No one has talked much about the content of Obama's speech..I find that interesting and sad really -
THE MARSHALL PLAN - General Marshall was no fringe person folks - he was the real deal - an American hero - a brilliant man - and responsible
for the recovery of a world devastated by war and the loss of 60 million souls....Obama referred to him several times in this speech...this is
significant because the Marshall plan has not been employed with regards to Iraq or Afghanistan...the greatest strategic plan of the post WWII
recovery has been left to rot replaced by the business interests of Halliburton, and other pirates of our great multinational corporate
boondoggle......so all you patriots out there that have anything NOW have it because of a great generation of men and women that took on evil, won,
made peace and repaired the damage to friend and foe alike under the guidance of General Marshall....I suggest you read up on Marshall because if
Obama is serious (and thats always the big question with EVERY politician) then he's onto something that could make a difference....
Will he do it? I don't know - will McCain do it? Most definitely NOT - he is in the camp of the neo-conservative fascists who have no intention of
using the success of the Marshall plan as a guide and have proven their incompetence, and treachery over and over again...
1)our troops had to fight to get amour for their trucks - wtf????
2)our 9/11 first responders are dying cause the current government does not give a rats a$$ about them...
3)oh and Bin Laden still walks free...(oh forgot - Bush is a close friend of his family)
4)The Saudis have never been called to account for 9/11 planned on their turf, executed by their nationals.....(oh forgot, Bush is a close friend of
the Saudi Royal family and they own a lot of our T-bills)
5)We have an institutional policy of torture that comes from the top down but when the sh!t hits the fan the men responsible for the orders make a few
low level soldiers take the fall...oh thats sooo bloody heroic....
So when I hear someone reference the Marshall Plan - I'm all ears....not necessarily all belief mind you but willing to listen...part of me is
extremely cynical at this point in my life...I see the faces change but the agenda always seems to stay the same, favoring the "military industrial
complex" - remember Eisenhower's warning? My father was on his staff and that was the code phrase for ""fascism"....
