Re: EBT down in NY...anyone else? (& PA & NJ)
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!!!
 Quoting: Saddletramp


Saddletramp is correct. In additon, there were rumors that this was going to happen to bank debit cards as well and also the possibility of a bank holiday after the elections. As a precaution we decided to put some cash aside for this type of emergency and recently purchase some extra items (motion sensor lights, oatmeal, soup, 20lb flour, rice, sugar, et). We store it in those plastic storage containers for dog food.)

BTW - there is a killer, very simple recipe for making bread and flour is cheap just using flour, water, yeast and salt. Has hard crust like french bread - moist in center.


Recipe vary a bit. The one we use is 19 hours for raising.

Recipe: No-Knead Bread
[link to www.nytimes.com]

3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
¼ teaspoon instant yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
1 5/8 cups water
 Quoting: Alexander


Thanks so much for this recipe .. Sounds great ..

Is this just EBT, or are all electronic transactions (credit, debit cards) affected too ?

It always amazes me that the people kicking others when they are down are just a job lay off away from being there themselves and act like it could never happen to them.

All the people giving OP are hard time have just heaped bad karma onto themselves for the near future.

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.

Good. I for one will never commit to or convert to ISLAM. NEVER. They are in all our countries infecting us and demanding their own territories and threatening to kill all those who will not convert.

I will never accept Sharia Law in my country of Canada and nor should anybody else. My tolerance is gone.

God help Britian and the UK and pray for those people for they have already been invaded and were next.

Who's ready to convert to Islam and Sharia Law...? Were next...!

Mind you my friend is in his 70s and in terrible health- not some young punk who retired early!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11995984


Why the fuck are you on food stamps?
 Quoting: AmericanJedi


Because there are no jobs, bankers get billions and you get the bill.

Because Washington DC uses our paychecks as their personal EBT card.

Because, health problems happen.

Because jobless and layoffs in a depression happen.

Because you get old and it becomes hard to even open a jar of peanut butter.

Because they paid for it with their tax money.

Because no old or poor person or child should ever go without food while we spend trillions on jets, tanks, bombs and billions of dhs bullets.

If you take 1/2 of a workers income for life at the point of a gun, they have a right to EXPECT some help.

Please have some human compassion, i promise it will help you sleep at nite.

Btw, not everybody who needs help is like the folks in that bet video, some are your neighbors and others your grandparents.

Also, I am not unfortunate enough to yet need such services, I work like a slave, I am middle class and my preps have cost me a fortune, and perhaps in time my marriage... But it's our duty to take care of our family, and have compassion for our peers, no matter what the system says to divide us.

It's what makes you rise above and stand apart from the banker, bureaucrat and eugenicist.

Thanks for listening.

JP Morgan has reported a technical problem that prevents EBT transactions, food purchases and cash benefit withdrawals at ATM machines from being processed statewide. This problem is also preventing calls from going through to the EBT hotline phone number (1-888-328-6399). JPMorgan and OTDA are working quickly to resolve these problems.

To OP and everyone else who is having a hard time making ends meet: please ignore the ignorant rantings of those on here who have never needed help to get back on their feet. I wonder how many of them claim to be Christians...

And yes, I know that there are plenty who abuse the system...the folks on here don't seem to be among them so calm down.

Anyhow, this outage is potentially a really big deal for the entire US. I couldn't think of a worse time for it to happen, really. Plenty of hungry, desperate people will eventually either get violent or do whatever the govt. tells them to do.

To everyone calling people on foodstamps names and blasting them with hate. I am a paramedic, I am employed at 56 hours a week, helping the sick and elderly, and my family still qualifies for foodstamps. Think about that while you are spilling your self-righteous hate. Your policeman, fireman, or ambulance personnel get paid so little we qualify for this benefit. So while you sleep at night and we are selflessly protecting you think on this.

I said earlier - "Maybe it's a move on the political chess board - The looming Fiscal Cliff and it's right before Thanksgiving and the mean old rich Republicans won't raise taxes because they don't give a damn about you.

If they would just raise taxes and go along with Barak, you'd be able to swipe that card."

Regardless if it's intentional or not - and it probably isn't - the reaction is the same: Blame Republicans.

This is the Fruit of Obama coming into full-bloom.
