WHO NEEDS RULES? NFL Players Arrested Every 7 Days On Average

The Daily Wire reports:
The National Football League is in a golden age right now: It's been 23 days since one of its players has been arrested.

The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to NFLarrest.com, which "provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges," the site says.

Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.

The NFL virtually embraces players who abuse women. Take this report in the Chicago Tribune: "In the first round [of the 2017 draft], the Oakland Raiders drafted Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. In the second round, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Joe Mixon, who in a much-viewed video punches a woman so hard that she falls down unconscious. In the sixth round, the Cleveland Browns selected Caleb Brantley, who was accused of doing pretty much what Mixon did."
Imagine that.

It's On. Call for a National boycott of the NFL for Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend.

The data debunk the Taxachusetts myth ?

The Boston Globe reports:
Taxes in Massachusetts aren’t high. Compared with the rest of the country, they’re pretty average. And among New England states, only New Hampshire has a lower overall tax rate.

Says who? The Census Bureau, which regularly releases details on taxes collected by state and local governments. The latest batch covers 2015, slightly stale but still largely accurate, given that Massachusetts hasn’t pursued any recent tax changes.

The Politicization of Everything .Everybody loses in the Trump-NFL brawl over the national anthem.

The Wall Street Journal reports:
American democracy was healthier when politics at the ballpark was limited to fans booing politicians who threw out the first ball—almost as a bipartisan obligation. This showed a healthy skepticism toward the political class. But now the players want to be politicians and use their fame to lecture other Americans, the parsons of the press corps want to make them moral spokesmen, and the President wants to run against the players.

The losers are the millions of Americans who would rather cheer for their teams on Sunday as a respite from work and the other divisions of American life.
How sad.

Bill de Blasio is cruising to a second term. But don't expect New Yorkers to be happy about it

Crain's New York Business reports:
De Blasio, by contrast, had budget coffers overflowing with a $3 billion surplus. Murders had fallen below 350, the fewest in decades. The economic recovery from the financial crisis had been so strong that the city had just passed the 4 million mark for jobs, breaking a record set in 1969. His biggest problem was that the unions had been working without contracts for years and were very unhappy. He had the money to deal with the issue.

From Koch to Bloomberg, New York's mayors saw their task as nothing less than saving the city from a succession of crises and maybe creating the conditions under which New York's inherent advantages—the creativity and drive of its inhabitants, its transit infrastructure and its access to capital—might allow it to thrive.

They succeeded so spectacularly that de Blasio could give himself a completely different challenge: making the city fair.

"I want to repair an inequality of opportunity that threatens to unravel the proud promise of New York," he said in a postelection speech, setting the standard by which he should be judged.
The Mayor heads towards another victory.
