THIS, people, is REAL doom if it is long term. The ramifications are scary. This affects a lot of people, and people get a little cranky when they can't get their pop tarts. Just sayin...

OP, I wish you well and hope things turn around for you. I think some are put off because you post about EBTs being down but you can obviously still afford a cell phone with a data plan or Internet.

Regardless, thanks for the heads up because somewhere out there there are a percentage of welfare zombies who will react badly if they don't get their free stuff.

They won't be thoughtful and post a warning or inquiry here they'll just riot.

OP, I would rather the system provide interim assistance for you than give free stuff to illegals and pot smoking slacker college kids.

Went to pick up some groceries and was told that the system is down so no food stamp usage for now.

Don't know if Chase is having problems or what?

And before anyone calls me a useless eater I've worked all my life and am having some health issues that are preventing me from working right not..but not forever.

Haven't been on it long so don't know is this is unusual or not.

Exactly my point. Go to twitter and type in 'EBT' and you can get a sampling of the mindset there. I came across one person 'jokingly' talking about rioting because of it. *sigh*

I'm not talking about OP, Miggy, or anyone else who has fallen on hard times.

Regardless, there are a whole lot of people who will be going hungry if it doesn't come back up soon, and that's bad news no matter how you slice it.

I hope you're able to get back on your feet soon OP!

In the meantime, check and see if you have any local food banks there that can assist you with some food.

 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa


Thank you Lisa, I will be okay as it's just me and I have rice and some other stuff to get by for a few days. I feel for people with kids.
 Quoting: geminilion


Yea, I feel for the kids too. Many hungry kids in this country and it just shouldn't be.

The amount of food that is thrown into the garbage can each day could probably feed every hungry person in this country. No kidding either.

A few weeks ago I drove behind one of the big fancy supermarkets here to see what they were throwing in the dumpster, and I was prepared to do some dumpster diving if it looked decent.

Well, now their dumpsters hook directly up to the backdoor of the store and it's fully enclosed so you can't see into it or take anything from it.

Ridiculous. You'd think they would let people take it if they wanted to, but no.......it all goes to the trash.

Cell phone? Data plan? LOL..where do you get that? I already posted this is not my internet connection. I have an old Trac Fone that I got last year while working and I hardly ever use it as I don't want to waste minutes.

Also as I've stated, I have worked all of my life (I am 50) and have paid plenty in taxes.

Seriously guys, if you are reliant on food stamps or other government programs you need to try to stock up and prepare NOW as best you can...

The economy is going to blow up around the first of the year and in the months following...

Look at how they are treating victims of Sandy. THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT SAVE YOU!!!

This is true. It's not cheaper than buying eggs...but if life as we know it ends, at least you'll have a source of food for a while. If you have a decent amount of land, they can forage for themselves if push comes to shove.

Yea, my neighbor did that. He had a total of 12 chickens to start. He would let them out in the morning and they would come back at night.

Funny thing was that they would spend most of the day at my place hunting and pecking in the dirt eating insects. I loved watching them. They would climb up on my front steps and all sit there in a row for hours on end. It was sooo entertaining!

Then, one by one, they disappeared and he never did find out what happened to them. I know my neighbor's dog killed a few, and the rest.......well they all just slowly disappeared.

We have fox, bears, owls.....live in the woods. Lots of predators here, so they would have to be caged for their own protection unfortunately.
