    Am I the only one who finds the show "Amish Mafia" rediculous and unbelievable ?

    I will admit that I've attempted to watch a couple of times...

    I have been to the Amish country area in Lancaster many times and can't believe this crap has gotten on tv but I'm more appauled that they actually think we might think its true...

    Just my opinion...

    My most trusted business mentor and partner was Lancaster Amish. He felt the need to enlist in the Navy after college and was shunned for it for a decade. We spoke often about his Amish experiences, and the likes of this 'reality show' never came up - at all!

    Bill overcame his community's disappointment with kindness, reuniting with his parents before he was overcome by cancer. The Wharton School at UPenn held an overflow of 5000+ people at his eulogy. There were many, many Amish that attended.

    I think he would be appalled by what Hollyweird is doing to his community. Personally, I believe that it's just the loonie-left doing everything they can to destroy every fiber of our white-Christian, American base. Disgusting.

    I posted on this awhile back. I watched it for an hour. Can't beleive some of the stunts they do. After some checking, it is all BS. The Amish are hard working people, and they don't need all of Hollywood and reality TV mocking them.

    I lived among the Amish in N. Indiana & central PA. These idiots on this "reality show" in no way resemble the Amish youth they are supposed to portray. It is just more pablum being fed to us by the media, ie what used to be considered non acceptable behavior now being the "Norm"

    Attached link above is from Lancaster City Police decrying the show as fiction. Apparently the show cast the local LEO's in bad light.

    One "star of the show" is supposed to be a professional actor. As with 99 percent of these "reality" shows are scripted and staged for Obama voters.

    Usually at the end of a show, it is required a disclaimer about, "all characters in the show are fictional and any similarity to anyone is a coincidence" which they put in the end credits to avoid lawsuits.

    Look for such a disclaimer at the end of such shows. Sometimes you might have to freeze the DVR to see it, because they flash it for a mere second.

    It must be a joke (but I don't get it). Some folks will watch anything.
