Will the ARMY step in again

As per the excellent article FrazDeeDK posted, this is all a showdown between the Big and little yellow chair vs Thaksin as proxy for the Big chair over whether or not the little pink chair will move up rather than the little yellow chair. Everything else is just high stakes noise. If you don't yet ...

Is the Thai Goverment Broke

Well, if Thailand isn't yet broke, it is well on the way. Thaksin was wise to pay off the IMF loan during his first term. During his administration, GDP per citizen doubled. Then he was booted and when the opposition usurped power, they promptly put the country back in debt and raided the cookie jar...

Looks like the fire will be fanned http://www.bangkokpost.com/breakingnews/392604/election-supporters-strike-back Bringing children to a protest KNOWING the risk of violence is just stooopid.

excellent analysis of the whole situation with lots of information I've never heard before.. If Taksin is doing all the back dealing discussed in the article, its all about him not the poor folks in the country Good grief, man! THAT is what you gleaned from that article? You need to read it or read...

http://www.nationmultimedia.com/politics/Violence-feared-as-red-shirts-ordered-to-protect-p-30225655.html What amazes me is how foreigners can see how fascist and anti-democratic the yellows behave and still drink the yellow Kool Aide.

Thailand's problem

Channel News Asia (#44 on Udon Home Cable), has a good, objective, IMO, three part series, on Thailand's current crisis, titled: " Thailand: The Great Divide ": http://www.channelnewsasia.com/tv/tvshows/thailand-the-great-divide/bridging-the-divide/965528.html available for viewing online anytime, ...

Will the ARMY step in again

Analysis from a disinterested and credible source: http://www.humanrights.asia/news/ahrc-news/AHRC-STM-298-2008 It is dated 2008, but is well worth a read to any disinterested person who would like a "real deal" take on the events then and since. Quite a few listed points have certainly come to frui...

Will the ARMY step in again

The vote must proceed. It is simple math that even if all the polling stations near yellow strongholds are blocked, those won't be statistically meaningful to the outcome. Worse has happened in other countries and the vote was still internationally recognized as a valid expression of the will of the...

Gyms in Udon Thani

Anyone know of experienced trainers who make house calls? I've got all the right equipment, but lack motivation and know-how.

When I was younger, motivation was easy: hot women. That was 9 glorious years married, two kids, and 10 kg ago, though.

Thailand's problem

1. It's not my country. 2. I have no vote. 3. I am a guest of the Kingdom. 4. Les majeste laws = no freedom of the press = no chance of knowing all the facts = silly to form or support a position or opinion. 5. My life continues normally regardless of what happens in Bangkok. So, I really don't give...

New Home Build "LET THE HEADACHES BEGIN"

I've also got the foil behind the tiles, but honestly, I think that was a waste. It rips easily when installed and I am of the opinion airflow is what really matters. Everything else is just extra. The foil backed gypsum is more protection against leaks than insulation. With your steep pitch, airflo...

The sporting goods store in Central 4th floor across from Sizzlers may have it. We bought most of our fitness room equipment from there, and I seem to recall that sort of bench.

Schooling in Udon Thani

I echo Firefox and might also offer that in some cases (every child is different), enforcing a study regimen is necessary. Make it something they simply know and expect to have to do (without being draconian, of course). My daughter knows she MUST perform learning activities on Saturday. It isn't a ...

With @2 m of space in that loft area, you might want to put some thin steel beams across it, lay some 12 mm or thicker viva board on top of those, and use it for a storage area. Just a thought.
