  • 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

    A Short Political Biography

    By JGillman, Section News

    For Dennis Lennox. And maybe some things you could really care less about.

    As Lennox goes on a personal campaign to destroy Decorated Veteran Dave Agema, the credibility he carries with some folks needs to be put back in check. A little background on this guy is in order.

    First off, Lennox is no dummy. He is a little queer, (Odd, but I reserve that the matching definition could be that of the reader's own thoughts) but he knows the political game better than most children his age. In fact, a little better than many who have been in the Republican party for some time, as he plays THEM so well. He is a CMU grad or some such thing, and was vice president at one time of the Young Americans for freedom, a group that was once sanctioned (and relieved by the administration)for anti-homosexual chalkings prior to a veterans support event. It was rumored the chalkings were an attempt to drum up 'news' by SOMEONE in that YAF chapter. It made national news, and attention was given. A lot of attention.

    Almost as much as the fabled attacks by university officials while doing the Gary Peters video taping thing, at one point earning him a label of "mentally unstable and a potential "campus shooter" because of his aggressive, in your face tactics". Which was false, and drew the ACLU to his side, yet was likely a label he sought. It also made national media.

    Lennox went to the 2008 RNC event in MN as an alternate delegate. I was there as well. On the way in during one session he happened to be walking up the same route on the outside of the security fences. Along that route, was every national leftist blogger in the US. He made it a point to stop and announce himself to quite a few of of them. to make sure THEY know who he was and gave them 'official' interviews as a Republican going in.

    At that time of course, he had other things going on as well that would add to his 'national persona'.

    The Fountainhead

    As one of those who think that traditional newspapers still have a place in small towns, from a forum and accountability perspective I have made the offer to salvage one particular fish wrapping.

    The Traverse City Record Eagle is one of those papers that persist in perpetuating the belief that the news is slanted, and editorial bias is more important than actual news.  The editorial page is even worse with frequent attacks and letter limitations that would make the casual observer think this is a leftist community; a non truth if ever there was one.

    One of the results seen in a community that is still conservative, and mostly traditional, is that the profitability of such enterprise can be lessened to a degree which puts it continuing viability in peril.  The Record Eagle has become a leftist blog, as partisan and unreasonable as any out there.  It is poised to attack opinions as soon as they are uttered, as long as those opinions don't jibe with their ideological perspective.

    I am, as always concerned about collateral damage to a community that has such firepower, loose, and uncontrollable.  Not from a censorship perspective, but one that recognizes the bullying done, and how it will in the end do a disservice to the community, and the owners who expect profitability from their acquisition.

    On January 19th, I offered my services to Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., (CNHI) which owns this paper.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    RightMichigan.com In Blogging Article

    By JGillman, Section News

    In an article "Bandwidth by the barrel", Nancy Derringer of Bridge Magazine [more than] casually mentions our community.

    One Quote:

    "While the collection of regular bloggers at Right Michigan represents a wide spectrum of political opinion, Gillman said he is interested in policing the principles the party stands for.

    "There are groups called No Labels, who don't want anyone to stand for anything," he said. "That's not us. We want to know what people are about. I can't do an investigation on every single character in play. But if someone is a bad actor, (who) says they're for fiscal sanity and then votes for another trillion in debt, we're going to call them on it. Voting for a debt limit increase gets you on a wall of shame."

    Yep.  Hard love.

    We aren't here to bash the R's, but rather keep them from driving into the ditch along with the Demoncrats and moderate train wrecks who have wreaked havoc on this state for too many decades.

    The point?  Stand for something.

    Feel the love.

    Now this is unbelievable. A couple of Marines decided to treat a few dead Taliban terrorists to a good old fashioned "golden shower."

    News to chew on..

    By JGillman, Section News
    Posted on Mon Nov 22, 2010 at 07:38:15 AM EST
    Tags: News, Dangerous Cities, Detroit, Manoogian, Debbie Stabenow, Agriculture, David Nolan, Libertarians, Monday. (all tags)

    Happy Monday folks..  OK, now get over that feeling.

    Many of the conservatives on this site are familiar with David Nolan.  Nolan, the inventor of the 'Worlds Smallest Political Quiz' was also one of the principle founders of the Libertarian Party. Nolan died yesterday at the age of 66.

    Many of you might also be familiar with Kwame Kilpatrick.  It seems another brave stripper has decided to take her chances with new testimony as a new witness saying the rumored Manoogian party happened.

    And if you haven't caught the news, we have a new Michigan based airline?? (Shameless plug for some creative endeavors that might work) Over at MTTM.

    Why does the term 'Inmate running the asylum' come to mind when I hear that Debbie Stabenow now runs the agriculture committee in the US Senate?  Note the reference of FOOD to FUEL in her comment..  sigh..

    Detroit? Losing your shine as most dangerous city already..  I guess with the population falling faster than slim shady's popularity, it had to happen. Flint closing in FAST!

    Stay tuned.
