  1. Escape from North Korea: video shows defector under fire

    I don't see a reference to that park being jointly managed. it's next to a park in China.
  2. Is SCB in trouble?

    Naam knows more about international investing than pretty much all of us here. I wish I knew 10% of what he knows! And I've got a masters in finance. LOL
  3. Religious intolerance is unacceptable. These people have been in Myanmar for hundreds of years. Better to have the Buddhists show compassion rather than violence.
  4. If you are stopped by traffic police @ Pattaya

    There are definitely good cops in Thailand. Sadly, they are outnumbered by the corrupt ones. Receipts mean nothing. Receipt books are easily available.
  5. Escape from North Korea: video shows defector under fire

    Pakistan and India? Seriously? LOL
  6. You've got to be kidding me. Incredible.
  7. You are always welcome to my home and I will make sure you have whatever your favorite libation is on hand! Conversations with you are always welcome. But seriously, there's a few hundred of us trying to figure out how to tour Saudi Arabia. A tour was offered recently, but it was 5k for 5 days! Not including airfare! I'll call when I'm back in town in a few weeks. Say hi to your lovely wife. Please. And Tee!
  8. Plan to cede police powers to agencies

    Hard to be more corrupt than the customs department is now. Impossible! LOL
  9. I'm part of a private travel group who focuses on more remote and difficult places to visit. Many are travel agents, writers and some of the top travel bloggers. According to them, it's on for next year. The only questions now are how open will it be. Guides will be required. No independent travel. But it's on. Some are already working on itineraries. I hope to join one once the date and prices are set.
  10. Agreed. Just get rid of him. The world would be a better place.
  11. Escape from North Korea: video shows defector under fire

    And yet, no outrage at this armistice violation. Can you imagine the howling here if that was done by the US? LOL Also, he has hepatitis B. Apparently that is not uncommon. Unhygiene medical practices. And no medicine. The people there deserve better.
  12. Agreed. And yet, some are still supporting him. Aggressively. As seen by posts here. With these supporters being either hard core republicans or "conservatives". Whatever that means. LOL It shows how far people are divided. With many moving into the extreme right or left and only following media sites that support their side. No quarter is given.
  13. Plan to cede police powers to agencies

    It will make corruption much more difficult. Instead of a single agency responsible for enforcing pretty much every law in the Kingdom, a very powerful one with 230,000 people, numerous agencies will now be responsible. There will now have to be collusion between multiple agencies. I do believe it was Thaksin who moved the police from the Ministry of the Interior to the office of the Prime minister. Thus creating his own private army. This has been one of the biggest problems over the years. Use of the police to help in politics.
  14. Plan to cede police powers to agencies

    The police aren't running the country.
  15. If you are stopped by traffic police @ Pattaya

    Just because you get a receipt means it's proper? Easy to write out a receipt. Just means the guys higher up get more of the take to put in their pockets. LOL. They've got to recover the big money they paid for their positions.
