Wyoming House advances doomsday bill

So this happened today:

House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a task force to research and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

It would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment on Friday 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.

An aircraft carrier… A FUCKING AIRCRAFT CARRIER?!

Did you guys forget where we are in relation to the ocean? Let me map that for you. Where are we going to launch it, Yellowstone Lake?

Never mind the strike aircraft… I can’t… 

Update: The original article about the bill is here.
