Posted on 05/26/2014 7:54:36 AM PDT by george76
Google frequently decorates its logo to celebrate various holidays and special events.
Last year Google honored Cesar Chavez on Easter Sunday.
Last week Google celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the Rubiks Cube.
But Memorial Day this year drew a blank.
Meanwhile, heres the Bing homepage today.
(Excerpt) Read more at thegatewaypundit.com ...
I use Bing and loved what they did today.
Only one reason of so many why I almost never use google.
Even white stenciled G.I. styled lettering over an olive field might have given the appearance of at least caring in the slightest.
Up yours Google.
I expect nothing less from Google... and when it’s Anal Sex Appreciation Day, it’s all rainbows and unicorns.
Hmmm....Gateway Pundit doesn’t have a graphic honoring Memorial Day veterans either.
Switched to make bing he screen
Google joins administration BO to dis our military and fallen
They do it to gain customers. Wrong kind
Yeah, it was much too tough for them to come up with a logo to honor our heroes, but I’m sure they’ll be able to come up with one for National Typewriter Day or whatever nonsensical days of celebration coming up.
I’ve fired FireFox and will never use another Mozilla creation. Firing google leaves me with Safari which is a terrible browser.
Liberals showing their true colors.
Every time I use google to look up something I seem to get ads about the product or place.
Try it, google a location, hotel, object - all of a sudden the pop-ups start.
I think it was here on FR, someone reported they used the word ‘nitpicking’ and for a while got popups for head lice medicine.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? OR WHERE THIS IS?
This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry division. It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in Fort Hood, Texas.
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad.
Kalat was so grateful for the America's liberation of his country; he melted 3 of the heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American soldiers and their fallen warriors.
Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.
To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrades in arms.
Do you know why we don't hear about this in the news? The media avoids it because it does not have the shock effect. But we can do something about it.
We can pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave military who are making a difference.
And please pass this on!
Wow, switching to Bing then.
Had enough of these libtards.
Their heart’s just not in this patriotism stuff.
It is lost on these liberals that the only reason they could have a company like “Google” in the first place, is because of the Patriots that gave them the right. Sadly, the Progressives will never get it...until they achieve their ultimate aims of destroying our way of life, and they will be rolled into the darkness they created.
Surprised at ‘Dogpile’...they have used patriotic themes in the past...must be some infiltrators from Google on the payroll. Interesting that you saw a homage to the NHL playoffs...when I check in at Dogpile; their ‘Cinco de Mayo’ page is still up. Go figure. As for ‘Google’..? Well...I prefer not to use the language that describes them adequately.
I use ixquick and bing, I avoid google as much as possible.
Thanks to DuckDuckGo, I pretty much have no need for google.
I got rid of Mozilla when the thought control commissars took over. I have used Opera ever since. I will not use Mozilla again.
Are you also blocking Google Analytics? That’s where a good portion of their income is derived from. I use Opera browser and even on the create Reply page Google Analytics is there. I use Ghostery to block them.
Yes I am seeing a dog in a Hockey uniform with a hockey stick.
Most stuff on Snopes belongs in the same ashcan as Google.
So many Americans have their perception of the Iraq war from the insurgents’ and supporting media point of view.
In 2004 when we convoyed throughout the southern part of the country we were often mobbed by cheering crowds whenever we got stuck in traffic. But the media focused on Fallujah, Ramadi and insurgent strongholds in Baghdad. All they cared about was Coalition and Iraqi deaths at the hands of the insurgents they supported.
Anybody that knows more than a little bit about Google will know that they take pride in going off the beaten and predictable path. So yes, their "doodles" are going to often surprise you and commemorate the birthday of some obscure zoologist or the Independence Day of some African country you never heard of. What they aren't going to do is put up the same tired cliched images that you would expect on the "traditional holidays."
It's just Google being Google. Founded by a couple of overgrown kids who still roller blade around campus and come up with wacky concepts like geeky looking glasses that record video and cars that drive themselves. Sometimes their wacky ideas work and sometimes they don't. But they aren't afraid to shun the conventional and dare to be different.
Plus, they are billionaires many times over and really couldn't care less that some of us get our panties in a twist because they didn't come up with a special doodle for Memorial Day.
Now the ‘Cinco de Mayo’ image is gone; replaced by the generic dog with a ball.
I am now.
This isnt the first time.
A version of Pale Moon that runs on a Mac, I hope!
Sadly, duckduckgo also did not recognize Memorial Day.
They truly are the scum of the earth.
I hate gargoyle (as I call it).
I try to avoid it at all cost, including closing my gmail account and using other search engines. I would love nothing better than to see them crash and fail.
But they’re only getting stronger.
Money doesn’t buy class.
Thanks for sharing. I only use Bing and really like it and appreciate that they always have appropriate pictures up for holidays. My nephew likes the pictures and likes to click on the interactive boxes - good learning experience (for me, too). Won’t use Google - too many privacy issues.
This dissing America is a much bigger issue. Been using Bing at work (long twisted IT story), and like it. Well Google, Bing just became my default search engine for use at home too.
I use Internet Explorer
I use Internet Explorer and almost all pop-up ads are blocked (not sure if it does it automatically, or if one needs to click on their settings to do so - - not much of a techie - - it just works for me).
