  1. I can understand some people don't like searching questions, it makes them feel uncomfortable. Although it does help you deflect from the contrasting life of of a public and private sector employee. You obviously don't understand the dichotomy which is apparent in what you have posted, I'll leave it at that.
  2. You just don't get it. You were a government employee, lifetime guarantee of a job unless you did something really stupid. The private employment sector is not so forgiving, make a mistake and you are out on your ear, and the health insurance the employer was paying for stops. Or if you are a small business owner, you pay for your own health insurance. Not to mention the millions of casuals who get no insurance at all. Did you actually make a meaningful contribution to the well-being of Americans, or were you just pushing paper around? Is that what you mean by doing the time?
  3. So in effect, the American taxpayer was supporting your health insurance. And continues to do so here. Reminds me of the Peter Sellers film " I'm all right, Jack". Perhaps you are unable to see the paradox of your opposition to socialism, while deriving considerable benefit from it. Many Americans are not as fortunate as you.
  4. Anyone remember coconut ice? Powdered sugar, condensed milk, desiccated coconut. Haven't seen it in ages.
  5. My Plan B was the Philippines, shot to bits now. Plan C is back to Australia, and buy a mobile home.
  6. I don't know what the people at TAT are smoking or injecting, but I want some. Even assuming Thailand removes all its roadblocks, what makes them think other countries will do the same? China apparently has just locked down another city, and winter is coming. Sorry, have lost the article in Australian media.
  7. Think I have a card back at the condo, in the village at present. Upstairs on the RHS, opposite the canteen. They do have a price list for various dental services. Perhaps your dentist is just following the time-honored Thai business model, I have fewer customers, I need to raise prices. Have a couple of friends in Australia who have all their dental work done in Thailand when they come for a holiday.
  8. I am waiting with keen interest to see your rebuttal of socialised medicine. Or perhaps you are so wealthy you can afford the best treatment in America. Just like Trump did, at taxpayer expense.
  9. I have a couple. Getting married to someone whose advertising was way above the end product, and not listening to my own advice on investment. I'd be a multi-millionaire by now if I had. The guy who followed it is. I have absolutely no regrets about coming to Thailand, just wish I had done it sooner.
  10. Interesting that when the same tactics as 1776 were used by the Viet Cong in their country, Americans cried foul.
  11. Funny thing, the conservative element in Australia is forever trying to white-ant our medical system. It has had some painful reminders from voters not to mess with it. Your diabetic friend would pay $6.60 for a month's worth of insulin. Then again, we do not have an Electoral College system.
  12. An alternative approach is to convert the .pdf to another document format, then print. https://www.freefileconvert.com/file/jKrK7kQ03r9k
  13. Rajavej has a very good lady dentist, speaks good English. What I like about her is the fact she will refer me if she thinks the job is more than her skillset.
  14. You may be right. However, fluoride occurs naturally in many water supplies. The Thai habit of drinking tea probably also helps, tea is rich in fluoride. I don't disagree sugar is a prime driver of cavities.
