    This thread is like the proverbial **** that attracts flies. Amazing how many conservatives hit this thing within minutes of it going up to hammer the "takers".

    Just like the unscrupulous people waiting to pounce on a glitch which lets them take advantage of the system, you all live for these kinds of opportunities. Don't you?

    There's a such a thing as self responsibility. Something none of those people can comprehend.

    They knew they were doing wrong, but they didn't gove a ****.

    They should have their benefits witheld for the next few months.

    Re: Food stamp glitch leads to Wal-Mart stampede

    From what little info I have, it seems the wal-mart manager onsite didn't know about the generally accepted procedures for such a situation, so they called corporate. Corporate apparently either didn't know about the same procedures (and didn't ask anyone who might) or didn't care, and just told them to let people buy whatever.

    The people buying the stuff should have been a bit more reasonable about it, but that particular wal-mart should have known better as well.


    Overall it seems like a ****up on the part of everyone, not least Xerox, or rather their child company ACS Inc.

    Why should the recipients get off scott free? The govt. should pay Wally World and take it off their next months' benefits until it's paid off.

    Its a thread topic. Commenting on it is what you are supposed to do. Or...maybe whine bitch and cry because conservative posters actually dare to point out just how ****ed up and corrupt some people can be.

    Whats just a little more funny than watching the herd of handout clowns stealing shopping baskets full of food is the people that rush into here and a-defend them and b-blame it on Walmart.

    Well look at it from Walmart's perspective......you deny allowing someone on welfare buying food=bad PR.
    The people who are solely responsible for this are those who bought beyond what they knew their benefits were. There are occasionally banking glitches where a number is off and someone ends up with way more money than they were supposed to, that doesn't mean they get to go on a shopping spree.

    Also, Wal-Mart for giving the nod of approval to this. Corporations are people, right? This means we can put them in jail?

    No, this isn't the first time problems have occurred with EBT systems. You put up a sign, say sorry for the inconvenience, and nobody gives a crap. The affected people will complain, yes. But they'll come back tomorrow when the system is fixed.
