So now EBT Cards are paying for flat screen TV's???  People were wheeling them out of the store in droves and I blame the cashiers as much as anyone for that, anyone with a brain would say - I KNOW EBT doesn't cover that item!

I don't think EBT cards cover that, either, but I do know every fast-food place in the PNW accepts them now. As for Wal-Mart, that was really poor judgement on their part, but I'm still not happy the govt is making them eat this - they'll just jack up the price on everything at the store to cover it.

I'm not going to defend Walmart, however, what if they had said no?

Ain't EBT great?

Let's go back to food stamps.

Better yet, soup lines.

I mean it.

I thought of that too, I think they were afraid that the mob would start rioting.

I think Walmart did what it did to protect their employees. Most of the low life that did this would have rioted like they do when ever they think they can get away with it. These people have no morals

Agreed. It was safer and cheaper in the long haul than repairing stores and employees.

One thing struck me though. The comment "worse than Black Friday." Being a suspicious type who really does not believe in coincidence, I want to know exactly how these crowds magically formed with such speed. Word of mouth is reasonably efficient, but not that efficient.

This EBT "failure" was all a part of a plan, and don't be shocked that Wal-Mart was the target of it.

Barack Obama is a truly evil human being.  I used to not believe much in these things, but the man is at best a sociopath, and was likely abused as a child by Frank Marshall Davis.
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.
