Re: The Historic Impeachment Trial of Trump

yes, Trump mentioned changes to Social Security and Medicare in response to questions about the burgeoning U.S. debt and deficit. Then later he walked it back. Do SS and Medicare need reforms? Sure do. I'd say means testing would be a relatively easy sell legislatively. If you're making say a $100,0...

Re: Foreigners Driving Poorly

while getting ready to turn left into Big C the other day, with my turn signal on, a scooter ridden by a farang (at least he had a helmet on) blasted its horn at me and raced by me continuing straight on my left (against the law). If I had turned quicker he'd have hit me... Adopting the local practi...

Adjacent to the railway project is a expressway project that will go from Vientiane up to Vang Vieng. According to this article from a few months ago it is 40% done...

Re: Baggage Checkin Udon-Texas

John, I can't say positively what they'll do right now but last spring when we made our local flight reservations at the Thai Airways desk at Udon Airport I specifically asked about checking baggage through to the States from Udon and was told no.

Re: Quintessentially Isaan (Photos)

a squad of these samlor pedaling broom peddlers regularly comes to camp in the Wat behind our house. A large truck brings them in.

Re: Iran firing Missiles in US Assets in Iraq

don't believe they have any anti-ballistic missile defense systems in Iraq. They do have Phalanx Close in Weapons Systems (CIWS) that use a radar directed 20mm gatling gun.. They are effective against short range rockets, RPG's and mortar rounds. https://www.armyrecognition.com/united_states_us_army...

Re: Lao Railway Progress

none the less both the Ethiopians and Kenyans have a logistical pathway that will eventually overcome local objections and lack of freight handling yards to become the prime pathway for freight in those countries.

well there's no Triple Entente agreement that's going to drag a bunch of countries into war over Soleimani getting killed.
