Bring the PAIN
11/07/2012 | freeatlanta

Posted on 11/07/2012 3:14:25 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

The house Republicans need to defund EBT cards if a deal isn't made on Sequestration.

It will happen at some time. Right now, we are geared up to handle the riots. Let's get it on.

Elections have consequences. Those Obama paid voters need to feel some pain. Clubber Lane predicts.... Pain


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Society
KEYWORDS: ebt; house; sequestration; spendingcontrols
I am very serious about this. Defund those insidious EBT cards. Offer emergency 10 per week emergency rations to be delivered or picked up.

Make these moochers feel the pain, and let Obozo and his DNC minions in the Senate feel some heat.

If you lose your job, through no fault of your own, will you be one of those ‘moochers?’ If someone is homeless, where do they deliver those rations to and what do they cook them on?

I’m convinced the holders of these EBT cards are THE locust swarm spoken of in the Bible.

I love your idea, and you would think that any thinking person would. This forum now has, however, a significant number of looters and leeches who feel quite entitled to those cards. They will flame and call us dreadful names for daring to take away what they are too lazy to work for. Oh, and they have every excuse for why they *can’t* work -— even though there are always jobs for those who truly want to work.

Better yet I would like to see the house shut down all non essential government "services". The federal unions are muscle of the marxists. We don't have a budget. When the extension runs out, shut it down, until a responsible budget can be passed.

Let's get down to brass tacks.

Way to gain support with those who already think we are too purist. Attempt to cut off funding to those in the most need. I am sure Harry Reid will go along with that. How about a more moderate proposal? Propose drug testing EBT recipients. If I have to be subject to drug testing to earn a paycheck much of which goes to the government to pay for their EBT, why shouldn’t they have to be subject to drug testing to receive my money? Seems much more reasonable and sets up a better political argument. If they are truly need of my assistance to pay for their food, then so be it. Happy to help. If they are using my money to buy drugs, that’s a different ball game. Much better argument than let the poor starve.

You DO realize how much these “things” purchase, right?

I lost my cool when I saw that the looters could mail a package with them and buy crap-”food” in the convenience store.

Let’s return to breadlines...it was good enough for my grandfather, and the majority of our brethren could use a dose of humility—EBT cards HIDE the fact they exist off other people.

In the next few years, they will be worthless at the rate of spending and debt we are building. It is better to do this now when we can provide survival or care packages than when nothing can be done and people are left to starve to death rather than just be inconvenience.

I really don't give a rats butt. We are not getting their vote anyway. Maybe, Obama and the Democrats will share some of the blame when the cards stop working. You know, president in power when things stop working....

EBT cards are WAY TOO EASY. Get rid of them. The soup line proposal is good, too. We can't afford the excessiveness and as the President said, vote for revenge... he didn't say who would be getting the revenge.

First of all, it’s Clubber Lang.

Second of all, you’re dreaming if you think that will EVER happen.

Thirdly, thanks for taking the time to post, and I hope you are doing well.

I don’t do much grocery shopping, so I don’t get to see many food-stampers. But this evening I stopped off at Braum’s (it’s a burger/ice cream/milk&eggs chain) for my weekly milk&eggs, and found myself in line behind one - a nicely-dressed middle-aged woman who swiped her Lone Star card for a bag of ice. Then she walked over to the ice cream bar and paid cash for her sundae. As I drove away, I saw her getting into her late-model PT Cruiser.

“Living in poverty” used to be unpleasant. Today, not so much.

It isn't going to work now because over half of your voters don't yet realize there is a problem. sigh.

Interesting. Just yesterday it occurred to me that if Revelations is true, Mitt had no chance to win.

I think I might get an EBT card so I can stock up on dry goods and other Prep products.

What do you think?

good idea.

After Hurricane Sandi,
One problem in Staten Island and NY was with the power out
= EBT cards don;t work.

Therefore, they can’t pay cash for their food.

So get your prepper supplies BEFORE the riots and power outages!!!!!

with your EBT card!!!!

What is the level of food stamps we should have in this country?
47 million. 100 million????

We are already spending 75 billion per year on food stamps.
That’s the same
amount the “obama tax increase rates” on > 200,000 to Clinton rates 39%’
would bring in.

So, we are already going to be in the hole even WHEN Boehner
cries and capitulates to taxes on the “rich.” The FOOD STAMP BUDGET
ALONE WILL HIT 100 BILLION per year NOW THAT OBAMA IS REELECTED.

Sorry folks.

Prepare for the eventual riots when in 2016 we can’t borrow any more
to fund the government.

People will riot cause I ain’t got no EBT money on my EBT card!
Ain’t no EBT! Ain’t no EBT!!! riots in all the land.

BTW, it might also be good if Conservatives start considering our own Cloward and Piven strategy.

If a financial collapse happens soon enough, we will still have a military that can hold off foreign nations while order is restored. Also, there are enough armed civilians to handle the wild rioting.

I hate even hypothesizing that, but I have read others saying it.

Those EBT recipients are just the frosting. The real beneficiaries of the SNAP program are Big Ag (food processors), Evil Junk Food (YUM, et al)and the grocery stores, which includes unionized employees. Collateral beneficiaries are the truckers. I have no idea how many of them are Teamsters or other union.

SNAP, I have read, is most of the Ag Bill.

I think “Bill Clinton” was on the right track with workfare.
For one thing it can be explained compassionately.
Have always heard people are psycologically better off if they have a job.
Never understood why Republicans never say something like work is good for the soul.
Doesn’t everyone want to work? /rhetorical question

I was talking to a lady recently and I said, I worked with a guy, political surveys by phone, who was twisted up in a wheel chair.
Then she told me she knew a women who was a PARAPLEGIC who was a dispatcher.

At the very least welfare folks should have to go somewhere and if they don’t work they sit and wait for 8 hours to get their g’mint check.
Likewise, food should be g’mint food lines that require you to wait in line for 30 minutes to an hour.

Nully, I have wavered between belief in God and Science for most of my life.

Science makes sense, but every once in a while I feel.... Love.
Is that God? I don’t know.

It’s just that if there is a God, and He has made this plan, how can we fight it? To what end?

And if there isn’t “a God”, why does all this bible stuff seem to keep coming true?

Ack. I’m just verklempt, as usual.

FreeAtlanta ~ Sure there is. We are part of the family of Israeal.

BIBLICAL source please?

Please! I've never seen a Biblical source for that assertion and I've looked and looked and looked.

Now, of all times, I could really use the reassurance.

Ever see The Fallen Ones? As SciFi Movie channel originals go, one of the best, if you ignore the giant walking wicker-man. After all, just how far wrong can you go with Tom Bosley cast as a Rabi?

Anyway, Rabbi Eli Schmitt, has occasion to ask Satan about his plans in person.

Satan lays them out.

Although he claims he is "by no means an expert on the Book of Revelations, but I have often thought that the Christians had something right when they depicted the end of the world," Rabi Schmitt says, "there is nothing you describe in there, YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL!"

Satan gently responds, "But I have to try, Rabi, it is what I do." then kills him.

Fighting evil is what I do. There is no shame in failing, especially if it is part of His plan.

Although I have no certainty of His existance, (faith-blind, remember?) I don't feel the Love, the Ecstasy, the Warmth of His breath on my cheek, or His hand on my shoulder, if He exists, I have little choice but to follow His plan. Even if that is to fail, even if that is certain death, even if I have no hope of any eternal reward.

It is what I must do.
