i often wonder if you ever stop and read what you have written....what makes you think you are are contributing to thai society(has any one noticed) and those in canada are not contributing to canadian society..it always strikes me that people accept things in thailand that they would never do in there home country's...Ian Forbes;346740 said:5555555555
If you are in the country and contributing to Thai society, either directly or indirectly, I don't see much harm in it. It doesn't matter if I contribute 100 baht or 5 million baht to Thailand, I'm still contributing and taking nothing away from the country.
It is entirely different with foreigners on welfare in Canada. They contribute nothing and yet are a drain the economy. There is very little welfare for foreigners in Thailand.. if any. It's only when they die destitute in Thailand that taking care of the remains costs something.
