Many of your comment are understandable, when there is suspicion that the gov't is not acting in the best interests of it's citizens. It happens in the West every day, however under the blanket of democracy they need to be a little more intelligent about how it is accomplished.If you have read or been alive when US presidents put our and Vietnamese young people in a position" for their eyes to meet eternal darkness" war solves nothing. But it certainly is a way to occupy peoples minds, forgetting where the problem originated. This being said from a man who spent 30 years in the electronic warfare business Concerning swine flu and the government spraying it on people from aircraft, this is difficult to do. As winds disperse the spray. Also, pathologically the swine flu vaccine is dead swine flu virus. In immunology by injecting dead flu virus it will have the body begin to fight the effect. The same theory is used in Polio vaccine and others such as diphtheria. Swine flu is not brought on by airborne contamination. It occurs because farmers in agrarian society's bring their animals indoors with them to live with them to prevent stealing. please write me I would like to hear your feelings. Thank you for reading mine.

Just a point of view:
- the food, eating, especially, seems to be the most important activity in Thais life (the other side is working and any other activities involving a little sweat :)).
The word 'aroy' (sorry,m don't have Thai alphabet installed, residents know what I'm talking about), the expression 'aroy maak' and the question 'aroy may?' must be the most spoken words in Thai.
So, in the same order, they mean (for those planning to visit Th: tasty,

When will this end? Just what exactly do the red shirts want? They ask for house dissolution. They get it. They say that they want a definite date. They get it. Now they are trying to think of something else. If they want to play their terrorist games, they should accept the consequences of their actions.

I may have been imagining it, but I swear I saw some work being carried out on the new Magic Bus station at the corner of Narathiwas and Sathorn. It's only been 10 months since they finished the last section, so they are really busting a gut to get this finished - NOT

One day, they may finally open the Sukhumvit BTS extension or the airport link. Who knows, we might even get a decent train service... oh no, hang on, I'm losing it now...

Hi all,

Wow, what a fabulous site - quick friendly and easy. Hey, I am seeking advice. I’m an Australian planning to make a variety of products specifically for farangs living in Thailand and need your wise opinion.

Products: sauces (plum, tomato, mint, barbecue (HP) plum marinade), chutneys, pickles, jams (marmalade, plum etc), pickled / marinated gherkins and cucumbers, mayonnaise, mustards, ice cream (made from Thai fruits), yoghurt, sausage rolls, pies & pasties, pate’, pickled onions, biscuits, muffins, jam and custard tarts, fudge, muesli bars etc … maybe a variety of sausages as well. The cost of my products will be far less than similar imported products and all will be made in Thailand.

Question 1: would there be an interest in such products among the farang communities - Phuket, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Udon Thani etc?

Question 2: would you be keen to purchase such products for your business / home / restaurant … subject to quality and price?

E-mail me at anytime with your thoughts.

Thanks for your time.

Note to American Tourists: Don't speak so loudly. That way you won't show everyone how stupid you are.

Thanks for the very interesting, humorous as well as sad article about the Thai police. I've just read some very disturbing news about a tourist extortion racket operating in Suvarnabhumi airport. Let me know if this has been featured on nakedfarang; if not, I'll post it.

I don't know if any of you nakedfarang (I mean under your clothes, of course) have noticed all the chemtrails that have appeared in the Bangkok sky and other places. Have a look at thsse photos:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2990131&id=69667273997&saved#/album.p hp?aid=127133&id=69667273997

Chemtrails look a bit like the condensation trails known as contrails jet planes at high altitudes sometimes leave behind. Chemtrails are usually at lower altitudes and consist ot toxic spray released by jet aircraft, to make us sick and to weaken our immune systems. Now you know why so many school children are sick with the flu. You may ask why anyone would want to do that. This is where the plot thickens.

The global swine flu death rate has been very low, in spite of all the hype designed to increase anxiety levels to the point of hysteria. Then, when people are well and truly stressed and freaked out, there will be the solution in the form of a highly profitable (but completely useless and very dangerous) swine flu vaccine claimed to prevent the flu, but which will in fact escalate the pandemc to one similar to the one that wiped out millions in 1918. Please be warned: THE DISEASE WILL BE IN THE VACCINE - just as it was in 1918. Why: the psychopaths who run the show want to get rid of excess population.

Please join JoAnne Cremer's facebook group 'Jane Burgermeister - END FORCED VACCINATIONS' – if you haven’t already. JoAnne needs your support to help Jane to put an end to compulsory swine flu vaccinations which may otherwise be used for population control and reduction purposes later this year. There is not much time left! Here is the link to JoAnne’s group:

http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=128477011074&saved#/group.php?gid =102894871603&ref=ts

For those of you who don’t know, Jane Burgermeister is an Austrian journalist who has filed criminal
charges with the FBI, concerning plans by the WHO, the Obama administration, the CDC, FDA, Baxter, Novartis and other key players, to further the world depopulation agenda by means of the swine flu vaccine.

For the full documentation, go here:

This first link is to the documents outlining the charges which Jane has filed:

There's panic on the streets of Buriram; panic on the streets of Bangkok.

I think we are in the eye of a political storm here and I don't see any way that Thailand can avoid being dragged further down unless Thai people start to break their traditions of class division and corruption.

Please let me be wrong...

So Thaksin is now offering millions of dollars to dictators who came to power through bloody coups so that he can get a passport and use their banana republics as his base. Does anyone feel a sense of irony here?

It's perhaps the greatest indictment against his supposed philanthropic politics that he never put any real efforts into education reform. After all, would his loyal supporters be so easy to hoodwink and bribe if they knew what their overlord was really like?

Does anyone know anything about the new magic bus route along Rama III and Narathiwas?

They blocked all the roads for the construction just enough to obstruct traffic, and then they left it for a few weeks. Finally, they started the construction work. This was finished a few months ago now and things have come to a standstill. Are they planning to do any more or just leave it as the new Hopewell?

Part of me feels that it might just be a poorly planned project, while the other half of me thinks it was put on ice once the Bangkok gubernatorial elections were won. Ho hum...

i'm used to seeing selfish motorists going through a red light at rush hour, finding their exit blocked, and consequently blocking a whole lane of traffic, but even I was appalled today when, for no other reason than to move themselves 5 metres forward, a car moved to block an ambulance. Karma is a powerful thing...

what's the latest on songkran? I hear that alcohol will be banned, but only for Thais. Is this a joke? Quite apart from the impracticalities of selective selling, Thais have little respect for the law anyway and this is just open to abuse and ridicule. Come on. Think about it...

Thailand is full of children. Where else could you find 40 year old women acting, dressing and talking like 9 year olds? Where else do you have to coax adult students to study with games? Where else are people so sheltered and immature that they believe everyone else is only here to look after their needs and pamper them?

Isn't it interesting that Democrat Minister Witoon resigned immediately when a scandal arose against him, even though he wasn't implicated. This is called accountability.

Equally, Apirak (another Democrat) quit as governor of BKK after his second landslide victory when he was proven to have naively signed off a document that previous fat boy oaf governor and future PM, Samak, had left as a legacy of his own insatiable corruption. More accountability.

Now, compare all this with a certain Mr Thaksin and other TRT, PP etc. MPs who clung to power amidst allegations of massive corruption while making counter accusations and lieing through their teeth so that they could continue to milk the cash cow that they had blindfolded. Greed, selfishness and arrogance!!!

Now, the new government under a Democratic PM is doing good work and aiming to make up for earlier Democrat policy shortfalls by addressing the needs of the rural poor while at the same time tackling global and local problems of considerable proportions.

Could somebody please tell me why it is then that the UDD are fighting against this? Is it out of blind love for Thaksin? Is the wool still over their eyes?

It's going to be a difficult year whoever is in charge. At least we have some honesty in our current government. Let's add some stability so that we can move forward together and leave this mess behind.
John Doe
01 Feb 2009, 21:05
Just when we have a (relatively) honest government working for the good of ALL the people and not lining their own pockets, the leftovers of the bought government start issuing ultimatums before they have given the government a chance. I know the PAD were out of line and went too far at times, but only when the situation demanded it. The latest demonstrations by the red mobs (carefully chosen word) is just wrong. It is, at best, uninformed or, at worst, spitefful revenge masterminded and funded by a spiteful, self-serving egotitical maniac. Come to think of it, he would make a perferct arch villain in one of those superhero comics or James Bond movies

14 Jan 2009, 20:42
Well, now we have a democrat PM and a democrat governor of BKK. Could it be that there will be less politicking about who gets credit for extending the sky-train and it might actually be completed? It is perverse that it has taken more than twice as long to build a 2km extension than it took to build the whole system - all because of politics. Politics are supposed to be FOR the people, right? But then again, so are the police and don't get me started there

11 Jan 2009, 17:30
it looks like we might be getting something like a stable government after the latest round of by-elections and the revisited Bangkok governor election. Support for Thaksin and his cronies is waivering and they did much worse in these elections than anticipated. Could it be that by cutting off the supply of free handouts the supposedly fanatical support has lost interest? Let's just hope that Abhisit remembers to support the poor people of the north and north east. If he does, they'll soon forget all about Thaksin. All we'll need then is for the rest of the Bangkok middle and upper classes to remember that Thailand is bigger than Bangkok and we might be in for a chance at democracy.

Money talks in Thailand and THAT'S why Potjaman isn't in jail, Thaksin will return without going to jail and Newin's merry men changed sides. Hell, it even explains why so many red shirted supporters keep backing Mr. T. I don't see this changing any time soon, although Abhisit appears to be a man of morals and integrity. Let's give him a chance, but don't expect miracles right away. The tiger that is Thailand will not change its stripes overnight.
Stormin Norman
19 Dec 2008, 00:29
Yes, common sense. Abhisit seems to have listened to Newin and is promising to implement policies for the whole country - not just BKK. A focus on the poor people of Isaan and the North is the one good thing to have come out of Thaksin's destructive lust for power and wealth. As Newin said to Abhisit, "If you spread some money around Isaan, they'll soon forget about Thaksin". I'm still confused about why Potjaman isn't in jail, though.
AJ
11 Dec 2008, 04:48
Is common sense coming to Thai politics? I never thought that Newin Chidchob would play such an important role in the development of politics in Thailand but, even if he has made a nice little earner out of it, he has cut links with Thaksin and defected to the Democrats with his posse. Even better, he has insisted that the poor of Isaan no longer be ignored by the government. I see bright days ahead for Thailand

Yes, the PAD have lost the plot. Yes, the PAD have turned into an ugly monster that is a law unto itself. Yes, the PAD have murdered democracy through their ignorance of the plight of their fellow Thais. Yes, the PAD have brought the country to a halt and caused irreperable to the country's tourism industry and international image. Yes, the PAD have alienated all but the most brainwashed of their own supporters, BUT... None of this would have hapened if it hadn't been for one greedy, egotistical, power-mad dictator. Unfortunately, he is coming out of this looking like the innocent victim while the yellow revolutionaries are looking like thugs and terrorists. Open your eyes PAD - look at what you have become!!!

In the red corner, we have the largely uneducated and easily brainwashed poor; and in the yellow corner, we have the well-educated (by Thai standards)and easily manipulated middle class.

In my opinion, the reds never had any credibility apart from the fact they finally were no longer ignored by politicians. The yellows have clearly lost any credibility they ever had. The moral high ground is now below sea level in this bloody civil war.

It's interesting that the Democrat party have by and large stayed out of this all. Isn't it their job to oppose the government and offer alternatives for the people?

What a mess...

these are the most depressing times i have ever known in this once welcoming country. i hope they have a good plan B because the once solid tourist dollar is being spent in places with less political turmoil, less corruption, less beauracratic red tape, and more respect for the tourists who bring in so much money to the economy.

20 Nov 2008, 15:29
What is going on in Thailand? The country seems to be heading not for a coup but for full out civil war. It's all because of the selfish greed of a small minority who claim to love the country and poeple but just want to line their own pockets. Sad, sad, sad

So Mr. T has gotten divorced to protect his dirty money. Doesn't surprise me.

I bet he thought his money would guarantee him a safe hiding place in London but he went too far when he started slinging mud and trying to incite trouble back in Thailand.

Now he's making petulant threats and acting like the deposed dictator he is. He's an evil parasite and karma is catching up with him.
