My Michelle Obama transcript has been removed from the Google database.
Google ^

Posted on 02/22/2008 1:13:45 PM PST by KayEyeDoubleDee

A few days ago, the transcript I posted of Michelle Obama's remarks was the first hit you got when you googled phrases like "we have to fix our souls", but now you can't see it anymore:

GOOGLE - we have to fix our souls
In fact, you can't see it even when you require that Google restrict its search to Free Republic:
GOOGLE - we have to fix our souls site:freerepublic.com

This thing must be hurting them badly if they've scrubbed it from Google.

Get the word out.

Not surprising. Google is a moonbat company in the first place.

Google hits matches to FR content within about 15 minutes now but it isn’t so good for older searches anymore.

Have you checked Yahoo?

In fact, you can't see it even when you require that Google restrict its search to Free Republic:

It does if you place the term in quotes:

"we have to fix our souls"

By placing the words in quotes, Google looks for the exact phrase on a site.

Without the quotes, it returns hits from sites as long as all the words appear on the page.

there's a whole bunch of them

The first of those is actually the Youtube audio which I posted.

HOWEVER, the text of the transcript, which lives only at Free Republic, is what has been scrubbed from Google.

The point is that you can't search on audio at Google, but you can search on text, and the text [what you can actually search on] is what has been scrubbed from the Google database.

Interesting. When I put your title in quotes, it pulls up a lot of references but not your original article:

Just as a test, I did the same thing with a different article and it did appear as the fourth result.

Google doesn’t maintain a database of every link it’s ever seen. As Google’s spiders fail to find links to threads (they fall off the main page and/or the spider has to crawl too deep into the link tree to see the page), Google will abandon that information.

To Google’s robots, the page has essentially disappeared. I reckon any thread (give or take) from around the same time would also fail to show up.

I’d also like to note (and I’m not trying to be rude), FreeRepublic is put together in a way that makes it almost opaque to web searches beyond the first few pages of News links.

Well, if anyone needs it, here it is, at least the pertinent portion:

In 2008, we are still a nation that is too divided. We live in isolation
, and because of that isolation, we fear one another. We don’t know our
neighbors, we don’t talk, we believe our pain is our own. We don’t realize
that the struggles and challenges of all of us are the same. We are too
isolated. And we are still a nation that is still too cynical. We look at it
as “them” and “they” as opposed to “us”. We don’t engage because we are
still too cynical. ...

Americans are not in debt because they live frivolously but because
someone got sick. Even with insurance, the deductibles and the premiums are
so high that people are still putting medications and treatments on credit
cards. And they can’t get out from under. I could go on and on, but this is
how we’re living, people, in 2008.

And things have gotten progressively worse throughout my lifetime,
through Democratic and Republican administrations, it hasn’t gotten better
for regular folks. ....

We have lost the understanding that in a democracy, we have a mutual
obligation to one another — that we cannot measure the greatness of our
society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our
greatness by the least of these. That we have to compromise and sacrifice
for one another in order to get things done. That is why I am here, because
Barack Obama is the only person in this who understands that. That before we
can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in
this nation.

Actually, my point was that there seem to be more than enough Michelle Obama transcripts to worry about one of ‘em getting lost! :-)

But my point is that I was the only one who typed up the ENTIRE transcript.

There are many partial transcripts floating around [e.g. at Captain's Quarters], but I took the time [and, believe me, it was a long time] to type up the entire transcript, and to seed the audio around the internet, and now Google has removed my transcript from their database.

Google is run by a bunch of liberals who feel free to post their favorites on their search engine. When I googled a project for my son to get documents on the atom bomb, there was some stuff on there that was someone’s opinion on how we were wrong to drop the bomb, etc. All I wanted was FACTS...Pick any topic and see what you find, its not good.

Which is the exact title that Google will link to. (Not just “We have to fix our souls”.

And sure enough - Number 1 hit was to Free Republic. But not what you think.

Google periodically flushes links from their database. They cannot main a database of search results that includes every page that ever existed on the internet.

Search.msn.com doesn’t bring up your page either. Maybe Microsoft is crawling with filthy liberal hippies.

Hi Jenny,

Not to start a lot of hate and discontent, but if you remove Michelle Obama from the equation, that speech could have been given by anyone.

In as much as the Americans in debt, the discussion of neighbors, etc., she is on target for a lot of people. The problem is that we do not know what their ‘fix’ is and therein lies the crux of the problem.

I, like many people are afraid that their style of ‘liberal’ facism is the fix that they want to impose upon us.
