  • 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.

    There is a lot more to be said for the rally in Lansing from yesterday.  The stark contrast in how people behave, and the emotion level between this type of rally and what we as conservatives might engage in. (tea parties) Frequently surrounded by packs of union employees (NOT ALWAYS MEMBERS) from MESSA, MEA, UAW, we were not allowed to make any reasonable argument for more than 3 seocnds before hearing "Koch brothers!  "Corporate welfare! etc.."  Being shouted down was standard fare, and for the most part our group remained rather calm and dignified.

    I say "for the most part" because I had to give an anthropological lesson to an English teacher at one point. (an explanation of the build up to fighting like apes) This was complete with an acted out sequence of what happens before two gorillas begin to tear out each other's throats. I don't believe he appreciated being taught, and wouldn't stop yelling after that, so I turned my back to him and began a conversation with a more reasonable person.

    I went through some of the video from the Saturday February 26 rally in Lansing last night before hitting it. I would be lying if I said there were no civil conversations held, but frankly the few that were indeed civil, could not make up for the cat calls, the abusive language, and physical intimidation offered by those whom we disagree with.

    For my part, I am convinced many of the labor union members that go to these rallies are little more than animals.  They operate on a feral code of emotional response akin to dogs in a pack.  Violent tendencies seem to be their commonality, with no regard to personal property, or the physical well being of their fellow man.  As one example, in the video below, my son was using the camera to pan across the crowd, but was identified as being with our small group of tea partiers.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Dead Ponies

    As much as possible, I try to keep both MTTM and RightMichigan separate in author content, however, I realize that some folks don't get over there, and vice versa..

    Today's post over, is about whether our state Republican electees are prepared to examine their principled beliefs, or if they pander to the will of the entrenched ideology of progressivism within the Michigan GOP.  An entrenched ideology I might add, that attempts to shame true conservatives for being too far right.

    -- -- --

    Dead Ponies.  Re-posted from Michigan Taxes Too Much

    One of the toughest things for Republicans elected to positions that have, as a matter of course the spending of taxpayer money, is the `supporting business' angle. Perhaps it could even be called a `supporting the economy' paradigm. Business is everything right? So why wouldn't an elected official do everything to get business going, and create those jobs? And why shouldn't Republicans support any measure that enhances business activities, promotes job growth, and expands business in general?

    Define "any" first, and we may have the appropriate answer.

    And any legislator who wants to do what is best for his or her constituents might be at risk.

    More below.
