    I don't align with shirt color, other than when referring to election results. I thing in terms of "the people" (i.e., the electorate) and how those who seek to lead them obtain and wield power. What...

    They may know what they're doing, but the seem oblivious of the natural consequences of those actions. Thailand could be on the verge of their own Bastille Day.

  5. News: Re: 21 Charged Over Former Govt's 'Fraudulent' Rice Sale

    They can "feel" whatever, but their moves are actually increasing opposition.

    They are at war with their own people, which is what coups are all about; supplanting the will of the electorate by means of force. All of the "clean-ups" and "crackdowns are focused on groups who...

    This is interesting because, by presuming to decide the fate of a former PM loved by the people, they are, in a sense, deciding their own fate.
  8. News: Re: 'Impeachment good for reconciliation'

    You really couldn't make this stuff up. Reconciliation, in junta-speak, is defined as the inverse of the generally accepted definition. Can anyone say, "Emperor's New Clothes?"
  9. News: Re: Prayuth Vows to Bring "Smiles" To 2010 Crackdown Site

    "The government is doing everything to make the people happy," except allowing the people to determine their own destiny.
  10. News: Re: Parties to escape dissolution for 'overthrow of democracy'

    A charter being drafted by a non-elected government seeks to protect democracy by limiting political freedom; now, that's rich. :shocked:

    Utilize the social network to exert subtle influence would be a likely option.

    "The main highlight will be military parade and display of weaponry by the Thai armed forces."

    This must be part of the lesson on "morality."

    Re: The Emu story-Building a Home in Thailand

    Thais are, in general, not as confrontational or direct as we from the West. Giving harsh orders, issuing ultimatums, and punishing are anathema to most because it is seen as creating unnecessary...

    He's a legend in his own mind.
  16. News: Re: Thai Constitution Drafters Pave Way For Unelected PM

    It is treason, or at least a high crime against the people. People in democratic countries elect people to govern, not to rule or dictate.
  17. Visitor Warning: Re: Know Your Rights if a Policeman Stops you in Bangkok

    I never spend more than a day or two in Bangkok (embassy business). I enjoy freedom from police harassment in Isaan. I have only been stopped at standard checkpoints there; never just walking around.

    Childish, to state the least.
  19. News: Re: Thai Constitution Drafters Pave Way For Unelected PM

    I've never seen a political group so afraid of elections. They are always going on about how popular they are, with one bogus poll after another coming along to prop up the illusion. It seems to me...

  33. News: Re: Junta Leader's Calls For 'New TV Background' Sparks Internet Meme

    "Are you all bored of it now? Do you want me to dance in front of the camera next time?" Gen. Prayuth fumed.

    Actually, I think they would just like him to go away; no dancing required.

    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...

  38. 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...
