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...
I agree - I went to Google to look up the origin of Memorial Day, expecting the same picture, but nothing. It probably was meant as an insult.
Dogpile has a bouquet of white lillies!! Send your business to dogpile. I already complained to Google. Google is run by a bunch of spoiled-rotten sissy boys. They can't be bothered to remember where their freedom came from.
Thoughtless, I'll agree, but it's a stretch to call it a spit in the face.
Definitely not surprised. Coming right off the heels of Queen Victoria Day in Canada might have caused a backlog of cute little graphics needed to be made.
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.
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?
It is a bad decision on Google's part, but it hardly rises to the level of spitting in the faces of our troops. That would take a direct action to denounce the troops.
They had a graphic for that didn't they. I seem to remember it.
This is ABSOLUTELY on purpose. Check out the "suddenly billionaire" google princelings. They sent huge bucks to John Kerry.
Google is run by a bunch of leftists who have in the past used their search engine to promote the left's agenda. I only use Yahoo now (they are leftists too, but at least they keep it out of the searches).
Even on Earth Day Google had a little animation icon of plants and animals....
National Teachers Day they did the same thing too.
And who can forget the ever momentous World Water Day?
I will NEVER use google again.....that's it for me!
And the communist "International Women's Day".
I'm aware of the Google political connections, but I think they worship the dollar more than anything else. I doubt they would intentionally piss off anyone who is a potential profit. We'll have to disagree on this one, but thanks for the dogpile suggestion - looks like a good search engine.
No Veteran's Day graphics either.
You are obviously unaware of the various days that Google has recognized by changing their logo on those days, such as International Art Day, St. Patrick's Day and so on. Not doing so on Memorial Day is a direct and intentional spit in the face of the US military.
As I have indicated before, Google is one of the most leftist companies in the valley.
