Barak Obama, Christianist Theocrat

We’re going to keep on praising together. I am confident that we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth.

Senator Barak Obama

Google rejects host

A number of weblogs have a gripe with Google’s habit of honoring events and holidays for everyone except the USA, particularly Memorial Day. Google provided the laughably pathetic excuse that it was “too hard” to do a respectful design, so one weblog had a contest for designs and received a number of excellent ones. Google refused to respond further at that point. The LA Times had an article on it but didn’t provide the full background. That can be found here. The essence, as noted, is not that Google should do something, but that it’s suspicious that they do that thing except in certain, well defined instances.
