Wyoming State Legislature Advances Doomsday Bill

Plan for the worst, hope for the best.

My home state of Wyoming is advancing a bill that would create a task force which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes.  These would include disruptions in food and energy supplies, as well as a complete meltdown of the federal government.

The Casper Star Tribune is reporting that the task force would “examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.”

An aircraft carrier?

The WSS Buffalo Bill Cody….that’s what I would name her.  Someone should let the state of Wyoming know that they are landlocked.  Maybe they are concerned about Utah trying to take over the Flaming Gorge Reservoir?

The task force would also look at “the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed.”  Now to me, that sounds like a better idea than reverting to a regressive barter system.  Despite the overblown concern with strategic naval positions, this is what I would want my state government to be discussing on the floor of the legislative chamber – not just the currency bit, but all of it.  Folks your local government is going to either be your best friend or worst enemy in a crisis.  I give Wyoming a WWTJD  (What Would Thomas Jefferson Do) shout out.  I believe that if more Americans would take an interest in local politics, rather than investing so much time and energy into the national scene, this nation would be in a much better position to handle a catastrophe.  Now I know that some readers might think that this state, which has a population smaller than that of Alaska, has sent a bunch of nutty preppers to the state capitol.  This may be true, but I would be quick to point out that the Centers for Disease Control did take the time to assure the public that it does have contingencies in place for a Zombie Apocalypse.  ;-)  I don’t know what these two facts have to do with one another but they sure do make for a fun blog post.

Now keep all of this in perspective.  This wouldn’t be the first time that politicians had been swept up in a nation-wide movement in order to look good to their constituency,  but perhaps Washington, DC will take notice…one can only hope.

    Nice to see Wyoming is gearing for the worst. Life is going to get interesting once the full effects of that 11 trillion dollar flood is felt. Nothing like buying milk at 100.00 a gallon. Hope the other states follow Wyoming’s lead in preparedness. Even still, private citizens need to continue to help themselves by being prepared. Rely on your self not the government to safe your life. If its important you will. If not, then life’s a btch. Let the government worry about the state, not you.

    Living in a national forest in the mountains forces us to be prepared for anything and everything. It’s full-time work getting and being prepared but well worth it. We’ve gone through long periods with power down, being snowed in, having the well pump freeze up, hunters trespassing, attempted thefts. Walmart now has large buckets of dried food products for storage at reasonable prices. Check it out! The most important thing is to look at every scenario that could happen whether it’s on a national scale or local and prepare to be self-sustaining. You don’t want to sit in the dark and cold waiting for FEMA to show up whenever they can. You won’t be the first person on their list. It’s up to you to protect yourself and your family.

    I saw an interview with the legislator who introduced this bill. The aircraft carrier part was added by an opponent who intentionally wanted to make the bill look like a tin foil hat conspiracy strategy in order to marginalize it. The bill is actually very rational, and common sense. We should all be wary of how we respond to information. There are people intent on manipulation in all things.

  6. Sounds like a terrific plan overall, but I’m thinking that’s gonna be a long commute to that carrier! Perhaps he was implying that they might name a carrier after the state?

    Click the name, surivive!

    Self reliance is the key ,and a good set of skills; people who sit and talk about it wont get very far but those who get out and practice those skills such as home gardening and food preservation,self defense and other tactical training will have the best chance. Ask yourself if it is a dog eat dog world now what will it be like when the brown sticky stuff hits the fan
