  • 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

    I-Caucus of Michigan and the Michigan Republican Senate Primary

    As I have written before, most of the organizations comprising the Michigan Tea Party Patriot Network are structured as 527 groups.  This means that they're not allowed to directly advocate the election or defeat of any candidate for elective office, only to operate on behalf of issue advocacy and voter mobilization.  However, the tea party networks in several states (including in Michigan) voluntarily operate in strategic partnership with an organization set up specifically as a Political Action Committee.  This organization concerns itself with candidate screening, endorsement, and advocacy, with a specific focus on constitutional loyalty and grassroots activism, and on integrity over money.

    The Independence Caucus is not a political party, nor is it affiliated with any political party.  It is, rather, a group of concerned citizens devoted to electing candidates truly committed to constitutional loyalty and fiscal responsibility, regardless of party.  The goal is the election of such candidates to not less than 40% of the available seats in the several state legislatures and both chambers of Congress . . . in each election year.  It is a not-for-profit organization of concerned citizens from all walks who recognize the responsibility to act now to protect future generations of this nation from the disastrous consequences of our systematic abrogation of constitutional principles, exists to teach us how to govern our country as citizens, and provides the practical tools and resources to actually make it happen.

    2012 Michigan Republican Senate Dance Card . . . Thus Far

    It's often been said (including frequently on this site) that the real choice in any election is in the primaries.  Once the primaries are over, you're essentially stuck with whoever survives.  And in next year's contest for the Class 1 seats in the U. S. Senate, the Michigan Republican primary election is going to be critical . . . as I've said before, there will be no excuse for sitting on the sidelines and then carping because you don't like who wound up on the top of the ticket.

    Of course, making an informed choice is always useful, and for that we should go below the fold.
