Thai Merchant goes above and beyond

Great experience. It is nice to hear about positive interactions with Thais, which is a nice contrast to the flood of negative comments by some posters. Yes, I often wonder why the vast majority of my experiences -- probably exceeding 95% -- are so positive in the same venues where so many expats c...

Too many in prison for far too long: US attorney

The problem is the words "could be reduced". Most Assistant US Attorneys (AUSA) are not interested in that aspect. They'll have to explain their action to seek a lesser charge to their boss so it's just much easier not to bother. Except that Holder is their boss. If Holder wants it, there should no...

There is a lady in Udon who does embroidery that I've used for many years now. Much of the work she has done for me has been shipped to the US to friends and associates. She does excellent work. Does many things for the local schools, military and the police. She was working on some pieces for me t...

"As for the federal drug crimes, Holder and the feds involve themselves with the drug kingpins. The biggest of the big! Holder is going to slack off on them because they're minorities? The kingpins?"

WBU "And BTW, most drug laws are state laws. Holder has no control over that" True but the feds have gotten into the game big time under the provissions of the Interstate Transportation Act. Up until my retirment in 2004 nearly all major drug busts in Florida were handled by the federal courts. In ...

Gotta agree. It's always about "feel good" intent, which is why there are always so many unintended consequences.

I reiterate my previous statement that I'd be far more concerned about my privacy (if I was) while living in Thailand that I would be living in the US. You can undoubtedly add China and Russia to the same list as Thailand. http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/364423/police-deny-that-plan-to-snoop-...

I wonder, specifically, what built-in bias Holder is talking about.

And BTW, most drug laws are state laws. Holder has no control over that.
