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.

James Yeager, NFTOS winner of the "Gun Huggers lunatic du jour award", has had his gun permit suspended. Yeager seems fairly arrogant in the first video. He wasn't so happy last night, when he posted yet another video on YouTube, this time with his lawyer, apologizing for his remarks. The apology is presumably so he can be with his loved ones again, his guns.

The first video shows a delusional James Yeager, Dr. Jekyll if you will, still defiant. Besides being a "gun" expert, Yeager would also like us to believe that he is a "Constitutional Law" expert.

Now Mr. Hyde if you will, Yeager with his lawyer below- a more subdued, medicated gun hugger.

The 2nd amendment starts with "A well regulated militia", not "Any idiot can have as many weapons as she/he wants". You can't legally own a surface to air missile, an Apache helicopter, or any number of other weapons of mass destruction. Why is it so unreasonable to make it a little harder for people to buy guns? It's harder to adopt a pet in this country than to buy an assault rifle, and this speaks volumes about Mr. Yeager's rights.

Which Yeager are we more likely to believe, the freak of nature that posted 2 "pack your bag" videos, or the more restrained "checked" lunatic with his lawyer?

Yeager braggingly states in the first video that MSNBC [Ed Shultz] contacted him. Yeager agreed to do the Friday night show, but Ed tweeted: " James Yeager, who threatened to "start killing people" if  issued an executive order, backs out on the ed show.

You gun huggers talk about the 2nd Amendment. Well I heavily believe in the 6th Commandment. God's Laws above Man's Law. I also think that my right to not be shot by some gum hugging second amendment revolutionary - out trumps your right to own and carry a gun! Often the case the adults in the room are the ones who should be allowed to take corrective action, and in the case the lawyer was this very adult.
