    We joke about this, riots and such. But this weekend we got a glimpse when the EBT system went haywire.

    Some folks had unlimited spending:

    But when order was restored and the cards began reading properly, it became clear that some customers were out to take advantage of the taxpayer-funded program. One woman had $700 worth of merchandise in her cart and an EBT card with a balance of just 49 cents.


    Others had none:

    At a Mississippi Walmart, c[COLOR=</a]ustomers rioted and even left the store with groceries without paying after they were unable to use their food stamp cards on Saturday, according to the Clarion-Ledger[​IMG]. A mini riot happened at the Walmart in Philadelphia, Miss. Shortly thereafter, managers decided to temporarily close the store.[/COLOR]

    Agree. They have the give me mentality. Expect things just given to them. Things will get bad when the govt runs out of money.

    The definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over again and expecting different results.
