Good Point. The ELECTION is the 6th... by then they will be 6 days late.

Could this storm be the October Surprise and natural disaster Obama needs to stop payments of welfare, EBT, Social Security, Military and Retirement Checks of many. America has been bankrupt for a long time and Obama needed something to issue all of his executive orders he has signed since being in office.

Do you buy remember Katrina??? Ok, they didn't "riot," but they looted and stole and robbed like mother fuckers!
 Quoting: Hitokiri

anyone who was truly paying attention would know that all that talk was pushed by the MSM the looting was minimal and it was the police who were instigating violence by roaming around as armed gangs killing indiscriminately.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26154576


I was actually there helping with cleanup and saw everything first hand. The MSM actually did a hell of a job covering up the 100's of stories that are hard to hear without having racist feelings pop up.
Don't speak your opinion as fact when you have no clue wtf you are talking about.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20580592


When Katrina hit I followed all the coverage very closely and all the things people were reporting on message boards etc, I had relatives there so I was consumed with the events and very sympathetic to all the people affected.

The whole time as I was reading about the terrible things happening I said with conviction "When this is done they are going to sweep all this under the carpet, they'll say it never happened, that all the crime and gangs of looters was a myth and a hoax, mark my words."

Of course that is how it turned out, I've heard a few people on here say that none of it ever happened, that it was all made up.

Really awful how people are so caught in denial, I don't understand it but it's not healthy at all. The truth is always right and good, TRUTH is what's important no matter if it's bad news or makes someone look bad.

Stop being an idiot.

The masses riot? In this country?? Are you that dense???

Rioting requires passion, something Americans are lacking.

Most you'd see is some bitching and moaning, but god forbid anyone have to actually do anything for themselves, they'll just wait around for someone else to do the hard work.

Masses riot? Over not getting welfare!? Yeah right, keep dreaming son.

Lol! Really? The negroids were shooting at the cops! That's why they weren't going in to help! If anything the msm was hiding the fact that they were looting. If anyone was paying attention you would remember people taking big screen TVs, beer, shoes, and jerseys.

A good friend of mine is a trucker. He drove supplies down there for months. He said they told him to keep his doors locked and not to get out of the truck while they were waiting to get into the "safe zone" because people were being robbed. Then they would have to go over his truck with mirrors to make sure nobody was hiding underneath trying to get in and steal shit.

Get over it. We don't love in the stone ages. "Welfare Checks" haven't been issued in years. It goes on a debit card which when my company has to pay out vendors we use the same ACH services from JP Morgan. The money is sent out automatically on the specific dates.

Most Fed checks (Social Security, SSDI, and SSD) will go out automatically unless someone tells them to stop. The orders are transmitted on or about the last Thursday of the month to the various regional banking centers where it then causes the deposits to go into your account.

There is back-up. The banks have orders to "re-run" last months checks again if they for any reason do not receive their usual tape or electronic verification. So worst case the checks would be processed but you records might who you got TWO checks for October vs October and November. Dollar amount wouldn't change. But the back-up check would be dated for the previous month (again)

Who cares about dates. The auto-deposits all spend and all too fast today!

I guess they forgot about the LA riots, Katrina, and every previous riot over every stupid football game, not to mention about a thousand examples world wide.

Fuck em. The masses will riot when they dont get checks, or EBT cards dont get refilled. Its a fact and a guarantee.

I don't see that happening.
Too many people depend on these monies.
If the government were to stop payment on these entitlements I can imagine a societal collapse. It is not like it was in the thirties and forties when everyone cared for one another. Now, you have druggies, addicts, alcoholics, racially motivated anger, multiculturalism, an out of control police element, stores stocked with only three days of food and people in general ill prepared for an extended crisis.

If there were an extended blackout. imagine literally millions of starving roaming the streets at night and a police force at home protecting their families.

The potential for disaster is almost biblical in proportion.
