I admit it. Google is my search engine of choice, and I have the google toolbar installed in my browser. However, after reading this article in which google removed ads that were against moveon.org, but has run other left-sided ads with no problem, I think it's time for change. Goodbye, google.
The article in question can be found here. The most egregious display? It said "Help Susan Collins stand up to Moveon.org". Oh my, such mud-slinging. Google routinely permits the use of company names such as Exxon, Wal-Mart, Cargill and Microsoft in advocacy ads, and had no problem with anti-Blackwater ads. Videos on google-owned 'YouTube' by Michelle Malkin, however, are taboo - and google had no problem letting her know they might just ban her from YouTube altogether.
Come on, people. Do you really want these over-inflated giants deciding what you can and cannot see anymore? Don't they have some sort of civic responsibility at all to play fair? Google is now a publicly traded company, and the best way to get our message across that we matter as much as google-using left-wingers, is to uninstall the google toolbar immediately, sell google stock if you have it, and encourage others to do the same. I can't believe this site - Blogspot.Com - uses gmail (google mail) sign-ins and is wrapped in google, and wonder how long until blogs that mention MoveOn, George Soros, or Al Gore, or John Edwards in an unflattering light are closed down and deleted for supposed "liability". Use your clout, or lose it.
