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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Old people get money for treatments and such, far more than children do, so Bill Maher had just one question for them: “why are they the angriest people politically?” Maher got a bit too graphic in talking about the various ways these old folks are getting it on to make the point that the government pays for them to at least “go out with a bang.”

Maher said the reason more tax dollars go to grandma is “because she votes and young people don’t.” And that’s how you end up with millions of dollars in taxpayer money spent on penis pumps. And as Maher put it, old folks are “fucking like rabbits” and now STDs in seniors have tripled because “70 is the new 69, and the old folks home is the new freshman dorm.”

And so that’s how Maher got around to the big question: “why are they the angriest people politically?” He said, “You’re getting all the money and half the pussy!” And, on top of that, “you’re lucky enough to be in a country that will keep you hard until you’re stiff.”
