    The love of power

    I was amused tonight to see the usual shit on the TV broadcasting yet another sucess story - The electric Train airport Link.

    They had this old twat in his nice white uniform, like a navy admiral, shoulder pips, the whole works, like a 5 star general. trying to bestow the benefits of the new rail link.

    I thought about a couple of questions.

    What does all of this pathetic little mans regalia mean?....do meter readers in the UK have a 5 star dress code?

    He had paratroopers wings on his nice white suit - maybe he was qualified to "Swoop" in on faulty cables?

    He then had enough brass on his shoulders to sink him if he fell asleep in the bath. What is this for? Do EGAT have generals and colonels?

    Then, proudly displayed on his 70 year old pigeon chest was enough coulours to shame a rainbow, an ex Vietnam Veteran or any poor fucker that survived the 2nd World War! But these decorations were pinned to a Thai! An Electricity Company employee!

    What on earth did he get these decorations for and what on earth do they mean?

    Order of The VOLT?
    Royal and Regal Defender of The Ampere?
    Member of La "Resistance" - the "Omega" decoration!
    Bravery under the face of High Voltage Lines?
    Valour in jointing a cable?
    "Impeding" current supply?
    The Royal diode medal - 'Rectifying" unfair AC voltage?
    Supplying a consistent 220V Supply in the face of messy wiring?
    Tracing a connection through the spaghetti cabling?
    Or sucking up someones arse that was probably important campaign medal....

    I mean what the fuck - when an electrician gets dressed up like a fucking 5 star general, why do the Thais not see through these ridiculous TWATS, it truly will take a revolution to clean this fucked up place up!

    Tell you what, working on the power grid in Pattaya should win you a medal. Have you seem one of those transformers explode. MESSY.
    Seriously though I agree.
    Perhaps he was a "Mega" hero, one of the AVO 8.

    Actually, ant is quite interesting - I wronged him earlier in some other posts, but he kind of makes sense. (in a weird sort of way)

    I take little offence at what people post about me, I probably ask for it at times...
    But what gets me is, in the years that I have been here, you explain your observations on the likes of these Militaristic Fuckers that enjoy some sort of power trip, and feel the need to behold themselves before eveyone in a uniform like a soldier.

    And when you question the Thais, they think generally the same as you and me...."What's it all about" but then you step out of the picture, and away they go on fucking auto pilot believeing everything they just laughed at????

    I truly believe that in the next 10 years, all of us foreigners will be expelled from here regardless of our marriage status or whatever, they are a fucked country, and are slowly closing the doors, probably to "SAVE FACE", they are losing money hand over fist with tourism, they are going to get screwed by every country they borrow money from for their bailout, and gradually, they will become so shy, so lost in the KRENG JAI of it all, that they simply give up on the outside world and close the doors. A little bit of Pol Pot, North Korea all rolled into one. and Abhisit burning at the stake as the sacrificial sheep thet led them down this road...the rest of my thoughts, I cannot put into writing as I don't fancy a spell in jail under the LM laws!

    I grew up in the '60's and '70's...with the TV at that time. Does anyone remeber Mork and Mindy?
    It reminds me of Morks' report each episode, living here... Mork callin Orsen... mork calling Orsen...
    Well Mork what did you learn toaday?
    Well, I learned that thai people of little education can be promoted to very high status in jobs they know nothing about purely because of who they know or who they are realted to.

    Is that all mork?

    no, it has become clear that incompetence and stupidity are no restriction on your ability to progress, it seems that only a thing called MONEY and a thing called CONNECTIONS are the only relevant things involved in self promotion and self advancment.

    And, they have this thing called "CORRUPTION" it seems like a widely practiced belief, that enables them to bypass all morals and ethics, an amazing thing, quite unique! And the other thing they seem to live in fear of, apart from ghosts and spirits is a thing called bhuddism, which initially seems to be some sort of spiritual saviour, but when closely examined, is yet another fear mechanism that is used against the people, a bit like "catholisism, Christianity etc. where they are burned in hell forever when they don't fall in line. it eventually seems to be used to extort money and money from the poorest people, and make them fall in line...it's a funny world down here!

    Mork signing out!

    This is one of the reasons why I will not enter a serious relationship with one, the other reasons are clarified in the rest of your rant.

    Sadly yes, it is as clear but not exclusive to Thailand. Here it's just blatantly obvious to us whereas back in farangland the same primative greed runs the show but with thicker wool pulled over the eyes of the meek.

    Sounds rough, but I can't really disagree. They sure as hell show no sign of learning how to deal with the world, or operate outside of their fucked up environment where everything has to be hidden coz it stinks so much. So a veneer of false face is all they got.

    There is a pretty lady working at Ranong Immigration ( mid 20's I would think ) who has a few medal ribbons and a parachute badge on her well filled blouse .
    A year or so whilst I was waiting for the ferry for Myanmar I was chatting to her and asked her what it was like to jump from an aircraft.
    Answer ( giggle) I don't know - I have only been in an aeroplane twice when I flew to Hat Yai to see my mother !!!

    They do love uniforms.

    The 'love of power' really rings true for all humans, as much as we like to kid ourselves that the 'power of love' is what makes life worth living... We know money doesn't bring happiness, yet we are helplessly drawn to power like moths to a lightbulb.

    Not all, but most, granted. Realisation removes that crap. I thought Buddha promoted this vision but it hasn't worked, has it (rhetorical).

    Meant to add insight with wit regarding Missismiggins' posts. More than you can say for his detractors; miggins pricks pretentiousness whereas his critics are pretentious pricks.....(yes, I knicked that gag off Alexei Sayle, but it fits here).

    you are entitled to your opinion, and your sound judgement

    where does Mary come into it? were we talking about sex?

    as for Miggins, he seems to get so angry about such small things that are out of his control, and most of them do not actually affect him directly

    he will have a heart attack if he continues in that vein
    I have reported your post

    Well I'm not 100% immune, but I have never been money driven which is why I live in small room out of town instead of a penthouse in Hong Kong getting sucked off by Salma Hayek.

    dunno why andy seems to get so offended at miggins' rants - to me they are semi tounge in cheek and an enjoyable poke at thais - maybe it is the language used , but this is not a PC forum , so who gives a fcuk.

    Dogcatcher...! Heard a transformer go off in Bangla once n thought a bomb had gone off, just outside the old Blaney Stone. All the staff picked up the TV n till and ran toward the sea. (Knocked all the power off on the same side for a hour or two)

    Medals = stars as when you were a six year old at school, so as nobody in Toyland has got past the age of 12....BLA .. BLA...So with his new Lego train set the boy has to wear is party frock (Medals n all)

    Its the same for DrAndy. Children crave attention-good or bad. The "boy" gave me a red after the third post...Actually it was'nt me that wrote it but my laptop is in a public place and someone that knows the "boy" replied to him. As for me D A I'VE NOT GOT STARTED YET......shout shout.

    I suppose I cannot forget his original rants, which were extreme racism

    his newer versions are a milder form of racism, and they do make me laugh at him a little more

    like this one, he gets all worked up about some poor guy dressed up like a hotel commisionaire

    nothing to do with power, almost the opposite, really

    I tend to agree, but he suddenly seems to have quite the fan club. Also I'm suspicious of a poster who randomly capitizes words to make his point, tis as if he is worried that simple use of the english language may not suffice...

    I think the general rule is the more they have the more money you have to pay him if you piss him off or need a "favour".

    Ive seen posters for local elections where theres someone whos barely out of their early twenties yet have more decorations than a WWII veteran.
