  2. But what would you know! The "Internet" knows the "truth" 5555555 Sorry I never made it up over the weekend, I almost got there last night, but was distracted, I did literally bump into DDDave at 2am on the street.
  3. They where quite short - so Later with on 't' is acceptable
  4. I think it's gone down! Mark, is there a happy hour, i con't remember. I walked to bar 4 today in my kenti shirt to make you jelous but i got distracted at fortune.
  5. Didn't Charlies legal problems with hookers happen BEFORE West Wing????
  6. No other internet around that was visible to the tourists, It would be hard to drink at 50 baht per 15 minutes in Bar 4 - fun to try i guess
  7. Thankfully no Lady Boys in Bar 4~! I will go back again tonight, this time without escorts I think.
  8. Paddy was waiting at the bus stop with his mate when a lorry went by loaded up with rolls of turf. Paddy said, 'I gonna do that when I win lottery' 'What's dat, says his mate. 'Send me lawn away to be cut'.
  9. No - If politicians and commentators didn't run around with death imagery, then maybe, just maybe things might not get so bad.
  10. http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2011/1/10/935177/-Tea-party-group-fundraises-off-of-Giffords-shootings The Palin “crosshairs†ad is here: http://media.photobucket.com/image/take%20back%20the%2020%20abc/josh_painter/sarahpac-20-300.jpg Not the way back in time web archive doesn't archive Palin's web site . . . . . smart move on Palin's adviser's. The Joe Manchin ad (literally shooting a scoped rifle at “cap and tradeâ€Â) is here: The gun movement is taking this as a lesson that reps should have guns http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/01/2-reps-say-theyll-now-carry-guns-for-protection.php http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/matt-taibbi-the-crying-shame-of-john-boehner-20110105?page=4 Ohio Democrat, Steve Driehaus, clashed repeatedly with Boehner before losing his seat in the midterm elections. After Boehner suggested that by voting for Obamacare, Driehaus "may be a dead man" and "can't go home to the west side of Cincinnati" because "the Catholics will run him out of town," Driehaus began receiving death threats, and a right-wing website published directions to his house. Driehaus says he approached Boehner on the floor and confronted him. "I didn't think it was funny at all," Driehaus says. "I've got three little kids and a wife. I said to him, 'John, this is bullshit, and way out of bounds. For you to say something like that is wildly irresponsible.'" Driehaus is quick to point out that he doesn't think Boehner meant to urge anyone to violence. "But it's not about what he intended  it's about how the least rational person in my district takes it. We run into some crazy people in this line of work." Driehaus says Boehner was "taken aback" when confronted on the floor, but never actually said he was sorry: "He said something along the lines of, 'You know that's not what I meant.' But he didn't apologize." Timeline http://hillbillyreport.org/diary/2391/palin-doesnt-reload-she-retreats "inspired" events over the past couple of years: * Mar. 2009 - Michele Bachman (R-MN) states that she wants the citizens of her state "armed and dangerous". * Aug. 2009 - someone dropped a gun from their pants at a Giffords town hall meeting in Arizona. * Jan. 2010 - Sharron Angle gives famous "second amendment remedies" speech, and also states "we have to take Harry Reid out." * Mar. 2010 - Tom Perillo's (D-VA) brother came home to find a severed gas line after Tea Partiers posted his address online, thinking it was the Congressman's address. * Mar. 2010 - Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said that the windows of her Niagara Falls office were broken and she received voicemail referencing snipers. * Mar. 2010 - Eric Cantor (R-VA) discovers that even Republicans aren't immune to having their office windows shot out.

The pattern follows the successful anti-abortion campaign. The anti-abortion campaign publishes the home addresses of doctors, involves threats as well as shootings, and has, by one count, eliminated abortions in 87 percent of counties in the U.S. the anti-abortion campaign even uses anthrax letters. http://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/positions/anti-choice-actions-clinic-violence-787.htm http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/02/no-choice-87-of-us-counti_n_210194.html Westboro Baptists Thank God For Giffords Shooting, Will Picket Funerals http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/01/westboro_baptists_thank_god_for_giffords_shooting_will_picket_funerals.php "God Sent The Shooter" To quote another friend "It reminds me of the vitriol prior to the American Civil War. The socio-economic-political (SEP) similarities as well, encompassing a bevy of issues unbounded by geography."
  11. They could have just said "We have young girls who are dumb and willing to do anything"
  12. Plus he was escorted by two lovely young "demarKation" guards!
  13. Well we had to sit with the boss last night as there was no other seats free! Looking at the crowd vast majority where tourists, so it should stay busy for a while i think.
  14. No - but you can't miss it, about 50 metres after Nana Hotel in Soi 4, same side, look for bright neon "4" signs
  15. <> Interesting you write that as I was about to write something similar/ I was surprised when I first dabbled in politics how little the politician did, without the advisers, minders, writers etc. We don't vote for anyone anymore, rather a facade behind which is who knows what. One of Fords first things was in the car on the way to be sworn in he was given a 4 page memo "What to do when first in office" by an adviser, he glanced at it and scrawled "OK" At least Nixon had some personal vision,
  16. Much better than the USA thread I must say!
  17. No i disagree. I don't case that on kennedy's but rather on a number of usa government election scholarship people i've spoken with on both sides of politics. sLet's take again nixon seeing as i am studying him now. Many commentated that he was so stupid not to burn the tapes. They often said if it was a shakesphere play he would be caught with the tapes. He had clear escape. He never acted. Ford is seen as a sad stupid character. But He never wanted to be president. He had no idea what to do, and ironically was more loyal than most nixon people, even though they kept him on the outer. One of ford's first questions was to ask of haig, how and what can a president pardon? Given every rat was deserting nixon, this is in hindsight and in non of my material, seen as a rather touching question.
  18. What's interesting for a non usa person reading about the nixon impeachment is it highlights very clearly, more than any thing else, the difference between a westminster parliament and a usa republic/monarchy. I've had the usa system described as a non hereditary monarchy, there are strong signs that lazyphil would agree if he studied this. I am leaning to this definition of the usa system. Is a republic a non hereditory monarchy?
  19. Because I ALWAYS said there SHOULD BE ONE!!! And keep the USA stuff here. The great fear Kissinger had was that he'd be asked if he had tapes, Haig even helped set them up, who of course became CoS to Nixon.
