Google Recognizes July 4th, and Other Signs of the Apocalypse

Hey, maybe there’s hope after all. It’s the 4th of July, and Google, which often completely ignores holidays that have anything to do with the things that are responsible for our freedom, is actually recognizing the 4th in a positive fashion. Don’t tell them though that those fireworks represent tools of war.

I’m shocked. I thought for sure Google would instead instead honor the birthday of Ron Kovic.

If you live long enough, you see everything:


This is surprising, as on June 6th, the anniversary of D-Day, the day the Allies began the final push to save the world from tyranny, Google instead honored the birth of Spanish painter Diego Velasquez. On Memorial Day Google did nothing and used their regular logo.

So what gives? What’s the big deal about the 4th of July for Google? I’ll Google it and get back to you.

Have a fun and safe 4th of July everybody, and let’s not forget what this day is all about.

Update II: Jesse Helms, conservative defender of the Constitution (which is why the MSM will spend the next couple of days bashing him), has joined John Adams and Thomas Jefferson by passing away on the 4th of July. Rest in peace, Senator Helms.
