    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.

    The 2013 Update of the Freedom Index is out.

The percentages below are cumulative scores are based on key votes from 1999 through 2013. Click on a senator's or representative's name to get a detailed breakdown of his or her voting record.


    Sen. Carl Levin - 13%

    Dist.1: Dan Benishek - 70%
    Dist.2: Bill Huizenga - 76%

    Dist.12: John Dingell - 21%
    Dist.13: John Conyers - 28%
    Dist.14: Gary Peters - 15%

    48? 51? 53 percent constitutionally competent?  We KNOW the Democrats have abandoned any allegiance to the constitution, but its truly disturbing how 'our side' has characters that would so willingly disregard the TRUE rule of law.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Karen Jacobsen to Challenge 85-year-old Socialized Medicine Legacy Zealot

    via Dearborn Free Press

    Joined by a large group of enthusiastic supporters at her home in Dearborn, Karen Jacobsen  announced her campaign for Michigan's new 12th Congressional District against John Dingell.

    "As a mother, I am concerned about my daughter's future, and the future of her generation. As an Accountant and Business Owner, I am concerned about the future of our economy. I can no longer sit on the sidelines and just watch."

    "Voters have a clear choice. If you believe our government is too big, that deficit spending is out of control and that career politicians no longer work for us, then I ask for your support. Our window of opportunity to reverse the course of this country is at a crisis point. If unchecked, Washington will continue to spend, borrow, tax, and print worthless pieces of paper. We have to stop this. I am running for Congress to tackle the most difficult problems facing our country. My campaign is about arming the people of Michigan with new information, new ideas and offering them the opportunity to elect a real advocate who will represent them in Washington."

    To be exact, for Socialized Medicine to "control the people" it legislatively took the Dingell Dynasty from 1943 to March 23, 2010 to be accomplished.  

    Remember 2010 folks, John and Debbie Dingell directly profited from the Auto Bailout...

    "Sincere, but they were about the past." or something like that

    It sure didn't take long for the Dingellosaurus to do the Walk Back.

    "I have a tremendous amount of confidence in Mayor Bing, and my comments about Detroit yesterday were a reflection on past Administrations that helped dig the hole the city finds itself in, not on the current Administration that is trying desperately to get the city out of the hole.  I am and always have worked for the betterment of the City and its people, and I intend to continue that course..."

    Okay, Bing deserved the feigned apology.  But.  That wasn't what Johnny was "sniping".  Dingell was blatantly "targeting" Governors.  Unmistakably that'd have to point to fellow Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm.  Not to mention Dingells' reference to all "Stone-Agers" err, Conservative Republicans.

    Oh, Johnny... is there anything that he won't say?

    There once was a show on HBO called Tales from the Crypt that instantly came to mind when reading today's JOA News.  Yes, Dearborn's very own Congressman Dingell or, the Crypt Keeper if you will, was busy playing a soft race-baiting card for the City of Detroits' $8,000,000,000.00 debt and "Targeting" Michigan's Republican legislature.

    Washington-- Rep. John Dingell on Tuesday said the city of Detroit is in dire straits and needs state intervention to recover economically.

    "Michigan cannot exist with Detroit the way that it is," Dingell told students at his alma mater, Georgetown University, when asked about the state's ability to rebuild without Detroit. "I haven't yet seen a governor who wants to appoint somebody.

    "Every governor is afraid."

    Exactly where has the "Dean of the House" been for the past 8 years?  I don't recall Johnny talking this way during his fellow Democrat Governor Granholm reign that was preoccupied with running the entire state into the ground.  Did the City of Detroit just magically become a cesspool of corruption, poverty and indebtedness on January 1, 2011 when Governor Snyder assumed Office?  Nope.  I suspect there's more to this new interest in Detroit than Johnny is leading onto...

    Remove Dingell

    It is time John Dingell is extracted from the legislative body.

    A recent message from Michigan Campaign for Liberty highlights just a few recent reasons to send this unter schlaggen packing.

    • Obamacare

    • Dingell voted for a huge military budget that included "The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act" because committing crimes against a preferred class is more egregious than committing crimes against the working class or bourgeoisie.

    • He voted against HR1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act.  A vote against HR1207 is a vote to preserve the secrecy and unaccountability of the PRIVATE Federal Reserve, an unconstitutional and corrupt conglomeration of eugenicists that have effectively bankrupted the country.  FYI: Since 1913, when the Federal    Reserve Act and 16th Amendment were supposedly passed the value of the USD has depreciated 95%.  In other words, something that you could buy for $.05 in 1913 would cost you $1.00 today.

    • The Cybersecurity Act of 2009:
    Essentially, the Act would federalize critical infrastructure security. Since many of our critical infrastructure systems (banks, telecommunications, energy) are in the hands of the private sector, the bill would create a major shift of power away from users and companies to the federal government. This is a potentially dangerous approach that favors the dramatic over the sober response.

    • "Cap and Tax," a massive energy regulation bill, that he freely admitted was an enormous tax.

    Dingells Last Stand?

    Tomorrow is a big day.

    Tomorrow, October 20 2010, Congressman John Dingell Faces Dr. Rob Steele of Ann Arbor in a Debate at Monroe Community College's La-Z-Boy Center. It is scheduled for 6:30-7:30 p.m.

    Congress' most senior legislator John Dingell faces the culmination of his life's work.  He will get to defend the utter failure that is socialism.  He will have to argue successfully, that Socialism has brought about good things for the area he represents.

    One must ask, how bright was the South Eastern part of the great state of Michigan in 1955 when Dingell first became a congressman, and what parts of his political philosophy has brought about the success he sees now?  Should he first identify what he has personally done, or perhaps highlight the great achievements that have improved life for Michiganders who have entrusted him in Washington with their welfare?

    Indeed success speaks for itself, he might declare.  And perhaps how Detroit has grown to become the shining jewel of the nation, and Michigan's manufacturing has grown to be the envy of the world, and indeed how such wonderful opportunity abounds!

    If it was true.
