AMERICA ‘S HUNTERS —
A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin …
Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!
Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
(That’s more men under arms than in Iran . More than France and Germany combined. )
These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin , to hunt with firearms,
And NO ONE WAS KILLED.
That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and
Michigan ‘s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.
Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the
Hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states.
It’s millions more.
________ 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.
That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
Food for thought, when next we consider gun control.
Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters
Don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain…
What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
(IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS
WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING
CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS)
Designed by geniuses,
Run by idiots.
Yes you got it,, because I hunt, and I am part of OUR army, Thank you,
(Many thanks to the thousands of Americans who serve in our Armed forces around the globe! FB).

I saw the great little story in the Sergeant Grit Newsletter. Lots of submission from readers about the Marine Corp. This one was great and there is a wonderful quote at the end… Very accurate. The website is www.grunt.com. (“Butter Bars” refer to the gold colored 2nd Lt bar. A 2nd Lt is the rank of the newbie Lt…)
When I was with 2d Tank Bn at CLNC as a Corpsman, the 2ndLTs had to go to the range to qualify. I was assigned to be the Corpsman. (I was an HM1, E6 at the time). As the Butter Bars were taking their positions, I happened to notice one of the gentlemen using a “revolver” grip on holding the 1911, instead of the standard both hands under hold. I remarked to him that he might find it more comfortable in the long run if he used the under grip. He told me “I am an officer, and I know what I am doing!” (RIGHT!) So, I went back to my position with the RSO. Sure enough, the first round he fired, the slide came back and gouged the h-ll out of the “V” in his left hand. RSO calls… CORPSMAN UP! I cleaned it out thoroughly (ok, maybe a little more thorough that necessary). I told him what my Daddy had told me… “If yer gonna be stupid, ya gotta be tough!” Needless to say, he used the proper hold after that…

A long while back when the Jug was young, there was a thread on creating weapons to successfully fight Jihadists. There were several brilliant suggestions. One I remember devising whilst in a severely inebriated state, was the “Pork Gut Bazooka”. This would be standard anti-tank weapons with projectiles comprised of the viscera of a porcine origin. Naturally, I thought this genius and should be implemented immediately because of the disdain of what is considered an unclean and an holy beast by the extremists of this certain faith. From my understanding such an assault would prevent the targets from their expected reward of entrance into heaven and therefore, the inherit benefits of dying while fighting Jihad. Upon knowing of these weapons the opponents would immediately surrender and the War would have ended by the end of 2006.
It seems that a variation of this theme has just hit the market. I will be consulting my attorney post haste.

I didn’t see this in the American sites, maybe I just missed it. I always find interesting stories from all over the world on the BBC that are not even touched on in American media, left or right leaning. Americans are too interested in who won American Idol or other network reality show or watching trials of assholes that don’t matter one hoot in hell… (Myself excluded as I refuse these shit shows and pseudo news events)
