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 soulsIn 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
What they are doing is censoring information.
Obviously this story is hurting them badly, and they want it removed from the public consciousness.
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.
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.
I've been here almost a couple of months now, and yours is one of the most on-the-point posts I have ever seen. Brevity is...wit.
Yahoo is your friend:
I noticed that Google has turned on Hillary and, buried Michelle to protect her. There isn’t any anti-Obama stuff up. Guess we now know who they are backing.
See post #12
Even though it wasn’t yours, I found many references when I typed in “we have to fix our souls” without the quotation marks.
You are right, sorry — on the Google search this came up:
“YouTube - Michelle Obama: We have to fix our soulsVideos, Channels. Michelle Obama: We have to fix our souls ... Transcript here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-n... Excerpts from speech which Michelle ...

And since it looked like a direct link to an FR posting, I though it was. After your post to me, I did follow the link and it went to youtube, but you fortunately posted a link to your post of the treansctipt on FR and indirectly one could get there — but you are absolutely right, Google didn’t pick it up and showed at FR.
Right - but it's been scrubbed from Google.
I didn’t post that. But it doesn’t matter, because you know what they meant, right.
Try it again in a few hours [or tomorrow], and see if you still get the same result.
As I mentioned earlier.
I just bumped this thread........ http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1972093/posts
I thought that generates traffic and therefore signals Google and other search engines that hits to the site are heavy.
And that the more hits a site generates, the higher in the placement that it will be found.
Is that not true anymore?
Yes, that's the way it normally works - and, indeed, until a few days ago, my transcript was the #1 hit at Google.
But someone at Google has gone in and completely removed my transcript from their database.
Or maybe not. Now when you google Michelle Obama - We have to fix our souls - our souls are broken [AUDIO & TRANSCRIPT]
What do you think you get?
That’s right. This thread!
