Brewed On Grant: Dogged Coverage

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The media coverage and public outpouring over the death of Rocco the police dog was monumental. Indeed, as a big dog lover, I myself drew a cartoon about it. But it does beg the question: where is the same coverage and outcry for random gun violence or homelessness?

Job Killer

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office report on Obamacare says the health law will have an effect on jobs. It does NOT say, as the GOP would have us believe, that it is a job killer. Instead, as this story in the Washington Post points out, Obamacare will allow those who are forced to work simply so they can afford health care to make other choices.

The long-stalled farm bill has finally been passed and it is basically a $1 trillion package of full of subsidies for corporate farmers. So much for less government ... unless you count poor families who had their food stamps cut. Nice going, congress!

Sochi Rights

Written by Rob Rogers on .

As the Sochi Winter Olympics get under way, Vladimir Putin is taking criticism for Russia's anti-gay law. Putin has downplayed the intolerant policy, saying it is just a way to protect the children. Really? Who will protect the children from your bigoted views, Vladimir?
