    I have been frustrated with google. I have been getting directed to leftie sites when I click on the links on the results page. I notice that it happens when I am looking for articles lately. To test it, I just typed in "best argument against socialism" and got the results page with many different options. I clicked on three different ones and was taken to a page called Green Effects Media and was treated to ads for books with liberal writers with everything from greedy Wall Street to global warming.

    I think something is up. It's getting harder to find articles on Solyndra and such, not that many in the media bothered putting much out there. It seems like anything that might be negative toward Obama is hard to find on google. What you get are leftwing sites. I don't like this type of control over information.

    I went to a site with many different search engines and had better luck. I found these.

    Obama Administration Purchases Google ‘ObamaCare’ Search Results

    UPDATED–Google Ad Words Win for the White House: Even They See the Value in “ObamaCare” | The Dangerous Servant

    There have been neutral parties who have gone through the health care bill and dissected it for us, but apparently Obama doesn't want us reading all that. Instead, we get directed to his propaganda site. Obama doesn't like the term "Obamacare." I think it's fitting that his name is associated with that piece of crap legislation. But he doesn't want us reading about what's in the bill, so purchased search terms for people trying to get to the truth.

    Who is paying google for rights to these search terms?

    So, it wasn't just me. When you seek information on google, you are directed to sites approved by Obama. You can find some dissenting views if you look a little harder, but don't expect google to be helpful since they seem to be carrying Obama's water these days. I have never seen such a paranoid president. He is obsessed with controlling information. I wonder if google automatically reports IP addresses searching for dissenting views to AttackWatch. Somehow, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Google's algorithm includes number of hits, number of redirects, amount of time spent on each link, and the suspected political leaning of the site.:)

    Bejeebers folks, it appears Santa did not bring you a clue. Maybe next year.

    Obama has money invested in Google and I don't trust them anymore. If I want to find great quotes and arguments on why socialism sucks, I don't care to get results praising the virtues of socialism and a list of Obama's views, which is what I got.
