There is More Than One Reason to Move to Wyoming

Russ Steele

I lived in Wyoming for a couple of summers between College semesters, and worked in the oil and gas fields. Made good money for being just a laborer. Ellen and I have visited Wyoming multiple times in our RV and plan to return when ever possible. There are some great people in Wyoming.  And, according to this report some thinkers as well:

State representatives on Friday advanced legislation to launch a study into 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.

One of the triggers to a potential meltdown could be an extreme food shortage caused by the onset of the next mini ice age.  Growing season will become shorter and the bread basket of the norther hemisphere in the Canada and the US will move farther and farther south, resulting in less productivity during the transition. It was the bread riots that brought down the French Kings during the last mini-ice age.

Ann Althouse has some more thoughts on being prepared here. She thinks that every state should have a plan to operate should the US government collapse.

Do you think the liberal/progressive in Sacramento would even give a passing thought to the idea that California should have a plan like Wyoming?

    Liberal Progressives WORSHIP all levels of government as their provider of unemployment benefits, free healthcare, food stamps, mortgage assistance, welfare checks, grant money for their nonprofits, etc., etc., etc. No way any of the kids under the dome in Sacramento would waste a nanosecond away from their Starbucks to consider a backup plan unless it was something for themselves or their crony friends. I applaud Wyoming’s forwarding thinking and self sufficiency.
