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.

The countdown to the apocalypse is on.

We’re just hours away from Dec. 21, 2012, the date that the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar allegedly marked as the end of an era that would reset the date to zero and signal the end of humanity.

With the end of the world just hours away, what will I decide for the last supper?

So much to do and such little time. The boss is worried about which meetings I shall attend tomorrow, I tell him no worries the world is ending. He didn’t see the humor – but I was being quite serious.

When the world ends, do I bend over and kiss my sweet ass goodbye? Do I worry about clean underwear? Do I ask the neighbors to keep an eye on the house while I am away? Do I stop the mail from being delivered? Do I turn off the water running to the crib? Do I make my bed? What should be my first words to GOD, “thanks for creating GOPers, we needed the laughs”? What I should I wear to the pearly gates? Are shorts and a t-shirt acceptable for judgment day or is this a black tie affair?

Have a great evening readers and we will see you all tomorrow.

Roger West
