  • 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.

    Meet the Fockers.

    AYES: Benishek, Camp, Huizenga, Miller, Rogers, Upton, Walberg

    We've seen the movie before.  Spoiler alert: in this sequel, Paul Ryan and John Boehner lie, and the Marxstream Media prints the lie.  Once again, the Michigan GOP delegation majority has voted with Gary Peters, which is their ongoing endorsement of Gary Peters for U.S. Senate.

    I cannot do much in other congressional districts, however, I am aware of what I can effect in CD-1.

    Congressman Dan Benishek, go f#@% yourself.  With a chainsaw.

    Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, I thank you for voting NO, and voting on Principle.  To that extent, I acknowledge the no vote of this dubious character playing in the Yob-ite propaganda machine.  With same regard, I thank Reps. Conyers, and Levin, for their no votes too.

    Walberg Responds To SCOTUS Decision

    Rep Tim Walberg (R-7) released the following statement after the Supreme Court's decisions on marriage:

    "Today's decisions mean states will continue addressing this issue, but I am troubled by the Court's willingness to allow a district federal court to overrule the people of California who voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman. I remain of the principled belief that marriage should continue to stand for the union of a man and woman. The activist Supreme Court has decided that the desires of adults are more important than the needs of children and the orderly continuance of society. It's also disappointing the Court overruled the Defense of Marriage Act, which passed the legislative branch with bipartisan majorities and was signed into law by President Clinton.  I look forward to having both voters and their elected officials continuing to be engaged on this and many other issues before our democracy."
    Marriage IS between a man and a woman.  


    Because the Queers (Their label not mine) want to play house, adopt children to indoctrinate into their LIFESTYLE and get the benefits normal couples receive, this has been pushed. As for those benefits, our tax dollars being used to encourage a perverse and dangerous lifestyle is troubling.  It violates our freedom of conscience.  With the ruling, comes a claim to federal benefits for same sex couples recognized as being legally 'married'.

    And our REPUBLICAN Governor is not willing to stand up for the state voters' referendum.

    "The decisions just came down and they don't apply to Michigan. So the way I view it is, I'm going to follow what Michigan law is, and I'll keep track of what's going on in the federal courts," Snyder said.
    .. until there is some money provided to make up for benefits of same sex (married) partners.

    Ya know what?  I feel so safe knowing our governor is out there protecting the sovereignty of our state..  Right.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Breaking - RINO Turned Dems Down

    $20,000 wasn't enough for the template of all RINOs to run as a Dem according to sources.

    That was the amount reportedly offered to Schwarz for his campaign on their behalf. From M-Live

    Former Republican Congressman Joe Schwarz said Friday he has decided not to run for the seat now held by Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg.

    Schwarz, of Battle Creek, represented the 7th Congressional District - which includes Jackson County - for one term in the U.S. House and lost to Walberg, of Tipton, in the 2006 Republican primary.

    He had been considering a run in 2012 as a Democrat.

    Because his natural tendencies have always favored failure.

    And even though the story doesn't mention it, he may still run as an Independent.

    Something that ought to make the Democrats even happier if they stop to think about it.

    A Question About The Wall.

    How long should it be up?

    Should it hang until the next election is over? Should we update with fresh scarlet letters from even more recent miserable failures of those who are hanging patiently for all this time? Should we offer a positive spin on their recent accomplishments and then sigh, noting how they really screwed up before, and then point again to the left?

    While waiting for some discussion on this, it should be noted that our concern about the debt ceiling being increased has been vindicated.  We were right, and those guys on the left were not. The trillions they added to the burden our children must carry, cannot be voted away as easily as their tenure in congress.  Experience DOES account for something, but it is not an excuse for repeatedly ducking responsibility, and they are indeed responsible for that fact.

    Good men who screw up need to admit and own up to it, and offer their mistakes as lessons.  Personally, I see genuine contrition as a character building exercise.

    However, I have somehow missed any claims of ownership recently.  Point me to them, and the name comes down.

    Walberg Comments on Debt Ceiling Vote

    Received this.  Usually, I am a great big Walberg supporter.  I really find little love for such short sightedness on such an impactful event. Does the congressman or his counterparts have an absolute limit calculated?  Does he know where this leads us?

    Plan Includes $2.1T in Cuts and a Vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment

    Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Tim Walberg released the following statement:

    "The President with the support of the previous Congress has spent a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus and trillions on a government takeover of healthcare.  In less than a year, this Republican-led House has made significant progress to reverse course. We have passed a budget that cuts more than $38 billion for 2011, the first six spending bills for 2012 that return to pre-bailout, pre-stimulus levels, and the Ryan Budget that will save $5.8 trillion over ten years."

    "Unfortunately, the president and majority in the Senate fail to understand the true meaning of fiscal responsibility, but with the pressure of the American people, we have at least brought them to agree to $2.1 trillion in spending cuts, including two-thirds of the discretionary cuts in the Ryan budget, and a vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment. The plan that passed tonight is one more step that Congress has taken to end the culture of government overspending and rapidly mounting debt.  But this is not the end, and it's clear a true solution will not occur until America has a fiscally responsible president.  I will continue to work to solve our government's debt addiction and encourage job creation so that America can maintain its greatness."


    Somehow I wonder.  Below the line is more information provided by the congressman's office.

    Are you looking for a career change?  A way to broaden your horizons?  Perhaps a house in the burbs (Maryland)would be a really cool addition?

    If you are from Michigan, have a desire to meet a lot of new people and serve your country, NOW is the time.  A few hard workers with soul are needed in the following districts ... uh  well ALL of the following districts except Congressional District #3 which is occupied by Justin Amash:

    "The Budget Control Act trades $21 billion in cuts next year for a debt ceiling increase of $2.1 trillion. That's one penny in cuts for each dollar of new debt. The bill does not seriously address the drivers of the federal government's fiscal crisis. It does not improve entitlement programs.

    "It does not include a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. I cannot in good conscience vote for so little reform when so much is at stake.

    I would personally like to thank Representative Amash for his ability to stand for something bigger than the ability to get in line with what the leader of the house desired.

    Again, the Michigan Republican delegation sans one, failed to perform its duty on the most important vote of their lifetimes.  They missed an opportunity to stand for a permanence of fiscal prudence.

    MICHIGAN DELEGATION VOTE The complete list here

    Clarke, N; Conyers, N; Dingell, Y; Kildee, Y; Levin, Y; Peters, N.

    Amash, N; Benishek, Y; Camp, Y; Huizenga, Y; McCotter, Y; Miller, Y; Rogers, Y; Upton, Y; Walberg, Y.

    As for those Democrats who voted no, they wanted even more from Boehner.  However, this president will take whatever rope he has been given and run with it.

    The ONE chance you had to stop him, and you blew it.

    Walberg Comments on the Budget Control Act

    Tags: Walberg, Congress, Debt, Simple solution, Hell No. (all tags)

    Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Tim Walberg released the following statement about the Budget Control Act:

    "I am acutely concerned for the direction of the country, and the current path of mounting debt for future generations.  I am working to achieve the largest possible spending cuts and long-term deficit reduction and spending reform.

    We have made some significant accomplishments by passing a 2011 Budget that cut $38.5 billion in one year, the Ryan Budget that cut $5.8 trillion in spending over ten years, and the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act.  The president unfortunately repeatedly stands in the way of significant, necessary fiscal reforms.  I believe the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act is the best solution, but I am voting today to continue its basic principles moving forward to find a solution that reduces spending, encourages job creation, and advances a Balanced Budget Amendment."

    OK.  Stop the increases with a simple statement of "Hell No Mr. President."

    C'mon Tim.  Get this Republican delegation committed to another term of support by an intact base. Republicans that allow the debt to increase will face primary challengers in 2012.  Republicans who wish to appease the worst president in the history of the country will capitulate.

    Your call.

    Walberg Challenges Healthcare Mandates

    Governor?  You paying attention?

    Michigan 7th district Congressman Tim Walberg joined with several House colleagues in a press conference to demand a response to a June 2nd letter sent by 33 House members to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.  The letter asked for information on waivers to President Obama's health care law, including details on the number and types of waivers denied and pending, as well response time to waiver requests.

    In his comments, Congressman Walberg cited the recent hiring spree by McDonald's Restaurants, which has been exempted from the health care law, as an example how businesses can flourish and expand when not subject to onerous federal mandates.

    He says:

    "When you are not under the gun of the ObamaCare mandates, you can hire employees.  We ought to give that same opportunity to other employers around this nation."

    Indeed.  RESTORE that <strike>opportunity</strike> RIGHT to operate your business as you see fit.
