The World's Largest Army

I just received this from a friend and thought it was worth passing on:

"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 during deer season. Michigan's 700,000 hunters have now returned home.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and it literally makes 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.


Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill the freezer.


It's a matter of national security! "
