Don't worry Obama won't let His people down the EBT cards will be fully funded. The people fighting in Afghanistan won't get paid or the people that work for the government might have to suffer. The people that don't work will be the last ones to be cut off.

I would be delighted if those government checks & benefits didnt arrive on schedule. If your money or stipend comes from the government coffers your a taking parasite. In order for the taking parasites to receive that money has to be robbed away from some making producer. Or in the case of the 50 cents of every dollar the government spends that it borrows that is to be robbed from a future making producer. Too many taking parasites and too few making producers is not sustainable. Social Security is a Ponzi scheme that is quickly going broke.

Are you that dumb that you can't realize a period comes at the end of a sentence? Or some other proper punctuation based off that sentence structure? In your case, it was a PERIOD........

at lease? to can make out? what mind say? since?

Ahhh, you meant to say this:

At LEAST YOU can make out what MINE said. Your reply doesn't make SENSE.

School is good. You should try it.

Margret Thatcher stated the trouble with socialism is you eventually run out of other peoples money to redistribute. The fact is if you don,t use the earths natural resources to make ,build & grow something that adds to the GNP you are a taking parasite. The farther you get from being a maker the bigger parasite taker you become. now If your money goods & stipend comes from the public coffers you in actuality never pay taxes. Shure you do pay sales tax property tax ect. However since your money was first robbed (taxed) away from some present or future making producer before it was redistributed to you. You in fact never really paid any taxes. Its merely a recycling of tax revenue. Its like getting a dollar for free and paying a 10 cent handling fee. We have reached the point of too many taking Parasites and too few Making Producers. Just how are the great number of parasites going to make it without the government having enough producers to rod & redistribute.? the producers are fed up with being the parasites enablers. I resent the fact that my hard earned cash has to compete with so called free government food stamps and entitlements. I would jump for joy if the government checks didn't arrive.

Your the type that since you cant refute and you don't like the message you resort to attacking the messenger. Attacking the spelling or the character is not the way to debate.

I wont starve. We already grow most of our own food. Granted I would miss the convienence and variety offered in the stores .Howvever I wont starve. Many of the wiggers on food stamps that are Fat & obese need to starve. Shoot they could live off the stored fat for a month. And most of the food in the grocery stores is imported .

ebt-outoforder

(Pictured: Grocery stores and retailers are posting signs for shoppers about the Electronic Benefits Outage)

The Electronic Benefits Transfer system responsible for providing 50,000,000 Americans the means to put food on the table has crashed.

The outage is reportedly affecting at least sixteen states.

Via The Organic Prepper:

Abandoned carts full of food were a frequent sight in grocery stores Saturday morning, as the EBT food assistance debit system stopped working without warning.

According to a Xerox spokesperson, a routine system check by the vendor resulted in system failure, leaving assistance recipients across the country with no way to buy food.

Xerox spokeswoman Karen Arena confirmed via email Saturday afternoon that some Electronic Benefits Transfer systems are experiencing temporary connectivity issues. She said technical staff is addressing the issue and expects the system to be restored soon. U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Courtney Rowe underscored that the outage is not related to the government shutdown. Xerox runs EBT card systems for 17 states and all were affected by the outage.(source)

Users of EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) cards in California, Ohio, Michigan and several other states are unable to make purchases due to connectivity issues.

But it gets worse…

Xerox is notifying retailers to revert to the manual system, meaning SNAP customers can spend up to $50 until the system is back online. SNAP recipients should call the 800 number on the back of their card, and Xerox will guide them through the purchase process.(source)

However, that system is not working either – it’s “closed for maintenance.”

Shoppers left carts of groceries behind at a packed Market Basket grocery store in Biddeford, Maine, because they couldn’t get their benefits, said fellow shopper Barbara Colman, of Saco, Maine. The manager put up a sign saying the EBT system was not in use. Colman, who receives the benefits, called an 800 telephone line for the program and it said the system was down due to maintenance, she said.

“That’s a problem. There’s a lot of families who are not going to be able to feed children because the system is being maintenanced,” Colman said.“No one should put maintenance in during the daytime.”(source)

Despite the fact that government workers report orders from the Obama administration to “make life as difficult for people as we can”, the nation is assured that the EBT failure is in fact due to server issues and NOT due to the government shutdown.

If you ever wanted to know what the United States might look like and how people will react should the EBT system fail, then pay close attention

I go to the register and they ask me “how you going to pay.”

I said with food stamps.

“Oh, we’re shut down, you can’t pay with food stamps.”

I got kids to feed. You know?

And because the government’s down I can’t feed my family?

…

What’s going on with America? Now they trying to starve us to death?

…This is crazy

…I got six kids I have to feed.

…

I’m just trying to figure out how to get something to eat.

Try getting a job like the rest of us! Plus stop breeding like a rat.
If you can't feed them don't breed them!
Let the free ride end!

Damn right let the Spandex horde starve, a half days work would kill them off like flies. My basement is also full of canned vegetables from my garden.
I would sure love to see some of the welfare queens and their suckers working for a meal...
