  • 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.

    Ecxuse Me, Could You Spare Some Exchange?

    Our mitten shaped shire will be begging off the teat of that which has more milk than thou hast. Tis true, a benevolent king hath offered a ransom worthy of consideration and disbursement amongst the villagers. ~

    True to form, It seems Michigan's governor Rick Snyder is all about cronyism.  Up or down. About "partnerships", and complicit deal making with bigger government, and BIGGER business. Big. Big. Big.


    The insurance behemoths that will briefly exist under a 'marketplace' of insurers will likely make a lot of folks quite well-to-do.  Though we should have little problem with entrepreneurial folks and making a buck, it is worth noting it ain't gonna be Joe six pack, but carefully selected recipients of the public's new expense of an insurance exchange.  As this develops, pay careful attention to the 'players', and note that prior to 2010, many of the businesses handling billions in insurance premiums didn't exist.

    Same show. Same suckers. New ringmasters.

    Step. Right. Up.

    And the governor of our state is as-they-say, "all in". He apparently views such matters as one might view a Siamese twin sharing the same heart. So when the poison in the federal government is injected, we all feel the 'euphoria'. From the Detroit News:

    The Michigan health insurance exchange required by federal law got a boost from Washington Thursday with a $30.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for planning and implementation.

    The Michigan Affordable Insurance Exchange will be an online marketplace where insurance firms compete to sell low-cost health insurance to consumers. Gov. Rick Snyder hopes to form Michigan's exchange in partnership with the U.S. A blueprint for the plan is due to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Feb. 15.

    The state is STILL going to be involved, when all we have to do, is say "Go do it yourself". OR, something a little more terse; "f--- ---".
    Michigan last year missed a deadline to try to form its own exchange because Republican legislators saw the move as backing President Barack Obama's 2010 massive health care overhaul.

    You think?  It was the point of not carrying it out of committee.  We don't want it. Its NOT constitutional, no matter what 5 of 9 of the judicial junta at the top says.

    Declare It DOA

    If the Snyder administration wishes to provide the BEST options for Michigan taxpayers and citizens, it should ask the legislature to defy the feds under the 10th amendment.

    "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people."

    Some lawmakers may not understand the power they wield. :
    "I'm very pleased that we are continuing to have an ongoing discussion," said Haines, the chair of the House Health Policy Committee. "It has been very difficult. I don't think it's anybody's fault in Michigan. It's been very difficult to get answers out of Washington."

    Details, including the requirements and the costs to taxpayers, need to be worked out, she said. Still, Haines said she was leaning toward a state-run exchange.

    "We have until Friday," she said. "I've been here all day making phone calls and talking to people. We're all committed to doing what's best for Michigan."

    Then do what is best, and tell the feds to take their mandate and send it back to Europe where it has provided inadequate health options for decades.

    There is no authority given by the constitution to the federal government to force citizens to purchase a product.

    Any product.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Better Choices?

    Governor Snyder has had an opportunity to join with 26 other states in repudiating the destruction of our health care by the liar in chief and a capitulating congress.

    But he has done nothing of the sort.

    And while our attorney general Bill Schuette is supposedly fighting against Obamacare as unconstitutional, we have a Snyder enabler Jim Marleau pushing for the finishing touches on the insurance exchanges.

    The bottom line is that Obamacare requires every citizen to purchase government approved health insurance under penalty of law, beginning in 2014. Key to enforcing the "Individual Mandates," are federally-regulated health insurance exchanges, which will be set up in each state to facilitate the sale of this mandated insurance.

    The law gives states the option to set up an exchange or have the federal government do it for them. Some states (and Legislators) mistakenly believe that if they set up an exchange, they will preserve state control over the exchange. However, Washington bureaucrats will be at the controls regardless of whether the exchange is state or federally established.

    Have REPUBLICAN State Senator Jim Marleau tell the feds to take their crappy mandate and shove it where the prostate test goes.
