    Things may start to get dicey at the local food pantry I volunteer at. Our "clientele" may try to demand we make up the difference. Ain't gonna happen!

    It was not 150B in cash as alluded - although there are reports of 1.7B being carried as US cash and brought on USAF planes just before the election.

    Rather it was payment made as reconciliation for "damages" caused by the ongoing sanctions - and intended to undo "verified claims" against the US by Iranian business.

    Yunno. Mulla friend and business owner orders parts for his centrifuges from US provider. US business takes payment, and US Government confiscates the centrifuge parts.

    Damages - yes. Something we actually should be selling them? No.

    Like any claim, one can be sure Iran asked for TWICE what they thought the US/Obama would agree to - and Obama rolled on everything. Because we're all together in this world, of course. Global citizen.

    Spit.

    https://www.breitbart.com/live/secon...-billion-iran/

    Algemeiner, citing Omri Ceren of the Israel Project, notes, the twelve-figure estimate of the money the deal would return to Iranian control came from President Barack Obama, not Republicans. President Obama said in an interview that Iran “has $150 billion parked outside the country,” arguing that not all of its funds under sanctions will be unfrozen immediately because “unwinding the existing restraints… takes a certain amount of time.”

    This money does not include a separate $1.7 billion payment to the government of Iran, allegedly to atone for an arms sales agreement that never went through after the 1979 Islamic revolution. The U.S. government handed over that money the same day that Iran released several American citizens imprisoned on dubious charges.

    I have seen all races use EBT.

    Been in checkout lines, where I was the only one,
    paying either with cash or bank card,
    in front of me, and behind me, EBT all the way.

    The vast majority have been Africans.

    Most Africans simply do not, and will not work.
    In fact, many of them consider working to be a form
    of slavery, and they believe, that they are owed the
    welfare benefits that are given to them,
    because of the legacy's of slavery and Jim Crow.

    I have spoken of this before. The current situation in the FUSA,
    is like a powder house, with kegs of spilled power.
    One of the spilled kegs of powder, with a very short trail
    of loose powder, that with the slightest spark or flame,
    will blast the powder house into a million pieces,
    is the EBT system.

    Just let the EBT system go down for a week, 10 days,
    for whatever reasons, and all hell will consume
    the feckless FUSA.

    Best that you be far far away, from any area that has
    a high usage of EBT, far far away.

    As a very pessimistic, conspiracy theorist/doomer/prepper,
    I always look for the absolute worse in everything.

    If something bad can happen it will,
    and something bad will happen, before something good.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    In honour of the brave Whites in South Africa,
    as they fight against their genocide.

    I pray for the White race in South Africa,

    There are so many food banks and clothing banks in this town and it's probably that way everywhere in the US of A. No reason for any to starve probably won't get lobster or prime rib like with food stamps. Be interesting to see what happens.

    When the rioting starts, those places will be the first to get looted and robbed. Won't be open long.

    Missing a meal or wanting some candy, beer, n such is not the type of hungry I was talking about.

    More so the equivalent of a medieval city under long term siege hungry. No gobt services, no resupplied stores to loot, nothing available and fuel even running out and no resupply to fuel stores etc.

    That level of hunger brings groups to their knees over weeks where they can't do much of anything.

    Most of us have no idea what true hungry is in America. Thank God for that.

    Yeah, but you have to go through the "I WILL EAT ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING" stage before you get to the "i cant even move i'm so hungry" stage. And that first stage is where the window-breaking, food-stealing, neighbor-cooking, baby-eating part comes in.

    Hmm, well gang you are letting your Doomer Porn fantasies have free reign. So, here is how Doomer Doug sees the SNAP situation. First, I now get $176 in SNAP benefits, down from $200 three years ago. I get them since I am nearly 65, retired, on Social Security and now Medicare. I played the game for nearly 45 years, was in the US Army, so the way I figure it, I am going to take what I can, as much as I can, as fast as I can, at least until the entire system collapses. This is why I am on food stamps, and retired at age 62. If that makes me a "mooch," then I got no problem with that at all.

    Ergo, my understanding is the January SNAP payment, which I get on the fourth of each month, will be okay. There "may be," some issues with the February SNAP payment on the fourth, and if so, I won't get my usual direct deposit. By the way, there are no "food stamps," but only debit card style physical cards, with direct deposit and voucher deductions at time of purchase. It is also IMPOSSIBLE to buy either alcohol or smokes using SNAP cards, unless you go to a small retailer, run by a scam artist, and do it that way.

    At any rate, a few points here. First, any problems in February will be in extreme cold weather and people, especially Nowski's famous blacks, will not riot in 25 F temps, nor will they do much of anything until they HAVE TO because they are now starving. It will also be the case that the card dates will mean people will run out of food on a rotating basis. Finally, it will be a political circus designed to make Trump look evil, like the dead kids on the border. The politics of that will color any "riots." The media coverage of starving "low income African babies," will be emphasized and any real violence will be covered up, at least the Democrats will try that. Out in the real world video of Black Sambos burning and looting won't play well, so they will go for the welfare queen screaming she doesn't have infant formula for baby number six. Further, and this is where things are going to get interesting, Nowski is what happens when the ILLEGAL ALIEN, AND MUSLIM REFUGEE HORDES START PROTESTING. I mean I look forward to the day, Nowski when Pelosi and Schummer hold a press conference screaming that Muslim Refugees and illegals aren't getting food stamps. Given the ID politics now rampant in the "new" marxist Democrat Party, we may see open fighting inside the Democrat Party as various politicians fight over whether the Black Africans, Muslim Refugees, or Illegals get back to the trough first!

    This level of evil is beyond my understanding.
    Which level of “evil”?
    The evil of shutting down the government?
    Of the evil of having children in order to get benefits?

    My take, is that once the rioting begins, Trump has all he needs to declare Martial Law, take over the tv stations and newspapers and radio stations. , shoot, I forgot to get in a year supply of organic, non-gmo popcorn. Argh!

    I think you nailed it.

    I imagine that if we have a prolonged shut-down, the local churches and food pantries will have a food drive. I was surprised at how much everyone stepped up at Christmas. We also have churches in the area that are serving suppers (rotating through the week), so it's possible to get a least one hot meal a day, no questions asked, if you can get to those churches. That's how some of the elderly who fell through the cracks have been surviving.

    I have no problems with cutting aid anyway. Let someone else step up. We've got our share of needy homeless and elderly.

    The problem with food bank food is that as a temporary measure it is great, but as the UK is finding out; the very poor who often end up existing on it can have rather severe health problems living on packages of white pasta, sugar cereal and other processed cast-offs of the grocery world.

    It is better than nothing and in both Ireland and the UK there is no food program (beyond some school lunches) so if "the dole" check only pays the rent (as can happen in Dublin or London) then there is no money left for food.

    So the dependence on the food banks can become nearly total; the other issue is that supplies to food banks (and what they are allowed to accept) is limited and is likely to run out in the areas where they are most needed.

    Personally, I will be surprised if something isn't done to make sure people don't go without the basics, but I wouldn't put it past Trump to hand out ration/staples cards and do that via the back door as a matter of national "emergency."

    Meemur, the other thing that may get, as the Laugh In actor playing the Nazi and saying "inteeeereesting," may put it is this. Assuming there is some kind of re certification process, to confirm people should be getting SNAP once the government shut down is done, you may see all the illegals, Muslims and others, finally get outed and dropped. It may also be the case that in order to get SNAP restored after the shutdown, you have to be recertified and meet the new "work requirements, or show proof of citizenship. Of course, that ain't going to happen in the BIG FIVE BLUE STATES: New York, California, Oregon, Washington, and the North East. But Red States "may" take the opportunity a shutdown offers to do some poking around and purge their SNAP lists.

    OH BOY, WON'T THAT SET OFF A FIRESTORM!

    I'd like to see recertification happen. The money needs to be going to the homeless vets and elderly.

    Overall, though, I'm not sure the shut-down will last long enough for any of this to happen. I expect some sort of face-saving measure for both sides to be enacted very soon. I hope the shut-down does continue for a long time! But I think the "shadow government" might end it. They have upcoming wars to prep for and don't want DJT doing monkey wrenching on that scale.

    Another issue is it tends to be stuff no one really eats. Benn there done that-most of what saw was a hunk of bread, pat of butter, sack of rice, some canned beans.

    Was not enough to even live on and, as a Diabetic it was not either nutritionally viable for me to try to subsist on nor was it palatable without additional things. Because I know how to cook and also know how to shop to make meager things go a long way it was a viable addition but, the average person was not going to even get-by on the stuff.

There "may be," some issues with the February SNAP payment on the fourth, and if so, I won't get my usual direct deposit. By the way, there are no "food stamps," but only debit card style physical cards, with direct deposit and voucher deductions at time of purchase. It is also IMPOSSIBLE to buy either alcohol or smokes using SNAP cards, unless you go to a small retailer, run by a scam artist, and do it that way.

    At any rate, a few points here. First, any problems in February will be in extreme cold weather and people, especially Nowski's famous blacks, will not riot in 25 F temps, nor will they do much of anything until they HAVE TO because they are now starving. It will also be the case that the card dates will mean people will run out of food on a rotating basis. Finally, it will be a political circus designed to make Trump look evil, like the dead kids on the border. The politics of that will color any "riots." The media coverage of starving "low income African babies," will be emphasized and any real violence will be covered up, at least the Democrats will try that. Out in the real world video of Black Sambos burning and looting won't play well, so they will go for the welfare queen screaming she doesn't have infant formula for baby number six. Further, and this is where things are going to get interesting, Nowski is what happens when the ILLEGAL ALIEN, AND MUSLIM REFUGEE HORDES START PROTESTING. I mean I look forward to the day, Nowski when Pelosi and Schummer hold a press conference screaming that Muslim Refugees and illegals aren't getting food stamps. Given the ID politics now rampant in the "new" marxist Democrat Party, we may see open fighting inside the Democrat Party as various politicians fight over whether the Black Africans, Muslim Refugees, or Illegals get back to the trough first!

    Overall, though, I'm not sure the shut-down will last long enough for any of this to happen. I expect some sort of face-saving measure for both sides to be enacted very soon. I hope the shut-down does continue for a long time! But I think the "shadow government" might end it. They have upcoming wars to prep for and don't want DJT doing monkey wrenching on that scale.
    Er, which “upcoming wars” are you referring to here?

    I’m thinkng that all that we are seeing on the world and domestic stage are merely distractions intended to blindside everyone from the next overt act in the Q saga, where the Deep State principles, and their MSM lackies, and their Central World Banks are suddenly missing in action

    This is the same hog wash that was bantered about during the last two shut downs. NOTHING EVER HAPPENED!


    DEMON rat scare tactics to rile the riff raff.


    Oh my>>>>the POOR federal employees>>>>most of whom are on break 6 hours of the eight hour shift and who earn AT LEAST TWICE as much as the private sector>>>>>my heart just BLEEDS for them. It bleeds BS, just like this article is.


    GET REAL people!!
    They have the MSM blaming Trump, they blame Trump so who do you think the average person is going to blame? The "Illegals get benefits and shouldn't", the "Wall will reduce Human Trafficking, Drugs and Diseases" will fall on deaf ears and do you think the average person who thinks it is all Trumps fault are going after the Dems if it happens? Look at this years Elections.

    Food stamps (Snap) program is exactly like Social Security....mandatory, not dependent on annual spending bills.

    "The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a mandatory entitlement program that is not dependent on annual spending bills."

    The BS starting this thread is from the typical fear-mongering and/or woo and/or fake news sites acting as echo chambers of each other.
