Gays in the Military: Why do you have to flaunt your sexual behavior in public?

After reading this little blurb, I only have one question?
Why do gay people feel that they have to display their sexual behaviors in public?
I've always been a firm believer of "What goes on in the bedroom stays in the bedroom." If two guys want to stick their joysticks in places not designed for joysticks, then that's their business, but I do draw the line when it comes to public displays of affection.

A soft kiss on the hand, or quick smooch in public is okay, but guys, girls, and those who haven't decided which sex you are: I don't want to know about what goes on in your bedroom, nor do I want to see it in public.

Do I think gays should be able to serve in the armed forces, yes. Do I think it should go further than that? No. Because war is not about Sex on the battlefield, it's about fighting and winning. Do I care if the top general or admiral might be as gay as a three dollar bill? No, but I don't need to hear about his or her sexual exploits.

Do I think gays and lesbians should be able to get married? No, because Marriage is a sacred institution, given to us by the creator in order to procreate.

Do I think it's okay for two committed gay or lesbians to have a relationship? Sure, but don't call it marriage, call it a civil union, call it a gayraige, or something. Don't insult my spirituality or my religion by calling it what it isn't.

Should gay or lesbians be able to adopt? Sure, if two adults are in a committed relationship and feel they can help raise orphans, go for it. I don't care.

Personally, I think the federal government should be out of the marriage game altogether and leave it to we, the people, do decide what our relationships are. It's not up suits in DC to tell you that you can't cohabitate, or get a job, or visit your companion in the hospital, or collect your partners insurance policy after they die. Those things are legalities that we all deserve, regardless of sexual orientation, but you don't have to take it out of the bedroom.

So, in this case, maybe don't ask, don't tell, isn't such a bad thing. After all if you don't ask me about what goes on in my bedroom, I won't ask you what goes on in yours.

President Obama gets Nobel Peace Prize

When I heard this, I was understandably confused and angered. I mean, what the hell has President Obama done to deserve a peace prize? Nothing. Nothing at all.

Since becoming president, he has done the following:
  1. Gone on the Obama's apology tour
  2. passed the bailout package that sent us into depression
  3. passed the cash for clunkers program
  4. bought out banks
  5. appointed thieves and socialists and communists as czars
  6. told Israel to stop building on their own land
  7. has not taken a firm stance against russia, iran, or Venezuela
  8. has attempted to put the ex-president of honduras back in power
  9. has tried to pass the medical reform bill that nobody wants
  10. has used the race card twice and insulted the harvard police by calling them stupid.
  11. has had one beer summit
  12. Has called patriotic Americans terrorist and cowards
  13. has all but ignored the general on the ground in Afghanistan
  14. has tried to get the olympics and failed
  15. has fired one Inspector general for accusing his friend of fraud.
  16. has broken laws that he himself has signed.
  17. has buddied up to hugo chavez and fidel castro
  18. is engaged in destroying our way of life.
So, in my honest opinion, he has done nothing that could even remotely entitle him to win the Nobel Peace Prize, and like his idol, Jimmy Carter, will probably use it to bash us over the head and further his socialist agenda.

It leads to an interesting question: What is the criteria for getting a Nobel Peace Prize? Is it selling out your country, or using your race to accuse everyone else to being racist, or maybe even running roughshod over the constitution?
