Geta alife Do something creative - If your life is dictated by being able to buy a beer I think you need to look in the mirror and ask yourself how can I help others suffering

I worked all my life to be able to have a beer when I want.  My working life allowed me to have the life I have now, and that life includes having a beer.  is that ok with you?  

You can have a beer any time you like. You just can't buy one.

 

They're not out to get you. It's because they for better or worse think it will discourage gatherings. Even if they're wrong, it's still well intentioned, no need to get your knickers in a twist over it.

So, while foreigners can't buy beer, the Thai's will be buying 100 baht bottles of Lao Khao on the black market and congregating. 

 

Talk about bringing the population down to the lowest common denominator.

If all policies were abandoned on the basis some people might circumvent them, nothing would ever get done. Should we make counterfeit alcohol legal while we're at it?

I understand your point. 

 

I am simply saying, sell retail beer to people, so they may enjoy at home, and "crackdown" on those congregating in groups, either in public, or holding parties.

Immanuel Kant was a real ****ant
who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
who could think you under the table.

David Hume could out-consume
Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel.

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.

There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya
'bout the raising of the wrist,
Socrates, himself, was permanently ****ed.

 

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will

On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

Plato, they say, could stick it away,
Half a crate of whiskey every day.

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bu**er for the bottle,
And Hobbes was fond of his dram.

 

And Rene Descartes was a drunken fa**,
"I drink, therefore I am."

Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker, but a bu**er when he's pi**ed.

 

A drinking song for all you thinkers out there with love from the Monty Python Lads.

 

Be patient.

So far so good in Pattaya in relation to your point, picked up my supply at one of the several independent wholesalers within easy drive of my Condo this morning. Prefer them to the big outlets, no queueing and I like to support smaller convenient local businesses where possible. Will top up if a ban actually happens rather than speculation.

ThaiBev's directors and shareholders would have the ear of government, so I can't see a ban.

They got one in the Capital and that is where their factories are!

Songkran is only the excuse for the ban.....Banning alcohol is very much in fashion worldwide these days.... 

Especially amongst generals in suits who're notoriously anti fun. It also makes people brave and encourages the masses to question their authority. I do think they had Songkran in mind though, the people have a mindset that they can do what they want during this festival and the police have never been able to manage it. In fact, they all disappear. It'll make their task a bit easier if there's less alcohol about. If I didn't know about the Thai law against brewing your own, I'd be buying up red grape juice and sugar like mad 🙂
