So you think the foodstamp outage was a glitch? (changed title)
Call me a conspiracy theorist, but there was a reason that a handful of POOR states were affected by the outage.
It was a test, a chance to see what would happen if we took away foodstamps.
It's coming... what are you doing to prepare, building up a cash supply? Or better yet a food supply?
Take 20 dollars a week out of your snap and buy shelf stable foods and rotate them. Get a few months worth of stock up. Also start incorporating them into your diet so you can figure out what you like and dont like and how to prepare your food storage.
Start eating less.... America is FAT, our serving sizes are through the roof. look up how much you SHOULD be eating, and start paying attention to labels. Only eat the reccomended portions for you. By doing this you will make your food last longer becasue you wont "need" as much when it comes time to crunch.
Cut out the crap food and buy whole foods.
Good Luck Guys... We are going to need it.
