Well, if he doesn't pay taxes, he can get a job in the Obama administration when he gets out of jail.

Since I live out here in the "middle of nowhere" I think I have a right to comment on this.
Even out here in a rural area the Amish do live near enough to other people to pose a problem with the sewage. We all have to live in a way not to threaten other peoples health. They do not have a right to risk other peoples' health.
Though I respect the Amish, they do cause problems with their buggies on the road (very slow moving, don't very slow cars pose a problem and the buggies are even worse) They use the roads that we pay taxes for, and don't clean up the horse poop. The slow buggies cause accidents sometimes too.
Things are not the way they were years ago. Even in a rural area there are more people. We all have to live in this world together. Safety and sanitary conditions have to be.
Tina I was wondering did the Amish live there first or did they move in on your property. I was given to thinking the Amish all stay on family farms, that they have owned for 100s of years?
