Brewed On Grant: Conflict Kitchen

Written by Rob Rogers on .

If you are not familiar with Conflict Kitchen, it is worth checking out. The food is great and the presentation makes you think. It makes you question why we are in conflict with certain regions of the world. Even if you don't agree with what they are presenting, it is a creative expression of free speech that should be championed. Sadly, some people think the First Amendment only applies to speech that does not criticize Israel.

Victory Lap

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The Republicans have been talking a lot about compromise and working together now that they own both houses of Congress. I think it's all just for show and the gridlock will be back with a vengeance once the honeymoon is over, but the Tea Party is not happy about all this talk of compromise and bipartisanship.

Obama Bourbon

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Mitch McConnell, who famously crowed in 2010 that his first priority would be to make Obama a one-term president, will now be the Senate Majority Leader. Obama said last week he would be more than happy to sit down with Mitch McConnell and have a bourbon. Can't wait to see that.
