Report; Wyoming may buy an aircraft carrier
Trib Com ^ | February 24, 2012 | Jeremy Pelzer

Posted on 02/26/2012 2:58:28 AM PST by knarf

Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, 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.

They might want to hold off on that aircraft carrier until they get a coastline.

a) Why?

b) Does anyone in Wyoming know how to run an aircraft carrier? From what I understand it’s pretty dangerous and requires very strict choreography that not even the Soviets had a terrific grasp of.

An aircraft carrier is at least as useful an investment to a landlocked state as “green energy” is to the USA.

For any state legislature to have the valid concerns they expressed in this bill is notable. To attempt to get it done, even more notable, and to lead out more notable still.

This is SHTF preparation at it’s finest. While other states are convincing their citizens that the worst is over and the spending needs to keep on keeping on, WY is looking toward the potential future disaster scenario.

All this in a state with sound finances. Don’t know how much they receive from Uncle Sam in a year, but I will bet it is significant, and that is important to consider when looking at a complete meltdown of the feral government.

"Molon Labe!"

A novel by Boston T. Party (Kenneth W. Royce)

Book Description:

"After a decade of retaking their stolen freedoms, the people of Wyoming (many of them newcomers) are forced to finally confront their jealous masters in the U.S. Government. Can a lone, courageous state successfully resist federal tyranny, or has the Bill of Rights been reduced to a myth? Can an allegedly free people act free, or is our liberty just a 4th of July farce?

These issues weigh heavily on the shoulders of Governor James Wayne Preston, a decorated Desert Storm Marine helo pilot. Elected in 2014 on the Laissez-Faire Party ticket, he enjoys nearly full support of the legislature to return Wyoming to a long-lost era of liberty. But how far can he and the people of his state go before Washington, D.C. feels compelled to act? Will Wyoming's free and independent course reach actual secession? Will President Melvin Connor suppress the maverick Western state with federal troops? Will anybody come to Wyoming's aid?

Molon Labe! is a fictional account of a real-world blueprint for a free state initiative focused on Wyoming. If enough freedom-loving individuals will relocate there under a useful pattern, they can "liberate" the Cowboy State on many levels.

In Wyoming we could truly enjoy our rights of gun ownership, privacy, schooling, health and diet, unrestricted travel, and property. Boston shows us how it actually can be done!"

Let us assume that, just for the sake of argument, that the US has gotten to the point where Washington has dumped the constitution and that Wyoming is taking a final stand against the government of tyranny.

Which lake does Wyoming intend to keep this aircraft carrier, or if it intends to keep it in the Pacific, how does it intend to keep it well supplied without having to go through Idaho to do it?

Carrier technology is much more advanced now.

The SS (State Ship) Wyoming aircraft carrier might be a bit far fetched, but preparing for a meltdown of the federal government sadly may be good thinking. If Obama is re-elected such a meltdown could happen with chaos in the streets like Greece and some states actually seceding from the Union.

I think we need as many as we could get...why does everybody assume the carrier has to be in the state of Wyoming? I’m sure Texas and Alaska would gladly welcome our carriers alongside their coastline in a SHTF scenario.

We cannot expect Washington insiders to fix Washington’s problems. Even the newbies we send to Congress get corrupted — and quickly — so nothing ever gets done.

Only the States can solve this nightmare.

Remember, the free and sovereign States banded together to form a Union. The Constitution was written and ratified to create that Union and protect our freedoms. If that Constitution is set aside, as we’re seeing now, then the States must exercise their sovereignty to get us back on course. And THAT will NOT play well in Washington!

ATTABOY, WYOMING!! KEEP IT UP!!

Instead of creating their own state gold-backed currency, which is the only US constitutional way they could do it directly, they should create a heavily audited, state insured corporation to issue a scrip currency.

This would pass legal muster, and it would have all the advantages of script currency, which are plenty, plus powerful laws of economics on its side.

It would go a huge distance to stabilize their economy in uncertain economic times, and it would always be a completely *voluntary* system for everyone involved.

It could also be a secure, common technology but high tech way of doing things. Most cellphones with cameras could be used as “cash registers”. This would keep costs of the system very low. Mostly just computers and phone lines.

The scrip itself could be printed on plain paper. The important part of the scrip would be the data matrix bar code on the reverse. It would be confirmed with a PIN number.

Using the system would be about as easy as using a debit card, but without a card reader or a credit card company.

I am sure they have people who know every aspect of running a carrier. A surprising number of guys from land locked states sign up for the Navy.

Where to build it is a more serious issue.

“I think I know where they’re going with this. My state tried it about a hundred and fifty years ago. It didn’t go well.”

It will have to be tried again, eventually.

The left, which has acquired an ever-increasing grasp upon the reins of power in this land, will never let that grip loose without the “persuasion of force”.

How “well” it will go the second time around, can’t say. Like you, I’m not optimistic, either.

But there will be no option, unless traditionalists/conservatives can be satisfied living under leftist dominance...

f Yellowstone blows, I don’t want to be any closer.

May as well cosy up - if Ol’ Yeller goes up there will be no place to hide - just be sure if you are less than 1,000 miles away, not to shelter in any above ground structure as the roof will colapse with the weight of the ash - think concrete.

Followed by a worldwide winter for several decades or centuries ...

Maybe there is more to this California falling into the sea than we care to think about?
Of course they ‘laughed’ when NY was in the planning stages of the “Erie Canal”.

In terms of technology and/or equipment, might not be as much problem building a trench to the Pacific as it was a ditch between Albany and Buffalo.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
“they” scoffed at the Erie Canal
“they” scoffed at walking on the moon.
“they” said no one like BO would ever be prez.

So, to be able to berth the “Big E” in Jackson Hole WY just requires a little thought and stamina.

Like when the clouds opened up and a voice boomed
“One wish, I will grant you one wish”
“I have a fear of flying, I would like a bridge so I can visit Hawaii regularly”
“That my friend is not only impractical but darn nigh impossible. The logistics alone are mind boggling”.

“OK, well, when do you think BO will start making sense and all will catch on that he is a fraud”?

“hmmm do you want four or 6 lanes on that bridge”?
