If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.
The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000. That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, which has 20 some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.
Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington DC
I got this joke and it made me laugh. I give it to you after altering it to my political affiliation.
Clinton, Kerry, Kennedy and Dean were sitting around strategizing.
"If we are going to make any gains in this election cycle we have to discredit the President", Hilary said.
"But how?" asked Kennedy. "He took full blame for Katrina and Rita and his numbers are starting to bounce back."
"Maybe there is some news from Iraq we can use," offered Kerry.
"Well it is reported that 3 Brazilian soldiers died today" said Clinton.
Dean jumped up and hollered "Yeeeeaarrh! That's it!"
He headed for the door.
"Are you sure that report is accurate?" Dean asked.
"Very sure," said Clinton.
"Ladies and gentlemen we have our quagmire!" shouted Dean as he bounded out of the room.
Clinton, Kerry and Kennedy just looked at each other with bewildered expressions.
Just then Dean stuck his head back into the room and asked, “Just so were clear, how many is a brazilian?”
