  3. Article 14, section 1, US Constitution, " . . . nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." If the US has captured them, they are under US jurisdiction and according to the Constitution, are given, " . . . equal protection of the laws."
  4. Thailand is not subject to the Constitution of the United States.
  5. I thought His Thainess was in London recently to personally arrest the Shins. Now it turns out he's in the bouillabaisse in Paris.
  6. A lot to do with the fact that Thailand wants OTA's to be paying tax. Sent from my SM-G925F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. For once i agree with him and so should we do in Europe every one that disagrees no problem get a lawyer and pay him ur self...
  8. "cost from 2000 to 5000 depending on the quality and specs of lenses. Can you tell me if you have found cheaper or if prices are similar everywhere ? This is so expensive for Thailand." Have a look at Isoptik in BKK, they have a plan for 1 million THB.

    By chance, do you drive one these in either white or light gray colour scheme?
  10. Easyt you just need to make sure everthing is sterilized, keep The temparatur stabile, and get the right raw materials. Maybe take you some few years to finely get a good product, and spending 100´s of hours and several 10 000´s on equipment, study trips to wineries and so on, but its fun. We started out in my buddies basement when we where 16, and those we failed, we burnt. We where quite popular in the parties, bringing 20 liters bulks for everyone to taste. Today, here in Thailand I would not bother making wine, to difficult to keep stabile inviroment for the juice. But good luck
  11. In theory it should be dropped off in the morning and collected in the pm or at worst the next day. The Chinese granny has been advised that she can pick up her endorsed passport today, no idea what went wrong, just one of those weird anomalies that happen occasionally.
  12. lol - well, it didn't take long for Hitler to get a mention. http://trac.syr.edu/phptools/immigration/court_backlog/ There's a backlog of over 700,000 immigration court cases waiting to be heard. If you consider the cost to the taxpayer of hearing all these cases - it's billions of dollars. The backlog is growing. It's pretty obvious there needs to be a solution - that it can't go on and shortcutting the process is quite reasonable. If that is not an acceptable solution to the issue, then perhaps people can offer theirs... taking down the borders and letting everyone in is one option. I am not a big fan of that. so - if there's to be some degree of control over who lives in the country, then the rules need to be laid out. As it is, the rules are made ineffective by catch and release. So there seems to be a game being played to make it look like there is control but at the same time it's been made 100% ineffective. So if you get in, you can stay. If that's what one side wants, why not simply campaign on that platform? If people want some degree of control and to really discourage people coming in illegally, then there needs to be an efficient, cost effective way to discourage people from trying. Nobody is Hitler, this isn't a race issue. It's a massive problem with few people giving solutions and LOTs of people acting irrationally.

    Pronunciation of ง when it is a final consonant

    No, I was hoping someone else might be. If you go to www.thai-language.com though, there are clips of native speakers saying various words and if you compare the two words I mentioned you may hear a difference. I have only heard the -mg version at the end of a syllable - when ง is in initial position it always sounds like ng- to me. Yes, that's always a possibility to take into account - but I think it's rare for this to cause you to hear two sounds as different if they are the same. It does happen sometimes - for example Thais sometimes hear my English d sound as ด and sometimes as ต, but that's because it is between the two. I think your suggestion would be very plausible if English had both -mg and -ng, and ง was between the two, but that's not really the case. I can make the sound -mg without any difficulty, but it is hard to think of words that use it - it's not part of the basic inventory of English sounds. Mostly, I think interference works the other way around. For example, someone might be oblivious to the difference between พ and ป because both of them register as p. This stems from the fact that we register phonemes rather than sounds - the difference is quite well explained on Wikipedia: A phoneme is a sound or a group of different sounds perceived to have the same function by speakers of the language or dialect in question. An example is the English phoneme /k/, which occurs in words such as cat, kit, scat, skit. Although most native speakers do not notice this, in most English dialects the "c/k" sounds in these words are not identical: in kit (help·info) [kʰɪt] the sound is aspirated, while in skill (help·info) [skɪl] it is unaspirated. The words therefore contain different speech sounds, or phones, transcribed [kʰ] for the aspirated form, [k] for the unaspirated one. These different sounds are nonetheless considered to belong to the same phoneme, because if a speaker used one instead of the other, the meaning of the word would not change: using the aspirated form [kʰ] in skill might sound odd, but the word would still be recognized. In other words there's nothing unusual about a single phoneme mapping to more than one sound, but when it does, this does not mean you can use those sounds interchangeably. With this in mind it's quite possible that the phoneme ง does and is supposed to have different sounds in different words... but the fact that it is possible doesn't make it so, which is why I was wondering whether anyone else heard a difference. For the record, my first language is English and I am originally from the Oxford area.
  14. This is a Thai forum mostly about Thailand,the woman was killed by her Thai Ex. I have freedom of speech to comment on this post,maybe just for you ThaiVisa should stop posting negative ?,but true articles about what is happening here in Thailand on a daily basis. I am not naive enough not to know the same kind of things are happening all around the World,especially South Asia with the throwing of acid at women.Etc etc. no anger from me just making comments ,like them are not. regards worgeordie
  15. The US already has laws that allow them to turn back people at the port of entry without seeing a judge. Either Trump is suggesting laws that already exist are needed (he may not know they exist) which is bizarre or he is talking about people who have already got into the country illegally. If you are caght in Thailand illegally you will be arrested and will appear before a judge.
  16. Without a steady tenant flow no more condo sales either.. if Airbnb works abroad then why not here...
  17. Where did you copy this from?

    THE England thread

    Much intrigue Ronnie, as both of them would like to avoid a tough opening game in the knockout stage. Its better to be second in their group than first. Martinez has already indicated he'll be starting a "B" team.

    Charging outlets at Thai airports

    I always travel with a power pack on international and domestic flights; under the current legislation power packs " CAN NOT " be in your checked in aircraft hold luggage but are permitted in carry on / hand luggage . . . . There is also a maximum power pack battery size as mine had been checked many times on flights but I can't remember what it is.
  20. Looks like she wasn't sure she know who she was getting involved with and he's not even 'dark skinned', or maybe that doesn't count when it comes to Thais killing Thais...What say ye now Colonel?
  21. New starter solenoid is 120 thb. Starter brushes cost 30 thb. Should not take more time than 2 hours to repair. 240 thb. Total ~ 400 thb. So at 1800 thb you will have been charged the Farang price... Compare this to Holland the above is very cheap still: New starter solenoid costs € 36. Starter brushes replace not possible in Holland (due to guarantee), they will use a new Starter of around € 400. 2 hours to repair. € 120 each hour on a Sunday, so € 240 Total ex TAX. € 676. Had my d-max serviced (each 7500 km) at Isuzu 2 months ago. Oil and filters change, total checkup, rear brake shoes replaced, front wheelbearings regreased and adjusted. Sorry, but for 4800 thb total, I am not getting myself wet... I am happy to live in Thailand, and I still do some repairs myself, just of the fun of it.
  22. As an experienced caver (potholer) in my young days I am counting on them being OK if the leader has a sensible head & did not panic making them stay on high ground until the waters recede. Been in this position many times. The fear underground is even a small tremor leading to earth movement in particular where swollen rivers can become waterfalls in a matter of minutes
  23. kin comical, like most dont give a sh...........
  24. Article 14 section 1 US Constitution, " . . . nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Any person.
