Everyday . . . Is A New Challenge For Conservatives – Whether on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube, or Amongst Internet Email Providers, which Effects Most Popular Conservative Web Sites . . . INCLUDING GALGANOV.COM.
But Here’s A New One For Galganov.com . . . All of a Sudden, and out of the Clear Blue, PayPal, which is Infamous for Not Transacting Financial Transactions for Gun & Ammunition Sales, which also Includes Boycotts Against Groups which PayPal finds to be Objectionable, Has Had Me Jumping Through Hoops For Over A Week – To Withdraw Your Money From My Account . . . To Deposit In The Galganov Dot Com Inc Bank Account.
After A Decade Of Galganov.com Doing Business With PayPal . . . PayPal has Decided that they Need Verification of my Identity.
And Each Time . . . When I’ve Complied this Week with PayPal’s Demand for Information, I gave PayPal what they had Asked-For, and Each Time, after Receiving what I Sent to PayPal, PayPal Changed the Requests to Ask for Different & Additional Documents.
And Until I Would Satisfy PayPal With What They Wanted – Galganov.com’s Withdrawal Account Was Frozen.
This Has Been Going On For More Than A Week.
FINALLY . . . We had a PayPal Representative Sit on the Phone with Us, as We Filled-Out all the Demands, Sending the Representative the Compliance they Insisted Upon Receiving . . . So We Complied Until The Representative Said Everything Was “PERFECT”.
And Then . . . After Forwarding All Of This “PERFECT” Information To The PayPal Compliance Department . . . We Were Once Again Asked For MORE INFORMATION – But We’ve Reached The Point, Where There Really Is No More To Give. We have Given PayPal Bank Records, Federal Galganov.com Government Statements & Personal ID Information with my Driver’s License & a Credit Card Statement, and they still Email Back – That Is Not Enough!
So Here We Were . . . with Money in Our PayPal Account (Your Money), Which We Couldn’t Access. So, what we did – was REFUND all the Money (Save a Few Dollars, which we Couldn’t Refund), To The People Who Generously Supported Galganov.com.
And Asked These Supporters . . . If They Would Want To Resubmit Their Support To The Same Galganov.com PayPal Link, which was in Fact, Linked by our IT Manager to our Advertising Agency (Promar Media Group), which Is Still Corporately Active, but Not Doing Current Business.
And From Promar Media Group . . . All of that Money was Deposited into the Galganov.com Bank Account as is Normally Done. BUT THIS IS NO WAY TO DO BUSINESS.
And The Last Thing We Want . . . is For PayPal to Screw-Us Over on Either of our Two Accounts . . . And Hold Onto Your Money. So As Of Now . . . I’ve Instructed our IT Manager to Suspend all PayPal Activities on Galganov.com Until Further Notice . . .
I Refuse To Have Galganov.com Screwed-Over By Anyone. Not even a Mega-Billion-Dollar Corporation like PayPal, which Already is Known to Proudly Screw-Over Conservative Companies.
So – We’ve Opted For A New Support Strategy, Which We’re Setting-Up Now.
PayPal Charges Galganov.com 3.5% & A Transaction Fee For Every Deposit. Plus PayPal Holds Your Money for 3-5 Days before Releasing Your Money To Galganov.com, which Always Bothered me More than just Somewhat . . . but, because of the Convenience & Ease of Use . . . We Continued To Use PayPal.
Unlike Other Popular Conservative Advocates . . . Galganov.com is not Paid by a Major Media Corporation or by Way of Media Grants. And Outside of the US/Canada Postal Systems, there are Very Limited Ways for Galganov.com to Receive Financial Support.
So Now . . . We’ve Decided To Look Into Bank Credit Cards.
WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT FORTUNES . . . But At The End Of The Day – We’re Looking At A Couple of Thousand Dollars Per Month, Which Just About Covers The Expenses Of Galganov.com and the Things I Do to Advocate.
It’s Not A Lot Of Money . . . But It Certainly Helps.
And To Our Surprise . . . Bank Credit Cards Charge A Lot Less Than PayPal & Deposit the Money Within 24-Hours. And the Credit Card Service, with which we are Working . . . will Make Available a Myriad of Credit Cards, for which People Can Choose to Support Galganov.com.
In Essence . . . Galganov.com – Along with a Plethora of other Conservative Voices, are being Targeted Left, Right & Center by all Form of Media, Including Social Media to Keep Voices & Opinions Like Mine from being Heard, Seen & Read.
THEREFORE . . . On Every Middle Of Each Month – I Ask For Your Support.
But Unlike Every “Normal” Month – On This Month . . . I’m Not Asking For Support Through PayPal. This Month, I’m Asking for your Support through the Old Fashioned Mail Service By Check . . . Until we can get our Credit Card Service Up & Running.
What Makes This An Even Greater Challenge But Less Convenient . . . Is that this Friday, I will be Meeting with our IT Manager, where a Full Data Revamp of Galganov.com will be Worked-Out, so Galganov.com will Work Seamlessly with the New IT Platforms.
And While We’re At It . . . We will be Deciding upon, WHAT I KNOW will be an Exciting & Very Different PODCAST . . . Unlike Most Anything You Might Have Ever Heard Before, which I am Hoping will be Used to Generate Revenue for Galganov.com, Separately from the ACTUAL BLOG, which will Continue to be FREE to everyone, with no Changes . . . Including Free Editorial Alerts, Free Comments, and Free Answered Emails.
With This Programming Upgrade – We Should Also Be Able To Bypass The Obstacles Placed In Your Path To Receive Editorial Alerts By Restrictive Email Providers . . . Such As ATT & All Their Subsidiaries. At Least That’s The Plan.
And As Canada & The USA Are Now Headed . . . Into some Very Serious Election Years, More Than Ever, THE VOICES OF RESTRICTED SPEECH, will do all they Can To Silence People Like Me.
And I’ll Do All I Can To Shout Freedom From The Top Of The Rafters.
This Is All Exciting Stuff . . . But It Won’t Be Free To Me – Not By A Long Shot.
THEREFORE . . . As Always – And Only If You Can Afford It – Please Help Fund This Massive & Necessary Upgrade of Galganov.com With Your Personal Check Or Money-Order, Made-Out & Addressed To:
PO Box 17
Williamstown, Ontario, Canada
If You’re Canadian & Have A Canadian Bank . . . E-Transfer Works Perfectly, Addressed To Howard@Galganov.com.
And Hopefully . . . Credit Card Support Will Soon-Enough Be Up & Running.
Until Then Though . . . Thank You All In Advance.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
