Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

The fact that none of these obvious actions have been implemented is actually the "Root Cause" of the pollution problem the way I see it. That is also the way I see it. I would have thought any fool could see that trying to deal with only the symptoms without effectively dealing with the ...

I would be interested to know where he gets the turnips. I don't recall ever seeing turnips for sale anywhere in Thailand. I do like turnip greens and raw turnips, but I never liked cooked turnips.

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...
