Why hello there, this is Chris from Wander without being lost…AKA Wander. I made the mistake of suggesting that Ben invite Psycho cohosts for the Bat. I guess he thinks I am psycho, oh well. Let us have a serious discussion.
Is the apocalypse coming? Is dooms day just around the corner, about to ring your door bell? Some in the know think it is, they want to prepare, and they think you should pay for it! That is, of course, if you live in Wyoming.
“Idon’t think there’s anyone in this room today what would come up here and saythat this country is in good shape, that the world is stable and in good shape— because that is clearly not the case,” state Rep. Lorraine Quarberg,R-Thermopolis, said. “To put your head in the sand and think that nothing bad’sgoing to happen, and that we have no obligation to the citizens of the state ofWyoming to at least have the discussion, is not healthy.”
Some in Wyoming felt it would be necessary to have an aircraft carrier, and fighter planes. That sounds reasonable; everyone needs their very own carrier. Can you imagine a world that would try to limit your ability to have your very own floating city, equipped with an airport, kitchens and living quarters for over five thousand lucky survivors?
I am surprised that more states haven’t adopted bills like this one. Just think about how much money we can save without all of those people the doomsday will take out…0 that is right, 0 would be the savings! Aircraft carriers are so frickingexpensive that on the entire planet only 21 or 22 exist. Most nations can’t even afford to borrow one for the weekend let alone have one for…just in case.
This goes to show you that the fiscally conservative people of the great state of Wyoming know what the most important thing is…uber fricking expensive military toys that are stationed at the closest a thousand plus miles away. Economists are likely to point out that if Wyoming can afford one they might as well try to get three for the price of two; this would be a 33% discount. And while they are at it they might as well buy everyone in the state round trip tickets to never never land because that is as likely as Wyoming getting an aircraft carrier.
What say you, should we all preorder our pixie dust today and start thinking happy thoughts?
And before any one of you try to use the tired argument that this is old news remember "psycho" co-host. I think that about covers it!
