Russia: What is EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer)

Better get one soon…

I was sipping that cup of wonderful coffee and something came to my mind. What if tomorrow all EBT cards in America stopped working and never worked again. Otherwise no food-stamps, means no food in the mouth…

How long before 50,000,000 people went into the streets like Zombies and looked for food. That is a hell of a lot of people on food-stamps in America and it does not take long for those people to get hungry. They are use to a rich diet of goodies, I know I have seen the EBT in use first hand. That EBT card does more than get food, it gets drugs, cash, alcohol and many other tasty treats…

Then I thought: “What if they stopped EBT in Russia?” Oh yes! There is no such thing and no one relies upon it, or anything like it. The people work together and they help others who are starving. No handouts from the government to feed the people and to be honest, “I do not see very many people starving in the Russia that I see everyday!”

I realize that the system of support for the people by the government in Russia is totally different than in America, actually much of the west is included in that statement. I also realize that a huge difference in the debt of the countries is within these boundaries. America has so many welfare programs and so much free money being shifted from the middle class to the poor, that even if the government stopped wasting money on wars and such, the country would still be broke. Welfare is killing America, along with a dozen other things…

So in Russia about five years ago, I asked Sveta, “Where does someone go and get help for food? You know when you are starving?”

Sveta looked at me like I was speaking Greek and then said, “The neighbors or family!”

That gave me some things to think about and over the years I have watched how the Russian system or I should say, the Russian human network, works to help people who are hungry and cold. It is vastly different than the system now in place in America and it is exactly like the system that I grew up with in America. People help each other and do not rely upon the government for help… (The government in Russia steps in if it is a huge disaster and helps, but for the little stuff, you are on your own!)

So food-stamps is not the only thing wrong in America and the truth is that 100,000,000+ people are on the lamb in America. But stop the hand outs and stop the debt and then the Zombies will come out into the streets and eat the rest of the middle class America…

They have been trained to do that, like Pavlov’s Dog’s…

Russia does not have this Zombie issue… (Yet!)
