The White House Hijacks The EMS "Star of "Life" To Promote Obama Care

Another example of amateurs at work. Yesterday the Obama administration posted this graphic via twitter. The graphic incorporates the internationally recognized "Star of Life" symbol at the top and in a repeating watermark.

The Star of Life symbol is used by EMS Crews worldwide and is not the symbol of the White House or healthcare insurance. 
It is doubtful that White House staff even knows what the "Star of Life" represents.

From: Wikipedia:
The six branches of the star are symbols of the six main tasks executed by rescuers all through the emergency chain:
  1. Detection: The first rescuers on the scene, usually untrained civilians or those involved in the incident, observe the scene, understand the problem, identify the dangers to themselves and the others, and take appropriate measures to ensure their safety on the scene (environmental, electricity, chemicals, radiation, etc.).
  2. Reporting: The call for professional help is made and dispatch is connected with the victims, providing emergency medical dispatch.
  3. Response: The first rescuers provide first aid and immediate care to the extent of their capabilities.
  4. On scene care: The EMS personnel arrive and provide immediate care to the extent of their capabilities on-scene.
  5. Care in Transit: The EMS personnel proceed to transfer the patient to a hospital via an ambulance or helicopter for specialized care. They provide medical care during the transportation.
  6. Transfer to Definitive care: Appropriate specialized care is provided at the hospital.

So says the racist jackbutt Cedar Posts. Why aren't you scraping a hull?

Cedar is correct the Star of Life is worn by EMT's around the world. It has no business as part of the sales/propaganda of Obama Care.

That said the trademark protection ran out in 1997 so I guess Obama can sell condoms with it if he wants to.

Ha Cedar give it a rest, no one cares what Obama does. Had it been Chris Christie there would be an FBI investigation already.
