  • 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

    Republicans led 'out of the wilderness' by Conservative Unity

    In responding to an article, "Michigan Republicans must look towards the future to win" by Dennis Lennox, posted 4/22/09, I took the opportunity to opine, sharing my own convictions with my fellow Republicans about the overall subject: Using Conservative Unity to lead the party out of the 'wilderness' that's born of divisive politics, demographic pandering, and (I will add here) a perception that we should somehow be ashamed of our heritage as conservatives.

    It was recommended to me that it was worthy of its own post, so here it is as written.  Let us UNITE to win elections. Right and Truth do not 'evolve', rather, handed down from antiquity.

    CLARIFICATION:  Please note that any appearance of 'class-warfare' points are intended to be a criticism of some politicians on the Left.  I do not subscribe to class-warfare arguments in the slightest, but I think such arguments the Left makes against their opponents is much more applicable to themselves; it's how they think.

    Hope Meets the Real World

    It really was quite remarkable. About noon yesterday, after a cloudy, overcast and somewhat gloomy morning, the skies cleared and the sun shined brightly again on northern Michigan. If the birds hadn't packed it all in I'm sure they would have been singing. My favorite begonia was in a full, splendorous, indoor bloom. My dog and my cat held paws.

    Two million citizens, about three quarters of them avowed socialists and anarchists by my guess, trekked to Washington, D.C. (the 51st state) despite all the economic woes brought on by evil capitalists and the adverse travel conditions made even more difficult by the threats of global warming, AIDS, mad cow disease, bird flu, asteroids, malnutrition, Guantanamo, coal, and an unimpeded Dick Cheney with a water board in his back pocket.

    The evil George W. Bush, a man who, it was cautioned, would do anything in his power to remain in power, meekly crawled his way out of the picture, apparently deciding in the last minutes of his ruthless dictatorship to abide by the rule of law. (Rumor has it he was turned down for an arm wrestling match that would have decided the whole ball of wax.) The Kossacks were much relieved. Robert Mugabe uttered "dumb cracker" under his breath. And Barack Obama took the throne.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    A thorough rejection of unity - OR - Climbing the soap box

    It was said on and around inauguration day that the peaceful transfer of power from one man of one party to another man of another party, regardless of his governing philosophy and personal convictions is something unique to our political system and worthy of praise.  All but impossible to lose count early into the morning of said transfer of the number of times men and women from each party, the media, close relations and perfect strangers made the argument, apparently comfortable in their assessment and convinced of its unquestioned validity.

    We want to be gracious, after all, and good sports.  The losing coach always finds his foe at midfield to offer a handshake and congratulations on a "good game."

    I read this one myself on Twitter, on Facebook, on blogs, heard it on the radio, on Fox News, on CNN, on ABC, NBC and CBS, from friends, from family, from clergy, from men and women whose council I have sought and from those who have offered it (sometimes frequently) without request.  

    The philosophy makes some sense.  I understand it intellectually.  The peaceful transfer of power in this nation is something unique in the history of the world.  The supremacy, as Diane Feinstein put it yesterday morning, of the ballot over the bullet is easily and appropriately admirable.  

    In today's culture, where men are more often ruled by their passions and prejudices than by their reason and dependence on natural law, it is easy to see where many would then equate a proper regard for the political wisdom of our founders with a uniquely postmodern, that is, 21st century notion of the "need" upon an electoral setback to offer unarticulated concession and congratulations.

    We risk, though, losing our way and descending quickly and inextricably into the tarry abyss of relativism the longer we surrender our moral clarity and purity of purpose to the sometimes overpowering temptation to appear gracious and united.

    Simply put, unity is not necessarily a virtue.
