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)

Remembering Jack Kemp

Nacilbupera was saddened to hear of Saturday's passing of Jack Kemp. Nacilbupera proudly voted for the Dole-Kemp ticket of 1996 and remembers Kemp fondly for his tax-cutting agenda and his unabashed pro-life stance. How much better off would we be with Kemp in the Oval Office than an Obama or Biden!

To celebrate his passage to a better life, Nacilbupera is encouraging the signing of petition at Permit us some background. Like Kemp, the Catholic church has been a staunch supporter of the unborn's right to life and Obama has been among the most anti-life politicians ever. Indeed Nacilbupera condemns Obama's rescinding of the Mexico City Policy which prohibits our tax dollars from funding abortions outside the US. This rescission was one of the first acts Obama performed as president; indeed Obama has a huge resume of being anti-life (considered by many to be the most anti-life president ever), the topic of another blog another day.

Many Catholics are outraged at the invitation of Obama to speak at their Commencement ceremonies, scheduled May 17th. Many are planning a boycott unless Obama is replaced. The petition above asks Notre Dame President John Jenkins to rescind the invitation. Nacilbupera has joined arms with our Catholic brothers and sisters in signing this petition and urges like-minded lifers to do the same.

Nacilbupera feels that looking down from heaven both Jack Kemp and Our Lady whose name this great university bears would be proud of our efforts.
