    Tha's right folks. There is a braniac state legislator from my home state of Wyoming that feels when society collapses the land locked Equality state will need an aircraft carrier. As Yellowstone Lake is the lagest lake I know of I have no idea if a helicopter carrier could do a 360* let alone a big boat like a Nimitz class carrier like the Stennis. I guess the HUGE communities of West Yellowstone, MT, Cody, WY, and Jackson, WY will have to step it up a bit and learn to build big metal floaty things with flat tops.

    It would of been placed in the pacific as a state interest in respect to a later date following a collapse. The state would of probably leased it to the department of defense until it was actually needed. Thats my guess. Look at the USSR prior to its collapse. Many of the states (now Countrys) were preparing with what little they had to secure its current & projected future assets. "The legislatures of the Soviet republics began passing laws undermining the control of the central government and endorsing independence". "This left all fifteen republics of the Soviet Union as independent sovereign states." They still are not that independent. Look at what happened in Georgia not long ago. Russia still claims a great majority of the old land mass from Moscow. I imagine DC would be the same way... God i certainly wouldn't want to be under the way of life lived in DC... :D

    Ah .... did you read the linked article? I'm thinking you took it all a bit more seriously than I intended it.

    I read it.. The brilliant Aircraft Carrier idea was scrapped lol. Thats why i said "would of been placed in the pacific" It's no secret that some states are actually talking about implementing some sort of preperation measures for something. Maybe its just hot air but that would be nothing new coming from a Government body...

    I just love how the left spews ridicule and mockery like this, and then calls the conservatives hateful, racist and the "party of no."
    Who is spewing the vitriol now kev?
    When in reality, WY HB85 is about preparation in the event of everything from natural disasters, to currency collapse to failure of the federal gov.
    It very much aligns with our discussions in Preparedness & Survival.
    But instead of researching the bill further, one of our resident lefties decides it's better to reference a ridiculous article from a devout leftist organization like mother jones.
    How hypocritical!

    A much better assessment of the bill is presented here:
    Doomsday Bill | Government | Crisis | The Daily Caller



    NWFAers can read the bill here: http://legisweb.state.wy.us/2012/Introduced/HB0085.pdf

    Personally, I think it would be great if the controlling interests (and controlling voters) in the state of Oregon had the brains and the foresight to look at our current situation and develop an honest attitude about it.
    Like this one:
    Bring on the "tin foil hat" flames lefties!

    You might as well. You started with ridicule, and that's all you have left.

    Such a Lark - everyone knows that Arizona and Nevada have plans for when California and Oregon sink into the OCean.
    I thought Wyoming was going to put up signs in case of SHTF - Californians and Oregonians - Do not enter. Leave money at border and return home.

    But every state needs a plan as to what to do in case of a major catastrophy - include financial and government
