NFL…RIP

34% Are Less Likely to Follow NFL Because of Protests

From Rasmussen Reports: 

Are football fans voting with their TVs?

As the National Football League struggles to explain this season’s downturn in viewer ratings, 34% of American Adults say they are less likely to watch an NFL game because of the growing number of protests by players on the field. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 12% are more likely to watch, while 50% say the protests have no impact on their viewing decisions.

Like I said, they’re just getting warmed up:

Game Time, Levi Stadium

Here’s what it looked like, ahead of last night’s kick off between the 49ers and Rams.  You kneel for the National Anthem, this is what you get.  And they’re just getting started, the NFL players that is.  They now want the league to make November a month to protest the police.  I’m sure that will go over well.  NLF(no longer a fan).

NFL…rest in peace.

It’s a Spending Problem

Not a revenue problem.  Key bit from CNSnews.com: 

The federal government collected record total tax revenues through the first eleven months of fiscal 2017 (Oct. 1, 2016 through the end of August), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement.

Through August, the federal government collected approximately $2,966,172,000,000 in total tax revenues.

That was $8,450,680,000 more (in constant 2017 dollars) than the previous record of $2,957,721,320,000 in total tax revenues (in 2017 dollars) that the federal government collected in the first eleven months of fiscal 2016.

At the same time that the federal government was collecting a record $2,966,172,000,000 in tax revenues, it was spending $3,639,882,000,000—and, thus, running a deficit of $673,711,000,000.
