Comments: Stay Classy, Google

I am slow to jump on Google for not doing a Memorial Day theme for the reason that Google, while an American corporation, caters to an international user base. While Memorial Day is a distinctly American holiday, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay's Everest summit is an internationally recognized event. I think that this is the reason why Google failed to theme its homepage for Memorial Day but did so for the Everest summit, not b/c Google was trying to snub the American armed forces.

I'm quick to call that seditious dis-information conglomerate 'googlag'.

'Don't be evil' is simply newspeak for 'globalism - and at any cost'.

Did you hear that ViaCom is suing googlag / youtube for one billion dollars in copyright infringement?

This comes on the heels of allahtube telling Sen Lieberman 'are you kidding?' when asked to take down jihadist propaganda.

One more in a long line of abuses and 'eff you America' which googlag shows a corporate propensity for....

Simply search my site for 'don't be evil' and you'll see a whole catalog of googlag's disdain for individual liberty & public decency all across this globe.

My recommendation: don't be evil - don't use googlag or allahtube.

Lone Star: Google refuses to do Memorial day. They run different sites around the world as needed, and will celebrate other U/S. only holidays. They also celebrate non-U.S. Holidays.
If they were like Clusty, who never changes for anyone, it may be different. But it isn't like that at all. They simply refuse to do Memorial Day.

LoneStar, Yahoo and Ask.com also serve international audiences, and yet they found a way to honor our fallen heroes.

Not to mention that fallen American servicemen have made a lasting impact on the rest of the world. If not for their sacrifice, you might be speaking German today.
