Wayne Schmidt

    As with the others the sound could be better, and as with some of the videos taken at the event, I could not compress without losing content, so they are broken into two parts.

    I hope this helps.

    This is merely Five of several candidates running for the Michigan house 105th district.  Scheduling conflicts apparently keeping Democrats from  attending.  These five are running for the seat to be vacated by Kevin Elsenheimer.

    Tags: Bart Stupak, Michigan, Healthcare, Abortion, Senate, House (all tags)

    Is it possible that 1st congressional district representative Bart Stupak is having a fit of conscience?

    A recent CNS news interview reveals Stupak has been told to essentially shut up until the deal is done.

    "They think I shouldn't be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language," Stupak told CNSNews.com in an interview on Tuesday. "Well, I don't need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I've seen it. I've worked with it. I know what it says. I don't need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here."

    This from just one member of a coalition which found funding of abortion by taxpayers reprehensible, and so much so they held up the house vote until assured it wasn't going to happen.
