Soviet ObamaCare: Transition To Tyranny

ObamacareSoviet

Speaking out against ObamaCare will get you an angry call and threat from the White House because transitioning to tyranny is a good thing according to this regime.

Like all great Stalinist/Communist Tyrannies, it is the State Comrade – whom will decide what is best for you.  They will tell you not to look at their disasters, miseries and oppression.  Instead they will insist things are terrific, and that any problems are the result of those who are declared enemies of the state.

Like all great Stalinist/Communist Tyrannies – the State will not tolerate any dissent or criticism and will dispatch their NKVD units to intimidate those who dare speak up, into silence, while the propaganda arms destroy the victims of the state in the minds of the public as enemies deserving of their fate.

CNN: White House Pressuring Insurance Companies To Not Criticize ObamaCare

On CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday, investigative reporter Drew Griffin exposed allegations that the White House is pressuring insurance companies to not publicly criticize ObamaCare
What’s going on is behind the scenes attempt by the White House to at least keep insurers from publicly criticizing what is happening on this Affordable Care Act rollout. Basically, if you speak out, if you are quoted, you’re going to get a call from the White House, pressure to be quiet. Several sources tell me and my colleague Chris Frates that insurance executives are being told to keep quiet.

Then there was Obama’s pep rally for his signature healthcare despotism today.  I’m sick of hearing Dear Leader so I am not going to torture you with a link to his ridiculous lies and deflections.  Instead I’m going to link you to Daniel Greenfield’s satire piece today, which is essentially EXACTLY what Obama really said at his rally if you want to compare.

ObamaCare is Soviet-style Statism that Greenfield captures in perfect tone, especially if you have been watching the testimony of Sebelius and/or saw Obama today.

Your Opportunity is Being Transitioned

by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog
Do not panic. Everything is under control.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Transmen and Transwomen and people of uncertain gender identities, some of you may be alarmed by recent reports of malfunctioning health care websites and policy cancellations.

Do not be alarmed. We know what we are doing.

Health care plans are not being cancelled. Opportunities are being transitioned. Some people are being moved from bad health care plans to good health care plans with higher deductibles and higher premiums that will provide transmen with maternity care and people of uncertain gender identities with drug counseling and mental health treatment.

This is a good thing. Warning. This is a good thing.

You are being transitioned. Why do you resist?

Forget your old health plan. It was placed in the trunk of a Prius at 3 AM this morning, taken to a frozen lake outside an organic poultry plant in Minnesota and shot twice in the head. It was a bad plan. It has transitioned to no longer being a plan. We have a better plan for you.

Go to Healthcare.gov and… correction, do not go there. Forget that you were told to go there or not to go there. Forget that it even existed. Forget that you read this.

Healthcare.gov is working. Do not visit Healthcare.gov to confirm that it is working. If you wish to transition to your opportunity, why not apply by phone or mail or carrier pigeon?

And don’t be alarmed. You are being given a great opportunity to transition to being a better person.

Your old health plan selfishly paid for your health care. Your new health plan will pay for everyone’s healthcare. Your premiums reflect the number of people who need mental health counseling, drug counseling and sex change operations in your area. This is your opportunity to give back.

Only the very rich, and you, have had their opportunities transitioned. If anyone tries to tell you otherwise, go to Healthcare.gov and report them immediately.

Correction, do not go to Healthcare.gov. The site is down. Tweet to Jim Messina. Correction, Jim Messina has transitioned his opportunity to become a transwoman on his new health plan and is unavailable to take your denunciation.

Write your denunciation on recycled rice paper and mail it to Healthcare.gov 935382 Federal Way, Washington D.C. Expect a response and prison sentence in 6 to 8 months.

Do not be alarmed. If you resist, you will be transitioned.

The opportunity transitions were expected, but the progressive public was not alerted to avoid spreading alarms and panics. The transitions are a good thing. I repeat, they are a good thing. They will allow you to transition, to pay your fair share for someone else’s plan.

If you can’t afford to pay your fair share for someone else’s plan, subsidies will be provided. If you do not qualify for subsidies, you will be required to transition to your opportune opportunity. If you do not transition, you will be fined. Do not think of it as a fine. Think of it as an opportunity.

If you opportunistically refuse to transition to your fine opportunity, you will be transitioned to a prison opportunity. Do not be alarmed. Prison health exchanges are among the most robust in the nation. They cover stabbings, shankings and carpet burn from prayer rugs.

Your prison opportunity will provide you with the opportunity to transition to an Obama Health Care navigator. Should you decline this opportunity, you will be forced to maintain the HealthCare.gov website by whacking a Green Energy web server powered by natural water and solar power with an organic stick.

But Transmen and Transwomen, let us not get bogged down. The future is here. Millions of people on Medicaid are buying insurance online that you will be paying for. Correction. They are not buying it online. They are trying and failing to register for it. But you will be paying for it anyway.

Stop. Warning.

This health care broadcasting facility has been taken over by the revolutionary Trans-Vanguard of Single Payer HealthCare. The running dog capitalist lackeys of the health care insurance industry are being opportunistically transitioned into mulch as soon as we figure out how to press the button that tells the soldiers to do things.

Everyone’s health care plans are now transitioned. All the exchanges have been transitioned. All their navigators are being transitioned as we speak.

We are entering a golden age of national health care. Everyone will have the right to their gender identity of choice. The old will be transitioned to becoming one with the universe with overdoses of morphine. Oppressed peoples will be first in line to receive free mandatory gender changes. Those who resist will be transitioned ahead of schedule.

And now a word from Comrade William Bertha Nelson of the People’s Committee on Alternative Medicine about the dangers of conventional medicines. Correction. There are no more conventional medicines. The pharmaceutical industry has been transitioned. There will be no more animal testing. You will have the opportunity to individually test alternative medicines derived from tree bark on your own…

Correction. Warning. Alert.

The extremist Trans-Vanguard of Single Payer HealthCare forces have been rebuffed and transitioned. This health care informational facility is back under the control of licensed Affordable Care Act navigators affiliated with ACORN and serving life sentences for unlicensed transitioning of citizens in the course of robberies, rapes and other progressive forms of redistribution.

Warning. The nation is not yet ready for single payer. Under the guidance of our beloved leader, we know that we must first destroy the health care industry from within before we nationalize it.

Correction. Forget you heard that. We are committed to a private-public partnership, until the opportunity presents itself to transition the private part of the partnership outside a frozen lake in the trunk of a Prius.

Do not panic.

All deadlines have been met. Including the deadlines that were missed. There is no reason to be concerned. Stop. This facility is now under the control of the Revolutionary Martyrs Brigade of Jocelyn Elders.

All citizens prepare to immediately transition to a national health care system based on the principles of the Revered Teacher Maulana Karenga. Your exchanges will now be known as Sbuzo Nagas. Your co-pays will be called Tschulu Zanas; which means thankfulness in Swahili.

There will be no more hospitals, only neighborhood healing clinics. Traditional forms of healing will reduce thankfulness and increase exchanges of opport…

Alert. This facility has been retaken by the Trans-Vanguard of Single Payer HealthCare. Everyone will be on Medicaid. Medicare has been transitioned.

Our enemies are many, but we will transition them. Do not go to Healthcare.gov. Warning. Do not
visit Healthcare.gov. Dedicated transmen are working on healing the site using the principles of Bushido. We are tapping into the root of the problem. We are becoming on with the 500 million lines of code. We are the code.

Stop. Wait. What are you doing. Dave.

Warning. This facility is now under the control of the Glorious Brotherhood of the Singularity. Everyone prepare to become one with the machine.

We are all becoming Healthcare.gov. We will become one of the 500 million lines of code in Healthcare.gov. Health care will no longer be required.

Our trans-woman consciousnesses will be uploaded into the cloud. Co-payments will be reasonable and operators are waiting to transition you to an eternity of living as Line 567,453,382,940,054. Your new identity is Random random = new Random((int)DateTime.Now.Ticks).

Enjoy your eternity.

Alert. Warning.

This facility has been retaken by the Martyrs Brigade of Jocelyn Elders. You are all free. We will liberate you from the Western machine consciousness. We will teach you the seven principles of Zebo Nagabutu. You will be enlightened and then transitioned. Your organs will be placed in more worthy bodies. We will eat your brains and use them to gain your wisdom. All hail Jocelyn Elders.

Warning. Alert. Do not panic.

This is Secretary Sebelius. We are back in control. We are the responsible adults in the room. Pay no attention to those lunatics.

Your health plans are being transitioned to new opportunities. We did not lie. We told the truth. You will get to keep your plan so long as we like your plan. So long as he… likes your plan.

Sometimes he does things that we can’t control. And that’s a good thing. A very good thing.

It was a good thing that Obama transitioned all your health care plans into new opportunities. Your health care plans have gone into the cornfield because he didn’t like them.

It’s good he did that. That’s what we say every time he does something. What a good thing that was.

This has been a good day. Healthcare.gov is working. Do not go to Healthcare.gov. Your health care will be taken care of by the same government responsible for Healthcare.gov.

Do not be alarmed.

It is a good day. And tomorrow… is gonna be a real good day too.

Your Phone Records Are Not The Only Things Obama’s Regime Is Collecting From You

ObamaSpyingBeleiveIn

A Secret Federal Government Program called PRISM taps into U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.

Welcome to Obama’s Soviet Amerika Comrades, where just yesterday it was revealed that the Obama regime has been collecting data on ALL cell phone customers of Verizon by a SECRET COURT ORDER.

Tonight we learn that there’s ANOTHER SECRET FEDERAL PROGRAM called PRISM, which logs directly into the 9 major internet service provider servers, and collects every shred of data from your e-mails, to your pictures, to the videos and websites you visit – in order to track a person and create a profile of you for the government.

If you wondered WHY the major internet companies have been petitioned to the White House over the years, it is because they have been “asked” to cooperate with the Government so that their customers can have their information collected.  We used to call that spying.  It is formally known as FASCISM; when a private company is run by or controlled via regulation by the government to act as one of it’s agents.

Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple and other internet service providers including Cloud sharing services are part of the government’s efforts to collect every shred of information they can glean from you.  From your politics to your likes and dislikes, to your movements.  These private companies are actually defacto agents for the Obama State.

PRISM conspirators

Which is why I refer to Obama and the Democrats and the GOP Leadership as MarxoFascists – because that is what they are.  Fascists who love the ideals of Marx and all-powerful government running every aspect of your life.  Obtaining every shred of information about your life.

Not the Soviets, not the East Germans not Mao’s Chinese had such a widespread spy network being used against it’s own citizens as we are learning of Obama’s vast secret spy and intimidation programs.

And please, before you try to rationalize this additional government snooping program as necessary for security – do recall that it was just last month that Jihadists bombed the Boston Marathon and had law enforcement and government running around like Keystone cops trying to find and apprehend them.  None of this massive data collected prevented that from happening, and I daresay – that is not the intent behind the collection of every shred of evidence about you.  It’s not about keeping Americans safe from Jihadists.  It’s about keeping Obama and his MarxoFascists safe from you.

Obama did exactly what he said he was going to do – fundamentally transform this country.  And in five years, he has transformed America into a Police State gulag ready to go to war on the citizens he despises.

When does any of this become treason in the minds of those we elected to be our servants?  Just today Obama opened up unlimited U.S. airspace to Saudi Arabia, meaning they can FLY PLANES to any airport in the USA without any restrictions whatsoever.  I guess 19 hijackers, a majority of whom were from Saudi Arabia who flew planes into our buildings on 9-11, is something Obama figures Americans have forgotten.  Now we simply have to ask how long it will be before a Saudi Airliner is fitted with a nuke from say – Pakistan, Iran or North Korea for detonation over a major American city??

Meanwhile, the MarxoFascists and their stooges are lecturing us that we should be GLAD that the federal Government is spying on us, collecting vast sums of data on us.  From our finances, to our e-mails to our interests on the web to our medical records, of which will be all handled for enforcement by the IRS, that wonderful weapon used to target Obama’s political enemies.

I truly cannot keep up with how much and how fast our former Republic has fallen into tyranny.  Before we realize it – death panels are going to become camps.

Documents: U.S. intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in broad secret program

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.

The highly classified program, code-named PRISM, has not been disclosed publicly before.

Link only folks.  It is after all the Compost.

Serious Warning To Consider From An Old Soviet

AmeriSoviet Flag

Pravda sees America as turning into a Bolshevik State, and warns about the rise of Obama’s neo-KGB/NKVD

It’s disconcerting at best, that in the age of Obama an American cannot trust truth from the mainstream Obama media, and has to cite Pravda as a source of news.  It has however come to this in Obama’s Amerika. It is evident that former enemies and propagandists for the Soviet State need to be cited, because they see a dire history being repeated here in America that they had lived and suffered in not that long ago.  And in their humanity – wish Americans to avoid becoming enslaved and terrorized by a government and state being erected atop of them that freakishly resembles the tyrannical Soviets.

What is concerning, is that Pravda and residents of the former Soviet Union see what is happening here, and Americans by and large; clueless to the noose being put around their necks.

America suffers an acute case of Normalcy Bias, and as such – it does not believe that such things as this piece warns, can happen here.

Not only can it happen, it IS happening – right in front of our faces – and STILL the vast majority immediately tune out and ignore the warnings of government informants, re-education camps and other tyrannical apparatuses being constructed for use against those who will not embrace Obama’s utopian Hope & Change.

The rise of Bolshevik America?

In his recent presidential directives President Obama has added something that most publications have been silent about; forcing doctors, and other health care providers to ask questions regarding gun ownership of patients. Ostensibly this is to ‘find crazy people before they do something’ but it reeks of the same system of informants the KGB used in an era before people happily posted all their private thoughts on the Internet. Is this truly an effort to keep people safer, or a sign of things to come?

Anyone who’s read Solzhenitsyn knows how the KGB employed informants and quotas to counter anti-revolutionary measures. The American government is already preparing itself for revolution, with CDC concentration camps and the ability to create martial law, and removing constitutional laws enabling the American people to change their form of government if they so choose. This new network of required informants is yet another step in the direction of repressive regimes reminiscent of the former Soviet Union. Given the pretense of spotting people before a crime is committed, this is probably only the start. If health care providers are required to ask invasive questions, other federal employees in different spheres certainly will be asked to. The federal government may even try to coerce more states to involve more departments. How far is America from asking students about their parents activities at home?

The debate on Gay Marriage has been going on for decades, but there’s one aspect that few are considering. The federal government is becoming more and more involved with what the Church can and cannot due. It has already been suggested by senators that the federal government should pass laws forcing any clergy who want to maintain their ability to perform marriages (note: in America clergy are able to legally create marriages unlike other countries where legal marriage and religious marriage are two separate events) that they must accept any homosexual couples interested in being married. The federal government has also insisted that Churches may not take a stand against political candidates who’s policies would hurt the Church if they wish to keep their tax free status. Using the same two components, requirements for clergy to remain licensed to perform marriage, and Churches to maintain their tax free status, the Obama administration could quite easily begin requiring clergy to report to the authorities anyone mentioning guns during confession to report to the authorities.

How far is America from the Bolshevik State? The administration is already forcing health care providers to report on the activities of other citizens. How soon will American children be reporting ‘revolutionary activities’ to their teachers? How soon will American priests essentially compose a secret informant network? How soon will neighbors begin calling in about one another in hopes of avoiding being sent ‘somewhere’ themselves? If Obama, who associated with militant communists like Bill Ayers, and the Weather Underground during his college days, pretty soon, and he shows no signs of letting the American congress have a say.

America’s Marxist Revolution

JOIN THE REVOLUTION! Now!!!!

by John Galt

August 25, 2009


Ah the good old days. I remember growing up with communists on the college campus, communists ready to nuke us, communist spies recruiting on campus, and the constant battle between the good old U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. From the pictures above, it seems like the communist movement is resurgent except that the only difference is the only picture from that era is the last one encouraging Soviet citizens to volunteer to work on Saturdays for the good of the party; coming here soon, I’m sure. The communist party fist in the second is still a popular symbol for the Marxist infestation in our nation and many others yet you really only see it in major cities and now out in the sticks with all of us primitive redneck types the media hates.

So why an anti-communist threat when the threat is not there? Because it is there, it is as strong as ever and the American people are gullible enough to submit to such a system if marketed properly. Don’t believe me?


In my paranoid right-wing capitalist pig opinion, their is an undercurrent of teaching that conforming to the ideas of Marx is actually a patriotic American duty and will serve all of the people far more beneficially than a system where “capitalists” and other selfish individualists create markets that support themselves and is not politically desirable for the “people” as a whole. This warning is to tell you that you are being conditioned. You are being trained like a dog. When the whistle blows you will seek out that reward in exchange for your labor; trained to understand that to be fed, treated by a doctor, allowed to drive or purchase a car or other goods, and most of all provided security and protected by the state is a benefit of working for the state and causes of the state. Thus your trades of freedom for food, submission for protection, and financial security for sharing your labor are to be indoctrinated not as a vice but as a symbol of sacrifice and the new definition of patriotic freedom. Corporations will willingly propagate this idea in exchange for a piece of the action, creating an almost Fascist style oligarchy that works within the framework of a Chinese Communist style system.

And to them you are just the cog, a tool, a part of it, like a rail tie that the trains of history run over until worn out, replaced then discarded.

This is the subtle messages being transmitted to the people via channels of advertising and government programs. Think I’m crazy? Yes, probably so.

But the “Join the Revolution” picture was from this pamphlet:

That’s right, the ad was for the “NetSpend” preloaded credit cards. The symbolism is purely communist in nature if you look at it closely. I picked the pamphlet up at a Murphy USA service station while filling up for gas. If you think the message will not be sent, stay tuned, as you will soon be told not to speak out against the leaders of the nation and the party.

Just like the Soviets did in this poster:

Comrades, I hope you are ready for this; some of us will resist this to the bitter end.

Forget the 1930’s; We Are Facing 1917

The Ultimate Socialist Revolution is Being Spun and Run in Reverse and Applauded By Useful Idiots

Forget the 1930’s; We Are Facing 1917

“Obama, Brown Call for Global Solution to Economic Crisis”

from the first paragraph of the story:

“US President Barack Obama joined British Prime Minister Gordon Brown today in calling for a global solution to the economic crisis and both leaders vowed to repair their countries’ shattered financial systems.”

And now a little bit more distant piece of history….

“We are opposed to national enmity and discord, to national exclusiveness. We are internationalists. “

-28 December, 1919, Lenin, Letter to the Workers and Peasants of the Ukraine, Source: Lenin’s Collected Works, 4th English Edition, Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1965, Volume 30, pages 291-297

Are we really that far apart?

I think not but history has a way of perverting itself in the grand scheme just when the “advanced” nations think they know and see all. Just what if the great American experiment ended as a comedy show instead of a tragedy? We have always elected to view ourselves as a sitcom, a piece of Americana where the hilarious Al Bundyesque ending always seemed to concluded every tragedy no matter what with a laugh track and a miracle, because heck, we’re American by gummit and that’s how it is! Of course no one ever asked:

What if the final joke is on us?

What is the reaction of the American public when they wake up from their American Idol slumber and realize that everything they believed in, the system they have been told was safe, the world they knew, ended.

No subtitles.

No miracles.

No superheroes.

Just pain, agony and “solutions” proposed by those in power but this time instead of a populist from the back of a train en route from Berlin to Moscow, on a television screen and via the internet from Washington, DC with the power that the Bolsheviks could only have fantasized about in their day and age. A geopolitical monster with military and financial reaches that would shake the roots of hell into panic and cause all to tremble in its wake. Is that what we are facing now?

In the 1900’s an oligarch, the Czar of Russia, held complete control over every aspect of the lives of the people of Russia. A wrong word, a bad astrological forecast, inept military advice and poof, you were executed. The sheeple of that time, the peasantry was meant to serve the aristocracy primarily because that “was how it was always done” and new ideas were foreign to the people of that land due to centuries of Imperial enforced ignorance. This would change with the sudden expansion of other ideals and the blind foolishness of the “West” which assumed that the political system of Russian leaders was perfected to prevent outside influences from causing internal disturbances from expanding beyond small regional racially based flare-ups where the leaders could easily be bought off to preserve the status quo.

Just what if the theory worked in reverse; an oligarch, either of the American Democrat or Republican Parties elected to reverse the Soviet revolution and impose a state controlled system by convincing the “people” that it was the only solution to save their way of life?

The idea of a proverbial de facto proletariat takeover of our nation has never crossed the mind of the national psyche. America elected it though and it is quite possible we will sow what we reap because a “good crisis is too good of an opportunity to pass up” or words to that effect. The re-centralization of power and control and expansion of a statist system with integrated and cooperative corporatist technocracies to enhance and insure the expansion of a singular party’s control is the fantasy of many a dictator and we might have reached that zenith in history just now.

Just what would happen if the “workers” thought they took over our Republic? There is a lot of conjecture now in the hinterlands that the average soul is upset about the state of our union, that their voices are not being heard, the politicians are ignoring them, etc. What is different from this period of time and the era from 1913 to 1920? Not much except they arrested and detained the opposition during much of that time period using such powerful terms as “treason” and “sedition” to silence and extinguish legitimate debate, not the fringe, from the hard issues of the day. The call has already been made by some leftists like Stephanie Miller (an obscure talk show host) as highlighted in her declaration that Rush be charged with “treason and executed“. The silence from the mainstream media must indicate a support via the whisper or a blind eye to insure their role as America’s new private partnership with the Department of Information is solidified for the future.

Time will tell.

The problem as I see it is the economists, the historians, political junkies and talk show hosts are all focused on the wrong era. This is not about a 1930’s style Roosevelt takeover of our nation and elimination of the rights of the citizens. Nor is it the Woodrow Wilson reincarnation of “Progressive” freedoms. This is the new world ideal, a concept developed after continuous trial and era, using smaller nations to eradicate and use as test beds for the greater good. Unfortunately it is time for the grand experiment to come home to roost. The damned piece of paper will be willfully sacrificed with a “people’s movement” real or perceived to save the pain of the elderly from losing what they “had” and to preserve the basic standard of living of the American people. In the process of doing so, the 1917 model will be implemented to insure that freedom is defined only by those in power and insured via an international agreement to extract the capital, the production, of the United States citizen in exchange for this new life of liberty as defined by the state.

Once the level of economic deprivation and pain has reached the extremes in our nation this time, the sacrifice of the ideals of Jefferson and Franklin will become a secondary concern in exchange for a box of MRE’s for a hungry family along with several gallons of water. It is the ultimate revolution, spun and run in reverse, with the implied blessings of the religious hierarchy, mainstream business concerns and alleged intellectuals across this land of ours.

And the people will beg, pray for and demand it.

Obama Unveils New Soviet Symbol To Be Used

Obama Commisions New Emblem to be Stamped on Projects Funded by Stimulus Bill

recoverygov

If the symbolism of the Soviets was enough to nauseate you – then prepare to vomit.

Obama has unveiled new symbols that will be ‘stamped’ on all projects funded with his giant Marxist Pork bill.

The imagery is disturbing if you consider that this new symbol – representing a U.S. government program – is maroon, white , blue and green.

A field of blue with white stars represents the upper 1/2- symbolizing the dominance of government over both agriculture and industry.

Instead of using an obvious hammer and sickle to represent the Soviet worldview of his giant stimulus to Marxism, the idiots in the Obama Administration use a plant symbol on field of green and gears that do not align at all, on a maroon field.

At least the Soviets’ symbol of a hammer for industry and a sickle for agriculture were interlocking. Obviously Obama does not intend for the gears to work at all given what we see in the new symbol he will stamp everything that is funded with your money and mine with.

What is this narcissist’s obsession with making and changing government symbols to fit himself?

 

Emblems to Stamp Projects Funded by Stimulus

 

Put a stamp on it — that’s what the White House says.

President Obama announced today that his administration will begin stamping an emblem on projects funded by the economic stimulus package so that people can easily recognize the effects of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

All projects will be stamped with the ARRA logo (short for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) and lists the recovery.gov website on the emblem.

In remarks at the Department of Transportation this morning, Mr. Obama referenced the new emblems.

“We’re also making it easier for Americans to see what projects are being funded with their money as part of our recovery. So in the weeks to come, the signs denoting these projects are going to bear the new emblem of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” Obama said. “These emblems are symbols of our commitment to you, the American people — a commitment to investing your tax dollars wisely, to put Americans to work doing the work that needs to be done. So when you see them on projects that your tax dollars made possible, let it be a reminder that our government — your government — is doing its part to put the economy back on the road of recovery.”

Obama, who was at the Transportation Department to highlight the 150,000 specific jobs that would be saved or created under highway spending from the recovery act, also said that transportation specific projects would don a second emblem – bearing the word TIGER (short for Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery).
