What you do in bedroom private? Not to Obama
Look what president now thinks is worthy of special treatment

Want a job with the federal government?
You may want to list your sexual orientation – preferably one of the alternative lifestyle choices – to enhance your chances.
That’s after an executive order signed by President Obama makes it a goal to hire people who reflect his ideals of “diversity and inclusion.”
Presidential Executive Order 13583, signed without fanfare on Main Street, has since been touted as an effort to strengthen America. It’s described by the administration:
A commitment to equal opportunity, diversity, and inclusion is critical for the federal government as an employer.
By law, the federal government’s recruitment policies should “endeavor to achieve a work force from all segments of society.
One federal executive praised the order, saying the “United States is at its strongest when we embrace all of our talents, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.”
In a nine-page strategic plan launched by Obama’s signature, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, within the Office of Personnel Management, set a new bar for the recruiting, hiring, and retention of federal workers:
As the nation’s largest employer, the federal government has an obligation to lead by example.
It goes on to say, “In order to cultivate high performing organizations for the 21st century, the federal government must tap into the rich resources of our global community and ensure fairness and justice in the workplace.”
So now the federal government apparently will be going overseas to hunt for workers who meet Obama’s ideals regarding sexual orientation or gender identity.
