Barbados Free Press Needs US$20

Hello Folks

Barbados Free Press is almost to the limit of free disk space at WordPress.com, and we need to upgrade to the next level – which costs all of US$20 for the next year. Such a deal!

We would gladly type in our credit card number except… that would provide a little trail for somebody to determine who we are.

The solution is at hand, thanks to WordPress.com…

It seems that any person who has a WordPress account – whether they have a blog or not – is able to purchase $20 of WordPress credits and transfer the credits to Barbados Free Press. This would happen without BFP knowing who the benefactor is.

Nice touch, WordPress.Com! What an excellent way of keeping all those freedom blogs going without exposing the authors to discovery.

Here Is How We Will Do It!

If you can spare US$20 to keep Barbados Free Press running for another year, please email us at barbadosfreepress@yahoo.com.

Remember – we only need ONE $20 donation for the whole year. We don’t want any more than that ONE $20 donation.

It would be better if our supporter came from outside Barbados. There have to be many Bajans living in the USA (and we know that America is the land of milk and honey, right? 😉 )

We will choose one of the offers a random and email the donor a “ok, thanks! go ahead” message.

Again, we only need ONE US$20 payment for the whole year – so don’t put any money into the WordPress account unless we have asked you to be our ONE US$20 donation.

$20 total for one more year of BFP would seem to be a bargain!

Thanks, folks!

Thousands Of Monks And Protesters Murdered By Myanmar Government – Just Like China


Everyone is horrified about the thousands slaughtered in Myanmar over the past week. And so they should be.

Reports indicate that the government has dumped several thousand bodies in the jungle.

But as we look at the photo (above) of the body of a monk floating in a swamp, we might remind ourselves and our government that our new friend Communist China has murdered millions of their own people and continues to imprison, torture and murder people for the offense of being Christian.
