Google Kills the Golden Goose- the Evidence

This story will give 3 examples of how Google needs to be slapped down for their unfair practices. This case will be made clearly with screenshot photos, but the next paragraph is dedicated to the defense of Google on one controversial decision.

Many said that Google caved in on their original mission statement of doing no evil when they agreed with the Chinese government to censure their search engine in order to get the powers that be to accept their presense on China's Internet. I disagree wholeheartedly. It's better to be in that major country with limitations than allowing another competitor. So, I completely disagree with the critics on that one. I think that was just good business.

3 Creeping Evils at Google:

1. In the screenshot photo above, it shows that Yahoo.com still outranks Google.com, yet if you have downloaded the Google toolbar, then you can see that in the past few months, Google changed their algorithms to make Google.com have a page rank of 10 while Yahoo.com has a page rank of 9. At the beginning of the summer of 2007. Google ranked Yahoo higher as they should. Granted this is a small and debateable infraction, but as time goes on, my bet is that you'll see Google taking advantage of their position in the search engine wars.

2. Look at the screenshot below and you'll see that on many natural searches, Google has cheated and put their Google Local program above all the natural searches. Google controls this space. The space is supposed to be the organic space, but Google has grabbed not only the advertising space above the natural searches, but now they are manipulating and controlling that sacred space that consumers have entrusted them with. End of the world? No, but it's a sign of Google's drift towards being sneaky. Of course they will say that consumers want this.

I think consumers would prefer untainted searches.

3. One that jumped out at me the other day was their new Google checkout logo (see photo below) that dominates the search page with logo leaping off the page with brilliant colors while all the competition remains in monotonous blue. The whole page is blue, but Google takes advantage of others competitors by not allowing them to use logos or color on the Adsense ads. If Google was fighting for financial survival, I'd cut them slack, but their stock is fast approaching the $1000 per share mark. This is absolutely spitting in the face of the advertisers that have made Google what it is today. Google is killing their own advertisers and making up special rules for their own products. They are headed down the anti trust Microsoft path. These are subtle things granted, but they are clear indicators of the creeping corruption you'll be seeing more and more of if we don't speak out. Can you image Google letting PayPal have the only colored logo on a search page?

Huckabee Passes Hillary in Polls

Hillary Clinton explains how she covers up her shady campaign finance dealings at an elite Hollywood fundraiser.

Most democrats are saying Hillary peaked early and is over the hill. Some are saying that the video that Hillary is trying to cover up is now exposing her for felony charges.

Why Hollywood Hates America- the Dirty Secret

It has frustrated many Americans as to why Hollywood's elite put out propaganda films that put Americans in a disgusting slant. They say to themselves, don't they understand their freedoms to say what they say was bought with the price of precious soldiers and yet they get to wallow in their millions yet get a big microphone to spit all over America like it's the cool thing to do. It's like street cred.

The reason they do it has little to do with their political beliefs and everything to do with their wallets. In many segments of movie sales statistics, foreign gross sales dominate domestic profits. For reference, check out the Reuter's "Hollywood, foreign movie theaters at odds on DVDs" article. One interested in this topic should, do some sniffing around on movie industry stats and they'll see why many directors and producers sell out America for money. Of course, some underlings like b-list actors and the like stand with the liberals because they are afraid that they won't get any work. If someone in the industry doesn't walk in lock step, then they get blacklisted. The power brokers will see to it that they'll "never work in this town again." The puppet masters will continue to repress independant and conservative film industry workers until the money runs out or they have their freedom to do what they want taken away. Then, they'll regret that they put the grease to the destruction of their own country.

Look at Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte & Naomi Campbell kissing the butt of pending dictator Hugo Chavez. Even as he destroys a free press in his country of Venezuela, these fine American's are over there in worship of him. It's cool to be a communist dictator's friend. The Hollywood liberals talk free speech and free thought, but in reality, they'd do anything within their power to detroy the careers of anyone who thinks differently from them.

To illustrate this further, just look at the constant tactics of the far left when anyone conservative speaks their thoughts in public. They shout them down and disrupt any possibility for others to hear a different perspective. They preach tolerance and acceptance, but they are often the most violent and controlling of all movements. Their hypocracy is blatant, but they are so brainwashed and desperately want to be accepted by their peers that they cave in to independant thoughts. Code Pink is another example of this. They think that any disruption is justified. To most they appear like brainwashed puppets. They just chant whatever their leader tells them to.

Cindy Sheehan, anti-war protester was the darling of the far left until she expressed some of her true feelings, then they abandoned her when she no longer spouted out whatever they told her to say.

It's all about the money. For example, Hillary Clinton, didn't want to come out and criticize lobbying groups like MoveOn.org when they ran a full page ad calling General Petraus- General Betray Us, but she was so afraid to have the money cut off that she pooped all over one of the finest patriots in our country. Just follow the money in Hollywood and follow the money in politics. Hillary embraces the money part not for the money as much as she speculates that the money will buy her power. Hillary will sell military secrets if she thinks it will buy her the Presidency. Bill Clinton sold us out by granting tons of access to the Chinese many of which spent many a night in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House, under testimony the Chinaman said he had a list of favors that he expected Bill Clinton to provide for the donations. That's why Hillary Clinton set up all these illegals campaign contributions from dishwashers from Chinatown. All this money was funneling through them under the radar. The Hill-Billy's have a clear history of this pattern. The Hillary Clinton/ Norman Shu scandal is just case in point in a long history of under the table backroom deals for money and power. Hillary Clinton would sell out America if she could just sit her buttocks in the Oval office seat.

Hillary will do anything for power. Anything.

Don't believe it? Just watch some of these videos on YouTube.com that tell the story with complete documentary footage. In particular watch the Peter Paul compaign coverup. On one video, Hillary Clinton tells how she is able to do unscrupulous things, then be the Teflon woman. One of the secrets she reveals on the film is to never leave an e-mail trail.

The Hollywood elite and the far left politicians sell out America for a brief moment where they believe they'll have the 15 minutes of fame in the history of world. They believe like Moussalini, that it's "better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand as a lamb," so screw America.

Many Social Bookmarking Services Not Ready for Prime Time

Bookmaking services on the web have made their mark. Not only can you save all your favorite sites online so that you can pull them up from any computer in the world, you can also make them public so that others can benefit from your selections as well. If you are following a guru online and if they have made their favorite bookmarks public, you can follow in their virtual steps to find what their research has led to. This can save you gobs of time. That's why they call if social bookmarking.

I found a directory of the most popular social bookmarking services and was shocked to discover that a huge percentage is either defunct or not functioning at the moment.

Good Social Bookmarking sites:

1. del.icio.us
2. ma.gnolia
3. Blinklist
4. StumbleUpon
5. Digg

The Worst Bookmarking Sites (the sites were not even functional or we got continuous error codes when we tried to sign up):

1. de.lirio.us
2. Excites
3. linkatopia
4. Linkroll
5. Looklater
6. Shadows
7. unalog This site says: "Registration is currently disabled while we finalize mezzanine funding."

Good luck to all. It's a dog eat dog world.
