    Remember when Google didn't even put a United States Flag on their home page, in honor of the millions of Veterans, living and dead, many of whom DIED to bring us the freedoms that we enjoy today, ON Veteran's Day?

    Well, those asshats at Google saw fit to honor St. Patrick's Day today, 3-17-10

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? :steamed:

    I'm descended from Irish stock, and I always wear some green on St. Patricks's day, (just a green shirt, almost always) but that's all the 'celebrating' I do.

    I just think EVERYBODY at Google needs to have their faces slapped.

    Preferably by ALL of the living Veterans, one after the other. :steamed: :steamed:

    Now don't get me wrong, I don't think putting a cute green...whatever...on Google's home page is a BAD thing.

    I would just like to see some of our OTHER, AT LEAST EQUALLY IMPORTANT holidays, get honored in the same way. :steamed:

    I mean: would anyone have gotten UPSET, if on Veteran's Day, there was an American Flag or two, gracing the home page of Google? :faint:

    Changing of the google logo is a cute little way for them to celebrate easily recognized holidays on a page seen in every country worldwide.

    I wouldn't get so worked up. You're making it sound like they took a dump on the flag on the 4th of July

    To me Google is like toilet paper, I wipe my arse with it whenever needed.

    So... was it a chain-email that told you to be mad, or did you just not see the stoic, uniformed, faceless soldier representing all of our veterans, the admiration of the child, and the flag in hand?

    To the OP's credit, Google did not commemorate Veteran's Day for many years.

    But they do now (started in 2007 I believe). So facts need to be checked before perpetuating lies, probably from a chain email. Good reputations get ruined that way...

    How do you expect to know that was a soldier? Only half of his body was shown. :rofl:

    It was building. Consider the number of holidays since 11/11
