    After a new DSLR in Bangkok

    I think you meant to say A9 because the A7 series are APS-C. The fullsize Sony FF are A99 and A99ii.

    Citeria for Thai Driving License

    To drive in Thailand you need to possess either a Thai drivers license or an international drivers license(IDL). IDL can only be used for the first year.

    Remove stains from shirt armpits

    Spray the affected area with vinegar, sprinkle baking soda over the same area and then use a brush to scrub the spot Wash and then enjoy your spotless shirt.
  4. That is just greed at its best from two parties. A 60% tariff is plain silly so it consequently forces HD to bump the price in order to maintain its profit margin. Normal business logic: buy low and sell high to maximize your profits!
  5. I have a Japanese Strat and a '77 Strat. I love them both equally but it is almost impossible to compare them. The '77 sounds so much smoother when playing Blues but the Japanese Strat rips when playing classic rock. However, both are modified and Pleked... lol. Domestic marking production is a more profitable solution but with the Union tensions and the fear of losing investors, HD probably caused a [email protected] for themselves with the US market. HD roadrash creators will be more affordable for people (Thai citizens in Thailand) who love to kill themselves with motor vehicles.
  6. You really could have googled this yourself. http://fortune.com/2018/01/30/harley-davidson-to-lay-off-workers-again-as-motorcycle-shipments-slump/ https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/05/11/harley-davidson-jobs-reportedly-being-shipped-to-thailand "Machinist Richard Pence, who has the highest seniority in the Kansas City plant and has worked there since its inception, said, “Part of my job is being moved to York, but the other part is going to Bangkok." https://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/25/harley-davidson-plans-thailand-factory-to-serve-southeast-asian-market.html "After the New York Times reported on Harley's planned Thai investment, United Steelworkers (USW) International President Leo W. Gerard on Tuesday said the decision was "a slap in the face to the American worker and to hundreds of thousands of Harley riders across the country." HD has been trying to get away from USW union for YEARS! The benefit of building bikes in Thailand is the 60% tariff will be skirted but at the cost of killing jobs in the US. HD started laying off longtime employees shortly after being praised by DDD. We all know will find a new way to recoup its tea money. https://thinkprogress.org/harley-davidson-close-kansas-city-plant-thailand-ee60d555d762/ "Union members, however, claim at least part of their work will be outsourced to Thailand. " http://laborpress.org/harley-davidson-builds-plant-in-thailand-with-trumps-bonus-money/ International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers president Bob Martinez Jr. said “These companies are taking tax breaks with one hand and handing out pink slips with the other. I’m going to call it like I see it…this is a corporate ambush on working people.” Companies have been doing this for years. HD just chose extremely bad timing...... lol
  7. There are many articles pertaining to the closing of the KC plant and the shift to more production in Thailand. HD chose to move offshore because they can make more profit with non-union labor and at offshore sites with a exponentially lower minimum wage.
  8. Actually, Thailand will be picking up the production of parts that were built in the closed KC plant. HD wants to use lower non-union labor and they only way to do this is to go offshore. https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/article197340544.html http://thehill.com/homenews/news/387120-harley-davidson-to-open-plant-in-thailand-after-closing-one-in-kansas-city
  9. That's because he has be stifled by the orange glow of putrid bull malarky .... lol
  10. DDD = Draft Dodging Donnie The upticks/growths in the economy and job markets started well before DDD took office. Where is that wall that he promised? What has he done for the working class? I thought he was supposed to drain the swamp but it looks more like he is polluting it with automatons who are "blinded by the light". What about the empty promises that he made to the coal industry? The coal industry is DEAD and will not get revived so those people in the Appalachians need to get accustomed to that notion. If they need a job there are lots positions that were formerly held by migrants and illegals. Where is that awesome health care reform that Donald the great Orator (that was joke) promised? What happened to spending time in the Oval Office instead of romping on a golf course every other day? Barry the Hawaiian (via Afrika according to DDD) didn't spend this much time on the greens during his entire two terms. DDD has spent more time at his resorts than he has at the White House Undoing things that were approved/performed by the previous administration is not progress. Unfortunately, US industries rely heavily on migrant workers of both the legal and illegal variety. There are more than a few farms that have lost quite a bit of their harvest because the product never made it to the market/stores. Why did this happen? Normal Murican citizens are not going to do those jobs so prepare for the price hicks in the near future. Why would you bust your bottom for 10~12 hours in a hot field for low wages when you can make $15/hr flipping burgers or serving sugar disguised as coffee in a AC cooled hangout. In the NE, the seafood industry has been hit hard by the lack of migrant workers. A couple crab meat canneries are actually closing permanently and the Oyster industry is also suffering. Those migrant who normally chose the legal route and got work permits are now at home waiting for their number to show up in the queue at immigration. Yes, something needs to be done about the flow of narcotics to the US. Simple solution, make the 3-letter agencies that used the narcotics "industry" to fund their activities clean up the mess that they caused. Oh yeah, what about DDD and some of his flunkies using (abusing is a better word) the Office of the President of the Un-united States of Murica to turn a profit for his businesses? Most large cities do not want DDD to visit because of the huge disruptions that are caused by his (or any other POTUS) presence. A lot of valuable taxpayer funds are wasted on providing security at Trump towers and other Trump properties. The Secret Service is supplemented with local police forces. NYC is actually tired of wasting valuable man hours to protect this reality star so they requested to be reimbursed for $35million that was wasted to secure Trump towers. It costs anywhere from $120,00 to $360,00 per day to secure Trump towers when the first family is there. Wasted money!! DDD will ride the publicity train until he gets Nixoned and the hardworking middle and lower class will suffer the most. The bottom line is this twit of a president needs to stop acting a like spoiled brat and start being presidential. At the moment he is not better than his good buddies Pootin (misspelled on purpose), Duerte the terrible, and Kim the magnificent glutton. There are plenty of solutions out there to mitigate the issues at hand BUT politics impedes the implementation of these solutions because too many knuckleheads would rather tow the party line than work together to solve issues/problems. DDD has proven that the office of the POTUS cannot be run a like a corporation so stop trying to bankrupt the nation of IMMIGRANTS!!
  11. DDD's comments mean absolutely NOTHING. His products are still made outside of the US.
