The original google post about this, which makes it clear that mobile friendly sites get a higher ranking when you search on mobile devices . This change will affect mobile searches. Mobile. Not desktop. So if you're searching from a mobile device then results that are more mobile friendly will be ranked higher, on the assumption that people searching from mobile devices would prefer mobile content.

Diane Feinstein believes that every American who isn't a cop or politician is a violent criminal who hasn't been caught yet, and thus believes that only cops and politicians such as herself should own firearms... I don't see any conservatives standing up to defend her...

I think what you really meant to say there was "why do conservatives always defend the rights of people I decide not to like?" The answer to which being, they don't, but that's the perception you choose to have based on your particular, subjective view of reality.

If you had your career destroyed by groupthink I bet you'd hold a different opinion on the matter.
