  1. Sounds like you are also describing the daily Thailand badgers on TV. Maybe we are all related. Hope not
  2. A future Thailand prime minister following advice of TV posters.
  3. Father publicly disowns alt-right son after Charlottesville violence

    Umm. You state that I am not in a position to criticize the father but you are in the position to criticize me. Think about that. Why are you in such a better and approved position to criticize but others in your mind are not? Just a thought.
  4. Father publicly disowns alt-right son after Charlottesville violence

    Disowning a son and telling the world he is not welcome in his fathers home is abuse and causes more harm than good. What ever happened to the qualities of disagreement but teachings of love and kindness and forgiveness and setting a good example. This father in my opinion lacks all these qualities and I feel sadness for the entire family. The father is the opposite of what a dad should do and is destructive to his entire family not just his son. Sad
  5. Father publicly disowns alt-right son after Charlottesville violence

    I love my son no matter what he does. I don't have to approve his actions but as a father nothing nothing nothing my son can do would ever cause me to not love him and support him and welcome him into my home. I don't agree with this young man and his views but shame on his father who should know better and be an example of love, hope and forgiveness to his son and family. Peace
  6. If the law allows being locked up for negligence (except manslaughter) then we would all be locked up. No one would be free as no perfect man exists -----especially in elected government. If you want to get angry I suggest get angry at those that seize power by force or those priests that rape young boys or those military men that captured businessmen for ransom or those cops that abuse their uniforms or those that imprison young citizens from Khon Kaen or Hong Kong for speaking the truth. Peace
  7. 10-Year Visas Now Available: Thai Immigration

    3000 USA dollars a month or 90000 usa dollars in savings. Given the amount of money inflow to Thailand from foreign hedge funds Thailand banks are secure as their dollar and euro reserves are more than anyone but China and Japan in Asia. I will get the 10 year visa. Makes sense for me but understand those that prefer the yearly extensions. The bitchers and moaners probably don't qualify for any of the visas and sorry for you but this is a good deal for those that qualify. And the 90 day stamp in the mail is so overblown by the bitchers that they are comical. If you can't buy a stamp every 90 days then get a life.
  8. 10-Year Visas Now Available: Thai Immigration

    No place is the same as it use for be. It is called history and age and not unique to you or me. Read some letters from the 1500s and 1600s and 1700s and you will see your same unique gripes complained about hundreds of years ago. Just enjoy your life and quit bitching. Bitching does you and me and no one any good. We have it better than 95 percent of all people on the planet. More choices today to live than anywhere on the planet. If you think Thailand has changed and you don't like it then 195 countries left for you to explore. Have fun and spread some cheer.

    Yes you have to buy a postage stamp every 90 days. How can we all bare that huge expense and time consuming responsibility? Damn this place is tough to live in. Please tell all the people in the two hour ques at both airports.
  10. 10-Year Visas Now Available: Thai Immigration

    There are 196 countries in the world. Surely one will not treat you like crap. Please go find that country and live a better life for yourself and the rest of us. Peace
  11. 10-Year Visas Now Available: Thai Immigration

    It requires about 90,000 USA dollars in savings or job or pension that pays 3,000 USA dollars a month. Not too much to ask IMO for 10 year visa or 5 plus 5 if you want to be critical. I will apply in November and not have to screw with CW for yearly renewals. Does anyone know if Americans can use the embassy income verification letter for this visa? To the poster that stated Thailand treats him like "crap" my question is why allow any place to treat you like "crap?" 800 flights a day leave Swampy for other places that are more suitable to treating you the way you deserve to be treated. Choose one and be happy. Take care.
  12. This is not meant as an attack on you but I am responding to the commentaries about hookers. Why do people berate hookers or others? Jesus washed the feet of a prostitute. He has not washed my feet. Many prostitutes have given a lot of men great pleasure. Some are great people and wives and some are terrible people and wives just like people with tourist or retirement visas. Will probably never understand how humans rationalize they are better than others based on employment or wealth or citizenship or sexual preference or education or home size or car or ...... But if given the opportunity to spend my last five minutes on earth with whoever I choose I would choose a Thai hooker and go to the afterlife with a thankful smile on my face. The absolute last person on earth I would want to spend my last five minutes with is a serial TV Thai critic who knows he is better and brighter and holy than others.
  13. Cigna Global is a British company and I am American and for some reason they did not ask me the same as you. Only surgeries in the past and current treatment for prexisting conditions. Paper work was simple and easy. And I am covered in almost every country in the world. What I like about Cigna Global is insurance companies have the reputation for denying claims and I can sue them in the USA or England if that occurs and get a lawyer on a contingency fee. In the USA I can sue for treble damages in some states because Cigna Global is not protected by America's strict ERISA laws for employer purchased insurance products. Does not mean I want to sue or will recover treble damages but at least I have some leverage if they deny my claim. And I get a jury trial in USA.
  14. Like your photos but I saw the two most beautiful structures in Khon Kaen at Tawandang and a few more at Thom Tom. University city with the most beautiful Thai lady structures in Thailand.
