  • 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

    Snyder Pooh-poohs Tax Reduction for Michigan Consumers

    HB 5696 passes 106-2.  via mLIVE

    "It's a huge tax credit for working families," said Rep. Andrea LaFontaine, a Republican from Columbus Township in St. Clair County who is sponsoring the bill. "It had large bipartisan support. I do think it was long overdue."

    Currently in Michigan, people who buy a new or used car pay sales tax on the full price without a credit if they trade in a vehicle. LaFontaine said what she is proposing is done in 44 other states.

    The Senate approved a similar bill in May on a 37-1 vote, and now it is up to GOP legislative leaders to decide whether to make it a priority - likely in the "lame duck" session after the November election.

    Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said he does not support the House bill "in its current form at this time" because it "creates a problematic hole in the budget without any plan to address it."


    Translating Wurfel: You people are cRaZy.  You all should know by now that Rick doesn't play like that.  Besides, letting the little folks keep more of their money cuts too deeply into the private property tax break he wants for his special interest corporate cronies.

    Vote YES on 5.

    Feet Meet Fire

    One of the most disturbing things I have ever had to do in my life is pull the lever for Rick Snyder.

    Yeah, I know.  The bootlickers in Lansing are saying that "Gillman has turned RightMichigan.com into a hate Republican site, and right now we need all the help we can get! What is the matter with those guys, going on like that in the middle of the most important election of our time?!"


    I would agree that this is indeed the most election of our time.  Of our lives even, and quite possibly the most defining point we have had in the last century. This is ACTUALLY a LOVE the Republicans site. But its a little more like 'hard love', in the hope that the right decisions are made by those political adolescents that currently are in power .

    Anyhow, Rick Snyder is not running for anything right now.

    Yet he still needs to be held accountable for his actions. And even inaction. Given that Michigan started out the process of this election cycle as a slightly leaning Democrat (Obama) state, and now is considered (once again) a lost cause by the ongoing Republican presidential campaign, we should be a little concerned for the down tickets.  THIS will not help:

    "For the first time, the Governor, on the record, has confirmed he will not call out the president by name.

    MIRS asked, "You will say nothing negative about Barack Obama?"

    "No. I don't say negative things about people whenever I can help it," Snyder said.

    Excuse me, say what?

    Hedging bets? Trying to get him to capitulate on the bridge-trade pact? Is there a new Ardesta sales agreement with the feds for embryo oil?  Whats going on?

    Snyder, and those who support him are a disgrace to the Michigan Republican party.
