Re: Rumor Check: Problems with income method in Udon for extension based on retirement

I've been saying for years this is the the end goal. They're not interested in what they can't see or hold in their hands. They're only happy when they see 800k in a Thai bank.

Americans: The Taxman Cometh

Because your post is an insult to the 100,000,000 + Americans who shell out payroll taxes to pay for Social Security and Medicare benefits to (mostly) the very same people who belittle/ignore their contribution.

Americans: The Taxman Cometh

Oops, typo there. Should be 49% pay nothing [-X This is what happens when people get their information from Fox News instead of thinking for themselves. Firstly, what is being discussed here in US Federal Income taxes, which comprises only about 40% of federal revenue. Another 40% of federal revenu...

No idea what's behind this. My wife credits Ms. Yingluck, but really don't know. :roll: There are very few things we as farang know for sure here in Thailand. But,certainly one of those precious few certainties is that Ms. Badluck and the man who wears the pants are doing absolutely nothing to help...

Quite frankly, you come off as a complete nut job from your post. I'm surprised you weren't deported if your response to the Thai Immigration officials was similar to what you posted.

I'd just grit my teeth and put the 400k in the bank for 3 months. I don't like to F- with people who have the power to make my life difficult. JMHO If she doesn't want you to have a visa, you could put 4,000,000 in a bank account for 3 months and still be denied. The Immigration officials have comp...

Yea, on TOT --- not only is Demonoid's website blocked, but the tracker is blocked as well as several other popular trackers. It is very clear this is a coordinated effort by TOT (and maybe others) to restrict access.

TOT wireless

So, what are you getting for download / upload speeds?

What package did you buy?

How is your connectivity (in other words, is it difficult to connect sometimes and do you often get disconnected)?
