Don't waste your time GogoBar, we are clearly dealing with a couple of deeply deranged nutters here, treat them with the disdain and contempt that they deserve.
Whts the matter MC, cant take it? You think its funny when you do it to others but when the tables turned then its all different isnt it. How did it feel, to see me acting as ignorant and stupid and disrespectful to you as y ou to others. You're right, it is retarted isnt it? Funny thing, you were the teacher, I learned it all from you, in matter of fact I copied you, so really, you called yourself stupid and retarted, LMAO.
What you trying to do with gogobar, recruit him/she/it? Was I getting on your nerves that bad? Damn! This is fun. I gotta keep doing this, yep, everytime I see you on here. Hey, I'm just returning the favor. You follow me around so much I figured you like my company, so here I am. And Im going to keep doing it till you literally hate the name LEVI!

Sure he is. But thats okay, we both know differently. I, as all others who know a little about thailand and its king, understand why you wouldnt (couldnt) down him on a public forum, prison aint a nice place to be, or worse, dead. Who know, down him, he might sell you into the sex trade.
I 've notice how well and carefully you have chosen your words, unlike when you down others nations or leaders. I'm disappointed in you, doesnt your king deserve the same loud mouth critizeing from you as you give to others? Isnt your king worth your all? Yet you hold back.
And yes, I got your slur about our president. But you see, watch this,' president barrack obama is a nerd, a retard, a crook, gay, she-male, theif, crook, murderer,--------see, I can say all those things, even if all of them or none of them is true. Can you say that about your king?
You once asked me what was so great about western nations, what freedoms do we have that you dont. Well, I just showed you one, unless you want to prove me wrong, so what about it? Any cut downs for your corrupt military and its king?

At the elevators there is a notice. To paraphrase it reads
Any Foreigner who causes discord between the peoples of the Kingdom will be imprisoned for 5 years!

But it is not just the King. The common man here will kill you himself if you say anything disrespectfull about the King.
They love their king. There is no doubt about it.

You see the various Kings have managed to keep Thailand the only country in the region never to be Colonised. No mean feat.

But if you want some words here are some that I have them singing to now.

Evrywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
Cause summers here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band
Cause in sleepy london town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band
Cause in sleepy london town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! said my name is called disturbance
Ill shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n roll band

There's no place for a street fighting man

Yeah, they love their king, better yet, I bet they love life, they dont want their families hurt, killed, sold into slavery, so they keep their mouth shut. Come on gogobar, quit playing us for fools, this is the 21st century, we all know about your king.
So the notice on the elevator is basically telling people to keep their mouth shut about the king, lmao, that says alot there all by itself.
Still trying to weasle out of the pan huh? So your king is perfect? No faults, runs the kingdom like a God? Sounds about what the people of north korea thinks about their ruler, and he's starveing them to death. You people are pathetic.

Well Levi, they dont play compromise solution.
They move ahead. They grow.
They are a nation of similar race that are united under a Monarch that they love and can identify with.

The place runs like clockwork. When it doesnt there is a coup and new elections are called for.
It is exactly what the gunnuts call for in the USOFA. A right wing coup and a return to conservative values.

Are you a street fighting man, Levi?

"Domestic violence is epidemic, everywhere and under the radar," says Garen Wintemute, director of the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California, Davis Medical Center.
Domestic abuse is not more prevalent in the United States than in other developed countries. But in the United States, the availability of firearms makes it far more lethal. When a gun is involved, the risk of a fatal outcome is 12 times greater than in domestic assaults involving other weapons or bodily force, research shows.
A 2002 study of 25 high-income countries, from the Harvard School of Public Health, found that the U.S. rate of female homicide was five times higher than that of all the other countries combined
