Oh lawdy lawdy!!! The food stamp program is down nationwide, reportedly for a "system upgrade" but no one told the welfare rats. And now they are all on Twitter talking about rioting.

If they do riot, then that will be a good indication of what will likely happen when (or if) they stop making HANDOUTS at a later date in the future.

Well if your local welfare rats haven't burned the stores down yet, I bet the lines at the check out will be a lot shorter!

There is no reason to put extra food away is what I normally hear. I bet they wish they had.

I thought the riots were supposed to take a week to begin in a food shutdown. Must recalibrate the scale I guess to a few hours.

Yep. With social media and twitter, it could definitely speed up the rioting.

It was errand day for us and there seemed to be no problems with EBT in Tulsa as of an hour ago. Last week the Hispanic mkt posted a sign saying they would no longer accept EBT. I wondered if it would effect their business. It certainly didn't seem to, it was just as busy today as always.

One more federal program that shouldn't exist. Churches do a far better job...

Default EBT cards being denied? OOPS!

Is this for real? Poor bastages are going to have to go to work now.

That is a bummer, well for the 40% of the people that receive it and actually depend on it, that is.
The other 60% will have to reach into their own wallets now.

Wont happen. They will complain until they get hungry enough then they will go out raiding to get what they want / need. They are use to it all being given to them. No pride in the fruits of there labor.
