    Interesting .....

    Add up all the hunters in just a handful of states, and come to a striking conclusion:
    The state of Wisconsin has gone an entire deer hunting season without someone getting killed. That's great. There were over 600,000 hunters.
    Allow me to restate that number. Over the last two months, the eighth largest army in the world - more men under arms than Iran; more than France and Germany combined - deployed to the woods of a single American state to help keep the deer menace at bay.
    But that pales in comparison to the 750,000 who are in the woods of Pennsylvania this week. Michigan 's 700,000 hunters have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia , and it's literally the case that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
    The point? America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.
    Add those figures to those who bear arms in the home for protection, and law enforcement!

    What do you call a deer that jumps in the road in front of you?

    Yeah, but that's a Mexican army.

    Heh, well, strictly speaking that's only half true, but any army that tries to invade Compton after dark isn't coming out alive, no matter what high-tech they use. ;)
