So today is Flag Day and Google has no doodle to celebrate it. They can celebrate every birthday for people I have never heard of, and independence day for The Philippines and God knows what country, but they can't do a doodle for our Flag Day.

Bing however does have a graphic celebrating it.

    Yep. Bing written all over it.

    Google has never made anything look nice.

          I urge people to **Boycott Google** permanently if you're not already. Do not give those creeps so much as a page-hit.

          I switched to Bing as my primary search engine something like eight years ago - at the time that Google meekly agreed with Commie China's demand that it censor search results, before they reversed that policy under backlash. Since then, these creeps have done their "doodles" for everything from Moroccan Independence day to Pippi Longstocking's "Birthday" - and on Veteran's Day 2010 posted a "doodle" that sandwiched the American flag between an Islamic crescent and a mushroom cloud. They've flatly refused, after half a dozen years of annual complaints, to so much as acknowledge the existence of Flag Day or Memorial Day with their "doodles."

          There is something wrong - nay, evil - at Google.

          Here's a short (!) list of what Google thinks is worthy of commemoration via "doodle" while Flag Day and Memorial Day are not:

          - Moroccan, Panamanian, Paraguayan, Argentinian, Bolivian, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Philippine, Senegalese, Ghanian, Latvian, Estonian, Dominican, Lebanese, Kenyan, Ugandan, Kazakhstanian, Croatian, Polish, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Korean, Ukranian, Brazilian, Nicaraguan, El Salvadoran, Costa Rican, Mexican, Belizean, Venezuelan, Uruguayan, Peruvian, Nigerian, Algerian, Vietnamese, Chilean and Honduran Independence Days (yes, one for each)

          - Megusto (a Portugese Autumn festival)
          - "Earth Day"
          - Day of the Dead (Mexico)
          - Egyptian Election Day
          - Turkish National Sovereignty and Children's Day
          - Bulgarian Liberation Day
          - ANZAC Day - (New Zealand)
          - ANZAC Day (Australia)
          - Queen's Day (Netherlands)
          - Shanghai World Expo
          - Patios Cordobeses (Spain)

          - Carnival (Brazil)
          - Korean Lunar New Year

          - United Arab Emirates National Day
          - Thailand National Day
          - Singapore National Day
          - Finland National Day
          - Sweden National Day
          - Norway National Day
          - Bahrain National Day
          - Hungarian National Day

          - Sami National Day (Norway)
          - China National Day
          - Vietnam National Day
          - Belgium National Day
          - Swiss National Day
          - Denmark National Day
          - German Reunification Day

          In this voluminous context, it should be clear that the omission of Flag Day and Memorial day - in America - is both undeniable and intentiona. Which leads to the question of what Google's decision makers hate so much about the United States of America, the nominal country of their origin, nationality and corporate headquarters.

          Switching search engines when you're used to a different one is weird at first, but after eight years using Bing (also Yahoo,) now I wouldn't go back to using Google even if they spearheaded a worldwide campaign for reason, individual rights, individual privacy, laissez-faire capitalism and American Constitutional rights for all people. I urge each of you to dump them as well, and to urge others in your networks to do the same. Just copy and show them this list.
