Americas EBT system was taken off-line yesterday for about seven hours in seventeen states for (latest excuse) computer maintenance. Right in the middle of a busy Saturday! Now that is either really pathetic planning, or intentional. One or the other. And the mother of all surprises - "The federal EBT website was unavailable due to the government shutdown."
Me thinks it felt more than a bit like a drill. Or a dry run maybe? For fact someone will glean some very useful information like - how will the people actually react? And who will the people blame? And, like - how long does the information stay out there before people notice the fire is out but in the meantime have started cleaning the shelves which the mean ol truckers are not restocking. Owe! Can we say scapegoat! So this fertile mind conjures up the impossible.
Really dawhlink! It's not possible it was a dry run!
From Zero Hedge - Foodstamp Nation In Turmoil: EBT System Goes Dark, "Glitch" Blamed
"In the past five years it has become apparent that America can survive a near-fatal financial system collapse, an economy teetering on the edge and kept ticking only thanks to the Fed's now perpetual QE, a collapsing standard of living for everyone but the wealthiest 0.1%, declining wages, zero interest rates, surging food, energy, rent, tuition and welfare costs, and pretty much everything else, as long as the welfare state keeps humming along. Any by welfare state we mostly mean providing the daily bread to the nearly 50 million Americans living in poverty and surviving only thanks to the only thing to have exploded to epic record highs under Obama (in addition to the Fed's balance sheet of course): foodstamp usage. However, the true stability of the US may be tested very soon following reports that due to a "possible computer glitch" the Electronic Benefits Transfer System, aka EBT, ala Foodstamps, is offline. Cue mass panic among the best-weaponized population in the world. Naturally, this latest fiasco involving a country that has grown accustomed to sucking on the government's teat was immediately blamed on a "glitch" - just like everything else that is slowly but surely breaking in the New Normal."
No it couldn't have anything to do with making "it hurt as much as possible" cause (now sing along here children) Guvment loves us this we know, for Obama told us so.... and you know how the rest of it goes.
