  • 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

    "just give them a pill" or something like that.

    Medical device manufacturer Stryker of Kalamazoo layoff of 1000 workers is because of Obamacare according to the Weekly Standard:

    " Late last week a Stryker spokesperson told me that Obamacare will cost the company fully 20 percent of its total research and development investments."
    Huh. But but Rick?

    What might you think about it?

    " I don't think it's the right answer. However, it is the law of the land, and the real question is: What can we do to make it a positive for Michigan?"
    Oh right. Positive.

    Just suck it up and play nice while the nice man in the whitehouse showers our Great Lakes State with golden raindrops.

    Ye Sow - So Shall Ye Reap

    Just a reminder of the unintended[?] consequence of health care manipulation and control by big government.

    While we are talking in other stories on RightMichigan.com about compacts and severability, the 3000 plus pages of Frankenstein legislation we tenderly call "Obamacare" is rife with triggers, taxes and penalties.  One of the taxes callously affecting a part of the very superior medical care we enjoy.  Manufacturing. The part that is being transformed into a memory operated by billionaire and progressive Jon Stryker:

    "Stryker, a maker of artificial hips and knees based in Kalamazoo, Mich., announced in November that it would slash 5 percent of its global workforce (an estimated 1,000 workers) this coming year to reduce costs related to Obamacare's taxes and mandates."

    Those "global workers" are likely more expensive here.

    I wonder if Mr. Stryker feels conflicted about his support of progressive causes, and relationship with leftists, and the money making business side which provides not only a comfortable living, but real high paying jobs?

    I'll bet he doesn't complain too much.

    If he did, he wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
