That almost reads like a reasonable thing to do until the aircraft carrier part, at which point you know you're just hearing from yet another ranting lunatic with no common sense.

If you're going to do risk assessments you can save yourself a lot of time and money by eliminating the most unlikely scenarios up front. If the US government collapsed, your cunning plan would be useless anyway.

If I was a Wyomite, I'd be opposed to them wasting my tax money on frivolous expenditures to satisfy a lunatic's paranoid fantasy. Since I'm not, I think it's funny and wish them Godspeed.

Clearly Wyoming poses an existential threat to the USA.

We need to bomb their nuclear enrichment facilities before it's too late.

Having supplies, procedures, and structures in place in the event of various disasters is an excellent idea. Practicing and drilling is also a good idea. But some idiot always has to come along and take it too far.

Good idea: having a couple weeks of food, water, medicine, and emergency supplies in case a natural disaster occurs and regular transportation is disrupted.

GaryPDX idea: having all of the above, and stockpiling ammo to shoot Obama's storm troopers when they come to take you away to the Organizing For America concentration camps.

A smart raving lunatic would use the funds designated for the aircraft carrier and use them to turn cattle into a platform for machine guns and cannons.

Well the first thing they should do is change their name. Everyone knows that Wyoming is Latin for "No State Here". Maybe they would get more attention from the federal government if the other 49 states knew it existed.

For a state that probably has a lot of people whining about the ridiculous federal government spending their money...I'm glad their state government is spending money on a study for aircraft carriers in a landlocked state.

Remember, the state sport in Wyoming is puking off the back of a pickup truck while driving through town on the gravel road. That said, the nicest man I ever met was a farm foreman in Wyoming who helped me get my car unstuck in the mud (stuck in the mud due to my stupidity).

Don't be too proud of this derpological terror you've constructed, Wyoming. The ability to herp-a-derp a state is insignificant next to the power of the Forcebongo.

I'm sure the first thing that would happen is that the petty little tyrant wanna be pricks who thought this bill up would start killing each other to be the 'Lord Humungous' of Wyoming. Then they could safely diddle little girls and boys like they do in their fantasies.

Those wyomingites are so much smarter than the rest of us. that's why their votes count four times as much as the average californian's does.

In other news, wyoming is a place which basically be divided into two groups - dirt poor type people and evil rich white people. i'm not saying that they're evil because they're white or evil because they're rich or any such nonsense - there just literally happens to be a bunch of evil rich white people there, of which dick cheney is a perfect example. basically, they are tax exiles who use the fiction of wyoming residency as a means to enrich themselves. i took a long horse ride in the lands around jackson (something you can do on google earth) and saw dozens and dozens of empty $20m+ megamansions that serve as legal residences for people who don't actually happen to be there like ever.

It's really frightening how racist this country really is. All that progress we thought we made since the civil rights movement can officially be chalked up to "white people didn't have much to complain about until they stole the White House".

Can't be a lot of people complaining, there isn't a lot of people there. There is however a shiatload of nuclear warheads and coal.

Misanthrope idea: also having a generator, spare gasoline for the generator and/or primary vehicle, pistol and shotgun for defense, rifle for hunting (shotgun, too), and ammunition for all three to last through several hunts and/or home invasions. Bears can be bad, but humans are the animal you really need to worry about in these situations.

Yeah so I read the Bill. It gives $32000 to reimburse travel and per diem for people from the state to meet with Federal officials to discuss the impacts. Didn't see any mention of aircraft carriers or strike aircraft. $32000 is nothing to them since they are one of the only states in the black.

I don't think this has anything to due with the national government. Didn't you see "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" the wyoming government is now just getting off their lazy asses and using this bill to start gathering info on how to deal with a real alien attack.

st.bobo: not sure how we get from 'idiots planning for the zombies' to 'RACISTS!'


Conservatives always go a little crazy when a D is in the White House. Clinton and the black UN helicopters, etc. But the level of crazy expressed by the right-wingers following Obama's inauguration is completely over the top. The racism is fuel on the fire of republican paranoia. The birth certificate conspiracy is the most visible symptom of racism - as if there would be any question whatsoever if the Prez were a white guy. With Obama, even after he releases both the certificate of live birth AND the long-form certificate, he's still a Kenyan in the eyes of the totally-not-racist right-wing.

The teabaggers are just klansmen substituting blind, directionless faux conservatism for outright racist rhetoric, when they aren't busy screaming outright racist rhetoric, that is. They need something to scream that isn't "n****r", and the GOP is happy to supply them the necessary substitute. They're so grateful for a direction to spew their outrage that they don't even mind when the direction completely changes direction every few weeks. It's just a place-holder.

Baggers, militia-men, survival-fetishists. The overlap is nearly 100%.

If the population of Wyoming were compared to USA cities, it would be like #25, somewhere around Memphis. Even jokes about the last person still living in Detroit ... Detroit's population at #18 is still >700K. Wyoming is only >500K.
