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. 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

A pregnant woman is just a "host" that should not have the right to end her pregnancy, says Virginia State Sen. Steve Martin, (Tea Bagger) who wrote in a Facebook rant defending his anti-abortion views. [...]
"I don't expect to be in the room or will I do anything to prevent you from obtaining a contraceptive," Martin wrote. "However, once a child does exist in your womb, I'm not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child's host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn't want it."

Martin is a person-hood advocate who invokes, that a "host" loses her person-hood the minute the sperm and the egg hook up. This doesn't bode well for the "host" in Virginia.

If you're in Virginia like me, then this mouth breather [Martin] is one of the people in charge of our laws, which is exactly why Virginia RWNJ's concoct shit like mandatory ultrasound laws - and is a partial explanation for why Ken Cuccinelli was not seen by fellow pasty white Virginia Republicans as hopelessly nuts. We voted this asshat out [Cuccinelli], but the amount of right wing nut jobs is never ending.  It would appear to a logical thinking human that these lunatics are practically cloning themselves.

Congratulations Virginia State Senator Steve Martin, you are today's worst person in the world!
