    2 things I learned about the Amish from this- 1)nonresistance, which means no fighting, ever. So what are they gonna do? 2)simple/necessitousness lifestyle, which means that they will not sue you as they don't want the $$. This begs the question: why is it copyrighted?

    No fighting?? Those farm boys use to kick ass & take names in a few country bars I hung out at in the 80's. They had no problem taking it outside & sticking together. Don't mess with one w/ a whip!

    I once saw a young Amish female deck a big guy w/ one punch that won't keep his hands to himself. Frig-n funny!!!! Made my nite. Figured she learned that uppercut from fight-n w/brothers?

    BTW J, They do pay SOME taxes. http://traveltusc.com/top-10-questions-about-the-amish/ I do feel they should pay to use the roads like the rest of us. Plow-n poo off the roads can be hazardous :-(

    One thing we have to be cautious of is that our guide mentioned that he uses his solar panels to power his PC. He might see this while shopping for a new abacus. hmmmmmmm.....

    I have a few co-workers that live in Amish communities. My wife has worked / visited with Amish families thru children services. Like most groups & cultures, unfortunately some pretty shocking things go on.

    I did a quick BING image search of "amish cyclorama". There are hundreds of pics of the mural, including a few that are landscapes of the whole thing.
