As I recently abandoned the micro-loan website called Kiva (don’t go there) due to its aiding Mohammedan despotism, I am now trashing Google for its flagrant and Godless collectivism.
On special days, Google has a tradition of putting photos of something relevant on its main page, the one with the search bar.
What did they display on Easter Sunday? A representation of Jesus? No, they put Cesar Chavez, the dead labor organizer. What in the world does he have to do with Easter? Nada.
Chavez did some real good work for the migrant farm workers. I’ll grant that, but he has his place, and Jesus has another.
Jesus owns Easter.
Chavez, of course, is a hero to the left-wingers, and Google is run by left-wingers. Google loves Obama, for instance.
Well, a guy must stand by his principles, so I’m dumping Google to the extent that I can. My main email is gmail, but I’m going to phase it out. One is judged by the company one keeps, and I don’t wanna smell bad.
I’m dumping Google’s Calendar too. And Chrome, which has been my alternate browser. I’m mostly a Firefox man. I’ll resurrect Opera as backup.
And I’ve switched my default searcher from Google to Bing, which is No. 3 after Google and Yahoo, and Yahoo Search relies on Bing to a great extent.
Bing is a Microsoft product. I wasn’t a fan of Bill Gates for a long time, but he’s looking good again. His Hotmail, an abysmal thing in recent years, is biting the dust, and Gates has debuted something dubbed Outlook.com.
It is not your daddy’s old Outlook, and it’s got a Calendar.
My Outlook email address is listed on the sidebar page titled Felipe if you want to send me a personal note — or wire me cash.
One Google product I will keep for now is Picasa, the photo site. I’m not willing to chop off my nose on principle. However, if anyone knows of a good substitute, please holler. It would have to be easy because I’m a simple man.
Dump Google. It smells bad.
