Kentucky Governor Announces Plans To Build New Noah's Ark

News

There are press releases and thenthere are press releases: "FRANKFORT, Ky.— Governor Steve Beshear today joined the Ark Encounter LLC to announce the planned construction of a full-scale Noah’s Ark tourist attraction in northern Kentucky." Of course! Get all the state's most important officials over there. This is going to be big. IT'S GOING TO NEED SOME ANIMALS SO STOP SHOOTING AND DEEP-FRYING THEM ALL, KENTUCKY. This new theme park will also include "a replica of the Tower of Babel with exhibits, a 500-seat 5-D special effects theater, an aviary, and a first-century Middle Eastern village." This is obviously the most important thing Kentucky has done since inventing the horse.


So, another Creationist theme park. Despite their glee, Kentucky must be careful to exercise the separation of church and state.

Developers are seeking state tax incentives under the Kentucky Tourism Development Act. If they qualify — and Beshear indicated they would — they could receive as much as $37.5 million in incentives.

Perfect. Don't worry, libruls. Kentucky has thought about this. This theme park is very much a for-profit endeavor and ABSOLUTELY no money will go to, say, helping the poor, so it's all good. Just business. [Kentucky Governor/Louisville Courier-Journal]

Here's the kind of weird election year 2018 is: Democrat Tammy Baldwin, among the most progressive of the ten Democratic US senators from states won by Donald Trump, introduced a "Made in America Act" bill earlier this month. It would require federal infrastructure projects to use US-made steel, iron and other products, and Donald Trump is an enthusiastic supporter. Even says he'll sign it. But both of the Republican Senate candidates from Wisconsin -- who otherwise insist they love, love, love Trump the most -- have staked out positions against the bill, because, um, well, a Democrat introduced it, so populist made-in-America legislation is probably secret socialism. America Not First if it's a demmycrat idea!
