The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

A Celebration of Mothers

Nacilbupera is grateful for Moms. Nacilbupera has been blessed with a Mother who has nurtured us, sacrificed for us, and most importantly instructed us wisely on good vs. bad choices in life to prepare us to stand before the judgement of an omniscient God. We are also grateful to a wonderful mother-in-law who, although has passed on to a better life, always treated us like their favorite son with love and service.

We also give public thanks for a few public Moms. Nacilbupera is grateful to First Mom Michelle Obama and her sacrifices made to raise two beautiful daughters; what a wonderful example! We are grateful to Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her wonderful decision to rear not only a quiver full of children but also a child with special needs.

We are grateful for the Virgin Mary and her special calling as the Mom of our Savior Jesus Christ. And we remember with love also our common Mother Eve, who brought forth the first children to this world.

Mothers seem to have the lowest visible appreciation to work done ratio of humanity; they give their love unconditionally to their husbands and children and oft receive little of worldly benefit in return. Praise to Mothers everywhere!
