PayPal Reinstates Fund For WikiLeaker Manning

indy_Muad'Dib From the Article (92 comments)

"To be clear: PayPal cannot take such action without the authorization of an account holder, nor does it ever take such unauthorized actions."

What a line of bullshit, they have stolen from me twice to the tune of $5300.

4 years and I'm still fighting these fuckers over this.

i even won in small claims court due to them not showing up and haven't received a penny, and i likely never will.

sadly the gaming world is in the grip of FPSwhores right now, not many games made in other genres unless you wanna go play WOW all day.

i personally play an adult game wrapped in a kid like candy shell.


think legos but you have to get the blocks yourself while trying to not get killed every 20 minutes when the sun goes down.

assure that Germany fared better during WW1

now hear me out first.

there was no way that Germany could have flat out won the first world war, they didn't have the manpower to do it.

i would go back and make sure that the US didn't get involved, the war would have stretched out for a bit longer but Germany would have eventually lost or gone to armistice on much better terms that what they ended up with.

France would have never ended up taking back Alsace-Lorraine and in turn would have not crippled Germany's economy and industrial base.

further, Germany would not have gotten sucked into economic depression paying war reparations as well as not ended up with massive unemployment from the loss of its industrial base.

with its economy not faltering its people would not have ended up turning to Nazism to save them and Hitler would have stayed as a mediocre painter, never raising to the point of being able to control the country and drive our ancestors straight into World War 2.

Also, because America did not get involved its economy and workforce would not have suffered so greatly and possibly the Great Depression could have been avoided entirely.
