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)

Thank You Soldier!

On this Memorial Day 2009, Nacilbupera would be greatly amiss if we didn't publicly thank the noble and courageous men and women serving in our armed forces, past and present. We honor you today.

Nacilbupera is chagrined we did not honor our living members of our country's armed forces last week on the 60th annual Armed Forces Day. Upon reflection, we have three annual opportunities to pay homage to our military: the current forces on Armed Forces Day, the deceased forces on Memorial Day, and our honorably discharged and retired forces on Veteran's Day. Custom, however, permits us to honor all or any of our present or past military on each holiday.

Serving in the military is a noble endeavor; indeed, it is one Nacilbupera wishes perhaps we somehow had made the opportunity to experience. Alas! Nacilbupera must use this freedom granted by the service of our military to lift our country and build from within.

America, May God Thy Gold Refine!
