Food stamp opportunists who raided Walmart during EBT glitch to be cut off from program

by Ethan A. Huff, Natural News

The ruthless hordes of food stamp recipients that went wild last month during a major glitch in the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) program could end up getting cut off from the program forever, claim new reports. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal recently announced that everyone who participated in fraud in his state by raiding stores and going on out-of-control shopping sprees will soon receive letters notifying them of either a temporary or permanent loss of benefits.

As you may recall, a number of Walmart stores and other retailers throughout Louisiana were ransacked back in October when the federal EBT database suddenly went offline, registering the equivalent of unlimited balances on people’s cards. Enticed by the prospect of having no spending limits, thousands of EBT cardholders who discovered the glitch early decided to take full advantage of it, ransacking stores and filling up their carts with the most expensive food products they could find.

    I was wondering when the punishment would be handed down after that. Its like an armored car dropping a bag of money and people pick it up and spend the money.

    Nothing is free and everything has a payback…

    The real winner in all of this fiasco is Wal-Mart. The Walton family makes money off the slave like labor from the backs of its employees. Since the raid due to the EBT “glitch”, hourly employees have had their hours cut back drastically to make up for the short-fall, but in reality it gives Wal-Mart Execs. the excuse to cut back employee hours even more and save, and thereby profit, more. If State Governors took action on the issue earlier, Wal-Mart would have had no excuse to shaft their employees once again. I don’t suppose that the money spent out of the EBT fund during that “glitch” will actually reach Wal-Mart in the form of repayment, but if it does, Wal-Mart wins again and will still not pay back their employees. This is why I have boycotted Wal-Mart for years now, and why I encourage others to do the same. Never shop there, they are evil.

      No one has to work at Walmart. If they hate it so much,go somewhere else. I work for Lowes and they have their issues as well. But I CHOOSE to work there.

        If I leave the front door to my house open, do I deserve to have people walk in and steal? Are those that commit the theft guilty of theft and accountable or was it my “fault” for tempting them?

        We need to stop making excuses and force people to be accountable for their actions. If the walmart orcs are guilty of fraud then the walmart orcs are going to have to deal with the consequences. Its not like they were starving, and as for walmart itself, Gerald is right, nobody is forced to work at walmart, at least not yet.

    Although Jindal may appear to be a person enforcing what is right and discouraging what is wrong by this measure in order to fool the public into believing that he is a righteous or good man, he is actually a Rockefeller and Rothschild loyal Rhodes scholar globalist and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations dedicated to the wicked satanic one world government being pursued in every arena today.

    Let’s not be fooled by this evil clown.
