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.

Did draft experts correctly predict Elam last year? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Are the Ravens going to take Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin? We went back and checked out how some of the top national pundits fared with their final 2013 mock first-round draft pick for the Ravens. Of course, the Ravens were drafting at No. 32 last year, so a lot more variables were in play last year than this year, when the Ravens, barring a move up or down, will draft at No. 17. A couple of national writers correctly linked the Ravens and Florida safety Matt Elam, but many did not project Elam as a first-round pick.

Ravens may face choice between Clinton-Dix and Pryor (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens will have an interesting choice if both Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Alabama and Calvin Pryor of Louisville are available with the 17th pick. NFL Network analyst Charles Davis prefers Clinton-Dix. Not to say that Clinton-Dix doesnt tackle, he does. Can Calvin Pryor do those things?

Will Bengals, A.J. Green work out long-term deal? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
One of the things on the Cincinnati Bengals plate, business-wise, is dealing with a long-term contract for Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green, their most potent offensive weapon. Even if the Bengals do nothing about a new deal, Green is contractually bound to them for 2014 and 2015 even 2016 if they wanted to go the franchise tag route. Should Green be at all displeased about a lack of progress on a new contract, his options are limited, as PFT says. So thats why coach Marvin Lewis told PFT he isnt worried about a holdout.

Ravens, 49ers to hold joint practices in August (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
The Ravens and 49ers will hold four combined practices in Maryland following their Thursday, Aug. 7 preseason game at M&T Bank Stadium. They will hold a light practice together at M&T the day after the game, followed by three joint sessions at the Ravens practice facility in Owings Mills from Aug. 9-11. It will give Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh a chance to spend more time together, while their teams compete against each other. I called Jim about a month ago and asked him if he wanted to do it, and I wasnt really sure if hed want to, John Harbaugh told the Ravens website.
