High school senior comes out as LGBT while accepting award

There are 85 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Jan 24, 2013, titled High school senior comes out as LGBT while accepting award. In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

Coming out as LGBT is rarely easy, which makes

Jacob Rudolph's story all the more impressive. When the high school student in Parsippany, N.J., came out, he did so in front of the entire school. His classmates responded with a standing ovation.

During the presentation of senior class awards, Rudolph was given the Class Actor award, an irony not lost on him. "Sure I've been in a few plays and musicals, but more importantly, I've been acting every single day of my life," Rudolph said. "You see, I've been acting as someone I'm not."

Footage of Rodolph's speech and its positive reception was uploaded to the Web by his father, who noted on the video that it "took more guts to do than anything I've ever attempted in my life."

It was a joke.

I remember when you guys got your asses kicked in the Falklands War.

And it mattered not one iota. He's the most popular living former president we have. Well, that's not counting the Libertarian. Whoops, there's never been one and won't be in our lifetime. No. surprise, you always vote for the losers, you fit right in.

Although I must say I believed then, and I still believe now, that the HMS Conquerer NEVER should have sank the ARA General Belgrano. There was no need for that tragedy.

It was NOT a pointless conflict because President Galtieri (sp ?) invaded teh sovereign territory of Great Britain for purely selfish domestic political considertaions.

Great Britain's response was entirely justified.

In addition President Reagan gave covert intelligence assistance to the Brits in the form of NSA interceptions of Argentine military and political communications, as well as other covert intelligence aid.

And I still don't believe that teh ARA General Belgrano (Ex-USS Phoenix, CL-46) should have been sunk. I think that was totally unnecessary.

I want The Obamaniac impeached !

ESPECIALLY in light of the fact that the federal D.C. court just ruled that he has BLATANTLY and GLEEFULLY violated the U.S. Constitution by making federal appointments WITHOUT the "advice and consent" of the U.S. Senate, as the U.S. CONSTITUTION REQUIRES !!!

I thought this bozo was supposed to KNOW what the U.S. Constitution says ?! And since The Obamaniac WAS a U.S. Senator, you know damn well that he would be screaming bloody murder if a POTUS did this while HE was a U.S. Senator.

IMPEACH THIS BUM !

NEXT !

Somebody has misinformed you.

Interim appointments are specifically allowed when the Congress is not in session, and such appointments stand until the end of the next session.

There are so many vacancies in the Federal roster, especially on the Federal Bench, that I'm surprised that the President didn't do it sooner.

I was NOT "misinformed". I saw the story on tv on CNN and read the story on the CNN website, the AP website, and other news sites. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has ruled UNANIMOUSLY that The Obamaniac has flagrantly, deliberately, gleefully, and WILLFULLY, violated thw U.S. Constitution by making appointments WITHOUT the "advice and consent" of the U.S. Senate. Read the story here:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/25/co...

If a POTUS did this while The Obamanaic was a U.S. Senator hw would be screaming bloody murder !

It is CLEAR that The Obamaniac has NO understanding of, nor respect for, the U.S. Constitution. The CONGRESS rules ! NOT The Obamaniac !

IMPEACH THIS BUM !

The Senate was not offically in recess. That is EXACTLY WHY The Obamaniac did NOT have the right to make these appointments without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. Since he WAS a U.S. Senator, should he KNOW THIS ?! Or since he obviously DOES KNOW THIS, isn't it obvious that he has NO REGARD for the U.S. Constitution taht he SWORE to uphold ?!

One wonders why the Democratic Senate (or his own staff) would setup the President this way.
