He doesn’t need those people any longer. They’ve already done what was needed of them...vote for 0bama.

Shout it from the rooftops.
How do you like your oblahblah fo' now, takers? oblahblah gave you a FO, mang!
How's that healthcare going for you?
Gee, too bad you can't eat those phones.
You have been used and abused, and you are about to be discarded.
Your messiah is hoping that you just kill each other off in the riots.
He's tired of you and wants Mexicans who will work and vote for his communism reliably.
Of course, once you're dead, you'll still be able to vote for what he wants.

CWII Ping.

See Matt Bracken's prophetic article Will Obama stop the music this November?

Many have predicted that turning off the EBT card would be the start of serious violent rioting in the USA, possibly a precursor to CWII. Thus, the ping.

So ..... assuming the law of supply and demand etc..... if we take billions of dollars out of the consumers hands .... the demand drops .... the supply is long .... and the price comes down for those who actually have their own money.

True, they would have to *somehow* pay a membership fee for Costco...but, Costco DOES accept EBT :(

A HUD property we managed received noticed that Federal housing subsidies might not be paid on time either, but there was no end date, it was just a scare letter.

Well, we also have to analyze what happens to the black-market foodstamp economy... convenience stores.. drug trafficking.. selling your food stamps for 50cents on the dollar.. restaurants cooking meats procured via EBT.. where’s the money to make the Escalade payment... there’s just too much craziness for me to believe it will actually happen.

The SNAP shutdown plan claims that SNAP funds have been forward funded and there is funding from fiscal year 2013 that will last for the entire fiscal year 2014.

You know... I think if we really made it stick.... over time the cost of “luxury” items would come down as more people shifted cash being spent on those items ..... to purchasing core needs. But it would be really ugly along the way.

From the USDA plan:

“In addition, about $2 billion in contingency funding will be available and could be used to support State Administrative activities essential to continue the program and issue and process benefits. These contingency funds were provided in the FY 2013 appropriation and do not expire until the end of FY 2014.”

“Could be used to support State Administrative activies essential to continue the program...?

Sounds like Utah found out it won’t be paid for SNAP administration if the debt ceiling isn’t raised.

The only thing that would cause me to believe it is the one fact that conservatives desperately avoid thinking about.

Such a thing would only create more democrats.

New acronym trending on Facebook:

FSA (Free "Stuff" Army)

I believe credit for that one goes to the subguns.com forum.

Seems descriptive, accurate and succinct to me. Plus, it gives the real Amish a break.

I don’t know, but I will bet you can use your EBT to pay the Costco membership. If so, that stinks to high Heaven.

"several States provide the next month's issuance files as early as the 15th of the month...

...we are directing States to hold their November issuance files and delay transmission to State (EBT) vendors until further notice"

Ok, what are the chances that the 17 states affected in Saturday's EBT shut down are the States that provide the next month's issuance files as early as the 15th of the month.

What the hell is a JUDGE doing with an EBT card??? I thought those folks were well-compensated. Or is she hobbled by that weird “pay-freeze-for-judges” clause in the Constitution?

I guess the EBT shutdown over the weekend was a demonstration of what can be expected to happen.

Ha! They called it a glitch.

I call it a dry run.

I agree.

It always bugs me when any kind of thread gets posted dealing with some kind of civil disruption, be it Earthquake, hurricane, whatever, and the very first reply goes something like this... “Time to get to Cabelas and buy another 5,000 rounds!!”

or “Let the fun begin!!”

These people don’t have a clue what they are asking for. I don’t care how well armed someone is, in a total Road Warrior situation, you are pretty much just as dead as the next guy - you just get to live a little longer than he did.

It’s unseemly for people to say they are all ready to start shooting. IMHO, people with that attitude are as much a part of the problem as the zombies.
