  1. bye bye STICKMAN

    Yes that must be it.Otherwise I am sure I would better appreciate your special choice of these two slender upmarket beauties with that distinctive touch of class.
  2. In an insane asylum no doubt some inmates could say most people they know are radishes.Your opinion that most Thais approve of the Junta doesn't reflect the perception of anyone I know, but let that pass.Even the most obtuse and blinkered are entitled to hold an opinion however fatuous.The only opinion that really matters however is that registered by the Thai people in a free democratic election held under a constitutional framework that is not rigged. Where you are stonkingly wrong is your suggestion that genuine inroads have been made on corruption.There have been a few high profile cases where the motivation for cracking down was political.We can't discuss the details.But otherwise the trough has been open for business.Ask any highly placed Thai.At a corporate level the position is worse than ever and nothing has changed in the traditional military buffet.

  3. I spotted four outright lies as well as other attempts to mislead in this post.Can anyone improve on that tally? Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. Ever considered that your product might have been unappealing and uncompetitive and perhaps badly thought through? It is not the responsibility of the KK admin to convince people to move anywhere.It's a market and you couldn't compete.Learn from it. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. The same question could have been posed by a foreigner in Berlin in the late 1930's.What do we know of the strategic plans of the fascist leadership? We are being protected and the left wing riffraff and socialist mobs are no longer clogging up the streets.It's not our country and we should be grateful to the Fuhrer as falling under his protection. You might say the comparison to Nazi Germany is unfair.I completely agree.The transfer of power to National Socialism was undertaken in the context of the existing constitutional framework.In Thailand it was illegally seized by force of arms. Actually I don't think many foreigners in Germany had that disgusting attitude.But in every country where repression is pitted against democracy, you will always find a small quisling element.In the end of course these people find they have made the wrong bet.
  6. Credit cards on apple website

    Thanks.Weird isn't it? One would have thought if the sale was authorised by the overseas company (and presumably backed by Visa/Mastercard), it would be of no interest to Apple where the credit card originated.
  7. Credit cards on apple website

    I'm not sure I understand.The Apple guy says you can't use your Canadian credit card and that one has to have a valid payment method and billing address within the country of residence.If however you had your Thai address designated as your billing address by the Canadian credit card, would that solve the problem? Or would there still be an obstacle that the "valid payment method" - not really clear what this means - wasn't in Thailand
  8. And in your view is fighting against fascism, racial supremacy and anti semitism politically incorrect? Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. No it's a rotten historically illiterate post, the usual self pitying drivel put out by those hankering after racial dominance when demographics have made that impossible. Actually I have sympathy for the argument that we should not remove artifacts from the past just because they represent positions with which some people are uncomfortable.In Thailand we have reason to understand this. But in the case of Confederacy statues these were generally raised in the 1920's long after the Civil War as part of the effort to reinforce racial apartheid.As such their removal is justified - but beware the slippery slope.There are always barbarians on hand to take advantage of the well intentioned.

  10. Maybe we should listen what the Thai people have to say - if they are allowed to e xpress an opinion.
  11. bye bye STICKMAN

    Against my better judgement I occasionally look at his site.One striking aspect is how hideous the girls are that he expects his readers to admire - low grade snub nosed fatties with tats in the main.Am I alone in thinking this? I accept it could be the decline in the number of lookers in the bars which I deserted years ago.Why in a much richer Thailand would a cute girl on the make want to work in places like that with their sad down market clientele?

  12. North Korea is a problem for the whole region not just the US.More specifically do you really think China will permit North Korea to have a credible nuclear capability and delivery system? If North Korea was puppet state completely subordinate to China that would be a different matter - but it isn't. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Your phrasing "backlash at any break with the past" resonates.I wonder why this is so much a part of Thai bureaucratic culture.I can understand why mid level civil servants don't like change but surely senior guys and ministers know they can make their mark by forcing through sensible reform.Anyway credit to Prayuth. I wonder if TM 6 forms are abolished for Thais whether foreigners with PR - who as you know follow the Thai system for the forms - will be exempted as well.Instinctively I feel they will not.
  14. To be fair to Prayuth his response seems to me to be exactly right, measured and appropriate. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  15. This is actually quite funny.I don't have enough information to comment on whether the current government is to blame for the flooding other than the presiding responsibility every administration has.I am pretty sure general strategy and anti flooding measures are mainly driven by senior bureaucrats and provincial governments.Yet here we have Halloween jumping in and speculating whether critics have some kind of anti junta agenda.You can be sure that if Yingluck headed the government now, he would be frothing and ranting at her criminal incompetence, failure to attend meetings etc etc.Exaggeration on my part? If you think so look back to the flooding crisis of a few years ago when the yellow mob on this forum were spitting with rage.This is a minor but telling example of why I hold the foreign apologists for the Junta in low regard - their hypocrisy and dishonesty.
