Good Morning Peppy,
Why do racists object to being called what they are?
Probably because it's not true except only in your distorted ideologic mind.

How do you feel about Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Alan West, Ron Chritie, Eldridge Cleaver, Artur Davis, Frederick Douglas, Alfreda King and Mia Love - just to name a few?

Please say you agree with their political ideology because they're black. I dare ya'.

A large portion liberals are academics, union employees or government workers. Most are clueless when it comes to business issues. They view business leaders as cruel tyrants that should be operating primarily to serve the good of society. Makes for a good fairy tale but nothing more.
Thing is, most business leaders DO serve the good of society by providing jobs and a service.

Where am I wrong?

Obama DOI to people struggling with high cost of gas- Drop dead:

"President Obama is campaigning as a champion of the oil and gas boom he's had nothing to do with, and even as his regulators try to stifle it. The latest example is the Interior Department's little-noticed August decision to close off from drilling nearly half of the 23.5 million acre National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska.

The area is called the National Petroleum Reserve because in 1976 Congress designated it as a strategic oil and natural gas stockpile to meet the "energy needs of the nation." Alaska favors exploration in nearly the entire reserve. The feds had been reviewing four potential development plans, and the state of Alaska had strongly objected to the most restrictive of the four. Sure enough, that was the plan Interior chose."

Evidently you can't recognize a racial slur.

I can agree or disagree with any of those people without using a slur.

All true Christians believe this.
Most Christians actually believe "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" since Jesus was more concerned how you view your treasure than being prosperous - and whether your treasure here on earth was more important than your treasure in heaven.

Prosperity wasn't a sin during Jesus' day and it's not a sin now. Greed, envy and hoarding, however, was and still is.

Tom Brokaw Blames Obama For Deficit
October 16, 2012 by Bryan Nash
UPI FILE
While appearing on “Meet the Press,” Tom Brokaw weighed in on the problem of the national deficit. The retired news anchor said that it has only gotten worse under President Barack Obama’s watch.
The Obama campaign has repeatedly harped on the unclear economic plan of Mitt Romney. Brokaw said that Romney should turn the tables and ask the President to describe in specific detail what he plans to do to reverse the problem he has caused.
“I do think that the governor is right, and we’ll expect to hear Governor Romney go after President Obama this time about ‘I want more details about your plan. You keep harping on me. I haven’t heard the details in your plan as well.’”
He went on to insinuate that the President needs to take responsibility.
Referring to debates that Obama was involved in before he was President, Brokaw commented,“President Obama was saying,‘Look we’ve got a deficit of a half of a trillion dollars. I’m gonna get that under control.’ Well this week, that deficit is 1.1 trillion dollars and it happened on his watch.”
Tom Brokaw is no partisan hack. He truly calls it as he sees it and always has.

Romney maintains that he won't make cuts to social security ($778 billion) or defense spending ($902 billion) and will continue to pay the interest on the national debt to avoid default ($225 billion). Just these three line items would cost $1.9 trillion, leaving just $564 billion left over for everything else. Health spending, Medicare and Medicaid, cost $864 billion this year, so Romney's proposed voucher system, which would replace President Obama's health care plan, would need to achieve $300 billion in annual savings for the budget to balance -- three times the amount expected.

But let's assume he solves the healthcare problems and is able to cut spending and maintain care (again a very generous assumption), there would still be nothing left over to pay for anything else. Not only would this entail unrealistic cuts in health care spending it also would require wiping out total federal support for education ($153 billion); all social welfare projects - including unemployment benefits ($452 billion), civil protection - including federal grants for local police & firefighters ($62 billion), all government agencies and regulators ($33.6 billion), transportation like interstate highway maintenance ($102 billion), and every other government program you can think of from stimulus funds to research grants ($199 billion). In this case, much of the $219 billion in saving the Romney campaign identified would ultimately not be necessary here because the government would essentially no longer exist.

President Obama promised to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term in office – he missed his target by about $700 billion. While voters loyal to the President will probably excuse him for not shrinking the budget gap, Romney's core constituency won't be as forgiving. Unless the Romney campaign presents a clear vision of its plans, then many of those fiscally conservative Republicans might not bother showing up at the polls
