    Again, you need to research the topic: It lasted from 7-9

    <<<Lynd explained the cards weren't showing limits and they called corporate Walmart, whose spokesman said to let the people use the cards anyway. From 7 to 9 p.m.>>>

    Walmart shelves in Springhill, Mansfield, cleared in EBT glitch - KSLA News 12 Shreveport, Louisiana News Weather & Sports

    Even if it lasted an entire day, so what? People do not starve to death in one day of not being able to shop

    You can laugh all you want but your case is weak.
    It's clear you don't even know the details of what you are talking about

    You are speculating while accusing retailers of a crime
    Know, I simply know the facts of the case and pointing out the obvious

    when the real crime is right in front of you.
    Both groups engaged in similar behavior

    Anyway, I'm done with you, you keep repackaging the same BS and not even entertaining the counter.
    besides pointing out you don't even know what you are talking about ...

    They didn't leave their front door open. They sold these items in a very managed setting expecting a third party to cover the costs

    That isn't robbery, that is facilitation

    Many stores simply didn't accept EBT or put limits on it, even other walmarts: read the news and inform yourself

    Enough people will buy that if it's put out as an explanation to hurt Mr Jindal.

    Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches when you are dependent on other folks for something, be it food stamps or anything else
    .



    People who are drawing Social Security benefits are not dependent on other people.

    They are collecting benefits that they and their employers paid for.

    Yes they are dependent on other people. SS recipients receive back more than they paid in and the SS system is now running on permanent deficits.

    Some people collect social security that never paid into it.

    That is not true

    Some SS recipients receive more then they paid into it, many do not. People who die before collecting, or die just after a few years of collecting do not get more then they paid in.

    Considering the life expectancy in the US in relation to the retirement age, I would say you have your "some''s and your "many"'s backwards.

    In comparison to your blanket statement which indicated all, mine was far more accurate
