“In battle, when you accidentally shoot your own, it’s called friendly fire. When you deliberately shoot your own it’s called fragging. Republicans, stop fragging the American economy and the American people.” – Democrat Jan Schakowsky –
“Any faction in America that would put a gun to the head of 310 million people and say ‘If you don’t do it our way, we will blow your dreams away, we will blow a hole in the American economy.” – Van Jones, Obama Adviser –
“I have to downgrade Charles [ Krauthammer] here. You initially said why don’t Republicans, you know, take the victory. And it’s because there’s a nihilist caucus which is, “Listen, we want to burn the place down." I mean, they’re not, they’ve strapped explosives to the Capitol and they think they are immune from it. The Tea Party caucus wants this crisis, and do we want to do this again six months from now? This whole two-step process is another thing which is they like the drama. They want to do it again.” – Margaret Carlson, Liberal Pundit –
The above quotes are an example of the “new tone” in Washington. It’s ironic…left wingers accusing Republicans and the Tea Party of being terrorists. I wonder if Ms. Carlson has ever heard of Obama friend and mentor Bill Ayers…a man who participated in the bombings of the Capitol building in 1971?
More later. – Lew –
“First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven (both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven today is an honorary chair), the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.” – from Discover The Networks –
It is a terrifying thought; the president of the United States of America deliberately causing the collapse of the economy. What’s that you say? The Cloward and Piven Strategy is just right-wing, conspiratorial nonsense? Okay then, tell me, what exactly is Obama doing?
All I hear from Obama is that everything is George Bush’s fault. All I hear from Harry Reid is that any GOP debt plan is “dead on arrival” in the Senate. All I hear from Nancy Pelosi is that the GOP wants to destroy the world as we know it with their debt plan. Well, in Nancy’s case, that may be true…no more private jets, gourmet groceries, and top shelf booze on the taxpayers dime, eh, Nancy? Enough campaign crapola. I want to hear the Democrat’s plan. I want to hear the Obama’s plan.
The Democrats failure to present a plan to stop the U.S. from defaulting on the debt leads me to one conclusion; that the U.S. defaulting on the debt is their plan…the Cloward and Piven Strategy…economic collapse.
Okay, so you think I’m a right-wing conspiracy theorist. Without the political rhetoric (you know, calling me a racist, redneck, homophobe, etc.) convince me that I am wrong about Obama and Cloward and Piven.
Yeah, I didn’t think so.
