Google sucks- part 459837867631....

So, let me make sure I understand this right.....

The US government, in an effort to enforce laws that are on the books (whether you agree with the laws or not doesn't matter at this point), has requested of Google that they turn over some information that would reveal surfing habits. This would only be for users that log in as Google has no way of tracking the random dude searching for "Paris Hilton Naked" from Panera. The reasoning behind it is to help the government track down kiddie porn dealing scumbags. I think it's fair to say that liberal or conservative, we can all agree that kiddie porn=bad (although there is probably a Democrat out there reading this right now that is going to post a disagreement with me in the comments, right Danny?).
Anyway, Google refused, citing the need to conserve trade secrets. Not sure how search results would show trade secrets, but ok, let's give them the benefit of the doubt.
THE NEXT FRIGGIN DAY the Communist Chinese government demands that Google not return results that would give their citizens information about simple stuff like freedom, liberty, revolution, and other 'controversial' subjects, Google bends over, grabs their ankles and says "Sure whatever you say, my comrade brothers".
Now, do I need to write a long dissertation about how this completely illustrates my point about Google being anti-American, or can you connect the dots?
Conservatives in my reading audience, I know the answer. Libs, I'll draw a picture for you later.

Bottom line, Google sucks.
