If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Hermsdorfer turned the horse over to a local farmer until the two men came forward. The sheriff's department has attempted to call different people to pick up the horse, but no one has answered the phone, according to the report.

Amish people have phones?

And computers with internet connections.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."

Yeah, but the horse knows the way home.

A guy here got a DUI on a mule, and tried the same defense (the mule knew where it was going). It didn't work.

@Cyber Liberty

I have to admit I am surprised. Never known any practicing Amish,but I have known a few Mennonites,and I would be surprised if any of them own computers.

Amish here have a study center where they would have phones and internet in order to communicate for business.

The Mennonites and Hutterites around here are just like you and me, having phones and internet like anyone else.

Because the Mennonite church does not have a singular head the local leaders have a lot of latitude as to what they will allow and won't.

And if the lion had attacked/ killer her, they would have shot the lion. I am willing to be that either drugs or alcohol was involved.
