The administration of Barack Obama, heavily supported by his minions in Congress, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid,are preparing to perpetrate the greatest tax sleight of hand ever upon American taxpayers. Unlike the tax cheats that Obama has selected for cabinet posts, their actions will be one of commission as opposed to omission as per the example of Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geitner.

The Obama administration has been very forthcoming about their desire to engage in class war in America by targeting the top 5% of income earners for additional income tax while “reducing” the tax burden of 95% of Americans. It is difficult for me to accept, that no matter how far to the left an individual’s political pendulum swings, that educated Americans believe they will receive a tax cut from the progressive fascists currently governing our country while they are enacting into law budget appropriations that will bankrupt the nation.

As the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES) slithers through the house under the guidance of Henry Waxman the progressive Democrat, who Chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the House, under the explicit direction of the Madam Speaker, with selective recall, Nancy Pelosi, is committed to a bill designed to provide a national health care bill to a President who is anxious to sign it into law, no matter the real cost to American taxpayers.

Among the proposals being considered to fund health care reform will be taxing the health care benefits currently enjoyed by millions of Americans as a benefit from their employer. Members of the House and Senate, have placed the prospect on the table of taxing these benefits at the very least among “high” income earners. In addition a plethora of  additional vice and health taxes may be imposed on the usual suspects of alcohol and tobacco, but also on soft drinks and other high sugar content products. A sweet tax is on its way. It will provide the government another opportunity to impose its will on a public who, per our government, are unwilling to make healthy disciplined choices as to what they deem to consume.

Unlike the taxes imposed upon the colonies by a British monarch, these taxes will be imposed upon us by our representatives to satisfy a progressive fascist agenda that is committed to transforming America into a Eurotopian socialist state that assumes a place of equality in the world as a nation that is compliant to the wishes of the world’s competitive economies. We as good citizen’s are expected to roll over and accept the judgement of “our” elected representatives as they enact legislation and policies that are in the best interest of our people.

America, long the safe harbor of entrepreneurial endeavor and individual freedoms is in peril at this time, on this day, due to the strengthening  grip of progressivism around our nation’s throat. We are being strangled by those who though they may be of good intent are enacting ill will upon our nation. They suffer from a progressive ignorance and fail to understand the most basic of economic principles and the importance of assuring the rights and liberties of individualism. They are a product of group think that have been well honed by our educational institutions and a compliant media only too willing to promote the progressive agenda.

Oppressive taxation will not yield the societal benefit required to sustain our standard of life, but rather will deter incentive, cause capital to flee and impose further hardship upon those unable to compete in a global market. Barack Obama is correct when he states that we are at a crossroads in our nation’s development. The progressive road that Barack Obama has chosen for us is the easy road to travel upon. It is the most popular road.  It is the shiny new green road. It is the road for which we have sacrificed our fundamental principles and mortgaged our future. However, if we continue on the progressive path that we are on, in the coming years we will recall the words of the poet Robert Burns and wish we had taken the road less traveled.

Ceo4aday the blog which offers a perspective from the corner office and provides  insightful commentary on political, economic and  business issues that effect our entrepreneurial culture and free enterprise system, is pleased to announce that we have exceeded 200,ooo views since our launch in December 2008.

We have been writing extensively about the Obama administration and the President’s intent to transform America from a global beacon of free enterprise and entrepreneurism to a Eurotopian socialist nation that is committed to a progressive agenda which will weaken our traditional economic institutions and promote the expansion of  government incursion into American society.

We believe that the arrogance of this President compounded with his lack of relevant experience is leading America along a transformational path which will result in an America where class war is the rule of the day as his progressive agenda can only be funded by extracting a greater toll through the oppressive taxation of those who already fund a disproportionate percentage of the nation’s tax burden.

We believe that an unfettered free enterprise system is an integral component of the promise of America as conceived by the founding fathers and is essential to assuring the American way of life. Barack Obama does not have an appreciation for our free enterprise system. Obama believes that corporations and entrepreneurs should be taxed at the highest rate the market will bear to support an agenda in which individual rights and liberties are secondary to the needs of an ever burgeoning government bureaucracy. 

We are increasingly concerned about the alliance between the progressive movement and the labor unions that have shaped the agenda for both the Democrat Party and the Obama administration. We believe the strong arm tactics utilized by the administration to bolster the position of the UAW are criminal and merit investigation by an independent council to determine if indeed the administration is providing pay back for the enthusiastic support by the unions during the 2008 Presidential campaign.

We appreciate the support of all our readers and will continue to provide topical commentary on the aforementioned as well as other items of interest from our perspective.

Barack Obama states in an article in the New York Times Magazine today that financial profits in the corporate sector which have been a large contributor to overall corporate profitability in America will have to be less in the years ahead. He also indicated that if WalMart were paying employees $25 per hour then the loss of jobs in the manufacturing sector would be less of an issue with American workers.

Obama’s stong anti capitalist comments should ripple through the markets tomorrow. Obama may deny that he is a socialist, or a progressive fascist however, his remarks in the  Times article prove otherwise. Obama believes in a planned economy that would shift both capital and human resources to sectors that the government would determine were in need of resources as opposed to allowing market forces to dictate the allocation of resources. He has cloaked the necessity of an economic transformation around the failed policies of his predecessor and a stupurous nation has failed to challenge his assumptions.

The President will not be challenged by a euphoric democratic leadership in Congress as he traverses the path toward a socialist economy. Nancy Pelosi appears to be star struck when she is asked to comment on any thing Obama related and Harry Reid continues to follow Pelosi’s lead. How quickly they have forgotten that this President is the former inexperienced junior senator from Illinois.

Obama may be the most disciplined or certainly the most practiced politician we have seen in our lifetime to occupy the oval office. He will not deliver even the shortest address without the use of a teleprompter and his press conferences are orchestrated in such a manner as to limit any debate with the press. His is the politic of the consummate progressive that believes that government should fulfill the role of  the solutions provider for the masses no matter what the issue. When Obama states that corporations may have to be less profitable for a more profitable American experience he is demonstrating his lack of interest in a free market economy and the unbridled entrepreneurism that was the rock upon which this nation was founded.

The following remarks are attributed to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd of Australia and represent what we believe are the feelings of millions of citizens of western nations who have become disenfranchised by the tyranny of political correctness. These comments have been distributed widely across the Internet but we believe they are courageous comments by a leader that exemplifies a common sense approach to the political ineptness that has enveloped the western world and led to the weakening of our culture and the erosion of our social and economic institutions.
We are particularly impressed by Prime Minister Rudd’s remarks, given the weakness of our current political leadership in the United State of America. We applaud the Australian Prime Minister for his remarks and hope that they encourage others to step up and stand out for what they believe. “Fight For The Right”—Ceo4aday
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Kevin angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques.

Quote:’IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom”We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!”Most Australians believe in God.

This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools.

If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.”We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.

”This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,’THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.”If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE.

We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

In an obvious attempt to ingratiate himself with the Islamic nations of the world, President Barack Obama has declared that the United States is not a Christian nation. In an address in Turkey he stated that America is a nation of citizens with ideals and values. Evidently the fact that America was formed and built on Judeo Christian principles and values slipped the President’s mind or perhaps it was mistakenly left off the teleprompter.

President Obama has embarked on a mission to transform the perception of  America’s relationships in the Islamic community of nations. His bow to the Saudi King and his address in Turkey where he consciously chose to ignore America’s religious roots are further evidence of his global progressive agenda to drive a stake into what has been the very heart and soul of this nation.

It should come as no surprise to us that a president, that is willing to lie about a bow to an Islamic King, would be just as inclined to toss away, America’s religious heritage as easily as he would our free enterprise system and our nuclear arsenal. This President, a mere eighty days into the Office of the Presidency, has demonstrated a willingness to portray a weakened secular America for the world to digest. An America that will hit the reset button and rewrite our history. An America that our President would rather apologise for than be proud of.

In America, we tolerate the practice and beliefs of all religions however, there is no question that we are predominantly a Christian nation whether, Barack Obama chooses to accept that or not.  America is well known through out the world for its religious tolerance and the President should be touting our Judeo Christian ethic and our tolerance to the world rather than diminishing it to gain praise from Islamic nations many of which have only our worst interests at heart.

Barack Obama, who now appears to have been separated at birth from former President Jimmy Carter, bowed to the Saudi King upon meeting him at the G-20 meetings last week in London. The bow, which may have been quickly forgotten and written of as poor judgement on the part of the President, is gaining more attention as the White House elects to dispute that fact that the President bowed to the Saudi King.

The bow, which was clearly identified on video newsreels across the world, was a bow and implied deference to the Saudi Royal. The White House has stated that the President was simply shaking the hand of a shorter man. Rather than admit to the error in judgement which the President is no doubt now embarrassed by, the White House has elected to fabricate a cover up.

If the Obama administration will choose to support such a blatant lie, where there is clear proof to the contrary, we can only be in awe of their arrogance and wonder at what point the media will begin to hold them accountable.

Nancy Pelosi, the current Speaker of the House, recently stated during an interview that Barack Obama, is a great President. We believe that individual acts of greatness may be accomplished in mere moments but greatness,  is measured over time and is a function of the cumulative acts of an individual. To suggest that Barack Obama is a great President less than three months into his Presidency diminishes the accomplishments of Obama’s predecessors.

Their have been numerous attempts to quantify or rank the Presidents from our greatest President to our least effective. Generally, at the top of the list are Washington, Lincon, and Franklin Roosevelt. Most historians and political scholars consider them great Presidents. These were men whose mettle was tested during the nations most difficult periods and were able to leave a stronger united nation in their wake.

Barack Obama is new to the office of the Presidency and to date has distinguished himself as a great campaigner, a great user of teleprompters, a great believer in the redistribution of wealth and a great apologist as evidenced by his recent European tour. Nancy Pelosi who may distinguish herself as the most liberal Speaker of the House to ever serve in that office is clearly a great fan of President Obama.

We are enduring a transformative period in our national politic, where a President with broad support from a liberal media and a leftist Congress is transforming the institutions that have been the foundation of this nation that had served an America built by a free enterprise  system.

The expansive government that Barack Obama is promoting may be deemed the greatest expansion of the federal government since the New Deal and the Second World War. The progressive agenda of the Obama administration is preparing America to assume a lesser role in the world as a super power and position America as an extension of the secular progressive policies embraced by the European Union.

Perhaps, to Nancy Pelosi, weakening America’s role in the world by impugning  free enterprise, apologising for America’s previous strength, weakening our defense and promoting the United Nations are the acts of a great President.

A feature article in Village Voice ,How Rightbloggers Made “Fascist” The New “Socialist”, attempts to discredit conservative bloggers and commentators by presenting their views as extreme. The article insinuates that conservative bloggers have been quick to label Barack Obama a fascist. The article was also captioned as Rightbloggers vs. ObamaHitler! You may link to the article at www.villagevoice.com.

An excerpt from a blog written by Ceo4adayon progressive fascism is included in the article. This particular blog was published on April 3, and is titled, Obama’s New America, Green, Sustainable, Just : A Collectivist’s Dream.

 At no time have we considered Barack Obama to be Hitler.I’m not certain Hitler ever used a teleprompter. What I am sugesting is that Barack Obama has chosen to govern to the far left of center. That the policies he has embraced and the rhetoric he has espoused are consistent with the agenda of the progressive fascist movement.A movement that promotes the reset of American values and principles, class war, restricts free enterprise, promotes homogeneity and restricts individualism.

Obama will transform America through progressive fascism to a nation that can some day take its place in the European Union. This is not the America that we believe Americans want. Ceo4aday believes in a free enterprise system that is subject to free market fluctuation without the restrictive covenants of the progressive engineering that the federal government has imposed upon us.

The article in the Village Voice would have the public believe that those bloggers willing to step up and write about the progressive agenda of Barack Obama are right wing whackos. Ceo4aday maintains a centrist philosophy on social issues and is passionate about the free enterprise system and supporting entrepreneurship in America. We are conservative in our nature with respect to the preservation of those rights that the Founding Fathers deemed “inalienable”.  We believe that Barack Obama through his conciliatory nature has weakened America. We believe that Barack Obama through lack of experience in or exposure to free enterprise and capitalism has only a leftist notion of what capitalism is and how it has contributed to the evolution of America.

The Village Voice will make light of conservative rhetoric and lambast our ideas and perceptions but it is our willingness to voice what may be deemed unpopular today that will serve to protect our rights tomorrow. We on the right will continue to object to the tyranny of the left.

The Obama’s will return from their tour of Europe as international superstars. Political celebutant’s who have conquered Europe amid the adulation of the British , French, Germans, Czechs and the remainder of the continent that were inundated by the media coverage of America’s new royal couple. The Obama’s represent a new America to the European nations.

They represent an America that is willing to concede that the Bush doctrine was misplaced, ineffective and detrimental to maintaining progressive diplomatic relations between America and its European allies. Progressive diplomatic relations that would yield an America better aligned with Europe with respect to climate change, shared economies and social engineering. An America that in fact would be kinder, gentler and less competitive.

America has a unique relationship with its older European brethren. There is a link of origin that for many Americans transcends what ever issues may divide us. There is also within America an underlying and long held desire for the approval of Europe as the learned more sophisticated elder and America has long been the brash upstart wanting to run faster and harder toward its individual objectives.

Americans are fascinated by European institutions and are linked  by wars fought to preserve democratic freedoms and principles and by a cultural thread of shared values and beliefs that has been established over centuries. However, America has long taken a different path toward governance and resolution of social issues than the European politic. In this nation, we have embraced the belief that the cumulative efforts of  the individual, who is exercising his or her inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, results in a greater benefit to the nation as a whole as opposed to European Social Welfare which promotes the welfare of the nation to the exclusion of individual pursuits.

We should not be surprised at his President’s reception in Europe. Obama is a consummate campaigner. His European tour has been an extension of campaign that is unlikely to end while Obama is in office. He has offered the promise of a new America to Europe. An America which will be more closely aligned with Europe as the Obama administration works diligently with Congress to realign the social and economic infrastructure as he promotes a progressive agenda which mortgages the unique spirit of America in order to be better perceived by nations where mediocrity has become  the acceptable standard of performance.

John Galt, the quintessential symbol of individualism and the hero of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is making a come back as a result of the socialist egalitarian policies of Barack Obama and the oppressive bureaucracy that Obama’s expansive government is certain to portend. Galt, a fictional character  represents the “men of the mind” that elect to strike, rather than provide their goods and services or intellectual contributions  to a society or government that fails to appreciate their contribution and burdens them with restrictive bureaucratic intrusiveness.

The novel which was published in 1957 and celebrated individual rights and the market economy would seem to be an appropriate read for the generation of progressive fascists that are now populating many western governments and have assumed power in the United States.

 Barack Obama has been touring Europe touting the changes in America. His diplomatic outreach to Europe, includes the following statement “In America, There is a failure to Appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world”.  Perhaps President Obama should reflect on America’s leadership in the world.

America is an arrogant nation. Its arrogance has been earned over time, by the might of its military, as it prevented the collapse of Europe through world wars one and two and orchestrated the collapse of the Soviet Union to allow freedom and democracy to develop inside the former iron curtain that divided west from east. Its’ arrogance has been further earned by the quality and depth of its entrepreneurs that created the most dynamic economy in the history of the world.

America is arrogant and as a nation should hold its head high as it interacts with the world as opposed to being a nation of apologists. America should not be ashamed for preventing further terrorist attacks on its soil since September 11, 2001. Rather it should be proud of its sucess and embrace the methods that have preserved its security.

The American spirit is best when it is allowed to develop alnd prosper under the blue skies and bright suns of a leadership that recognizes the seminal role that America has played in creating an entrepreneurial, free enterprise culture that values the rights of individuals and promotes individual prosperity.The  government of Barack Obama seeks to restrict those rights, tax away incentives and implement collectivist solutions to social and economic issues.

Obama’s message to Europe is correct. America is changing. John Galt is hiding again.
