Did you see this yesterday at The Blaze? The state of Wyoming is considering legislation that would help state agencies prepare for a collapse of the national government and thus help its citizens survive the ensuing chaos.
Here are a few paragraphs from the story, read the whole article yourself. Is there any downside to being prepared?
In the event that America’s political system or economic stability collapses, some Wyoming lawmakers contend that a viable plan must be in place. Enter Bill 85, which passed its first vote in the state’s House on Friday. If advanced, the “Doomsday Bill” would create a state-run government task force that would explore and handle energy supplies, food shortages and other needs related to a potential nationwide governmental collapse.
“The task force would include state lawmakers, the director of the Wyoming Department of Homeland Security, the Wyoming attorney general and the Wyoming National Guard’s adjutant general, among others,” reports Trib.com.
And here’s the kicker: If, indeed, such a horrific incident takes hold, Wyoming would potentially be able to issue its own currency — an action that would allow the state to isolate and self-contain, while continuing its commerce and operations. Additionally, WTOP.com reports that the proposed task force will examine the conditions under which the state government would need its own army, aircrafts and other materials.
Here is a completely unrelated factoid about Wyoming. In 1980, Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter put in place the Refugee Resettlement Act. From the outset Wyoming has refused to resettle refugees and is the only state that does not participate in the BILLION dollar program to bring third-world refugees to America.
Maryland resettled 32,986 needy people through 2008. 10,000 of those resettled in Maryland are Russians, but large numbers of Somalis, Afghans, Iranians, Iraqis and Liberians are in the mix. And, LOL! by contrast, Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware resettled a paltry total of 774 refugees.
Why do I mention this? It’s just that Wyoming strikes me as a fascinating and attractive state that must be made up of residents who don’t give a flying c*** about political correctness as this “doomsday” planning would indicate. I wonder what their tax rates are?
Update: Another doomsday article, this time at USA Today of all places, here.
