  1. News: Re: 'Mind Research' To Instill Thai Junta Leader's Teaching Underway

    "...under the democratic principle." Thought control and democratic principle are certainly strange bedfellows.
  2. News: Re: Pheu Thai, UDD boycott 'won't hurt charter'

    Nothing can 'hurt' the charter because it will be entirely worthless, as written. Why waste time and energy fighting over moot points. In Thailand, every government writes its own charter and it...
  3. News: Re: Pheu Thai, UDD boycott 'won't hurt charter'

    This whole thing is like reading some tragic comic strip series.
  4. News: Re: Anti-military junta protest surfaces in Chiang Rai

    It depends on how far the dear, self-appointed leader wants to push it. If he stands firm, crackdowns will become more frequent and severe, and civil war is a real possibility. He would certainly not...
  5. News: Re: Prayuth: Don't Ask For Democracy - And Don't Ask For Election, Neither

    What they have in mind, sir, is a return of power to whom it rightfully belongs...the people.
  6. News: Re: Anti-military junta protest surfaces in Chiang Rai

    It appears the dear fellow is less than welcome in the North and Northeast. Oh, didn't I read about planned protests in Bangkok too? I wonder what his reception will be like in the South? Yep, it...
  7. News: Re: I'm not a dictator, says angry Prayut

    dictator
    ˈdikˌtādər/
    noun
    1.
    a ruler with total power over a country, typically one who has obtained power by force. :thankya:
  8. News: Re: PM appeals to all Thais to bury the hatchet

    I'm sure lots of Thais would like to "bury the hatchet" somewhere...
  9. Opinion: Re: Thailand 'one of the most dangerous tourist destinations on Earth'

    Yeah, the press has been remarkably quiet on that one. It was just a case of teen angst, is what I heard. :banghead:
  10. News: Re: Freedom of Thought Still Legal, Thai Junta Member Confirms

    Many more "attitude adjustments" on the horizon, me thinks.
  11. News: Re: Freedom of Thought Still Legal, Thai Junta Member Confirms

    "Thais are still allowed to quietly disagree with their military government, a member of the junta confirmed today." Thailand belongs to the Thai people. Who is he to "allow" Thai people to think?
  12. News: Re: Students Arrested For Anti-Coup Salute During Junta Leader's Speech

    Maybe they should switch to a one finger salute 555
  13. Opinion: Re: Thailand 'one of the most dangerous tourist destinations on Earth'

    " The article is tripe, and the book sounds worse." The article is a type of offal from the stomach of a farm animal? Even if he had written " trite," which I suspect is the word he intended, it...
  14. News: View Post

    I won't buy Red Bull or Singha because I don't want any of my money going to "that" family. I also tell people why, if I see them with those products. If there is no justice in the courts...
  15. News: Re: Anti-Coup Activists Crash London 'Hunger Games' Premiere

    Not just in Khon Kaen? Protests in Bangkok too; now, that is telling. Everyone is on the way to a military base for an attitude adjustment.

    Re: No more visa runs

    Unless, evidently, you are a Russian.
  18. Opinion: Re: Reds should not let opportunity pass them by

    I think they are taking full advantage by doing nothing. If they participate, they only help legitimize the sham. By sitting back and doing nothing, they allow the opposition to run its own, doomed...

    Re: The Emu story-Building a Home in Thailand

    Sounds like we just need to reacquire our taste for squirrel. :p
  20. News: Re: Thai Junta Chairman To Tour Two Redshirt Provinces This Week

    I'm sure he will be greeted by both of the junta supporters in the region. 555
  21. News: Re: Bowing To Junta's Pressure, Thai PBS Axes 'Reform' Broadcast

    "He said that it seemed to him that the Thai PBS host has some attitude and misunderstanding that requires some adjustment." It appears that the military is pretty good at adjusting attitudes.
  22. News: Re: THAI suffers nine billion baht loss in nine months

    These folks are going to be the proudest, most nationalistic, poorest people on earth, if they allow the country to continue its slide into the past. They probably think that raising ticket prices...
  23. Opinion: Re: Thailand 'one of the most dangerous tourist destinations on Earth'

    If Thailand is not dangerous, why do they need to be under martial law? It seems that would imply that there's an extraordinary danger to public safety. Which is it?
  24. News: Re: PHUKET: Officials scramble to resolve ban on tourists bringing own beach umbrella

    I wonder why tourism is down. This seems to be a great mystery for Thai officials too. ;)

    Re: Health insurance

    You are correct, Mr. Emu. She can only use 30Ŗ scheme in her home province (i.e., where her house book says she resides).
  26. Re: Being Married To A Thai Lady For Forty Years

    I've been married to my wife for just under 11 years. The silent treatment seems to be the relationship "weapon of choice." I've gotten to read her pretty well over the years. I continue to grow more...
  27. News: Re: Bowing To Junta's Pressure, Thai PBS Axes 'Reform' Broadcast

    Fascism at work, again.
  28. News: Re: Thai Police Ban Controversial Book On Royal Succession

    "This is all that is needed." See, ignorance must be bliss. Happiness has been "restored."
  29. News: Re: Lawmakers Welcome Activist Monk Buddha Issara's Reform Proposal

    Nobody could possibly think that this guy practices the teachings of the Buddha, could they?
  30. Re: Made the decision [about retiring in Thailand]

    I'm actually changing my plans in the opposite direction. With the current political situation, I'm not willing to risk investing everything I've worked for in a country on the verge of civil war....

  32. News: Re: Destiny of New Constitution Written In The Stars, Drafter Says

    What a complete load of BS.
  33. News: Re: Academics Suggest Reviving Absolute Monarchy's Supreme Council

    Academics, eh?
  34. News: Re: Yingluck summoned to appear at NLA on November 12 for delayed impeachment request

    I still can't figure out how you can "impeach" someone who has already been forcefully removed from office. I've never heard of such a thing.
  35. News: Re: Junta to summon people to 'boost understanding'

    "The army chief said there was a small movement against the junta, but it was not strong enough for the authorities to be worried about."

    So, is this why they need to keep martial law in effect;...
  36. News: Re: No rallies over impeachment, Prayut warns

    Textbook fascism, Mr. Rick. Are there really so many people in this world who can't recognize it when they see it? If you read what some expats write on other forums, you'd think they outright...
  37. News: Re: Prayuth Asks Media Top Stop Reporting About Thaksin

    A very evil and dangerous tool.
  38. News: Re: No rallies over impeachment, Prayut warns

    Yeah, and a really boring party it is.
  39. News: Re: Police Threaten Death Penalty for Releasing Sky Lanterns Near Airports

    Returning happiness to the people. ;)
  40. News: Re: Junta Member Downplays Ties To 'Happiness Fair' Contractor

    At least he didn't appear on a cooking show. 555
  41. News: Re: No rallies over impeachment, Prayut warns

    They seem determined to make her into Thailand's very own Aung San Suu Kyi. Evidently, they are even ignorant of recent local history.
  42. News: Re: No rallies over impeachment, Prayut warns

    "You are strictly forbidden from protesting this lynching!" Sieg heil!
  43. News: Re: Prayuth Asks Media Top Stop Reporting About Thaksin

    "Don't publish photos of persons who violate the law." Wasn't the coup a violation of the law?" No more pictures of the coup makers, I could get behind that one.
  44. News: Re: PM urges public to watch out for corruption and to report to government

    Yeah, he really means "red" corruption. If you point at some yellow corruption, which we've been assured doesn't exist, then you're the one who is likely to be in trouble.
  45. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    The real issue is with the integrity of the DNA "evidence," itself. The gathering, chain-of-custody, and secure storage of the DNA samples is suspect. In a real court, there is enough question to...
