Google Two months ago, Google announced its intention to stop censoring search results in China, while also stating it may even leave the country altogether. The announcement followed the news that Chinese crackers had attempted to crack the accounts of human rights activists. The search giant has stayed true to its word: starting today, search results are no longer censored in China. Google employed a clever trick to get there: they reroute Chinese users to the uncensored Hong Kong version of Google. Instant update: China has already responded: "Google has violated its written promise it made when entering the Chinese market by stopping filtering its searching service and blaming China in insinuation for alleged hacker attacks."

If it weren't for "socialism", dude, you probably would have spent your childhood working in a coal mine instead of going to school. OK?

Now turn off Fox News and get yourself some real education.

My country tis of thee, has a long standing tradition of state sanctioned INSTITUTIONALIZED racism and sexisim and classism. I am disgusted by all of this finger pointing. I was taught things in class that were provably false (even to a teenager) and patently implemented to give the simplest stupidist answer with as little collateral damage to the other lies that we have been taught.
It is EXACTLY moral relativism to call out China without talking about WHY we are calling out China (At least part of the reason is to not look at what we have working here)
