Time to use aother search engine. Are there any owned by conservatives?
Bastille Day! Bwuhahahaha!
$crew Google, I've got my flag on the front porch and am going out the door to the local parade in a few minutes.
Thanks for the heads-up on this. Yes, they have had logos for everything else, even the Olympics. They are clever, but now I will be on the watch for the lack of any patriotic themes. The irony is that veterans have fought and are fighting for the very freedom and good quality of life that the people behind this company are currently enjoying.
Go here and sample one our FR tributes to Veterans through graphics and poems. Screw Google.
I removed Google (its toolbar) when they put hearts and flowers on my computer for Valentine's Day. I learned to despise Google when they insisted on using joint o gether.org asm as a 'news' source. When I questioned them on that, I was given a boilerplate nyah-nyah answer.
Google is a left-coast left-wing operation. I abuse them when I must.
I don't know the political leanings of the owners, but from a technical standpoint recommend you try www.clusty.com for searching. (Clusty is short for cluster, as in the engine they developed.) It has features the others don't (e.g. they group the results on the left side for easier parsing.) They're now my primary search resource.
Thanks for the suggestion, I will check that one out.
I use Dogpile search engine. I don't like Google as I get screwy results.
I sent emails to all these losers:
Google Media Hotline
I THINK that Bill Gates of MS is a Bush supporter. Perhaps someone else knows for sure.
(This is my first post to FR tho I've been lurking for ages. FR has become my number one source of news and excellent commentary. :) Anyway ... hopefully the link turns out okay.)
Thanks. I will speak to them about this.
I used to find old FreeRepublic articles easily through Google. Not anymore.
As someone who spends an extensive amount of time on the Google site, I'm truly disappointed. But, since Bill has donated major $$ to the Republican party (as well as several Demoncrats too, but more towards the good guys), I guess I'm going to have to switch when their engine gets up and going.
Truly disappointing, but not unexpected.
Thanks for the info. I had already emailed google. they are making millions in this great country. F.... them!
I too will switch to another search engine. come on, hurry up Gates!
My understanding was that Gates was quite a liberal, but perhaps he re-thought his position after Clinton/Reno caused him so much grief. remember "a conservative is merely a liberal who got mugged!!"
Now it just sucks.
