Support mental health or I’ll kill you
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 7:01 am

from Powerline

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the bumper sticker proclaiming Support mental health or I’ll kill you, but Vice President Biden is adapting the bumper sticker approach to promoting Obama’s so-called jobs (i.e., Son of Stimulus) bill. Biden suggested last week in Flint, Michigan that more rapes and murders could occur if the bill is not passed. Biden reiterated his warning in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Biden’s approach to promoting Obama’s bill hasn’t elicited the attention or the mockery it deserves. Perhaps it has a grain of truth in its favor. Considering the bill’s union supporters, you never know. But as Biden himself might say: Come on, man. The Democrats’ original so-called stimulus bill of 2009 must have prevented an epidemic of pillage, plunder and rapine.

Shouldn’t the Democrats be claiming credit? Apparently not. A trillion dollars later, murder and rape continue to rise in Flint, according to Biden. Another half trillion of walking around money is called for if Flint is to maintain.

Jason Mattera is the author of Obama Zombies and the editor of Human Events. He is also an indomitable ambush interviewer. Jason caught up with Biden to follow up on Biden’s deep thoughts regarding the so-called jobs bill. “Don’t screw around with me,” Biden warned him.

Don’t screw around with him, or what? That’s where familiarity with the old Support mental health bumper sticker really comes in handy.

NFL enjoys record TV ratings despite Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson scandals (Shutdown Corner)


NFL TV ratings on the rise despite domestic violence fumble (Reuters)
By Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Americans are tuning into NFL football in greater numbers than last year, according to early season viewership figures, signaling the league's fumbled handling of domestic violence cases has not dented its overall popularity.

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys, please rise (Shutdown Corner)
Let's be serious for a moment here. And I have to kick the really over-the-top crazy Dallas Cowboys fans out of the room now so we can have a real conversation. OK, good. Now ... what in the heck is going on in Dallas? Look, you didn't see this coming, I didn't see this coming, nobody did. But now there's no getting around it: The Dallas Cowboys look good. They look great. Had Tony Romo not made some big Week 1 mistakes against the 49ers, they might be 4-0 with some quality wins. I just don't know how we got here. The Cowboys didn't add much in the offseason, and the defense lost Jason Hatcher, DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee. Romo was coming off back surgery. They've been the epitome of mediocre for years. All of a sudden, they're good. Logically, it makes little sense. Sunday night's dominant win over the Saints was their statement that they're for real. Now, "for real" comes and goes in the NFL in 2014 as quickly as Jon Gruden compliments a mundane play on "Monday Night Football." Teams look great one week and incompetent seven days later. Nothing is permanent. But right now, the Cowboys deserve a huge bump up the rankings. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would get my coach of the year vote at this point. He has been that good. The Cowboys' offense has reinvented itself by building around DeMarco Murray and a great run-blocking offensive line. They deserve all the credit you can give them. I guess that's the beauty of the NFL. Things that are completely unforeseen can actually happen. We're seeing it in Dallas. Here are the post-Week 4 power rankings: 32. Oakland Raiders (0-4, LW: 31) Head coach Dennis Allen got fired, and general manager Reggie McKenzie can't be far behind. Remember, they have the oldest roster in the NFL. Bad, bad, bad. 31. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4, LW: 30) No one player is going to totally turn this team around, not even a huge upgrade at quarterback. They're just not good at all. But they're also very young and you'd assume they'll improve as this season goes on. 30. Washington Redskins (1-3, LW: 28) Or maybe I was right to be skeptical of Kirk Cousins. 29. Tennessee Titans (1-3, LW: 23) How in the world did they look so good at Kansas City in Week 1? That's the weirdest result of the NFL season so far, right?

NFL player Belcher likely had brain damage, post-mortem exam shows (Reuters)
