I was terminated from my employment for reasons not pertaining to my work. Upon
hiring, did sign a paper that said I could be terminated for any unspecified
reason and at any time. The reason for my termination was that the bosses fiancee
has feelings for me and kissed me. This was on a Friday afternoon, away from work
and not on the clock.

If you signed this paper then you are bound by it. In fact, absent an employment contract or union agreement to the contrary, a worker can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. The only exception would be if some form of legally actionable discrimination was the reason for the dimissal.
