    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

    What happened to my Republican Party?

    I have always been a Republican. In fact, I have never voted for a Democrat; no matter how much I disliked the GOP candidate on the ballot.

    I have voted for Reagan (twice, though I supported George H.W. Bush in the '80 primary), Bush (twice), Dole and Bush (twice). Recently, I have been embroiled in a never-ending discussion on the comments section of another blog article. I have been discussing what happened to my Republican Party; the Republican Party of George H.W. Bush, Ronald W. Reagan, Gerald R. Ford, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. What happened to the party that had majorities in Michigan for a hundred years after the Civil War? What happened to the party that elected George W. Romney and William G. Milliken governor of Michigan?

    While I am a conservative, in the tradition of Russell Kirk, I am also a pragmatist. And I thought it important to have this discussion as Republicans from across Michigan prepare to embark for Mackinac Island.

    From my friend.... Chuck Moran

    One of the things that made Reagan so successful was that he had a strong rudder and knew where he was going.  He didn't let the "facts" change his mind. When presented with information counter to what he knew was right, he just told them to get him some new facts.  

    Recently folks have been talking about personal responsibility and families (not family values).  These issues resonate with most Americans and speak truth.  If these issues are to be our rudder, our leaders can't be thrown off course by the "big tent" theory.  With that in mind, here is an e-mail I got from a friend of mine, Chuck Moran.  Enjoy!

    I just wanted to throw out some thoughts I had this morning with regards to Saul Anuzis' run for RNC Chairman as well as the direction the Party is headed in the future.

    Let me start right off by saying that I have spoken to Saul many times in the past and found him energetic and affable. He is a good speaker and is far from being lazy. At this point in time, I am not saying he is my candidate for the position of RNC Chair, but if he won I wouldn't throw myself out a window either. Please do your homework on this important issue.

    My problem is the direction of the Party itself. Prior to the 2006 gubernatorial race in Michigan, I wrote Saul and Party Chief, Chuck Yob, that "the average voter cannot tell the difference between a Democrat and a Republican" after these men supported Joe Schwartz for U.S. Representative in Michigan's 7th Congressional District.  While I have no personal animus towards Joe, I believed he did not reflect the traditional Republican values his constituents desired such as protecting the unborn and not supporting embryonic stem cell research. This runs counter to the traditional GOP platform and blurs the distinction of who is the liberal in the race. My suggestion was to not support anyone in the race if they couldn't come right out and support Joe's conservative opponent. Mr. Schwartz lost to Tim Walberg in that race. Since that time, I believe Saul has gotten "Conservative Religion".   Read on....
