    History will take a dim view of Barr, Trump, and folks who have sold their souls in exchange for a slightly better return on their dividends. 

    Only the history of the 'anybody but Trump backers'. No, I'm not a Trump backer, just a realist. Hillary was crooked and I would not have liked her either. I was a Kasich supporter.


    A full, unredacted report is available to all the Senators and House Reps. They just need to get off their lazy behinds and go read it. It is not for public consumption because of the law. That is something the Democrats ignore blatantly.

    Of course all good sensible Thais have a firearm in the house. You never know when they might come in handy !

    Although your comment was made sarcastically, there is much truth in your statement.

    It was not made sarcastically at all. It is knowledge gleaned from living decades in Thailand. Sad as it seems I know.

    I've never owned a gun even though I was raised around them. My father had a 30-06, 12 gauge and a 22 long rifle. I shot many a quail, dove and rabbit, never lucky enough to find a turkey or deer (Dad did). But I really wish I could have a 38 here in Thailand. You guys are right, this is a dangerous world. If I ever move back to Texas, I will have something for self defense.

    There is probably one person reading this Forum who has some juice in the USA somewhere (Congressman, Senator, etc) who can pull some strings for this young lady.....

    You are well intentioned and hope you are right, but my congressman classmate cut me off within the 1st year he was elected. I started to give you an icon laugh, but then decided it should be an applauder. :clap2:

    Actually his friend is right as income is taxed by law regardless of if from within or outside Thailand. 


    But the current policy is not to tax savings from previous year being sent into Thailand so most people would be in that category if asked. 


    There has not been any active looking for people in any case.

    I think only the USA tax their citizens like that.

    Judging by how many are already stuck in jail in Thailand I think we only get to read the odd tit bit of what goes on.honesty and Thais are like bitumen and water,they don't mix very well.

    Absolute rubbish, both of you.


    The Thai people are just as honest as the world average. I've lived here for over 20 years. You cannot use the experience most have gained about Thai's in the entertainment districts with those of the Thai general population.


    Also, the Thai economy is not impoverished. It is thriving very well. I don't see how you could make this claim.

    It’s amazing that all these millennial kids have become experts on climate change yet haven’t learnt how to tidy their own bedrooms! Amazing 🙄

    Cannot tell you who the Allies were WW2. Cannot tell you where Vietnam is. Think Ben Franklin was President. Etc. The list goes on. 

    They cannot tell you about the floods & typhoons/hurricanes in the 20's  either. They just know it's hot.

    Oh, I forgot, the cool season doesn't exist anymore..



    Actually, it does. My first 'winter' here (Bangkok) in 1997/98 we had one cool day. We will have cool season again.


    Oh the drought conditions are not new either. My wife tells me about a time before I arrived (80s/90s) when her family could not farm (Isan), no rain. They had to find jobs in the South or other countries to feed the family.
