don't the amish have a lot of "higher power" influence in all aspects of their daily lives, including their education?

don't the amish have a lot of guns?

don't the amish have a lot of school shootings?

I agree with the letter, I like the recent Amish influx. Love the work ethic, craftmanship, and products they bring. I also oddly like the smell of horse manure, not so much on cow manure. Only downside of the Amish is the buggy traffic, especially at night... always have to be on guard driving backroads.

The Amish that have just moved to the Town of Poland are much better lit (front and back of buggy) than those who have been in the area for years. They are no different than being on the lookout for a slow moving tractor or even a child on a bike.

As far as the manure goes, if there is so much you can't open your windows or be in the yard, it sounds like there is some serious exageration going on there.

I would rather avoid an occasional "pile" than to try to avoid mess made by manure spreaders that you can't avoid (Dry Brook Road and Route 394).

Be thankful we have new neighbors who are law abiding citizens and expect nothing from us other than to be good neighbors back to them.

If you like the smell of horse manure then you must be a horse. That's like saying you like the smell of ***** if you're not a horse.

also, for the record. i like the amish. i like what they stand for. i like their work ethic. i like how their kids are taught to use firearms as implements from a very young age. i like how religion is a big part of their life. i like how they've shunned things like television, thusly non inundated with violence. i like how they have almost zero gun violence, even though they have the same access to guns.

also, horseshat doesn't smell that bad. lol sorry but just my opinion.

Appreciate the Amish and their ways. Perhaps they will be the only survivors if we ever get a total shutdown of our cyber ways. Better stay friends with them as they just simply know how to survive well.
