  • 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

    Tags: 2013-HB-4714, House Roll Call 241 (2013), 2013-HB-4111, House Roll Call 11 (2013), 2011 Senate Bill 693, Senate Roll Call 663 (2012), integrity argument, patronage system, equality of merit, cleaning out closets, causa provocare, Michigan Banana Republican Party, NFIB v Sebelius, U. S. Constitution Amendment X, State Sovereignty, constitutionally-restrained government, Supremacy Clause abuse, illusion of state control, bogus opt-out clause, "bait-and-switch" federal pitch, nullification vs. enabling, legislative malfeasance, liberty-minded network, acta non verba, empowered grassroots operation, sending a message, naming names and identifying targets, heavy-handed bifarceisanship, politician paper training, Rick Snyder, GoverNerd, #OneRoughTurd, Nerd King, Slick Rick, lower house losers, selective focus, 30th Biennial Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, "Mastermind" vs. "Oracle", corinthian scales vs. absolute standard, Reagan's Eleventh Commandment, creeping progressivism (all tags)

    As House Bill 4714 (2013) was rapidly transitioning from "read a second time" to "substitute H-3 adopted and amended" to "placed on third reading" to "read a third time" to "placed on immediate passage" to "passed; given immediate effect" . . . yes, transitioning just that quickly (the proof starts on page 24 of House Journal # 59) . . . I was in conversation with, among others, Dara Bailey (Vice President & National Vetting Director of iCaucus National).  She offered to commit national resources to help the liberty-minded network in Michigan do what needs to be done to visit political punishment on every single legislative turncoat next summer.  All that we need to do as a statewide movement is to use Joanie's screencap of 2013 House Roll Call # 241 as a motivator to set aside our nationally infamous internecine squabbling, and work as a cohesive machine toward a larger goal.
