OK, besides her ruining everybody else's prom... I don't care about this issue. I think she is a selfish person but I digress. The part that bothers me, is this...how Obama spends his time. He only had 20 mins to talk to BP.... but he has time for this? Again, I don't care about the Prom, or being gay... I just think there is far better ways for him to spend his time.
What Sane Man would list this as a priority, when the country is falling apart?

yes, when you ruin a entire schools prom because you want it your way, yes that is selfish. but that isn't even the point.
The Point isn't the gay issue... The Point is how Obama spends his time.

I'll bet there's more to that story than you know. I knew kids like that in high school, they did it for attention and the school probably said, "this is dumb, no."

Not saying that there's nothing to it but, there are always two sides.


Also, I agree with OP; this is retarded.

Obama, how about you get working on the oil spill and stop meeting with random people

Well you seem to like making it the point.

But hey, it's good to see you believe that discrimination should be continued because fighting against it is inconvenient for those not being discriminated against.

Pfft, it's just like the selfish *Negro - I mean, black people, in the 60's. Hah, civil rights! What a joke!

Thank you, She is most likely is gunning for her own reality show... I'm guessing Logo would pick something like that up. everybody want their 15 mins. Skip Gates got his own show on PBS after the beer summit, now She can get hers. I don't care about her.. This isn't a presidential issue, while a huge oil spill is.

For the record , i think president Obama is a lacklustre president [ to put it mildy ]

BUT - it is NOT the presidents job to atempt to micro manage EVERY facet of domestic and foreign policy - thats why he has a cabinet and a civil service , military etc etc

the president does not and should not NEED to devote himself to the oil spill issue - 24/7 - thats what delegation is for

carter was a micro manager - look where it got him

reagan announce what he wanted to happen - and let his subordinates get on with the details

Dude pull your head out and take a breath. Thats not even the point of the thread. Go make your own if you want to debate on the issue. This thread is about Obama spending his time with things that dont really matter at the moment. Not that the DONT matter, its just we have a #load of better things tho be doing right now. Like securing our barders and stoping a oil gusher, leak dosent work for me on this one.

Yeah, and you know what else gets my goat? All those black kids who ruined everybody else's school days back in the day when they were all like "hey, quit discriminating and let us go to the same school as white kids!"

of course you pull the race card. High School isn't the place to push Agenda's,
It is disruptive. you don't know anything about me... Some of my best friends are gay, and I love them. but I know If I were in her shoes...I would have done what was in the best interest of my friends and school, sometimes you got to take one for the team.

Then perhaps the OP shouldn't have made it an aspect of the thread by commenting on it in his first post.

Considering the OP wanted to discuss about the event in his first post, you'll be hard pressed to persuade me against bringing it up in this thread. Don't like it? Ignore me.

OK, I was wrong about that i just saw it a few months ago... flipping through channels...
I shouldn't have made that statement, but I never watch PBS

Sorry to burst everybody bubble here, but while I support that we are all equals, it makes me mad when one group of individuals ruin celebrations to the rest of those that have nothing to do with the issue been parade.

Prom is a time for teens to enjoy and celebrate the final step of finishing school not to force personal issues as gender preferences, racism and anything else that doesn't have anything to do with high school

Pfft, well that's funny considering the high school thought it did have something to do with gender preferences and other personal issues.

Cause ya know...that's where the whole problem came from?

I really can't rationalize how people can blame her for this. Although it isn't a surprise that the people who do rationalize this tend to either be against the rights the LBTG crowd should have or just "don't care".

I'm stepping in here BEFORE this turns into a mudslinging thread.

Stay on topic, discuss the facets of this story, but do not discuss each other and do not derail the thread.

OP:

You had to have known this topic would stir the type of controversy you're getting, just roll with it and maintain decorum(and that goes for everyone else too).

Thank you.

So, you would be ok with a school saying that a black guy can't bring a white girl and then an issue arrises and then the prom is closed? Boy those multi-racial couples are a bit of selfish pricks. No?

Or better yet. How about your child's school telling him/her that they can't take a white partner because your child is hispanic? Would you tell them to just "shut up and go along with the flow" so that the other students can enjoy their prom while discriminating against your child? I think not.

As for Obama. I agree with the OP in that this should be a non issue to the president when we have so much else to worry about.
