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 hosts of The View ridiculed Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli for his push to reinstate the state’s Crimes Against Nature law on Monday, a measure that would make felons out of consenting married couples who engage in oral or anal sex in the privacy of their own homes. The act was struck down by federal courts after Cuccinelli blocked efforts to bring it in line with the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence v. Texas ruling.
“Michael Douglas better stay out of Virginia,” co-host Joy Behar teased, referring to the actor’s claim that he developed throat cancer from performing oral sex. She later joked, “he wants the government on my back and my husband off of it” as the other hosts piled on.

Cuccinelli has long supported restrictions on the sexual behavior of consenting adults and has linked certain acts to homosexuality. “My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They’re intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law based country it’s appropriate to have policies that reflect that,” he told a newspaper in 2009.

He reiterated that view during the first gubernatorial debate against Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe on Saturday, admitting that his extreme anti-LGBT beliefs have not changed. Those positions, however, are now raising concerns from some traditionally Republican business donors, who fear that his extreme views could jeopardize the state’s economic development, and have left the attorney general at a substantial fundraising disadvantage.

So if we are to read the Cooch correctly, he wants the law to reflect "his view" that all sex he considers to be not of his liking to be banned?

The Cooch's "view" is that sex should be used for procreation only, that a man is only to have sex with his wife once a month when she is most fertile.

People are entitled to their views, of course. however, laws should never govern a person's sex life, no matter what someone else's "views" are.
