22,329,713 Households On The Verge Of A Riot?

Published

How many U.S. Households are currently on food stamps?

The number may just surprise you…

22,329,713

That is more than 22 million households that are  facing a devastating cut to their benefits.

Regardless of your position on the SNAP program, this news is going to impact much more than the families that are on government assistance

Any prepper or survivalist knows that the first step to any riot is almost always the same…

“If you look across the world, riots always begin typically the same way: when people cannot afford to eat food,” Margarette Purvis, the president and CEO of the

Food Bank for New York City, told Salon Monday. Purvis said that the looming cut would mean about 76 million meals “that will no longer be on the plates of the poorest families” in NYC alone – a figure that outstrips the total number of meals distributed each year by the Food Bank for New York City, the largest food bank in the country. “There will be an immediate impact,” she said.

 This article,written by Tim Fernholz on Quartz.com, lays out the basics of what can be expected from Friday’s food stamp reduction.

Today marks a milestone on the road from recession: The expiration of a 13.6% expansion to US food subsidies for the poor included in the fiscal stimulus bill in 2009. While the need for support hasn’t necessarily reduced (unemployment and hunger are still unusually high) there is little appetite to extend the law, and grocery budgets will shrink.

– $5 billion is being cut in the coming year. The average benefit is $278 a month for the 48 million recipients of food assistance; a household of four will see that cut by $36. According to the independent Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, in 2014, benefits will be less than $1.40 per person per meal. More than 80% of households using the subsidy have incomes below the poverty line.

– Retailers are hit, too. Wal-Mart tells analysts that it garners 18% of food stamp outlays, about $14 billion of the $80 billion spent last year. Assuming the cut hits it evenly, the store could lose $1.9 billion in US revenue. Notably, many of Wal-Mart’s employees are on public assistance, including food stamps. But its executives wonder if their low prices will make consumers with a shrinking budget more likely to patronize them over its competitors. Still, Wal-Mart and Target have already lowered their sales forecasts for the all-important holiday season; grocery-chain Kroger is considering price cuts.

– Which could add to weak growth in the fourth quarter. We’re already expecting a slowdown thanks to the government shutdown, and a cut in food stamps—which economists say support an unusually high amount of economic activity for government spending—could add to the burden.

– It’s not the end of the food stamp debate. Conservative lawmakers are still proposing massive cuts to the program, and a compromise on how to treat the program will likely be part of any deal to avoid another US government shut-down in January.

The combination of these factors paint a grim picture for the country, and leave a very real possibility of a riot in the coming weeks.

My Buddy Nick Gillick recently wrote an article on his blog Prepcabin.com and gives some good tips, should a riot or civil unrest happen:

I’m not saying that you should go clear the grocery stores in case there are riots but if you live in a dense urban population you might want to quietly sneak out and grab some extra supplies.

Here are some action items you can take to help ensure your safety against social unrest:

Check the security of your home. Are your windows secured and locking? What about your doors? Do you have a way to secure them if they are compromised? Some large screws and heavy duty plywood can be quickly installed on the inside of your window and door casings in the event they are compromised.

Do you have a minimum of 3 days supplies such as food and water safely hidden in your home? I highly recommend weeks if not months worth of supplies be hidden in your home at all times. Also consider if your personal health supplies are substantial enough to last long enough to get more or to get help.

Do you have a security plan? Are you willing and able to protect yourself and your family? Keep your protective and self-defense tools maintained and ready. Also have them easily accessible for yourself but hidden out of sight.

Do you have a plan to escape if need be? Knowing where to go and how to get there if you can’t stay in your home is vital. Don’t rely on emergency management.

Do you have the proper communication devices to warn you of possible dangerous situations. An emergency radio and FM radio could warn you of approaching or developing riots. If you have a group close by consider radios to communicate between groups. You may need them or they may need you!

These are just some basics to help you determine if you’re ready to survive possible riots breaking out in your area. Take a few minutes and analyze your preparedness and make a plan.

Remember one of the best ways to stay safe is to stay hidden away, keeping a low profile until everything calms down. There may be no riots at all – it’s really hard to predict. But also remember people loose control quickly when they feel they’ve been wronged and think a vital life source taken away from them.

Stay safe and stay tuned to the news in the next few days if you think you’re in a high-risk area for possible riots.

    No wonder the country is in such sad state of affairs. This amount of people supported by the few left working is total BS. Those on snap should be mortified that they are sucking the taxpayers dry. But they don’t care & will continue down that road until they are forced to go get a job. You should see all the welfare people line up at the fast food joints the day they get paid. It’s shmefull.

        Murphy gas sold at Wall Mart accepts EBT cards for payment. Them there suckers need fuel for their vehicles so they can go get their chocolate covered coca puffs, sodas, ground beef for their dogs, and whatever else they want, at the taxpayer’s expense.

          I was a nurse for 25yrs., injured at work, treated like public enemy #1 due to work injury, I am eligible for $15.00/mo. EBT, and an institution I paid into for 25yrs. barely pays enough for anything, I buy my dog dry food, there’s no money for hamburger, I don’t know what chocolate covered cocoa puffs are, I’ll eat them if you tell me where to get them. Faith In God gets me thru.

            Michele I feel ya. I was in the miiltary for 9 years and my husband was for 8 years. We recently had to apply for SNAP becasue we had no other choice. I got out of the military to start my family and I also earned my Bachelor degree recently. My husband has been going to school and working full time since he got out of the military. However, his last contract never got renewed and hasn’t been able to find work in 2 years. I have also been looking for work and have had no luck. I think this system is good for those like us, where there is a true need, but there should be limitations on it. You can’t just keep getting the benefits forever, that’s just wrong!

      Do you have a job available. Because I’ve been applying to a wide variety of places. Everyone says they are hiring, they are just not hiring me! Yes, I would like a job. But…I don’t see that happening. So…instead of getting a job, I get government assistance.
      If you have a problem, maybe you should look into why companies are not hiring.

      There are NO jobs, this is the problem people. 90 million are out of work! Look, I do not support this free stuff attitude but I feel it is sadly blown out of proportion. If there is no work, no income people must eat to survive, this is not a crime as you all make it out to be. Many many on EBT have NO other choice to get food for their families. Stop being such idiots hating your fellow man. People need help, where is your compassion for this? Get a job, do you have one of those? WHY in the world do you think foreclosures have NOT gone away? Same reason people need EBT to eat. NO one can pay, the economy sucks, remember all that or are you too busy sucking up the brainwashing signals?????? This NO income is NOT a choice for most of these people. Wake the heck up, you all red this because you know there are issues, so take that mindset one step further and THINK before you open your mouth and hit send.

        We have been hiring at International Paper for years. Its a good paying union job. We cant get people in there. There was one individual who asked to not be hired after his probation period because he wanted to keep collecting unemployment; scum. Im not saying all are this lazy, but if people really wanted jobs they would get them. The gov’t makes it to easy. Someone got fired for attendance and they got a job 3 weeks later making $12 dollars an hour. He would of made more on his unemployment but didn’t go that route. This is relative to Wisconsin and that is my only frame of reference, however, I think if you needed a job to survive you would find a way. It might be kind of extreme but survival of the fittest has been a part of evolution since life started. If that was implied it would take care of our economy and de-evolution.
        On another note 95% of merch at wall-mart comes from China. All food stamps do is strengthen the Chinese economy.

I wish that bustin my butt 6 days at work was enough to take care of my family but it isn’t.

    The non renewal of the SNAP funds that had been bumped up temporarily that has expired amounts to about a reduction of 5% per month. And perhaps another 5% may be reduced again later. Although emotional and misrepresented in the media….it’s no greater than the 10% sequester cuts that have been going on since March. More cuts and removal of subsidy programs are needed if the US deficit is ever going to get in line with revenue. As for debt….that’s a different story that’s much worse. So for now, instead of driving off the cliff…we’ll just drive parallel to it and look over the edge for awhile.

    I don’t mind providing food to the truly needy, but too many of these cases are the result of wasteful lifestyles. I see women using EBT credit cards who have expensive nail treatments and expensive hair styling, driving new cars and in many cases expensive new cars like a Chevy Tahoe or some other large gas guzzling SUV. In California, you can tell the year of registration by the license number, so it is not hard to tell the age of the vehicle the EBT card holder is driving away from the grocery store or Subway. I didn’t know until I read one of the posts to this list that pizza places were SNAP approved. If the store isn’t approved by the government, the SNAP funds can’t be redeemed, so if the local pizza place is accepting EBT cards, that means the dedicated budget savers in Washington approved that particular pizza place for accepting EBT cards.

    I used to support Toys for Tots until they started demanding a new toy and then it had to be a new toy worth more than $10.00. I wonder when they will move to a new toy worth more than $25.00?

      I worked for a large company that acceped the SNAP card and I’ve seen so much fraud in this program. They say the average monthly benefit is
      $278 per month,but I have seen cards with 1300.00 on them.(When you use
      the card a balance shows on the receipt) This was a guy driving a
      company truck. They do not issue a company truck to a 10.00 a hr employee. I had one lady, hair and nails done at the salon, best clothes money can buy, driving a NEW BMW with 1000.00 on her card.
      And these people are buying fountain drinks, candy, and chips. These are not nessary items if you really need to feed your family.
      If the gov’t deleted all this junk from the cards they could cut them
      by half. They should be for the older folks and the truly disabled.
      PS Did you know the can get cash off those cards? Then they can buy
      their beer and lottery tickets.

        Former Neighbors in a Rental home , paid by Section 8 had 6 Kids and the lady said that she got 136 Dollar per Person- including the boyfriend that is now over 1000 Dollars a month. This with other benefits like TANF and earned income tax, Medicaid, Childcare, free school breakfast and lunches.

        They both where just 30 years old and had never worked a day in their live, except on making babies and selling prescription drugs and heroin.

        She offered to go shopping with shopping lists for us and then we should just give her the money- 60 cents on the Dollar.
        The couple went to weekend gambling in the casino, they drove a better car, then we could afford.
        Btw: I have heard in our State, a leased car don’t count as property against, what you are entitled to get on EBT Money.
        This would also explain people coming out of the food pantry and getting in to a new truck.

        They used their EBT Money for everything else then food. They always had enough food due to touring all surrounding food pantries.
        Two of their children got disability payments. They are now in Jail and the children in foster care due to their careless drug selling and stealing with their children in retail shops. They also used their children as drug carriers.

        If I would not have experienced this personally, because I tried to help this neglected and abused children, I would not have believed it.

        There was a congressional Accounting of the benefits of the average wealth fair family in the US , witch was estimated at around 42.000 Dollars a year for a family of four.
        This is more as the average income before taxes in my county.

        For a single person a retiree, a disabled person, a person who works a part time job, 136 Dollars in Foods stamps is not much, but for families where children get the same as a grown up, this accounts to a lot of money.

        The biggest welfare recipients paid by the American tax payer are cooperation’s like Wally mart and the fast food industry .

        The St. Louis Dispatch writes: “Thhat the fast food industry receives subsidy to the tune of 7 Billion Dollar a year for their low wage workers for Medicaid, food stamps and other public assistance programs.

        Another study “Super-Sizing Public Costs” by the National Employment Law Project said low wages and missing benefits at the 10 largest fast food companies cost the taxpayer 3.8 Billion Dollars a year.

        Another way to look at it: Mc Donalds posted a 1.5 billion in third quarter profits. The taxpayer paid 1.2 billion last year for public assistance to the Mc Donald worker force. That’s 300 Million per Quarter a 20 Percent contribution to the company’s bottom line.
        This can be called corporate welfare or socialism, but not capitalism. Fast food workers should be paid a living wage. The corporations that hire them, must stop relying on the public for anything more than buying the occasional burger.”

    I told a friend of mine this morning that we’ll (the haves) in the United States will have to support the have nots one way or the other. I think it’ll either be through government taxpayer handouts or some if not most of the desperate people will be robbing and burglarizing the rest of us. And I think you’d have to live in a fortress and have an army of soldiers, bombs, drones and tanks to escape the wrath and desperation of those who have nothing to lose.

    I think we all know that there are some who are poor by choice and there are others who are poverty-stricken due to circumstances beyond their control. Just hope I don’t have to live through a civil war here. I usually don’t concern myself with the “terrorists” in other parts of the world. I’m concerned about the enemy within.

    Even though I am preparing for riots of any kind, be it food riots or race wars, this food cut thing is not a cut but a rollback to the original amount of money spent on food stamps before the stimulus added to it. It should be like getting extra money for a month and you eat lobster and steak, then the next month back on a regular income eat hamburger and noodles.
    I have also read that these cards are being sold on Craigslist or other places. Obviously someone/homes have scammed the system and are selling the surplus.
    But for this site, be prepared and don’t let too many know what you have or don’t have.

    In the face of these Food Stamp reductions to the 51,000,000 people on Food Stamps – just remember the monies recently quietly sent to Pakistan ($1.8 Billion US Dollars) and to Egypt (2.2 Billion US Dollars); $4 Billion USDollars could of purchased a lot of food. The $2.8 Billion USDollars sent to the terrorist in Syria would have purchased even more food. Does anyone ever ask why foreign citizens are more worthy than American citizens? One might also ask how did this happen to America – thanks to blow-job Billy in 2000 with his pushing for the acceptance of China into the World Trade Organization (WTO) America has lost 57,700 manufacturing industries who either closed by going out of business, closed their doors, or moved their manufacturing to China. Today, 25,000,0000 Americans are out of work. By 2015 another 15,500 American business will closed and another 17 millions more Americans will lose their jobs – remember this when you purchase that Christmas present this year manufactured in China. Yesterday some other American lost his job – by purchasing from China – tomorrow you job could be lost.

      It’s far easier to blame America’s woes on folks who have lost their jobs through outsourcing and now need assistance than it is to look at the REAL source: Lopsided treaties that pit working Americans against 2-cent a day 3rd world labor. H1B visas have pretty ruined the IT industry in America, and are doing so to the Engineering and Nursing fields. Yet those squawking the loudest about people on SNAP refuse to even address this issue.

      I resent career wellfare recipients as much as any poster here on this forum, but if you look at the state-by-state breakdown of SNAP users, you’ll see that it has nearly doubled since 2008. I hardly think “career” users account for this huge increase – which happens to coincide with the worst economy since the 30’s depression.

    My 97-year old grandmother uses an EBT card (she lives on SS alone). The cut to her benefits is $10/month. We’ll find a way to cut $2.50 off her weekly shopping bill (coupons, anyone?), or sneak $10 into her shopping cash without her knowing (she refuses to take money from the kids and grandkids). No-one in the family thought “Oh my god, they’re taking food out of Grandmom’s mouth – let’s riot!” That’s ridiculous.

    I do not know how it is in other states but here in CA. they serve poor kids both Breakfast and lunch at NO cost. This program was not in place when 2009 increases where put in place, so now, they took away some money when the kids get 10 meals a week free. If we were not feeding so many illegals, then true Americans could get benefits.
    As far as for seniors (I am one) the program was put in place to supplement an income, not as a income. If a person goes their entire life and does not save a dime, they better look in the mirror.
    A while back in order to come to America you had to have a sponsor, that gave you work and medical, then the democrats got involved and let in huge number from every country in the world without a sponsor just line up for the free stuff. You use to have so many points to qualify for SS, and again the dems changed that. I have witnessed two friends, one from India and one from Russia and they were charging 10K per person to come to America, with all the papers, free housing and free SS, and they smile all the way to bank. America is GOOD!!!!

    This whole thing is being blown way out of proportion. Let’s do a little math here. A family of four will lose, on average, $36 per month. That is $18 per person. That is $4.65 per week. Basically the price of a happy meal. There is no person on SNAP that is going to drop over dead from starvation by not being able to purchase the lost $4.65 per week on food. There are those that will plead the pity on the poor and they will die if we cut their benefits, but this is just not possible. Not to mention that the majority of people receiving SNAP benefits in our country are also receiving benefits from other programs as well. So a family MAY be collecting SNAP (where we pay for their lunch) and WIC (where we pay for their lunch again) and school lunch program (where we pay yet again for a lunch) and all of this money comes out of the same pot called USDA-FNS. So we are basically paying for three (or more) lunches – and we wonder why their is an obesity problem and why we are broke. I can’t blame the recipients of these food benefit programs because we are just creatures of habit – give it to us free and we really don’t care but we want more. It is time to model the SNAP program after the WIC program where they are only allowed certain foods and they cannot stay on the program forever. Do some research (I know – that “W” word called work) on the two programs – then write your elected leaders to cut the fat in the SNAP program.

    Let them all die

      49% of snap recipients are children, they did not ask for the life they have been given. Out of the 51% of adult snap recipients, 60% work and have no money left after bills and rent to purchase enough food for the month. But let them die. Hopefully you never find yourself in a situation where compassion is needed on your behalf. I agree there is a problem that needs to be fixed, but starving people is no answer. The abusers should be ineligible for future help. Perhaps some classes in food purchasing and preparation should be given before they are able to get benefits, their should be limits on what can be purchased and perhaps they should be made to take classes teaching them to grow their own food so that eventually we can have drastic cutbacks to this program because many people will become more aware and self sufficient. Sadly this will not happen because, I believe, the government wants everyone depending on these programs so they can screw us all in the end…. Perhaps the first step is to take our country and our government back. Place term limits on any government position, forget career politicians, they are seeming to get too greedy and forget why they are there after a while. Impeach the one calling himself the president. How about some cutbacks and earning limits on the politicians too, let them live as their constituents do…. I would vote for that. They get paid to line their pockets from the lobbyists passing bills and laws we don’t want, ignoring us the entire time. The only way to clean up our nation is to take back control of our government, because it works for us- not the other way around! Many people don’t believe in God, but I do, and I feel we have fallen from his grace. Only when we turn back to him can we begin to see a brighter future. Glory to God in the highest…. Blessings and goodwill to you all!!!!

    Money for Medicaid comes mostly from Medicare which Senior Citizens pay into every month. Most Senior Citizens make less then $800 a month and are not eligible for Food Stamps or housing. Those on SNAP receive more from the government then our Senior citizens. Our Country at one time did take care for the elderly but the last 2 & a half generations they put them in a nursing home as quickly as they can. Do they receive good care..Visit one. Most of them would love to continue working but no one will hire them. As for quite a few that have been on SNAP all your life, Thank those who are working now and your senior citizens. Just say Thank You to the American people….GOD BLESS AMERICA at one time did take care for the elderly but the last 2 & a half generations they put them in a nursing home as quickly as they can. Do they receive good care..Visit one. Most of them would love to continue working but

    This would not be an issue if they would stop sending BILLIONS to countries who don’t really need and and those who don’t even like us not to mention repeal the free trade agreements and force our industries to come back here! Plenty of jobs and plenty of money to feed the needy. They have this country in a strangle hold and are about to snap the neck.

    This is pathetic when so many Adults will not take responsibility and feed their families. It is not the responsibility of anyone to feed someone else, it is the responsibility of the person to feed their own families and I do not appreciate working my ass off to pay taxes to feed the subjects of OBAMA and the mess he has created. I say strongly Cut ALL WELFARE I am tired to supporting freeloaders of the Socialist Communist Subjects of the Socialist communist Democratic Government of this Country.

    Why do we spend so much time, energy and emotion blaming those in need for wanting to stay alive? Yet almost no time is spent on the corporate fat cats who eat at the public expense, caviar and champagne. We belittle the snap recipient while praising CEOs for their theft of the American public through deviant consumer practices, shady real estate deals and blatant fraud. We need to wise up and see the trillions given in corporate welfare is what bringing this country down. The wealthy do well regardless of the economy. In bad times they can buy more because prices drop. They can manufacture more and make bigger profits because they get more work for less money out of us, the working class. And even though consumerism slows down they simply put their money into the destructive things that always flourish in bad times, alcohol, tobacco and yes firearms. Desperate people with no hope either turn to self medication or crime. No jobs means no hope. What would you have them do?
