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.

God Wrote The Constitution?

Tom Delay, that bastion of sound political commentary, crawled out from under his rock long enough to toss some republican Jesus bullshit into the news cycle and further confuse already confounded and ignorant conservatives.


DeLay said that Americans have forgotten "that God created this nation [and] that He wrote the Constitution, that it's based on biblical principles," but he is also optimistic that the tide is beginning to shift, noting that when he was in Congress, he sealed off the rotunda in the Capitol building so that leaders from Congress could come together for three hours to get on their knees and seek the face of God.

If God indeed write the constitution, the why prey tell did it need amending? For Tom's sake, maybe we can clear it up, based on Biblical principles.

God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.

Men wrote the US constitution, and did it with the express intention of not allowing this country to be a theocracy.

Why this asshole isn't in an orange jumpsuit putting nuts and bolts in a bag for twenty cents a day at some for profit prison created by his best friends is proof that god does not exist in this world.

To Tom DeLay I say: "nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Congrats Tom, you are today's asshat of the day!
