    What is that supposed to mean? Some nut was cutting the Amish men’s beards off, something that in their culture is a BIG humiliation. The Amish are peaceful people and should not be harmed. Does Danziger think he is funny here? He seems to be belittleing the Amish.

    They’re freeloaders, profiting from everything the US provides all around them. If they were an independent country they wouldn’t survive.

    Recently on UK TV there have been a couple of programmes showing a cultural exchange between British & Amish teens (as part of their rumspringa). We learnt a great deal about these folks. As far as I could ascertain, they do pay local, state & federal taxes. They’e exempt from your social security because they take care of their own and therefore won’t receive social security benefits. They only pay when they are involved in a mixed Amish & non-Amish partnership. Even though they pay taxes, they largely send their kids to their own private schools. They do interact & transact with other non-Amish communities i.e. sell their goods and buy goods & services from the wider local & national economy. What exactly are they freeloading? Defence? Really?

    Don’t think for a moment the Amish will not use “medical benefits” for themselves. Seen many Red/White/Blue cards @ clinics.

    In the event that civilization as we know it went to hell in a hand basket, I suspect they would be the only ones to survive intact.

    I’m with Hurst5809 on this. Strikes me as a cheap-shot cartoon, pointing only at the “amusement” value of something that’s very serious to the persons involved.

    Zit seems to live on his own planet, populated by Jetsons.

    The Amish are entitled fair game for Lefty a$$baggers like Danziger. Any identifiable class of spiritually oriented Americans (who aren’t Muslim) can and will be denigrated by the Democrat Media Industrial Complex, of which Danziger is a classic example.

    Seems Jeff is pointing out, in an Ed-cartoonist’s way, that in spite of the cultural differences, there exist some behavioral similarities….
