I'm a public assistance worker for a state agency. I thought my NWO peeps might appreciate knowing about the following:
1) In most states in the US, Public Assistance (Food Stamps, TANF aka welfare) benefits are issued to people via EBT (electronic benefit) card, much
like a credit/debit card. No electricity=no access to benefits, so the truly needy end up at the mercy of the government...we witnessed this
firsthand during Katrina and Rita...
There is no way to ensure that people don't sell their "benefit" cards for cash, so the potential for fraud is pretty huge. I wouldn't be
surprised if within the next five years or so, EBT cards get phased out in favor of fingerprint scanners...sounds kinda far-fetched, doesn't it?
Well, this'll blow your mind:
2) Another form of public assistance that we provide is in the form of benefits for parents who need help paying for childcare (the state pays most of
the cost to the daycare center, the parent pays the remainder). Currently, childcare providers are required to have parents sign in/out on logsheets
when dropping off/picking up kids. There is widespread fraud (daycare centers forge signatures & get paid for days when kids aren't actually being
cared for at the center), so my state is considering implementation of one of the following procedures within the next five years:
a) Issue "ID" cards for each child that parents will "swipe" when dropping off/picking up
b) Fingerprinting every child & parent receiving childcare assistance, and having fingerprint scanners at every daycare center...parent/child scanned
at dropoff/pickup to prove that they were actually there.
Sounds very creepy and "NWOish" to me....I'd like to know what others think about this.
