They’re an amazingly successful, private corporation with deep government ties, but should we be wary of Google?



Partial transcript via Mediate:

“I’m really not sure that I want my search engine involved in government overthrows, good or bad. What I want from a search engine is good search results. This is not the issue. I’m not afraid that Google is reading my email, or tapping your phone lines, or stealing Grandma’s recipes. That kind of paranoia is reserved for the Left during the Bush administration with Microsoft. What I’m starting to look at is Google and Google as a whole.

I’m just not sure, as I look into Google, that I want to use their products anymore unless I have to. And some of their products I think I have to. I’m not leading any boycott. I hate boycotts. You do with your time, your money, and your information what you want. For me, personally, I’m not feeling real comfortable about the current direction of Google the more I find out.”
