No food stamps on the first...riots by the third. Martial law by the 10th.

They will not let it happen.
 Quoting: waitn4end




Just saw a story on FOX, all of the "good stuff" will continue (food stamps, Welfare, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, etc.) Can't let the peons get all riled up!

However, I heard about 20 minutes ago that, while they will still pay the active duty military, veterans and their services may not be paid.

Seems to me that (logically) the "veterans" would not be the best group to anger!

Re: Gov Shutdown will affect foodstamps!
As of right now they don't have any idea how to fund it if the government shuts down. Will probably know more tomorrow or Monday and will update further.

Sorry to be cryptic but I can't say anything more at the moment, but Iwork for an agency that handles ebt cards.

Shut it all down, 90% of food stamp recipients are the cause of our problems, they voted for the idiot now let them be the first to pay the price.

this site is full of self righteous sociopaths. Anyone could have their job taken and need help to afford food. Those who cheer - you genuinely deserve the satanic government that you have - of course, you see yourself as 'fighting the good fight' - but its all fiction.

Let them eat cake
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46888961


I know some dogs eat well... Heard this the other day. Apparently someone was trying to buy dog food for their dog, and the clerk wouldn't let them because it wasn't allowed per their ebt card. They told their kid put the dog food back and go get 20 pounds of ground beef. EBT pays for that, so that dog is eating pretty well.
 Quoting: Ddraig


Anyone who does that is obviously scamming the system. The people that do scam the system have an income that is untraceable so they can qualify for benefits.

Jobs off the books, drug dealing, having a paying room-mate, etc. Can you imagine how nice it would be to keep the money you make and then have food, medical and barely any rent to pay? Life is sweet!

For the people who are really struggling there's no way they would buy 20 lbs. of ground beef for their dog. I see the lines of front of some of the churches where I live for food hand outs and lot of them are young people who just drove up in their nice cars. But then there's elderly people wearing thread bare clothing.

I was on one of those lines last year and the lady behind me said she doesn't need the food but it's free! I told her she was taking from someone who really needed it because they only had a limited supply,she just shrugged her shoulders.

I don't know how right Fox is. I just heard a couple talking about getting weird notices about food stamps from the state last week. The girl wasn't too worried since he just got a job but she said she'd never gotten a letter like it the last time the government almost shut down.

Re: Gov Shutdown will affect foodstamps!
Some of you people are sick in the head. The elite MADE society this hard to get by. I know quite a few people who WORK their butts off, but without a little government help, would not be able to make it at all.

All of you assume that everyone who uses food stamps, are somewhere living it up, with eight kids. STOP compartmentalizing everybody, because not EVERYONE is the same. Not EVERYONE abuses our privilegedes and some hate having to rely on the government (although you do as well).

I CAN guarantee you this though. When the dollar crashes and your measly little gold and silver won't help you, you'll all be rushing to get your RFID's.

People need to realize that not everyone has it easy, it's life. However, you shouldn't be looking down at others. Like, people look down on the homeless, yet when the economy crashes, they'll be the best survivors out of everybody.

Any chance it just won't be funded? That would make the takers (many are the same people) choose between their foodstamps and Obamacare (the government can start back up if the Senate agrees to delay Obamacare for one more year.)

No, the homeless rely on handouts, whether from shelters, soup kitchens or passers by. And they don't have homes so their health is already worse. I don't see them with a lot of coping skills that would work well if TSHTF.

No way I could have any sympathy for these parasites. It would be one thing if these people were nice and appreciated the help from the tax payers but every one of them I've seen in the super markets are rude, obnoxious and look at working people like they hate you. They make me sick.

If they had any decency they would quit giving credit to the Government for the freebies and thank the tax payers. I have not seen them ever take out an ad in the newspaper thanking the tax payer for their handouts. The hell with them...let the bastards starve for all I care.

I suppose they are just too stupid to understand that this free ride cannot go on forever before they destroy the host. They will be the first ones out of here if TSHTF and they haven't even figured that out either. Everyone hates them and their attitudes just makes it 10 times as bad. They will reap what they have sown and have no one other than themselves to blame for the hostility vented toward them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47533613


OK. What's YOUR solution for all this? Tell them to get a job? There are no jobs, and certainly none that will pay enough to put food on table and keep a roof over the head. So, again I ask what's your solution? The jobs were all shipped to China decades ago.

There are about 100 million people on these food stamps, that's apprx 1 in 3 Americans. So they are all parasites?

You remind me of a guy I used to work with, he used to talk like you all the time, he lost his job, lost his house, everything, he now works at walmart and has to have food stamps to support himself and his family. Another parasite right? I bet he doesn't talk like that anymore. Could be you on the government food program tomorrow, don't throw stones.

I rode by a few of these poorasites hanging outside a handout hole of some sort. A friend of mine had his phone swiped at the bar next door when he made a delivery.

I had just completed a 47-mile bike ride and then an Oktoberfest with the other riders. A fun crowd of happy, energetic people, loving life.

The poorasites glared at me, probably wanted to steal my bike and sell it for meth. The nasty stares the entitlement gang gives are reason enough to hate them.
