  • 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

    "It's a ltttle too little."
    "It's a little too late."
    "I'm a little too hurt."
    "And there's nothin' left that I've gotta say."
    "You can cry to me baby."
    "But there's only so much I can take."
    "Ah, it's a little too little."
    "It's a little too late."

    Unlike Pat Benetar, I still have something to say.

    So who is not-so subtle reminder for?

    It shouldn't be very surprising when you read below the fold.

    End Of the MiGOP?

    Tomorrow's affair may be the last straw

    There is no argument about what pulled together in 2010, the activism necessary to regain majorities in all levels of government.  It was the general repudiation of Obama policies, and in particular; Obamacare, the top down unconstitutional mandate that we purchase something for the privilege of being a US citizen. Citizens already incensed by GW bush's overreach and bailout of banking that should have been allowed to fail, found the agenda of Obama, and the passage of Obamacare particularly motivating to remove the usurpers or any supporters of them from power.

    In Michigan such constitutional stalwarts as Dan Benishek, Dave Camp and a number of other Republicans pledged to remove funding, and doom the takeover of medicine from the lack of operability as a means of last resort if turning over the legislation directly proved impossible.  Dave Camp for his part said so in front of 50+ in the summer of 2010, a fact that could be verified by any of them, and a current staffer of Benishek's who worked for the Ways and Means chair at that time as well.

    Yet only a few days ago, a continuing resolution, funding 98% of the planned spending until September 27th was passed.

    No measure has been discussed from those who in 2010 promised us repeal in SOME form. No line crossed has triggered an absolute response from the Republican controlled congress. In fact, NOTHING but excuses have been the standard talking points as we watched this president make a mockery of the message these men were sent to deliver. And now we must worry about whether 7 or 8 Republicans in the Michigan State Senate will vote for Our state's capitulation to this unacceptable overreach into  our most personal health choices?

    If the lesson of millions of conservatives who sat on their hands in the 2012 presidential contest is ignored, We are in trouble.  If MI Senate Republicans throw away their principles when there is such an opportunity for push-back, there will be little reason to bother with them later.

    Not a threat.  Just reporting the truth.
