  1. Assist Thai Visa, a reputable visa service company in Chiang Mai, reports the following on their FB page. Note, for Chiang Mai only. (scroll down a bit) https://www.facebook.com/pg/assist.thai/posts/ "Update on Health Insurance for OA visas. Please note this is only for Chiang Mai immigration. They have confirmed that any person who has previously held and OA visa and then extended it inside Thailand WILL NEED health insurance for the renewal. This means if you arrived 3 years a go on an OA visa and since then have been getting extensions in Chiang Mai, you will need to show health insurance at your next extension. For those that do not qualify for insurance or cant obtain it, your option is to leave and then reapply for a NON 0 visa and then get a 1 year extension based on Retirement. Please note that health insurance isnt currently required for the Non 0 Retirement extensions. For any questions contact..."
  2. I'd be quite surprised if any US insurance company would be willing to sign that certificate. I hope the OP proves me wrong.
  3. Well, well, well, what do we have here? Looks like the whistleblower worked with Biden. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/joe-biden-worked-with-whistleblower-when-he-was-vice-president-officials-reveal
  4. Or you could do it the old fashioned way and vote Trump out of office in 13 months. But we know that can't be done, right? As Dem Rep Al Green said, "I am concerned if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected."
  5. Oh, the New Yorker. Of course we would have to believe them. Biden can tell it to the judge.
  6. Biden is running scared. He knows if they don't take Trump down, Biden himself will be in handcuffs for his role in the Ukraine prosecutor scheme.
  7. From the OP. "For those who buy health insurance from foreign companies Must have the sum insured not less than Thai health insurance as stipulated as well, " So you can use your US (or other) insurance.
  8. Trump is on firm legal ground in his refusal to cooperate with this coup attempt that is disguised as an "impeachment inquiry." The letter lays it all out.
  9. Have you read the letter to Pelosi and Schiff? That lays out what Trump will and will not do.
  10. Historic. Good job, President Trump! Trump to Pelosi and Schiff: Shove it!
  11. Trump is not going to cooperate with this "impeachment inquiry." He notified Pelosi and Schiff in an historic letter. The letter pulls no punches. Here is a small part of it. "Perhaps the best evidence that there was no wrongdoing on the call is the fact that, after the actual record of the call was released, Chairman Schiff chose to concoct a false version of the call and to read his made-up transcript to the American people at a public hearing." White House says it won’t cooperate with ‘unconstitutional’ impeachment https://nypost.com/2019/10/08/white-house-says-it-wont-cooperate-with-unconstitutional-impeachment/ So the jig is up. Pelosi and Schiff have been exposed for what they are in this historic, damning letter that carries enormous legal weight.
  12. Should the impeachment effort succeed, the Senate trial would open up all sorts of possibilities. For example, Biden and his son could be forced to testify. Trump might end up interrogating them, all televised. Some say the Democrats have not thought this through. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/oct/7/joe-biden-hunter-biden-could-be-forced-testify-don/
  13. These diplomats work for the President. He decides who gets hired, who stays, and who goes.
  14. Feel free to put me on your ignore list and to read the federalist article I posted. I will return the favor.
  15. As President of the United States, Trump would have been recalcitrant in his duties had he not brought up Biden's conduct during that phone call. That video of Biden bragging about withholding money unless the Ukraine prosecutor investigating his son was fired was evidence enough of wrongdoing.
  16. Lots of people 50+ yo are leaving CM due to the changes in the Immigration laws. So for those of us who remain, will things be better or worse? I could see things getting better once those who are living essentially at the poverty line leave. Some I know spend their days complaining about the cost of things and trying to squeeze the Thais for every last baht, thus giving us all a bad name. OTOH, those of us who remain may end up worrying about when the next shoe will fall. Will Immigration raise the financial requirements from 800000 THB to a million, or two? It could happen and one might ask why wouldn't it happen? So will CM improve or get worse for retirees?
