Google Tributes (Mourns?) National Parks in Oct. 1 Logo
Google ^

Posted on 09/30/2013 10:01:33 PM PDT by DaveLoneRanger

Weird that they didn’t mourn the EPA, NSA, Dept. of “Education” (Programming) or the Dept. of Labor being furloughed. Those freeloaders get no respect I guess.

With much of Yosemite in ashes no less.

Idiots probably think that fire was "Natural."

I have to think it was scheduled well in advance, and not influenced by immediate events. But who knows.

Nobody celebrates the “123rd anniversary” of anything.

The lefty enviros want us to leave nature alone anyway, right? Shouldn’t they be happy human parasites won’t be stomping all over and littering on the purity of mother earth?

Better yet, will Michelle have to get up in the morning and make the pancakes?

The decrease in activity and driving back and forth to government jobs should also help cut down on carbon emissions and slow down globull warming.

The AF flight crew and the mechanics could use a break.

They have been too busy.

Seriously.

I don't like Google, but I have to admit: Google Doodles are scheduled (AND TESTED!) months in advance.

Liberals such as “Google” NEVER celebrate “rugged Americana.”
