Wyoming lawmakers on Tuesday voted down the state's "Doomsday Bill," which among other things, called for the state to explore buying an aircraft carrier, creating its own currency and starting a military draft for its own army.

The Wyoming House of Representatives voted 30-27 against the bill during a session Tuesday; 31 votes are needed to pass the bill. It already was stripped Monday of provisions for the aircraft carrier and draft. State Rep. Dan Zwonitzer (R-Cheyenne) said lawmakers did not debate the bill before the vote.

"There was no discussion on it today," Zwonitzer told The Huffington Post Tuesday afternoon. "It went up and we voted."

The bill originally was pushed as a study of the state's homeland security and its approach to emergencies. The bill included a study of how the state would handle running out of food or a collapse of the nation's economic system. Zwonitzer said that he was in favor of the bill.

at least they're thinking ahead, kinda surprised the vote was so close though.

Lots of empty space in Wyoming to park an aircraft carrier.

The trick would be in getting the carrier there in the first place.

If they get an aircraft carrier wouldn't it also make sense to get a nuclear sub? They could hang out together and shoot at bears and elk.

I was expecting a thread about capital punishment of a serial killer.

We're they planning on putting the thing on wheels and cruising around looking for trouble like the A Team or something?

were they talking old time aircraft carriers?  or nuke?

wouldn't a nuclear aircraft carrier be a cheap way of getting a nuclear reactor?
