Your blogger

When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

In less than 12 hours my fellow Virginian's shall be voting in the mid-term elections.
A few heated seats are up for the taking. The Virginia Beach Republican running for office against Glenn Nye (Democrat) slams B-ROCKS stimulus plan. Mr. Rigell for US Congress contravenes the plan. Yet part of the plan was "cash for clunkers', to which Mr. Rigell is a automotive dealer whom took 400,000 dollars of the cash for clunkers program! Can we say hypocrite?

In my region we get Krystal Ball (yes we agree sounds like a porn actress name) who is running in Virginia's 1st congressional district election, 2010. While her platform is strong she has zero experience in politics. Her opponent Rob Whittman will more than likely win the seat.

In National political news, the masses have spoken early. ABC announced that it would entertain " subject matter expert analysis" from "real time" voting tomorrow. Andrew Breitbart CEO of extreme right wing ideology (and the concoctor of the Shirley Sherrod video) and his minion Dana Loesch where to be at best "biased commentators" for the struggling ABC news. ABC in the last 48 hours has been bombarded with American's calling for Andy to be removed, and removed he was. If you visit any Brietbart internet site his few followers (less than 100 comments on his personal blog) claim censorship, treason, and outright rage at their leader being ousted from his "analysis gig.

Hispanic President of the Republican-affiliated Latinos For Reform has been seen on various MSM (mainstream media) outlets coercing fellow Hispanics to not vote, and today he admitted that he voted in Virginia by absentee ballot. (Hipsanic vote

Sara Palin has been quoted as saying that no one is "fit to tie Joe Miller's combat boots". HUH! Last time we looked the Messiah died many moons ago, and Joe Miller is no Messiah. She also claims that MSM is conspiring against Joe Miller.

A pot and kettle moment here for Joe and Sarah, as Joe the 'corrupt bastard" himself admitted to lying about usage of Government computers. What Miller did, according to his admissions, "was getting onto the computers of co-workers, going to the Joe Miller website, and then voting as others on a Miller poll on whether the Republican party should dump state chairman Randy Ruedrich.". His superiors admonished him for his behavior but also acknowledged that Miller had been under considerable stress. An email from Miller also contained in the records stated ""I acknowledge that my access to others' computers was wrong, participating in the poll was wrong, lying was wrong, and there is absolutely no excuse for any of it."

The endless string of fruit loops from the party of tea bags is never ending. From Ohio, to New York, from Nevada to Alaska. Delaware to Connecticut, from candidates whom disseminate bestiality videos, to Ohioan's dawning Nazi re-enacting uniforms, to candidates who believe that mice with fully functioning brains roam terra firma.

Because the founding documents of America do not align with your ideology, doesn't mean amending them and re-writing them are options. There not!

POTUS' analogy is spot on. We have had a car driven by the right. Bush and Cheney where by the worst to occupy the seats since the inception of these offices. Do we want too, and can we really afford too place our country in jeopardy that the right once had us in?

The moderate Republican died a few years ago, and we are left with the afterbirth of gun toting, white supremacist, save the rich-screw the poor mentality.

Bi-partisanship, will cease to exist as we know it under a tea bag regime, the "tan man" (John Boehner) has made that very clear. Can we as a country really absorb the "establishment" of the extreme right?

In case you missed Olbermann's depiction of "tea bag society" below is a nineteen minute video of tea bags running for office, and their less than coherent stances on America.

NFTOS has posted over 98 blogs castigating, vituperating, denunciating, the extremist right. 98 blogs proving discrediting, quashing, exposing, negating, shooting holes in the ideology that is "the lunatic fringe" of a "right "Government.

Voting is a method for a group such as a meeting or an electorate to make a decision or express an opinion—often following discussions, debates, or election campaigns. It is often found in democracies and republics. In a representative government, voting commonly implies election: a way for an electorate to select among candidates for office. In politics voting is the method by which the electorate of a democracy appoints representatives in its government.

A vote is an individual's act of voting, by which he or she expresses support or preference for a certain motion, a certain candidate, a selection of candidates, or a political party.

Modern political science has questioned whether average citizens have sufficient political information to cast meaningful votes. We hope that we have given you enough erudition to make a choice that best suits you.

Suffrage, political franchise, or simply the franchise is the civil right to vote, or the exercise of that right.

" We live in hard times, not end of world times", two parties polarized by hate for each other is never more venomous than today. More so for the right as the anger by the tea party is always prevalent in MSM.

Despondent as it is, that two comediennes have to show us how truly out of keel our society is when it comes to politics.

We repeatedly hear how "unsustainable" things in our country are. Certainly America is "unsustainable" under a tea bag regime.

Exercise your right to vote!
