Take a Stand Against Google

In October 2006, a former CIA case officer claimed that Google is very involved with the CIA. Robert David Steele also claimed that the CIA provided Google with seed money when it was starting out.

That’s all bad enough, if true. But now Google is playing politics in Washington D.C. 

Google CEO Eric Schmidt campaigned for Barack Obama and was on the Obama transition team along with three other Googlers. Now, Google is ready to capitalize on its backing of President Obama and pursue its agenda in the nation’s capital.

Rumors have recently circulated that Google is lobbying for a law allowing the sale of electronic medical records (which we will all be compelled to have if that part of the Obama “stimulus package” remains intact) – a rumor that Google denies:

Google does not sell health data. In fact, one of our most steadfast privacy principles is that we don’t sell our users’ personal data, whether it’s stored in Google Health, Gmail, or in any of our products. And from a policy perspective, we oppose the sale of medical information in the health care industry.

The thing is, Google doesn’t have to sell your medical data to advertisers. All they have to sell are certain keywords like “diabetes”, “pregnancy”, “cancer”, and so on to advertisers much as they do now with their AdSense program.

The difference could be, however, that Google could know what health concerns you have based on your electronic medical record. You could then receive targeted advertising whether you are actively searching those terms or not. Don’t believe me? Wait for it.

So how can you search the web without Google? Easy! 

 Ixquick Protects Your Privacy !
The only search engine that does not record your IP address.

Your privacy is under attack !Every time you use a regular search engine, your search data are recorded.
Your search terms, the time of your visit, the links you choose, your IP address and your User ID cookies all get stored in a database.

The identity profiles that can be constructed from this cloud of information represent modern day gold for marketers.
But government officials, hackers and even criminals also have an interest in getting their hands on your personal search data.
And sooner or later they will…

I just switched from Dogpile to Ixquick for better privacy. So far, my searches are returned very quickly and with better results than Google or even Dogpile.

Switch today and take a stand against Google tyranny!
