17 states had foodstamps issues. They couldn't be used. People freaked the fuck out. People were being vicious on cafemom, fb, people were going nuts in stores arguing with the cashiers and managers.

Now part of me wonders if this was a governmental test. I know..I know. But maybe it was the government seeing what may happen if they do default and decide not to pay anything.

Hmmm. It was (and may still be) a huge mess! People need their "stamps". lol

I really can't speculate on what caused the down time. Other than that, I've tried to type up what I want to say 3 times and I just can't make it come out right, so I suppose that's all I'm going to say.

We as Americans would come together to feed our fellow Americans. I believe that the WIC being cut off is what is really going to hurt mothers and then DHS is going to use it against parents as a reason to take their child into state custody. State gets money for each child they have in custody. Obama care also tied a grant to Obama care encouraging DHS to start home based programs with high risk families. A high risk family is a mother under 21, parent that smoke, drinks, or has had an addiction in the past, home schooled children are at high risk according to this grant, and even military families who are currently active or have been deployed multiple times. If you are not turned into DHS then how are they going to come to our house and check on us only bc we fall into these categories. Sounds funny to me

I agree that Americans should help each other rather than taxpayer money. I don't believe all these federally funded programs actually help people in that they come to rely on the government for survival.

Quoting AngienChrist:

I was in the commissary today and an announcement was on a loop stating ebt wasn't being accepted as payment at the moment due to a regional glitch of some sort. It is a little strange the timing of this "glitch". I just read that it was due to an upgrade and not the shutdown. Hmm.
