Bradley Manning is the most courageous young man. He should be applauded not vilified. He will be giving up years of his young life in the name of truth. The climate in this country is such that he will be sent to Leavenworth for at least 10 years. Assange is the messenger and Manning the whistleblower, I fear for both of their lives.
I love PayPal and am closing my account, so like they used to say to Rush, ditto
Direct link to closing your account https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_close-account
Also here are alternatives to PayPal http://blog.webdistortion.com/2010/07/28/paypal-alternatives-e-commerce/
(PayPal deletes this post in 3...2...1...)
Thanks, jayeats! This is really helpful. I've bookmarked http://blog.webdistortion.com/2010/07/28/paypal-alternatives-e-commerce/
Thanks for posting BOTH of these links! I just tweeted them both and will continue to with the hashtag #boycottPAYPAL and #wikileaks. Great!
The right? Pretty sure this is coming from the Obama administration. You are right to close your paypal account, but put the blame where it belongs.
Unfortunately, you are exactly correct. It's the Obama administration that is directly responsible for the attack on Wikileaks. However, it is also true that the political right AND the corporate media (the supposed watchdogs of government) are almost completely in support of the administration on this.
“How do I close out my paypal account because of this insane right wing knee-jerk reaction to the Wikileaks hullaballoo?? Already dropped my Amazon account, and this one is next. What a bunch of tools to submit to the propaganda the Right is putting out to protect the level of secrecy and cover-ups that is really destroying this country.
Too bad to find out that PayPal is run by a bunch of anti-intellectual rednecks!”
Go into your account and Transfer the funds back to your bank account.
O would do it down to 0.01 and then leave it open so you can post on this forum.
