We fired Google!

As you have noticed, we have moved our site from Blogspot (which is owned by Google), We have changed our email address to no longer use gmail, we no longer use Google Docs to create the show notes. Why? You ask, simple. Hutch and I have a very strong sense of patriotism. and we have said many times that we will defend this country in any way we can. and that is where this came from. Google have gone out of their way to commemorate various days, for example the birth of Pac man and so forth. This week was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Tuesday’s commemoration on the Google home page was for Russian Day. (which we do not have a problem with). The problem came when they refused to do the same for Flag Day which was Thursday. So we had a discussion and decided to fire Google. I have canceled the email addresses. They will no longer be monitored, and after a week or so we will be deleting the site on blogspot, we just want to give our visitors a chance to see we moved to WordPress.

We would also urge you to do the same. This is an American company that can’t do a simple tribute on Flag Day but can celebrate Russian Worker day, Screw them. There are plenty of free services out there that provide free email addresses, hotmail, yahoo, and on and on. If it is web hosting WordPress works like a champ. I was even able to import all of our content with the click of a button.

If it looks like we are unapologetic Americans, you’re right. This is our little way of saying “NO MORE”.

Let us know what you think in the comments.

    Hells to the Yes!

  2. Good grief. Ridiculously over the top.

    Eric, to some it may seem over the top. However where do we draw the line at where we are willing to compromise our beliefs? I understand that getting pissed over Flag Day may be considered an over-reaction but when Google is willing to celebrate everything under the sun (the birth of Pac-Man, Russian Worker day) and they couldn’t put a simple flag on their site to commemorate the US. Screw them.

    In fact, we are much happier with WordPress than we were with Blogspot.
