Unemployment checks, food stamps, and active military pay being cut
A friend of mine that collects unemployment received a letter stating how due to the government shutdown he would no longer be receiving it. I have heard a few military personnel stating how they aren't getting their paychecks...
The ball is rolling?

I get it
I just don't think that it will go over peacefully.
Many people will not be able to get by, and they will blame the government... to little too late.
Curious if it leads to any riot type activity though?

I find it funny that there is no money to pay active duty military...but there is plenty of money to give the retro pay after the fact.

Seems a bit like bully tactics.

The only people in this shit box country that are entitled to money from the gov are soldiers and that is ONLY because they signed a contract with the gov that stated if they served XYZ they would X$ for X time. Everyone else, including the boomers sucking off of social security, are not entitled to shit. Nobody signed a contract with the gov that stated if the gov held X out of each paycheck they would get X back in X years in the form of SS. Everyone who allowed the gov the take money from their paycheck for the ponzi scheme known as SS did so voluntarily with nothing in writing stating it would ever be returned them.

I guess unemployment in the short run isn't welfare since I guess employers pay into that fund but after 6 months it does because welfare because by that point whatever your employer paid into the fund has been drained by you.

I don't even need to comment on WIC, pell grants, food stamps, SNAP, HUD and all the other "free" shit losers get who don't ever pay in nearly as much as they suck out.

Shut it all down and let the chips fall where they way.

Honestly. I whole agree completely in a sense. Most of those types of people hold a sense of entitlement though. That can potentially lead to violence. Reality is a bitch, and most people have been in a fantasy world that is about to take a nose dive..my 2c

What doesn't make sense is that Hawaii just sent out letters that stated foodstamps would be increasing October 1st

Re: Unemployment checks, food stamps, and active military pay being cut
So check this out

was in town today running errands with a friend, one of which was my friend applying for foodstamps. They took her app but then told her their system was down and wouldn't be back up till next Tuesday. But she was to call first incase it doesn't come back up.

As we were leaving, I had the opportunity to ask the intake worker if it had something to do with the possible government shutdown...on Tuesday. She paused, looked like she wanted to say something, then answered that they were 'reprogramming'.

I posted a couple days ago an letter from the navy stating in the event of a shut down that all military pay was on hold, but that they would all be reimbursed once the shut down is over.
Not a big deal for the guys living on base, and less so for the officers.

But imagine being an E-3 or 4 supporting a wife and kid, living off base..
This whole thing has the potential to ruin lives.

While at the same time I fully support abolishing and restarting the fed gov...

Unemployment is NOT funded by the Federal Government! It is funded by employers! I know I am one. they have been kicking in some small cash amounts, but not that much. In Indiana the Feds portion is $25.00, so if your checks are not coming its because your state robbed the kitty! As for the Military ONLY non essential military personal will not be getting checks I.E. contractors Etc... Our government and the interest on the debt is and will remain FULLY funded period. Don't buy what these ass hats are selling.

To the contrary I am totally aware, and well read on history Thank you! This so called shut down of government however has NOTHING to do with the fall of this Empire! That began with the death of JFK. What's happening here is much doomier!, and deeper. I am merely stating that the panic by the masses is what they need and it is totally warrantless. Don't buy what their selling it will force them to alter their plan AGAIN. eventually the Vail will be completely removed as they are running out of plays and it is the two min warning in the fourth quarter. Vigilance wins wars!
