  1. Not worth buying land if I still have to do 90 day reports and do an extension of stay every year. They could deny it any time. So, where does that leave me? Sure I own the land, but I have to leave. Also, if and when an elected government comes to power. They could also cancel any laws created by the unelected Junta.
  2. Some people just amaze me with their fantasies.
  3. Yes those images were true. But WW1 was not fought because of religion. It was because the Kaiser, Wilhelm II sought to control Europe. Same situation with Hitler in WW2. We didn't fight the Japanese because they were Buddhist. But, the Muslim are fighting the Jews, just because they are Jewish. They are also attacking the rest of the world be we are not Muslim and don't hold any alliance to Islam. Hope this clarifies what I was trying to say. If not, I am sorry. I guess we will just have to agree to disagree.
  4. I don't think you quite understood what I was saying. First , you are correct about the crusades. I concur. But, that was not something preached in churches to go out and kill someone. While it was religious persecution, it was also because Islam took over Jerusalem. The first of the Crusades began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land. After the First Crusade achieved its goal with the capture of Jerusalem in 1099, the invading Christians set up several Latin Christian states, even as Muslims in the region vowed to wage holy war (jihad) to regain control over the region What I was saying is. If let's say a Christian church service or Jewish Temple or Buddhist for that matter. The people are not being told to go out and kill someone of another faith. But in mosque, at least in the U.S. it is being preached.
  5. I know of no other religion that expressly tells someone to go out and kill someone because they are not of our faith. If you do. Please elaborate.
  6. If you study history, you will see it dates back to 1928 with the start of the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact it started in the year 610 AD. Not many bombs were dropped then.
  7. People, it is time to stop living in denial. Islam is not a religion of peace. If my religion told me to kill my fellow human being, I think I would look for a new religion.
  8. I hope he realizes that if he decides to buy " big boy toys". He will have to be willing to play with the big boys. More was machinery means more eyes on you from everyone else.
  9. I agree. I think all U.S. troops and equipment should be withdrawn from Europe and all Nato Pact countries. It is time to bring it all back home.
  10. That's funny, because I am still here and so are many of my friends.
  11. I am not saying you are not right. I have my permanent plate now. But, I personally have never seen a MC with a red plate.
  12. You should have been around 71,72,73,74,75,76. Government never messed with Farangs. The BIB wouldn't even talk to you if they could avoid it. Immigration was way easy. Things were a lot less expensive. Of course there wasn't anything to buy except Thai stuff. There were thousands of Americans all over the country. The best jobs for Thai's was working on the military bases. Life was good...............
  13. Bought a new bike. No plate for weeks. Legal to drive without one with paperwork from the dealer. I have never seen a red plate on a MC.
