MIAMI (AP) Millions of food stamp recipients in 10 states were unable to use their debit cards for about six hours Friday after an outage at JPMorgan Chase.

Bank spokesman Mike Fusco apologized for the inconvenience and said the technical glitch was resolved around 1 p.m. Friday, but he declined to discuss details of what exactly went wrong.

So the reality of their situation was revealed to them for 6 hours?

If their was a Jerry Springer marathon on that day I doubt any of the would have noticed.

Oh, and what the hell is this?

“Angry users took to social media to express their frustration in the busy grocery shopping days before Thanksgiving.

One woman tweeted, “They have about 50 signs on Publix door saying the (hash)EBT machine is down for Ga!!!””

Social media? Tweeted? THANKSGIVING????

I thought you people were supposedly too broke to buy a meal? How on earth are you tweeting jack? Why are you using this stuff to buy some sort of Thanksgiving feast????

They have free Obamaphones and a lot of minutes of service.
Also $10/mo high speed internet.

What? No food to feed their children?

"Check the cable news channels on the big screen and see what's up!"
"Grab the Bamaphone - call 911!"
"There must be something about it on my computers! Log onto the web! Check my chat sites!"

"My chillin' gotta eat! Somebodies gotta be held responsible for my kids!"

You know it’s funny that you too have noticed that. We have a huge Super Walmart not far from our house. IF you get there about 10 or 11am there is absolutely noone there. Noon or later they are mobbed.
I always tell Hubby....gotta get to Walmart before the Free Shit Crowd gets out of bed.

Millions of EBT Cardholders Starve to Death.

Women and children hurt the most.

I put up a vanity post Friday when my wife’s bank lost its wire service. I’m still suspecting cyber warfare. Possibly tied to Iran.
