I got next months food stamps a few days ago. I'm not touching the extra amount until my date in February that I normally get them. I don't plan on going out and buying prime rib and lobster. I'm gonna keep eating the same ol same ol.

I have been working my entire life. Since the age of 13 in fact.
I have never bought prime rib and lobster.....
Lol

I don't know what will happen if people began actually starving, but I'm sure it won't be pretty. No person is more dangerous that someone with nothing to lose. And if you are literally about to die (for no good reason)...

45 million people right, you guys totally under estimate the economy right now we are headed into really dark territory




We had better build a wall to keep those undesirables out, or in, or at least just away...




The vast majority of US citizens already have that.

We call them homes.






If people get desperate enough those homes will not be safe they will be targets.


Not for the homes that believe in gun rights. It will be target practice.


DeJohn and Lebron in the Ghetto also have guns.

Those starving rioters will be armed too.

Better build that wall for when food stamps program and social security runs out and/or economic collapse happens and srhtf...martial law and riots galore occur.

Last thing Latin America needs is a flood of Gringo migrants looking for a cheap meal ticket.

And they will be going for the easiest ones.

You really haven't thought that through, if targets get picked off the crowd will resort to just burning the house down and stringing any occupants not killed by the fire from the lampposts.




If they get close enough. I don't live in the city.

yea, stock up on some food now, before the stores are looted and trucks cannot get to stores because of hijacking pirates.


Prep, don't forget.

If there is looting there will be no food and thats when the FEMA camps open.

There will be no food trucks in an area deemed unsafe.

Cities will begin to be barricaded and the national guard will take over guarding checkpoints.

In case of emergency the military will declare martial law and take over the cities.

Everyone will be rounded up and put to work in FEMA camps.

Those who resist will experience Darwinism.

Without food people will have no choice but to turn themselves in.

Martial Law takes care of the gun laws and FEMA puts everyone to work to try and preserve the rule of law and order.

If the food goes buckle up it wont be pretty!

"Every society is only three meals away from revolution."

When the parents working two or three jobs a piece can't feed their family for the third time in a row, that's when things start falling apart.

yup, will be mandatory turn in your guns, like at KAtrina, door to door...will be lot of civil unrest, if the government turns on it people and has to use lethal force against resisters....can see the UN setting up shop and helping since might be an issue with US military being used against it's own people and might be some turncoats helping the resistance and arming with ied's ...will be bloody...

They will wait until the wall is built is my guess, at least in strategic points!

The most likely outcome if the shutdown lasts that long? The most effected demographic would be the uneducated, right wingers, (otherwise known as the trump base). So I’m unsure who they would riot against. Is the wall worth starving for? If so, then by all means, let natural selection run its course.

Incase you don’t know who uses food stamps.

I don’t see that wall stopping anything. Looks more like a retaining wall to me.

I realize acknowledging facts isn’t our rightwingers strong suit. However, I will still present them to you.

Do food stamps enable the recipient to buy much food? Maybe they'll be too weak to riot.


you're a moron....
