Skip to comments.EBT To Shut Down Nationwide Starting November
Posted on 10/15/2013 7:59:03 AM PDT by TigerClaws
I think it's the single most factor which keeps black females unwed with chil'run. They pool the EBT and other assistance to their household with mamma, granny, etc.... So you see people who are making $50K to $100K using EBT cards because their children lease out their uterus for food and phones. City employees, school teachers, city judge, hospital workers, etc.... I see with their ID badges hung from their neck lanyards paying for their groceries with an EBT card.
They pimp out their kids.
Utah is a state, not the nation.
This isn’t the shutdown, this is the debt ceiling. Different crisis, much more severe. This one could actually turn into crisis.
I can’t wait to see the results.
SNAP is the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (commonly called ‘food stamps’).
These days there are credit card looking “EBT” (electronic benefit transfer) cards given to beneficiaries of the program. That way instead of the shame of having the ‘stamps’ like the old days and so the stamps wouldn’t become a currency, the debit card requires the user to present their ID and it’s run like a credit card.
EBT is the common reference now for ‘food stamps’ with benefits being from 100-700 a month depending on the number of dependents in the family and income (if any).
So the money will stop and shoppers will be told, as they were the past few days, “The system is down.” Or a sign at the door, “We no longer accept food stamps.”
This is if the CURRENT state of affairs continues. The ‘shutdown’ is being made more severe to cause more pressure on the GOP to cave. Parks and monuments weren’t enough.
The letter is addressed to ALL STATES.
Utah just happened to be the one to pick up the story first.
As opposed to going looking for a job.
Thanks for posting. Verifies it.
Now is this for the debt default or is this even if a debt agreement is worked out but the current ‘shutdown’ continues?
What jobs? Obama had seen to it that the economy stays weak.
There will be an absolute bloodletting riot.
All of the lobbyists for Ralph’s, Krogers, A&P, Albertsons, Giant Eagle, Walmart, Kraft, Hormel, Del Monte, Starkist, Campbells, etc. etc., all descending on Capitol Hill in a blood-curdling rage.
How do you expect to have an economy when you can’t sell to people who don’t have any money?
I’m in IT. When I see the letter in the op and see the problems people are having with EBT cards, it is pretty obvious that changes are being released into prod to handle this - and the changes are buggy. Kinda like Obamacare.
This could ger REALLY ugly. I’ve said for years that the dependent class will burn down their own neighborhood if they feel empowered by not getting their entitlement. Look what they did after the Rodney King verdict when they felt entitled by an event that did not even directly affect them. If their cards stop working, they will ransack stores for what they are “rightly entitled to” all over the country.
I don’t know how big it will get, but it really could become CWII of a sort and force martial law. And considering the power this would give the president, it might be just what they want. I need my CCW NOW!
So Obama, who alone has the discretion to do so, has decided that food stamps are “non-essential services”?
Quick, let’s make sure the media reports this!!

And Bo's on his knees.
I’ll bet this dismantling of our Country is going better and faster than the Communist/Socialist/Marxist/Agitator/Racist/Hating America-in-Chief and his cronies could have ever dreamed of.
If we hit the debt ceiling there will not be any jobs to be had. That said we are going to hit it sooner or later so why not now? Bush and Obama made this mess so I'd guess it's our job to clean it up. As long has the lights stay on we can make it thru this.
Actually, you should have been storing up and rotating food for months and years ALREADY. ..
They are hell bent on starting riots and full all out class warfare.
Thank God for rifled slugs
You might want to get your ice fishing gear out and ready. ;>)
Are there any very newly discovered comets I’m not aware of?
I’m having a hard time believing POSHITUS really will let this happen to his people.
He doesn’t need those people any longer. They’ve already done what was needed of them...vote for 0bama.
All you EBT people - go to the White House. I really doubt that Obama will stop delivery on all that luxury food. Talk about the mother of all EBT cards!
Mark Levin Show 10-8-2013:
3:00 The military is not 50 percent of the budget. Yet Obama went after the military in this battle because he hates the military. He went after them by 50% compared to other budget items.
11:21 on the audio: We will never default on debt payments unless they are so massive we cannot make payments-not because of debt ceiling fight..but the obligations we are taking on. Obama wants the debt ceiling raised to pay for future projects. NOT TO PAY FOR BILLS WE OWE NOW.
20:00 Social security checks will come no matter what until the year 2038, in which time it is all gone. Congress took surplus out of SS fund. U.S. treasury issued IOU’s can be redeemed when default. 2010 was the first time defaulted since 1983. Recovered with IOU’s from the treasury. Treasury can borrow 1.00 to replace 1.00 in IOU paid to SS fund. The federal reserve gives them the dollar. It still remains under the debt ceiling.
24:35 It is a federal statute to pay SS. The govt. redemption of treasury bond would not breech debt ceiling.
“He doesnt need those people any longer. Theyve already done what was needed of them...vote for 0bama.”
He needs these people to do just one remaining thing: Riot!
Dude! Do you realize you just struck gold with that post.
If no inconvenience was felt due to a particular federal agency being closed, why do we need to re-open it on a budget has been agreed to.
So I was right to move to a small rural town far from the madding crowds?
Yep. In our area it's the Black Escalades. I started noticing them, markedly, after the '08 election. First at grocery stores, then at the *nicer* chain restaurants. What's up with dat?!
Way more then "his" people have skin in this "game". I am having a hard time believing the global bankers have not descended on the White House/Congress and read the riot act. Tomorrow will be interesting if there is no deal and full out panic takes hold.
I am happy the House is holding the line. There is still plenty of time for a deal if the other side is willing to deal. If not then better to go over the cliff then cave.
I agree..it’s a planned and systematic event...next they will cut of Seniors on SS.....
This Pres. has no problem playing Chicago thuggery to get his “Revenue Hog” Obamacare, flowing to the Capital..and distributed as he wants on an International scale.
Americans are “Collateral damage”.
Not just HEB and Walmart....pretty much EVERY grocery store!! I cannot find ONE grocery store in the Houston area that does NOT accept EBT :(
Bingo! Their only use at this point is to take his six and twelve on starting a war of fundamental change......I mean riots.
<....”It sure looks like the community organizer (a.k.a. communist agitator) now has the levers of government”....>
Yep....looks like it...so the question is what will the Congress do? Nothing....this is too systematic to be without careful planning ahead of the game.
In our neck of the woods it seems to be Chrysler products. 300s, 200s, Magnum wagons, Durangos, etc.
The White House won’t compromise. Nobody can tell me they care about the American public.
Oh, me, too. Just wondering if it’s actually possible this happens. If it does, right after giving PBS 455 million, then it IS CW II. Before Nov 1.
besides the ones that already are?
The price of steak, lobster, shrimp and bacon to plummet....
Think of it as a 'dry run'...
That said, if dems are working at creating a race war it might be wise to expand 'food bank' assistance. I guess the 'pain' dems want to cause isn't enough ... so using their dependent class to rob and beat up more responsible citizens is their first option of choice.
Are democrats evil?
Costco? SNAP receivers would have to pay the membership fee.
Let the rioting begin
You’re foolish to look forward to that.
Only an idiot would believe it was actually going to happen and despite the fact that FReepers want to BELIEVE like a bunch of liberals.
I’m also hearing that there will be a nationwide power grid shutdown in November.
Be sure to stock up on dried Lipton onion soup mix.
It can transform the most tasteless of meals into something delicious
Dried beans are no good without water to soak them in! Have a bunch of 5-gallon containers of water
TOILET PAPER will be better than dollars when TSHTF (it might be cheaper to use actual dollars soon)
who has a hidden room where you can store things? (I wouldn’t tell you if I did)
HAS ANYONE TRIED THOSE MAIL ORDER NGO SEEDS?
