I'm guessing not much made it the lobsters rather it made the cooks feel better to throw them in the boiling water.

Food Stamps Running Out

The government shutdown hits Day 31 today.

CNN reports that the US federal courts will run out of operating cash this Friday, and the last food stamps payments to cover February’s outlays happened over the last weekend.

If you live in an area that may be prone to riots, I suggest buying a few extra cans of beanie-weenies, etc.

Money to supplement their rent is already gone, so contracted housing landlords are being encouraged to use reserve funds until they can be reimbursed by a new budget. Realistically, how many will do that, or can do that?

All of the "projects" here are city owned, with Federal funding, so I assume for now they are on the city's dime. I love it.

Besides food stamps, there are the SNAP debit cards ('free' money) they can use to buy practically anything. Two separate programs with different requirements, I think.

No rent, no free money, no food stamps, maybe no free bus. Some social agencies hand out bus passes, so I assume those could dry up for a while.

My job, transit bus, gets about half of it's operating money from the Feds, plus Federal grants for various equipment, etc.; but I haven't heard a thing about us being affected.

Good to know thx for the info. I don't live near any known "riot zones," but who knows how desperate the average citizen on the dole could get? People in general don't like their apple carts upset, and anger would be the logical reaction. I bet drivers would more likely to bring on the road rage too.

Its pretty bad to think the collapse of a welfare sytem could bring our nation down to the level of a third world country.

I always assume the worst case possible & prepare the best I can.

I'm all stocked up on various life's necessities, and will avoid as many clumps of humans as I can.

The EBT cards are still working. Had a woman in front of me at he grocery store Friday that wound up using it plus another card plus cash. Took her about 10 minutes to check out as I patiently waited with the bananas I was buying. I thought EBT's were state issued probably with federal reimbursement. I don't wish any ill will to those that are needy but certainly some on the program may actually get a job or head back to Mexico.

Things will tighten and aggression will escalate if this continues. If you carry, it would be best to keep a sharp eye out and a hand close to your Roscoe.
I repeatedly tell my wife to look around before taking her first step when shopping.

If you have a handgun you have a burner, hardware, heater, gat, piece, rod, and Roscoe.

You're confusing it with Johnson, which you don't have......

The next Presidential election is just around the corner, and If you thought the last election was ugly, you had better get real about 2020.

I believe that what went on in 2016 may be considered mild and we need to be stocked up & prepared with supplies. In the mean time, we have a grace period to acquire items without dumping a ton of money at once.

I suppose it is possible for them to act even more childish next time?

I know number one on your supply list is blue frosting. Then you get to the more trivial stuff like food, water, and ammo......

My little slice of heaven is 65 miles from Seattle by road and 30 from Tacoma but, I'm just 30 miles south of Keyport which I'm told is the largest supply of nuclear arms stored for the Navy, a definite war time target!
UPDATE: Russia recently posted a map of US targets that listed a Navy radio station just north of Everett WA. and two non existent military bases so I guess I'm safe!

Yesterday a friend (well, I consider him a friend although he probably considers me a joke) posed an article to back up AOC's green plan and how we need to all move to smaller rural houses and plant gardens to provide food, compost human waste for fertilizer and so on. All based on the Global Warming Data from the latest European meetings. Basically literally everything is going to kill us in the next few years if we don't do "something" NOW!

I had a few questions, How do we move everyone to rural areas when the jobs are in the city? No fuel for vehicles, Dams are bad, fossil fuels are bad, nuclear is bad. Cloths? Cotton is bad and most are petroleum based? Animals are bad, flatulence. Just on and on, my god, what is wrong with people? Got to stop and take my stress meds!

About smokeless ammo in a fire, it's no big deal since it's not chambered and there's no barrel. Heat will pop the bullet out of the case a couple of feet maybe, and exposed powder will burn, like a wood kitchen match. A lot of popping, hissing, and smoke. Not like the exploding ammo dumps in war movies.

You can find the info online, but I got mine straight. My dad retired after 34 years on the city fire department.

Black powder is another story. Explodes more than burns. Regulations vary, but most areas prohibit storing it in a dwelling, and often require it to be a set distance from a dwelling.

I've got around 300 pounds of ammo in a metal cabinet in my den......
