Shutdown over: What next?
Food stamps/EBT cut in california
The lack of resolution by our government has reached new levels today. As I was shopping this morning, I watched while several people were told their benifits from the state of California have been shutdown until further notice. I watched a young woman with three kids breakdown and cry in the middle of the store because her foodstamps are the only way she can feed her children. So, while Washsington continues to get paychecks while they haggle this out , new hostages have now been taken, the poor and their children will not get food. Who is going to put a stop to this, innocent people are being held hostage by our own governments inability to do their jobs. Hostage takers would by arrested or shot in any other circumstance, but the people running our country who dictate the upcoming days of our lives continue to threatin the American people they are supposed to serve. So, by the people for the people should now be: East side or West side , red or blue , do for me or I wont do for you. This is nothing more than a gang war and the American people are right in the middle of it. When you back living creatures into a corner , some will cower and others will strike. When survival and children become threatend , people will do anything or take anything to ensure their own survival. There is a war coming, not in the Middle East or Korea but in our own streets right here in the U.S.A.
