Thanks for caring so much.

IMHO:

Whow, LoveNutz, you really showing off, right now
That you know nothing about Thailand.
Understandable, you are a bit far away. (Even with the internet so close)
But your state of not even knowing your own gouvernments evaluations, however....!

Yes, the US government did complain, after the coup, about the coup and about using martial law.
And mentioned that it would be better, to become democratic again.
So that the US not have to put Thailand into the folder and on the list with all the bad countries.
Thailand must be on a good way, then:
USS Germantown Wraps Up CARAT 2015
CARAT 2015



So don't worry, the US Navy will show up here under all gouvernment decisions, which are possible.
But not to help me. Or any other respect- and careful visitor of LoS

And why is that? Simple story:
The Thais are a almost closed society. They sort out all their (political) problems among themselves.
Because this is the only and real 'Land of the free', in this world, we living in.
Because that's what Thailand means, Thai = free.
Look it up, the name Siam got changed for a reason, to Thailand, 1948.

So as long as you can pay enough for your 'freedom of speech', or as long you understand, that you are a guest in this country, you can go to the beaches, can even walk around topless in shoppingcenters, and show everyone, what ignorand [email protected]#$rd you are
(no offense, this you is not meant in your direction, ok?)
And they do their political stuff, mostly in Bangkok, and leave you alone.

Thai people can really seperate their political disagreements from the business, meaning, moneyflow into the country.

That's why always police and army is acting strong on 'not good for the image', somehow. As long this image can cost tourists! But in case, it is outside the tourist areas, 'may bpen rai' is a common reaction.

And in the end, the army did under martial law lots of things, which have been very good for Thailand.
Looks only like, after about the first year, now it goes more and more back to the status from before the coup. Only the pockets have changed.

I'm still waiting for the coup in her party.
Isn't the german treasure secretary on the move, now?

Very interesting situation, again. Greece made it back into the media-focus, too.
That will become a frosty winter, in Europe

I always worry more about europe as I worry about my situation here in Thailand!

No matter where we hail from, we all have our baggage. Not ONE country can stand alone nor claim to be the best. That said, this is a motorcycle forum where borders mean little simply because we share one common interest, motorcycles. Therefore let's try to set aside the politics and focus on what this forum is about.....motorcycles and the enjoyment of riding.

@CBR-250-R.....Schroeder was responding to my kidding about me, a "wee Irish" girl visiting with my 500r. It's a running joke between us. Nothing more. No politics here at all.

I think I got that.
But the situation in europe, in special in germany, with this breach of a dike, expected 1-1.5 million people only in/for germany, the winter just in front, the river not drying out, on top all this spying on everything and everyone:
I think Schoeder understands, what I mean.

I have read that people in germany got the rental contract cancelt.
For the flat, they lived in for decades.
Because the village wanted to accomodate refugees in there.

So this was also kind of a joke. Only total political.

Not a joke:
"We can", Merkel says. "You have to, germany, europe", she means

To say it with american words:
Good night. And good luck, europe

You're sarcastic, I get it.

But I don't even know what you're trying to say lol. My own govt evaluations? Would you care to elaborate what you mean by that? Actually, don't.

Admittedly I don't know much about Thailand, other than what I read off the human rights violation website.

When you get back from your Thailand vacation maybe you'll realize that it isn't the utopia you claim it is. (Could you imagine getting sick in Thailand and landing in one those hospital!? Yikes.) The US isn't evil either lol. It's just trendy to say it is nowadays, and apparently you're a trend follower. That's all I'm saying.

So CBR-250-R, I don't care about you, your political views, or Thailand.

If you want to talk about motorcycles you can find me in another thread. I'll try my best to take you vapid and narrow-minded opinions seriously.

So, after all, internet is still very limited in the US?
Or can it be very selective reading, only?

I'm a trend follower? That's news to me.
Instead I'm be able to forge my own opinion.

And I have a private health insurance, so: Yes I can!
I 've been there, done that. Of course not in a gov. hospital
But it is maybe a little difficult, to explain the system of 'cheap' government hospitals for everyone, plus privat (good standard) hospitals, to someone from a country, where 'Obamacare' or any other granted healthcare is hellish stuff, for the rich deciders. Who have no problem, to afford a private health care, anyway.

You know, the government hospitals in Thailand may not be the best hospitals in the world. But they don't save someone, to kill him afterwards with the bill.

No, You Can?t Just Go to the Emergency Room?Unless You Want to Go Broke | Mother Jones

You would love to have one of them, in the US.
In case you don't have a health care, but are in need of help.
You can trust me with this.

They even help tourists with (stupidly) no travel health insurance.
And mostly not even try to keep your passport, till you pay.

Hint: You go to Thailand, get a travel health insurance. You can simple take this one:
Thailand Travel Shield

narrow-minded opinion
Just not sure, right now, which part of my opinion you mean.
On motorcycles or on politics / interest in others countries / ability to make up a own one.

I appologyze for thinking, and writing, that I see the narrow minded part not really on my side of the conversation, here.
But so do you, right?
So it's even.


Let's meet in a motorcycle topic.

Oh, did I say, I haven't started this topic?
It was only adressed direct towards me.
And you jumped in, right?

Thailand is a fantastic Country. I cant understand why anyone would want to take a cheap pot shot at it, esp on a motorcycle forum??

I've visited there three times now and really enjoy the Thai culture, they are lovely humble folk with strong values and they look after one another. Awesome food too!

I wonder how much time the OP has spent there to form such a strong opinion?

That right there is the reason the US has such an ugly reputation internationally. Why do you assume they would want US help, or that the US is the only country capable of helping them?

It's a smokescreen; the US doesn't "help," it gets involved to further it's own interests under the pretense of helping. Libya is a great example of this, the nation with the highest HDI in Africa, with a healthcare and education system the rest of Africa was modelling itself after, has become an open war zone as a bunch of different dictators fight for control. The only "helping" there was the US helping itself to Libya's oil production, much of which is now directly under the control of US entities.

This is abundantly obvious to everyone outside of the US. Has been since Operation Ajax back in '53.

Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.

Not to single anyone out here, but you all could be spending your valuable time riding your motorcycles, rather than wasting time posting a bunch of frivolous geopolitical BS.
