Food riots?

One week ago an event billed as a "system failure” caused "EBT" cards--the the euphemistically-named cards that deliver welfare payments and food stamps--to stop working in 17 U.S. states. Within hours, people on welfare were rioting at Wal-Marts.

Eight hours or so later the system was back up and the rioters went home.

Now here's your assignment:  If the EBT system was down for, say, two weeks, how may people would be killed by rioting welfare recipients?

Mike Adams has been considering this.  He observes that most people on welfare have no financial or food reserves to speak of, but live from welfare check to welfare check. Thus if the government cash stops, they get mad and riot.

Before the latest dustup the speculation was that riots wouldn't start for a few days.  In realty they started within 3 hours.

Adams says about 50 million people have EBT cards.
Fifty million.  Consider that for a moment.  Most members of this group cannot conceive of the idea of government “running out of money” because they do not understand where money comes from.  Thus they see no reason to prepare for such an event.  (Almost no one else does either.)  To the extent they plan at all, their plan is to vote for Democrats, because they know Democrats will give them more handouts.
And they will always win the popular vote, because any politician even suspected of wishing to cut welfare--excuse me: "entitlement" programs--will be accused of being “mean” or of racism.  So government handouts will only ratchet higher and higher, luring and more people, until the entire system is unsustainable and collapses under its own weight.
When the welfare system inevitably fails, those who depend on it will be rioting in mere hours.
To make a bad situation worse, many of those on the bottom of the social pyramid believe there's nothing wrong with stealing food.  In fact, they believe they are "entitled" to anything WalMart or you has.  They're raised and trained by the Democrats to believe this.  After all, all Democrat pols--and most Repubs--call welfare payments "entitlements," right? 

If you think I'm being hyperbolic about low-info Americans thinking they're entitled to anything they can steal, read some of the comments at the linked article above. Or at Democrat Underground or Daily Kos. A huge number of commenters write that there isn't anything wrong with stealing food from Wal-Mart because it's "a rich corporation."   Indeed, anyone who points out that stealing food is wrong is accused of being racist or of hating the poor.

D.C. politicians--with the full support of Democrat voters--have built a huge, deadly bomb.  A human IED.  And now that it's been activated it can't be de-fused.  Hmmm...

Wait...Democrats have a secret trick to make everything better:  They'll pass Obama's so-called immigration "reform" bill (a.k.a. amnesty) and add 30 million *more* poor to our welfare rolls!  It's brilliant!

Oh, and in the event of widespread food riots:  Does anyone at all believe the Dems would mobilize federal troops *against the rioters*?  Let me make clear that I *don't*.  I think federal troops--incluing all military personnel--will be ordered to form defensive perimeters around federal offices and politicians' homes.  As far as the Dem leadership is concerned, the rest of us will just be *targets.*
