Re: Sin Sodt issue

What with all the Thailand experts round here... What difference does it make? It's an opportunity to display your superior knowledge of all things Thai. Perhaps somebody can thank the troll for the opportunity to divulge your hard-earned and well-deserved moniker of long-term expat. It'd be a real ...

Re: Christmas Island .

vent it at those who deserve it, not a country thats just trying to protect themselves! Didn't you get the memo? You're not allowed to protect yourself. You're not allowed to go after those who attack you. You gotta roll over and absorb it because it's ALL your fault. Yes, Bali was Australia's faul...

Re: Texpat vs Oz

Nonsense. What does any of that have to do with the topic of asylum-seekers drowning in a boat wreck on the shore of Christmas Island? This isn't tit-for-tat. Are you suggesting that because there are illegal Mexicans in the US, I'm somehow obliged to be silent? Yes, I believe that's what you're say...

Re: Christmas Island .

Merely refuting this sort of nonsensical, overused and highly inaccurate cliche. we really have no option other then to follow the U.S. into every s##t fight they stir up.

Re: Texpat vs Oz

Go away? I don't think so. Indeed, there is robust, often quite engaging debates and discussion over various countries' policies on this forum. Why is it different now? Why do you think I would go away? This is jacksprat's thread, "Texpat v's Oz." I'm not v's anything or anybody. It seems to me some...

Simmer down Bandung_Dero. Are we forbidden to be critical of a government's policies? I sincerely don't think so. There are volumes on this board critical of many government's policies. Thousands of critical entries about one government alone. Yet you've become rabid over a just a few critical of yo...

Oh dear, again?

Tsk, tsk. No sense getting all lathered up about a simple discussion over Christmas Island detention facility, is there?
Golly. So sensitive. Funny how a little critical observation sends some right off into the deep end.

Ah, yes, of course.
That explains the three-year-old in leg irons for two weeks with neither toilet nor shower.

Unwanted species indeed.

Run-and-hide strategy doesn't address the truths that are, evidently, too painful to bear. Odd, you never seemed so reluctant to whine and moan and criticize the US for jailing terrorists in Gitmo -- but you simply "don't want to talk about" Christmas Island SuperMax: Gitmo South.

Re: Misinformation: A Study of the US Electorate

Eric Holder assures us they only looked menacing. No problem with Michelle Obama "just hanging out" at a polling station either ... you know, just chatting up voters as they head into the booths ... What a friendly gal... :roll:
Good ole, Holder, we expected as much from that dirtbag.

This is the kind of stuff they called sour grapes not too long ago ... Nov 2008.
Whhaaaaaaa!

Shame the Messiah couldn't hold his house together for more than a few months. Truly a spanking the legislative branch hasn't seen in a long, long time.
