Re: What winter? Summer will be Hotter!

I'm up in Buriram and it's 29C/85F and it's still February.

No complaints from me. Chicago is colder than Antarctica right now.

Re: Drinking, driving, and licenses

I'd like to see the quadruple the penalties. Half the drivers over here are drunk and at the same time the most aggressive drivers on Earth with those "Me First" driving attitudes. They swerve around and cross lane lines illegally routinely like Mr. Magoo even when they're sober. Add a few...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

A question for Dodger. You have put this money aside, but what arrangements do you have in place to make it accessible if you are too incapacitated to do so? That's a question worth considering, because some of the most likely situations where you will need large sums (stroke, heart attack, serious...

Self-Funded Health Plan (SFHP) The essence of the concept is that I am liable for the risk associated with my own health costs and choose to carry the risk using my own assets and not take out insurance through a traditional insurance company. Self-funding involves a transfer of risk from myself to ...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

Just another tid bit on Medicare: Medicare works only in the U.S., with limited exceptions. (none of these exceptions apply to retirees in Thailand) A retiree living overseas would need to consider other options, such as buying private insurance before moving, or enrolling (if possible) in health co...

I had a policy in Thailand with Liberty Mutual but opted to cancel it last year after testing the waters at Queen Sirikit Hospital for myself and then decided to go the &...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

Medicare is great but it only pays 80% of the bills for the average American if they’re lucky and it’s that 20% that’s an absolute killer due to the astronomical costs of U.S. health care. Even with all the supplements they offer you at a cost (including Medigap) you can count on being stuck with so...
