CODY, Wyoming (Reuters) – In a sign of rising consumer confidence prevailing over go-it-alone pessimism in the Cowboy State, Wyoming lawmakers on Tuesday narrowly defeated a “doomsday bill” to help the state prepare for a total collapse of the U.S. government and economy.
The bill, rejected on a 30-27 vote by the state House of Representatives, would have allocated $16,000 for a panel of legislators and emergency managers to study various measures, including a new state-issued currency, for handling a range of apocalyptic scenarios.
I was sorta hoping they would come up with some serious crazy once the bill was passed, and I certainly couldn't wait to see how they would flood half the state so they could build a navy.
You already have a security force in case of disaster. It's called the National Guard, you twats.
