Two Words; Cloward & Piven

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.
