Putin addresses the Russian Parliament
On occasion I get a chill. There is this one nurse who works down at the waterfront clinic who comes up on occasion to help out whenever we have a staffing issue. Lately we have been agreeing more so than not. He is the most liberal person I know and whenever we agree on anything, it gives me a chill. This was no different. It wasn’t that long ago we were threatening each other with Nuclear annihilation. Now it seems that Putin is more in line with American values and common sense than we are. He gives a speech and it rings more true than what Obama says it gives me a chill. Who knew we’d be so off track in this country that Putin would sound right.
Putin’s Speech on Feb. 04, 2013
Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
“In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.
I too have to stand and give him credit. At least he knows what is tearing America apart and he knows what unifies a country.
