Dr. Woods discusses an attack on Ron Paul by a “libertarian” vice president of the Cato Institute.

Cato’s only real beef with Dr. Paul, in my opinion, is that Paul leans socially conservative. Reason magazine also has this bias against people who hold culturally traditional views. “Mainstream libertarians” tend to have the same bias against family and church that the left-wing progressives do.

Taxation is theft. The IRS employee is a microcosm of a larger problem, natch.

Bill Nye hates children. He is merely reflecting modern society’s prejudice against procreational sex.

Bankers doubt the Trump Tax. It’s not workable; he’ll never get it passed; well, since it got passed it won’t do what he says; well, the economy is improving, sure, but not because of the Trump tax cuts, Trump will never win reelection, well, Trump only won re-election because he lucked out with a good economy, Trump is a four-year lame-duck president, holy cow, is Trump incompetent, Trump was the greatest President of our time, now that he’s retired from public life.

A New Candidate for Shakespearean Authorship

Amelia Bassano has been put forward as the authoress of Shakespeare’s plays.

The article linked derides the idea, as well as the idea that anyone other than William Shaksper of Stratford-upon-Avon could be the author of the works that bears Shakespeare’s name. I would suspect, though, that we have a greater sample of Ms. Bassano’s actual handwriting (correspondence, handwritten poems, jotted notes on scratch paper) than we do of William Shaksper.

Here is snopes.com on the matter, for what it’s worth.

And here is a dramatic presentation of American author Mark Twain concerning Shakespearean authorship (which I have posted on this blog previously).

♠ The result of the French Elections: Le Pen and Macron. Macron will assuredly win; he’s as much of a shoe-in as Hillary Clinton. Believe me.

♣ Teenagers are revolting. If they are present in large enough numbers, that is.

♥ This is from four days ago: A firefighter catches a baby thrown from a burning building.

♦ About that French election: Since Macron will certainly win, the markets approve.
