    So It Begins: Stage One Of Zombie Apocalypse: EBT Food Stamp Card System Goes Dark

    I can see the government shutdown, traitorous denial about the national debt, people getting tired of carrying moochers and finally computer "glitches" shutting down EBT Food Stamp cards may finally release and unprecedented zombie apocalypse to the delight of 2nd amendment supporters everywhere.

    "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 be 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): food stamp 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 Food stamps, 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."

    "Reports from around the country began pouring in around 9 a.m. on Saturday that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores.he glitch, however, did not appear to be part of the government shutdown. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade.The representative said the glitch is affecting people nationwide. I hope that helps.
