There’s a proposal afoot in the State of Wyoming to study what the Equality State should do in the event of the collapse of the US government:
Some Wyoming state lawmakers want to study the possibility of creating a state currency to prepare for the possible collapse of the national government.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports the bill would set up a task force to study what the state should do in a range of catastrophes, including the possible political or economic collapse of the United States. Another potential disaster to be studied would be a disruption in food and energy supplies.
The proposal needed a little fine-tuning.
The so-called “doomsday” bill won initial backing in the state House on Monday after lawmakers dropped a proposal to study whether Wyoming should organize its own army and acquire an aircraft carrier and strike aircraft.
Wyoming won’t consider starting its own army and buying its own aircraft carrier and aircraft? Why not? Granted, the last time you could get an aircraft carrier as far north as St. Louis was 1993. But a carrier is definitely something Missouri ought to look into acquiring for itself. Particularly if Iowans start putting on airs again.
Mad props to Mr. Price.
