The timing is just a little off. Most of them have their cards drained by the middle of the month anyway.

If this had happened on the 30th, it would look like the Tet offensive out there.

Yes they do, at least Sam's does in Colorado. Was stuck in line behind hood rats in Colorado Springs on Thursday. As usual they maxed out their card and left the rest of the cart sit.

I stopped at a dollar store to pick up a couple things a few hours ago and noticed the sign on the door. I say good! Most of those using EBT are too comfortable sitting back and letting the rest of us support them anyway. Let them be uncomfortable for a little while. And hasn't this happened a couple other times recently? Might this become more and more common? And might it be intentional?

I guess they'll have to crack open all those cans of pumpkin pie filling they got from the food banks.

Edit: I can actually picture them opening the cupboard and looking at half a dozen 5lb bags of flour they got from the food bank over the last year and thinking 'I wonder what you do with this stuff?'.
No, they are trying to figure out how to snort it.

so if welfare recipients take to twitter they are "outraged citizens". if tax payers take to message boards we are "right wing extremist, terrorist, racist, homophobes"... cool, let them riot i got popcorn to watch outraged citizens show their outrage.

And the administration will say its the republicans, they are responsible for the shutdown. but those who have an inkling of common sense will say so what. they didn't earn it like the rest of us. IMHO they can riot, keep it in your own neighborhood, in mine you'd likely get shot.

Default I saw SHFT today.

I was in walmart today when the announcement came over the intercom. Then I heard lots of cussing and shopping carts with food abandoned in isles.

while there are other threads on this topic already, you're the first to report having been in the store. What else did you see, hear, experience?
