Re: Taco Bell comming to Thailand!

Taco Bell is to Mexican food what McDonald’s is to gourmet hamburgers. :shock: Absolutely right. Seeing as Pepsi owns the brand, along with Pizza Hut and KFC, it's little wonder. Now Thais get to be inundated in poorly executed faux Mexicaqn fare much like Americans have been in the past. If they w...

Re: Insensitivity of American Film Producer.

I recall the movie about the Oakland Hills fire in 1991. The Fire Captain that declared the fire out the day before it caused a billion in damages was black, and they made him asian in the movie. Raised a few eyebrows.

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

Not all dealers have body shops or do glass work. And agreed, it does seem to be an insurance matter. They send a mobile installer to your work or residence in the States..one phone call. If AEK can require Bupa clients to pay first, why can't Toyota? I can't imagine a Thai driver taking a rock from...

Re: travel cards

AMex Travelers checks are almost gone with the wind, here. You pay a fee on every check....Years ago, they were better than paper currency. Things change. A good Visa Card is great, and Master Card..almost as good, and Amex in a distant third, probably behind Union Pay. But pre-paid do stuff like Fo...

Why is it OK for blacks to repeatedly announce they've had enough of whites, But it if a white claims to have had enough of blacks, -- sorry, you can't go there. It's the same garbage that reduced England and native Englanders to a subordinate shell. Why would anyone want the US to follow suit? Unl...

Re: Round the world cyclists murdered

Chiapas is probably the most dangerous part of Mexico, and perhaps, the Western Hemisphere.

They love to ride way faster than is legal or safe, and often do not yield to pedest...

Re: Will Trump make the Grade.

The plan to reduce drug costs is quite solid, if not brilliant. My Merck shares were up three percent on the day, which tells me honest businesses have nothing to worry about. Middle men, who promote systems of rebates and kickbacks are On notice, however. The Michael Moore fans love to make villain...
