Montana looks for an aircraft carrier

27 Feb

Montana, if you don’t remember, is a long way from the ocean.

Any ocean.

State representatives have advanced legislation to launch a study what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.

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.

Here it comes: House members approved an amendment by Republican Representative Kermit Brown, 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.

Really?
Wonder where it would be based.

How about here outside Jackson Hole?

Now, we should note the bill’s sponsor, state Republican David Miller says he doesn’t anticipate any major crises hitting America anytime soon.

But with the national debt exceeding $15 trillion and protest movements growing around the country, Miller said Wyoming — which has a comparatively good economy and sound state finances — needs to make sure it’s protected should any unexpected emergency hit the U.S.

Okay, that explains the aircraft carrier.
