  • 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.

    We figured we would find a picture of Obama visiting the white house when Reagan was president.

    But alas, we couldn't.  It occurred to us that at THAT time he was working with some seasoned terrorists trying to figure out how to do great damage to it.

    We are thankful for the 22nd amendment.

    Happy thanksgiving folks!

    Dr. Dan speaks out.

    WASHINGTON, DC:  Dr. Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement after the Obama Administration announced its plan to pursue sweeping new gun control measures:

    "Law-abiding gun owners in Northern Michigan should not have their Second Amendment rights restricted because of the actions of criminals that are determined to hurt innocent people.  We cannot allow our Constitutional rights to be eroded to achieve a false sense of security.

    While I believe we need to have a national conversation about violence, our society's values, and the state of mental health care in this country, I don't think the President's plan to take guns out of the hands of responsible people is the answer.  Guns are not the problem, evil people are.  The only thing these proposed restrictions would do is prevent law-abiding individuals from protecting their homes, children, and businesses.

    The Administration has also stated it intends to sidestep the legislative branch to implement its new gun control measures without the approval of Congress.  That is unacceptable.  The American people deserve to have this debate done the right way--in the open and with the consent of their elected representatives."



    Impeachment is an option.  Put all the damn cards on the table.

    NOT just for this effort.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Will Glenn Beck Hurt A21 Education?

    Let us entertain you.

    The Romans did just that.

    During some of the worst times and under questionable government , Romans were entertained, given food, and kept subservient through all manner of sociological bribery and extravagance. "panem et circenses", as described by period satirist Decimus Junius Juvenalis, (Juvenal) describing the social distractions as "Bread and Circuses".  One could find a number of similarities between the Romans and ourselves as our society engages on its natural path of entropy.  Especially considering the mass distractions of Rome and our era, a few of those similarities are certainly clear, and people are still essentially the same.

    Titillation and free stuff is a great way for government to avoid being held accountable for its ongoing failings.

    Through 'gladiator' sports such as football, NASCAR or boxing, the excitement easily overcomes what might be the boring responsibility of eternal vigilance.  Movies that demonstrate very real violent performances of the most graphic kind, to the mildly or more severe pornography certainly satiate a number of other necessary diversions.  As a bonus, movies can serve to propagandize watchers in a way not available when the lions tore Christians limb from limb.  If we look, many of us might see in ourselves the very same lust for excitement through the actions of others, and the danger or reward they face or receive.

    Continued below the fold

    We have a fight on our hands.

    I think for once, the threat of a packed and organized Grand Traverse County commission chamber is a reality.  This time its not about a failed septage system, bicycle paths, or a grant to the money pit of the day.

    It is about a simple resolution.

    Its about a statement, a reiteration, and a declaration, that there are some people who still have a sense of why so many fought for their independence(and ours as well). That reminder that we have not lost the will to abide by the rule of law. Law established to protect us from the overreaches often brought about "for our own good" and the desires for power over our fellow man.

    It is a resolution I am presenting in support of Freedom To Work for the state of Michigan.  

    It is a transparent and open leverage of opinion that has no binding end, yet sufficiently threatens those who would hold the leash to our state's work force. The resolution is opinion only, yet its call to put away the whip speaks loudly enough to have them organize an opposition "Rally." This memo sent out to the local Democrat party faithful:

    "This is totally unacceptable and we have to make our voices heard.  Please help us pack the room with strong union supporters. We need to send them the message that we will not tolerate this type of activity in Grand Traverse County."
    A declaration of freedom was once upon a time considered "unacceptable" as well.

    How appropriate it is, that this would be an issue on a weekend where so many of us celebrate the independence declared by our nation's founders, as a resolution. One that is opposed by those forces who prefer to have no accountability, no real representation to the people they claim to serve. Those who would prefer to not allow a declaration of choice.  Those who want no limit to their role in attempts to control what we do for a living, what we make, who we work for, and would insist that the wage we make, (their persistent argument) could not be sufficient solely created by our own efforts.

    Exporting Christmas

    ~ Cross posted from MTTM ~

    It seems every time the good ol US of A comes up with a really great idea, it's value is seen by some as something to capitalize on, so that added regulatory measures and profit siphoning processes are added by government, tools of government, or users of government.  And certainly, when we do something in this country, it is decidedly big enough that it has its process duplicated by those who think they can compete with us, and because of the siphoning, it usually isn't too hard.

    As many know, I make my living wholesaling CCTV products that come from a variety of countries, but only a few from the US.  I have a decent business relationship with overseas based firms that 30 years ago could not have been possible.  I respect the ability to import, and I support the competitive nature even in the face of purposefully devalued foreign currency and living conditions.  The opportunity for people to compete in some manner sometimes requires this, and what happened during our own industrial revolution now gives hope to even the poorest in nations that seemingly would not have ever had such happenings.

    Rugged capitalism gives opportunity to those who are willing to WORK for it.
