Obama


I woke up this morning to NPR announcing that Barack Obama had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. What great news. Then I spent a couple of hours listening to liberals and conservatives talking about how he did not really deserve the honor. What a terrible thing for people to do. They did not make the decision. It is a world-wide honor and not something for people to attack. The liberals do not think that he is liberal enough and the conservatives think that he is too liberal. I think they should all go home and rethink their positions.

News that is just as good is that the hate crimes bill was attached to the defense spending bill and now it will pass finally after many years. It is the Matthew Shepard bill that makes it a crime to attack someone based on their sexual orientation. Again the conservatives are complaining but they must wage war so they don't have a choice.

Congratulations to President Obama and to all of the gay and lesbian people of America.
