Category Archives: Thoughts from the expats corner

Jack Corbett has now been living full time in Thailand as an expat. This category encompasses a wide range of thoughts and subjects from the perspective of being in a strange land thousands of miles from the United States where the culture oftentimes seems to be 180 degrees apart from the values and beliefs of the West.

The Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer who disappeared out of my life forever

Nine years ago the sexiest most beautiful Beach Road Freelancer disappears from Pattaya. And she’s been off my radar ever since. The last night I saw her she was absolutely terrified of her violent Thai boyfriend. Who had to have been tied into the Thai mafia. I am certain she would have contacted me after that fabulous last night we had together in the Girl Beer Bar. Then later on in my condo when I found out that she was really in some deep shit. So why am I thinking of her now? Nine years have passed.

My favorite viking friend, Per, from Norway at the Girl Beer Bar

I am an old fart now. But I was an old fart even back then. Yet even now I oftentimes have this overwhelming desire to show off. Like last week when I performed a pole dance in a Naklua Soi 18 bar.  And put it on you tube.

So why do I want to talk about this Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer now? For one thing we did this incredible pole dance together nine years ago.

Or at least I thought so. Perhaps it was all the tequila we had together.

But no. It wasn’t just the tequila I had. The German bar manager was so impressed by us that he came over and bought us both drinks.

Later he took me and my girlfriend up to show us his living quarters in the Girl Beer Bar. But I didn’t have a girlfriend on that last night I was with the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer. The girl and I were so whacked out that he never forgot us. We were having so much fun together. And then, the next morning, I got her a taxi. And never saw her again.

A lot has happened since we did that pole dance nine years ago

The Girl Beer Bar owner and manager died. In Germany. The German’s partner who was celebrating his 80th birthday at that big party at the German Girl Beer Bar just died 2 weeks ago. The Thai mafia murdered Edie. She had owned the Malai Bar. They shot her in the head on Sukamvit Road because she owed the wrong people money. After that a restaurant owner friend of mine also got mixed up with the Thai Mafia. But I’m not going to talk about that here.

So now I feel compelled to tell the story about the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer and how she disappeared on me

Part I 12 years ago

I spotted her on Beach Road, across the street from Mike’s shopping mall, leaning against a tree. The freelancer was slender, with a firm belly, and very full breasts. They weren’t large. Or bulbous, and I found out later there was no silicon either. They were just bursting out of her slender frame. But now that I think about it from hindsight, I think she must have been lactating with her breasts full of milk.

God, did I want to take them into my mouth. So I took her back to my room and paid her for short time. I think it was only 500 baht back then. But it was the best 500 baht I ever paid. And it was the worse. It just depends on how you look at it.

She stayed in my room for just 20 minutes. It took only that long for me to come. And she wouldn’t let me as much as touch those glorious breasts of hers. She wouldn’t let me eat her either. And the bitch couldn’t wait to get away from me and get on with her next customer down by Mike’s shopping mall.

I took her back to my room two or three times. But it was always the same. “Don’t touch. And Keep your tongue inside your own mouth.”

That girl had total control of me. She was a complete bitch. But she was the sexiest girl I ever saw free lancing down on Beach Road. By a factor of ten.

Four years I meet the beautiful Beach Road Freelancer again

I had promised my pals that I’d meet them at the Beer Garden for beers at 8:30, and then we’d hit a few Walking Street go go bars together. Three years earlier I had bought a condo down on the beach in Naklua. So I tried to get a ten baht taxi on Naklua Road. But seven or eight Songtaews passed me. Their drivers totally not interested in picking me up. This pissed me off completely.

“Fuck it. I’m not getting any taxi tonight,” I told myself. I’m walking all the way even though it’s over two miles to the Beer Garden. Not one of these lazy songtaew drivers is making one dime off me tonight.”

With nasty thoughts in mind about all the terrible things I wanted to befall all Pattaya taxi drivers, I set out to the Beer Garden, running most of those two miles. While walking part of the way. And then I jogged up to the platform across from Mike’s shopping mall where a lot of free lancers hang out looking for customers. Then I heard one of the prostitutes calling out my name.

I stopped right in my tracks. Suddenly a trim attractive free lancer stood directly in front of my path.

“Jack. Do you remember me?” the girl asked.

I couldn’t believe it. Here she was, looking almost the same as she did four years ago.

And she remembered my name. And here I had been thinking that she despised me. Me and all her other customers. She looked pretty much the same except that her breasts looked a lot smaller now.

I told her I had bought a condo in Naklua since last seeing her. She acted surprised and pleased. I suppose she never expected me to put my roots down in Pattaya. Thinking I was just another tourist four years ago while I was renting a modest room near Soi 6.

I wanted her again. But I had promised my friends Id be meeting them for sure. And did. Was only ten minutes late too. In spite of walking and running the entire way. I mean “Who in the hell needs taxis anyway? Lazy motherfuckers.

But I managed to give the girl my phone number. And I told her I’d be finishing the go go bars around 11 when she promised to call me.

Good to her word she called me a little after 11 while I was taking a piss in a go go bar toilet.

Forty-five minutes later she was waiting for me just one block from my condo in front of the 7-11.

I had no live in girlfriend then and was paying go go girls 1000 baht to visit me at my condo

Back then I had six different girls from Super Girls Go Go stay with me in my condo for short times. But oftentimes they’d stay for several hours. I was also seeing a Soi Six girl who I was paying 800 baht to visit me. But like most Thai sex workers she turned out to be pretty much of a liar. But no matter. I had them coming and going back in those days.

She is not the beautiful Beach Road Freelancer
My favorite girl from Super Girls at my condo.

I finally settled on a favorite go go dancer from Super Girls who eventually wound up getting big tits from silicon and company. Sometimes I’d have her meet me for a drink or two at the Girl Beer Bar before taking her back to the condo.

But my favorite Girl of them all turned out to be the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer

Yeah, I know. She was a complete bitch. But times had been a changing. I had my own condo now. So the girl knew I was for real. Staying in Pattaya all year long. Year after year.

She started staying with me for an hour at a time. This went on for a couple of weeks and then we’d start spending more time together out on my deck. Drinking and smoking cigarettes together. I’d be seeing her a couple of times a week. While paying her 800 baht.

She spoke much better English than most of the other girls. And she liked smoking cigarettes and so did I. So it was all so natural for us to just sit out there in the night smoking, and drinking whatever I had handy. But the more comfortable she got hanging around with me at my condo, the less comfortable she was getting with her situation.

She had a Thai boyfriend. Who oftentimes beat her, and who was taking most of her money she was getting off her customers.

She started telling me that he had started following her. And that he knew exactly where I lived. As for me, I had long ago figured out that most of those Beach Road freelancers have really nasty Thai Mafia boyfriends.

She liked me a lot. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be spending all that time with me. So I was figuring that we would last for a very long time together. Perhaps forever. But it would not last.

Our last night together

We had just had sex together in the master bedroom in my condo when I suddenly got the bright idea of taking her to the Girl Beer Bar.

Several of the ladies from Girl Beer Bar

A group of Germans ran the Girl Beer Bar. It was our absolute favorite bar in the entire world. The Girl Beer Bar had a good handful of pretty girls who used to dance out on the sidewalk in front of the place. Gus and I used to buy one or two bottles of Thai whiskey and then we’d sit out in front of the bar with several of the girls who we’d ply with alcohol.

Girl Beer Bar ladies drinking Thai whiskey at a table right on the sidewalk. Gus and I used to buy bottles of Thai whiskey from a nearby 7-11, and then we’d give it to the girls to loosen up.

The mamasan didn’t mind that we were getting all those bottles of Thai whisky on the cheap at a nearby 7-11. And neither did the German owners.

I used to bring girls into the Girl Beer Bar from the outside and ask my favorite girls what they thought of the girls I was taking home with me. But this night I really didn’t care what anyone thought of the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer. She was the epitome of cool. And I was so happy to have her with me.

Pole Dancing at the Girl Beer Bar with the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer

Nine years later, this is me, doing a pole dance at a Naklua Bar.  I can still do it, but that last night with the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer, I was much better

********

The Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer was scared to death of her Thai boyfriend. Which was nothing new. But now she was certain that he had her under surveillance every time she visited me. Tonight she was in no hurry to leave me, so I asked her to spend the whole night at my condo.

Then I took her to the Girl Beer Bar. She struck it off extremely well with my bar girl friends there. So it didn’t take long before one or two of the bar girls started drinking with us. And the music was very good that night. Which was nothing unusual. It was a mix of Golden Oldies and contemporary music with a good beat.

Pai of Girl Beer Bar Fame. Pai was my leading confidant as she would always tell me what she thought of the girls I brought in from outside the Girl Beer Bar

I couldn’t believe it, but before long the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer and I were dancing together. While I started pulling out some dancing moves that I never knew I had.

She was a great dancer. And she was so self assured. I knew right then that she must have once been a go go dancer.

And not the run of the mill go go girls but one of the top girls wherever she worked.

By now we were drinking a lot. Beer and hard liquor. And certainly several shots of tequila. The other girls were really taking to her. Then suddenly I got the idea to try a little pole dancing.

Before the Germans got the Girl Beer Bar it had been a go go bar. There had been one of two tables with dancing poles in their centers. But the owners had removed the tables and poles to offer more space to their customers. But the center stage still remained with its pole.

It didn’t take much for me to get the beautiful beach road freelancer to join me on that center stage. By this time I was half drunk and 100 percent full of myself.

I had the number one girl in the entire bar with me. And this number one girl was enjoying herself immensely. As inebriated as I was, I knew I could still acquit myself well on a dancing pole. I had done it so many times before back in the United States. Most of the American strippers I knew couldn’t do it at all. But some could. And many of those far better than I’d ever be able to do it. Yet a lot of the good pole dancers had a lot of fun watching me do the pole. And showing me their best pole dancing techniques.

So here I was at the Girl Beer Bar. In Thailand no less. And I did it. Pulling myself up high on the pole I hung there by the pressure of my feet and one arm. And then I started twirling around the pole in a circle. Making several revolutions before I gravity finally put me on the platform.

Several of the Germans sitting close to the stage went wild. And so did my companion, the Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer.

Oh we were great together that night. But it was now her turn to strut her stuff. To show what she was really made of.

Since I had already figured that she had once been a top go go dancer, it didn’t surprise me to see her doing so well on the pole. And then up on that pole we climbed. Together. The rest is a blur. It was so long ago, and we both had a lot to drink that night. But when we finished our antics on the dancing pole, one of the Germans stood up and started clapping. The man then bought us both shots of tequila.

“That was wonderful,” the German told us. “You both were terrific.”

The German never told me who he was, other than his name. But it turned out he was the manager. I think the old German who owned all those restaurants and the go go in Bangkok owned 50 % of the Girl Beer Bar. Then there was Arno, who owned a piece of the Heidelburg Restaurant. And one or two others. But Walter was the general manager, and although he probably owned just a small piece of the bar, his fellow co-owners gave him several rooms upstairs that he made into an apartment. The rooms had been short time rooms when the bar had been a go go bar. Later on Walther would proudly show off his apartment rooms to my girlfriend and I.

The Beautiful Beach Road Freelancer and I had spent a fabulous night together

But it was our last night. I’d never see her again. Not ever.

The next morning she got me up real early. Then she asked me to get her a taxi. At first I thought she wanted a songthaew. Or motorbike taxi. Then she told me how scared she was. So we went to the hotel next door where I got her a real taxi that had blackened windows. NO one could see who she was in that taxi. Which had been her whole point. It was the first and only time I ever got a Thai sex worker a regular taxi. All of them, were only too happy to have me pay for their motorbike taxi rides home.

She had told me she was leaving her Thai boyfriend. Which she had certainly tried to do. Otherwise she would never have insisted on getting a regular taxi. After that I could never reach her on her telephone. I can’t remember, but I must have tried messaging her once or twice. And she never called me again. Or sent me any text messages.

But we had established a solid connection together. A connection that we solidified when we did that pole dance together. I still think of her a lot. Because she was one helluva cool lady.

A  lot of good things came out of  the Girl Beer Bar.  Here’s a few links you might want to check out

American Cuban rapprochement time to open the door

It is about time for American Cuban rapprochement and Obama was just the right man to do it, with the help of Raol Castro.  As for me, I’m going to Cuba, if not this year, next year or the year after. Be sure of that.  I’m excited to see the American Cuban rapprochement develop.

American Cuban rapprochement initiated by Raol Castro and Obama

You should get just as excited as I am.  Cuba is right on our doorstep,

93 miles to be exact.  Yet for 50 years it’s been official American policy to consider Cuba to be an outlaw nation.  But we’ve had that all wrong just as we had it all wrong in Vietnam. Where over 60,000 American soldiers died as Americans killed over 1,000,000 Vietnamese.  As their Christian duty to save the world from the Communist scourge.  But what a difference forty years can make.  Communist, Capitalistic, or whatever we choose to call Vietnam today, it is rapidly been emerging as a prime trading partner of the U.S. and staunch political ally in Asia.

The main problem with American Cuban rapprochement is back in 1959 the United States chose the wrong side.

When it ignored Fidel Castro’s pleas for American assistance while he was consolidating his Revolution in Cuba.  The U.S. ignored Casto’s pleas for assistance so Fidel had only one choice.  Which was to turn to the Soviet Union.   Had we stood with Fidel, the entire course of Cuban-American relations would have taken a different course over the past 50 years.

There would have been no Cuban Missile crisis, no bay of Pigs–Cuba would never have been listed as a pariah nation.

Instead, Cuba would have become one of the prime tourist destinations for Americans seeking beautiful scenery and pristine beaches right on our doorstep.  The Cuban economy would have prospered while the whole course of American–Latin American relations would have turned out so much better for all concerned.

The same thing happened in Vietnam. When Ho Chi Minh turned to the United States for the support of a country he deeply admired.

And just as we did with Castro, we turned our back on Ho.  So he turned to the Soviet Union instead.

Once again, the result was a complete travesty of injustice with devastating results for both Vietnam and the United States.   Vietnam is still Communist, at least on paper, but now it’s one of the good guys.  So if you go to Vietnam now, the Vietnamese will consider you to be one of the good guys too.  After all, I’ve traveled to Vietnam four times.    Where I found the Vietnamese to be some of the most helpful friendly people in Asia.

But leave it to Obama to take the lead in the U.S. to get those doors open again.  I expected no less from the man.  Vietnam has finally become one of the good guys. I expect in a few years Cuba will become one of our most steadfast trading partners. Just as I believe Americans will finally recognize Obama as one of America’s greatest presidents.  It just takes a little time for History to sort these things out.

Best search engine for using Pattaya Expats Forum

You will find the Best search engine for the Pattaya Expats forum at its Alpha Productions web site.

 

Best search engine
Best search engine for this blog is the Alpha Productions web site.

The benefits for your going to alphapro.com are huge.

  • There’s hundreds of pages of content at alphapro.com including all content in this blog.  That’s because this blog is within the alphapro.com domain.
  • I’ve been working on the alphapro.com web site for  over 20 years.  Much of its content is adult related.
  • I used to get paid by Xtreme Magazine and other adult magazines but when I could not find a viable adult magazine covering the Midwest Clubs I decided to start my own.  I created The Looking Glass Magazine  as part of my alphapro.com web site.  The search box for this forum will not work for all that Looking Glass Magazine content.
  • After buying a condo in Thailand and moving here full time the content of the Looking Glass took on an Asian Thailand focus as I no longer was visiting the American strip clubs.
  • Most of the adult and Thailand content in the Looking Glass is not part of this blog.  The last articles in the Looking Glass were in December 2013.  From that date on this blog replaced the Looking Glass Magazine.

Let me give you several examples of why this is the Best search engine for the Pattaya Expats Forum

  1.  Go to alphapro.com.  Using the Google custom search box type in Thai women.  This search engine privatizes  Alpha Productions content over all other content.  Notice how much of this content takes you to this blog and also to the Looking Glass Magazine articles I did before I even started this blog.

2.  Go to alphapro.com.  Once again use the Google custom search box and type in nude wrestling.  Start clicking on the alphapro.com search engine results.  Choose Spew Wrestling at the Iowa Playhouse 

Okay.  I’m going to put one of the pictures right here for a sneak preview.

 

You won’t find these pictures in this  Pattaya Expats Forum.  Or anywhere else either.  I might be prejudiced but I think the Spew Wrestling venture that Big Daddy and Big Mike created were the finest nude wrestling spectacles of all time.

3.  Go to alphapro.com again and type into the search box Big Daddy.  Not only was Big Daddy the founder of Spew wrestling.  He’s a lifelong friend of mine and only a couple of weeks ago we were sitting together at ringside at the Pattaya Max Muay Thai stadium as I was shooting video of the fights there.  Big Daddy is truly significant to me, not just because he’s a very dear fiend of mine but also because he brought me to Thailand.    Notice among many of the Big Daddy results the Double Knockout article and you tube video that appears in this blog

4.  Once again go to alphapro.com and type into the search box Krabi.   In my opinion the Krabi area has the most beautiful beaches in Thailand and the world.  You will find a lot of my Krabi articles and pictures this way.

Alpha Productions is still here after 20 years

Nearly all the adult sites and strip clubs in the old days are gone.  Those were great days back then.  And Alpha Productions is no longer doing the adult stuff now that I’ve moved to Thailand.  But I’m still using professional cameras to create the best photography and video I can.  Most of the  strippers and feature entertainers I worked with in the old days are gone too.  Most are doing other things with their lives.  Many have died.  The strip club owners and top managers who were my friends have turned to other pursuits.  For example, Frank, who was the GM of the Platinum Club and  owner of Club 64 is now selling furniture (Frank will be successful whatever he does).  Big Daddy is focusing on mcing or doing voice overs for Professional Wresting.

Corey from Club 64
Yes. I shot a lot of the American girls nude. But I always tried to do my artistic best. The girl in the picture worked at Club 64. Frank who had been the absolute best manager I ever knew at Platinum Club and his wife had me shoot more than half a dozen of their girls. Frank’s wife (who had been assistant manager at Platinum) would work on a girl’s hair with a couple of the other girls, her outfit, makeup, etc for up to 2 hours in order to present the girl at her best. Getting to work with Frank and Sherry made me a much better photographer while enabling me to become much more adept in photo editing. This husband wife team were the most professional strip club managers I’ve ever encountered. I owe a lot to them.

I never shot porn by the way.

My goal has always been to be an artist.  I’ve always tried to present the adult entertainers I knew as beautiful women inside and out.

Aspen Reign Magician in Pursuit of Excellence

Aspen Reign superstar feature entertainer
I think my strength as a photographer (if I have any) is as an action photographer. When Aspen Reign took center stage to perform her shows she was an absolute dynamo. I would often shoot up to 1500 pictures in a single night at the feature entertainer showcases I covered. All the other feature entertainers would stop whatever they were doing to watch Aspen when it came time for her to perform her show. She was the maestro of all maestros

Aspen was absolutely wonderful.

One morning while I was staying at a hotel in Peoria, Illinois shooting a Pure Talent Agency Showcase, I went into Big Als early to have a cup of coffee.  A new girl looked a lot like Aspen.  During the evening performances this new entertainer kept trying to emulate Aspen’s style.  Even her hair style.  So here I am drinking my cup of coffee at Big Al’s and there’s a woman sitting at the bar without much makeup on.  I think it’s the new girl.  After we exchange a few remarks, the girl says to me:

“It’s me.  Aspen.”

We talk a bit more, and then Aspen tells me:

“I have been watching you when you are shooting all the other feature entertainers. ”

“Why are you watching me?” I reply.

“Because I want to see which entertainers interest you the most.  So I watch to see which feature entertainers you shoot the most of.”

That made my day.  Here was the biggest superstar of them all taking a professional interest in my photography.

Aspen Reign was simply incredible.  She truly deserved my calling her Magician in Pursuit of Excellence.

Best search engine to use for this blog

I wrote a lot of magazine articles about them.

As far as shooting their naked bodies?  Yes.  I did a lot of that.  Hopefully I have captured the beauty of the female form in my endeavors.  And I got paid for doing it.  Here in Thailand I never shoot nude pictures of Thai women.  In  the U.S. my photography and magazine articles helped the adult entertainers in their careers by increasing their marketability and earnings.

The number one reason why the  Best search engine is the google custom search engine on the main Alpha Productions web site

This is the Best search engine to use because it fuses all of the content in the Looking Glass online magazine with this blog and all that great adult content I used to do back in the United States.

Jack Corbett Asia Travelogue

The Jack Corbett Asia Travelogue is not a comprehensive travel site.  But it is completely objective due to my making no money whatsoever by sharing my travel experiences.

My purpose for integrating the Looking Glass Magazine with the Jack Corbett Funhouse blog is two fold.  First, my last issue of the Looking Glass Magazine was the Macau Hong Kong December 2013 issue.     The reason I stopped writing articles in the Looking Glass Magazine was 1.  I wanted to replace it with the Funhouse blog and 2.  My focus had completely changed from the American adult entertainment industry to becoming a Thailand Expat.

But there’s a lot of Asian travel  content in the Looking Glass Magazine.  And as the old saying goes, why reinvent the wheel?  I took hundreds of pictures in my Asian travels.  Most of them are in the Looking Glass.  And I spent a lot of time writing travel articles in the Looking Glass.

There are over 50 issues of the Looking Glass Magazine.  The Jack Corbett Funhouse blog is the Looking Glass Magazine’s replacement.  But there’s still one more reason for integrating the Looking Glass with the Jack Corbett Fun House blog.   Although I no longer have much interest in American strip clubs, many issues of the Looking Glass were all about American strippers, topless clubs, and major adult entertainment events I participated in as a professional photographer and writer.  For those who would like to enjoy all that adult content of the Looking Glass and my alphapro.com web site, this travel section of the Funhouse blog is perhaps the bridge that many of you have been waiting for.

Reintroducing the American Republican Party Cartoon Strip

I’m reintroducing the American Republican Party Cartoon Strip.  Why?  Because  of Trump the Rump, Vice President Mike (No Common Sense) Pence and other imbeciles ruling the U.S.

Meet the King Makers. These two Congressmen might have been elected by the people. But they are owned by Big Money

As the 2012 presidential election approached, I was so disgusted with the Republican Party’s sorry ass cast of candidates, I just had to do it.  It was my patriotic duty, even if I had virtually no talent as an artist.  So I created 25 cartoon strips ridiculing the Republican Party.

But now that we have Trump the Rump as President and Mike (No common sense) Pence as Vice President, it’s time to pull out that 2012 Republican party cartoon strip again.  But the last election was in 2016.  So—the past repeats itself.  Different Faces.  But it’s the same kind of nitwits all over again.

In the Republican Party Cartoon Strip you will be meeting

Fox News puppets Glen Beck and Sean Hannity
Roger the Dodge Ailes of False News, and his puppets, Glenny and Hanny
Is Fox News a propaganda arm of the Republican Party.  Hell yes. That’s why we call it Falso News
Rush Limbaugh
Rush Limblenuts
Sarah Palin cheerleader
Sarah Palin, who was McCain’s choice for vice president in 2012
John McCain
And meet Migrain
Grinchy who’s trying to make a come back in American politics

Herman Cain
Do not forget Pizza Man.  After all the Water Fountain  and Office Closet Girls haven’t.

Rick Perry
Perry looks all business. Resembles a movie star playing U.S. President
But his knowledge of the world is as limited as Trump the Rump’s
Milt Romney
Then there is Plastic Man Melt Romney whose vision for America is all over the place.
Let us not forget Sanitation Man Rick who will call upon religion to save us from ourselves
Born in a manger. He’s got God on his side

 

 

 

 

Trump’s medieval climate change Mindset

Trump is an American disaster and international embarrassment represented at its worse by Trump’s medieval climate change mindset.  Imagine China leading the world at fighting man made climate change.  This is like calling upon the fox to guard the hen house.   This is a huge strategic mistake of epic proportions as the New York Times warned in its June 1, 2017 editorial Trump Hands the Chinese a Gift:  The Chance for Global Leadership.

Trump's medieval climate change Mindset came later
I created this Trump cartoon in 2012 when we had the choice of not just one but 8 Republican Imbeciles to take us back to the Dark Ages.

Donald Trump is an imbecile.  And we Americans cannot say we haven’t been warned.

Trump's medieval climate change mindset
Thomas Friedman is a A three time Pulitzer Prize winning Journalist, Thomas Friedman writes a monthly editorial for the New York Times.

The U.S. should be taking Thomas Friedman’s advice on Climate Change

Three time Pulitzer prize winner Thomas Friedman is my favorite journalist.  He’s the main reason I subscribed to the New York Times instead of the Washington Post.  In his No 1 International best seller, Hot, Flat and Crowded,  Friedman lays out an entire blueprint that would  not just lead the U.S. to energy independence.   It would also enable the United States to become the world leader in green energy.  This would have enabled the U.S. to develop the technology, production and distribution to a huge industry that would enable the world to become a much greener planet.  This would create millions of jobs here in the United States.  But sadly, the United States has fallen way behind the rest of the developed world.

Our leaders are morally bankrupt with a crippled mentality of me first.  To hell with the rest of the country.

Trump’s medieval climate change mindset is a gift of world leadership to the Chinese

Today I am reading the Bangkok Post while drinking coffee in condo here in Thailand.  I am reading about how the Chinese will soon be building a high speed train system  here .  So what about our American engineers and business leaders, who are probably the best in the world?   Unfortunately the U.S. is not even a contender for showing the Thais how to build a high speed train system.  Now, the French have been quite good at developing some of the highest speed trains in the world.  And so are the Japanese.  Then there’s little countries like Denmark which will be 100 percent self sufficient in a few years.  High speed trains are a significant step in the green revolution’s combating man-made climate change.

But we got Donald Trump, who is on target for buying still more billions of dollars of nuclear weapons that we never needed in the first place.  And that hopefully we will never even contemplate using.  I guess that’s what Trump means when he says, “America First.”

The rest of the world is starting to view the U.S. with contempt

“What an idiot.” Hell, I was in a bar the other night.  Suddenly a drunken Englishman came in.  The man told me he was drunk, and then he started in on me about Trump.

So I told him, “I probably hate Trump even more than you do.    I don’t even want to talk about him.  Let’s talk about something else like beer, music and women.”

But the man never let up on me.  The wanker kept on winging about the American and English governments and how bad he thought Hillary Clinton was.  I kept telling him to shut up, but on and on he went until my Cambodian waitress gently took me over to another table, to keep me from punching the guy’s lights out.

Trump’s medieval climate change mentality will not only put the United States far behind many much more enlightened nations when it comes to combating man made climate change.  It also puts the United States at the back of the pack when it comes to meaningful world leadership.  Just as sad is the fact that most Americans view Trump’s medieval climate change mentality with disdain.  Unfortunately there is no way out of this abyss.

Vice President Mike Pence is every bit as much of a moron as Donald Trump.

June 3 on Fox News Mike Pence called the issue of climate change “a paramount issue for the left” as he sought to defend Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris agreement on climate change.

“It is “so refreshing to have a President who stands without apology … For America first”, Mr Pence said on Fox News’ Fox & Friends programme, saying he didn’t understand why climate change had become such a big issue for the Democrats and the left.”

The Republican Party’s defense of Trump’s medieval climate change mindset is indefensible

Anyone who defends Trump’s medieval climate change mindset is a regressive retard.  We can put Mike Pence at the top of the list.   This means impeachment of Trump is not an option, even if his Republican minions who hold majorities in both the House and Senate wanted to.

I would like to ask all the misinformed Americans who voted for the Republican Party to become better informed before they vote in the next election.  Unfortunately when it comes to U.S. world leadership and curbing the catastrophic effects of man-made climate change,  it is far too late for that.  But oh well, we will at least be able to exhaust our nation’s resources by  increasing the power of our nuclear arsenal. By allowing  Trump’s medieval climate change mentality to overcome their better judgement,  Americans now face two choices for self destruction.  Death by nuclear annihilation or man made climate change.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Playground ass whipping in Sergei Kovalev Andre Ward II

What happens in a playground ass whipping is simple.  In Kovalev Andre Ward II  the outcome was just as decisive. On the playground one kid beats hell out of the other. The victor dominates with the loser knowing he just isn’t as tough as his opponent.

Kovalev gets playground ass whipping
This was not a low blow. Andre Ward proved he could hurt Kovalev to the head, then finish him with crushing body punches that left Kovalev defenseless. Andre Ward inflicted an indisputable playground ass whipping to a terrific fighter, leaving no doubt as to which man is king of the ring. I contend that at 75 kilos, Ward, would take apart any prize fighter, regardless of his size

Which one is the Alpha Male?

Playground fighting is the same thing that occurs in the animal kingdom. Two male wolves fight for dominance over the pack, and once the issue is decided, there’s no question which wolf is the meanest, strongest animal. Or two bull moose lock horns to determine which male moose is going to be subservient over the other. Whether it’s in the animal kingdom or the playground, there’s no tabulation of points or 6 month rematches. Or penalties imposed for low blows. One male wins, while the other loses.

Which fighter will impose his will on the other?

And so it was in this epic rematch between the two finest boxers in the world.  One could already see it during the weigh in. With Kovalev and Andre Ward doing the obligatory stare down. But if you caught the tail end of the stare down, you would have caught Ward shrugging indifferently. Not once, but twice.   The body language spoke volumes as if Ward were saying, “okay, lets cut the crap. I’m winning this fight. Kovalev’s mine.”  (the subtle shrugs start at 3:31 in the weigh in video below).  Ward’s supremely confident here.  Now I knew who would win this fight.  If you caught it during the weigh in, there would be no room for doubt of  the playground ass whipping to come.

The fight started just as Kovalev–Ward 1 had, with Kovalev,  the aggressor, throwing out a lot more punches than his opponent. Trouble was, most of them didn’t land, and those that did failed to land with the same authority they did in Kovalev-Ward 1. Early on, Ward,  demonstrated a dazzling arsenal of defensive boxing skills of slipping and ducking punches.  This display of awesome talent no doubt convinced Kovalev that Ward was 100 percent certain  that there was no way the Russian could hurt him.

A playground ass whipping means total physical and mental domination over one’s opponent

Next came step II in Ward’s game plan of psychological dominance. Which was, “I ‘m now going to show you something that you totally never suspected”. Although he didn’t throw many, the punches to Kovalev’s head showed a snappiness and force that Kovalev had never seen before. And that he never suspected to exist. With only a 50 % knockout percentage, Ward’s never been known to have a knockout punch. Until now. The replays on you tube show Ward snapping Kovalev’s head back as the surprise registered in his Kovalev’s eyes and the Russian  could feel the pain.

I never knew that Ward can really punch

For the first time, Kovalev must have suddenly realized, “This man can really punch. I can easily be knocked out by this man.  I need to be very careful from now on.”

Kovalev already knew about step III in Ward’s game plan expecting Ward to impose his inside game of clinching, holding and body punching.   But Kovalev was ready for that.   He had learned Ward’s inside tactics well  from Kovalev Andre Ward I.  What he did not expect this time was for Ward to be able to deliver so many hard effective body punches. He expected Ward to be intimidated by his own powerful offense which he would continually slow down by holding and clinching to nullify the Russian’s powerful punches. Instead the American turned an inside game that had been mostly defensive into a very dangerous offensive weapon.

Fighting Dirty????  Nope.  I am only fighting to win

Throughout the fight, Ward would deliver one excruciating blow after the other into Kovalev’s midsection.. In my opinion,  Kovalev already expected a lot of effective body punching from Ward so he decided to impose his own mind game upon Ward.  I thought Kovalev was wearing his shorts substantially higher than they normally would have been worn.  In my opinion Kovalev had been hoping that the Ward would be thinking that he was delivering below the belt low blows and that the referee would severely penalize Ward for being a dirty fighter.  I think that at the very least Kovalev was hoping that this would discourage Ward from relying on his excellent body punching skills. And if the referee should disqualify Ward, so much the better.

The Russian’s strategy backfires

Unfortunately for Kovalev this did not work. To me, it seemed obvious that Ward was onto this trick, and that he decided to turn it against the Russian. Instead of tentatively punching Kovalev to the body out of fear of what the ref might do to him, Ward, went at Kovalev with reckless abandon. Throughout the fight Kovalev kept looking back at the referee to get him to do something about all those illegal dirty punches to the groin. And the referee, who was equally aware as Ward, to Kovalev’s strategy, kept ignoring the body blows, some of which might actually be considered as questionable.

But as the fight continued into the later rounds, Ward started to exhibit an ever increasing display of dazzling boxing skills that must have convinced Kovalev, I’m very fast, I have a great jab, I’m a terrific puncher and I have great boxing skills, but all of this, I cannot begin to match.” Ward continued to duck punches and to slip those that he didn’t duck. But when Kovalev did connect, Ward would hardly flinch at all, as if to say, “Is that all you got?” And then he’d snap Kovalev’s head back or deliver a punishing “low blow’ that might seem to cause Kovalev to crumple up in pain. But was Kovalev really only acting while trying to get the attention of the referee?

Kovalev finally faces the Inevitable

But it really didn’t matter. Either way, Kovalev was getting hurt. And if some of Ward’s body punches actually were illegal low blows, by then Ward had convinced Kovalev that there was nothing he could do about it. And by this time I could see that the Russian was becoming very frustrated by his own powerlessness.

Let’s recap all that I and others have said here.  Here’s the entire fight.

The playground ass whipping is sealed and delivered in the 8th round.  And to ANYONE who’s suggesting that Ward won because he’s a dirty fighter, I say, bullshit.

But to be certain, I downloaded the full fight from You tube.  Then I imported it into my video editing program, and ran key portions of it at 10 percent of the normal speed.   Especially the 7th and 8th rounds.

How Ward  dominated Kovalev

  • At 6:24 in the video, Ward clinches while picking Kovalev up off his feet, demonstrating, “I am stronger than you.”
  • 8:00 into the video, it is evident to the crowd that Ward is giving Kovalev a boxing lesson  which starts the crowd crowd chanting, “SOG, SOG, SOG (Son of God which Ward has embroidered into his shorts)
  • At 10:51 Ward delivers a body punch above Kovalev’s beltline.  Kovalev goes into a big song and dance protest hoping the referee will penalize Ward.   The crowd boos.
  • At 13:30 the crowd is enchanted with Ward’s incredible display of boxing talent as it cries out “Ali, Ali, Ali”.
  • At 14 minutes into the fight (on the you tube video) I’ve linked to, Kovalev is strong, but Ward’s snapping his punches with a force and speed Kovalev’s not seen before.  This has to be a nasty surprise from a man Kovalev believed lacked punching power.
  • At 17:00 Ward motions to the referee that Kovalev has been rabbit punching him to the head.  The video shows 3 rabbit punches inside one minute.  So much for all the protesting from Kovalev partisans and camp about “Ward’s Illegal low blows”.
  • By 19 minutes into this video, it’s pretty evident that Kovalev is not t going to be able to put Ward away unless he gets extremely lucky.

Ward takes control

At this point the scorecard is pretty even.  Kovalev is throwing more punches but Ward is displaying an awesome tool kit that’s thwarting Kovalev’s offense at every turn. Ward is also throwing the stronger blows.  It is evident to me that Ward will soon take complete control of this fight.

  • At 26:30 Kovalev turns his back on Ward.  (a complete no no in boxing)
  • At 28:21 Ward goes to Kovalev’s body twice.  Then he rabbit hits the Russian to the back of the head.
  • At 30 minutes into the video Ward clinches and pulls Kovalev around.  Disorientated, Kovalev turns his back on Ward while shielding his head from further attack.  His body language is of man who’s temporarily frightened and cowed.
  • By 30:30 Kovalev is looking tired, dizzy, and rattled from Ward’s offense.
  • By 30:52 into the 8th round Ward’s delivering a series of body punches (not to the testicles from my vantage point).  None of the punches appear all that hard yet Kovalev’s cowering down.   A look of pure disgust registers in Ward’s face.  In my opinion Kovalev’s  trying to get the referee to judge against Ward.

Andre Ward proves he’s a terrific finisher

  •  31 minutes into the video, Andre Ward’s eyes become those of a killer predator.  At 10 percent speed, the video shows that Ward is 100 percent focused on utterly destroying his opponent.
  • At 31:30, the American pummels Kovalev with body shots.  There is no fight left in Kovalev
  • At 31:45 Ward’s hitting Kovalev at will.
  • At 30:55 Ward punches Kovalev solidly to the midsection.  Then he rabbit punches him and follows up with another left to the midsection
  • At 31:32 Ward hits Kovalev with a devastating punch to the head.
  • By 31:35 Ward’s taken total control of the fight.  At this point Kovalev can do virtually nothing against the American.
  • By 32:02 Ward’s hitting Kovalev with three devastating body punches.  Kovalev’s almost on his knees now.  He won’t, or can’t defend himself.  The referee calls the fight a TKO for Ward.

Back to my playground ass whipping Analogy

In my own memory as a 12 year old, a much stronger boy who was 2 years older than I  is pummeling me to the ground.  There was no way I can beat this other kid.  I end up going home with two black eyes.  But most of the time I won, from the time I was six until I was fifty.  There was none of this, “Let’s fight again so I have a chance to beat you up when we meet again.” You either had the other guy or he had you.

Sergei Kovalev finally gets his playground ass whipping

And so it was with Kovalev vs Ward.  Kovalev was the bull, being larger and stronger. While Ward was the matador being completely aware of his total superiority over his opponent. With fifty seconds left in the 8th round, Kovalev knew that by then he had no chance whatsoever. The matador had his sword that amounted to a fantastic repertoire of both defensive and offensive weapons. By then, Ward had imposed both psychological and physical dominance over Kovalev. Ward would knock him out, if not this round, certainly the next.

Two magnificent fighters but only 1 is to be the best of the best

Kovalev is clearly a magnificent fighter.  Unfortunately, Andre Ward is an incredibly talented fighter without weaknesses.   Andre Ward Kovalev II proves to be a virtuoso performance from a man who doesn’t make mistakes.  By the time  Ward finally brings him to his knees , there is no longer any fight in Kovalev.   The final scene reminds me of a fighting bull waiting for the final thrust of the sword. Kovalev, is facing the finality of  ignominious defeat.   Like the kid being pummeled to the ground on the playground, there is no escaping the final outcome. One of these two great fighters had to lose.  While Andre Ward had finally emerged to become the undisputed champion of champions, and the el primo alpha of all alphas.

LX7 Panasonic vs Nikon D750 for low light video

LX7 Panasonic vs Nikon D750 for low light video.  You be the judge. Here’s a pair of videos I shot at the Pattaya Siam Siam night club.

LX7 Panasonic vs Nikon D750 for low light video
While shooting the video with the Nikon D750 I got this picture. There is nothing like using a professional SLR camera when you are using the best lenses. The Nikon 17 by 35 mm 2.8 lens is one of the finest pro lens ever built as this picture attests. The question is, Will my Nikon D750 deliver when it comes to low light video? Until tonight, automatic focusing issues have kept this camera from delivering on its promise.

Here’s the first video.  This one’s with the Nikon D750 using the Nikon 17-35 mm 2.8 lens.

And here’s the second.  I used the small Panasonic LX7 camera to shoot this 2nd video.  This camera is an overachiever.  I can’t think of another compact camera anywhere near  this size that’s got a fast 1.4 lens.  The lens is a Leica to boot from Germany, and this camera has always delivered no matter how low the lighting situation was.

But there’s nothing like using completely professional equipment.  Canon’s just as good as Nikon.  But I got started with Nikon and I already had a pair of Nikon’s finest and most expensive lenses–a Nikon 28-70 2.8 and its sister lens, a Nikon 17-35 mm wide angle 2.8.  From everything I’ve ever read nothing out there tops these two lenses, but they are both god awful heavy and cost big bucks.

I’ve shot video in restaurants down on the beach and in bars with my Nikon, and I’ve practiced for days on end in my condo trying to get the automatic focus to work right.  The cameras got a mirror and I’ve been informed by people who are supposed to be in the know that SLRs like mine will not do a good job on automatic focus at night. But My Panasonic Lx7 has no such problems.  It works like a dream.

Shooting with the Panasonic LX7 at Siam Siam

So here’s the story on these two videos.  A couple of weeks ago a group of condo owners and their girlfriends who live in my building celebrated my girlfriend’s birthday at the Siam Siam night club in Pattaya.  Well let me tell you, this place is a treasure.  The views up on the top floors of Pattaya are absolutely stunning as both videos will show.  At my girlfriend’s birthday I’m shooting with the Panasonic LX7.   Rory, is there with his Hong Kong girlfriend, and so is Rod, an Englishman with Mai, a young willowy Thai beauty whose personality just doesn’t stop.  My girlfriend, May May is here too–well of course she is….she’s the birthday girl.  Viewing Pattaya from the Siam Siam night club’s upper floors is a lot like Hong Kong.  That’s where Rory and Iris live when Rory’s not here in Pattaya, and they both tell you in this first video that Pattaya’s a lot better than Hong Kong.

My birthday at Siam Siam shooting my Nikon D750 in low light

But I’m itching to do a new video at Siam Siam with my Nikon gear.  This time it’s my birthday.  The camera came out great in the video I shot at the Muay Thai boxing arena, but later on, the focusing failed me down at my favorite Pattaya beach restaurant.  I spend hours Saturday afternoon practicing with three different lenses shooting in different shooting modes in my condo, and I’m still in my underwear when the door bell rings.  It’s Mai coming down to visit with my girlfriend and to wish me a happy birthday.  Normally I don’t come to the door wearing only my underwear shorts.  It scares people too much having to view my nearly naked body. But hey, I take my photography and my video seriously and there’s no time for false modesty.

Later my girlfriend and I head to Siam Siam.  It’s just the two of us, off celebrating my birthday, but wait, it’s a threesome after all.  I’ve got my Nikon D750 with me.  So it’s Panasonic vs Nikon.  If the Panasonic LX7 wins out, I’m getting an even more capable Panasonic LX model when I visit the U.S. a few months from now.  THe LX100 with is larger sensor looks like the answer to my shooting the best video I can.  But  I know that nothing can beat my two Nikon lenses when it comes to making my subjects jump right out of the picture and delivering the richest color possible.

 

 

 

 

 

Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners raise prices again

girl victimized by Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners
Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners are raising bar fines to 1000-1500 baht levels and squeezing as many lady drinks from their customers as they can. The price of a beer now averages 150 baht. Most expats, the guys who live in Pattaya full time, hardly ever frequent the go go bars anymore. They know better than to have to pay 2000 baht short time, and a bar fine that goes from 1000 to 1500 baht while having to put up with the predatory tactics used by the go go girls to pressure customers into paying for an absurd number of drinks.

It’s Christmas day and I’m out on the town. I should know better. The Christmas holidays are when bar fines climb to insane levels. This is when greedy Pattaya go go bar owners really stick it to their customers. I told Billy Bob: “There’s no way I’m bar fining anyone tonight.” Then I ran into one of the sexiest go go dancers I’ve bar fined in a long time.

“Your bar fine still 800 baht?” I asked her.

“Now 1000 baht, “she replied.

“That’s a nice Christmas present from your big boss to his customers. Lek, I give you 1000 baht for short time.”

“Okay.”

Which was a great move on my part. And Lek was smart enough to go along with me.  I has been paying her 1500 baht for short time. Not real often though, because I gots me a couple of exceptional performers over on Soi Six for 1000 baht and it’s just 300 baht for the room with no bar fine. Sometimes I lay around the room for a couple of hours with one of the girls and I only have to pay the 300 baht room price once. And this girl is completely dedicated to making her Uncle Bufford come, no matter how long it takes. And she’s better looking than most go go girls. So is the other Soi Six girl.

So why in the world would I ever want to come down to Walking Street where the only customers are ignorant tourists who don’t know better?

Billy Bob’s not too keen on Soi Six for one thing. And it’s the challenge. I always tells my friends, “I can get some of these go go girls to bang me for 1000 baht.” But they don’t believe me. That’s because they iz idiots.

So I fucked Lek for 1000 baht. On Christmas night no less. The rest of you reading this can’t. But that’s only because you ain’t Uncle Bufford. I got the wisdom while the rest of you are only followers who can’t think for yourselves.

Only thing is all that tequila Lek and I keep drinking together at the CH go go bar is mighty high. She gets 50 baht for every lady’s drink I buy her, and I gots to pay 150 baht for all my beers. I can get the same beers at Soi Six for 90 baht, except for that go go bar that wants 120 baht. But I still go theres sometimes. That’s because there’s no pressure on me at the Soi Six go go bar. It’s so damn expensive to bang a girl upstairs that no way am I paying them stupid ass prices. So I just drink two or three drinks and move on to all them 1000 baht Soi Six girls.

I take Lek to the short time rooms across the street from CH. They have raised their prices to over 375 baht, and it’s either the girl or the Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners who gets the difference between the real 290 baht price this short time place charges customers who bring girls in from bars outside of Walking Street. I’m betting on the greedy Pattaya go go bar owners who rakes in this extra cash though.  Anyways, when you take a go go girl into this short time establishment, she fills out a little ticket. I thinks the short time place kicks back around 75 baht to the go go bar for each ticket.

Another thing. When I take Lek to the short time room, it’s like she’s got a time limit of half an hour or so because she’s always in a hurry to get me to come so she can get me back to her bar.  I’m sure in my heart that mamasan is making her cut my time short with her.   That Christmas night when I banged Lek for 1000 baht, Lek made me promise not to tell anyone that I’m doing her for 1000 baht.

At first I thought it was cause she was feeling she was losing face with the other girls. I mean how does it appear to all them go go bar girls who sit around eatin all that Pok Pok together all braggin about how much money they all iz makin and how much each customer gives them. Yeah right.

Here’s Lek telling all the other girls, “I’m doing Uncle Bufford for 1000 baht, and another girl is saying, “I only fuck Japanese men,because they pay me 3000 baht short time”.  That makes Lek feel real bad because she knows all the other girls are thinking, “Lek’s a cheapass 1000 baht whore while me and the other girls are 3000 baht high class prostitutes.” Fact of the matter Billy Bob thinks many of them will only go with Japanese men on account of the high prices dem Japanese keep paying.

So I promise Lek not to tell anyone in her bar that she’s now lowering her price to 1000 baht from the 1500 I have been paying her.

“Now keep that in mind all you Japanese men who are reading this. You guys pay 2000 baht or even more for the same girls I pay only half price for. Let’s face the facts, guys, I loves you Japanese but you sure are a bunch of piss poor money managers compared to me.”

The next time I come into CH Lek’s not there. But Mamasan who knows that I usually cannot control my dick, instructs another girl to pounce on me.  The girl’s one of the prettiest girls at CH, but she don’t have quite the body Lek’s got.  In no time she’s got her hands in my pants rubbin my dick and my balls. After a drink or two she says to me: “Short time me now. I want you now.”

“How about next week?” I reply.

“No good for me. Next week Lek’s going to be here and you will want Lek, not me.”

In spite of her rubbin my dick and my balls for a good hour and even gettin another girl to help her, I leave CH without bar fining her.

Banging Amy in the G Spot

A few days later, Billy Bob and I head to the G Spot on Walking Street. A girl spots me who I’ve not seen in over a year. She used to work at the Dolls A Go Go on Soi Six. Back then the short time room upstairs cost 500 baht, so I told her, “all the short time rooms here on Soi Six are 300 baht. Tell you what. You want 1000 baht short time.  I give you 800 since room is so much more.”  She agreed. So even though I was now on Walking Street, I knew she’d do me for 1000 baht.

But Mamasan told me I’d have to give her 2000 baht for short time.

“Mamasan.  Amy and I are old friends. I know her for 5 years.  Up to me.  Up to Amy what I give her.”

To this mamasan agreed.  And Amy backed me.  But there was just one short time room upstairs and they had to get it ready so there was a 15 minute wait.

Uncle Bufford goes for 3 go go girls in a row for 1000 baht.

So that’s two out of two girls who will boom boom me for 1000 baht. Which is fair enough.  Except the Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners are charging too much for their rooms and bar fines. So thinking mighty highly of myself I went back to CH.  Again, no Lek, but her “friend” was there and once again I was in the “friend’s” sights.

After the first tequila we had together I told her I would short time her for 1000 baht.  She didn’t say much, focusing upon her tequila instead of my proposition.

“I only pay ladies 1000 baht tip,” I said to her.

One tequila later she asks me, “What do you pay Lek?”

“I not tell you. That is up to Lek and me. Not you and not mamasan.”

After two or three tequilas she’s still with me.  Can I blame her when she’s getting 50 baht for each ladies drink?  I finally tell her. 1000 baht I pay you for short time or I leave now with Billy Bob.”

Again she asks, “What do you give Lek?”

And once again, I tell her, “That is up to Lek and me.”

She winds up refusing the 1000 baht and I check bin, anxious to leave A.S.A.P. thinking to myself, “Stupid girl.  That’s the last time I ever buy her a drink.”

*****

One week later

Lek launches herself on me just 10 seconds after I walk in the door. But I’ve been banging two girls down on Soi Six, and I’ve concluded, “It just doesn’t get any better than that.”

Billy Bob’s sitting on my immediate right while Lek is on my lap already stroking my dick.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been with Lek, but I remember just how succulently fine her breasts are.  I duck down and insert one of them in my mouth and start sucking away like a baby.

I tell Lek how “her friend” tried to get me to do a short time with her and how she refused the thousand baht offer I had given her.

“Mamasan be very angry with me if you tell her you boom boom me for 1000 baht,” Lek tells me.

(Are the mamasans getting a commission on go go dancer tips?  I’ve been here too long to dismiss this possibility)

“Not to worry, Lek.  I tell no one.  Not mamasan or girls here in Bar.”

“Who is girl who want you to boom boom you?”

The girl is dancing on the stage a few feet away from us.  So I point her out.  Then I tell Lek, “If I tell her you are boom booming me for 1000 baht she probably will also.”

“No one is going to boom boom for 1000 baht,” Lek replies.

“Except you, and a girl I took upstairs down at the G Spot last week. But I know her from Soi Six.”

Apparently not hearing me, Lek continued: “No girls will be doing 1000 short times here.”

“Except you.  But that is our little secret, Lek.”

After several drinks, I leave her after promising to short time her the next time I see her.  I had promised Billy Bob that tonight I wouldn’t be selfish and that I wouldn’t bar fine anyone, preferring to hit several go go’s with him instead.

Thinking more about Lek

But I’m rethinking Lek.  I think the two Soi Six girls like me a lot better than Lek does. On the other hand, mamasan is always horning in behind the scenes, no doubt telling her to limit her time with me in the short time room.

This had happened to me before at Mistys go go bar. I’m sure the waitress there really did like me, and again I was equally sure that Mamasan was telling her to hurry back to the bar as soon as we had finished. I know this because the first time the waitress and I had done a short time the waitress had all the time in the world, showing me pictures in the short time room, and talking endlessly about things I had long ago forgotten.  Then she had tried to get me to meet her outside the bar during Songkran but I had refused.

With Lek, who knows? But I could care less one way or the other. What was much more important was how well our body parts fitted together.  And how much I enjoy tasting her breasts.  I just love her trim little body. I also knew that nearly every man coming into her bar was paying 1500 to 2000 baht short time, minimum and that I was something special.  After all, I’m Uncle Bufford and the other guys simply ain’t me.

Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners and the Star A Go Go

After passing on Lek,  I wound up at Star a go go.  I know there’s a short time room upstairs so that’s perfect, but the girl who oftentimes drinks with me and rubs my dick tells me, “It’s closed. The police keep checking all the clubs.”

Which is true. A week ago the police had raided the Windmill and found an Englishman upstairs in the short time room with a girl. The guy wound up with his picture plastered all over the internet and the newspapers.  If he had a wife in England or a Thai steady girlfriend, this in my eyes was an unforgivable act. Meanwhile one of my two favorites on Soi Six had text messaged me that I could no longer boom boom her in the room upstairs in her bar.  Only on the outside, could we have sex, she had texted.

So I asked the Star a Go Go girl, “When your bar’s short time room is open, how much must I pay to boom you n this bar?”

“2000 baht for me. 1500 baht for the room,” the girl replied.

I decided right then not to ever come back to Star a Go Go. 3500 baht is a hundred American dollars, which is ridiculous for any Pattaya bar girl.  So I told her, “Well, maybe I get room somewhere and you can meet me on the outside and we never pay any Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners anything.

To which she agreed. I know I can get her for a thousand baht so long as I book her outside the bar But she reminds me a lot of one of my two favorite Soi Six girls.  But she’s getting a bit paunchy on account of all the alcohol she’s probably drinking as a bar girl.  The Soi Six girl has by far the better body.

Three nights ago in the Walking Street Go Go Bars

A few days later, four of us converge on Walking Street. Our first stop is at the Light House. The guys want to go there for the Eye Candy.  But no one in our group’s ever bar fined anyone there yet.  I go there for the “cheap happy hour prices”. Tonight two gin and tonics cost me 150 baht.  As usual, I’m bored here.  No one’s rubbing my balls yet.  But as long as I have two full drinks in front of me, I’m relatively happy.

Then it’s onto CH. I’m hoping Lek is going to show, but she’s nowhere in sight.  But the happy hour two for one drink prices are still on, so it’s another two gin and tonics.  I walk around the place looking for Lek.  The place is crowded and there’s nowhere to sit for four guys. Billy Bob and I sit in front of the hot tub where two girls are cavorting totally nude.  One of them keeps looking straight into my eyes.  Then I recognize her.   I fucked her. Not just once but several times, but gave up on her due to her becoming too chunky for my tastes.  There’s no improvement, however.

The waitresses finally are able to find seating for all four of us.  Billy Bob and I find spots at a small table across the room from the hot tub while BD (Big Dog) is being seated to our left at another small table next to me.  But Gerald has to sit clear across the room from us where he’s immediately set upon by one of the bar’s go go girls. After a few minutes the hot tub girl joins me. I buy her a drink as she seats herself in my lap and starts stroking my dick.

I quickly sms Lek on my cell phone: “I am here for you at your bar.” Other than getting my dick massaged and relaxing with my gin and tonics, I don’t want much to do with the gal on my lap. There’s no sign of Lek.  I had messaged her just in case she was somewhere in the go go bar and would make her appearance later. I didn’t want her to think I wanted the girl on my lap more than I wanted her.

“Lek, of course, really doesn’t give a shit about me.”  Well, maybe she would if I really went after her.  After all the prospect of enough money every month, and being able to quit dancing at the go go bar just might entice her to show a little affection (for my money) and some loyalty (again for my money, instead of someone else’s).

One of my neighbors had just moved a 19 year old go go girl in with him from Misty’s go go bar. He’s 65 so the age difference of 46 years is just about right. The 19 year old’s had one kid for 5 years now, so she must have gotten pregnant when she was 14.  Maybe she’s got 2 children.  I have no idea what he’s paying her each month, but I’ll be finding out, so yeah, if I want to have Lek, I can have Lek.  But I don’t want to have any of them.  I don’t need the baggage.  The bottom line is this.  Any woman limits a man’s freedom, and all women deteriorate physically.  I want to have any woman I want, and I want her in her prime.

Plus, I’m the kind of guy who really knows himself.  I know that the grass is always greener on the other side.  So it really does not matter what the girl I’m with is like.  There’s always something better, so I want no limitations on either my time or wallet.

Still–I wanta bang Lek in the worse way.

Our group moves on to Electric Blue. Billy Bob likes the place because the draft beers are just 45 baht here. The bar is very dark inside, which means he can grope a girl without hardly being seen since both his groping hand and her privates are both in the shadows.  I see nothing attractive here at all, and the place is chock full of cheap charlies all cashing in on those 45 baht beers.

Big Dog’s found someone to buy drinks for.  But Gerald’s all pissed off.  We don’t know why except he’s already leaving the bar to go home.  Or that’s what he’s telling us.  He’s probably going to meet other friends at another bar, or maybe he’s got a girl lined up to meet him back at his hotel.  But Big Dog’s not about to leave.  The girl who’s with him is kindof ugly, but that’s the kind of girls he likes. That’s why we calls him Big Dog because he will fuck anything.

Billy Bob and I head to the G-spot. The girl I had banged in the go go’s short time room upstairs is here. Amy’s got her hair dyed blonde, and she’s pretty drunk. I don’t realize just how bad off she is until I get her in the short time room later on.  Anyways, I bar fine her. Amy tells me that the club has closed the short time room upstairs on account of the police so I have to take her outside the bar to the short time place I usually use across from CH.

I want to walk ahead of Amy on account of my not wanting to be seen taking any girl to any short time room.  After all, I’ve got my appearances to keep up.  But Amy keeps hanging all over me as we walk down Walking Street.  Even worse, she keeps trying to take my arm or hold my hand.

But the G spot is controlled by one of those Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners who keeps raising his prices.  A few weeks ago Amy’s bar fine was 800 baht. Now it’s 900 baht.   I’m giving her only 1000 baht, however, same as I’m now giving Lek.

What I didn’t count on was Amy being an absolute goof ball.  When we take off our clothes in the short time room, I suddenly realize that she’s drunk too much and now she’s getting sick on me.  Several times she gets up from the bed to go to the toilet to throw up or to retch.  So I ask her how much she’s had to drink.   Amy admits to having just three drinks in the bar.   She also admits to drinking before coming to work.  So it’s not me. I know that Amy has always liked me.

A more likely reason is that Amy hates having to work in a go go bar. And that she hates having customers constantly groping her and her having to keep rubbing the dicks of all those customers she secretly despises.  And I have to say, “I don’t blame her.” So she probably got half way blitzed out of her mind before she even showed up at work.

It’s kind of like farmers hauling corn out of their grain bins and trucking it to the elevator.  Sometimes moisture accumulates in the corn and some of it spoils so bad that there’s no difference between it and shit.  So the farmer has to shovel all that spoiled corn out of his bins meanin he’s literally havin to shovel shit to keep makin his livin.

That’s the way I look at a lot of these bar girls.  They gotsa boom boom guys who are stupid, rotten, selfish bastards.  Most of them are fat hogs who never managed to get one woman in their home countries to ever be nice to them.   Most men who live in Pattaya are this way.  Yep….these bar girls have to keep shoveling shit into their pussies to make a livin and I can’t blame them for gettin sick now and then.

Next time I come in Walking Street, I’m going to be in Lek.  I’ve still got those friends of mine in town, and there’s no way that four guys can fully enjoy themselves on Soi Six.  That’s on account of the bars being too small to have more than one or two good-looking girls. There it’s good to hunt alone. So it looks like once again I’m going to have to put up with these Greedy Pattaya go go bar owners.

Non voting Americans are not true Americans

Non voting Americans are not true Americans.  If you are eligible to vote, and don’t, then you’d better be quiet.

The right to vote is not just a privilege.  It is a duty all American citizens need to perform.   The way I see it, Non voting Americans are not true Americans.   Let me be painfully blunt.  If you are American and eligible to vote in this next election, but fail to do so for any reason short of death or extreme disability, you are not worth a  tinkers damn.

cartoon about Non voting Americans believing anything
I created this cartoon before the 2012 election. Although Donald Trump kicked off the myth that Obama was not born in the U.S. the Republican Party embraced it along with other fables such as Obama is a secret Muslim and he’s the wrong kind of Christian.  Now I must ask, how in the hell can anyone be the wrong kind of Christian and a Muslim at the same time?  The Republican Party believes that Americans are so stupid that they will actually believe such tales. And as far as Falso News (Fox News) it is nothing other than a Nazi party type of propaganda machine pretending to be a legitimate news channel. You can do your homework about Fox News and if you do you will have to conclude that it is a Republican tool used to elect republican candidates. Or you can simply watch it for a few days and then ask yourself, “What percent of the time is Fox News relentlessly hammering away at its audience the following message..”Obama bad. Democrats are bad”?

I am living in Thailand full time as an American expat.  But I’m just blown away by the fact that four out of four of my American friends are not voting in this upcoming November election.  Their excuses run from “I’m no longer registered in the correct state” to “the lobbyists have so much power that my vote won’t count anyway” to “I don’t like the two choices the Democrats and Republicans are giving me.”

Well, I’ve already voted and I’m damn proud of it.  Sure, I had to make the effort of downloading the right application from the internet for my absentee ballot.  I even had to make sure that my printer’s ink cartridge had ink in it so I could print out the application.   Then I had to actually spend a horrific fifteen more minutes of my life filling the application out. I had to find an envelope that was buried deep in a desk drawer.  Then I had to drive my motorcycle to a postal outlet a mile up the street so I could mail in my request for an absentee  ballot.  I  had to wait two weeks for my absentee ballot to arrive by email.   Finally I had to  fill in the ballot, and drive my motorbike to the post office to send my ballot in.

But I don’t figure all that effort is too much of a hardship.  Not when I think of what our founding fathers had to go through to win American Independence from England.  Or the 600,000 Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the American Civil War fighting for what they believed in.  Or our fellow black citizens who used to have to sit in the back of the bus more than seventy-five years after the abolishment of slavery.

Okay, so you don’t like either Trump or Clinton.  Suppose you believe that Clinton is a very corrupt human being.   You think that Clinton is untrustworthy.  So you decide not to vote for her.  This leaves you with three choices.  1.  You vote for Trump, 2.  You vote for a third party, or 3.  Or you don’t vote at all.   If you choose 3, you are failing to exercise your right to vote.  By failing to do your duty, you have proven to be unworthy of all those patriots who sacrificed so much.

By failing to exercise your right to vote, you are truly not worthy of being called an American.   They were American patriots.  You are a wuss.  A wanker.  By failing to perform your civic duty, you deserve being ruled by a Hitler or a king who would deny you all the civil rights you presently enjoy and the respect you think you deserve as a human being.

Those who vote for a third party, will be throwing their votes away.   Either Trump or Clinton is going to win.  No third party candidate has a chance.  Not in this election.  Trump has alienated so many women, blacks and Hispanics , that there is no way that he can win this election.  Unless enough of these people he’s alienated fail to show up.

I’ve chosen to mention two very bad names that will  live forever in infamy.  Hitler and Nazi.  Now we all know that Hitler did a lot of lying to help him rise to the top.  But as a liar Hitler was half as bad as Trump who lies 75 % of the time.  And compared to Trump, Hitler at least appeared to be a pretty reasonable man for the first half of his political career.

By 1933 and when he became chancellor and a few years afterwards,  Hitler made a lot of sense, even to his future enemies.   He got Germany out of the  Great Depression by the mid 1930’s while it took the United States half way through World War II  to emerge  from the economic abyss.   He was able to reclaim nearly all the territory Germany lost after winding up on the losing side during World War I.   Hitler also created the mightiest military machine in Europe from the paltry 100,000 Army Germany was allowed to keep by the victorious Allied powers under the Treaty of Versailles.  As for the later part of his political career, there’s no question that Hitler lost it.  As for Trump, I don’t think he’s got it in him to achieve a single month’s greatness on any meaningful level.

not exercising your right to vote is a vote for Donald Trump
Admittedly I am no cartoonist. But I was so horrified by the long list of hapless Republican choices for President for the 2012 presidential election that I created the GOP cartoon strip. I’ve had very few people come to this cartoon strip. I wish a lot more would. But I’ve done my best There’s 26 cartoon strips in all, and I had a lot of fun doing each one. I figure I’ve done my patriotic duty as an American and the fact that I have very little skill as an artist does not take away from the fact that I’ve tried.

Trump doesn’t make sense to any thinking rationale person.

He’s a denier of  man made climate change.  This alone makes him an enemy of the entire human race.   And he’s a compulsive liar who cannot be trusted.  About anything.

For years he’s been claiming that our President Obama was not born in the United States.  I’ve seen Trump on television telling the world what a miserable student Obama was.  And yet, Obama graduated from Harvard Law School Magna Cum Laude as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review.  Hitler would never have stooped to making such  outrageous accusations.  Not because Hitler was a scrupulous and truthful man, but because he  knew that such lies were so obviously untrue.  Hitler was smart enough to know that he could never get away with it.

Trump gets away with practically everything.  He hasn’t paid any taxes for how many years now?  And he claims to be a true man of the people.  He promises to use his business acumen to successfully run this great country of ours.   He proudly brags about his successful business career as evidence of his wonderful business ability.

But Trumps declared bankruptcy how many times?

As a businessman he’s lost so much money that he doesn’t have to pay any taxes for twenty years.  There’s a long trail of business partners, employees and customers he’s cheated at every turn.   The Trump pigpen of “business success” is rank and smelly beyond belief.

It is  scary to think of such a scoundrel being given the chance to get us into World War III.

If Americans elect him to be president, and he doesn’t turn the world  into a nuclear wasteland, we can all be sure of one thing.

 Planet Earth will still  no longer be  fit to live on.

This Pathetic denier of man made climate change will do his best to halt all that clean energy that needs to be developed to stop mankind from destroying the planet.

Clinton brings a lot of baggage to this election.  True enough.  But it is equally true that she is a very able person who is  quite qualified to perform well as president.  Her character might seem to be dubious, but she’s obviously very intelligent.  And she’s rational.

So, in spite of of Trump being a totally disgusting, lying scumbag, you’re telling me you will still vote for the him?

At least you are man or woman enough to exercise your right to vote.   I’ll give you that.

By voting for Trump you will be enabling the destruction of our planet.    All those clean energy laws the present Obama administration has passed  would be continued under a Clinton  led government.  Under Trump they would fall by the wayside.  There would be horrific climate change, and the destruction of our environment would become unstoppable.   Just think, you can actually make this happen by failing to exercise your right to vote or voting for the unthinkable one.  Trump the Rump.

So who’s worse?  Non voting Americans or someone who’s so badly misinformed that he actually votes for Trump the Rump?

It’s obvious to anyone who’s got even a modicum of common sense that Trump’s a Rump.  A complete Ass this man certainly is.  But we should overlook the infirmities of the intellectually impaired.  Out of pity.

But to be among the Non voting Americans is to separate oneself from what what it means to be American.  Non voting Americans are rejecting the spirit of 1776 which motivated Americans to separate themselves from England.  Over thirty thousand Americans gave their lives to cast off the tyranny of the English crown.  But this was only a token sacrifice compared to the 600,000 Americans who died during the American Civil War in order to assert their political beliefs.   Those were true Americans who lived back then.
