Would you buy a Taliban-made car?
I see bumper stickers, banners, and print in the social media to support out troops. Then when you drive down the road, you see license plates for a retired veteran, ex-POW, ex-military, driving a Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Nissan or BMW.
Have we forgotten about the 416,000 men and women in the military who lost their lives in WWII, not counting the millions that were killed by Germany, but yet we still support their economy?
I know, you say that they are built in the USA, but all the profits go to their economy.
Yes, I buy things made in Japan and China. But when the item next to it is made in the USA, I buy it and don’t look at the price.
I just hope that the Taliban doesn’t start selling cars in 60 years. If they do, will your grandchildren buy them and think nothing of it?
Mast-Hensler barn outlasting them all
The large barn on the Larry Hensler farm, 2 miles west of Plevna, is 150 years old this year. It was built in 1863, when this country’s Civil War was raging. Who knows, they may have been working on it when the battle of Gettysburg was being fought in the east.
The barn was built by Amish pioneer Moses “Mose” Mast, who came to this area in 1853 from Holmes County, Ohio, along with fellow pioneer Christian Hershberger. Built in the Pennsylvania Dutch-style Mose Mast was familiar with back in Ohio, it is a “bank” barn.
In the rolling hills of Holmes County, barns could be placed against the side of a grade, with the basement level for the stock. Over this, the threshing floor and hay mow area was built, so that the farmer could bring equipment right up into the main level.
