USDA directs States to halt SNAP by November 1

Still think the EBT shutdown was just a glitch?
I don’t.

I said on another forum that it was all too coincidental, given the Administration’s propensity to inflict hardship on the citizenry during the partial governmental shutdown (aka Operation Maximum Pain.

Here is all the proof you need, courtesy of the Crossroads Urban Center, Salt Lake City, Utah:

Another shot across the bow.

  1. Creating a National Emergency situation with civil unrest?

  2. I’ve referenced Matt Bracken’s excellent short story before.
    If you haven’t read it, and I highly recommend it, here is the link…What I Saw At The Coup.

  3. Well sure Obama wants people to feel the pain – but personally I’m okay with the shut down. It’s probably billions in federal funds not being spent and maybe it will make some people mad enough to go find a way to support themselves. While I honestly believe in a helping hand when somebody needs it, welfare and food stamps as a way of life is not the answer. People have to stop seeing themselves as victims and start helping themselves.

  4. Another BrBa reference parody, Ozymandias.


    I met a traveller from a bankrupt land

    Who said: Two vast and empty vaults of stone

    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,

    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

    And fly-ridden lip, and sneer of cold command,

    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

    The hand that built that and the heartless Fed:

    And on the teleprompter these words appear:

    “My name is Obamandias, Kenyan king:
Look on my works, ye Whitey, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

    Of that hope and change, boundless and bare

    The lone and level sands stretch far away.

  5. I was taken aback at how much damage had been done to the walmarts in a matter of hours. In a SHTF situation, stores will be stripped in a couple hours. Won’t be 3 days’ food supplies in them.

    • And I will be waiting outside, to relieve them of their ill gotten gain.

      • Well, I’m glad somebody will be. Isn’t it funny (odd, not haha) that the government was actually out of money in May, and death benefits were not halted, national parks weren’t closed and open monuments barricaded, and nobody threatened to cut off the SNAP shit.
