Wyoming Watching Too Much ‘Doomsday Preppers'; Moving Forward With Wacky Disater Contingency
Something is up with the water in Wyoming. Maybe they are watching too much 'Doomsday Preppers' on NatGeo or haven taken the Mayan Apocalypse to heart. Whatever the case they want to be ready for disaster. Even if that means getting an aircraft carrier.
House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create 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 would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also 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.
