    Amish Under Attack In MN



    The barn being rebuilt.

    What's up with people these days? I don't think the Amish are out to hurt anyone. Are they?

    The nutjobs are alive and well everywhere. No telling why they would target the Amish
    I'm not tolerating Political Correctness anymore, from now on it's tell it like it is.

    Sad. Being a fire investigator, a lot of times these are thrill crimes for young people with too much free time and nothing to do but cause problems.

    Hope it wasn't due to a faulty omish heater.

    All kidding aside. Sad if accidental, Very sad if deliberate.

    It's much easier to pick on the type of people that will pray and hunt for the good in everything, that to pick on the type of people that will hunt you down and prey on you. What goes around comes around. Hopefully it's sooner than later.

    One of my best friends has his own real estate company that also works with the Amish, which is very unusual. They tend to pay cash for everything or they don't buy it. And they tend to buy large farms that have been done in by all the Federal Farm laws for famers who failed due to those laws/debts.

    So they get large farms with lots of land, cut off the electricity and all outside connections to the house and farm and live their own quiet lives in a, mainly, honest and open way.

    Then comes along the developers and the towns folks who want their lands for development. And the town folks, typically newer people just moving in the area, that don't respect others who have lived a good and honorable life...and they go after them.

    It's a sad state. Once you experience one of these events in person you can begin to understand why the Amish and their counterparts refrain from contact with the outside world.
