  • 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.

    From a few years ago.

    Every couple years a horrendous act occurs spawning the next round of gun control measures from willing sheep throughout the nation.  Dr Suzanne Gratia Hupp explains through her own experience WHY we should not have restrictions on our ability to carry and self defend.

    Her 'lesson' was as tough as any others that have been received recently.

    However she actually learned from it.

    Lies, Damned Lies, and Vote Suppression Allegations

    Promoted for Ruth Johnson mention

    To anyone with whom I've been in regular contact for the past eight months or so, what I'm about to say won't come as a big surprise:  My wife, Christie, is about 33 weeks pregnant.

    I mention that to say this:  I was with my wife in the doctor's office a couple of weeks ago, and the USA Today headline caught my eye.  Evidently, there are some republican controlled state legislatures that are taking steps to crack down on the most dangerous form of fraud in any free society.  Pay attention to the map available from the National Conference of State Legislatures, we'll be referring to it after the break.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Right To Work Statistics - Higher Income!

    Tags: Higher wages, Wyoming, Virginia, Nevada, Florida, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, Texas, Iowa, Louisiana, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Tennessee, RTW, Right To Work, Forced Unionism, Freedom To Work, FTW, Michigan (all tags)

    Often the argument against Right-To-Work laws is a flippant "Oh yeah .. Right to work for less" type of response.  Many of those who say that might actually believe it, but the truth is far different.

    Personal income is higher in Right to Work states

    Yessiree, employees in Right to Work states enjoy higher personal income per capita than in Michigan.

    Per recent census data:

    Wyoming           $48,608
    Virginia                44,224
    Nevada                41,182
    Florida                 39,893
    North Dakota        39,870
    Nebraska             39,150
    Kansas                38,820
    South Dakota       38,661
    Texas                  37,774
    Iowa                    37,402
    Louisiana             36,424
    Oklahoma            35,985
    North Carolina      35,344
    Tennessee           34,976

    Michigan            $34,949

    Right To Work Statistics - Job Creation

    Tags: More Jobs, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Virginia, Nevada, Less Jobs, Michigan, California, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, RTW, Right To Work, Forced Unionism, Freedom To Work, FTW (all tags)

    Regulars know I am pushing for Freedom to work (right to work) in Michigan.  Part of the argument going forward in this state will be to present the data for all to see. For this installment, we look at the top Job creating states versus the bottom.

    Right to Work states lead the nation in creating new jobs (1999-2009)

    1. Texas              +866,000
    2. Florida             +291,600
    3. Arizona            +194,800    
    4. Virginia            +138,400
    5. Nevada            +124,500

    Michigan and other forced unionism states lead the nation in losing jobs (1999-2009)

    1. California        -170,400
    2. Indiana           -225,300
    3. Illinois            -332,700    
    4. Ohio              -508,200
    50. Michigan       -687,600

    Cautiously Optimistic? That Just Went Out The Window...

    Well, it almost has for me anyway.  I'll be frank and to the point with this even though it smacks in the face of today's mollycoddling agenda of discussion.  I honestly don't believe that the Republicans that were overwhelmingly elected to power just two months ago have grasped the core value reason that they were sent to their elected Offices.  That charge was fiscal responsibility.  The taking down the disastrous bird feeder mentality that has infested this once great State over the last eight years of Liberal social net spending, mythical green jobs and to create an environment conducive to business.

    November 2, 2010 was a message from Michigan's electorate that bold steps of reform in Lansing is unequivocally necessary to mend the havoc endured by an unyielding, flawed Left ideology that resulted in the highest tax increases in the history of this state.

    Is that message being carried out by a Republican Majority in the House and Senate?  I don't see it yet...
