LOL Well, Tip, I've never seen their children barefoot, let alone in winter, selling their goods. And I got two lbs of Amish butter on Saturday. The kids are sometimes at the stands, but I loved being at my uncle's produce stand when I was a kid and I wasn't abused.
Now, I do think their furniture is ridiculously high, and I don't care for the style. Like any other group....some are fairer than others. And I think it varies from one part of the country to another.
As far as the photo thing, if that's their wish, I respect it. There are MANY times I say "Don't take my picture!" I'm not Amish, just unkept at times.
I've never seen 'Amish hell.' They are non-combative. I did see one beating his horse and I spoke up.
Well, I've seen the Amish children barefoot with my own eyes, and screaming at and chasing after bewildered tourists, who did not act with intentional disrespect, but simply have no idea that their snapshot is considered a mortal sin in Amish World.

Think about it...a majority of Americans cannot name their own mayor, congressional reps or even the VP. They sure as heck have no knowledge about the traditions associated to the limited Amish community.

And, yes...the Amish also have a poor record on equine care.

I am not implying that all Amish behave so.

Additionally, I will retract my generalization on equine care.
Some Amish mistreat their horses; I, too, have witnessed it.
However, I have witnessed others treat their animals well.

I do not mean to denigrate all Amish.
I can only speak of what I have witnessed.

As was explained to me by an Amish friend, they normally avoid SSI because it is a form of insurance which is taboo. However, if they are an employee of a commercial for-profit business they are of course covered by SSI because it is the law. In such a case, the Amish employee will have SSI deducted from their pay but they will never apply for SSI benefits which means they will lose everything they pay into SSI.

Because Medicare is considered as a form of insurance, the same situation as SSI applies. Most Amish communities have their own doctors but this does not mean they won't seek medical assistance from a non-Amish doctor or hospital if needed and then pay for the cost out of pocket. While an illness or injury is normally considered "God's will", common sense usually prevails and medical treatment will be sought.

As a teenager back in the 80s I spent a month on an Amish farm volunteering to help bring in the summer crops. They were the hardest working and coolest people I've ever met. They may seem a bit standoffish towards strangers but once they get to know you, they treat you like family.
Really? the coolest ? you might want to get out more :) As far as taxes go as long as they don't cause too many pot holes with they're
buggies who cares ?

Tip, I don't doubt your word for a minute, I've just never seen that kind of behavior from them. The most agressive I've seen is one Amish man go after a black snake that had slittered up on the blanket that one of the babies was sleeping on under the trees. He literally stepped on one of his friend's back to get to it.

They are not 'kind' to any animals that I see. They don't think of them as pets, but 'equipment.' Yet, they are good to my two little dogs.

The one thing all of the beach residents have, and there are only 17 places on our beach, is the women swin in their dresses. That's fine. But they don't wear underwear and all of us have seen more Amish a$$ then we ever care to. The men swim in their long pants. The take a step ladder out into the water to dive off of.

No, the majority of Americans do not know about the photo taking. But the local law enforcement and media did when there was the school shooting and they could have been more respectful.

Tip, our discussion from the beginning has been there are good and bad in all groups.

I've only been around the Amish from PA, MD and DE.
There is never a reason to whip a horse on it's face or head. You will make them 'head shy' and no one will ever be able to pat them on the head or feed them a carrot, and you'll have to approach them from the side to put the bridle on. And it leaves scars. Like everything else, you won't get far beating a lame or tired horse anyway.
Remember this when you get that equine to ride back and forth to court.:-)

Well, you can't lay the puppy mills solely at the feet of the Amish. I know a lady a mile from me that let her 'much too old to be bred' small dog suffer through 48 hours of labor to deliver 3 live and 1 dead puppy, all to be sold. Her vet reported her and offered to spade the dog for free.
Some have 'gotten out', as you put it, and returned. Some have been ostracized by the elders for some wrong they committed. It's a different and closed culture. I don't live under the illusion that none of them beat their wives or abuse their kids. Probably to a lesser % than other groups, but it most likely goes on.

Well now, Tip. You retract your former generalizations about the Amish and some of there weird behaviors, that's good, Tip. But you be sure to do the same when it comes to degrading those urban blacks who act less than civil at times. Ya hear!
