Re: Deja vu all over again?

I hope it works. That's assuming they ever get around to building it. I've been reading about trams and/or people movers coming to Pattaya for years and none of it has ever gotten past the talking about it stage. Trams? Within our lifetimes? I wouldn't bet the farm on it. Even if they do build it, ...

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

The Thai owned/operated tour bus companies are the only ones I can really see who are making money even at the discounted rates being offered to the Chinese. I agree with your post, but you left out a couple things about who is making money - restaurants and hotels. The Chinese tourists are always ...

Re: National immigration police chief on retirement visas

Do you think the 10 year visa being proposed by Big Joke would be any less stringent? I have no idea. No details of that proposal have yet been published that I can find. I think it's pointless to start speculating about what the requirements for a 10 year visa might be. I think it's better to wait...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

I hope Congress does not give in to Trump. Along with being the worst president the USA has ever had, he is also a bully, a sociopath, attempting to be an autocrat, and he is blackmailing the entire country for his absurd, useless wall. If congress gives in to a blackmailer, like all blackmailers th...

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

these buses spewing huge plumes of black smoke all over the place. I believe those buses are among the most major sources of the air pollution, if not the major source. The fact that there seems to be no enforcement of emission standards on these buses is on my "I Don't Get It List." Thai...

No. It is a private, not public, school. Tuition funds it. The can do what it wants.

It's not only the school that makes me sick, but also the parents who, by virtue of placing their children there, advocate teaching bigotry.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Pence's stupidity in continuously parroting his master's voice really made him look yet more idiotic yesterday. More idiotic? I didn't know that was even possible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_YKLPoM2Z0 What can you say about a man whose wife teaches at a school that bans students if they or th...
