I'm not loving the symbolism...

Comrade, all projects will be stamped with the ARRA logo. This stands for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as the fulfill all of the Democrats' dreams for the last 20 years Bill.

Okay, it is bad enough that most of the money in this "Recovery Bill" will do absolutely nothing to stimulate the economy, but wasting some of it to propagandize for the rest is downright sinister.

Also, look at the symbols they use: The stars. Okay, I don't have a problem with that part--evokes the flag, this is good. Then, some kind of plant thing. Maybe this represents ecology or farming. Last, the machine parts; leaving aside that the gears don't mesh, which may be the only truthful part of the whole emblem. It would appear to represent industry.

This reminds me of another set of symbols: The hammer represents industry, and the sickle represents farming. They should have just used that. It is more graceful and most importantly, we already know what it means.
