Google has no picture for Memorial Day?
Google ^ | 5-30-05 | Me

Posted on 05/30/2005 2:06:05 PM PDT by LowOiL

Google likes to put up nice little drawings on just about every holiday possible (always using their name "Google" as the centerpiece). Today --Memorial Day--- nothing...

Very rude and a spit in the face of our soldiers IMHO...

Very rude

I agree. I remember they had a dripping bucket logo to celebrate "water day" right when Terri Schiavo was being dehydrated. It seemed a bit tin-foilish to think that was done on purpose, but this one? It's a national holiday and we are at war!

They hold a double standard on sidebar advertising.

They also include DU among "news agencies" in news.google.com despite their hateful rhetoric and death threat posts.

Google administrators do acknowledge that there is a line which would cause them to drop a "news agency" but they claim that DU has not crossed that line.

Email the PR department of Google and ask if they company does not feel it worth noting on their website, why do they give the employees the day off?

Maybe, they are waiting for the real Memorial Day and not this fake "long weekend day".

You are obviously unaware of the various days that Google has recognized by changing their logo on those days

You are obviously wrong.

If anyone knows how to get O'Reilly's ear, I think this from Google should be "most ridiculous". If they take note of Earth Day, they can be respectful of those who gave their lives to make it possible for silly little geeks to become rich in Free America.

I'm aware of the Google political connections, but I think they worship the dollar more than anything else.

You are guilty of the same naivete that caused some conservatives to regard with bafflement the refusal of the major publishing houses on the East coast to publish conservative books, in the face of obvious commercial successes enjoyed by such books. Why, since these companies were ostensibly for profit, would they consciously refuse to publish surefire bestsellers?

Ann Coulter ran into the same issue when 3 major publishers turned her down before her latest was published. When asked the reason, one reportedly said that the main goal of that publishing house was to further national dialogue!! Imagine that.

Welcome to the world of the avowed leftist ideologue, where they would cut off their own nose, just to spite their opponent.

They didn't put anything up for Christmas Day, either. For a few days leading up to Christmas, they'd had some polar bears in a little scene, and that stayed up all throught the week up to New Year's Day.

Kind of a snap judgement on your part, don't you think? You feel it's impossible for someone to recognize the liberal bias in many companies while also believing Google probably didn't mean this as a "spit in the face"?

The Drudge Report, Free Republic, Microsoft, Yahoo, ESPN Net, those are all popular websites too. Are they bad as well for not incorporating a Memorial Day theme into their logos?

Your missing an important aspect. Those sites you mention as a rule don't have any holidays or commemorations incorporated into their logos or sites at any time, Google does. Google manages to remember every lefty and pagan "day" celebrated regularly.

Halloween:

International Women's Day:

Martin Luther King Day:

Earth Day (every year)

Ray Charle's birthday:

They purposely leave out Christmas every year and now have sunk so low as to "forget" memorial day this year. You mean to tell me they can commemorate Ray Charle's birthday yet not our war dead?

From now on it's dogpile for me. Goodby Google.

I just scrolled through the past years' logos. Doesn't look like they've ever recognized Memorial Day. Nor Labor Day. But they have quite a few quirky ones like World Water Day and Leonardo daVinci's birthday.

One big difference is that they don't typically alter their logos for holidays and causes, Google does.

It is an odd oversight.

When I went here, I found this:
"Hwang: Google makes a big effort to recognize holidays that aren't necessarily mainstream...."

So, maybe if they received some polite requests from folks who would like to see artsy logos on the mainstream American holidays, they might try and oblige.

Or maybe not. Who knows?

Billionaire leftists. It seems impossible that someone who lives the Capitalist American dream could urinate on it, but it happens all the time in LeftWorld.

One of Capitalism's greatest strengths is the money-making opportunities it gives to anyone. However, this same strength gives Capitalism its greatest weakness, because if anyone can make money, then people who want to destroy Capitalism can also make money from it. When they do, they can then fund their dreams of destroying Capitalism. Think of Soros and Michael Moore.
