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.

Ravens bracing for Rice absence (The SportsXchange)
The Baltimore Ravens are still waiting to hear from the NFL regarding a potential suspension for running back Ray Rice following a felony aggravated assault case this offseason. Rice was involved in a domestic violence incident with his wife at an Atlantic City casino. The NFL has yet to rule on his status for the season, but a potential multigame suspension is expected. "It's not my decision to make, or any of us here," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

Ravens look forward, not backward at training camp (The Associated Press)
Not much has gone right for the Baltimore Ravens in the 17 months since they won the Super Bowl. After defeating the San Francisco 49ers to claim their second championship, the Ravens sputtered to an 8-8 finish in 2013 and missed the playoffs for the first time since coach John Harbaugh took over in 2008. During the past offseason five players were arrested - most notably running back Ray Rice, who is awaiting word on a possible suspension for allegedly assaulting his fiancee in Atlantic City. Harbaugh and the Ravens will attempt to put all that behind them this summer at training camp.

(The Sports Xchange) - A day after Tony Dungy was largely skewered for saying he would not have drafted openly gay linebacker Michael Sam, the former NFL coach clarified his comments and provided context. "I was not asked whether or not Michael Sam deserves an opportunity to play in the NFL. "I was not asked whether his sexual orientation should play a part in the evaluation process. I was not asked whether I would have a problem having Michael Sam on my team.

NFL roundup: Dungy addresses comments on Sam (The SportsXchange)
A day after Tony Dungy was largely skewered for saying he would not have drafted openly gay linebacker Michael Sam, the former NFL coach clarified his comments and provided context. Dungy issued a statement Tuesday in an attempt to explain what he called an "honest answer" to a question for a story that appeared Sunday in the Tampa Tribune. "I was not asked whether or not Michael Sam deserves an opportunity to play in the NFL. "I was not asked whether his sexual orientation should play a part in the evaluation process.

Ravens LB Mosley eager to carry on tradition (The Associated Press)
C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness. Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott - who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley. The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.

Bills QB, coach differ on offense's performance (The Associated Press)
Bills quarterback EJ Manuel and coach Doug Marrone had widely conflicting assessments on how the offense performed on the third day of training camp. On one play, Woods made a quick cut only to have Manuel sail the ball well over his head.

Bills' sloppy offense concerns Marrone (The SportsXchange)
Progress is in the eye of the beholder for the Buffalo Bills, who held their first practice in pads on Tuesday before veterans for any of the other 31 NFL teams have even reported to training camp. Head coach Doug Marrone kept a sharp eye on the offense, which appeared sloppy as second-year quarterback EJ Manuel worked on his chemistry with an equally young receiving corps. "They finished strong, but it was not what we wanted," Marrone acknowledged of the offense. While Marrone wasn't pleased with the overall execution of the offense, Manuel thought it was a productive practice.

Rex, Jets hoping new pieces solve playoff puzzle (The Associated Press)
New playmakers, fresh-faced rookies and a rejuvenated Rex Ryan. They all have the New York Jets feeling pretty optimistic heading into training camp, with their sights set on ending a three-year playoff drought - the longest since owner Woody Johnson bought the team in 2000. Despite having inconsistent rookie quarterback Geno Smith start every game last season and an offense that lacked big-time playmakers, the Jets finished 8-8. New York added running back Chris Johnson, wide receiver Eric Decker, quarterback Michael Vick, and a dozen draft picks - many of whom, including safety Calvin Pryor, tight end Jace Amaro and cornerback Dexter McDougle, could see significant playing time.
