The Evil Ways of Google (or yet another reason why "conservatives' need to find a better way to spend their time)

Now that republicans have made sure that children don't have access to health care and farmers don't have a sufficient labor force to harvest their crops, the "conservatives" have moved on to important things like chastising presidential candidates for not wearing tacky American flag pins on their lapels and declaring Google "unamerican".

To celebrate the anniversary of Sputnik, Google did the unthinkable and created a special Google logo for the day. Fifty years ago we were in a cold war and space race with the USSR. Allegedly, we are not enemies and we aren't supposed to hate the Russians anymore. I guess some of these old dinosaurs didn't get the memo. Not to mention the fact, that the Russians did us a favor by launching Sputnik because it put our space program into high gear. Sometimes you need a kick in the pants when you are trying to get to the moon. Besides, whoever said that space belongs to America? And in all fairness Google also commemorated the anniversary of the Lunar Landing (July 20, 2005) with this:




To prove their "point", they have also blasted Google for not making spacial logos for things like Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. There are even rumors that did not make a special logo for other holidays like the Fourth of July. They did and if you don't believe me or want to take a look at their logos you can go here.

What is this country coming to? If we don't agree, then one of us is now unamerican? The irony is so rich because the freedom to disagree was so important to our founding fathers that when they drafted the Bill of Rights this was first on their list (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances). Frankly, all of these rabid conservatives that start all of this talk about disagreeing with what this administration is doing or celebrating achievements that non-Americans have made to science being unamerican, then they are the ones that are unamerican. And they can go to hell.

I'm pissed at Google because they didn't create a special logo for Secretary's Day. Bastards.

I'm with you. Of course the great all knowing emperor of the West knows all. At least George and compnay think so. Have you noticed how many people are now writing books bashing this republican? I hope Google continues to remind us of where we have been and where we are going.

Well let's hope Google celebrates the signal achievements of this administration and maybe these yahoos will shut the hell up. Google can do special logos for Mission Accomplished, Hurricane Katrina, Abu Ghraib, Alberto Gonzalez...

Evil Spock wishes Google ran America. If they did, Evil Spock wouldn't waste so much time trying to run for president in 2012.

Btw, liked Independence Day with the cats and sparklers. Makes absolutely no sense though.

i am PROUD to now be "unamerican". Our politfuckers have made pride in our country an impossibility for me. i shall fly the peace flag and speak henceforth in glottal clicks.

jill: what a different world we would live in if google were in charge. for one thing our space program would be really going places...

capitol dave: he has really made some "progress" in his work to put us back in the dark ages of civilization.

evil spock: i guess that means you are still running because i think google is too busy making new logos to run the world.

nervana: mmmmm click clack click pop.
