Google on Veterans' Day

Google has finally acknowledged Veterans' Day. I learned from Sister Toldjah that it's the first time in eight years the company has done so. Better late than never, I suppose:

Too little, too late. Dogpile has been way ahead of them in this department.

I'm not so sure it's for Veterans day. All the helmets are WW1 style, so it looks like it specifically for Remembrance day (Armistice day).
Most leopards don't change their spots, including those cats.

Or I could just be a little cranky it's not perfect.

well, either way they need some positive reinforcement since they are moving in the right direction.

Is it just me? I don't see that logo when I go to their site. I see several stories about it but can't see that it is actually implemented.

Hmpf. I notice the only helmets they used were World War I era helmets.

Can't bring themselves to celebrate the last 80 years, looks like.

They totally skipped Arbor Day too. Liberal traitors.

I was thinking the same thing....a subtle sort of support for Veterans Day.

The helmets are a bit confusing, but if you hover your cursor over the image the words Veterans Day pop up. If you click onto it, you get Veterans Day search results.

Yes, they are acknowledging Remembrance Day rather then Veterans Day. These are actually two different things. One is for the Commonwealth's soldiers killed during war and started after WWI (thus the British Brodies helmets). It is similar to what we do for Memorial Day. The other is an American day started after WWII for honoring military service members. I imagine the liberal hatemongers at Google would like to pretend it is not Veterans day by replacing it with a different holiday from a different country. They do evil well there.

There is nothing ridiculous about this. Picking wars and battles is very American. Think not? Make your case.

At least they weren't French WWI helmets.

I've posted it before, but it's always worth another read.

We are all sufferers from history, but the paranoid is a double sufferer, since he is afflicted not only by the real world, with the rest of us, but by his fantasies as well.

Meh, I started using other search engines 4 or 5 years ago after I got tired of them celebrating everything not American and nothing American at all.

I don't care what they do now and as far as I'm concerned the only 'positive reinforcement' they'll get from me is my continued use of anyone else's search tools.

Google loaded .03 seconds slower yesterday than it is today, providing a lesser searching experience on Veterans Day. Those traitors!

And did you notice that there was no Vietnam imagery in that logo? Huh? Huh? Who's with me?!
