Perhaps some of you have noticed that Google occasionally changes their logo to fit holiday themes.

veteransday2010ps.jpg
Veterans Day is an annual United States holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is observed on November 11. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

But that's not what this thread is about.

The true Americans among you have noticed that Google has defiantly rendered our American flag in a plume of smoke and the glow of fire, with the red crescent of Islam standing behind it.

Don't believe me?

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/5998332/google_veterans_day_controversy_american.html
Exactly. Way to go, Google. Give crazies such as Pamela Geller, Terry Jones and Tea Party patriots the fuel they need to wage an all-out slugfest of vitriol against Islam for ruining an American tradition. The Google doodle is distasteful at best, hateful at worst, for this Veterans Day.

Your Google doodle is supposed to enlighten and educate those who click on it, not cause a rift between two world powers.

In a civilized society we need to show respect. We show respect by opening the door for the elderly. We show respect by thanking a soldier for fighting for us. We show respect by saluting the flag when in uniform. We show respect by not desecrating someone's sacred symbol.

We real patriots aren't alone. Just search Twitter or Openbook for some permutation of Google, flag, and crescent.

And now, Oklahoma is trying to impose Sharia law.

MUSLIMS!

    Meanwhile, what does it matter what a blog nobody reads says?
    Why is this given any weight at all as a "national point of conversation" when the conversation seems to be between one crazy guy and the everyone else scratching their heads?

    I will come to a time in my backwards trip when November eleventh, accidentally my birthday, was a sacred day called Armistice Day. When I was a boy, and when Dwayne Hoover was a boy, all the people of all the nations which had fought in the First World War were silent during the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of Armistice Day, which was the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
    It was during that minute in nineteen hundred and eighteen, that millions upon millions of human beings stopped butchering one another. I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind.
    Armistice Day has become Veterans' Day. Armistice Day was sacred. Veterans' Day is not.
    So I will throw Veterans' Day over my shoulder. Armistice Day I will keep. I don't want to throw away any sacred things.
