Uh. Neighbor is Amish. Moved here right from Lancaster PA to Rural NYS. He pays property tax, AND school tax, even though his (six OMG) kids go to an Amish school. His business and therefore home and land are not church property, therefore he pays taxes on that too for his organic dairy farm with 80 head of cattle. And the Amish do have medical insurance too, and since they're in a massive block of subscribers, they actually pay less than I do and have a better plan as well.

I would say that for medical services you might be right, but I can tell you right now you're dead wrong with absolutes when it comes to prescriptions. It drives me nuts that I can't walk into a pharmacy for "drug x" and get an actual freakin' price. Cash is the highest, but different insurance companies get different rates for the same thing. Some might be a higher "quote" but they cover more of the price of the drug. I was paying $46 for an inhaler without insurance, and $42 With.

Bingo. We fertilize with excess manure from the organic dairy farm next door. and it goes on the field AFTER harvest, so it lays on the top of the soil and composts all winter long (you can see steam escaping the piles of compost) and by the time in MAY when we're looking to plant, There's no more harmful bacteria left. or it's so greatly reduced it's not a concern. I also believe that the E.coli breakouts in spinach and other foods were from the uncleanliness of the fieldworkers PICKING the veggies, Not from the fertilizer used in producing the plants.

As the co-owner of a small farm in rural NY, thank you. We have 110 acres, 7 polled Herefords, (one born 2 Sundays ago), 5 pigs and 75 chickens. We strive to bring well produced food to people's tables at a price they don't need a second mortgage for. I am flabbergasted when I go into co-ops and see they are selling ham steaks from pastured pork for $12.00 a pound. I honestly don't know how they get anyone to afford that. I feel *guilty* charging $5 a pound for my pork. Our CSA is one of the cheapest in the areas as well. We just want to feel people good food at an honest price.

(f) But that works both ways. States ALSO have the right to INCREASE personal freedoms, legalized homosexual marriage.

Great! so I can marry by partner in NY, but still file three tax returns, a joint return for NY and two for Federal. And if he's in the hospital, in NY, I can see him, but Virginia, or any other ridiculously homophobic state, and I'm not granted access. No, Civil rights (or Personal Freedoms) NEED to be Federal, across the WHOLE country, not just for the states to decide how many rights they would like people to have when they are within their state lines.

'Using a combination of MITB (man in the browser injection) technology and social engineering, fraudsters are not only able to bypass OOBA but also buy themselves more time since the transactions have been verified and fly under the radar of fraud detection systems,' Trusteer's Amit Klein warned."

My Dad carried one. I was in awe when he brought it home. The charging dock, spare batteries, it kept me as a kid in constant amazement. I remember him writing the passwords on the bezel in pencil since it flashed for like 30 seconds and then disappeared, and he couldn't memorize it in that amount of time.He had it the last few years before he retired in '95 after a 35 year stint. He was a CE for the Fed Reserve in NYC.
