Amish need to have less offspring and use the time they would've used to "multiply" to take a bath!!

The amish are soon to take over our communities because they outnumber us vastly. Every time I drive down a country road, my nose turns up because of the nasty smell in the air; not only from the schmoes themselves, but also their livestock. In addition, they slow our commuting by 20% because of their slow horse and buggies. Their offspring also tend to be lacking in at least one of their 5 senses, if not more. On the bright side, they are keeping the wheelchair and hear aid companies in business. However, the amish handicap population require an immense amount of hard labor to push them around. All in all, they have stunk up the world, slowed down our travel time, and increased the amish population by too many in general. Post your thought...

Why is it important for you that these people stay clean.(clean being a level that you are comfortable with) I personally care little about their hygiene habits because I never have any contact with them. There are smelly people everywhere.

Their population is totally insignificant when compared to the numbers of people who live in their vicinity. So what is your point?

If you wish them 'gone' then tell us why? Is this conversation about you or them. Are you attempting to be theatrical?

My position on these Ams is that they can be as dirty as they like(I doubt that they are) They are peacful, quirky and resourceful and they are a serious attempt at 'bucking the trend' in this modern world. You try doing without electricity for a week while 'bringing in the sheaves' and see how smelly you get!

Up the debate with some real content, Please. I want the 7 points so bad that I can smell them.(Oops! taste them)

Vote for me for standing up against this 'rant' and forcing it to dissipate. It would be nice to win one.

I can say "No, they shouldn't" and my argument would be equally, or more valid, than yours.

I don't think that demeaning someone's entire lifestyle poses a valid debate. There is absolutely no hard fact you can use to prove your point.
