And that's fifteen years potentially, not a couple of weeks.

Yes, but on the other hand one can go round the way and have some of the good old in-n-out without fear of the police, unlike the Bad Place.

I can say that I would much rather keep silent about my opinions (just like we have to do on this forum) rather than keep my กล้วยใหญ่ in my pants.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Don't worry, no doubt the offending opinion will soon be removed by the authorities, dead0man.
