- News From The Other Side
- 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.

Happy belated Sequestration Day to all my loyal readers! Did you feel different when you woke up today? No? You will. Not in days, but in just a few short weeks many of us will feel the discomfort [GOP bowel movement] imposed on us by the lunacy that is the tea bagger. For information, we are now the closest we will ever get to actually shrinking the federal budget, that is until the zombie apocalypse comes.
The sequester was set up so that nobody would realistically in their right mind accept it, guess what, the idiots from tin foil land hat land excepted it.
Rachel Maddow opened her show last night using an extended metaphor to connect natural disasters and huge storms to political storms [taking a page from the weather channel]. Rachael argued that including last nights debacle [the sequestration coming into effect], there have now been five separate political “crap storms” in D.C. since the teapublicans took the reigns, or the keys to the House in 2011.

The GOP, the party of seething hatred, the party of petty resentment, the party of mass violent psychosis, and domestic terrorism, has failed us all miserably! We used to be a country who refused to negotiate with terrorist, now these domestic terrorist [American Taliban] won't negotiate with us.
Can we now make this a National Holiday? Why not I say, according to all the tripe coming from the American Taliban, this cut in the growth of spending means that hundreds of thousands are already going to have to be furloughed anyway.
