  1. I heard reports back when Taksin was the main 'ringleader' that he had tight connections with the 'right' people in offices that control (or oversaw) the rise and fall of the Baht and that he would trade currencies at the proper times to make money for his own pocket each time the Baht went up and peaked and when it went down to the bottom............ Not surprising if the present regime has learned a bit from him and doing the same............
  2. Young addict,,,,,,,,, Kills dad...... Police shoot him,,,,,,,, Not much waste as I see it................. Only one afterthought....... It may have been better to let him 'Rot away' in an overcrowded and sweaty 'Thai Prison' to give him more time to think about his 'miserable life'................
  3. Good thing they didn't also write down her middle name. She must have quite a 'busy' Picture Page in her passport........... LOL.......... Edited to add....... Not really much longer than many Thai names, now i think about it.....
  4. People like that guy deserve to 'Rot slowly' In Hell............... There really are people like this......... we do get to see them sometimes..........
  5. Acrimonious Divorce

    And not just limited to Thai women........... Just ask 'Trumps' wife...................... Farangs have money (supposedly) and money is 'security' and 'opportunity' and 'comfort', and the alternative is.... Thai men..... What would any woman with much sense choose???? Edited to add..... Certainly there are 'good Thai men' I'm just speaking on average.....
  6. Hey! I am with the army! Now back-off! Edited 2 hours ago by kcpattaya Are you for real? Or joking?
  7. Acrimonious Divorce

    Lots of guys say here that they lost their land and house here there was no 50/50 split do u want to claim that they are lying? u story seems the odd one out. Many of these guys are probably tell it 'as it was'....... Each of them may have won or lost as they say they did......... It is 'Important' to remember that each person's outcome will be different and can seriously affected by 'Luck'... 'Timing'... 'Many outside influences'..... But 'MAINLY'.... by the amount of 'personal effort' put into it, and the 'personal attitude' of the person suing....... If you think you can do it - you probably can..... vs..... if you think you can't win, you probably won't....... Etc..... Defeated attitudes usually lose....... LOL...... Those who don't want to work hard at something, usually 'lose' with them...... LOL..... THEN...... after losing they can't understand why!!!!!! LOL...... As is life there are some 'impossible' tasks, BUT many are only thought to be 'impossible' My Humble Opinion............... cheers

    Same old story.............. Sometimes they are what you make of them........... There is '2-sides of the coin'..... when you want to make an educated opinion you need to hear both sides of the story (as the Judge does).... Nobody is ever the bad one when you hear only their side of the story......... In Thailand (and elsewhere) there are 'greedy wenches'.......... But there are many decent ones who can overlook age differences, and be wonderful caretakers........ SO.... OFTEN.... They are what YOU made them to be......... This needs to be considered also in the OP, although we are responding to the OP with only his side of the story, and our replies address only that......... BUT????? I've have a bit of experience to voice with..... I have had 4 wives.... 2 farang, 2 Thai....... Presently I have a very satisfied Thai wife (for 21 years) in the USA... I treat her well and she treats me well...... Presently I also have a Mia-Noi in Pattaya for the same 21 years...... 21 years ago little would i believe that both of them would endure me, after the first 3 wives I learned a 'little'..... Most of the wives (excluding #3 who was a Thai 'Patpong' bar girl) were all 'good women'...... I was the 'weak link' but I learned and now am keeping 2 of them content for 21 years..... These 2 are fabulous Thai women....... If there is ever a problem it will be my fault.......... With OVER 30 years experience in Thailand, (I have been back and forth almost monthly) and having Expat friends over all those years, I have witnessed many GOOD and BAD Farang/Thai relationships work or fail, and I must say that it has been a 50/50 blame............ Every case is an 'Individual' case and you can't be sure till you hear both sides of the story........... I have had 21 wonderful years with 2 'wonderful' Thai women......... If it ends it will be 'MY Fault'.... Not their's............

    Perhaps you were mistaking about them being the best law firm in Issan......... Did you get a 'second opinion'? and third and fourth????
  10. Acrimonious Divorce

    Rest in Peace........... And stay in your house and make her life miserable............ and Hire a 'body guard' to stay with you............... Make her want you 'OUT'.......... and make her become 'negotiable'........... Keep looking for a lawyer and make it clear to him that you will keep looking for a lawyer until you find the one that is 'right'...............
  11. You say........ "The problem isn't in the U.S., it's in the middle East." I say:...... It 'IS' in the US......... only not as bad as some parts of Europe, The Philippines, South of Thailand and many other places....... And they could be much worse 'Slave-drivers' than the confederates..... I hate Trump but I am with him on that one issue....................
  12. Agreed............. But there is a 'fine line' between 'illegal' and 'banned'............ I edited my post to change that wording...............
  13. GOOGLE IT........................ Places Where the Confederate Flag Is Banned - Esquire www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a35912/confederate-flag-banned/ Jun 23, 2015 - Slowly but surely, the Confederate flag is disappearing from the United States of America. Even the prominent U.S. flag-maker, Valley Forge ...
  14. Supposedly 'slavery was abolished' years ago, in the US, as well as being abolished in Thailand by King Rama 5th.......... At least in the form it was at that time.......... My late brother had a thought that 'slavery' isn't really gone, It has only changed it's shape and it's subjects........ Consider this........ Many modern day citizen are 'slaves'...... Owned and driven by their 'banks and credit'...... I see it often in Thailand (and so many countries) where 'wives' (focusing on Thai men at the moment) are the subjects of slavery...... If they don't perform as the husband requires, they often are beaten (or worse)... Consider 'muslim women' who are in many ways treated as 'slaves'..... They are forced to do so many things that they might not personally choose to do........ (from head scarves to not going out alone, or driving a car, etc)..... As much as i 'personally' HATE Trump, he in one way may be doing most 'Americans' a favor by ending the muslim slavery in our country.......... (by limiting their 'influence' and existence in the US)............ I have a theory that there 'Just ain't no 10's'....... Likewise there 'Just ain't no 0's'......... We all know where Trump fits in........... AND another thought ........ Why was the 'Confederate Flag' banned but the 'Pirate Flag' is still readily available......... Edited to change the word outlawed to banned.
  15. I think many Thai women who work 'massage' in their home country very closely relate 'sex' with 'massage' and are somewhat prepared for it......... However being held prisoner in a foreign land is a whole new ballgame.......... as well as multiple customers daily..........
