  • 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.

    Labor's Road trip

    Many of you have seen the way in which many of the labor unions which do business in Michigan are teaming up and holding their own rallies in small to medium sized towns, but you may might not be sure exactly what is being said unless you go to one.  

    Our small group of perhaps 50 folks demonstrated for Right To Work outside the entrance of a rally in Petoskey on Sunday.  While we held our ground outdoors, the teachers and other members of labor units attended one of these unification rallies inside.

    And even with a strong constitution, the thought of attending the emotion ginning affairs might be tough. Try holding your lunch while listening to old mobsters try to explain to the younger new union members that they have to be more aggressive, and stick together (to do something illegal).  Listen to the custodian mom who has been getting dragged to each of these affairs because she is worried about her job, with the new legislation mandating bid process for off-education activities.  

    The tour of Michigan towns and villages according to our infiltrator at the Petoskey pro-union rally are getting mixed signals, and our message while standing outside the entrance to the event was perhaps internalized a little.  People want the right to work in Michigan.

    Funny how that looks..  "people want the right to work"

    When did we have to start asking permission?

    For the custodian mom, she is sure her job will be contracted out.  She may well really think so, but the attendees are being done a disservice by the labor handlers of hers not also mentioning that her union could bid as well, taking a more entrepreneurial role. Hmmm, "entrepreneurial role" ... where have I seen THAT before?

    But I digress..  

    More as I have time through the day.

    ~ Promoted by JGillman because I will be discussing this later as well ~

    In the aftermath of the very close MI01 Republican primary, won by Dan Benishek of Crystal Falls by 15 votes, several things have transpired that has tested the friendships and trust of tea party members and patriots, and the movement itself.

    From all corners of the globe we have been attracting attention with the activities of the tea parties.  In this clip you might even recognize a few of your friends from Michigan.

    Funny how even with a language difference, it makes more sense than our national media attempts of explaining the tea parties.

    Conservatives R US

    Most should realize by now, that it was not the conservative philosophy that buried the state's manufacturers and automakers in unsustainable expenses.  It wasn't constitutionalists who raise taxes so the government can buy more poverty. And it could generally be said that the "right wing" principles of responsibility and accountability are making a resurgence.

    Not so sure about that?

    Take a look at nearly any community of 1000 or more in Michigan on the 15th of April.  You will see people gathering to celebrate responsibility, and sending a message to our government that what is going on, is NOT working!  What you will see is the message that conservatives have been talking about ...forever.  In fact, even as the media tried to down play conservative pull back in the Republican party, more folks on both side of the fence were starting to wake up to what is truly happening around them.

    They looked at Detroit..
