Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon (not only Utah)
FOX 13 News Salt Lake City ^ | October 14, 2013 | Nineve Dinha

States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

Thatís according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families donít get food stamps, theyíll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.

It looks like Obama plans to "stop the music" and instigate nationwide food riots in November.

This will be blamed on Evil White Racist Tea Party Republicans.

I feel like it's Berlin, 1933, and my name is Goldstein.

Prepare for chaos beginning in November.

Last Saturday’s “EBT glitch” was probably just a test and a warning shot to the GOP.

And the bitching thing is that many “conservatives” piss themselves and parrot the same BS. Then they wonder why the GOPe is tanking in the polls.

Hmm now I wonder why he would choose Utah over a state like say Michigan or Illinois.../s

This is going to backfire badly on The One especially since he lives like a king (actually greater than any king ever has lived)

In Utah, if a family is in need, another family will help them.

I don’t find it unusual that a Utah reporter (LDS?) wrote it. The same USDA memo has probably gone out to all 50 states, but the Utah reporter “blew the cover.” You are right, the LDS will step up. Probably nowhere else will the EBT cutoff be as contained.

Florida ends 10/31...

Stock up on ammo and foodstuffs. I've got enough to live lean for a short period. I don't have enough house to store large food stores, so I'm praying it doesn't last more than a few months. Thankfully the Florida winters are relatively mild, and there's plenty of good hunting in my neck of the woods if food gets scarce.

Patrick had something to say about this...

“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.”

Sounds about right. If they are feeling froggy, let 'em jump. It won't be easy, but it may very well be the only way to restore the Republic.

The next revolution race riot is just three missed meals denied EBT purchases away.

Pissing off food stamp recipients will not hurt Republicans. Those people would never voted Republican and never will, no matter what.

On the other hand, when they go zombie and tear cities apart, the Republican base and some independents are going to be more energized to cut them off.

Seems I remember these LDS families buying in bulk for their large families, usually at Sam’s and BJ’s, 50 lb bags of rice and pallets of food with their food stamps. They have long been ‘bleeding the beast’, with their multiple wives and kids.

A good start. Make the fathers ante up.

Then you have two choices... You can either have faith that your God will see our side win in a conflict against the forces of Lucifer, or that by trusting in Jehovah's plan your reward in Heaven is assured.

Which will it be? Holy Crusader? Or passively die with your faith intact?

Because, your choices are getting thinner by the day.

I would love it if someone could prove me wrong.

Exactly. Engineered food riots and deliberate starvations are part of the Communist playbook.

The one that Obama studied all his life.

“Now referred to as “fundamental transformation”.”

Lenin’s communism has always been referred to as “fundamental transformation”. Obama doesn’t have a single original thought in his tiny savage brain.

This is a huge opportunity for the Mormons to get some great public relations and do recruiting. Each Mormon family is supposed to stock provisions enough for six months in case of disaster. The church itself likely has warehouses full of food.

They also have the logistics to distribute it. They could likely create a statewide equivalent of EBT in short order, which would be ridiculously honest compared to EBT, plus they would likely get the full support of the state of Utah, which could bulk purchase farm surplus to augment the system.

The message needs to immediately go out to state governments to buy up as much surplus food as they can right now, particularly from local farmers. Crops are coming in, so there may be some surplus crops as well, that can be purchased cheaper.

While states probably do not have the time to set up their own food relief programs before November 1, they can distribute food through existing, non-federal programs, until they do.

Adm. James Stockdale said, in reflection on his time in the Hanoi Hilton:

This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be."

The memo referenced here is dated 10/11, the day before the "glitch". Yeah, that was a test of the Emergency Mayhem System.
