Widespread reports continue to pour in from all over the nation of “glitches” with the food stamp system. It is eight days into the month and large numbers of people still have not received their benefits, and in other instances it is being reported that EBT cards are simply not working correctly. So what in the world is going on here? On downdetector.com there are scores of reports of problems with the EBT system from people all over the nation. Could this simply be another example of government incompetence, or is something else at work here?

Well, most people who care know that ZeroHedge is an America-hating, Kremlin-loving "news source" with precious metal sales connections.

Thousands dropped from food stamps

Hundreds of thousands of people have been dropped from food stamps nationally, including several thousand in metro Atlanta, due to a new rule that they must get a job.

For now, the rule applies to able-bodied, childless adults in Cobb, Gwinnett and Hall counties, but state officials are in discussions to expand it to more counties. Some say the rule has been effective in cracking down on people who should not be receiving the public assistance.

The food stamp aka EBT card program is corrupt but not beyond repair.
