Don’t let it get to you. They are not pro American. IMO

I did not notice. I deleted them for the way they acted on Veteran’s day several years ago.

I didn’t realize they were still in business.

Pearl Harbor? Is that a city on the New Jersey coast? /sarc The greatest generation is just about gone and we will all be the sadder for their passing. My only fault with them is that they gave us the sixties generation. The beginning of the end to the greatest country ever conceived by man. Before anyone gets upset, I am a product of the sixties and am not proud of it.

Yep I guess it's a big deal to some.

Once again Pearl Harbor Day ignored by Yahoo and Google.

It was not entirely unexpected to see them pass on the opportunity to honor our brethren who passed on that infamous day or to salute the resolve of the American spirit. Google turning into a defacto arm of the liberal establishment is a shame, and actually quite disturbing.

In other news, however, Obama's young daughters dined on Japanese fare at their elite private school for lunch today. The school claims the timing was purely coincidental. How oblivious to history does a school need to be to miss this?!?!?

“The greatest generation is just about gone and we will all be the sadder for their passing.”
There’s actually still over 2 million WWII vets left, which is more than I thought there’d be. I didn’t expect Google to say anything about the PH anniversary anyway.

It is simply amazing the things they will celebrate, but it is truly telling in what they don’t.

My dad was in fought in Africa then was in on the invasion of southern France where he by chance found my soon to be mother. He never talked about it much. Wish he were still here so I could pick his brain.

I’m grateful they didn’t celebrate Pearl Harbor Day with graphics of streamers, confetti, and parades. That’s what I would expect from those commie libs.

They chose to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth over Abraham Lincoln's. They haven't honored George Washington either. Only US president ever included in a Google logo is John Kennedy.

No because I have been using Bing instead. FWIW, results are usually about the same for either one.

It hardly matters to me. I remember Dec 7 as Pearl Harbor day. It’s a day of remembrance not a day of celebration.

I’ve manned the rail several times while entering Pearl Harbor and have stood on the memorial. They are both sad and contemplative moments.

I don’t need Google, Yahoo or Bing to remind me and I don’t care if they ever have special headlines for tragedies. We’d be seeing them 365 days a year.

My grandfather died back in 1994. He never said much about his service in the Pacific, and I doubt anyone was going to get anything out of him.

As I said, I was surprised there’s still that many vets. Guess it’s a combination of modern medicine and the sheer number of them (16 million Americans served in WWII).

Still, it’s kind of sad knowing I’ll live to see the last one go in about 20-25 years time.

Not a surprise. They NEVER acknowledge siginficant holidays.

Not 9/11.

Not Veteran’s Day.

Not ANY truly American holdiay.

Glad I’m not the only one who noticed that.

No offense, but they probably would have done something offensive.

Sometimes it’s better if liberals do nothing.

Google never has anything to commemorate American holidays that are connected to, well, America. That you are saddened only means that you have only just noticed.

Bing had a photo of the Pearl Harbor Memorial on Oahu, HI. Stop "googling", go Bing.

Did not even notice and I used Google about 10 times today. I certainly don’t get my Pearl Harbor insight from the Google homepage. I saw a lot of Pearl Harbor honors on Facebook and Free Republic. I only use Google to gain information on a particular subject I am looking up.

Too bad the red diaper doper baby generation never grew up. I wish adults were in charge again. And that goes for education, scientific endeavors, and media (news and entertainment), not just public office.

Google searches ain’t what they used to be. The algorithms suck now and you can’t view cached content (even when it appears in the summary of the match on a page).

Barack said WE dropped The Bomb on Pearl Harbor. He wouldn’t lie. Michelle said our history would have to change. Maybe this is what she meant.

No. I didn't notice. Did NASCAR, Walmart, Cabella's or Yahoo! modify their homepages to recognize the anniversary?

I'll give you a hint. The answer is no.

I can read them on dialup, but not on my Wi-Fi'd laptop.

Please, everybody cheer up—today's Google image is of a scene that attempts to portray a Commie Mexican artist.

Today, they’re celebrating that commie Mexican painter, Diego Rivera.

Yes, I should be tarred and feathered but nasty google works best for me. Yahoo freezes my computer. Bing has too many annoying pop ups.
