  • 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

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    Tags: SB-909, Public Act 387 of 2012, Sen. Tom Casperson, Gov. Rick Snyder, look at all of that republican support for higher taxes, where did all of the democrats go in the end?, Another taxpayer ripoff, Escanaba is nowhere near Detroit...so what gives? (all tags)

    Where do I begin on this one?

    Republicans on the state and federal level have always had this bi-polar, if not downright neurotic attitude towards adhering to what they claim publically to believe in.

    They tell us to our face that they support people keeping more of that they have earned, yet when given the chance to prove it, they steal from us what we have worked so hard to earn for because of...

    ...well, I'm not sure?

    Just last week in Washington, we've have "conservative" republicans flat-out ignore any spending cuts whatsoever and instead just raise our taxes to address the self inflicted "fiscal cliff". Not even two days later, republicans pass a pork-laden "aid" package.

    On the plus side those Alaskan Fisheries will now be able to rebuild from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.

    Who can forget last year in Michigan the income tax hike no one wanted (but the governor and the leadership in the legislature made damn sure would be approved)?

    Or when Lansing decided that it was best to steal from seniors pensions.

    Oh, the good times republicans reading this post are musing to themselves.

    Well, like Al Jolson used to say, "You ain't heard nothing yet!"

    What until you read about the latest republican scam to shake down hard working Michigan Taxpayers.

    My dear friends, we gather here today to mourn the passing of a good, loyal and stalwart friend of Michiganians. It has looked over us. Watched over us and protected us. But in the end, too many of us were not here when it needed us the most.

    It has been often said that "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

    Sadly, that lack of vigilance is all that was required for those forces allied against us, to take from us, that which we held most dear.
