  • 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.

    The 2013 Update of the Freedom Index is out.

    The Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution rates congressmen based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements. The percentages below are cumulative scores are based on key votes from 1999 through 2013. Click on a senator's or representative's name to get a detailed breakdown of his or her voting record.


    Sen. Carl Levin - 13%
    Sen. Debbie Stabenow - 18%
    Dist.1: Dan Benishek - 70%
    Dist.2: Bill Huizenga - 76%
    Dist.3: Justin Amash - 93%
    Dist.4: Dave Camp - 53%
    Dist.5: Daniel Kildee - 30%
    Dist.6: Fred Upton - 48%
    Dist.7: Tim Walberg - 71%
    Dist.8: Mike Rogers - 51%
    Dist.9: Sander Levin - 16%
    Dist.10: Candice Miller - 51%
    Dist.11: Kerry Bentivolio - 80%
    Dist.12: John Dingell - 21%
    Dist.13: John Conyers - 28%
    Dist.14: Gary Peters - 15%

    48? 51? 53 percent constitutionally competent?  We KNOW the Democrats have abandoned any allegiance to the constitution, but its truly disturbing how 'our side' has characters that would so willingly disregard the TRUE rule of law.

    Democrat Wields The Hammer Of Government

    It has to happen.

    When the squishy policies of entitlement theory fall from the vine under their own weight, sour grapes soon turn to whine:

    "Rep. Levin Asks I.R.S. To Look Into Mackinac Center

    Questioning whether the Mackinac Center for Public Policy engaged in lobbying activities when it claimed on its tax disclosure forms it did not, U.S. Rep. Sander Levin (D-Royal Oak) has sent a letter to the Internal Revenue Service asking it to review the organization and take "appropriate actions" to ensure it complies with requirements for tax-exempt charitable and education organizations."

    A brick of the finest aged Taleggio to match for the kid that senator Carl used to hide under the stairs.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Fun With Dave And Sandy

    The pressure is on, and the expected deadlock in congress between insane progressives and insane progressive wannabes has them slapping each other with their neckties.

    Dave Camp as part of the Super Committee was set up to fail, and he should have known it.  The debt ceiling being allowed to raise only a part of his problem, the honorable Mr. Camp must face down the bullies in the room as an after effect.  Sander Levin and Dave Camp had a peanut butter on my chocolate moment recently.

    Camp's point drew the ire of the usually mild-mannered Levin. He grabbed the microphone in front of him and turned to his colleague.

    "We can argue ... I'll take back my time," Levin snapped, rapping his hand on the table.

    "Your policies certainly haven't worked very well," retorted Camp.

    "Let's not argue about the policies because I think you're wrong!" snorted Levin.

    "It's a fact!" parried Camp, his voice rising over Levin's. "You promised a 6 percent unemployment rate!"

    At that, Levin slapped the table twice and turned toward Camp.

    "Focus on the unemployed in the state of Michigan!" admonished Levin.

    "I am focused!" Camp replied.

    "You're not!" disputed Levin.

    "Had we not passed the stimulus bill, we'd be better off," Camp pronounced.

    The men stared daggers at one another briefly.

    Then they kissed and made up.

    Whats your farm worth?

    Tags: Republicans Deemocrats, Congress, Farms, Estate Taxes, dave Camp, Sander Levin, HR 4853 (all tags)

    If you have a family farm and land capable of making food to sell, it probably occupies enough space and has value worth more than $3,500,000.  It may not seem like it, but that is not hard to reach even with property values where they are.

    Michigan farm families, short of some performing some creative family planning, barely escaped an amendment tonight that would have required the sale of the stead for payment of taxes when a principle owner dies.  

    The Pomeroy amendment proposed by Sander Levin FAILED with bipartisan support tonight.  It would have made a 45% tax rate for estates over 3.5 million.  This amendment was to be added to the Senate passed bill negotiated by the president.  It failed to pass with a vote of 233-194.

    It ALMOST passed as a voice addition.

    FYI..  Not a single Republican voted for it.

    How can the Democrats claim to represent the middle class when they would creat such a tax that takes from ALREADY TAXED value and keeps middle class families from being able to pass to their heirs.

    Mind boggling.

    Update [2010-12-16 23:59:57 by JGillman]: the tax bill HR 4853 passed at Midnight meaning 2 more years of same tax rates. Not perfect, but ...

    Vote tally at the end 277 yea 148 nay

    ~ Reposted from MTTM ~

    I will let the reader look up the origin of the term, but the meaning is clear.  Michigan has been betrayed by these "representatives."

    Allow me to begin by presenting Michigan's "esteemed" US Senators.

    First we have the "you can't replace me, cause Michigan will lose all that seniority" Carl (the Marx) Levin. Serving in the US Senate Has been Tough on Carl.  His net worth? Carl Levin's net worth was between $1,396,019 and $3,091,000 in 2007, according to Levin's mandated financial disclosure statements. Carl has done well for himself and has graciously accepted any PAC money that comes along to pad his overly abundant war chest.  Carl is a "rank and File Democrat, who voted for Bailouts, Health Care, and Carbon initiatives that have cost this state its manufacturing base.

    Next, we have Debbie (I can feel global warming when I fly) Stabenow, who has the hand of leftist interest so far up her backside, you can see a ring finger when she opens her mouth to speak.  Even the cookie monster's puppetry is more subtle.  The cookie monster is also smarter.  Stabenow's net worth was between $-50,000 and $-15,001 in 2007, according to Stabenow's mandated financial disclosure statements. Nuff said.

    But hey, I get only two Senators to pick on.  Thank you, God.  The remainder of Michigan woes owes a great deal to the following Representatives.

    John Conyers Loses Driver's License

    By Crippy, Section News

    Marxist congressman, John Conyers (MI-14), has lost his Michigan Driver's license because the check he wrote for the renewal fee, bounced.

    From The Hill dot com:

    In addition to Conyers, 11 out of 30 candidates for Congress had marks on their driving record that included 19 speeding tickets, four citations and three suspensions.

    Gross Point Woods businessman John Hauler, a Republican running in the 13th District, was the only other candidate to have his license suspended, the AP found. It was twice suspended after Hauler failed to handle other citations quickly enough. One of the suspensions stemmed from an equipment violation in 2006 and another in September 2009 when he failed to renew his registration on time. The first suspension lasted just 10 days while the second occurred for only four days.

    Two other Michigan candidates had more serious traffic violations on their records. Democrat Pat Miles, who is running in the 3rd District, and Republican John Kupiec in the 5th were ticketed multiple times and eventually received warning letters.

    Rep. Dale Kildee (D-Mich.) was nabbed by Virginia police for wrongfully using a high-occupancy-vehicle lane and Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), who chairs the Ways and Means Committee, has two speeding tickets on his record. Four other Michigan candidates for Congress also have two speeding tickets each on their records: State Rep. Gary McDowell; Republican Tim Walberg, who is running for the seat he lost in 2008; Rep. Gary Peters and Democrat Natalie Mosher.
