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,CNN and Andy 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 BULLY PULPIT SPEAKS


According to the National Gun Huggers ASS [NRA], guns don't kill people, Mortal Kombat kills people.! What a bunch of asshats, literally!

It's a special kind of tea bagger logic when the solution to stopping children from becoming victims of gun violence is to have them guarded by people with guns.

It's a special kind of tea bagger logic when the solution to stopping people from becoming victims of gun violence is to remove video games and movies which feature violence from circulation.

Other first world countries don't have guards at every school. They have the same movies and the same video games.

So, one would assume the NRA is saying that people who are deranged, evil, and possessed by voices and driven by demons....... are only found in America?

Kudos, Mr. LaPierre, you have proven yet again that The American Taliban is dumber than a box of rocks.



According to statistics from 2009-2010, there are approx 99,000 public schools in the nation. If you only hire one armed guard for each school, and you only pay them 30K a year in salary, that's three billion in salary costs alone. Not counting benefits and administrative costs, not counting the obvious need for more than one officer in most schools, and not taking into account that it's an unrealistic idea to begin with.


PROTESTERS AT NRA PRESS




It was hard to tell at times whether Wayne LaPierre was serious or has become a spectacular performance artist, making a dramatic statement about the absurdity of the NRA's increasingly twisted worldview.

National Gun Huggers ASSociation [NRA] and Wayne LaPierre today's worst group/person in the world!
