Re: Groping

With regard to the Moore and Franken cases, two women have appeared on camera to recount their stories. Both have pretty harrowing tales to tell and both have broken down in front of the cameras. To those who do not believe these women, I ask this. Facing world scrutiny (i.e. knowing that tens if no...

Re: Groping

If Spacey admits to having done it once, I don't know whether he did it again, perhaps many times. Do you know ? If your answer is yes, I'd like you to tell me how you know. If the answer is no, what would it take to convince you that he's "guilty as charged"? If your answer is "I do...

Re: Groping

As for Kevin Spacey, don't try to decide for me what I do or do not believe. he publicly admitted and apologized it once he was accused. So I do believe those accusations. I am merely stating facts. Spacey has admitted one account of "possible" sexual molestation of a 14-year old boy when...

Re: Groping

People doing the accusing - prove it. Back up your accusations with more than just your say-so. How on earth do you PROVE something that occurred almost certainly in private almost 30 or 40 years ago? The fact is you can't except in the very unlikely event there happened to be a hidden witness or t...

Re: Baht at 30 month high against US dollar

Considering the Baht has been strengthening against the US$ over the past year, that's a pretty meaningless statement from the Bank of Thailand governor. The peak was Bt. 36.04 last December and it has been a steady decline ever since.

Re: Gay Chinese tourists flock to Thailand

I'm with firecat on this one. If two bars end up in that great go-go paradise in the sky and assuming they are not replaced, there will be less competition. That would result initially in greater demand for the remaining go-go bars and much smaller supply. Ergo prices will rise. But this presupposes...

Re: Baht at 30 month high against US dollar

I always treat financial predictions with a heavy dose of salt having been burned too many times in the past. After all it's only six months ago that one thread based on a newspaper report highlighted the following -

Baht expected to reach 36 to US dollar in July - 37 by end of the year

Re: Isis in SE Asia

The answer is basically 'yes' but inevitably the situation is complicated by the forces of history. In the south of the Philippines the Muslim religion became established back in the 13th and 14th centuries, long before the Spanish arrived and converted the majority of the population to Catholicism....
