Wyoming Narrowly Rejects Doomsday Bill

unabomber-dollarHad it passed, Wyoming would have developed a contingency plan for the collapse of the United States — possibly including the purchase of an aircraft carrier, enacting a military draft, amassing a standing army for protection from surrounding states, and issuing of an alternate currency. The Casper Star-Tribune reports:

The Wyoming House of Representatives on Tuesday voted down legislation to launch a study into what the state should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States. House Bill 85, which has received national media attention in recent days, was rejected 30-27 in a final House vote.

The bill would have created a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government. The task force also would have looked at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency.

       The Aircraft carrier was inserted into the bill to make a mockery of the author by a democrat. Clearly he was successful in making a mockery of all of U as well. Funny how the incompetent always point at the prepared as fools.

    maybe they’ll even cause the first crisis, doomstay level hyperinflation trying to fund the project, or paying their troops with alternative currency and have it struck down in court as unconstitutional even if it isn’t

    Who is the guy who types these three paragraphs in every story? Can we get a longer story for a change?
