  1. My Thai Wife in the US has a son who turned legal age about 10 years ago.. We were living in the US and she had a sister who had friends in the local Aumpur and she arranged to pay 10 or 20 Thousand Baht and the official had his record altered as if he had appeared and been exempted. It cost but it worked........ TIT....... Doubt it will ever change (TIT)
  2. Now lets ask the 'good' Army General Prime Minister if there is any new laws he has just passed to prevent the Public from filming/videoing in public places as long as everybody have clothes on............. LOL..........
  3. SAME, SAME....... AS THEY SAY IN tHAILAND............. without his direction it probably would not have happened............ Hang him HIGHEST..............
  4. Yes...... With their own agenda to fill their own pockets and have a 'Big Face' (to get more contributions) at the same time........ Similar to what we who live in Thailand are already accustomed to......... LOL..........
  5. Wow.......... Do I ever agree with all but mainly the last line..... Over here (Thailand with the Police here in Thailand, and mind you I have 2 Police, in Korat, in my wife's family)..... In Thailand it is just "PAY AND GO" as it has been for so many years.... Darksidedog.... I live in Pattaya on the darkside (eastside) also near Wat Boonsampan (Soi Khao Noi)...... I will send a PM to you...... we may be neighbors......... Maybe can meet up.........
  6. I have not seen a Spanish BIBLE but it is very possible that the 'Spanish' refer ot translate LUKE as LUCAS............
  7. 8 hours ago, rainwater said: Why are you trying to tell people what they should believe The facts are: You are guilty when you are guilt.................. BUT........... when you are found guilty (by a court) then you can be imprisoned and punished by the law.... CORRECT ME if I am WRONG............ But before you do correct me, re-read my comment a few times till you understand it............Then try to correct me IF you still want to..............
  8. You are comparing two different 'Immune systems".... Your Immune system is stronger than hers..... Vitamin C is a natural booster of the human Immune system.... get her some....... take daily.......
  9. Use that Bangkok Bank chart and then add 30 satang to it if you have any money changers like we have in Pattaya........ Today that chart says 33.97 THB for a dollar. Today I changed 800 USD and got 34.27 THB....at a Yellow and Black colored Money Changer which is called 'T & T'...... I see about 20 or 30 of them on the sidewalks all over Pattaya..... If you actually will change dollars to THB then it will be worth looking around and find a money changer other than banks........ If the money comes to Bangkok Bank by Money transfer you may get a much better exch rate..... Ask the bank...... And learn to use that Bangkok Bank chart...... The best rate for changing cash is the left hand column... There are 5 different columns and the fourth column going to the right side is called TT Rate and usually about 30 satang higher than changing cash..... that is likely how much the bank will give you for wire transfers on the day the transfer arrives......... Additional Note...... I use a Credit card at Big C, Tesco, PTT Gas Stations and any Restraunts that take it. Because the credit cards will give me the TT (higher rate).... But CAUTION--- Many credit cards charge you a 3% Foreign Transaction Fee and I have several that don't
  10. What is with this Present government????....... Those people aren't criminals or 'reckless drivers'..... They are trying to make a living the only way they know, and they are "working''.... LEAVE THEM ALONE..... Try to find something 'Positive' (Good) to do..... This is not the answer to Thailand's Problems....... Giving your people a better education so they can qualify for jobs with all the foreign investors you are wanting to come here....... Until you educate enough people to get better jobs, leave these sellers alone........ My wife's family sold Bar-b-Q Pork an the streets for years. They had 5 or 6 locations in the family and were able to put 2 daughters and a son thru University and those kids all have decent jobs..... Those 3 kids were the first ever in the history of their family. The Present Junta cleared them off the sidewalks in the past year and now they are all back in their village eating 'basic rice and fish sauce' without the pork and chicken they could afford before....... And you have to realize that there was a 'demand' for their service and product...... Now the BMA together with the present gov't. wants to add more misery to the Poor Folks. I think because they are no longer poor folks as they are 'Very Gainfully Employed' by the gov't. and look down on the poor folks since they feel now they are so far above them...... This is even worse than the Thailand I KNEW 30 odd years ago.... These are 'Poor People' who want to work....... Not 'poor people' as we have in the USA who only want more easy living and 'welfare checks' so they can can watch big TV's on soft Sofa's without working...... I 'personally' ADMIRE people who will WORK....... Give-em a break BMA
  11. Yup...... The USA isn't the only place "Big -Business" Only thinks about the 'Almighty Dollar".......... Could there be a bit of it here in Thailand?????????? I Wonder.......... LOL .....
  12. I am a 2.4 Million Mile Flyer with UNITED....... Since 1999 I'v done over 100,000 miles a year, Mostly USA to Thailand almost monthly......... I have been 'Onboard' a lot and I have seen UNITED steadily going down into this 'Cesspool' they have made for themselves. Now I must say that they are near the bottom of their "personal Cesspool" and I can only smile......... They are a 'perfect' example of "Big Business" in the USA, Thinking not of customers but the "Almighty Dollar"............. The Millions of Dollars they have to pay to settle this won't hurt them but I Personally Hope, that it will take a bit of the 'smirk' off their face....... It has put a bit of a 'smirk' on my face and it should do the same for the 'Doctor' soon........... RIP...... UNITED (I've been with you "TOO LONG") "FRIENDLY SKIES" ....................... B. S. ..........
  13. 'Wanna-be's' Coppers...............
  14. I might suggest thinking for yourself........ and not 'follow the leader' . but up to you (as Thai girls say)....
  15. And are we going to believe that, Coming from Assad's Russian buddies...............
