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.

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.

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".

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%.

You're engaging in a logical fallacy. Often "both sides are bad" is a poor rhetorical argument, but just because it's often a bad point doesn't mean that it always is. In this case it seems to apply. Worse, you're the proof that it applies. But you, like your teabagging cousins, are too blinded by hate to notice that the crap your spewing is about as intelligent as the crap they're spewing.
 
2012-02-26 12:25:38 PM
Its a good start.

Every state ought to be passing similar bills. And I'm sure we will start to see many other states do so.

This is merely the beginnings of a good counterweight to the disintegrating moral and legal authority of the Federal government. They have proven time and again that they are neither interested in, nor capable of, responsibly running a nation-state.

Even when right in the middle of doing something racist, racists don't like to be told that they're racists. In a way it's a good sign - at least they seem aware that what they're doing is wrong, or at least not socially acceptable.

Actually, every nation has contingency plans. USA has plans for what would happen if Canada became an anarchy overnight. Canada has the same regarding USA. It actually makes sense for a state in the USA to have the same, it's just the specific stipulation for an aircraft carrier is patently absurd.

Are we sure someone didn't talk about wanting a ship named the "USS Wyoming" and another person misconstrued that into the state needing their own aircraft carrier?

I'm thinking of the practical uses of a derelict carrier, and there ain't much beyond storage.

VictoryCabal: 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.


When they come for your guns, give'em the ammo first

Aarontology: 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.


Cattle are transport vehicles. Bears, on the other hand, make great weapons platforms.

If you actually read the bill (new window), not the bullshiat article, it all is pretty reasonable. NO mention of an aircraft carrier. It pretty much talks about setting up a task force that will allow them to consider what to do should the national government break down. What sort of food or energy shortages would exist, how to get the National Guard and federal troops to work together, that sort of thing.

The bill itself makes a lot of sense. I'm wondering if this Rep tacked on the amendment with the draft and aircraft carrier because he didn't like the bill, and figured the amendment would make it look stupid and cause it to fail.

Well then, stop reminding us! That oil company you're lobbying for, TransCanada, is trying to stick a pipeline over our most crucial aquifer. It's also trying to take farmland from Texans, a situation that never ends well.

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


Don't you understand? The president's black, therefore anybody who doesn't support his policies is a racist, even if nothing they actually say could be construed as referencing race in any way. Obviously it just means they're dog-whisting, even if the only people who can apparently hear the whistling are progressives.

This is as opposed to, for example, all the progressives who spent years trying to paint Clarence Thomas as being stupid and a sexual predator. Voting D proves you can't possibly be racist, even if your rhetoric is full of time-worn racial stereotypes when you attack a black man.

Could that explain why republicans add an anti-abortion amendment to every damn bill that has any chance to pass? They don't want it to pass, so by adding an anti-abortion clause they get the democrats to do their dirty work.

The major issue with the bill is that it is unconstitutional on a very basic level. I don't mind the spirit of it.

18 enumerated powers

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

The 10th amendment does not supersede a regulated currency by the Federal Government.

it would require a Constitutional amendment to allow states to coin money.
