  • 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.

    Saw this, and thought it was an interesting way to say "A Dollar a day" could do wonders for a candidate far more appropriate for the job than the current occupant.

    Of course, sending a check for $20-$50 every couple of weeks or a month instead, could save you a ton on stamps too.

    Konetchy Video Challenging Dave Camp

    Aside from the fact that Dave Camp refuses to defund Obamacare, there are many votes that suggest the current 4th district US Representative hasn't a clue what the constitution truly means.

    Konetchy calls him out on a few things.

    Its a David/Goliath battle brewing, and we hardly have to tell you which guy needs to wield the stone in a sling.

    However, these fights have a positive effect by forcing the incumbents to re-assess their records, and past behavior.

    Its why I like to see those who are in office ALWAYS face a primary challenge.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    BREAKING - Konetchy Will Challenge Dave Camp

    4th District Republicans will have a choice for the Republican nomination next year.

    Peter Konetchy, a Republican from Roscommon in Michigan's 4thCongressional District, has announced his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives. He notes the failure of Camp's years in the US Congress to resolve a growing federal interference in our lives.

    "We no longer have the limited, constitutional government that was created to serve the needs of the states. Decades of federal interference have stifled our economic growth, forced our jobs overseas, bankrupted our nation, destroyed the financial security of our families, and severely eroded our personal freedoms. Unless we take corrective action now, we will lose the greatest nation ever conceived, wasted the blood of generations who fought to retain our liberties, and condemned our posterity to a life of financial and civic servitude."
    Hard to disagree with that.

    Konetchy takes aim on Camp in a number other points in his press release.

    Herman, Go Home

    What a tragic development this former presidential candidate Strategic National (John Yob) is revealing himself to be.  Herman first hitches his wagon to Newt Porkulus Bill Gingrich (Yob), and now he's in Michigan stumping for Pete TARP$tra's campaign ...managed by .. John Yob.

    "The Tea Party conservatives have been increasingly supporting Pete Hoekstra over the years as a result of his staunch fiscal policies in Congress," Cain said in a statement to the paper.

    If that statement is true, it's disgusting.  Cain is either ignorant about the Party power brokers in play in Michigan in general, or as I suspect, merely playing the old political payola game for other obvious agendas.  Either way, no plausible excuse is acceptable anymore.

    Go back home to Georgia, Herman.  Look, you're still an affable and very likable man Mr. Cain, but after 18 years of Pete TARP$tra in DC .. you've got it wrong.  It's more than enough of Pete.

    U.S. Senate Debate In Traverse City Part IV

    Another round (a little out of order) from the Traverse City Debate sponsored by the Grand Traverse Republican Party.

    The Social Security Question.

    Interesting responses.

    However, When one looks at the bigger picture of this Ponzi scheme, it seems that some further out of the box answers may be necessary.  Opting out perhaps?

    I wonder what Pete Hoekstra or Clark Durant would say?  Shame they didn't show up for this GOP sponsored event.

    Enjoy.  Another video will be available later.

    U.S. Senate Debate In Traverse City Part III

    This second round has the candidates explaining how they would deal with what is one of the most egregious anti-constitutional laws put on the books in our nation's history.

    What about Obama care?  What should we do about it?

    As we look to the possible results of next year's elections, the Senate will be playing an important part in how this is handled going forward.  If the SCOTUS says it stands with an expected ruling in April of 2012, it will be especially important to have Senators who are principled enough to destroy it from within the body of its creation.

    It was too bad that candidates Hoekstra and Durant "couldn't attend" this debate, as it would have allowed us to see how committed they are in reversing the trend of big government mandates  and encroachment on our rights.  Perhaps for Pete, and his record, its best to stay "mysterious" so that some are easily fooled into thinking he might actually carry sufficient principle into this fight when its time. As For Clark, I don't know him well enough yet.  Maybe a video response by either of them would be a sufficient way to answer?

    Gentlemen, its an opportunity if there ever was one.

    As promised, here is round one of the Grand Traverse Republican Senate Debate in Traverse City, Michigan.

    Less Government, more individual responsibility, and with God's help a better world. Do you have a problem with that as a Senate principle to follow?

    Each of the participants had 2 minutes each to answer.

    In the morning I should have the remainder of the questions available.
