  • 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.

    Imad, Just Claim It's Sharia Law

    via The Detroit News

    Michigan Arab-American civil rights leader Imad Hamad has been placed on administrative leave while there's an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint.

    The move comes after State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, sent a letter Friday to the national board of the American-Arab Anti- Discrimination Committee accusing Hamad, director of the committee's Michigan regional office, of sexually harassing her and numerous women and contending the committee failed to stop Hamad.

    Rest if one can stomach an alleged 15-year-old complaint

    But, Rashida, to quote your Progressive Party's standard, Hillary Clinton, "What difference at this point does it make?"

    Actually, y'all would be much better off with reading this here.  At least it's the straight skinny on both Imad, and Rashida.

    At Least He's Honest

    If this weren't so true, it'd be my laugh for the day.

    "I wish we had a Republican governor in Michigan who would fight for this as well," said political guru Dick Morris on the Frank Beckmann Show this AM as he ticked off the four states " Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana " that are leading the charge against collective bargaining reform. His jab was aimed at "supposed Republican" Rick Snyder.

    Morris' critical comments buttress those made by Leon Drolet on our home page today and other Michigan conservative financial experts like Michael LaFaive who admire Snyder's leadership on the budget " but worry he is missing an opportunity to fundamentally reform the labor costs that are unsustainable in this state and elsewhere.


    "Republican governors are going to fundamentally alter the reform process," says Morris. And he fears Michigan is missing the boat.

    Michigan missed the boat last November by habitually electing RINO's then thinking they'll somehow achieve better results than Democrats.

    As noted above, the complete column here.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Madison predicted current political affairs

    Lets consider that when we elect our representation, we expect both adherence to rule of law, and to conservative principles that most who come here understand.  Countless arguments exist about big tents, relaxing standards, or tolerance to "new ideas" in the Republican party in Michigan and elsewhere.  

    Our founders were quite prescient however as seen by the words of Madison on the conformity to "Republican" Principles going forward. From The federalist papers No. 39.

    "The first question that offers itself is, whether the general form and aspect of the government be strictly republican. It is evident that no other form would be reconcilable with the genius of the people of America; with the fundamental principles of the Revolution; or with that honorable determination which animates every votary of freedom, to rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government. If the plan of the convention, therefore, be found to depart from the republican character, its advocates must abandon it as no longer defensible."

    Madison felt that Republican form of government served the people best, and to proceed with the convention sans IT being the premise of the new government, would be folly.  The premise of the new government was as a Republic.  The plan was to follow a set of limitations on government established by the constitution.  It was NOT a "democracy."

    39 is also a discussion of how we would have a mix of "national" and Federal" types of powers.  But for this little peek into the past, lets pick off a small section..
