Google has been doing the Sesame Street thang for four days - nothing about the fall of the Berlin Wall yesterday, for example.

....another reason to always use Bing instead of Google.

And lets not forget how they failed to note the 20th anniversary of the take-down of the Berlin Wall.

and it’s been all “effing” week long! Enough of the Sesame Street crap already, we get it! Would have been nice to honor the Marine Corps today. Problem is the libs running Google don’t care and probably never even gave it a thought!

Bing didn’t either, although they have a great pic of Sao’ Palo. But Bing doesn’t have a history of problems with their search engine theme like Google.

Bing did a great 9/11 tribute.

So ... It's called freedom of speech.

I'm a big fan of freedom of speech.

In this case, freedom of speech has helped us to know that Google considers "Sesame Street" more important that the fall of the Berlin Wall, or the founding of the United States Marine Corps.

That's a useful bit of information.

Well, it is the second of the Marine Corps’ two birthdays. The first was in July of 1834 when they got their own regulations. This was changed to the 10th of November after WWI so that they could spend two days drunk.

Google was founded and run by a bunch of Marxists and I refuse to use Google any more than necessary.
I use Yahoo most of the time.
I don't trust nor like Google.

I switched my Favorites to Bing a few months ago. Haven't missed Google even a little.

They do exactly the same thing, but Bing is much more pleasant visually, and they don't have a leftwing political agenda.

Google is a private company. If you don't like the fact they don't celebrate pro-American holidays, anniversaries, or footnotes, then don't use them

Is that thing still around? I thought Bing’s servers had melted under the load of pushing crap images onto every search request....

That's a useful bit of information.

It's also old information. Google is as leftist as they dare to be.

I use them, but only through a scraper. That way they can't target me for ads by my search terms. If everybody did it...well, I can dream....

That’s cool.

When the muzzie jihadis show up at Google’s offices to begin the beheadings, they can call BIG BIRD.

Days and DAYS of Sesame Street. NOTHING on the fall of the Communist constructed Berlin Wall.

Lousy Million Dollar Marxists. Bow the Chi-Coms, fools.

The fall of the Berlin Wall is not a pro-American holiday/anniversary, it is a pro-democracy/anti-Communist anniversary and it is telling to see those who choose not to “celebrate” (like our President).

Just sent it to my son. Happy Birthday Marines!!!!! May you live in glory forever. We'll uncork a bottle of JarHead Red this weekend at our family get-together in honor of the Corps.

Semper Fi!

All my love,

Marine Mom

Every time I visit google, then, I'm going to do one of the following searches:

"Sesame Street sucks"

Or

"I hate Elmo"
