  • 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.

    Just Brimming With Confidence Now That The "Super Committee" Is Here

    Rep. Upton maintaining his Republicratic wing values creds with hinting at increased

    But in an hour-long discussion Wednesday with Kalamazoo Gazette reporters and editors, Upton declined to offer specifics of how the committee might close the current $1.3 trillion gap between federal revenues and expenditures.

    Asked if revising the tax code to produce a net gain in federal revenues would violate the anti-tax pledge signed by Upton and the five other Republicans on the committee, Upton responded: "I don't know."

    Still, talking about ways the tax code might be changed, Upton used the example of how General Electric was able to avoid paying federal taxes in 2010.

    "At the end of the day, I do expect to see tax reform that is bipartisan," he said.

    In fact, Upton on Wednesday repeatedly stressed the need for bipartisanship, in sharp contrast to the anti-tax Republican rhetoric that fueled the showdown this summer that led to the committee's creation.

    So, good old Upton, Camp and Hensarling sitting on the "Super Committee" are already laying the groundwork for a Norquist ploy as way to evade finger pointing on new taxes that Democrats love.

    Bipartisan, of course.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    No.  I didn't make that up.  That is the egocentric propaganda that greets you on Upton's 'spotlight' bio from his Lefty coalition.  Anyway, on to common threads of the elected 'Ruling Class' taking us all on a ride down the potholed road to serfdom.  Pay particular attention to Mark Matson at roughly 1:30 into this.

    Indeed, all bailouts are immoral.  Matter of fact, they're nothing more than a subversion of our Bankruptcy Law.  So, Lord Frederick Stephen Upton, the smartest and most hard working, what says you about this debt ceiling 'bailout' scheme?

    While At It... Let's Thank Rep. Fred Upton Again Too!

    Believe it or not, with lake living and fantastic weather, I let slip the vote last Tuesday to repeal Fred Uptons' incandescent light bulb ban.  Well, here it is.  Predictably, it failed.  233-193.  10 alleged Rs voted to keep Fred Uptons' Nanny State job killing $50 curlique light bulbs and opposed your pathetically executed right of choice.

    Michigan's Reps. and how they voted to repeal Fred Uptons' ban.

    Yeas:  Amash, Benishek, Camp, Huizenga, McCotter, Miller, Rogers, Upton, Walberg

    Nays: Clarke, Conyers, Dingell, Kildee, Levin, Peters

    Just remember this line of crap next election CD-6...

    "It was never my goal for Washington to decide what type of light bulbs Americans should use," Upton admits now.

    CD-6 voters, please, prove to the rest of the state that you're not as dumb as these voters, and give Fred Upton the boot in 2012 too.

    Also take note people... Fred Upton couldn't even be bothered to cosponsor H.R.2417 this go around.  I don't expect for this to leave Upton's Committee anytime soon again.  Maybe if enough fires under a$$es in DC an attachment?  Time will tell.

    Other than that.  Thank you to my Rep. Benishek, and all the other Reps. that voted to repeal.  But, not you Fred, you didn't earn anything.  If it weren't for you, my Rep wouldn't be wasting time on your disgusting overreaching RINO Green agenda.  Moderate fool.
