    Just checked the recent traffic and 84 of the last 100 posts are in the USA Thread and that doesn't mean that 16 were about Thailand because only 8 were. I guess anyone thinking of joining Thai360 would take a look and realise that it's not about Thailand and just move on! Sad. Is it really worth keeping going when 84% of the traffic is 3 or 4 guys having pointless arguments about USA politics?!

    Looking at the polls, Biden is playing smart. Just stay out of the way and let Trump lose it. The way it looks its a landslide victory for Biden, still 4 months is a long time in politics.

    No one knows Biden's plan because he doesn't have one. He's fulfilling a lifetime dream. To be President. That said, and as bad of a candidate he is, he is leading nationally over Trump by 8 - 9 percent. This has similarities to 2016. Trump was such a terrible candidate, anyone should have been able to beat him. Trump has never gotten over 50% of approval and didn't get 50% of the popular vote. I think the country is tired of Trump. He's constant drama. In bad times you want stability and leadership. We don't have that and the people are looking at Biden's staff, if not him personally. Reagan's staff was strong and people had faith in it even with him as a figurehead. Trump's staff are sycophants. They are there to serve his needs not the country, not even the party, but his own personal greed and insecurities. https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/why-youre-not-hearing-about-bidens-economic-plan-144915816.html

    This case illustrates why the police in America have moved dangerously close to a significant portion of the population feeling they are an illegitimate entity. The police get a 'no knock warrant', enter the wrong home, unnanounced, shoots a naked woman in her own bed, her partner fires back thinking its a home invasion, shoots a cop and the victim is being prosecuted?! Instead of a mea culpa afterwards said police department not only feel fully justified are outraged, the victim is not remanded without bail. It boggles the mind. This is not just unique to Louisville, Ky, this could have played out in NYC, LA, Orlando, and the same result. Defunding the police may be a batshit crazy idea but what led people there? The notion didn't come out of a void. The police are so emboldened, so confident that not only the law, but morals and ethics don't apply to them. So, I look what led us to a significant number of Americans saying 'Enough, get rid of them', and take their chances with the bad guys out there because at least they have a fighting chance.

    I will credit Trump with being serious about taking on China. I don't think Hillary would have been as motivated and I don't think Biden will if he wins. That said, its Trump's execution that is not good. For a person who is supposedly the king of deals. So, I think Trump should be applauded for taking on China in earnest. He just isn't capable of pulling it off. https://www.rawstory.com/2020/06/trump-adviser-says-his-china-trade-deal-has-collapsed-and-spins-a-wildly-dangerous-conspiracy-theory/

    With Thai spouses is unclear, does that mean on marriage visa or just showing marriage papers. I have friends overseas married to Thai but no Visa, and people in Thailand on Retirement Visa, due to less paperwork, than a marriage Visa

    There are a great many people who are suspicious of W.H.O. Trump isn't the only one. Any international organization, has some issues. The Olympic committee members regularly take bribes. IMF, World Bank, WHO, none were ever seen as pristine organizations. So, I'm not sure the point? As for Germany, I'm assuming that the point is similar to the biblical verse regarding take the splinter out of your own eye. Again, all nations are not pristine. I'd love to hear one that is. I'm sure if you go to Norway or any nation ranked as the happiest, the people will complain to you about something. America has marketed itself as a nation of diversity and harmony. Its always marketed itself as a land of immigrants. Not many countries have.

    Trump has access to everything Obama did. Including classified information. The fact that Trump hasn't been able to expose any bombshell items either overtly or leaked, tells you how clean Obama's administration was. If Biden is elected, I hope he exposes the outright illegalities. He probably won't but I'm hoping so. I would be shocked if Trump didn't try to destroy evidence prior to leaving.

    No problem Mao Zedong managed at least 20 Million during the cultural revolution. My Brother in Laws Mother, and her family, survived the cultural revolution. She was (rest her soul) Catholic and English Educated in Shanghai, just the type of people Mao did not need. The family travelled all the way down to Hong Kong and she got a job at the British Embassy. As a teenager I used o spend hours discussing all things China / Asia with her and I was fascinated, it is because of thes discussions why I ended up in Asia.

    Okay, just did some quick "'googling", its something a few council members propose but my firm view is its purely rhetoric. Its not going to happen. They also have proposed an alternative, which, if enacted, may or may not work. https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/city-council-announces-intention-to-disband-minneapolis-police-department Minneapolis is a major city, on a small scale, in very small communities, you can't tell if they have police because its so peaceful. The suburban town I went to HS in was like that. You didn't see the police. It was an upper middle class community and I saw the local police the most at football games and basketball high school games for crowd control, etc and for the annual town parade. In a large major city, my view is we have stop using the police as a de facto tax department. The police is not there only to 'serve an protect' and in truth they are protecting businesses, which has never changed. The police has also been charged with generating revenue by writing tickets and as well as to fulfill the state's contractual obligation to fill private prisons. I've posted 2 links that address both. The police will prey on the most vulnerable area of the city to fulfill this because its easier to do so. The police in Tallahassee, Florida will go to the Perkins and Falls Chase areas (those are the poorest areas of the city) to look for drug arrest, which will be pot instead of the target rich frat row at Florida State University where they openly smoke pot and tons of underage drinking. I know this personally from going to parties there while I was in college and our track team visited the city. We may not agree on disbanding the police but its Minneapolis' own fault for what seems a crazy idea to even be contemplated. The city has never convicted a police officer for any shooting until Somali American officer Noor and his case was far less convincing than other shootings. The shooting of Castile, who had his girlfriend and her daughter in the car and he advised the cop he had a registered firearm and was shot multiple times for going for his permit. Not sure how that is less convincing than Noor, who shot an Aussie woman in the dark in an alley, after she banged on the car while he and his partner was answering a possible robbery. So, for me, we must be angry at city government and police for the buildup to this even being considered.

    For years Immigration has been telling us to do our 90-day "probation officer" report on line. The only problem is that 9 times out of 10, the damned link won't work. Now they are saying our visas and 90-day report period has been extended to 31 July. Can't you just picture the crowds descending on Immigration on that day? Also, the government is talking about allowing the bars, MPs etc to reopen. Problem is no flights are allowed into Thailand, so it will be up to the locals and expats to go to them.

    Fiery Jack by a country mile. Only other writer that came close was his mate Muff Richardson that also posted once or twice. Oh, and of course that brilliant nutcase Mao Mark (?) from about thirty years ago. That character SileakHunt was very wonderful too. I liked him. What happened to Fiery Jack? He hasn’t posted on here for ages. I hope he’s okay. Jack 🤯

    T,was funny, being a hard up Northerner with dubious ways of making a living meeself reminded me of life 30 Years ago. A major error in the Shows title, Brassic is Cockney Rhyming Slang, “Borassic Lint” Skint, which I presume it refers to. Rhyming Slang is not used Oop Norf and in Lancashire Brassic is slang for very cold, taken from “cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey”
