  2. News: Re: New History Textbooks To Teach 'Correct Democracy'

    Lesson 1: "It ain't what it is because it is what it ain't." 555
  3. News: Re: Astrologer Warns of 'Political Chaos' As Comet Zips By Mars

    "...all major politicians are known to consult personal astrologers, including junta leader and Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha."

    That certainly explains why their actions appear so irrational.

    Re: Getting Banned

    I believe the goal of developing countries is to become developed. This means becoming a member of the international community, which develops its own set of norms (and international law). Feedback...
  5. Re: Songthaew drivers meet with Army over new system

    "Two Benches" is more descriptive. They look nothing like a bus.
  6. News: Re: Post-Coup Election May Be Delayed To 2016

    "Elections take time." Actually, it is figuring out how set things up in a way that ensures an election victory and can still pass the "sniff test" that takes time. We may also assume that martial...
  7. News: Re: Post-Coup Election May Be Delayed To 2016

    Wow, that IS some shocking news! 555
  8. News: Re: PM wants quality tourists to visit Thailand

    I think it is really another veiled threat, this time against Great Britain for having the nerve to question the investigation into the Koh Tao murders. After all, he can't threaten to charge the UK...
  9. News: Re: PM wants quality tourists to visit Thailand

    "Maybe the general could give another of his famous speeches. That should bring them in in droves. 555"

  11. Visitor Warning: Re: Would you ride an elephant on holiday?

    If an elephant becomes frightened or enraged, it can do considerable damage in a very short time. I wouldn't ride an elephant any more than I would ride a tiger.

    News: Re: Reward for traffic cops suspended

    "How did they come to this conclusion?" When they saw all of the backlash on social media sites. How about rewarding foreigners for recording police requesting bribe money? Nah, that might actually...
  13. News: Re: PM Prayut tells police to adhere to honesty and integrity in working

    Let's start with HONESTY at the top. What was your real reason for staging the coup, general? Leadership by example anyone?
  14. News: Re: Thai Authorities To Promote 'Martial Law Tourism'

    How out of touch with reality can the TAT be? You can't even get travel insurance traveling to a country under martial law. Thailand is being driven off the rails by a band of lunatics. :banghead:
  15. News: Re: Restoring Happiness~Washington Post article

    Both use different musical styles to accomplish the same goal: the German march and the Thai pop-style anthem. The goal is to create emotion and a strong nationalistic identity. Ultimately, it boils...
  16. News: Re: Restoring Happiness~Washington Post article

    Sorry, Marie. Perhaps Deutschland Uber Alles wasn't the best song choice to make my point, but most readers are probably not familiar with Es zittern die morschen Knochen.
  17. Visitor Warning: Re: Wat Pho to increase admission prices for foreigners by 100% from Jan 1st 2015!

    Vote with your wallet and just don't go there. Maybe they will compensate by raising the fee by another 100%.
  18. News: Re: Restoring Happiness~Washington Post article

    The propaganda machine is picking up steam. I wonder if the 'patriotic ballad' is anything like 'Deutschland Uber Alles?'

    To be perceived, propaganda must evoke the interest of an audience and...

    "It has the potential to portray Thailand as a nation that is corrupt from top to bottom concerned not with fairness, justice and truth, but with saving face and holding onto power and a hierarchic...
  21. News: Re: Yingluck Barred From Attending Fireball Festival

    They are very afraid of the people. They know they are not popular with the majority, which is why they "need" martial law to maintain their grip on power. I don't think the junta leaders have read...

    He must mean a "selection process" like that used to create the NRC. They are all obviously devout Buddhists, like that "monk" that spewed so much venom during the anti-government protests. He will...

    Yeah, not like those who abuse their power by seizing control of the country through non-democratic means and then suppress the freedoms of any and all who might object. That kind of abuse of power...

    I always thought greed was a basic Thai value, or at least the love of money and perceived status. It is obscene, really.
  25. News: Re: Reform Council Stacked With Engineers of Pre-Coup Protests

    You must be doing an awful lot of repudiating lately, Curt. 555
  26. News: Re: Reform Council Stacked With Engineers of Pre-Coup Protests

    That was the goal of the protests and coup, wasn't it?
  27. News: View Post

    Wow, down only 7%. I would think tourist areas would be virtual ghost towns by now. I guess some travelers are living in a bubble, or in serious denial. There are many other destinations in the...
  28. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    "“The police are doing their job. If the police hear your accusation, they will be sad," Gen. Prawit said." Aw, don't make the poor police sad. What about the parents of the victims who want real...
  29. News: Re: Crackdown to be launched against illegal migrant workers on Koh Tao

    You forgot about the profit motive, brother. The rich and powerful want cheap labor that they can freely exploit. Citizens who must be paid legal wages and who enjoy the protection of the legal...
  30. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    There should be considerably more forensic evidence for a murder of this type. Specifically, there should be lots of blood evidence, given the victims were hacked with a hoe. So, where is the police...
  31. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    That's okay because the PM is going to reward them for doing such a poor job on the frame-up.

    There is a dinosaur museum in Sahatsakhan, which is between Kalasin and Somdet. It fits your description, so I'm guessing that's the one. It is quite impressive and scientifically accurate. Our place...

    They claim to have the results of the DNA testing, linking suspect DNA with that found on the victim. That was remarkably fast...

    "According to a report published by Irrawaddy last week, police beat two Burmese migrant workers while interrogating them about the murder of Miller and Witheridge."

    I didn't do it, until you...
  35. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    They switched to DNT testing because DNA was getting too confusing. I agree that they should probably check his scrotum for burn marks from electrocution. Get a confession and leave no outwardly...

    Creepy. It is amazing that so many are unable to see through "The Emperor's New Clothes." Thankfully, whenever this guy opens his mouth, they become fewer. The people will really begin to wake up as...

    My wife has told me that she would never marry another Thai man. It seems the mindset is pervasive. This guys excuse was that he decided to rape her because she was beautiful. Well, who could resist,...
  41. News Update: Re: Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island M

    "All that remain was for at least two witnesses to come forward to make the case a solid one." Eye witness accounts are notoriously unreliable and hardly make a case a "solid one". The last I read is...

    "...stressed that there were no mafia operating on the island." Lost all credibility after making such a ridiculous statement. It is now obvious that the mafia is very well protected.
  43. News: Re: Crimes Against Tourists in Thai Beach Towns Continue

    Displace all of the street vendors and people start to get hungry. I expect crimes against foreigners to increase. If the police continue to act as they currently do, most such crimes will not be...
  44. News: Re: Plan for special area where tourists can party safely on Koh Tao

    By creating special "safe" areas, are they not admitting that other areas are inherently "unsafe"?
