  • 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

    Bentivolio: Avoid Syrian Conflict

    Michigan Republican Kerry Bentivolio (CD-11) makes a compelling argument to refrain from involvement in Syria.

    Bentivolio, a veteran, understands the stakes, and openly asks what our interests truly are:

    "What has been happening in Syria is truly a human tragedy. The nation has been torn apart by civil war. Tens of thousands have either lost their lives or been driven from their homes. It is without a doubt that Assad is not a friend of ours.

    However, it has also been made clear that those who oppose him have direct ties to al-Qaeda. Whoever wins this war will not be affectionate toward the United States.

    What, then, is "our interest guided by justice" as it relates to involving ourselves in the Syrian fight? In other words, what is the objective of any American mission?


    I think the Secretary of State is confusing national honor with the president's ego. A few months ago, The New York Times reported that President Barack Obama drew a "red line" in the case of a chemical attack in Syria in an "off-the-cuff" statement that "defined his policy in a way some advisers wish they could take back." This was recently buoyed by the fact that a member of the president's military counsel leaked that the White House only wants the attack to be "just muscular enough to not be mocked." Embarrassment, not justice, seems to be the motivating factor for an attack.

    Any Republican OR Democrat willing to subject this nation to an additional conflict and understands this is a fool.

    Thank you Congressman Bentivolio. (Read the complete statement)

    Michigan US Representative Candace Miller (R-10) makes it clear that the president needs to clearly state the US' National Interests at Stake in Syria.

    There are times where we disagree with the Representative, however we must applaud her for an appropriate position on this matter.

    With everyone focused on domestic policy, a little food for thought.

    Oh, and that whole #Occupy thing?  It's rather "all the rage" as the adage goes...
