I can take him seriously. His lies were to protect the President and at Trump’s direction. He had documents to support allegations. He will not risk additional jail time for lying to Congress again.

Re: Elizabeth Warren is running for president

At this early stage, I sense a Biden-Warren or a Biden-Harris ticket would be the strongest.

Re: Retirement visa news - this time it's GOOD - maybe

I would not be too harsh on Thai Immigration. Just a little history as explained to me by reputable sources. About seven months ago Thai Immigration met with all embassies and had in their possession a bunch of proven false income affidavit letters and asked the embassies to verify the incomes. Firs...

Re: Retirement visa news - this time it's GOOD - maybe

This subject was of course a "hot" topic at today's PCEC meeting. Darren from Key Visa was also the speaker. My advice for those who are going the 65k monthly income route; start documenting your monthly income from a Thai bank now. I use TransferWise and Bangkok Bank.

I spelled it wrong in post #19. I will say the place has loyal followers and was absolutely packed. $7-11 seems to be the norm for a combo now.

Re: Pattaya's Best Burger

I'm in USA right now and eating my share of burgers. Five Guys, 'N and Out and another small chain called the Habit. The Habit was the best and the others the shits, especially when compared to Arno's.

Re: Plastic bags on their way out

Do what they do in California cities. No plastic bags for shopping, bring your own bag, or be charged for a paper bag. My Thailand solution would be, charge 20 baht for a plastic bag..... I can hear the Cheap Charlie's gasp.

Re: Pattaya's Best Burger

First time I ordered Med and it was perfect, perhaps really med rare and that's fine with me. Second time I ordered Med again and it was cooked well done and was dry. Ditto. My first I ordered med rare but it was med or med well but still tasty. The staff uses Ipads and now I insist on looking at t...

Re: ACH transfers from USA to Bangkok Bank -Alert!

I initiated a transfer for $2100 early Wednesday morning (before close of business in NYC) using TransferWise. The money posted to my BB account around 2:00 pm this afternoon. Much faster than my previous experience. From Thailand, if you need money quickly, I recommend initiating the request on a M...
