  1. I wouldn't be surprised to hear the goalie was paid off.....after all, he did practically THROW the ball into his own goal.

    Gay McD advert

    I'm lovin' it.....but not in a gay way......
  3. @condotown: Me thinks he doth protest too much.
  4. I am indeed impressed....and humbled. The spirit I witnessed today was like nothing I have ever experienced.
  5. All through the Red Shirt Protest, people were saying (myself included) "that would never happen in a western city"...refering to the length of time and scope of the protest itself and the destruction and disruption it caused......"those guys would have shot long ago..." etc etc etc. Well, today, I went for my daily survey of the roads.....Rama 4, through Silom, and on too Siam/Central World......what did I see? 100's...no....1000's of volunteers on their hands knees scrubbing away the fire and smoke damage ...shoveling garbage...and generally just pitching in. Whether or not you feel certain

  7. It's 2am and I'm watching the news BBC. I was getting all riled up listening to that numbnut reporter make it sound like the Thai army was randomly killing puppies, followed by the presenter's interview with the Thai ambassador to the USA.....she desperately wanted paint a picture that was sensational, but K. Don whatshisname wasn't falling for it.....I was thinking; "Ah crap! these assholes have got me all riled up with their narrow armchair opinions being flogged off as news" and then she asked the question: "Is Thaksin the leader of the Reds?" "Yes, if you asked 100 Thais who the leader of

  9. CORRECTION: saying that neither group is in touch with real Thailand is factually incorrect. The fact is, BOTH groups are intimately familiar with real Thailand and that is how they are able to manipulate the masses....what I should have said was that neither group is touch with real Thailand's needs or best interests.
  10. @damnGIRL.....perfect. equating poor eyesight with brainwashing.....that makes sense. Now totally ignoring the statement for it's content and focussing on who it was addressed to? That sounds much more like brainwashing to me. @damnNAM....here what comes again? are you saying the red shirt movement isn't stupid or that the yellow shirts are in touch with real Thailand? Got news for you...both are stupid and neither are in touch with anything except the self-serving agendas of those that lead.
  11. @damngirl......"there is more behind".....that's what gets my goat! Of course there is more behind it. But it's not what you think. Your misguided sympathy rests in two very wrong assumptions: 1. the average "demostrator" (aka sheep) has ZERO idea why they are really there....all they know is that they have more cash today than they did yesterday, and they can justify that becuase the "leader of the day" has told them they are fighting a good cause....and 2. Not one of these so-called leaders has anything but his own self-interest, gain, fame, bank account, at heart. Again....this applies to
  12. @damngirl.....Got news for ya sweetheart...those "terrorists" in the south of thailand you are willing to "kill all" are "Thai people" too! And while I of course hate the thought of a young innocent being shot...what the hell is he doing "taking a peak" in a live fire zone? By now, everybody and his dog know the area is dangerous......where were this kid's parents? I may seem harsh with my comments, but I am sick and tired of all this "convenient" and "selective" outrage. As an idiotic aside, and speaking of dogs, normally you can't walk five feet in bangkok without having to step over a soi
  13. Cosmo...you would have to be completely delusional to do otherwise.
  14. The fact that any "white-skinned" visitor to this country would assume such a strong one-sided opinion is rediculous. This whole situation, and all that preceded it, have nothing to do with any kind of altruistic intent or democracy or betterment of the people or any of that sound-bite bullshit. It does, however, have everything to do with a few self-serving, rhetoric-spewing, sheep-hearders grabbing what they can while the getting is good. The leaders of these "groups", for the betterment of all Thailand, should be lined up and shot....and I don't give a flying **** what color shirt they are
