Call up my libinlaws and say “told ya”.

Just tell'em "refusing to draw an obvious conclusion does not count as a 'difference of opinion.'"

Hey, that would make a fine tag line!

I live in a “very diverse” area and I plan to do some stocking up. If this goes down, I’ll likely be spending time with my brother’s family in a non-diverse area (and one where he might be able to retrieve his weapons from the bottom of that lake...) 30 miles away.

This honestly has me creeped out with goosebumps.

You don’t get it.

They won’t be able to. Is anyone telling them this is coming? No.

They aren’t ready for this.

If this happens...they will riot and there will be martial law across the USA.

And maybe you have NO pity... and maybe you shouldn’t.... but some of us live in areas where people may likely riot.

I already sent this to my family...talked on the phone with them and said...”I’m going to stock my car and if this happens...I’m driving to you.”

I will quietly load supplies into the back of my car. See... I’m in an inner city gun free zone and I’m a single female.

“I’m in an inner city gun free zone and I’m a single female.”

I understand your concern. It’s good that you have parents to go to.

Maybe I should be expecting some of my single granddaughters to show up here (concealed carry, Castle Doctrine state.)

Time for another run to the grocery store!

Your property doesn’t have to be zombie proof - it just has to look less “worth it” than the guy down the road.

BINGO we have a winner.

i’m gonna be smart and load my car with food quietly first. The people where I am are likely not to know about this.

If there’s no budget deal... on Oct 31...I’ll be loading up my pet and suitcase and heading to my brother’s house.

All EBT stands for is Electronic Banking Card.

So yes, one set up as a SNAP card may only purchase food or seeds with same. But those serving as unemployment benefits for instance may work like ATM/debit cards - same as cash with no restrictions.

EBT for Costco membership? Prolly not.

But hey, since some employers provide a freebie or reduced-cost membership as a benefit to employees, howzabout we just make it mandatory for employers of more than 50 people?

Eh?

How bout it?

Think of moving to somewhere who you can own a gun. Seriously.

If you can't defend it, you don't own it. Your possessions, car, body etc.

glad we moved out of the cesspit of memphis in June. It isn’t going to be pretty when all those illegals and welfare queens get their EBT cards cut off, that is after all their loto money, cig money and booze or drug money.

the shame of having the ‘stamps’ like the old days

That means they should print the food stamps in fluorescent colors, and as large as a newspaper.

Maybe set off a loud alarm when they are presented.

Actually one checkout line should be dedicated to only servicing EBT. There should be scale and the overweight will be escorted out(to there new cars).

That's a yoke.

In my local sooper market, the fish market manager tells me that without EBT purchases, lobsters are a tiny part of his business. Same for oysters and salmon.

The whole EBT system is a joke. In fact the system is bias against those who try to better themselves.

About 3yrs ago I was unemployed (the shop I worked for closed down)and I had to collect unemployment. I applied for an EBT card a few months into it and was denied. Two months before I found a job, they finally sent me one of those cards with $15 a month for food. In the meantime I had gotten by with help for food from local charities and food banks. What really ticked me off, was the fact that some of those same people I saw loading baskets at the food banks were also loading food into baskets at the local grocery store and it was a hell of a lot more food than $15 could buy.

The whole system is a scam and a vast majority of the people who are receiving benefits are abusing the system. The bastids will have no problem rioting in the streets when their benefits get cut. They’ll probably riot at the food banks as well.

Nope, the date stamp makes it look real. If it were typed it would like be fake. The typical US Government agency memo is not dated until it is signed. This is done with a date stamp.

Not every person on EBT is overweight. I know many people on EBT who are working their butts off and have little to know food because of the minimum wage. Be sure that who you claim is obese is truly on EBT and not just using their own wages.
