Awesome, EBT down.

I'm seeing on another site that the free shit foodstamps are not working across the country.



I hope it lasts a long time.

Walmart made a mistake, and corrected the mistake by absorbing the cost. I'm not sure why you're patting them on the back like it's some sort of moral redemption. Walmart probably fired multiple people over it, and implemented changes to prevent it from ever happening again.

They didn't make a mistake. They KNEW that the EBT wasn't going through. They KNEW that the software was down. They KNEW the government didn't have their back. But they also knew some people had honest legitimate needs for food, and decided to continue to ring up the purchases.

Your post is WILLFUL ignorance. The article itself says the opposite of what you propose, yet your hatershades refuse to see it.

You think WalMart intentionally gave away mountains of food/product? One of the most aggressive bottom line corporations in history?

That would be surprising, to say the least.

They probably didn't want their store burnt to the ground.

I suppose the publicity of doing right when the government bungled it would be worth nothing? Certainly not more than a few cartfuls of pork and beans and grape drank?

Or that. A riot would be expensive. Not hard to imagine a riot would have followed, or just plain theft.

I'm leaning this way. Self-preservaton seems more likely than WalMart become crazy generous.

Even with carts overflowing with EBT eligible stuff being just given away for a few hours, WalMart corporate wouldnt miss that money, it would be pennies to them.

Sure they would. We are talking about Walmart.

If this store was at sea, they'd probably have already made the store manager walk the plank.

If liberals wonder why they're not more popular. Look here.

Oh, sure. WalMart continued to honor EBT cards, even though there was a glitch that would keep them from getting paid. But it's probably because;

they're so rich they wouldn't miss the loss anyway
they are looking for a PR get
they wouldn't want them poor angelic patrons to burn their evil house house down.

It's the little things like this that turns people's stomach when they hear you blather.

Surprising is putting it mildly. Anybody thinking that Walmart did this out of the goodness of their corporate hearts is seriously bullshitting themselves. Walmart doesn't give one single **** about the welfare of their consumers. That's not corporate hatred, that's just simple corporate business fact.

The corporations, by definition are heartless. They exist to expand/make money nothing more. Corpse = dead body, so corporate zombie apocalypse?
