    Looks like it's time to cancel paypal.
    I just deleted my cards from the paypal account.

    A little less than a week before the midterm elections in
    November, a new PayPal account update will take effect that has
    sent the internet into an uproar — and also drawn condemnation
    from PayPal’s former president David Marcus.

    What’s happening: PayPal is updating its acceptable use policy,
    with the update taking effect on November 3. You might say to
    yourself, well, I don’t use my account with the financial
    services company for anything improper or illegal, so what do I
    have to worry about? Here’s why that might not necessarily be

    PayPal says it’s expanding its existing list of prohibited
    activities to include the “sending, posting, or publication of
    messages, content, or materials that meet certain criteria.” The
    full details are explained right here, but PayPal is basically
    set to start levying a fine when users are found to have shared “misinformation” or promoted content that’s deemed to be
    “discriminatory” or promoting “hate.”

    PayPal account update
    The list of prohibited activities is broader than that, but it’s
    especially the prohibition on sharing “misinformation” that’s
    giving many people pause. Moreover, PayPal gives itself the
    right to debit $2,500 from your PayPal account for each
    violation of this new, expanded acceptable use policy.


    Marcus, for his part, described this new policy as “insanity.” A
    tweet from him on Saturday, October 8, reads in part: “A private
    company now gets to decide to take your money if you say
    something they disagree with.” Venture capitalist David Sacks
    chimed in, in response to Marcus: “Get your money out of PayPal
    right now.”

    David Marcus
    It’s hard for me to openly criticize a company I used to love
    and gave so much to. But @PayPal’s new AUP goes against
    everything I believe in. A private company now gets to decide to
    take your money if you say something they disagree with.

    As word of this PayPal change began to spread over the weekend,
    FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr described what’s happening here as

    “PayPal reserves the right to take your money if you post a
    message that PayPal decides is “misinformation,'” he tweeted.
    “This is why it is so vital that state and federal legislatures
    pass laws that prohibit discrimination by tech companies and
    protect free speech.”

    The average millenial wokster has over $100,000.00 in credit
    card debt.

    Woksters are too lazy to work and have no money except for what
    they leech from their parents, trust funds, welfare, or do-
    gooder handouts.

    Many woksters sign their lives away for $600 a month and an EBT
    card, claiming they are mentally incompetent and cannot handle
    their own personal affairs.

    Individuals who voluntarily affirm that they are mentally
    incompetent should also forfeit their right to vote.

    Woksters have similar numbers to homosexuals and constitute
    perhaps 3% of the US population.

    What strategic business principle sees profit in this kind of
    market prospect?

    What reasonable consumer would support a business with woke
    philosophies and policies?
