  1. Had the Republican majority Senate voted on the nomination of Justice Merrick Garland in 2016, I could have no reason not to acknowledge the like vote on this nomination. BUT, the Republican Senate in 2016 refused to vote in 2016 because they said it was an election year. OK, then 2020 is an election year and no nomination vote ... blatant hypocrisy. The result?

  2. I agree and have observed the potential irony. The Donald, indeed Making America Great Again (or at least improved) in a reaction against the Trump Administration.

I tried being with girls I liked when the mood hit and found that Thai girls really treat you great ... never mind, yes the money thing is definitely there ... but still. When I retired here, I continued to test the waters. Taking different girls as the fancy suited. Then made arrangement for a uni student to come down from Chiang Rai on the weekends. Then contracted monthly for a girl from a bar to "service" me 2-3 times a week. But after being

  8. Welcome to th3 club. Get your payment says payment approved May 8th, 2020. I am on direct deposit for Social Security BUT ... I filed tax returns for 2018 and 2019, SS was to inform IRS that I receive direct deposit BUT they did not. IRS mailed a check to the Thai address given on my 2018 tax return BUT someone typed in the wrong address. So ... no payment received. Filed a Form 3911 to trace payment BUT due to US - Thai mail service disruption, no luck in finding check. Currently awaiting a determination to send check to new address listed on 2019 tax return. I filed more for incomation purpo
  9. Happy to be in a country where the medical advice has been followed. I am much safer than those in the US flailing about out of their justified frustration/anger. Just such a sad thing to watch.
