Thomas Loc Dot GovSubmitted by JKap on Fri, 05/16/2008 - 16:53
I generally do not make posts such as these, but I felt that it might encourage some provocative conversation and critical thinking here at the Daily Paul, which I think is always a good thing in the pursuit and practice of liberty (contrary to the opinions of many disinfo trolls).
My question is this: The federal government website, thomas.loc.gov, which, as I understand it, catalogs or indexes all items in the Congressional record (speeches, legislation, etc.) for accessibility on the internet--among other websites, such as http://www.govtrack.us/--unlike the vast majority of other websites in my experience (such as, say, Digg or the Daily Paul), is not indexed on search engines such as Google. Can someone comment on why this is so and if there is a legitimate reason that one cannot use google to search the Congressional record?
I would think that it would be highly beneficial to access all items in the Congressional record through a widely popular search engine such as Google. Thanks.
