I just realized, if we want to go pick up some things later, are we going to have to worry about some people "performing" in the store over this if it's not fixed by then? Wow, dunno if I want to take my kids out...

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.

Well actually you are misinformed, This person said they worked all their life, so this person paid in to the system for years so in reality they are getting their shit back from the goverment.I have worked all my life and probably paid of a million dollars in taxes and if I ever need assistance I will get it and buy what the fuck I want.Thats my tax money not yours you shit head.Its no crime to take back what the goverment stole from you if you really need it.it would have been yours if they didnt still it.so leave people alone who need help if they have worked before you Dick.I say take everything you can from the goverment before they fuck us all and put us in fema camps. shit they take and take every time I get paid and then they want to destroy our livwes and kill us off? fuck that if you need help get it just try to get off as soon as you can.and fuck this person hes or she is probably been using stamps all their life,fucking loser.

Just called a walmart in IL, they said they're still up and running.

So anyone who is on them in IL better go shopping quicklike, in case this is a cascading effect. At least then you can help your neighbors who don't get the link card, if hard times hit.

I find it so simple minded that we have come to the point wherein we devour each other for some having to ask the system for help while ignoring the trillions of dollars which have been boosted from each and every one of us, dollar by dollar, that the robber barrons have accrued.

Direct your anger at the realtime theft.

We often think of doom being brought on by nuclear war, EMP, X-flare, aliens or bio-terror. No. America is on such shaky ground that all you have to do is shut off food stamps and the empire falls into its own footprint like the twin towers.

And just for clarification, I am a Paramedic, which means I am the most highly trained and HIGHEST PAID member of the ambulance, so consider that the EMT-Basic, who has the same level of dedication and puts up with the same thankless public, gets paid 2/3'rds of what I do.

I just made some calls. It must be areas affected by Sandy. There are so many homeless... maybe this is someone's idea of preventing fraud and verifying EBT cardholder's living arrangements. You realize don't you that to qualify for foodstamps you need to have a verifiable residence with cooking facilities???

This doesn't look good .. That's a pretty sweet site ..

I live a short drive from one of the worst cities in my state .. My husband was at home depot the recently with our work truck and left his giant sized partner in the truck with it running .. this kid on a bike starts backpacking tools out of the back .. his partner got out, like get moving dumb ass .. and this lil old white lady pulled out a pistol on the kid and told him to haul ass .. and said don't go shopping in this city without one of these ..

.. and it's true .. I won't even stop for gas in parts of the city ..

I think I will go to my town market to be safe, even if the food is double the price ..

If it stays down through Thanksgiving there will be full on riots and that is a conservative estimate.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12441154



This is why I think it is hilarious that you people always rattle about removing foodstamp benefit. You really want millions of people around you starving with nothing left to lose? Now, the govt. should force people to work on civil projects if they are unemployed and getting benefits, but to remove them completely WILL result in panic and anarchy.

This is the cost of the govt. and the rich robbing us of all the land and opportunity. You do not own land in this country, the govt. leases every piece of land in the form of property taxes and they will usurp the land if they are not paid. Yet, rubes like all you diehard conservatives continue to support this system because you have risen just high enough to keep your head up to look down your nose at your neighbors.

The rest of us not using EBT should stock up now because things could get much much worse in a day or two and we would need to avoid going out during the rioting.

Right now, many will be mad, but assume it will be back up by tomorrow. Once it is realized it isn't is when it will be too dangerous to go in a grocery store.

I can see that after 5 days you might have someone come and attack you in the parking lot to get your grocery bags or worse yet follow you home.

Re: EBT down in NY...anyone else? (& PA & NJ)
Same story here in PA. I was going to get my EBT card today because I was diagnosed with parsonage turner syndrome and cannot work anymore because it effected my left arm rendering it useless. Cannot move it, bend it lift it or anything, cannot even button my own shirts or tie my shoes anymore. I am only 27 but worked since I was 17 with my hands in the trades, real kick in the balls this was I am just lucky it is my left arm and not my right as I am right handed.

You could still work at a customer service center with one arm.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24238594


Actually I can not, when really looking at all the details of a job it requires two arms to do the work. I have looked at everything the past month and nothing in my area I can do with one arm. Its sad I have thought about a ton of jobs recently and I cannot do anything with the pace a company would want with one arm.
