More Spending, Mo Money and More Marshall Plan. 

As if Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau recent press conference didn’t dump enough fluff on the fire apparently there is more to come:

A great day in New Hampshire!

Former defeated Congressman and Ambassador to Denmark is now, according to this video below is now advocating for global expansion of the Marshall Plan.  I have a policy question for Dick:

Have you ever studied history?

Marshall Plan did rebuild war torn economies but was also doctrine of 'unconditonal surrender.'The Marshall Plan did indeed rebuild a devastated economy, namely Germany in post WW II. However, the Marshall Plan was and is still under the doctrine of unconditional surrender where the German economy and industrial complex was literally dismembered in favor of complete control and domination by U.S. based companies. Something similar to the Marshall Plan was done in post war Japan as well. I’ve been to both countries and seen firsthand what the Marshall Plan and what the doctrine of unconditional surrender really means.

Ultimately it means that the United States and its taxpayers pay for everything.

Is this what Swett wants for the U.S. to pay for and control everything?  The former ambassador didn’t mention the United Nations but I don’t think it’s a stretch to think this would be the vehicle used to Former Ambassador Swett (Left) supports a global based Marshall Plan strategy. U.S. taxpayers will be left to pay for it. accomplish such a global, and spending Marshall Plan.

I don’t think the United States can afford this type of idea. I’d also question his ideas of markets and widget sales; I don’t think he has even thought this one out and where this might be in reality.

I’m glad Dick Swett isn’t a policymaker or has any real power to make financial decisions.

Gee, Steve -- I get it. I think Dick Swett is brilliant on this. Not as a way of spending more money, but "investing" -- that's an important concept -- in a future of economic prosperity and peace. It's a double-benefit when you invest in other countries for economic development rathan than bombing them. We all benefit.

About the Marshall Plan, by the way. Assume we didn't do it. The Soviets would have filled the void throughout Europe. Then what? We might have all been speaking another language today, if indeed we were alive. Being smart today can make America stronger for our kids. If we don't show more concern for each other and our future, we might lose it all.

Ya, brilliant, Jimbo, like the brilliance emanating from a 20 watt bulb. Amerika doesn't have any more cash to invest in new adventures across the mighty, mighty seas 'cuz they don't have enough confiscated coin to pay for the current litany of home-brewed boondoggles. But that don't mean guys like Jimbo can't share his wealth by bleeding his achin' heart all over the Middle-ish East and other hellholes on Mommy Earth. Time to open up your wallet to stuff your pie-hole.

Ohhhhh C. dog -- I don't know where some people get their news or information, or their view of the world. "Investment," as of which Dick Swett speaks, is a way for America (I find it insulting to the millions of Americans who fought and died to protect our great country not to spell it correctly -- for joking or for any other reason) to MAKE money.

If we help other countries economically instead of sending them our bombs, they will buy our products and contribute to expanding the international economy -- that's the win-win of which I often speak. Plus, they're less likely to attack us, which if you haven't noticed gets mighty expensive in many ways.

Of course, that might be hard for others who can't or won't spell the name of our great nation correctly to understand. At least I'm pleased that my vote can cancel one of those.

"We" white man? I don't recall receiving my stock certificates in the mail for involuntarily "investing" in Vive France, or Saint Pauli Girl Germany, or Iraq oil fields. Perhaps you could be a good chap and forward them to me? Perhaps you could tell us all what ROI on your personal (non-Nanny) investments in Sovereign risks across Mommy Earths BFA has yielded for you to date? Given your claims for such lofty pecuniary gains, I might just chip in a token of my appreciation, but I gots to get me sum of that scientific data before I takes the plunge.

Thank doG I voted for the RINO's this time so I could cancel out Jimbo's vote for the Grate Amerika – you're a tru patriot, pally. By the way, the offer still stands to bus you down to MA-MA Land – sans shipping charges!
