Food stamp glitch a sign of disaster from inevitable economic collapse

Posted: October 17, 2013 |   Comments

( America's food stamp riots are coming. We've already seen a small sample of the inevitable this past weekend, when a "temporary system failure" caused Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards to stop working in 17 U.S. states. The glitch in the system spurred "mini-riots" at Wal-Marts and other retailers that rely heavily on food stamp users.

At some Wal-Mart stores in Louisiana, EBT cards were not showing any limits on Saturday night, allowing families to essentially "buy" merchandise for free. Word quickly spread, and the stores' shelves were cleared within two hours. Management eventually had to call in local law enforcement, and after the situation was contained, the frenzied shoppers simply left, abandoning overflowing shopping carts. Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd said, "It was worse than any black Friday" that he's ever seen.

This happened less than three hours after the glitch in the system occurred. Imagine what would happen if the EBT system went offline for 24, 48 or 72 hours in every city simultaneously. Rioting and looting would occur at nearly every Wal-Mart across the country, and it wouldn't be confined to just that retailer. All stores would be ransacked, as people who have no concept of private property hoard as much as they can as quickly as they can. Our entire economic system would collapse.

Evidence of the coming collapse is all around us. A growing trend among desperate women is to sell their hair, eggs and breast milk to make ends meet. Law enforcement in many parts of America is becoming more and more militaristic and authoritative. Incidences of police brutality, violations of Constitutional rights and plain abuse are growing disturbingly more common. Take for example this video of a drunken off-duty police officer arresting a female soldier, screaming at her and causing her great pain, all because she refused his sexual advances. Major financial institutions are picking up on the signs too and are starting to prepare for the worst. Chase Bank recently sent letters to its business customers, warning them about new limits on cash withdrawals and restricting them from sending international wire transfers.

Fortunately, the collapse has been delayed by Congress raising the debt ceiling, yet again. Eventually though, we will have to stop paying our debt with more debt, or America's welfare system, now catering to 50 million people, will collapse. A system that entrenches itself in debt, steals from hard workers and encourages others to sit around collecting government benefits has no alternative but to collapse on itself. When it does, those who have been taught to rely on the government for sustenance will contribute to mass looting, rioting and the general collapse of Western civilization. The system is stealing from our children, our grandchildren and our future so that we can live comfortably in the short-term, but we will eventually have to own up to our decisions and pay the price.
