FRANCES FOX PIVEN: "I teach at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. I am here because I am so enthusiastic about the possibilities of this sit-in, over the marches that are occurring over postal worker issues, the sister demonstrations that are starting in Chicago and Los Angeles, and maybe in Boston. I think we desperately need a popular uprising in the United States. None of us know. I study movements. None of us know the exact formula for when those movements erupt, but it could be. And if that is true, then these people who are here are really wonderful. I would do anything to help them." (TV Show: "Democracy Now!")

Note to Piven: You wanted sheeple, sweetie, you got sheeple. Please feel free to hold your breath while you wait for your, snort, popular uprising.
Anyone notice she is calling for a “popular uprising” not an uprising of the “populace” which is what the Tea Party is.
The popular uprising is called the TEA party.
This piven creature is a complete useless moron. There...I said it.
Obama needs his own personal populist Tea-Party-Like movement to carry him to victory in 2012 - at least he thinks so. Since you cannot expect such a movement to arise spontaneously then you just put the SEIU and its comrades to work and you fake it. If this works it will be a miracle.
Go for it Frances!!

Her type of uprising needs useful idiots, but the TEA party is thinking patriots.
The idiots “won” in ‘08, and I hope the game does not get delayed or canceled next year.

You’re goin’ to get one, my dear Frances, and it’s going to be huge.
But it won’t be from the people you’re expecting it to be from!

Frances Fox Piven is another limousine liberal who thinks she is inspiring the underclass masses (who would just as soon kill her or spit on her) ala Leonard Bernstein. The irony is that most of the Wall St. protesters are spoiled, trust-funded brats, or sons and daughters of red doper diaper babies. Anyone besides pumped up radical socialists such as herself is ignoring them.
There is nothing more pathetic than someone who refuses to notice that their ideology died out forty years ago. A “sit in”??? Really?? Please.
Note: Just fast forward to the 3:00 mark to see Sowell and Piven...
It appears Palin has gotten WAY ahead of you in identifying the issues of the economy in the USA and already has good ideas on how to fix it.
The nominal penalty for treason is deal by hanging.
The nominal penalty for treason is death by hanging.
Old hippies never die
They just become college professors
The news report today said that half the marchers from the Brooklyn Bridge went in one direction to protest “poverty” and the other half went in the opposite direction to protest genetically modified foods.
They are immature young adults just protesting for the sake of protesting the onset of adulthood.
I think poor francis has been studying bowel movements all of her life. (hence her shit*y outlook on life)
